Re: 1000 "Green Berets"

Sorry I fixed the formatting! I would also like to add that I was part of the “committee” at ProfessionalSoldiers.COM and it did take us a few days to work this response. Well over 1000 Special Forces Soldiers signed this letter. Do you all know how long it takes to get a consensus from 1000 Type A...

Re: The other decision

They are. There's one person who has, for the last 12 years, been running a training academy for his local law enforcement and security company employees. He listed as his credentials for his expertise that he was a retired Special Forces light colonel. His fraud was found out and he was sentenced ...

Re: That lousy attitude...no decency

That he decided to put that article out there on that day, and I'll say this again, shows that HE used it as a political tool, most likely to pour salt into a still open wound, probably hoping to bolster the campaign of his pal, our current head occupant of the White House. Krugman's piece was very...

Re: An ungrateful nation Lies to it's Military again

The LIE, is simple.. The Government made a commitment to the soldier, in exchange for 20 plus years of service, away from home and family often, deployments to any conflict so named, required to uproot family on a moments notice, and to receive pay and living conditions sub par to what a comparable...

Well, she is a republican, right? RINO I kinda' wish she wasn't retiring with a great big fat pension paid for by you and me...so that I could vote against her. Too bad citizens can't vote on the pensions of former congresscritters. That would put Mr. Weiner out on the street in a hurry! That would...

Re: Perry making a presidential run

Is it possible that Governor Perry didn't sign the bill due to the fact that he didn't want to anger big businesses which may be headquartered out of state, perhaps in places that are less pro-2A, and would like to keep those businesses on a friendly footing? I hope those companies vote for him, be...
