Hey Ian, do us all a maple-syrup solid and vent your anti-American sentiments on some Canadian curling forum.

I didn't start this thread so that those Honorable men could be shown pathetic example of disrespect... from someone who doesn't know, nor could comprehend what they did to achieve such Honor. I find your post distasteful, and immature.

I don't think we are idiots. I think its more a case of greed and avarice. Granted, we could definetly be more astute and stand by our convictions more.

I liked the way Winston Chruchill put it, "The Americans will do the right thing; but only after they have exhausted every other option". On another note, its nice to see service men and women finally being treated with some respect, cuz when I was in the service, 67-71 we were spit on and treated like 2nd class citizens. After I got discharged and went back home I was either a baby killer or had lost the war and employers seemed to view my service time as a liability.

Wow, noticed from your profile you are a student; obviously it is not history. Please post again when you have knowledge of not only the US role in history but your own country. Better yet; why don't you think about serving your country or do you need to grow a pair?

Sorry about the late reply----That is the great irony, I was in the Coast Guard. Anyway, it was a long time a go, so it isn't as emotionally painful now.

A little off of the subject, but I was caught in a quandry. Vietnam was wrong, but I felt I owed my country something. What I've come away with is, 1) regardless of a persons polictical views, if they were in or are in the service I treat them as a equal and with respect, which is more than I can say for most, 2) there should be compulsory service time for young males. There are about 3 others, but they are negitive and really won't serve much purpose if posted. Welcome home, and know you did a good job. As one of my friends said, "there may have been cowards in Vietnam, but I sure didn't see any".

Wow. I can't believe you wrote that. I'm glad all Canadians don't share your ignorant attitude. I'll bet you're under 25 and have no real clue as to how this planet operates. Keep in mind one thing. You may personally think we're idiots, but our freaking Salvation Army could kick your ass.

What does age have to do with this?

I'll bet you're over 25 and look down on those younger than you and think yourself more intelligent than them.

Having a big army (just like using big font size) does not give immunity to idiocy.

For the record, I don't "look down on those younger than me". So, you lost that bet. But thanks for your conclusion jumping. The fool decides to bash my country on a freaking golf forum. Remember the " Americans are idiots " line? He's your typical Internet tough guy. Balls of steel online but betcha he folds like a cheap lawn chair when confronted. I'm glad the Salvation Army line wasn't wasted on you! You're too quick for me! (ya know, if I have to start explaining every joke I pen...) jeesh.

Brother, VN was handled wrongly, but fighting alongside someone who's fighting for their freedom is never wrong... people helped us in the 1770s... I admire and agree with #s 1 & 2.. and thanks for having the wisdom to go any further!!! your friend was right, all things considered. after working @ a VA hospital for over 23 years, I've never had the honor to meet one of these heros that were awarded the CMH. that tells how truely rare they were to obtain, and the fact that most were given post-humanously. Thank you for YOUR service, and receive a salute from me.....

    • Day 5: Started off with pitches, using a 7-iron, until I was finding center face and ball was starting on target. Then moved on to 3/4 swings with 7-iron, and finally a few full swings working on downswing priority piece. Then did some COVID-19 day 7 drill with 54* wedge. Finished by attempting to pitch 3 balls. Took 3 tries to successfully hit all 3, but one went over the net and backyard fence into the community pool next door (no one was swimming at least). 
    • Not going to lie, I'm terrible at keeping up with mobility exercises. Stretching after training is also important.
    • Yes, they cause the worse roadblocks and they slow things down the worst.  Why?  Because they are accepted as “smart” or “accomplished” and pontificate like they know everyone while you second guess yourself to make sure you are saying things that are accurate.   Hands down, these are the kind of people who lead to high turnover in companies.  They revel in their own enlightened opinions and it takes too long for them to drive their ignorance off a cliff sometimes.
    • What I’ve read is that cnn requires vaccination if you come into the office and they weren’t, so I guess this is the right thing to do.  We are faced with a very difficult situation and we need everyone to pitch in.  Flying on an airplane, going to a crowded nightclub or concert or many of the things we do is not a right, it’s a privilege based on a private company offering up something.  They have the right to request saftey for their employees and other customers.    Vaccine has been given to millions of people without incident, just go if you haven’t already.
