During Vietnam, almost all able-bodied, young American man were DRAFTED, so it is irrelevant whether or not McCain was a military man serving his country before that war.

Either way, the man was incredibly brave for your nation and I respect him (even though I do not agree with a lot of his or Obama's politics) and he does not deserve to have people wishing death upon him in my opinion.

The fact that he never gave 1 name of his fellow armed forces men to the Vietnamese, no matter how horrendously they tortured him, speaks volumes for the man.

In my opinion, that is a noble ambition, and I am not sure how even the Obama lovers can disagree with it.

Boxers will never have retirement benefits just the same as a Rap or any music artist who is singed to record deal with a company, selling out concerts and making albums won't.

Both are independt. As a boxer, you sign with a promoter and have him promote your fights. As a musician, you sign with a record company and have them put out your music.

In both, once it's over it's over. You better be a damn good mainstream musician, making alot of money before you get old. In boxing, you better have a second job if you're not making some serious coin.

We've had fireman/fighters in the sport, cops/fighters, construction workers/fighters. In boxing, nothing is guaranteed....not even regular paychecks from fighting once every two weeks like in the old days when a fighter had to stay busy just to support his family.

You see this ultimate fighting filling in a bit of a vacuum there. I’m a proud conservative, I still think it is the sport that needs a union because these are the people with the shortest spans of participation. They need to have retirement benefits, and they need it as badly or worse than any professional sport.”
that sounds like a great thing... im an Obama supporter and this I stand by McCain 10000000000%
