It makes people feel all warm and fuzzy inside, another law to punish something already wrong that likely won't be enforced or prosecuted.
Yup. Politicians, too, who've been swearing to protect and defend the Constitution since they've been taking that oath.Mankind has been lying since it learned speech. This will change nothing.
You mean the sleaze bag Richard Blumenthal from Connecticut that mentioned his combat experience in many of his campaign speeches and when caught, stated his comments were taken out of context.There was a politician elected to office not long ago even after he was caught lying about being a Vietnam Vet. Wonder if he voted in favor of this one. Getting elected to office has to represent a tangible gain. I'm not sure who he represents, but their standards must be really low!
Nope i think i will trash him whenever and wherever it pleases me to .....after all he is supposed to be working for me.If he hadn't signed it everybody on this post would have been calling him a commie and that he was dishonoring the veterans. Find something that really matters, like the economy. You can get him there.
FYI, the first stolen valor act that signed by President Bush and that was struck down was sponsored by Democrats. This is just a "fix" in response to the S. Ct. striking down the first version of the act. The bill really is apolitical, and I wouldn't read any ulterior motives into this.It boisters his false appreciation for our military.
That is the point. Under the old law which was deemed unconstitutional it could have been. Under the new law I doubt it unless some guy is trying to get free bee telling folks stories that aren not true.No, I haven't gone there, but is stretching a war yarn to get a free beer now a federal crime?
