It doesn't matter if (there are) veterans (who) are 'welfare whores'. The people WE elected sent them to hell, to defeat enemies who'd love to see us dead. Welfare is the absolute LEAST we owe them. It's a shitty start, but it's a start. And seriously, you have the right to complain and insult them when you've had experiences just as goddamn bad, for just as goddamn long. I'd love to see the complete and total wreck you'd be. I freely admit, I'd probably be worse. Also blame the right...

I'd love to see the complete and total wreck you'd be. I freely admit, I'd probably be worse. Also blame the right people, the people who serve in the military didn't start or escalate the wars, the politicians did, and then sent them to fight and die in them. And then they turn around and screw us all over. And you rage at the people who've been fighting to keep hell on the other side of the ocean. And complain that they need help to heal psychologically from the wounds we were complicit in sending them to receive (we weren't trying to prevent anyone from receiving them).

My son just got home from Afghanistan, fighting for, I am not sure what. Veterans deserve better! Politicians are the ones that can go straight to hell for screwing up our country filling their pockets with tax payers dollars while the rest of us wonder how we are going to pay our bills and survive.

After reading some of these comments, I am amazed at the bullsh*t rhetoric spewing from peoples keyboards. Those of you that do not feel the wars we have been are unjust and wrong, cool glad to hear your opinions. But when a individual puts their life on hold to serve in the military of any branch, whether peace time or war, deserve respect. Unlike some of the lazy, undeserving, welfare scamming, entitlement minded pieces of sh*t that are sucking our country dry deserve.

The wars being fought and the soldiers fighting them are two completely different things. I think the wars America is in, are just plain wrong, as well as complete and total Bullsh*t, but the soldiers, the human beings out there, fighting, aren't responsible for them, and they deserve so much better from us. If they weren't soldiers, and you met them, and they had the same wounds and diagnoses, wouldn't you want them to receive help? So why be so against it when you were complicit in sending...

So why be so against it when you were complicit in sending them to receive those wounds and diagnoses, and just being sent to receive those wounds/diagnoses gets in the way of getting that help without aid? (The argument only holds water if you didn't vote for the person who didn't declare war, vocally oppose the move to war, and actually know the implications of PTSD, depression, and other combat-induced wounds and injuries.)

I believe in fighting for freedom, but in this day & age, I really don't know WHAT we are fighting for anymore. It seems as though they aren't fighting to win; they are fighting to "profit" from it. So they have to keep the fighting machine going.

No they should stay, they should just be saying it to the veteran's and their family's faces. So that when they need help for the ensuing medical expenses, they have the opportunity to realize that they are now in the same boat, and decide whether or not they're 'welfare whores' now too.

Freedom of speech is one thing...to demean an individual who puts his life on the line for his country should NOT be given the freedom to do so...PERIOD.

And all you anti-war knuckleheads can kiss my ass.

You're nothing but a bunch of gut-less cowards sitting behind a computer screen without any clue OR balls!

Try thanking a veteran who has given you the freedoms to be cowards on a computer!

Why don't you all signing this petition actually read the constitution? It states clearly that we all as Americans have freedom of expression. According to most of you, the troops fight to uphold this, they don't. I'm an Iraq War Vet and I didn't fight for anyone's freedom. Not once. Instead of crying like little sissies, how about just not look at it? It's THAT simple. I used to be like you guys, in fact, I am currently banned from this page. If you actually think about what they are...

If you actually think about what they are saying, rather than letting your emotions cloud your logic, you would see that they make sense. Creating a petition to have it removed is pretty sissy-fied.

In fact, it would be great if I were invited to comment on that page once again, as there are plenty of discussions that I would like to be a part of.

that is fine Ryan and I appreciate your comments, I just believe you that served didn't decide on where to be or what war you were in and don't feel people that served should be talked about when all you did was enlist is my point...

What is posted AT times on TTAWW is not covered under U.S. Constitution Amendment I. So learn what is & isn't covered by what you TRY to fall back on..."Amendment I" It is sad that someone would make an awful page,ban those with different views .Yet cry when someone actually uses the 1st Amendment the right way/ To fight back against your crap
