    SR and two of our friends were at brunch at a pleasant little open air restaurant (I guess you could call it that) by the water off Casey Key, the Casey Key Fish House. We were talking about the upcoming election and our exalted leader. They both are Dems, but said that they have changed their mind with everything that is being revealed. He's ex law enforcement.

    The wife asked if we thought that the military generally would back the existing president as he is their CIC, or if they would support a Republican. I told her that most of the members of the military that I've encountered through business almost overwhelmingly did not support the Dems, particularly Clinton and Obama. I said that I thought both of those presidents did not treat the military with the proper respect.

    Some woman (my friend and I checked her as she left and we thought she had boobs) leaned across the aisle between tables and began grilling us. We weren't talking to her, but she kept up her socialist screed. She said that I probably only talked to officers, but that the non commissioned probably would support the dems. I was getting really aggravated at that point, because she started ranting about her wide travel experiences and how she knew everything.

    I've been in a bad mood with all this crap about the handling of Libya by the administration and was in no mood to suffer fools. She just kept it up and kept it up. Our friend kept replying to her. The woman identified herself as retired military. Her partner seemed to be very embarassed. When I turned around to get a good look at who was with her, the woman cringed and said that she didn't like talking about this. Nothing deterred the socialist rant of the other woman. She liked Obama because he's going to give free stuff, which we of course all deserve.

    Finally I had enough and did a quickie paragraph on how capitalism is, or was, the foundation of our country and a bunch of people sitting around waiting for their handout wouldn't turn us around. She kept it up about how wonderful Europe is.

    Before I would totally blow up (and I just wanted a quiet, relaxing lunch by the water), I turned my back on her and said that I'd like to resume the conversation between the 4 friends. She kept it up with my friend and dragged out way too many personal facts from her.

    Why is it that libs think that they can rudely listen to people's conversations and interject themselves into those talks? The woman was rude and deluded. They finally left, with the quiet one sort of slinking out of there. The aggressive, "male" partner led the way to their boat. Apparently, somewhere along the way, they acquired some cash to afford that boat.

    Oh, well, rant over.

    My dear SLW was getting a tad annoyed. And it was our turn to pick up the bill too.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    My gosh. They know they might be in trouble in a few days.

    I sorry this "woman" had to spoil your lunch. It sounds like it was very relaxing up to that point.

    Well you can tell her that this enlisted person knows exactly which candidate has his best interests in mind, and it sure ain't Obama.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    Thanks, knew she was wrong. It's a good thing she retired and is out of there.

    I've worked in sales to the military for years and rarely dealt with the officers. Most of the enlisted tended to be more conservative and definitely patriotic.

    If I haven't said it lately, thanks for your service, despite not getting the plum assignments. It's more of a tribute to you that you're still doing a good job despite the cr__.

    She's obviously an ignorant idiot and I doubt she is or was military. If so, she was one that the military was proud of the day she left.

    SLW,

    I'm so sorry to hear that a classless clod interfered with your lunch. You were in the right--I'm in San Diego and have yet to meet a marine who loves Obama.

    I wish I could send you a nice glass of merlot and a bubblebath.

    This is the best I can do:

    There are a few liberals in the military, and a few retirees, as well, especially among the Judge Advocates. She may have been retired military, but she was obviously a pain to her date, who you said seemed embarrassed by her. I'm sure that when she got back to her computer, she filled a bouncy, but if it's any consolation, her embellishments will make you out to be far more formidable, and your leap from the bushes will be absolutely terrifying.

    SLW, CBS poll;

    The poll conducted by the Military Times showed that among the 3,100 people surveyed, 66 percent support Romney compared to 26 percent for Obama.
    Just 2 weeks ago.

    Far as Europe being better, you should have turn around that and asked why is every European nation then switching to a more privatized healthcare system and getting away from the government run style? And if its so great, why are all but one bankrupt? Not to forget one last question. Why doesn't she live there now?
