twist all you want Christopher, you know that our comments don't have as much to do with a poor taste response as it does with the gall you have to mock others when you are guilty character assignation over and over in your bias comments, for a person who claims intelligence you sure do fall back on calling others d---b, or s--p-d a lot..

Hmmm... "WE?"..lol, does that make you feel better to be part of a very small, collective group? Or do you have more than one person down inside there somewhere? Are you sitting in front of a computer with a group? Interesting. Anyway, if I wanted to fight with someone, even Phil, it wouldn't be for Phil complaining about something as ridiculous as Santora's post on this particular thread.

Christopher, chew on this "people who live in glass houses should not throw stones" we did not support Santora, what we were pointing out how you attach people like Phil, twist things any way you please, we are sure of this, you believe your a legend in your own mind and have drank to much of the kool aid.

I am not a supporter of this young soldier's views, but he did serve our country and died a tragic death. So, I pray for him and anyone close to him. Santora, your comments are idiotic and you need to refrain from making them. Kindly place your head in your posterior.

Well, Rumblefish, I hate to say it, but by posting your comments on this particular thread, and because of my remark to Santora, after the ridiculous remark he made, then yes, I'd have to question your intelligence as well. I don't make comments at all about dead people, tragedies, race or skin color. Those that do, yep, you're right, I will call them out on it. I'm pretty happy with my attitude on those issues. I'm sorry you felt the need to support an idiotic comment by one of your clan.

Unlike many others, Christopher does not make personal attacks, but discusses the issues. He doesn't need to because he has facts to back him up. And as, I suspect, one of the few veteran's posting here, he knows what he is talking about regarding having a medic there in combat.

Christopher: talk about the pot calling the kettle black, we have observed on numerous occasions you have attached the intelligence of others and have leveled personal attacks on commenters that you don't agree with, yet you have the nerve to criticize a poor taste comment by someone else, really, really, we have said it before and will repeat it here, when we look in the mirror we thank our maker that your reflection does not stare back at us

Deepest condolences to the family and to the community that produced such an OUTSTANDING young man. Darren was a wonderful, caring soldier, activist and human being. The world lost one of the good ones.

My deepest sympathies to his family and friends. My thoughts and many prayers are with you.

A huge THANK YOU for your service to our Country....and for EQUALITY for all.

and Santora...I care...and I am not his widow or widower...or whatever. I care because he was a fellow citizen...one that gave his service to OUR country...and worked for equality for all. To me..he is one of many unsung heroes....

Santora, I bet you are a radical rightie that just adores service men except of course those "others"

Santora, you really are a jerk! The guy was a MEDIC. You might not understand the importance of that unless you'd been in a firefight. If you have, and could still bash and disrespect a combat medic in such a way, I really don't have anything to say, you're beyond help.
