We don't know that the guy didn't serve, or failed to serve honorably. It doesn't matter. Military service isn't a guarantee of intelligence or insight. The armed forces have produced more than a few people who were superb at their jobs, but clueless when it came to politics or other areas of their lives. USMC General Smedley Butler was a prime example. He was a brilliant Marine and was one of the few men in American history to receive the Medal of Honor twice, but politically, he was a paranoid loon and communist who invented fantasies of military coups by rightwing cabals. That doesn't diminish his service. This DUmpster may have been the second coming of Audie Murphy, and if so, more power to him, but he's an idiot now. The DU OP demonstrates that while all tankers are DATs (Dumb-Ass Tankers), there are some who abuse the privilege beyond all recognition. (For the record, as an enlisted 19D, I used to call tankers DATs until the M1 came along, and they became C-DATs (Computerized Dumb-Ass Tankers), but it was done with affection, and when I went to Armor OBC after OCS, I had to become one myself.)
BTW, know how many DATs it takes to change a lightbulb?
Four: One to hold the bulb, one to traverse the turret, and two to ground guide. :D
[QUOTE=JB;475557]And you think that gives you the right to disrespect the service of someone that served honorably but not in a combat zone?
I disrespected no one. Just made an observation.
You trying to say I disrespected anyone is as stupid and moronic as when you failed miserably to assert that I was an ass kisser to Gator.
School board. And I won. Was the treasurer for a friends run at County Constable too.Have you ever run for elected office? If not, you need to stop commenting on politicians.
Been in the delivery room and at every OB/GYN appt. for four beautiful children.Have you ever been pregnant or given birth? If not, you need to stop criticizing women that have had abortions.
That was a man? She told me she was married to you! :eek:Have you ever had sex with a man? If not, you need to stop criticizing homosexuals.
The only thing around here that is ridiculous...actually pretty damn pathetic...is a so called Conservative using Libtard "gotcha" tactics...and failing as miserably as the Libtards to.See how ridiculous those examples sound? That's what you sound like.
That kind of arrogant and ignorant bullshit might work on a clueless dimwit where you're from...but it doesn't work on people that have a brain.
You disrespect their service.
As for the rest, well, sometimes you try and explain things in the simplest of terms but the simple still do not get it.

Fuck you I did no such thing. Once again you're making up things I supposedly said that never happened.You disrespect their service.
How'd that work out for you lat time you made that accusation?
Yes I do try to explain things in the simplest terms...if you don't get it...I'll try writing in crayon next time.As for the rest, well, sometimes you try and explain things in the simplest of terms but the simple still do not get it.
