Although we wait the controversial announcement of the Presidents Health Care Bill, there will be at least one additional ruling before that announcement by the Supreme Court.
One of the announcements will be the ruling on the fact that lying about military medals you didn’t earn is or isn’t a Federal crime.
The Stolen Valor Act, which passed Congress with overwhelming support in 2006, apparently has been used only a few dozen times, but the underlying issue of false claims of military heroism has struck a chord in an era in which American soldiers are fighting two wars.”
In California, The federal appeals court struck down the military medals law on free speech grounds, and appeals courts in Colorado, Georgia and Missouri are considering similar cases. (Thus I will never live in any of these states….vomit).
A proposal in the House of Representatives would amend the law to apply only when the deception is aimed at getting something of value in return.
Here is a thought, any jackwagon out there that wants to wear a military medal is doing it for one cause and that’s to gain additional respect for his fake heroism. He can only “gain” positive attributes/value if he fools people into thinking he was awarded the medal so the above “A proposal in the House of Representatives would amend the law to apply only when the deception is aimed at getting something of value in return.” Is total Bullshit.
You want to wear medals; you want to wear Marine Dress Blues? I suggest you rethink that action otherwise I suggest you grab a weapon and join the Marine Corps and try to keep up with our young heroes that are actually earning the medals. Otherwise I don’t give a damn what medals you think you have earned (there’s that Col Jessep in me coming out again). I
The fact that this is even at the Supreme Court level depicts the lackadaisical mediocre attitude Colorado, Georgia, Missouri and apparently a significant percentage of society has and towards our war heroes. Free Speech? Are you shitting me, some snot nose lawyers are going to use “Free Speech” to validate and justify pieces of maggot scum portraying themselves as war heroes. WTF is happening in America? If the Supreme Court rules anything but falsely wearing medals you didn’t earn is a Federal crime, we immediately lessoned the value and respect for all Americans that were awarded medals in the military. Explain that to the mother who has her sons Purple Heart on her mantle instead of her son at home.
I hate to say it America but if I had $50 I didn’t know what to do with or had to use ever cent of to subsidize my already sparse military pay, I would bet on two things, 1) The court will rule in favor of the bleeding heart fake medal wearers and 2) We fall under a new Health Care system. Hope I’m wrong.
Nonetheless, be forewarned, if you are wearing a military medal and my gut tells me you’re a fraud, I will approach you, I will ask you ass bleeding details about it, then while exposing you for the fraud you are I will make you wish you never conceived the ridicules thought of portraying one of our Nations heroes. I’ll be the one with a cigar and short haircut! Semper Fi!
Time for a CGar!
