I don't feel the need to be nice. The mother fucking traitor should have been hanged, because a firing squad is too good for him. Then he should have been buried in and unmarked grave. Then every member of every unit he had exposed to danger should have line up and pissed or shit on his grave, as their current needs provided. Then it should have been dug up and used to fertilize Obama's garden in his new home.

Enjoy the tomatoes....

I was just thinking an unmarked grave under a landfill with the rest of the garbage. But your way works.

Part of Obama's final outgoing FU to the country in general and the military in particular.
I will point out that as former POTUS, BHO's security detail will be much less in the future.

Just sayin'.............. ;)

I am going to go ahead and call it now. Obama just commuted Manning's sentence because he wants a piece of that; 'cause he is freaky that way.

Politically? Absolutely. This is his parting gift to the LGBTetc community, a friendly reminder that "I Am Your Friend (Remember, the Democrats Own You)." A nice little rainbow ribbon to tie up his legacy.

If Manning still went by Brad, this wouldn't have happened.

Y'all are missing the big play that went down. With Manning he throws a bone to the LGBTQWERTYU Crowd. That's just a tactical win for his movement, while distracting from the big play.

This was cover for the pardon of his Chicago homeboy Marxist Murder Terrorist, Oscar Lopez Rivera. Bill Ayers and another dream from his father fulfilled.
