Johann, you are now my enemy. If you want to fix America, I’m right there with you. However, your Latin phrase indicates that you wish America destroyed. You gotta come through ME first, Poindexter.

Does anyone else feel like we have just gone off the cliff? Seems to me like our acceleration to damnation has reached free fall speeds. I wonder how far away the canyon floor is.

Black vs. White, Gay vs. Straight, Religious vs. Atheist, Republican vs. Democrat, Poor vs. Rich, Women vs. Men, ad infinitum. Someone is always driving a wedge between us. We say United We Stand, they say divide and conquer. They are winning, people.

Are you saying Mizer should give the Saudis a hand?
Come on, the Saudis just want to be head over heels. Or was that a head up? Or maybe keep your head in the game? For they sure will not put your head on straight.

How many counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, child abuse, and other statutory violations can we expect to be filed against the staff?

Let me get this straight… this video stereotypes white students and the message is don’t stereotype black students. Makes sense to me.

So just do nothing, right? Let’s imagine for a moment that you have a son in school and his teacher finds evidence of suicidal ideation in his notebook. Now let’s say that the teacher thinks nothing of it and takes no action. You learn about this after you find your son hanging dead in his room the next day. Tell me that you would be totally cool with the idea that the teacher could have spoken up but didn’t. When I was stationed in a hospital in Iraq, we had a soldier come through with a self inflicted gunshot to the head. In his pocket was an appointment slip to see the base shrink that day. Every minute counts when you are in a suicidal state of mind. If you discover someone with SI, get them to help immediately and stay with them until they get that help. There is nothing excessive about trying to save a life.

Epoch bad call by the bouncer. However, can someone clear something up for me? When I was in the Army, we were forbidden from going out drinking in uniform unless for an official function like a dining in. Does the Navy have a different standard?
Former Army as well, but this was Fleet Week, which is kind of a big deal for the Navy in promoting the Navy to the community at large. Also, I bet there were functions in the duty stations you were at, where officers and senior enlisted went off-post to attend in their Class As or Dress Blues.

I’d have paid cash money to see one of them dump the Porta John on it to douse the flames.

I can’t blame the schools for this one. If any of us are waiting for the school to teach our children values, national pride, and to be a good citizen, we are failures as parents. We have the responsibility to raise our own children and to educate them properly DESPITE what the curriculum is at school.

I see no evidence that she’s racist. However, she looked like self centered bitch with control issues.
Try a "progressive," this somehow makes sense to the intellectually and morally challenged.
Tank, you took the words right out of my mouth. Libs/progressives are the devil on earth. These people including all politicians are evil, destructive and A$$wholes! Plain and simple!
This is a legal issue. The constitution protects people, not humans, period. If you want to use the law to force others to comply with your religious belief, you need the law on your side, is is not. Their is no protection extended to a cell, egg, sperm, embryo or fetus. These are scientific terms, needed because it is not a child, baby or person yet. Although the religious tend to be scientifically illiterate, There is a profound difference. Religion can't be allowed to violate someone's rights.
Until birth, when you are named, printed and given a certificate that proves you are a person, with the legal protections that come with that, it is part of someone's body and OUT OF BOUNDS in the same way you cannot be allowed to forcibly remove someone's kidney, irregardless of what a religion thinks.
Your analogy is flawed because eggs of species on the endangered list are protected by law because they are separate individuals, considered offspring of that species, and expressly named in the act.
People are covered by other laws, only after they are born. Don't like it? change the constitution.

Since it is a grenade which is deployed by hand, it is a hand grenade. It’s just not a fragmentation grenade. Though civilians think of a hand grenade as only the frag grenade, any of us with a military background who payed attention know there are several types of hand grenades to include this non lethal type. That being said, you can’t be serious in the opinion that the police should not have access to non lethal riot control gear, can you?

As the USPS is micromanaged by congress, they have all the business maneuverability of a rudderless battleship being towed by a jet ski. They are saddled with billions in payments to a fund retirement benefits 75 years out. If your household were required by law to prefund expenditures anticipated into the year 2090, would you be able to keep your power on or feed your family?

I’ve been a government employee for half my life, and I take offense to many of the comments here. However, I understand how easy it is to fall into the habit of making generalized statements. In my 21 years in the army, I can’t tell you how many times I disparaged you “stupid civilians” as a group when I was remarking on the stupidity of just one. In every walk of life, there are those who excell, and there are slackers. Bear in mind that when you disparage a group for the actions of one, you also disparage a whole lot of people who bust their backs and do not deserve the crap you dish out. The individual who raised the flag up side down was either negligent at his duty or intentionally did it for an unknown reason. Try not to think in the collective terms that the left so love.

Get your facts straight, chowder head. “Funneling money into” means what, exactly? You seem to imply that the post office is budgeted with tax money. That has not been the case since the postal reform act signed by NIXON, for Christ’s sake! The reason for post office deficits can be summed up with two facts. 1. For almost ten years, we have been required by the government to prefund retirement benefits for employees 75 years in advance. Without that requirement which no other business entity has forced upon them, we would be in the black. 2. Any steps we feel we have to take to get out of the red with this prefunding requirement must be approved by congress. If every time you wanted to change prices, close a facility, or alter your operation in any way at your company you needed congressional authorization, just how long do you think it would take for Congress to screw YOU over? We all know just how well they run their own budget. In short, we’re being screwed over by the government just as much as everyone else is or more.
Another issue is salaries are insane for the managment, post masters up the ladder. They in large part got positions because of who they knew or blew. They have no idea of day to day affairs to run the offices much less the whole of the U.S.P.S! Then the union affairs and payouts because someone bitches because they got help from another craft/ known as crossing craft ex. Rural helps city side. I see it as your a team TEAM, GET YOUR ASSES IN
THERE and get the job done, dont like it leave. The pay for the carriers are okay, reason rural carriers pay for vehicle and maintenance, gas and insurance out of there pockets, given a small tithe not really in line with there cost, they are the workers that grease the cogs, the
managment is problematic.
Sorry rant off.
These are certainly the talking points straight from your union brochures......but pull up an income statement for the USPS in the last 10 years that would have shown you in the black if you didn't have the funding requirements to actually fund your retirements instead of overpromising, spending future money, and then stealing it from the taxpayers later.
You think the SS ponzi scheme is a good deal for you....and are outraged that you can't have the same ponzi retirement scheme at the post office.
Too bad we don't force this on EVERY government agency instead of the thievery that is being committed today.
Geez, t-boy-sorry for causing you to go all "postal" over my comment. Hope you feel better getting that off your chest. Maybe you can pillage through some packages tomorrow in plain brown wrapping that will put you in a better mood.
