    This story may seem like a joke but it is true. A Marine Lance Corporal is being punished because he risked his life and limb fasting a child from a burning car when he was out of uniform.

    Marine who saved child from burning car without his cover to be punished

    “QUANTICO, Va. — Lance Cpl. Will Smithers will be removed from the Marine Corps early following his reckless behavior while in uniform, sources report.

    Smithers was driving home after a long guard shift when he spotted a vehicle on the side of the road. In those next moments, Smithers made careless decisions, forever damaging the brand of the Corps, and tarnishing what his superiors called an otherwise “okayish” career.”

    If he had been a racist like limbaugh trump would give him a dozen medals.

    Lol, Lance Cpl. Will Smithers. The prosecuting JAG, Marine Corps Capt. Monty Burns. (If you don't know, look up Homer)

    The best part, "If he had been a racist like limbaugh trump would give him a dozen medals." You can't make this stuff up, I'm dying here! This is great.

    How to spot a racist 101.
    That's such a ridiculous statement.

    To paraphrase one of our posters here, "Why is the LW so easy to troll?"

    Nah, more curious to see who takes the bait. Just like all the liberals believing shifty Schiff saying for 2 years “I have proof Trump colluded with Russia”.

    I'm glad you blamed the climate and not a particular poster or political party. It seems that everyone has been hypnotized into believing whatever supports their confirmation bias.
