Our troops have been trained to make secret gestures that indicate coercion on the part of their captors.

This is an example:

Coercion Yes

This is not:

Coercion not

These general officers are the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

They, and the Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta, are very aware of the damage being done to our country's military and defense capabilities by the Traitor-in-Chief behind the podium.

That they haven't resigned in protest is a shame.



I just realized that 40 years ago yesterday, I enlisted in the most powerful Air Force on this planet.
I went places and met people I haven't forgotten to this day.

Under martial law, when I was only twenty years old, I was placed in charge of a township, during which I had an opportunity to save lives, by which a friend and I  were proclaimed "Town Heroes" by a mayor in South Carolina.

I hitched a ride on the president's helicopter, Marine One.
I did work that required me to wear civilian clothes for so long that I forgot to cut my hair before reporting to a squadron commander.

I drank beer with a former U-Boat captain.
I learned management techniques that I still find useful to this day.

I grew up.

First, I hope I don't have to fill in my email and home page URL every time I come by! I just filled it out above and had to do it here again :-( Oh, well... Thank you for your service and BOY, do I wish every young man could go through what you went through. Today, they're only taught to think the worst of America...what a disaster!

I'll make a wager here and I don't know you from Bosco... Your Dad or someone you looked up to like a Father was in the military during WWII or Korea. That's a powerful educational tool kids these days are missing. And it's gonna bite us in the a$$ soon.
