VA ("Death Book") Website Now Calls Ted Kennedy a Veterans Hero
Propogandists at VA ^ | http://www.va.gov/

Hey, Veterans. Guess what, the Obamanist Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) -- home of your friendly "Death Book" which the department is still supporting -- has converted the entire front page of its website to propoganda news-release-machine for Obama shills.

Top of the List? No, not the fake-hero bigmouth Tammy Duckworth who defended the "Death Book" (although they are sending her around to Vets groups to push Obamanism) -- but that great HERO OF VETERANS -- THAT DRUNK CORRUPT DRUG USER -- THAT LEFTIST CHAMPION OF OBAMANISM -- TED KENNEDY.

This is the statement of the current secretary, a midget former Army general named Shinseki from Obama's alleged home state of Hawaii. Anybody ever serve with this guy Shinseki? Share what you know about him. We have to figure out who this guy is who's publishing the "Death Book" and calling Ted Kennedy (?!) the hero of Veterans.

Tell us everything you know about Obamanist SHINSEKI. Get the word out to Vets. We don't care what the Army and Obamanist BS propoganda is about Shinseki. We want the truth from real guys who served with or under him.

Ted served two years in the US Army stationed in Paris. He rose to the rank of Private.

Ted DID serve in uniform though it never amounted to anything.

Hey n00b, nobody dislikes what Ted Kennedy stood for more than I, but he DID serve in uniform (United States Army) and he IS a veteran, whether we like it or not.

Consider having the mods edit your post or zot the thread, k?

Ted Kennedy

http://www.nndb.com/people/623/000023554/

Bio here, including Army service 1951-1953. Mistakenly signed for 4 years, daddy got him down to two, entered a Private and discharged a Private.

Paris??

Wonder what went on there?

WHO IS SHINSEKI? Need to hear from the guys who served with or near him. Need the real skinny. Not Obamanist propaganda.

Conspired with the KGB at the height of the cold war. Used family connections to avoid service in a war zone, so that some other soldier may have died in his place. Really a vile piece of exrement and no hero of this veteran.

I will not speak ill of the dead.
"Iraq is George Bush's Vietnam."
"We now learn that Saddam’s torture chambers reopened under new management - US management."
"There was no imminent threat. This was made up in Texas, announced in January to the Republican leadership that war was going to take place and was going to be good politically. This whole thing was a fraud."
Enough said.

Nobody said he was a hero.

The original post said he never served a day in uniform.

Factually incorrect.

Shineski is the General who as CJCOS ordered black berets for all soldiers, making the rangers go to tan berets.

Reason given, Soldiers in the special forces have high self esteem, it must be the berets. In order to raise the normal troops self esteem I'll give them berets. Total liberal everyone is special crap.

Amending my previous post to you...nobody said he was a hero for serving. Apparently the VA website proclaims him a hero for trying to look out for Veteran’s needs.

As a veteran he is entitled to a military honor guard and interment at Arlington if he desires it.

He also communicated with the Soviets during the Reagan presidency to stifle the administration.

Nope, you have to be KIA or have a PH, MOH, Silver Star, etc or be retired military to get buried at Arlington as a vet, so he wouldn’t get buried there from his two years of service alone. He’s getting buried there because he was a senator...anyone who held elected office of the US government can be buried there.

"Ted served two years in the US Army stationed in Paris. He rose to the rank of Private."

That was his daddy's punishment for getting kicked out of Harvard for cheating. He actually wrote a book about his military exploits, "30 Seconds Over Brigitte Bardot".

entered a Private and discharged a Private.

Only the first two ranks, E-1 and E-2 are known as "privates".

Private First Class or E-3 was Ted's rank when he left the military, he was not still a private.

Fine.

Entered a Private and discharged a Private First Class.

Stands corrected.

I had received that original designation from someone I thought knew.

Ted Kennedy was a veterans' hero for two reasons:

1) Because he didn't stay in the service long enough to get any real men killed.

2) Because no real men were court marshaled for righteously fragging their own treasonous officer.

That used to be true for all Veterans, but no longer. Now only connected Vets get that honor. They had to dig some crony of Clintons up after it became public knowledge, don't remember the name though.

Ain't the internet grand...

Larry Lawrence, who contributed more than $200,000 to the Democrats between 1991 and 1996, became a close personal friend to the Clintons. The president and first lady sometimes vacationed with Lawrence and stayed at his house in San Diego San Diego (săn dēā`gō), city (1990 pop. 1,110,549), seat of San Diego co., S Calif., on San Diego Bay; inc. 1850. San Diego includes the unincorporated communities of La Jolla and Spring Valley. Coronado is across the bay. . Clinton appointed his pal ambassador to Switzerland and delivered a eulogy at his funeral.
