    Perpetuating the stereotype that black people can't swim. Shame on you, you racist.

    I'm hoping you mean that as a joke. I never heard of such a Black stereotype. Anyone can find themselves in trouble in the water. And in life, too, regardless of skin color.

    Nice attempt of wiggling out of it Kolonel... Not buying it.

    The correct English spelling is Colonel. Anything else is a cheap insult to me, and to anyone else who wore a US military uniform. By someone who never wore any military uniform, and is therefore in no position to play these belittling & offensive games against women & men who honorably served this country.

    And I'm still not sure how DefensiveEnd meant his remark. It's presumptuous of you to jump on it like he was attacking me. Not without precedent from you, but still presumptuous.

    I don't understand white republicans. don't they care about their country? I mean, honestly. How can taking foodstamps from already starving people be good? God will punish this nation for the way it treats the poor, and you know what, we will deserve it.

    You insult yourself if you misrepresent your rank - Lieutenant Colonel, sometimes referred to as Light Colonel vs Colonel. And I did wear the uniform, but I never lie about it.

    Thank you for saying that. Some people seem to live to find things to be offended by - usually conservative christians, but....
