    I like how the tile of the article is “Stunning Revelation!” Er….no pun intended.

    No. For those of us who read the Holy Bible (Romans 10:17 So, then, faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.), this isn’t news at all. Every author in the New Testament warned us of this time.

    Actually….you can’t. There are plenty of moral agnostics and atheists than there are “walk the walk Christians.

    What made up the whole of walking the walk is when people would go through rough times and painfully ask what gave Christians their peace, their purpose? Plenty of church-goers believe in God but that doesn’t necessarily mean their names are in the Book of Life because they’re not in God’s Word daily.

    You’re my kind, vod.

    I, too, am stuck with Han Solo.

    A White House scandal and coverup?

    You don’t say!

    Really? Blaming the employees again?

    Right. Because it’s NEVER the driver’s fault.

    Here are the most popular reasons you’re stuck in drive-thru:

    1. It’s raining. Even though we’ve greeted the vehicle (“Hi! Thank you for choosing us today. What can we make for you?”)….there is no reply. Why? Because the driver didn’t want to get the car wet. So we’re sitting there and sitting there and sitting there, and THEY ask, “Hello?!”

    2. The driver has never been to our establishment. “I’ve never been here before.”
    Then maybe you should come inside first to check us out.

    3. The driver doesn’t know what they want. Unlike me, if I’m going to Taco Bell, BK, McDs, Wendy’s, Carl Jr, etc, I know which meal I’m getting before I ever pull into their parking lot.

    4. Multiple beverages/meals. This is a big one! Especially if it’s the first weekend of the month. At ANY establishment that serves food and/or beverages, every server (cashier, host/ess, bartender, barista) knows that everyone is a big spender while they have the money. Not so much towards the end of the month.

    5. The driver is on the phone. “Hi, what can we make for you today?” “HOLD ON!”
    Yeah, that happens. Maybe you should pull to the side and finish your conversation before taking up time and space that other drivers could benefit from.

    The part of the country I want to live in isn’t even listed. (sigh)

    If you have to ask, you have no idea how thorough Nobama (and Bush, to an extent) has been to get rid of those who will defend the Constitution.

    These Whispers show how stupid and selfish they really are.

    Do they believe that they are the ONLY people in the ENTIRE SCOPE of HISTORY that deals with returning veterans? That this is something new?

    They haven’t heard of Vietnam, Korea, two World Wars, the Spanish American War, the War Between the States, and even the great Revolution that gave us our freedom? Just to name the long-running wars of our nation’s history. But trust me, the rest of the world, the rest of history, families have endured distressed homecomings, too.

    Of COURSE it’s easier to love the sponsor while stationed stateside, or things are going easy, and divorce is so much easier now.

    It’s sad that the majority of these women can’t shoulder the weight of being the stay-at-home Dependent: our sponsors expect us to pay the bills, take care of the children, teach the children about their sponsor’s love and the hole in THEIR hearts that they aren’t here all the time.

    The dreams and expectations the sponsors have of coming home are dashed by stupid comments like, “Those cute return videos are fake!”

    What changes the dynamics of the relationships is that time stands still for the sponsor earning that paycheck – and it doesn’t for the families and dependents who have access to privacy, hot water and hot meals, peaceful sleep, instant entertainment, and people not trying to kill them.

    Ah, McCain.

    POW traitor.

    Scumbag.

    He’ll get his due.

    Getting used to deployments, I USED to ask Husband, “When do you guys leave again?” or during a heated argument, “You don’t live here! You just visit!”

    Used to.

    And then we matured the closer he got to retirement. Now I love to see his truck in the driveway if he beats me home from work.

    That attitude is because they lived a beautiful life on their Sponsor’s paycheck, which was raised to include separation pay, a housing allowance, per diem, danger pay, etc.

    You’re right: those Whisperers are VERY selfish. Maybe they should try living on their OWN paychecks, without any aid and assistance from that paycheck, or discount groceries at the commissary, or cheaper purchases at AAFES.

    Jarhead, as a Navy wife, I completely agree.

    But remember, the whole “gimme free stuff” Pandora’s Box wasn’t until 9/11. I’ve lived with Navy wives who have done exactly what you described: use their husband’s deployment raises to live a luxurious lifestyle, or take him for all he’s worth.

    It was rather embarrassing.

    For a man who was slow of tongue, he talked a lot.

    Ridley Scott is an avowed atheist.

    That’s all you need to know about the prism in which he made not just “Exodus” but “Prometheus.”

    Ditto for Darren Arenofsky (“Noah”).
