Jim Hill's letter to Barbara Boxer

Aug 19, 2009 Full story: 11
Now is the time to start thinking about the 2010 polls And get these sorry souls out of office

Many of us witnessed the arrogance of Barbara Boxer as she admonished a brigadier general because he addressed her as "ma'am" and not "Senator" before a Senate hearing. This letter is from a National Guard aviator and Captain for Alaska Airlines. I wonder what he would have said if he were really angry. Long fly Alaska !!!!!

Way to go Jim....you are correct in that you speak for many Americans. It is truly a shame that you do not speak for more but illiteracy and stupidity run rampant in this beautiful country.

Jim sounds pretty upset, I'm sure he must be one of those "phony" soldiers Rush was speaking of.

It seems that every nimwit with a $12 email account can push these emails forward but the original authors of these pieces never have the courage to aFDIC their names to them. Mr. Hill is not the confirmed writer, why is he taking credit for this?

Origins:  In June 2009, Brigadier General Michael Walsh was testifying before the U.S. Senate's Environment and Public Works Committee, chaired by Senator Barbara Boxer of California. As General Walsh was answering questions about New Orleans' levee system, Senator Boxer interrupted him mid-sentence to request that he address her as "Senator" rather than "Ma'am":

This exchange touched off a partisan political brouhaha, with one side maintaining that it was perfectly acceptable for Senator Boxer to politely request that she be addressed as she preferred, and the other side maintaining that she was rude and disrespectful for interrupting the general in mid-sentence even though he had been showing her the proper deference by addressing her as "ma'am."

I saw the actual Exchange between Boxer and Walsh and Boxer was talking down to a person who actually help protect this country. She was being a typical elitist.She has no right without great men like Gen.Walsh protecting them.

Mr. Hill is the affirmed writer of the letter as verified by snopes.com . It's rather easy to look this info up.

I could not agree with you more. I still get hate emails about Bill and Hillary Clinton for God's sake!
All you pea brains out there - GET A LIFE! Most of the emails you are forwarding on to your whole address list are BS!
It seems as if the Republican and Democratic Parties or their pundits are both to blame.
In my eyes if it is funny send it. If it is not funny, have your facts line up and impeccable.
To me jim Hill was a hell of a lot more rude than Boxer ever thought to be.
That's my opinion.

"Babs"? "Hag"? "Shrew"? "Nag" "Harridan"? I don't remember who Jim Hill is but I now know he's a sexist bonehead. Show some respect, Jim. There is not a requirement to be familiar with "all things military" to have credibility in this country. In the military, "ma'am" is a sign of respect, but it isn't in the Senate. And respect is about knowing whom you're talking to.

Civilians run the military in the United States - always have and hopefully always will. Brigadier General Walsh knows that and you don't get to be a general by having thin skin. I'm sure General Walsh is man enough to take a scolding from a mere woman. But I I bet couldn't say the same for you. Let's see if you can take it: Jim, you're an ass.


If you're so enamored of the military, bully for you. Maybe you should re-enlist.



"Democrats want American troops killed..."? You can't possibly be serious? Tell me you're not serious. Please. I question your grasp of reality. If you really believe this, Jim, then you are in fact a "right-wing extremist" - if the shoe fits.....

Exactly who are the "unwashed, uneducated masses", Jim? Do we have a euphemism here for immigrants and minorities? I'm really interested. Who do you mean? I refer you again to the "right-wing extremist" comment.

California is not the laughing stock of the nation. What rat hole did you pull that out of? It has the biggest economy in the country, in spite of its broken electoral system. And it's being run by a REPUBLICAN governor. And exactly how does Janet Napolitano fit into this diatribe? Interesting that the only two people you pick on here are women. Scared of the big boys, Jim?

Jim, a little anger at the folks in Washington is absolutely justified these days. I'm sure you're frustrated that the Republicans continue to block any legitimate health care reform. But revealing yourself as a sexist extremist does nothing to take back Capitol Hill for the people. Next time you go on an anger bender, consider reading up on your subject first.
I think your vituperative reaction to Senator Boxer's comments are indicative of a deeper issue for you. Perhaps a little self-reflection might go a long way. Think about it.

Stephanie... Babs Boxer is an incompentant elitist, dbag of the worst kind. She has no respect for the men and women who serve and have served for this county and her lack of respect for a brigidere general shows how ignorant she actually is. Did you serve? No? Then shut your piehole when it comes to showing respect for military personnel.
