Paulian poge or imposter?


Or patriot, maybe? There’s no way for me to know for sure.

I ran across a website diary authored by “captainj0e” while browsing over at Free Republic. Captainj0e is a Ron Paul guy who claims to be serving his second tour of duty in Iraq.

Frankly, I haven’t spent enough time around the Paulians to be able to recognize their rhetoric, but this guy uses rhetoric that is straight out of DailyPos:

I KNOW that most soldiers agree with ME … that we shouldn’t be in Iraq. Many soldiers are itching to go hunt down Bin Laden, but that’s not what the terrorists in the White House want. [emphasis mine]

And, here is an often-repeated claim:

Ron Paul has more campaign donations from Active Duty Military and Veterans than any other candidate.

Has anyone ever verified this claim? Or, is it like the Hillary Clinton claim of “35 years of experience” that is repeated so often that no one bothers to challenge it anymore, especially since any documentation that might support her claim is safely locked away.

Captainj0e writes a campaign letter supporting Ron Paul, and promises to mail it to 100 voters in every state before the primaries. He closes with this disclaimer,

“Of course I hand-write the addresses on the envelope, and each letter is personalized and has my real name (which I choose not to post here).”

It’s probably wise of captainnj0e to preserve his anonymity, considering that whole UCMJ thing. And, if he’s for real, he has certainly earned the right to express his opinion. But, I dunno, my BS meter is pegged out on this one.

  1. “my BS meter is pegged out on this one”

    Sounds like you might well qualify, from life experience, for an advanced degree in bovine scatology. *heh* Based on my lifetime of study of the subject (Yes, my first degree was a doctorate in bovine scatology–*LOL*), I tend to agree with your assessment.

  2. It seems we are doomed to repeat the ‘nut with the keys to the nuthouse’ candidate, every other decade or so.
    I don’t doubt there are service men and women that support Paul, as the military is a microcosm of our citizenry, but I would say their support doesn’t rise above the percentages found here in civilian life.
    You scream…I scream…we all scream…BS!

  3. I just spent Thanksgiving with a young soldier who would beg to differ, and he has re-enlisted and is going to flight school. Seems to me that nobody forced the ardent Paulian to join (if he is even a soldier), and he has the option of going home after his enlistment is finished.

  4. Hillary lying again? YUP

  6. Robert D, that is her best character feature.
    Don’t get me started on her worst.
    /her thighs are so big…..

  7. One funny bit of head-popping goodness.
    On New Years Eve day, there is a bowl game called the Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl, which will be played in Ft.Worth, Texas.
    One of the teams is the USAF Academy Fighting Falcons(zoomies), versus……..wait…for …it…………………………………..
    the University of California at Berkeley Golden Bears!!!
    Can you imagine the leftards fathoming the military industrial complex ramifications of Berkeley accepting this invitation, and the $750,000 payout from it?
    Spread the word for the Berkeley types, I want to see heads-a-poppin’ all over the Bay area.

  9. She said WHAT?

    “I don’t think the Pakistani government at this time under President Musharraf has any credibility at all,” Clinton said in an interview with CNN as she campaigned across Iowa. “Therefore I am calling for a full independent international investigation.”

    Who the hell does she think she is? This is a bit over the top even for her. Now she’s queen of the world, why bother with that presidency thing?
    Clinton calls for probe of Bhutto killing

  10. Hunh…so what ever happened to all those international investigations of Lebanese assassinations by the Syrians?
    Oh…right, it’s a sovereign nation.
    /hint

  11. I think what she really meant, Robert D, was a blue ribbon panel.

  12. Her ego is bigger than her thighs.

  13. Lets not go nutz, now!

  14. Yeah, I better get a grip. 😯 (i’ll be better in a few)

  15. Now, it’s possible, that her ambitions are larger than her thighs, but it might require laser surveying equipment to be certain.

  16. Mention a Republican candidate for president and I can find 6 things wrong with him before you draw your next breath. I am that good. The sneering adjectives pour off my tongue like acid rain, covering the candidate with an invective designed to illuminate how utterly preposterous the notion that they are worthy of consideration for high office.

    An Inveterate Grouser.
    /henh

  17. When is the so called conservatives going to stop bitching about their own and get with the task at hand? I’ve about had it with all my Old favorite sites.

  18. I know what you mean, Robert D.
    I’m about done with arguing with anyone over who should be the nominee anymore. I’m just going to let it play out, and wait for everybody to get on board with defeating the donks.

