    Outcry about Paltrow

    Why must everyone cause an uproar every time someone uses "war" as a comparison? It's so annoying. War has been used as a simile forever. Are people really stupid enough to think the comments have the intention of downplaying the things the military goes through in a war zone? Get over it people!

    Ok...take her out of it. Are we no longer aloud to use the word "war" in a comparison because it someone takes away from the sacrifices the military members make in combat?

    Americans have a collective war boner - and as a direct result many consider service members some sort of elite, privileged class - I used to subscribe to several military facebook pages - but eventually I stopped because I got sick of all the silly outrage because some civilian said this or that.

    My fellow service members make me embarrassed sometimes. Especially the Marines - Marines don't mix well with social media, especially when it comes to Obama's birth certificate, or the FEMA camps.

    Give her a call. I heard she might be free on February 1, 2015, and could possibly be in the Glendale, AZ. area. Oh, she really likes popcorn.

    She said that, when it came to Twitter, it was like celebrities were going to war to defend themselves against the comments people made.

    For some reason many claimed that this was disrespectful to the military.

    Unfortunately we are yet another tool of over-sensitive demagogues. Alongside homosexuals, race, and gender. I would never advocate limiting free speech, but there are plenty of people who I wish would take a little time to take a deep breath and analyze things intellectually before they hit the "Enter" key. This would be one of those instances.
    "The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first." ~ Thomas Jefferson

    It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood.
    James Madison
