I had the displeasure of spending time in Saudi. Had to work with the Royal Saudi Air Force. These people ain’t right. They were not familiar with western plumbing and always washed there hands and face in the toilet before morning prayers. Should I have said something?
Hey Sarge, Spot on. First off, you paid your ‘fair share’ when you raised your right hand.
Anything after that should be credit due in return. I have been out for thirty five plus years now, but I still stay close to the Corps; the Old Corps. The ones who were taught to read and write at least. I was asked recently to give a class on basic compass and field navigation to a younger generation of Marines who have lots of sensitivity training and can play games on a computer yet can not read,or write, or write in script, or tell the time of day on a dial clock....or use a compass.
Most of the young today could not identify a map of the earth if it was printed on a globe.
Sadly, I have also met the school teachers; not all, but enough. I do believe that your 60% is about 98% over payment for its return value. Send this to your local School Directors and tell them they can write that on their ******* helmet and wear it!
P.S. Button up that Flak Vest!!!!!

You city folk can make jokes about coyotes if you want but those of us that live in flyover country know that you don’t mow the back 40 unarmed.
One ran in front of the car this week 6:15 am in S. CT. It was cooking.
Just throw on some Grateful Dead or Phish, they'll know what to do.
Who's on shrooms, the coyotes or the drivers?
Don't brake, accelerate. These are nuisance animals and around here it is open season on them all year long.

And we are smart enough to lower a flag with the ropes to change it instead of climbing the pole like a moron.

Ben Carson could be our first black president.

Natural rights? If you say so,.
Why is it not enough that apparently most Americans will tolerate what they don’t condone ( gay marriage)? They are also required to bless, celebrate and support the unions. Shouldn’t a clerk be able to say I don’ want to help you do something that is wrong in my eyes? why can’t these couples respect the clerk as they expect to be respected. Drive 30 minutes to the next county and get their license and be done.
I'm kinda wondering if he will shoot himself in the foot good and true before the nomination, and I kind wonder if he is planning it on purpose.
OBAMA WAS NEVER IN THE MILITARY EITHER
Obama was in the KGB security forces does that count.
No Donald. It didn't give you more training militarily. You don't understand military training and you're wrong on this, in addition to insulting pretty much every military member that has been through basic training.
Best check out military schools before you get high and mighty in comments. US Armed Forces LOVES the cadets from these schools because it makes their job easier plus they get highly qualified people who go straight to leadership roles. It's technically not the military buts its based on their formula 24/7/365. So anyone going to these schools where they live all year, except for breaks, are purposely designed to feel like they are in the military!
You can't say that.
Trump is Transmilitary.
Hillary just announced that she is a retired 4-star General. I didn't know.
If you consider that a major portion of military personnel go into it mostly for job training, then Trump is probably accurate on that statement. I was in the Navy. The major military experience I had was taking orders for ***holes; a whole lot of them all the time. Probably the same thing in boarding school.
Realize this exerpt is from THE NEW YORK TIMES,,…,…….The “biography/ hit piece” was not sanctioned by Trump, after 6 visits Trump realized the author was a con. Please go read the full statement: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/09/09/us/politics/donald-trump-likens-his-schooling-to-military-service-in-book.html?_r=0. It’s clear in the full story, Trumps reference was the ATMOSPHERE of the school was military all the time and although you weren’t technically in the military they sure made you feel like it. Big difference than what The Blaze is hawking isn’t it? You all know you can’t read something and swollow it whole. You all know The Blaze HATES Trump cause hes not religious enough for Bishop Beck.
I’d b willing to wager that Trump’s military academy days were on par with that which the military is currently producing; the former probably even more strict.
It’s better to have attended a military academy because they toughened you up at a younger age, so you were already ahead of the game. There’s no telling how candy-assed even military academies have gotten these days.
Trump = “winning”.
Dude’s gonna win, and he’s gonna wing BIG.
If I am reading this correctly, he said he has more military training than most guys GOING INTO the military....he didn't say he has more than most guys coming out.
As a Marine Veteran, I have to say... don't go there Donald, don't go there.
Let's imagine that Hillary said this - I doubt many here would be so understanding.
This is just insulting.
The state that separates its warriors from its scholars will have
thinkers who are cowards and fighters who are fools.
I hope that his comment steers a lot, if not all, military (current and former) away from Mr. Trump. He is not a fit CIC. We need leadership, and a team that is not afraid to take on ISIS in a devastating way. I am hoping for a Fiorina - West ticket! Defensor Fortis...
I wonder what MOS he was so well trained for without ever going in?
Understandable how you feel MSgt, but then again, can we really trust the NYT here? I'm calling out to question NYT, if that's what trump really said in that piece. I don't have the book to know any better, but we do have proof that the media in the Tri-State, particularly out of New York, isn't always on the up and up about things too.
I'm his age. This ass is comparing a prepp school with the Tet Offensive of '68 I got news for him. I don't give a fuck what you think boy, keep your ass at home with mommy and daddy's money. You ain't got a prayer getting my vote. You pissed me off calling McCain a coward, now you've really done it. Get lost bitch. I've seen too many like you. Just because somebody made money it doesn't give them guts. This dude ain't got no guts. Just attitude.

Check back when you grow up and make E-7.
You will be smarter by then, if you make it.
My father is a retired Master Sergaent, by your reasoning he's at least as "brilliant" as you are. So from this moment forward any opinion you have that disagrees with him means nothing, you cancel each others opinions out.
It doesn't matter which of you is right or wrong of course, because by the standard you've just established your opinion matters "more" somehow due to rank.
Just to be on the safe side, no one should ever be allowed to write anything about firearms while on the island of Manhattan.
I just consider the source as somebody who knows absolutely nothing about firearms. They are called 'journalists.'
Yet another shining example of the firearms accumen at theblaze...
That's what I was going to say as well.
I might buy one of the stripped lowers when they become available, but they can keep the stock, muzzel brake, and crappy handguard. I like customizing my rifles to my tastes rather than the manufacturer's choice.
Looks like they corrected the article.

750 million total. I believe based on current populations that comes out to about $150.00 per bird.
