Obama The Dictator

Apparently, that’s how he sees himself.

In an interview with KOAA-TV, a local news channel from Colorado Springs, Colorado, President Obama says if Congress is not willing to pass legislation he wants, he will do it himself in order to win another term. […]

Rob Quirk, KOAA-TV: “And one year from today we will know if this a one-term or two-term president. So, I asked the president what will it take from now until then to not only win Colorado again, but reelection as well.”

President Obama: “Well, what we’re going to have to do is continue to make progress on the economy over the next several months. And where Congress is not willing to act, we’re going to go ahead and do it ourselves. But it would be nice if we could get a little bit of help from Capitol Hill.”

You know, when President George W. Bush wanted things done in Washington, he worked with both sides of the aisle to craft legislation that would receive bipartisan support. Even legislation that would later become controversial were passed with bipartisan support. Obama, however, sits on the sidelines, not willing to compromise on his socialist ideals, unable to unite his party with Republicans. He chooses to be a divider, and act like he has the power to do whatever he wants if Congress doesn’t do what he likes.

    Not only is he confident enough to act like a “dictator” and boast about doing so, but he is confident enough to submit his name to the ballots of American citizens even though he has lied about his credentials to represent them as president and hidden the papers from legal examination that would prove that he is a fraud. Where is someone with enough courage and persistence to confront this arrogant crooked “dictator?

    • Sunny December 15, 2011 / 12:27 pm

      Bob, when did Obama boast about being a dictator? Guess I missed the press conference. Real facts, not just wishful thinking – or stop writing such garbage.

      • Bob December 15, 2011 / 12:49 pm

        His comment that “where Congress is not willing to act, we’re going to go ahead and do it ourselves”.to the KOAA commentator sounds like such a boast to me.

      • Eagle Eye December 15, 2011 / 1:15 pm

        And where Congress is not willing to act, we’re going to go ahead and do it ourselves.

        “Ourselves?” Not the legislative body, so who? The courts? But they can’t legislate, at least not if they follow the constitution. It looks like that puts all the power in the White House.

        And does Obama really have to “brag” about being a “dictator”? Does he have to use that word? Who gets to decide whether a comment is “bragging” ?

        It looks like Sunny is the one who has been in the garbage.

        But Sunny, have you already forgotten barkys statement at the state dinner for chicom pres Hu. He wants that kind of power. He is on record saying it. I would suggest you look it up.

      • Sunny December 15, 2011 / 6:20 pm

        Pretty weak response Bob. Not sure what that made Bush with his remark about being the King. And what did Obama do that was crooked? Lets see what kind of nonsense you can make up about that. When Bush pranced around in his cowboy boots you thought that was pretty neat. The man who was deathly afraid of horses! And yet, you call Obama arrogant. Because he has a sense of self assurance that makes him arrogant? Heaven knows what you think of Newt Gingrich if you think Obama is arrogant.

      • Eagle Eye December 16, 2011 / 10:04 pm

        I never saw Bush “prance” anywhere and know for a fact that there is no test for footwear. I’ll bet you wear women’s shoes. You sure find weird stuff to obsess about don’t you? What is your source for the damning claim that Bush is deathly afraid of horses? Those voices in your head again?

        Bob’s response was weak? He quoted Obama. Directly. Word for word. Good to see you finally admit that what your hero says is weak.

        ” Nobody can deny that Obama has been a complete failure to America. and his wife MOOCHIE thinks she has a unlimited vacation spending budget on the tax payers dime ———-
        The First Lady has taken 42 days of vacation in the past year, including a $375,000 vacation in Spain and a four-day ski trip to Vail, Colorado, where she spent $2,000 a night on a suite at the Sebastian hotel. The first family’s nine-day stay in Martha’s Vineyard
        was also costly, with rental of the Blue Heron Farm property alone costing an estimated $50,000 a week. ‘Michelle also enjoys drinking expensive booze during her trips. She favours martinis with top-shelf vodka and has a taste for rich sparking wines. ‘The vacations are totally Michelle’s idea. She’s like a vacation junkie. She can’t schedule enough vacation getaways, and she lives from one to the next – all the while sticking it to hardworking Americans. Michelle Obama’s family trip to South Africa and Botswana in June cost taxpayers well over $424,000, according to new accounting based on Air Force manifests obtained by Judicial Watch, a taxpayer watchdog group. The use of Air Force aircraft alone for the June 21-27 trip cost $424,142, and that doesn’t include the food, lodging, and ground transportation for the 21 family and staff members which included her daughters listed as “Senior Staff” so the tax payers would pick up the tab for them in addition Michelle also listed her Hair Dresser and Make-up Artist as “Staff Memnbers” so the taxpayers would have to pay for there trip and all expenses — you gotta love it MOOCHIE never quits spending our tax dollars — no wonder she was Booed at the NASCAR event — Michelle acts like she is Marie Antoinett “Let them not eat cake while I drink Sparkling wine and eat Lobster”

