For Our Resident Drunken Insect


Regarding the SolCal Shooter: Yes, he served in Afghanistan (Marine). Yes, it was a "hot" province (are they any others in that part of the world?). Yes, he was busier doing PR work than being the warrior he was trained to be.

Now Jiminy Cockroach thinks PTSD is somehow funny. Speaking from personal experience, it is not. It would be unwise of him to share his stupidity with an Ex-Military sufferer - we sometimes don't have the restraint we should.

But then, drunks can't control themselves very well, either.

Heard an interesting observation at the VA Med Center today: "I HATE it when someone says 'I know how you feel'".

Except for a small cadre, people have NO IDEA how a PTSD sufferer feels.

And, when someone says, " he was a nice fellow before he went into service now look what has happen to him; he is nothing but a drunk".

No one in civilian life has any idea what so ever happen to him.

Its a pity that the ones who feel that way toward our military men and women can't be sent over and let them find out for themselves what has changed these people who have been in a war.

Curious to learn what could have happened to this particular cold blooded mass murderer when he had been in military service? Should we defend a terrorist because he happened to be a retired military personnel?

I saw the wounds on Okinawa when they were dressed and cleaned up. A warm embrace my friend. Salute

Wangwei, if you cannot stand with our military they will welcome you to stand in front of them.

Yes, Cockroach. Ignorance is your strongest trait. Your first rambling dissertation on PTSD reminded us.

I agree 100%. Let's send your president over and let him find out.

Not all military are pro-Trump. Maybe they would welcome him to stand in front of them.

That's so funny. Give warriors a choice between shooting barry and Donald, and there wouldn't be enough left of barry to wipe up with a single square of toilet paper.

Ditto hilly.

No one is defending a mass murderer. Law enforcement is looking for reasons. Why? Because if this is someone who slipped thru a loophole at the VA health system, we can look to fix that. Instead, the usual suspects are trying to blame Trump. Had he used a rifle, they would still be screaming about " assault weapons" , which, btw, is not a firearms industry term, but one created by politicians.

The very ill man did not fit into the media and the Democrats convenient pigeon holes - he was not wearing a MAGA hat, did not use an AR-15, and was not a " right wing nut"- so they stopped talking about this. Funny how that works.

He was not "retired military personnel".

    I don't know what it is to have PTSD.....And I hope I never have to find out what it is to have Post Trump Stress Disorder.. I know I'll have the Stress just don't know about the Disorder.

    But then.. as I have been told..
    I don't know what it is to be Black, or illegal,
    I don't know what it is to be abused or be dirt poor...
    I don't know what it is to be r*ped, or a woman
    I don't know what it is to be oppressed and unequal, or a victim of society
    I don't know what it is to HATE or be HATED?

    I have been told.. what I know is shit... or I don't know shit...I wish people would make up their mind.
I've made up my mind.

Both are correct.
