I agree. Picasso always seems to me to be laughing at the art world. He made is name while he was alive and then produced junk and in effect was saying “up yours” to the critics. IMHO.
I have spent years studying art and art history. To me modern art is fake art. People pretend to understand it and like it because they don’t want to look unsophisticated or ignorant. Otherwise talentless so-called artists make it and laugh all the way to the bank. Oh look! The emperor has no clothes! Ha!
That also goes for jazz too.

So then you carry two sets of keys with you so you can start it while you are parked at work, walk back for awhile and then go out to go home?

I’m so glad my vehicle has the keyless entry touchpad so I can start the car to warm it up, lock it, and then come back and punch in the code on the keypad to get back in.
When Ventrua was in the Navy there were only two SEAL teams 1 & 2, so many SEALS & UDT where mixed in the UDT Teams. Many were transitioned into the SEAL teams as the teams, grew. Jim Janos (Ventura) was in BUDS Class 58. UDT team members did not have to re-take BUDS to be considered a SEAL, they received the additional training as the Teams grew.
Ventura was assigned to UDT 12 for most of his time stationed at Subic Bay in the Philippines, (probably port security etc.) and for this he received the Vietnam Service Medal. Before he left the Navy he served in the Reserves assigned to SEAL Reserve Team 1 to finish his Navy career.
Ventura's brother Jan Janos completed BUDS first, in class 49.
Regardless of what people think, when I read American Sniper, chapter Punching Out Scruff Face, I knew he was describing Ventura. For this I put the book down for a few weeks as I thought including the incident was really childish. None the less I supported Kyle's Craft Int. and have some hats & other items.
If you read the book Kyle confronted Ventura and was the instigator, as he tried to introduce SEAL Ryan Job (portrayed in the move) to Ventura. Police responded but Ventura didn't make a complaint. Ventura had a chance to really jam-up Kyle but didn't.
Both Ventura & Kyle accomplished something most can never even try.
Is that Under Da Tank? (Preferable)
Under Detox Therapy? (Probably)
Underwater Dive Team? (Prehistoric)
I don't think we really know who or what this idiot is.

You do realize that Seal training and SNIPER training are different don’t you.
I had one one that was 90 – 95 pounds, and he wasn’t overweight. Gorgeous critter. He was 5 1/2 feet long from tip of his nose to tip of his tail. Lived to be almost 14 years old. A good buddy. Only problem was, his nose was just about kitchen table/kitchen counter height. You couldn’t leave him alone in the kitchen around meal time — he just couldn’t handle the temptation.

I take it you’ve never seen the handwriting of somebody (male or female) who went to Catholic school. My hubby has beautiful writing. I was just teasing a guy at work about his pretty writing, and yep he went to Catholic school.

That could depend on whether the signs he had it before he was discharged are present. Also, a lot of military bases are highly polluted. Could he have been exposed to something over in the sand box? For example, Ft McClellan, AL is highly contaminated with PCBs and it was a chemical weapons storage facility. PCBs are known to cause diseases, including hypertension, heart disease, diabetes, endocrine problems like thyroid disorders, etc. Ft McClellan is a EPA super fund clean up site. For decades people that were stationed there have had a whole host of medical problems connected to the PCBs and Chem storage yet they get no recognition from the government. This doesn’t have anything to do with “retirement”.

Your example describes PROSECUTION, not persecution. And unless you have a substantial amount of marijuana, enough to make it appear that you are selling it, possession of marijuana is a misdemeanor and misdemeanors to not warrant a prison sentence. Want to try again there sparky.

Persecuted by the courts? LOL I think you mean prosecuted there sparky.

I’ve been in this chapel. I had quite a great aunt who was a School Sister of Notre Dame.
