Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill) and I have very little in common when it comes to politics, but her ass chewing of Mr. Braulio Castillo during a IRS Scandal hearing was epic. For those of you that don't know, Mr. Castillo, CEO of Strong Castle Inc., has received over $500 million worth of contracts with the IRS by claiming disabled veteran status. Why is this such a controversy? This piece of work, sprained his ankle while playing football in military prep school. He then went on to attend University of San Diego to play football, and 20 years later applied for disabled veterans status.
This fool didn't serve ONE DAMNED DAY on Active Duty, Reserve, or National Guard. His answer to the SBA stating, "These are crosses that I bear due to my service to our great country, and I would do it again to protect this great country," makes me want to pound the crap out of something, and makes my blood pressure rise to an unhealthy level!
Hey jerk, here's my message to you: You didn't sacrifice a damned thing. I sacrificed my body to the service of this great country. While serving in the Army in Korea in 1999, I found out that because of all of the physical demands put on my body, I lost the head of my left femur, had bone loss in my spine, and to this day still suffer from debilitating spasms through my back and neck. I have had my left hip replaced, and will have to have my right one replaced as well. I have permanent nerve damage in my spine, and will eventually have to have surgery on my back as well. Can you guess what my disability rating was when the Army medically discharged me? 20 percent. Ten for my back, and ten for my left hip. After having my hip replaced guess how much I receive now? 40 percent! That is it. You get 30 percent for doing nothing!
Tammy Duckworth sacrificed her body, even more than I, and you had the gall to sit before her like you have some sort of kinship with her. You are not even worthy enough to spit shine her combat boots! You should go and find a deep hole, climb in, and cover yourself up to your neck. After being exposed to the elements for several days with no water, you might have a slight understanding of the suffering that TRUE disabled vets feel. Or maybe begin to have the littlest of respect and understanding of the conditions that our uniformed men and women are suffering through right now to protect your sorry ass!!!