    How about some humor?
    This website and videos were funded by the Dutch government, which is actually amazing, to promote firework safety.
    Liberation Army Against Freedom.
    Those are Iraqi accents speaking Dutch.

  19. That’s better. Thanks 🙂

  20. how bout one more b-slap?

    Romney claimed on Meet the Press that he was endorsed by the NRA.

    The problem? He wasn’t

    Maybe it was one of those “figurative” thingies.

  21. Oh, that’s easy to explain, nuke.
    He really meant the NRA.
    Same-same.
    Just like Hildebeast being close friends with Bhutto, and named after a mountain climber.

  22. they do have a lot in common

  23. I’m just wondering who in the Hades The Queen of the Democrats thinks would be better running Pakistan. Bin Laden? The Taliban? Mr. 10%?

    If she gives any speeches comparing how much she has had to overcome, much like Ms. Bhutto, I’m going to hurl.

  24. Oops. Screwed that link up, too.

  25. ALIENS!!!!!!!!

  26. I haven’t received my NRA rating papers yet, or at least I haven’t read them yet, but just who is ranked highest?

  27. fixed that for ya

  28. Robert D, I don’t think they put out a rating until months before an election. I don’t recall one before the primaries, and can’t find one.
    Maybe they will endorse, but I don’t know for sure.

  29. Hey nuke.
    Found an interesting blog, Gun Control News.
    It’s posted by the Texas Rifle Association.

  30. It’s snowing again tonight here in Jefferson. The Christmas lights are on and it is beautiful on this 4th day of Christmas. Just enough of the light snow to make the ground white, but not hinder travel. Mrs. D will probably be home next weekend. Just thought I’d share that with you. Cause it’s only just begun

  31. If they don’t endorse, they will rate them.

  32. That’s what I just said, I don’t think they do a rating until a few months before the election….not the primaries.

  33. Thanks, Nuke.

  34. Dang, Mrs. D sure has been gone a long time.
    Hope she and her family have given each other plenty of comfort.
    As for the snow, try and keep it all to your ownself.

  35. for the prediction, or the link fixage?

  36. gun control news added to the roll

  37. Thanks.
    Thought that was a good find.

  38. TCU-Houston on?

  39. You know, we haven’t had a good gun thread in quite a while.
    Anybody get any new shootin’irons for Christmas this year?

  40. Yep, watching the Coogs as we speak.
    All tied up, and low scoring, which is surprising.

  41. what channel? can’t find it.

  42. Hunh…adios netscape browser.
    So that whole lawsuit against Microsoft was for nothing, their product was crap.

  43. I know the end-times are near, when a Brit paper publishes a story like this.

    Hey!
    Where’s vimto?

  44. Hunh…Judge Pickering doesn’t want the job.

  45. I posted this at Red Nation.

    RIP Virginia
    My Sister In Law will be buried Monday near St. Louis. Full military honors, USAF.
    She was 53 yrs. old. Way too young……..

  46. Nope. SwampMan wanted to get .22s for the grandkids but, considering the way the land around us is changing, I am afraid that I thought that was a bad idea.

  47. Heh. I’m going to be putting up videos at Red Nation tonight. Bwahahaha. Viva Bollywood!

  48. I’m gonna take a puter break.
    Check back in a little.

  49. the Korean girl can play that strat!

  50. later……

  52. Korean girl?
    TCU just went up by ten with about ten minutes left.
    For any that liked the Tremors series, Tremors IV is on SciFi.

  53. Yeah, she can! I was surprised.

  54. G’night, Robert D!

  55. I didn’t think Robert D was saying goodnight, but later to me, as I was taking a tv break.
    Although, I don’t think I can hang much longer, anyway.

  56. G’night, whoever is going to bed (and it will be me, too, shortly.)

  57. Friday Night’s OTA & OTB

    I hope everyone has a very nice weekend. Don’t drink and drive, please. I’m not there to kick your butt, but there are enough police officers out there to do it for me. Besides, it’s the right thing NOT to do. Let’s all start the next year with a ….

  60. We Went to Dachau Concentration Camp Today

    We got up about 4 a.m. yesterday and took the train to Munich. We arrived there about 9 a.m. and spent the day and evening walking from one end of the city to the other looking at the sights and taking in as much as we could in the time we had. Our t…
