Just when I think you can't be more stupid, rude and obnoxious, you prove me wrong. Why don't you publish under your real name? That's right, because you are a small minded, weak, cowardly little troll, who through the anonymity of the internet, gets to strike back at the big bad world that has done you so wrong your whole life. There is a saying that states if one person tells you something, it is their opinion. But, when you are told the same thing over and over again, by a variety of people, throughout your life, there is more than a kernel of truth in what is being said. So, you were picked on and made to feel small, stupid and worthless, which is obvious from the tone, content and intent of your posts. Guess what, they were right. Go ahead now, tell me I'm wrong, call me a mouth-breather or something else that in your mind is witty. Those you call fat, ugly Harley riders and their women, take time out of their lives to show respect and gratitude to our military, who voluntarily put their lives on the line for something they believe. The ones who started the Patriot Guard Riders wore our nation's uniform during a time when it was unpopular to do so. They suffered the pain and humilitation of returning to an ungrateful nation, and have sworn that our servicemen and women will never again be treated as they were. I've met many of them, and they may look big and tough, but they are some of the most honest, caring, giving people I've ever been privileged to know.

Further, it is because of ungrateful, ignorant people like you that they do what they do. No matter how evolved we are as a society, there will always be those like you who represent the downside of the bell curve. You are a troglodyte, and what amazes me more than anything else is that you have managed to learn how to type. Then again, even a chimpanzee given infinte time in front of a keyboard will occassionally come up with a semi-coherent sentence. I hesitate to use that analogy, because I do not wish to insult chimpanzees by comparing you, a decidedly lesser life form, to them. Refute the truth of my allegations by posting your real name. I'm sure none of us would be surprised to then find out in real life, just as here on the internet, you are several kinds of a degenerate scum bag, if not proven by the courts of law, then certainly by the court of public opinion, as would be testified to by everyone who has ever met you.

Jeez-all Gary said was "Welcome home Matt"
Iris December 15, 2011 at 06:56 PM
Finally, this is the one and only time I will address you directly, unless or until you post your real name and publicly identify yourself. Until then, you are dismissed.

son of a son of a cumbers commented on: Shorewood Welcomes Marine Home Congrats-for almost dying you get to be escorted home by a bunch of fat,ugly Harley riders and their equally repulsive wives/… 11:24 am If you're going to try to delete a post, maybe you should know that removing it from the article, does not remove it from the site. Further proof you are a troll with less intelligence than a lower primate.

I agree with Bob- I wouldn't want that kind of an escort-can you say you don't want them to do it? Iris- just because someone has a differing opinion is not cause for your overreaction

It sounds like you were dismissed from reality a long time ago
Joe December 15, 2011 at 08:24 PM
I'm with Iris on this one. Had it been a one time ignorant comment or difference of opinion, I think it would have been brushed off. The fact of the matter is, everything that comes from this cumbers guy is insulting, unintelligent, and usually has nothing to do with the article. Like I've said before, it's a lot easier to run your mouth hiding behind a keyboard than to man up and take responsibility for your words and actions. In other news, welcome home Matt. Job well done, you deserve a hero's welcome.
Iris December 15, 2011 at 08:34 PM
Sepp - this is done only by request and at the invitation of the family.
Rob December 16, 2011 at 09:44 PM
son of a son of a cumbers- I hope one day when you need help from someone, they go and say bend over so I can put my foot up your ass.
