Gary Stein, Marine Who Called Obama an “Enemy” on Facebook, Discharged

Gary Stein, the 27-year-old Marine who spewed anti-Obama rhetoric on his “Armed Forces Tea Party” Facebook page, was discharged yesterday for popping off his political views.

If you didn't catch the Facebook message, here's what the Marine said: “Screw Obama and I will not follow all orders from him.”
