The republicans cut vet benefits, Obama added money to the 2015 budget for vet benefits just to offset the cuts made by the GOP.
Rage where rage is due man.

As a non-American who constantly sees Americans giving Obama a hard time (whether he deserves it or not is not my business) let me just say that the rest of the world respects him much more than the last guy you had.

we give him a hard time because he's our president. it doesn't really matter to us whether or not you like him.

and clearly the op of this tweet has every right to be pissed off. the people who actually serve this country are being ****** in the ass and a gay athlete is being called a hero and being recognized by our president.

The most awesome part of this, Obama was against gay marriage up until all this became a big deal. It was part of us his campaign during '08, and he was one of the people that voted for the Defense of Marriage Act.

It's ******* scary that people like you get thumbs.

The DOMA was passed in 1996. What was President Obama doing in 1996?

He was in the Illinois State Senate, which means he wouldn't have been able to vote for DOMA even if he wanted to.

******* stupid people just makin' **** up left and right.

To be fair.. even though is cruel.
That gay football player has properly made a bigger impact on the world, than that buddy has even though he has sacrificed a lot more.

Really?People are thumbing and agreeing with this **** ?

Michael Sam is the first openly gay player in american football history.Giving support to vets is necessary but what the **** does it have to do with it?

There's no double standard here, those are two completely different occurrences.

Who gives a **** about gays? About 80% of them fit the stereotype of faggot, and just cuz a persons gay doesnt mean treat them like some sort of ******* messiah, they're a person with a mental handicap, not a god.

If you don't want to /SPREAD YOUR GENETIC LINE/ you're mentally handicapped as a reproductive organism. Adoption =/= Reproduction.

For the last point, I should have used better wording. I mean the ones that wear skimpy clothes, and force their sexuality on others. The ones that claim bigotry when somebody disagrees with having their children seeing two men making out in public. Before you get pissed on that last part, I don't believe straight people should do the same. There is a time and place for everything, but in public isn't it.

Thirdly, I suffer from Gender Dysphoria. As much as I would love to wear dresses, and generally act like a woman in public, I won't. Because a 6'2 man with a beard in a dress, acting like a woman would scare the **** out of some people. Before you demand people tolerate you, prepare to tolerate them.

I am in no ways a man of Christ, but I live my life following Mark 12:31.

Who gives a hell though/what do those two things even have in common with each other? If you wanna complain about benefits for vets being cut, just do that. That phone call by Obama likely took up an entire minute of his time, which most certainly would not have otherwise been spent devising, drafting and signing a law for more benefits for vets.

You can call every gay pro football player

You can't call every injured member of the armed forces, realistically.

Does he think the gay guy told the president to take away his benefits?

I'm still having trouble comprehending how anyone could have voted for this man again. Not that Obama is entirely to blame for everything, but he's not innocent.

According to Gallop:

1996: 96% of Blacks voted for Clinton, a white male.
2000: 95% of Blacks voted for Gore, a white male.
2004: 93% of Blacks voted for Kerry, surprising, a white male.
2008: 95% of Blacks voted for Obama.
2012: 90% of Blacks voted for Obama.

Maybe, just maybe, no one but racists vote based on skin color.
It's, like, all projection, man.

"I'm not voting for that ****** !"
"The only way that ****** won is if all the other ******* voted for him!"

(Totally forgetting that African Americans not only make up only 13% of the population of the united states, but also are historically Democratic, since 1988 have never the majority voted for a Republican)

Does anyone really think that if Romney or McCain were black, they would have won the election?

And if so, then why didn't Herman Cain win? He's blacker than Obama, or as the idiots call him "King Obongo".

It really is so hard to be ill-informed in this day and age. With all the information you have right at your fingertips, yet you're either to lazy or stupid to go find it.
It really is a shame to say the least. Waste of human life and of a brain that has the potential for critical thought.

coming from someone in the US military... they really do take care of you after you've served, the people complaining about lack of benefits typically are the people that are like "I SERVED IN THE MILITARY WHY AREN'T YOU KISSING MY FEET AND GIVING ME A 100K A YEAR JOB???"

My buddy was in the marines and he left after 6 (i think) years, he got shot in Afghanistan and he got a free house through Wounded Warrior. Literally a free house. They check on him periodically over the first 3 or so years to make sure he isn't wasting money on a bunch of **** he doesn't need and respecting the house and not getting drunk all day and doing drugs, then after those 3 years they transfer the house to his name. No mortgage paid by him at all.

Also he doesn't have to pay for his college classes and he's also getting paid to take them.

tl;dr America actually treats vets pretty damn good

I find more issue with the gross over-payment of professional athletes.
Especially considering that the people responsible for educating our population are payed an insultingly small sum.
