    Honoring America's Veterans Act

    wonder how the Faux News pundits will cover this? what kinda spin will they put on this one? moreover, will republicans support the president's signing of this bill? or will they play it off and call him a muslim, communist, etc... the same old tired moronic rhetoric we've heard since day one. today and this act was a win for America and all of us serving our country in the US military. proud of my commander in chief. :cool:

    How is a law which unconstitutionally restricts the 1st amendment rights of a group of Americans a, "Great law?" Because it makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside?

    Restricting the rights of yet another group that isn't popular. Great laws, indeed.

    Great law? In what way. Please do explain with particular attention to exactly what in your estimate makes this a "great law." You will of course be graded on the content and quality of your work. Apply yourself.

    I didn't like the protests either, but don't buy for a minute BHO gave a dang about the fallen serviceman. He signed it because it might give him some votes PLUS it's another poke in the eye of the Constitution.

    My biggest regret in 28 years of military service was that BHO signed my retirement certificate!

    He signs a law restricting the first amendment. That's something to celebrate? This will just end up in the courts again. Do I like it/them? Hell no. But they do have consitutional rights.

    Yet, the Feds tell the states to "go easy" on the OWS demonstrators who actually violate laws.

    Nothing to see here, move along.

    Anything it takes to justify to yourself violating the Constitution.

    Where in the Constitution is our right to not be offended enumerated?

    A win for your fellow soldiers that the rights they fight to protect are being stripped away from Americans by the very government who employs them to fight to protect said rights?

    Yeah, theres some bass akwards reasoning if I ever heard it.

    I do believe that would be one certificate that would never be displayed in my home. I truly loathe that man, and I'm glad I ETS'd when I did.

    You make a good point. It doesn't really matter that our economy has tanked under Obama. It really doesn't matter that he has increased our debt to an unsustainable level. It doesn't matter that we have ten to twenty percent (depending on calculation method) of our populaton unemployed. It doesn't matter that real estate prices just keep falling. It doesn't matter that personal wealth of families keeps dropping. It doesn't matter that more and more people are on welfare every month. It doesn't matter that he has no coherent foreign policy. It doesn't matter that he has funneled hundreds of millions of dollars to political cronies and campaign contributors, many whom live overseas. It doesn't matter that he has filled his administration with people with questionable backgrounds who are not qualified and show it in every decision they make. It doesn't matter that his justice department is a joke and seems at times to be covering up as many crimes as they are uncovering.


    And, mostly, it doesn't matter that he seems to have no clue what to do about any of these things.

    No, what is important is that he signed a bill to stop a bunch of nuts from protesting at funerals.

    You have convinced us. Please ask ACORN to mail us several absentee ballots in different names so we can vote several times for Obama.

    Do me a favor and don't speak for the US military. We took an oath to "support and defend the CONSTITUTION". You might want to read it.

    Then read up about his administration suing the state of Ohio (curiously a very important state with a close race) because they give special voting treatment to military members serving over seas.

    This is a great response. Unfortunately rational thought doesn't have any effect on people like this.

    I'm an independent, and would be glad to give a man, or a president, credit where credit is due.

    This is simply a violation of the 1st amendment and I would love to see this get eaten by the Supreme Court.

    So violating the 1st ammedmendment to the Constitution is "honoring troops" yeah that's pretty much par for the course from this President.

    It is aimed at the sleaze-nut Fred Phelps and co.

    They won in the Supreme Court last year, but don't let that stop Obama. He doesn't give a damn about the 1st Amendment.
