Cowboys Statium to Host Chris Kyle Memorial ...

... they are treating him like some sort of mega-hero, giving him a memorial service at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas.

Of course they will...

And the lame street media will sell it to the sheeple and ask for donations.

But these same lame street idiots will ignore the fact that this man created 300 orphans in the name of amerikan/global imperialism.

its 'cos I owe ya, my young friend...
Rockin' the FREE world in Tennessee since 1957!

Is Dorner a hero?

According to Senator Paul he must be. Like all Americans who don the uniform he is a hero.

Someone should tweet Senator Paul and ask him to describe the actions of this latest hero.

During the interview segment of the miniseries Band of Brothers, Richard Winters quoted a passage from a letter he received from Sergeant Mike Ranney, "I cherish the memories of a question my grandson asked me the other day when he said, 'Grandpa, were you a hero in the war?' Grandpa said 'No… but I served in a company of heroes.'"

Major Richard D. Winters (January 21, 1918 – January 2, 2011)

"I, __________, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oath_of_enlistment

There is no duration defined in the Oath

Well if so then he's a DEAD hero now!

What what

Hero my ass.

Definitely a ZERO who will indeed be rotting in Hell for the murders he committed and rationalized.

I forgot to add

And anybody who is stupid enough to call this man a hero will probably suffer the same fate in the afterlife. Yes Rand, that includes your political ass.

I'm Reminded of Syndrome

...from "The Incredibles" movie: "When I'm old and I've had my fun, I'll sell my inventions so that everyone can have powers. Everyone can be super! And when everyone's super... no one will be."

Thanks Rand... for defining heroism further downward.

I am bookended by excellent posts.

And I love being in the middle of what trisport and RonzdaMan said!

If we define a hero

as someone who kills innocent people for money then we are lost as a people...and evidently we are.

Want to own Ron's shirt? Tie? Book?

Ron & Carol Paul are helping us with our Storey County GOP fund raising. Carol sent us one of Ron's shirts, ties & autographed book. Go take a look!

C'mon Rand...

Don't be a sap.

How many principles are you willing to abandon just to make Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Michael Medved, and FOX News be nice to you?

Personally I wouldn't care what any of those rat bastard, Neo-Con, war-monging, Arab-haters thought about me.

In fact, if they hated me, I would wear it as a badge of honor.

And a gauge to know if I was on the right track.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

Why are all of you...

fighting over such trivial things? Each man is entitled to his own opinion. For god's sake, or money is being stolen and innocent people around the world are being killed by us! Have you forgotten?

The problem is

Rand is not calling it murder, in fact he is calling the people who commit such acts "heros".

There are people that went overseas and did bad things for this country, but when they returned they seen the evil of their ways and preached against the killing- These are the heros that Rand should be pointing out.

Fkn Bastard(has to be).

I'm getting sick and tired of Rand Paul

Every since the day he asked for a ride on AF1.

"like all Americans who don

"like all Americans who don the uniform to defend our country"

I always hate pointing this out. Rarely does anyone join the military "to defend our country" or for patriotic reasons. I've asked many people why they are joining, or why they joined, over the years.

The reasons are always...

- They have a family with no means to support them
- They have child support with no way to pay it
- They are unable to find a good job in the private sector
- They wanted to take advantage of the GI Bill for college money
- They were going to end up homeless and had no other good options
- To be able to shop on base and for other benefits such as health care (common answer from those in the reserves).

NEVER have I ever had anyone, in response to my asking "Why did you join?", say "Because I love this country," "To defend our country," "Because I'm patriotic," etc, etc.

It sounds good in a tweet from a politician, but it's not the truth.

...

tired of unemployment was . . .

the reason my son joined five years ago. Fortunately he got injured before going overseas and got out--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Also,

-I was in with some bad people, I needed to get my head straight.
-There were few opportunities and I wanted to travel.

I don't support the troops. Support only gives them the idea that they are actually heroic and doing good. I look away if they tell me about it. I have a hard time looking them in the eyes after that. I avoid them at all cost.

Just lip service. Its

Just lip service. Its annoying but necessary as most of the questionable things Rand has done lately are.

Sniper

Unless it is self defense I see little honor in it imo.

donvino

True, although...

...it's a good skill to have in the genpop, which is probably why they offed him as they prep for whatever it is they are planning to bring down on us.

I enjoyed speaking with you last week

and now I am now asking a favor, it seems to me that I am seeing that the DP is having difficulty funding itself so I have created a post http://www.dailypaul.com/273372/calling-all-friends-of-liber...

in hopes that we Friends of Liberty can do something or think of something to keep this place going. I hope if you have a chance you can stop by and perhaps add an idea.

I sent in my $20!

:D

Yes, I sent in $25 and upped my subscription

but it still seems like the fundraising is slow. What if our $20 and $25 are not enough? I was wondering...would I pay a buck to log into the DP today? Probably, but I certainly dont have $30 monthly subscription. My husband balked at the extra $5 I was asking for...in the guise to get a picture next to my post. So I was trying to figure out if there was a way to raise money that would not come out of our pockets, or maybe a buck here or a buck there someone might put in.

All US Citizens in Uniform are NOT HEROS!

If so Major Nidal Malik Hasan, who Murdered 13 of his own (Fort Hood), is a Hero.

I'm not doubting that Chris Kyle was a Hero to the men and women he helped protect overseas, of course he was, but I am doubting how much of a Hero he was to the US Constitution.

In what manner is any of our Military (today), especially overseas, supporting and defending the US Constitution against enemies foreign and domestic?

While the US Military is deployed around the world Supporting and Defending the US President and Crony Capitalism (aka Fascism), there is little Supporting and Defending of the Constitution going on here at Home against DOMESTIC Enemies.

Where are the Heroes in the US Military actively Defending the Constitution?

My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Kyle.

He is entitled

to say what he feels about the issue.

I agree with his statement AND I also agree with Ron Paul's original tweet.

Why are so many of you unable to exist in a world of tension?

"Once you become knowledgeable, you have an obligation to do something about it."- Ron Paul

So you consider Tim McVeigh a

So you consider Tim McVeigh a hero? How 'bout drone pilots, the soldiers at My Lai, Marines who throw puppies off cliffs? How 'bout Ed Routh, Chris Kyle's killer? He a hero too?

Ron Paul's tweet

wasn't meant to insinuate that this man was a hero or not. He was just stating a fact that if you make this your way of life it might come around some day and be your death.

All service men and women (including my father and Ron Paul) believe they are heroes serving their country.

I don't know what it was in the case of Chris Kyle but the general statement that those who serve their country are heroes isn't wrong.We were not there we don't know if Chris Kyle killed actual terrorists or innocents.

"Once you become knowledgeable, you have an obligation to do something about it."- Ron Paul

kyle's only regret

was that he didn't kill more 'savages' ..

there's a review of his book at pro liberte that will give you a clear picture.

here's that review. some hero
