Yeah, I was thinking that maybe my advice to VE to “go back to school” may have been a mistake. School is the last place you need to be in order to understand the real world.
I guess VE’s “vast education” is his Achilles Heel.

1. I have served with some pretty good people with a name Ortez, Gonzales, and other similar names
2. There are some dog gone good women who serve in the United States Military. No, I don’t want them in combat situations; but I have no problem with them in support roles.
I once served with a Rios, he was a good Marine,,,, he got booted when they found him in the rack with an E3.... He was an E7 at the time... another hint...... the E3 wasn't a female..... yuck
I'd lay long odds most WMs could kick your arse VE.
Good for you, you're a good person. You probably even support gay marriage and think abortion is a woman's health issue.
By the way, I have no problem with ortez the landscaper or Betty the nurse.

My extended family has direct experience with this. My nephew, who entered the Navy, was stationed in Japan. He had a condition where is aorta was misshapen and kind of wrapped around his spine a bit. I guess it wasn’t enough to keep him out of the Navy, and it was noted in his medical records. The Navy scheduled him for surgery to correct the condition, but instead of using a thoracic or cardiac surgeon, they assigned a general surgeon.
The general surgeon screwed up, and my nephew bled out on the operating table. To make matters worse, they lost his body for 5 days during shipment back to the United States for his funeral. My sister couldn’t sue the surgeon, or the Navy. She even got a congressman involved. No dice.
Then she reverted back to her normal dialect as soon as she entered her hotel room. In fact, I believe she said to her campaign manager: “Ugh! Those confederates sound so dumb with that long drawn out drawl…..but ‘dumb’ is what I rely upon.”
As for me, American By The Grace of God, and Southern By Choice.

But their parents are still illegal, right? Flag wavers of the Stars and Stripes or not, they are still illegal.

Some times, snarky is warranted.

The Illegal Alien is Fat on OUR dime.
No hugs for you….adios.

Some time last year I was at an airport bar that was across from my boarding gate. There was a woman reading an electronic book at the bar and I was standing behind her (no seats at the bar). Being a reader myself, I glanced over and read what she was reading….and what little I read (less than a paragraph) had my jaw dropping. Pure filth and trash.
My problem with "50 Shades of Grey" was that it was a badly written book and a boring movie. It also came out of a fan fiction website dedicated to "Twilight" fans. Twilight is apparently equally poorly written but was something I've heard described as "abstinence porn". The popularity of such a book amongst women ought to tell you something about what women want, at least in their fantasies.

This guy is a nut case. Next thing you know, he’ll be singing the praises of a top tax rate of 90 per cent.
Sailor: Yessir. And as we all know, he already has. Just not HIS tax rate. :)
What is sickening is that this sort of thought process is quite okay with the left.but Josh Duggar who made a mistake as a young teenager has been maligned by the same people relentlessly... even though he repented and changed his life! I now wonder if Bernie Sanders fulfilled any of the above fantasies?? I find him disgusting...I am enjoying though, that Democrats are finally being exposed and not just the Republican's.

I usually either use the “burn off” method, or tin foil. Never tried the onion. Next time, I’ll do the tin foil method followed by the onion.

1911-A1 .45ACP….my favorite handgun. Double-barrelled is awesome. Would be quite the holster required to wear on your hip though.
1911-A1 used to be my favorite until I bought an XD-45. Now I'm torn which I like better. Both amazing firearms!

D.A. Veteren –
Deadbeats dilute the pool of funds available for the truly needy (or in your case, the deserved). That alone should tick you off. Probably could easily double or triple your monthly allotment without increasing the burden on those who see their taxes continue to rise because of these ever increasing programs.

Gotcha. Section 8 housing then.

I wouldn’t mind helping them down that path, Slayer.
