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