Gary Stein, Teabaggy Camp Pendleton Marine Who Trashed Obama, Kicked Out of Corps

Categories: Politics
A Camp Pendleton Marine and Tea Party member who trashed President Barack Obama on Facebook remains in the service as he deals with a medical condition, but following treatment Sgt. Gary Stein will be involuntarily discharged, base officials announced. Oorah! A teabagger gets to suck down more taxpayer-funded assistance before being shown the gate. Stein's reportedly suffers from eosinophilic esophagitis, which requires a throat biopsy and an answers to, "What exactly got shoved down there and was Ted Nugent on the other end of it?"

Stein's "other-than-honorable" discharge comes for posting this March 1 on a Facebook page used by Marine meteorologists: "Screw Obama and I will not follow all orders from him."

Stein's attorneys argue such speech is protected by the First Amendment, but the military obviously disagrees. Besides kicking Stein out, his rank is being knocked down to lance corporal, confirms Brig. Gen. Daniel Yoo of the San Diego area Marine Corps Recruit Depot.

The biggest concern for Stein now is whether his throat condition will continue to be covered once he leaves the Corps, according to a Patch report.

"Financially it can be a little rough, obviously," Stein reportedly said. "Medically, it's going to be a little tough."

Grrrgl . . .

New petition to get Outdoor Channel to cancel Ted Nugent’s Spirit of the Wild. They’re being irresponsible by promoting illegal hunting by paying Ted Nugent to poach animals on national tv.

So, the Tea Bagger ex-marine who criticized Obama is worried now that he lost his government health care? Well, idiot, maybe if "Obamacare" stays in place you can get insurance without a pre-existing condition clause.


Here's Sgt. Gary Stein's main predicament; he became PROPERTY of the U.S. GOVERNMENT the moment he enlisted. At that moment, he surrended all personal rights (and his eternal soul, at least for the duration) and became a cog in a huge killing machine that can as easily promote your well-being as DESTROY IT UNMERCIFULLY & COMPLETELY.

Sgt. Gary Stein in this case gets Option B.

Meanwhile my premiums are skyrocketing to pay for all the free riders who wait until they are sick and then decide to get insurance with their 'pre-existing condition'.


Stein makes the whole marine corps look BAD.Rather repulsive intellectually.YUK ..


NationMAN maybe you can clarify something for me.

I am having trouble zeroing in on what it is exactly that you believe in. You seem to have a problem with everything.

If you ran the Military, what would a soldier look like? What could he say or do?

In fact, let's go for broke here............................

What would a Nation that you were in charge of look like?
