Compassionate Conservatism at its finest

Think Progress has the scoop on Dr Laura dissing the troops and their families.
she was tired of hearing the complaints of lonely and overwhelmed military wives
whose husbands are deployed. ‘He could come back without arms, legs or eyeballs, and you’re (whining)?‘ Schlessinger asked before taking the stage at the base theater to host her daily program on ethics, morals and values. ‘You’re not dodging bullets, so I don’t want to hear any whining — that’s my message to them.’”

How much you wanna bet Dr Laura has a big ol yellow ribbon on the back of that SUV of her's, her right wing badge of support.

Gotta love compassionate conservatism...

She's pissed that Dr. Phil stole a slice of her audience, only a couple years after Judge Judy had already scooped up most of it.

Now she's reduced to badgering war widows and reminding them of how f**ked up their spouses are going to be if they even do make it back alive.

Hers is a sort of eastern philosophy on PCP...

To make matters worse, she's back peddling now. In other words she'll make LaPlante a "liar" and try to destroy him. If you know her history, she's a serial liar. What she has is a ready made cult. Serious about her ethics and morals to the point of she's a god. She'll sic her numbers of crazed SAHM's on him.

Her routine is to "cry" and con a few more suckers. Good that she has raised money for charity by loaning her name. She never gave a darn about soldiers until Deryk Schlessinger joined the Army. She ignores the miltary families like the Tillman's, problems like lack of hospital care, Afghan drugs et al.

She did write in the Santa Barbara News-Press about military women and the draft, not her word. Read her columns or contact www.independent.com for more information and links. She is in the center of another controversy in Santa Barbara. Even worse, she and her paper are smearing a man's life in a kiddie porn scandel.

In "Feminism gets a shot in the headscarf" a News-Press column, April 1, 2007: "Ms. Turney, as well as the media which coddes the female with chid, have curdled repect for women in the military." That was after hoping for court martial for hostages.

She does want a draft, hates women in military and supports a perpetual war for the profiteers . She tries to play down her radical side and needs to be called out. I hope the military wives don't get conned. She needs to be watched and called out.
