The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list

Our military is being destroyed .
wish they had that when I was in.
maybe a special exemption for those who celebrate Festivus.
Obama vs. The U.S. Military file
Obama Gay file
well, apparently, no, they are not....they see their fat PENSIONS and they'll do anything or say anything to get to their 20 yrs...afterthat, there's always political appts that really pay the big bucks, so carry the dirty water they will.

our military is becoming too much like the Russian military....they're treated better than other Russians, eat better, better pay, better health care, and for that, they'll shoot at their own citizens if they have too...

If you have control of the military you don’t need to fuss about distractions like laws, constitutions, the bill of rights, elections or golf course green fees.
Insanity running amuck.
I don’t recognize this country.
I can wait for the special uniform exemptions-
Skinny jeans and shiny sequinned shirts?
Freeper libertarians kept trying to hide behind the “states issue” as they promoted the national homosexual agenda.
I notice that when they get a portion of their leftist agenda into law, they quietly move on to their next leftist goal.
