WTF was George thinking?

It seems the or first Commander in Chief was a social**st being he signed a mandate requiring health care coverage to be paid for by the ship owner for their sailors.

http://andrewsullivan.thedailybeast....-mandates.html

Now why didn't the Solicitor General make this known a couple of weeks ago?

I'm surprised in the "Right" not picking up on the mandate "that required all able-bodied men to buy firearms" enacted in 1792. The NRA and ALEC it seems would be all over this one..

Maintaining America's sea power was paramount...back then regular merchant ships provided a bulwark as well as the US Navy. No one ever has ever complained about so************************m when it has been applied to national defense in this nation, and this occurred before Karl Marx so no one knew what communism was since it did not exist as a philosophy
yet. Not saying GW was a pinko, although maybe Congressman Alan West may have evidience to the contrary.

Whenever they asked Jesse Jackson about defense, he said he was going to paint it the some color as dehouse.

A strong healthy populist is in this nation best interest. Better to defend oneself with a well cared for citizens you would think. Well common sense would seem to point to this anyway.

Unless all you really need or want cannon fodder.

The lefties are apparently not above reporting half truths as truths:
