NUGGETS FOR THE NOGGIN
I EARNED THE COAST GUARD MEDAL
By Jim “Gymbeaux” Brown, June 28, 2012
Just thought everyone would like to know that I earned the prestigious Coast Guard Medal. I spent 20 years in the U. S. Coast Guard serving our country and I am so proud. By the way did I not tell you that I also was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor? Yep, sure was. That ought to look good on my resume wouldn’t you say?
But of course it is a lie, I won neither one. Can I be punished for saying I did? Not according to the questionable judges on the U. S. Supreme Court. Today, June 28, 2012, a day of infamy to quote a famous president, our U. S. Supreme Court ruled 6 to 3 that anyone can claim they have earned a military award and there is nothing anyone can do about it under, are you ready for this, FREEDOM OF SPEECH!
Words simply fail me at a time like this and sometimes vulgarity just can’t be replaced with civility. At least 6 of the 9 judges have their heads so far up their asses they will never see the light of day. How many military people gave their lives so that these 6 people, I use the term with reservations, can say it is okay to lie about receiving awards reserved for only the select few who demonstrated courage under the worst of conditions; conditions I might at that these 6 probably have never see in their lifetime.
Freedom of Speech has just been lowered to authorize anyone to say whatever they want regardless of whether it is a lie or not; go figure. By the way, did I tell you I was elected to the Congress of the United States? Under their definition of Freedom of Speech, I did nothing wrong by stating so even though it is not true. I wonder if that means someone can say they are a police officer or an FBI agent because of course they have Freedom of Speech. According to these justices freedom of speech has just become a right to lie with immunity.
Is this a great country or what?
I was awarded several military honors during my 20 years. As of June 28, 2012 they are meaningless! Thank you very much! I paid my price to our country and I have a right to be pissed I can only hope people who read this are as well.
Oh by the way, did I tell you that I won the Super Bowl back in 1995? I did you know.