        Last year the Obama’s Christmas trip to Hawaii cost more than $1 million. He covered the cost of his family’s accommodation, but the rest was covered by the taxpayers. The bill to house Secret Service agents and Navy Seals in beach front accommodation stretched to $16,800. A further hotel bill of $134,400 covered 24 White House staff staying in the Moana Hotel at a rate of $400 a day. The estimate, by the Hawaii Reporter, also included $250,000 for local police overtime, $1 million for the president’s own round trip flight to Hawaii on Air Force One, and $10,000 for a local ambulance to accompany the presidential motorcade, and once again Moochies Hair Dresser and Make-up Artist were counted as her “White House Staff Members””

    The White House is signing off on a controversial new law that would authorize the U.S. military to arrest and indefinitely detain alleged al Qaeda members or other terrorist operatives captured on American soil.

    • RetiredSpook December 15, 2011 / 12:49 pm

      Cluster,

      This was posted at Oath Keepers last week, with a link to the full PDF of the bill. It’s pretty explicit that it doesn’t apply to U.S. citizens. The applicable sections are 1031 and 1032. Let me know if you read it differently than I do.

      Click to access Senate-Bill-1867.pdf

      That said, there are elements of the detainee portion of the bill that are troubling, no doubt.

      • Cluster December 15, 2011 / 1:00 pm

        I don’t have any doubt that there may be some troubling language in a policy that is designed to address this unconventional war, but I do side with our military and trust their judgement in the “gray areas”. My point of the post was to expose liberals for their blatant hypocrisy. Had this been the Bush administration, the liberals would have been screaming from the mountain tops, and MSNBC would have devoted the entire week to how these policies will only serve to create more terrorists.

    • Eagle Eye December 15, 2011 / 5:26 pm

  6. js03 December 15, 2011 / 10:34 am

    Donkeys are running around whinnying while Elephants are stampeding, and all the while an ineligible President sits in our White House and we aren’t supposed to notice. ‘Politically expedient,’ ‘bigger fish to fry,’ birthers are annoying,’ ‘Obama showed his birth certificate, that is good enough for me.’

    What about forgery, lies, cover-ups and Constitutional crisis do they not understand? Maybe they are the ones with the brain injuries. They sure act like it. One thing I know for sure, my injured eye can get better with treatment, but Obama, his lies and secrets cannot.

    It’s just a…

    It’s just a ‘marriage certificate’, but our lives and hearts have changed with the times. “No hard feelings, but I just don’t feel the same way anymore.” “What is the big deal if for variety’s sake I have a fling once in awhile? I still love you for you.”

    A big concrete foundation is just too costly and in the way. Your home doesn’t really need one to stand up straight and weather stress and age.

    It’s just a business contract between friends: 50/50. ‘You get the sled up the hill. I get the sled down the hill. We will split all the back end profits but I will keep the books and records.”

    It’s just our Constitution. It is old and really a historical fossil, not the lifeblood and unique power of our country. We have to flow with the times and with whatever ‘the people’ want. Why do we always have to go back to that ancient document? Natural born this, natural born that, does it really matter where Obama was born?

    The Holy Bible isn’t really the word of God and the bedrock of our foundation and founding fathers. It is just one of many religious books around the world and no better.

    The truth will prevail
    The truth is, that if you don’t take your marriage vows seriously, whether you feel like it or not, and abuse your spouse or sleep around, you will lose your marriage.

    The truth is, if you try and build a big house without a proper foundation, walls will tilt, sink and crack. Your home will be slowly destroyed over time.

    The truth is, if you aren’t a person of your word with business contracts and steal from people, you will eventually lose your business, reputation, company, friendships and freedom.

