Crash and Burn - Military Edition

I'm sure everyone has heard about the guy who cold-cocked the protester in the red, white, and blue shirt at a Trump presidential rally on March 19th.  If not, here's a link to the story.

So anyway, the guy who did the sucker-punching is a guy named Tony Pettway, who happens to be a fourteen-year Staff Sergeant (E-5) in the Air Force, and a Security Forces Specialist (3P AF Specialty Code) stationed at Davis Monthan AFB in Arizona.  Air Force personnel refer to people in the 3P field as cops.

My opinion of the whole Pettway thing is summed up in one word:  Disgust. Tony Pettway has dishonored his service, the military, and the country by his inexcusable actions.  My hope is that he's hung out to dry by the Air Force.  With fourteen years of service under his belt, he's subject to what the military calls High Year Tenure when he reaches his fifteenth year.  HYT is intended to cull the ranks of the military by removing people (underachievers) from service who aren't making rank within specified time frames.  For an E-5, the limit is 15 years.  Pettway may get bounced soon anyway by HYT, but I'd sure like to see him get hosed through the military justice system.

To Pettway I say:  Your are a pathetic excuse for a non commissioned officer and a human being.

Ted Cruz

Today Ted Cruz said, after having to fire someone for posting a lie about Marco Rubio:  “I have made clear in this campaign that we will conduct this campaign with the very highest standards of integrity.”

Oh fuck that's hilarious!

Danger Will Robinson

Ted Cruz is more dangerous to our country than any person or thing anywhere.  The divisiveness.  The lies.  The religious fervor, not unlike radical Muslims.  It’s all pretty scary. 

What’s even scarier is that the mainstream media (all of it) treats Cruz like he’s not extreme; like he’s just a regular presidential candidate, when he is – in fact – a scary motherfucker.

Want a Christian-only oligarchy?  Vote for Cruz.

Some of his craziness:

“It is now or never. I don’t think we’ve reached the point of no return yet. But we’re close. We are close! And I believe if we go four or eight more years on this same path, we risk losing the greatest country in the history of the world. Millions of Americans are realizing this isn’t working. The Obama economy is a disaster. Obamacare is a train wreck. And the Obama-Clinton foreign policy of leading from behind — the whole world is on fire.”

“No man who doesn’t begin every day on his knees is fit to stand in the Oval Office.”
On atheists, who he thinks are unqualified to be president.

 “Let me say something to the school-aged kids here. When Heidi’s first lady, French fries are coming back to the cafeteria… The last I checked the cardboard was supposed to be on the tray and not in the food!”

“I’ll tell you, you know who one of those millions of Americans is who’s lost their health care because of Obamacare? That would be me. I don’t have health care right now.”
Lie

“JFK campaigned on tax cuts, limiting government and standing up and defeating Soviet communists. JFK would be a Republican today. He stood for religious liberty, and he would be tarred and feathered by the modern Democratic Party.”

“We will carpet-bomb them into oblivion. I don’t know if sand can glow in the dark, but we’re going to find out!”

“I want to tell everyone to get ready, strap on the full armor of God, get ready for the attacks that are coming.”

“The simple and undeniable fact is the overwhelming majority of violent criminals are Democrats.”

“Climate change is not science, it’s religion.”

 “Nothing is more important in the next 18 months than that the body of Christ rise up and that Christians stand up, that pastors stand up and lead. In this last election, 54 million evangelical Christians stayed home … If we can simply bring Christians to the polls — is it any wonder we have the government we have, we have the leaders we have if believers stay home and leave electing our leaders to unbelievers. We get exactly what we deserve and nothing is more important than having people of faith stand up and just vote our values, vote biblical values and that’s how we turn the country around.”

“We need a hundred more like Jesse Helms in the U.S. Senate.”
Right. Racists. Idiot
