  1. True story: my first September at Bragg, my 1SG grabbed me (#metoo) and said it is lobster day at the DFAC. We feasted on lobster tail and then headed back to the office to figure out what the company needed with the money we hadn't managed to spend. What a joke. Well, fast forward two years when I realized that we were always on the range (both aerial and ground) in September because heaven forbid the Army reallocate our training annual ammo budget to what we had used the previous 11 months. And we were a Blackhawk battalion...with bullets...that costs dollars a piece. Imagine what the Apache unit down the street was doing with their missiles and rockets. Now multiply that by all of the military units and you get at what I have been venting about for years.
  2. Speaking of out-of-control spending, I have bitched about DoD doing this ever since I saw it first hand. https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2019/mar/7/feds-splurge-on-lobster-pianos-golf-carts-in-race-/
  3. Can the all-grey, frogskin PJs be considered throwbacks yet?
  4. I wonder which candidate the DNC and media will feed debate questions to this year.
  5. I am about 1/2 through it. Pretty good so far.
  6. I have 2 extra tickets if anyone is looking. Will sell them for $25 per.
  7. https://apps.npr.org/documents/document.html?id=5729035-Green-New-Deal-FAQ This is what she removed from her website. And I quote: “We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast, ... .” I am not sure where Brawndo fits in, but it’s gotta be somewhere. It’s got electrolytes.
  8. Today's news cycle: 1. Ocascio-Cortez rolls out the Green New Deal with much fanfare from the left, and all of the major Dem presidential candidates publicly back her plan. 2. People actually read her plan and realize if calls for elimination of farting cows and economic stability for those unwilling to work. 3. Ocascio-Cortez pulls her plan from her website. Not the best day for ol' AOC, I'd say.
  9. I really wish there was a viable, moderate third party.
  10. Virginia is a prime example of why I hate politics a lot of the time. The last few days we have basically seen this from the Dems in that state: - Photo of Governer with blackface emerges. Everyone (including AG) expresses outrage and calls for resignation. - Next in line is Lt Gov. (also a Dem), who gets accused of sexual assault. Many Dems call for resignation, because at least the next in line is still a Dem. - Next in line is the AG (also a Dem), who called for Gov to resign, also admits to using blackface. Now I am seeing commentary on the left that we need to pump the breaks on all these resignations because the next in line is a republican and that there is concern their party won’t take control of the state. Either these people are shitty and should resign, or they shouldn’t. However one falls on that issue is up to them, but it bugs me that what some view as a resignable offense morphs over a few days because it may strengthen the opposing party.
  11. So I watched the State of the Union, well until I got bored. Apparently the Dems don’t feel applause is necessary that we have low unemployment and that minority unemployment is low. Dems also seem to disagree that all immigrants should come to our country legally. Their applause coordinator needs some work.
  12. We are all hypocritical when it comes to politic. I think the government is too large and has no business dictating whether I purchase health insurance or what type I purchase. I also do not care that the NSA has access to all of my texts and phone calls. See? Hypocritical.
  13. I would say the proposal of an unconstitutional wealth tax is pretty extreme.
  14. I don't think he went to Mizzou to win a championship. I think he hopes to position himself for playing on Sundays and, like Grier, may have skipped the bowl anyway.