    Our Constitution is our rock, skeletal core and reflector of American rights, power, way of operating Government, freedoms and unique spirit. To minimize, manipulate and ignore what it says is to literally attack the heart of America, freedom and her unique truth. It can never be viewed as ‘dynamic’ but constant, treasured and respected at all times by those in leadership!

    Finally, The Holy Bible is the inspiring backbone and spiritual power that has launched our country to the number one super power on earth and light on a hill for countless. We have a history of seeking God of the Holy Bible and defining worth for each person from there. The minute we walk away from our Christian roots, we walk away from our power and light as a people.

    Does it matter if Barack Obama is not a natural born Citizen, born in this country, used other social security numbers, paid millions to hide his records while lying about his life to America???? You answer that.

      1) Statement from the President, often reafferming existing law, sometimes making a general statement about an issue. In the case of a statement that the Administration will not participate in a law;

      2) Article II, section 3

      Bonus question) Clinton issued the most Signing statements.

      • RetiredSpook December 15, 2011 / 12:18 pm

        I seldom disagree with you, Count, but the only part of Article II, section 3 I see that pertains to execution of the law is the portion I’ve bolded below.

        United States Constitution, Article II, Section 3

        He [the President] shall from time to time give to the Congress information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary occasions, convene both houses, or either of them, and in case of disagreement between them, with respect to the time of adjournment, he may adjourn them to such time as he shall think proper; he shall receive Ambassadors and other public Ministers, he shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed, and shall commission all officers of the United States.

        Is there judicial precedent that the presidential responsibility to faithfully execute the law also includes a waiver on the part of the Executive Branch to exempt itself from laws that it doesn’t like?

      • Count d'Haricots December 15, 2011 / 1:49 pm

        Spook,
        That is the exact wording that Monroe relied on when he first executed signing statements.

        In Article II § 3 it is understood that the President can confirm, respond, or raise objections via signing statements or what was simply known as a signed statement from the President, most often they’re used simply to say “well done” or state the President’s understanding that the law allows him to do” X” even though it isn’t specifically stated.

        I’m relying on my memory here but I think it was Monroe that sent a statement to Congress declaring that he had “cleared up” an ambiguity in a law by a statement that he intended to do as he understood his Constitutional authority. As many Presidents have done since.

        I’m not aware of judicial review since the idea of co-equal government is a major stumbling block to the idea that the Executive Branch having stated that the Legislative Branch doesn’t have the power to regulate the Executive and along comes the Judicial to claim they have authority over both. I think you can see the dilemma here. But, I’ll research it further when I have time.

  8. Sunny December 15, 2011 / 11:08 am

    What a major stretch to call President Obama’s statement that of a dictator. After what we went through with the Bush administration, all of the signing statements, the lies to get the US into a war of choice, not necessity, with Bush even stating it would be easier if he were a king, and you call this language that of a dictator? That is pathetic and weak. What a stretch of the imagination.
    So George Bush worked across the aisle, did he? Is that when he used the language “you are either with us or with the terrorists” if anyone disagreed with the Bush agenda? You were un-American if you did not support the Bush administration’s policies? That is working across the aisle? Bush was the greatest divider this country has had in modern history – along with his vice-president. We do not even know what went on in the meetings that Cheney had with the oil industry, but that does not seem to bother any of you, but the President saying he is going to continue to work to improve the economy to the extend he can with or without Congress makes him a dictator? What delusional world do you live in and how far can the Republicans stretch facts to make them meet their own wishful thinking and hoping they can get their followers to agree with them?
    You complain if the President is what you believe is not doing enough to improve the economy and then you turn around and bitch if you think he is doing too much in his position as president. Make up your feeble minds. And be honest – all you really want is for a Republican to be back in the White House and you really don’t care who that Republican is – you are even willing to elect a morally and ethically challenged person like Newt Gingrich if that is what it takes to win back the White House.

        Say what you want Cluster, but many Americans believe that the country was fed lies and exaggeration by Bush, but more so by Cheney, to move the US into a war with Iraq. What a terrible waste of human life and treasure. You can tell yourself that you want to believe, but if you really were over with the UN weapons inspectors you know full well no WMDs were ever found and the US inspectors had free reign to go where ever they wanted to go to do the inspections. Frankly, I believe Bush was talked into the whole deal by Cheney (Mr. 5 deferments) and Bush thought Hussein tried to kill his father. President Clinton is occasionally wrong – this happened to be one of those times. And I still believe we were lied to by the President, V.P. and Secretary of State, Condi Rice.

