Well, your right gurD...We've got quite a few folks who like to run around with their very limited military experience on their chest. My thought is it's those who seek the fame did the least....AKA Mikey, Gordon and few others. Your reply doesn't dispute my opinion that Mikey has just played the system so I assume that you too believe he's just doing this for the money. I don't really believe he's anti-Christian or any other religion. I believe he just saw an opportunity for a free law degree and later, a scheme to incite truly anti-religious folks into supporting a non-profit in which he makes a very comfortable living. Likely no different than a televangelist who tells folks to send money to him so he can save them, Mikey is just harvesting the other side.
One thing to remember about Mikey and his crusade against the Air Force Academy. He used the system to obtain a free law degree only. This is not a combat vet, not someone who served our country in it's defense. He simply became an Air Force lawyer using taxpayers money. Now, instead of using that degree to honorably serve the rule of law, he formed this non-profit group (from which he gets paid very well) to avoid having to do any real work defending clients or prosecuting cases which would require real effort on his part. We can certainly understand his reluctance to offer prayer... not many life threatening moments sitting behind a desk in Washington. But hey, it's even easier now, fill out some paperwork and threaten a lawsuit and settle... easy money. Can't say to blame him, that's the system and he takes advantage of it but don't be fooled that this is an honorable Air Force veteran, standing up for comrades in arms. This is a easy money making scheme picking low hanging fruit and riding the system like he's done over his entire career.
Great article Ralph, right up until you call someone a waterboy. No matter which side we're on, when we run out of smart things to say we start calling names..... and sound dumb again.
