    Interesting how someone smart enough to make ten fortunes in business can be such a low life scum bag.

    He needs to be beaten with a 3' garden hose filled with sand every day for the rest of his life.

    Not to stand up for TT (or his ex POS wife) but the way I read it from the interview he was commenting more on the fact that these soldiers are feeling the guilt of taking human life and killing themselves. More so saying that it is wrong to kill and they as humans cannot live with that guilt applauding the soldiers moral code. Don't think he was showing any contempt for the US servicemen, just being a completely insensitive rich dousch...

    Umm...not that the topic video wasn't more shocking but did you see the "bizzare" Obama ad video on the right?

    As a veteran who considered suicide several times since my deployment, I can tell you that wasn't the reason why. Not even close.

    1st, I hope he did NOT say that (didn't click the link yet, not sure if my heart can take this...)

    2nd, if he did he would be such a total jackhole, man o man he'd be like puke with with poop.

    Here is some background information on Ted Turner, slime hole.


    • His father, Robert Edward Turner II committed suicide on March 5th, 1963. Sadly, he waited 25 years too late to do that deed.

    • His dad Robert enlisted in the Navy in 1941, taking his wife and Ted's sister with him to the gulf. Ted was left behind with relatives. It is reported that Ted felt "abandoned".

    • Ted's father was bi-polar (and possibly also bi-sexual, it has been rumored). He (Robert, aka "Ed") is also reported to have abused Ted for a number of years.

    • Ted Turner is himself bi-polar (hard to envision with all that free space floating in the cranium).

    • Dude has been married and divorced three times - clearly a bastion of stability.

    Ok. I got some green tea before I looked at the clip.

    When you get old, sometimes the jackhole in you suppresses common sense and decency.

    There is no misconstruing what he said, or what he meant. I would LOVE to send him a black and white striped outfit for his next safari hunt in Africa.

    At the very least his statement was grossly insensitive, false and lacking in any foundation based on fact or logic.

    At worst, he should simply consume copious quantities of fecal manner, and arrive at asystole as a result of asphyxiation. (eat ****, choke, and die).

    First I'd like to say thank you Lone Wolf for your serving. I served too but got out before the sand box party's... I don't understand the whole suicide issue not having walked in your shoes or having served in combat. Growing up in NYC as an Italian/Irish Catholic I expect the daily beat down of life and apperciate the rare occasion when things go smooth. My issue is trying not to end annoying ass hats who make a difficult life even more harder. Thru my strong faith I dismiss destructive thoughts thus saving myself and deserving others. Hope you have worked things out for yourself or have spoken with someone about the occasional suicidal thoughts. From your posts I feel that you are a pretty decent fella and it would be a shame to lose another vet and decent person. Good luck man.

    Here is is written out, for those who hate video as much as me.
    http://www.foxnews.com/us/2012/10/2...-suicides-outnumbering-combat-deaths-is-good/

    Beyond that comment, he shows a complete lack of understanding of war that would put him in good standing in GNG Lounge os Political Issues. Maybe he could discuss with Glock Talkers like Jeepx who think career soldiers are just welfare leeches. In short - everything you all say about him is true, but he's still no worse than plenty of members of GT. Probably better than some.

    Exactly. That was how I took it also when I heard the video.

    That said, the remark was totally inappropriate(even in the context it was made).