        Sunny, are you saying you do not believe that a married man who was a father and a full-time college student should have received any deferments?

        Should anyone be eligible for a deferment? Why? Why? If a married father/student does take the deferments offered by the government for people in any of these three classes, much less in all of them, does that mean this person should not be eligible to run for public office?

        How did you feel about Clinton’s deferments? Do you think the fact he went to the USSR and attacked his own country there should have made him ineligible for public office?

        How did you feel about Al Gore stating in his book that he was going to go to Canada to DODGE the draft, but his father was afraid this would hurt his (the father’s) reelection chances so he joined up with the promise that he would be protected and not in any danger? Remember, he served his time as a photographer who did not take pictures, smoking dope and being babysat by real soldiers.

If he had children, that would have been different, but that was not the case. Don’t just assume he was honorable – he wasn’t. He was a coward. He said he more important things to do than go into the service. Tell that to the thousands of families who lost a loved on in the Vietnam War. He was a coward. Yet he had no problem sending others families sons and daughters into two wars – and made a huge profit from those wars. Go ahead and defend the indefensible.

What other “wild-eyed Bush-nightmare” have I dreamed up? I truly believe that the Bush administration, with the urging of the neo-conservatives put together a scenario that they could sell to the US to justify an attack on Iraq. They did their best to try to convince US citizens that Iraq was involved with the 9/11 attacks – when they knew very well that was not true. You are a fool if you do not understand that Cheney wanted to take control of Iraq for an center for the US to control middle east and the oil. Didn’t Cheney make the statement that the American soldiers would be met with flowers and candy and that Iraq had so much oil it would pay for the war? You do understand how rich Cheney became because of the Iraqi War??

      • Eagle Eye December 15, 2011 / 5:18 pm

        Except no one in the Bush administration ever DID “their best to try to convince US citizens that Iraq was involved with the 9/11 attacks”.

        How rich did Cheney get from the Iraq war? How did that happen?

        More stupidity from Sunny as she spreads more conspiracy lies; “. Didn’t Cheney make the statement that the American soldiers would be met with flowers and candy and that Iraq had so much oil it would pay for the war? She’s the same pinhead that thinks Sarah Palin said “I can see Russia from my house.”

        No dipwad he didn’t, what he said was, “I think things have gotten so bad inside Iraq, from the standpoint of the Iraqi people, my belief is we will, in fact, be greeted as liberators.” He expressed an opinion and he was correct. Cheney did not claim Iraqi oil will pay for the war.

    • Eagle Eye December 15, 2011 / 1:23 pm

      Sunny, what role do you think the government should play in building the economy? Controlling private enterprise and expanding government size and power, or creating an economic environment in which private enterprise can grow and then keep what it earns?

      Why can’t you post based on how you think the government should be run instead of on who you hate and who you love?

      • Sunny December 15, 2011 / 4:27 pm

        eagle eye – put a stick in it.

      • Cap'n Obvious December 15, 2011 / 5:02 pm

        silly Eagle Eye, Velma isn’t able express an opinion on how the government should be run; because … it’s Bush’s fault.

      • Eagle Eye December 15, 2011 / 5:20 pm

        Cap’n, is Sunny really as vicious and stupid as she comes across? It is funny that the only answer she has to how to run the government is to invite me to share her kinky fetish. But do we really have to be told details of her sex life? I for one would rather not know.

      • Cap'n Obvious December 15, 2011 / 7:36 pm

        I feel bad for the stick.

      • Green Mountain Boy December 15, 2011 / 8:02 pm

        Sunny, do you need a fact checker? It really looks like you do. I will volunteer to be your fact checker for you. Up until next planting seson that is. I think you could really benifit from someone checking your facts before you post.

        Let me know, I’ll ask the moderator to send you my email. 🙂

      • tiredoflibbs December 15, 2011 / 8:37 pm

        Sunny need a fact checker? No matter how many FACTS are used to debunk her dumbed down talking points, she will again return and mindlessly regurgitate the same nonsense as before.

