    Presidential candidate John McCain is being hailed by the press as a genuine "American war hero" and says he has the medals to prove it.

    For 5 ½ years as a POW (three of which he says were spent in solitary confinement), the U.S. Navy awarded McCain a Silver Star, a Legion of Merit for Valor, a Distinguished Flying Cross, three Bronze Stars, two Commendation medals plus two Purple Hearts and a dozen service medals.

    And?

    That's admirable, but he still knows nothing about the economy or the difference between shi'a and sunni.

    I guess medals only matter when they're put on a right winger.......

    You mean Obama knows nothing about the economy?

    Obama said he will raise taxes on the rich and his proposal raises taxes on the middle-class. That is scary and dangerous for the world economy!

    McCain does not have such a problem. McCain has been serving his country for over 40 years and will not raise taxes on the middle-class.

    Obama is a ruby.

    What's Obama's tax plan -- which I agree will become the burden of the middle class, as usual -- got to do with McGrampa's service awards? :confused:

    How about they matter unless you throw them back at the country that gave them to you. You are responsible for your actions no matter how inconvenient that may become.
