I simply do not vote for office. I refuse to. I'm not the only one either, many military members don't vote for office. I vote when it comes to taxes, millage increases, etc. But with the way politics has become these days and with the selection of canidates who run for office, there's no point. You either get a womanizer who spends out the ass on earmarks and other useless crap or you get a two faced, flip floping liar who tells you one thing and means another. With that in mind, what can you do? Either way its a disappointment.
And some may wonder why. Anti LEO rapper, refusing to enforce and suport those who enforce immigration laws. Wishy-washy attorney general.
Give me the old school retired LEO's any day....those are the guys I looked up to, and still do. The president did a great disservice to the law enforcement profession by not showing up....
Personally, I came to this site to share with others in the LE community. I love law enforcement, I'm 3rd generation law enforcement, but it makes me absolutely sick that this entire site is governed by a few retired LEO's who bash and berate those who don't agree with them. This country was founded on the principal of free speech. If you don't agree with someone, debate with them. Don't go around the site bashing them and calling them "morons" or "idiots" when you don't know them. If you have a problem with what I have to say or what my "political views" are then PM or email me and I'll be happy to discuss it with you.
Where is your vote going? Remember what you post in this article when you go to the polls.
He hangs out with Common and does not attend the Police Memorial to speak to the family and friends of the officers that made the ulimate sacrafice. What's so hard to figure out here??
I'm not surprised. He reather be golfing than paying his respects to any fallen HERO
bump coreylovesandrea. Complete disrespect by the President to LE everywhere.
It's a sorry state of affairs that the Head of the Free World would be so "BLATANTLY CALLOUS" to the Families of the Defenders of The Streets who lost a Family Member Defending Our Freedom.
circle8 the above is all I could come up with as a caveat to your "EXCELLENT DESCRIPTION" .
I can not read these comments without adding my two cents. This man they call obama has never shown any respect for the US of A. He refused to honor the flag (did not want to take sides), his dislike of the military is on record and he even called the USMC the "Marine Corpse" A first grade child knows that is wrong. He bows to foreign leaders especially the King of Saudi Arabia and Chinese leaders. All Muslims of a certain group must bow to the King of S.A. I have lived and worked in S.A. after my retirement. Note: The Chinese think he is a joke and the political cartoons from there are not just poking fun but real insulting for ANY country's leader. He has had more vacations than any other man in the white house. Has played more golf than the last few COMBINED. He has funneled money to our enemies and associates with anti American groups including George Soros. For those who believe he is a Christian have you noticed the white house dog goes on aircraft wherein the obama's don't go. Islamic beliefs is a dog is dirty and can not travel with Muslims. His wife dos not go to Islamic countries because she is not recognized by them because she is a westerner or more specific an Infidel. Folks the fact is obama is a Muslim. White house prayer day has been cancelled BUT Islamic prayers are held at the white house with many Inman's and other Muslims invited. I don't care about the birth certificate thing because he is already there so it is too late to worry about that. I DO CARE about the USA and he is destroying it If any of you had read his two books before 2008, as I did, you would know and understand about this POS in the white house. He does not deserve any respect because he has NOT EARNED it. Semper Fi. Remember Memorial Day.
As usual you can't simply answer a question. I am done with speaking to people who cannot state their points in a discussion without muddying the waters with other agendas.
P.O.S. and as has been mentioned previously by someone else you can bet your bottom dollar the nobama will be there come election time. All politicians stink but this one is the worst. Does he deserve my respect? I think not. Does the office? Sure, I guess if he is doing what is right for the nation and not just his political affiliations. And that's for both sides. This guy let an anti-LEO rapper into the WH during Police Week, then instead of taking the time to honor OUR fallen he decides to play golf and some of you defend him on THIS site? WTF over?
i like the bumps add ons...
donna, answer: no.
by saying "all" you imply a lot. if you only speak with like-minded people then naturally you will think that the whole profession feels the same way you do. i am a LEO and i wasn't offended as well as several other i work with. i have had discussion with some who were offended but they admit that they simply don't him in the first place. i don't personally know the man so all i can do is respect him. as i do everyone. respect goes a long way. and its not EARNED all the time. you should treat folks how you want to be treated.
i don't mix religion and politics. our basic government installed God in places before we came around. "One Nation, Under God..." "in God we trust..." you say the pledge at every service. my Code of Ehtics mentions serving God as i'm sure most of y'alls does too. there is no gray area there.
on the police week site, it says that police week is the week the May 15th is in. that would be this week since its commonly agreed that the week starts on Sunday. sooooo, i thought iwas last week when the poem was read? dunno. we had our memorial during the first week of May. a few officers have traveled to DC for this weeks FOP events.
again, if someone were to point out that i was being disrespectful by playing soccer tonight with the kids at the boys and girls club that would be wrong.
You never forget them, however you HONOR them by SERVING.
