The Cat in the Hat Joins OYE

Maybe Uncle Sam was too strong of a character for Mr. DeWinter and Mr. Antonopoulos and this recruiting poster is more appropriate.

Still haven't heard from Wek concerning where he is currently serving.

"When Raymond was discharged, he was told his name would be included on a list of what’s called the Individual Readiness Reserve."

My name was included on the IRR list in 1986. This is nothing new.

Leigh- thanks for your 'concern'.

Groenhagen- I am not currently serving, nor have I ever served. I attempted to enlist in the Army earlier this decade and was rejected due to a medical condition I was diagnosed with in my late 20's. It was the Army's decision not to accept me, not mine.

Groenhagen, you'd rather side with those war supporters who haven't enlisted?

Groenhagen, put your money up. Have you got $50,000 cash?

Are you a man?

Bet up, bitch.

100K? 200K?

Bet up, bitch.

I'm a man. My word is gold.

You?

so what he's trying to say is that he's a pussay. The fact that you tried and failed makes you look so much worse. Just pretend like you never tried. This is case where your best wasn't good enough and you should hide your shame from everyone.

Groenhagen, it's time for you to fess up.

Tell us about your wife and children. They left you, didn't they? That's a yes or no question.

Tell the truth.

You spend your days arguing with your betters on the net and pulling your little pud to internet porn. That's a yes or no question.

Tell the truth.

Who is raising your children while you do this?

You don't have the money to man-up and bet. When confronted with the truth of the matter, all you can do is don a sissy outfit and complain about spelling errors.

Where is my money, bitch?

LOL.

Leigh,

Interesting viewpoint on my situation- those that seek to join the Army but don't make it past the medical form should feel shame. Yet 'brave' CR's that never see the inside of a recruiting station are just fine in your eyes....very interesting.

Nope, no shame from me. I have no regrets meeting with the recruiter. In fact it has given me even more respect for those that do join the Military. The behind the scenes thinking one does before contacting a recruiter is enormous. Much more than I could have ever imagined. Anyone that goes on to raise their hand and take the oath has my sincere respect.

OYE, I realize my recent comments to the troll have been rude and inflammatory. Pardon me, please.

The troll you're speaking of has been provocative to the extreme.

I'm not a violent person, I've broken up many more fights than i've ever participated.

However if this troll had approached me in the same fashion in person they would need to pick Groenhagen up with a blotter.

Leigh's belief that it's better to never try in the first place than to try and fail. Makes him really sound like a pampered, sheltered little boy who has never had to strive for anything.
Thenks for living down to your stereotype Leigh

Excuses, excuses. Now we're starting to get a better picture of the folks behind this OYE nonsense.

How you considered professional help? And I did not correct a spelling error. I noted that you used the wrong word, which I suppose in your mind is a greater offense than you calling me a "moron." Of course, an intelligent person would not have used "flout" instead of "flaunt."

Groenhagen flouts the rules of civil discourse and flaunts his ignorance.

Groenhagen talks tough, but he can't even handle criticism on his own turf. This big baby has comment moderation enabled on his Kansas Media Watch blog!

But you have been leaving ignorant comments on my Sins of the Husband blog, which, unlike Kansas Media Watch, I have mentioned here.

Isn't Leigh a girl's name?

Leigh, you've really earned a special place of infamy amongst the Yellow Elephants. A guy who is too cowardly to serve but helps smear those who did serve.
I'd just like to let you know that I consider you an embarrassment for all of Northern California.

Leigh is a first ballot entry into the Yellow Elephant Hall of Lame

I note that Leigh uses his real full name, but you don't. Who's the coward, Green Baboon? In fact, few of you Green Baboons use your actual names. Are you afraid that if you did, people would find out that you're merely young Democrats who never served a day in uniform?

OK Groeny , have it your way.

I don't make much of an effort to conceal my identity.

You already know my name.

If you really believe I am lying about my military service, Then perhaps you should alert my friends and neighbors to this alleged "fraud" being perpetrated in their midst.

After all, I could be one of those "phony soldiers" that Rush talked about.

Heres the contact info for my local papers.

editor@eurekareporter.com

and

http://www.times-standard.com/

That's the info ,I make no promises after that.

Just make sure you use your real name.
