He should have gotten the death penalty, in effect he will get no penalty at all. He is an it now, they should just drop him in ISIS territory.

Well, it's not like the pencil-necked bath-house prick is doing anything surprising. Leaks work in mysterious ways, though. Maybe be some old buried secrets of the soon-to-be "ex" float up to the top of the swamp as it's drained.....

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.

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.

Oh, I saw that too. Someone else that should be under the landfill with Manning.

According to this article on Fox News, it hasn't been done yet, and the Army is at least trying to ensure we don't pay for it.

I think until he's actually made the cut he shouldn't be referred to as a "she". It's insulting to the vast majority of Cis-women who don't get the support, protection, and encouragement the trans women do.

And as for where he belongs, I was thinking unmarked in a landfill is too specific and localized. The South Atlantic or the South Indian Ocean in the roaring forties would do nicely, I think.
The use of the word "but" usually indicates that everything preceding it in a sentence is a lie.

I'll give him a "clap" if he made up the Trans thing in order to get away with it.

Are there any rules about being a convicted felon and serving in the Senate? Commutation isn't a pardon.