        That is her modus operandi.

      • Green Mountain Boy December 15, 2011 / 8:43 pm

        Tired, I did but offer, she has not accepted yet. I for am a bit disappoited that her statements rarely if ever survive the first rebuttal. 🙂

      • Green Mountain Boy December 15, 2011 / 10:39 pm

        By the Sunny, this is a serious offer. Have I ever attacked you personally? Ever called you other than the screen name you are using?

        For my part I count you among the LOYAL opposition.

    • Amazona December 17, 2011 / 12:00 pm

      Poor old Velma is still on her anti-Bush kick, isn’t she? Too bad she doesn’t have a life, at least a life so dominated by negativity and hatred.

      So Bush joked that it would be easier if he were the king. Oooooohhhhhh. How OMINOUS .

      I suppose if he were to joke, regarding the hours in-flight on long state trips to places like Japan, that it would “..be easier if I could just teleport..” that would mean he thought science fiction was fact.

      Maybe after losing a pickup basketball game he could say “It would be easier if I were taller” and then Velma could spew nonsense about his plans to have extensions implanted in his leg bones.

      The only thing Velma could possibly say that would have any relevance at all, regarding every one of her utterly stupid posts, would be for her to say “It would be easier if I were smarter”. And we would all know that this would be impossible, just an observation of her limitations, and none of US would become upset by it.

      Perhaps Velma could consider the ramifications of her hero and crush, Barry, never acknowledging that he is NOT a king.

    • Amazona December 19, 2011 / 10:54 am

      “Bush was the greatest divider this country has had in modern history …”

      Well, he DID manage to divide Velma from her little remaining sanity so maybe this is what she is squealing about.

      ” We do not even know what went on in the meetings that Cheney had with the oil industry. ”

      Nope. And we don’t know what went on in the many many MANY meetings that Obama has had with “Workers Of The World Unite” SEIU thug leader Andy Stern in his trips to the White House. And we don’t know what went on in the meetings between Obama staff and lobbyists in venues away from the White House so there would be no White House log of such meetings.

      And so on.

    I think Michelle thinks that she is something special too. I think this is the second or third time that she has decided to not wait for hubby and spend needless tax dollars on flying her away to her “much needed” vacation.

    President Obama to stay in D.C. while Michelle Obama, daughters head to Hawaii

      How big is her entourage this time?

      • Cluster December 15, 2011 / 1:32 pm

        Funny you should mention that:

        First lady Michelle Obama’s separate voyage to Hawaii promises to cost taxpayers tens of thousand in extra dollars, as her separate entourage and hefty flying costs pile on the costs.

        The flight alone is priced at more than $60,000, according to government estimates. But that’s only the beginning. The additional cargo flight that often accompanies the first lady on such a trip must also be paid for, as well as the limos and other accoutrements it will contain.

      Come on Cluster give Michelle a break she did after all break the jumpin’ jacks record.

      Don’t you know she deserves everything she wants? Let a Republican First Lady replace crappy china (after raising money to pay for it) for state dinners and receive the full wrath of the left!!!

      We are just not being fair to the victim, Michelle.

      • Amazona December 19, 2011 / 11:01 am

        Nancy Reagan was working for the country, getting private donations to pay for upgrading the impression the President, and by extension the country, makes at state dinners.

        Naturally an effort to elevate the United States in any way is going to be offensive to the Left.

        But Mooch elevating HERSELF and in so doing acting in the best tradition of Leftist Ruling Elites—now, THAT is something the Left understands and approves.

    • dbschmidt December 15, 2011 / 10:17 pm

      Maybe Eric Holder forgot to read this memo to First Lady Michelle Obama along with all the other memos he missed on F&F. You know, this executive order (by her husband) ordering restrictions on unnecessary travel. So either her leaving early is once again “necessary”, or it is once more a “do as I say~not as I do” WH.” Either way, it is apparent who wears the pants in that house.

    U.S. lowers flag, marking official end to Iraq war= bad news for Newt

    http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/285787/winnowing-field-editors
    =bad news for Newt

    RASMUSSEN IOWA: Romney 23, Gingrich 20, Paul 18…
    NH POLL: ROMNEY 35, PAUL 21, GINGRICH 16…
    =bad news for Newt

    Not a single vote has been cast, but the verdict is in from one demographic watching the presidential election closely: America’s political cartoonists are rooting for Newt Gingrich to become president.

