Oddly (And Luckily) Enough, the One Card Not in My Wallet

…or I’d be sick.

…What was so disturbing was the email listed someone we all know- LTC(r) Allen West, and how the VFW, of all people, THE VEE-EFF-FRICKING-W, was ENDORSING HIS OPPONENT.

You read that right.

His opponent? Democrat Ron Klein. WHO HAS NEVER SERVED IN UNIFORM.

You read THAT right, too.

…Now, it seems, the time has come to rip, burn, and toss my Lifetime Membership for the VFW. I feel like they have completely left us at the station here. Over at the Farm Team, Jonn Lilyea lays out just who the VFW has announced they are supporting:

Barbara Boxer, Alcee Hastings, Barbara Lee, Steny Hoyer, Barbara Mikulsky, Chris VanHollen, John Dingell, Chuckie Schumer, Pat Leahy and Patty Murray

Call the VFW at 1-202-544-5868. Email them at: vfwpac@vfw.org.

Heard the phones are busy. If you belong to a local chapter, don’t let them off them hook ~ it’s YOUR dues allowing the national organization to sell you out. Raise hell!

    This is a prank. Right? Right?

    I joined the Legion, not the VFW, thank God.

    And I never will, after this.

  3. Skyler says:

    I have no affiliation or regard for the VFW, but I’m amazed that this man has been raised to such a cult hero status based on his idiotic and amateurish Jack Bauer imitation.

    I don’t mean to rehash how stupid he was and how idiotic his claim to be saving his men is, but he really has gone the way of Ollie North now. From blatant law breaker to cult hero in the eyes of many who don’t really examine what happened and only look at his posturing after the fact.

    Skyler, I disagree with your assessment. I support LTC West not because of a single instance in his military career, but for the totality of the man. His military service, his positions on the issues, and his moral clarity when it comes to terrorism.

    Under normal circumstances I have positive feelings about the VFW. They co-sponsor our Memorial Day parade with my Legion post. I’ve gotten care packages from them while deployed.

    But where did Dick Blumenthal defend his “mis-statements”? At the VFW post…

    I’ll have some thinking to do before I join them…
