cont...Oaths

All officers of the seven Uniformed services of the United States swear or affirm an Oath of Office upon commissioning. It differs slightly from that of the Oath of enlistment that enlisted members take when they enter service for their country. It is required by statute, the Oath being prescribed by Section 3331, Title 5, United States Code[1].

One notable difference between the officer and enlisted Oaths is that the Oath taken by officers does not include any provision to obey orders; while enlisted personnel are bound by the Uniform Code of Military Justice to obey lawful orders, officers in the service of the United States are bound by this Oath to disobey any order that violates the Constitution of the United States.

Text of the Oath

"I,[name], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God."

Officers of the National Guard of the various States, however, take an additional Oath:

"I,[name], do solemly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State (Commonwealth, District, Territory) of ___ against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the Governor of the State (Commonwealth, District, Territory) of ___, that I make this obligation freely, without any mental reservations or purpose of evasion, and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the Office of [grade] in the Army/Air National Guard of the State (Commonwealth, District, Territory) of ___ upon which I am about to enter, so help me God."

Want to hear about a stupid tax. It's called the 'Storm water Removal Fee'. I pay $72 dollars a year to let the rain run out of my yard, down the street into a pipe that that goes to the river.It's been there since before I moved here.
Depending on where you live you may also pay tax for sidewalks, underground electric service, multiple EMT and fire services and all sorts of other local/county/state fees. That's why I LMAO at you nonods who waste time yakkin about the federal government while your local governments are reaming you.

<quoted text>"Hurricanes are not unusual for the Caribbean in late October. In fact, South Florida is known to have a hurricane peak threat in October.
But what about a hurricane forming south of Jamaica, then moving north into the Bahamas, curving northeast as if it was headed out to sea, only to take a hard left turn, slamming into New Jersey....in late October? Oh yes, and let's not forget merging Sandy with the polar jet stream and an arriving cold front. A more perfectly menacing scenario than 1991's "Perfect Storm"." http://www.weather.com/video/sandy-from-space... Check this out: http://www.weather.com/news/weather-hurricane...
By the time it reached Jersey, it was a hella-storm.

Tropical deppressions gone wild..happens all the time during the hurricane watch season...mix one with cooler land fronts-hello hella storms. There's also some interesting theories on the east/west coast seven year fluctuation patterns of warmer ocean currents/streams that contribute to such too.

Listen Homer duhmmy... when the storm made landfall-ie -OFF of the water and onto land...the wind gusted a bit on the frontline...the eye was calm...and it was a little gusty dissappating. TWENTY minutes inland in many places-NOT much for DAMAGE done. Beach areas were hardest hit.
See the difference between Katrina and Sandy yet?
People LISTENED!!!!!!!!!!
You have no fcking clue what you are talking about. My office was without power out in PA 100 miles from shore as were millions of others because of your so called 'little gusty dissapating'. You are a complete fcking moron.

he might have won.
LOL
Mitt should have run on his healthcare reform(Romneycare) and climate change record as Governor of Massachusetts and he surely would have won. But, alas, as Nixon learned , a denial of a denial is still a denial especially if you tape the whole thing and got booted.

Twenty minutes inland in many places, remained fair-thee-well in tact.
I replied to your mental twin FloriDUH who said the relief money mainly went to wealthy who had beachfront homes.

This was a lie.

There was no statement as to most.

Most flooding victims were no beachfront home owners.

Try not to be such a fricken idiot all the time.
