Military prosecutors say a Marine facing dismissal for his Facebook postings shared images with President Barack Obama's face superimposed on a jackass and sold "Nobama" bumper stickers online.

Marine Corps Capt. John Torresala on Thursday told a military panel at California's Camp Pendleton that 26-year-old Sgt. Gary Stein has acted irresponsibly and disregarded repeated warnings that his anti-administration postings violated Pentagon policy.

Torresala says Stein's security clearance has been taken away and he has no future in the Marine Corps because he can't do his job.

Torresala says comments that were prejudicial to good order and discipline were posted on a Facebook page used by military meterologists and could have influenced junior Marines.

Stein has said his views are his own, and he was just exercising his free speech rights.

If this guy was selling anti-Bush stuff, all the right wing AM radio fools would be foaming at the mouth about how "unpatriotic" this guy is.

But since it is about President Obama....... they all are defending his right to "free speech!"