    With 3 weeks to go, the GOP elite has decided they would like a Romney vs. Obama match up.

    • Green Mountain Boy December 15, 2011 / 2:46 pm

      Bardolf, it took you this long to figure that out? It wasn,t clear a year ago that the repub establishment wanted Romney Mitt? I do believe they are being hard on Newton on purpose though. I am sure he is just as acceptable to them as Romney is.

      Newt just won’t grow the size and scope of government as much as Romney would.

      • bardolf December 15, 2011 / 3:04 pm

        Newt’s loot: Billionaire commits $20M
        http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1211/70501.html

        I thought the GOP elite would like a dog and pony show where they would let the two ponies Mitt and Newt fight it out to see who served their interests better.

        The big guns (National Review, Drudge, …) seems to be worried that the dog and pony show has left some space for crazy Ron Paul in Iowa. Time to end the show.

      • Green Mountain Boy December 15, 2011 / 3:21 pm

        Don’t get your hopes up. I’ll bet another six pack Paul will not be the nominee. I am still of the mind that niether Newton or Romney will win in Iowa. Paul might but I doubt it.

        Less than 3 weeks for the fun to begin.

      • bardolf December 15, 2011 / 3:40 pm

        LOL

        Why would I believe that Paul is going to be the nominee? In fact I think everyone in the GOP elite is working against him first.

        I think it’ll be Newt in Iowa, Romney in NH and then Romney all the way until he gets beat by Obama in 2012. That seems to maximize the illusion that the people are choosing while not threatening the status quo.

      • Green Mountain Boy December 15, 2011 / 4:05 pm

        Two things Bardolf. The voters have to go along with the establishment plan. Perhaps they won’t. Still of the mind that the Clintons have some payback planned for barky. They are saying and doing all the right things right now. They are vengeful spiteful people who don’t like being played.

        Hillary was played in 08.

        Lets wait and see shall we. 🙂

      • bardolf December 15, 2011 / 4:19 pm

        Newt vs. Hillary

        I’d pay to see that cage match!!!!!!!!! 🙂

      • Green Mountain Boy December 15, 2011 / 4:32 pm

        Newt vs Hillery? LOL I don’t think that will happen. The donkyrat establishment is as much against her as the repub establishment is for the rino wing of the party.

        I’m thinking more of a spread of torpedoes hitting the SS Barky over a period of a couple of weeks. Right when the damage can do the most.

        Maybe the Clintons have irrefutable proof of something?

      • Green Mountain Boy December 15, 2011 / 5:20 pm

        Bardolf. Do you think Ron Paul is a racist?

      • dbschmidt December 15, 2011 / 10:20 pm

        GMB,

        I have a sneaking suspicion that the ChiTown machine behind President Obama has something big on the Clintons. I have never seen, nor expected the Clinton machine “bow out” so gracefully. Something crossed the table either over or under it.

      • Green Mountain Boy December 15, 2011 / 10:35 pm

        DB, there might be something to that effect going on. One of the many rumors out there is that barky has proof that Chelsea is Hillary and Web Hubbles kid. Not Bills.

        In my opinion though, I think Hillary and Bill would risk even landing in slammer to sink barkys ship. No evidence at all to support it. Just intuition.

        Who do you think have played the power politics game better. The Clinton team or the barkyteam?

      • dbschmidt December 16, 2011 / 12:21 am

        This round has to go to the ChiTown boys because it has their MO all over it–get all of your opponents to drop out before the actual election. The Clintons tend be be more subtle (if that can be said) with the behind the scenes tactics. Either that or people just kill themselves because they don’t want to wake up in the morning still in debt to the Clintons.

        I am still having an issue with “Cows jumping over the Moon” assertion because I always thought that is where green cheese comes from. Now I am going to have to rethink the entire green eggs and ham theory and the “Angry Birds” off-take of green ham and eggs. Complications abound.

    • js03 December 15, 2011 / 4:06 pm

    Count d’ Haricots:

    Cheney did not get any deferments after the birth of his children. He got his last on 19 January 1966 when he learned his wife was pregnant with their first child. He received the previous four consecutively for educational purposes. And for the record the Vietnam War ended on 30 April 1975 not in 1973.
