BS, it was that way when I was in in the 70's and 80's and it was that way before WWII. Soldiers at Schofield Barracks were not armed when they came under attack by the Japanese.
Under a 1993 order passed by then-President Bill Clinton, carrying a private firearm on a military base was banned on military bases in the United States. Individuals could privately own firearms if they lived on base, but those firearms could not be carried on the person while on base. This order was revised on Pentagon orders in 2010, and now specifically requires that every private gun brought onto base be registered with the Military Police. The rules also require harsher enforcement of rules forbidding the carrying of private firearms on base.
* If George Washington had learned that soldiers under his command had died from a turncoat attack within an American Fort ó not because arms werenít available for his men to defend themselves but because an American officer didnít trust American soldiers to bear arms ó Iím fairly certain that American officer would have been summarily executed by the same firing squad as the turncoat.

I'm sure we shared our "intel" with them. Why not the Spanish Embassy in Yemen?
Spain's embassy was to close Monday and Tuesday, maybe it reopened maybe not.

There is a lot of intel bouncing around that indicates a growing settlement of Al Qaeda and Al Qaeda affiliates along the Southern coast of Yemen in the remote city of Al Majalah. That's where our drone and other strikes are centered.

Yemen's military either can't or won't control that area.

Maybe the Trooper was gay. Did you notice it was a big dyke woman?
I had a bitch try to do that to me in the Orlando Airport-checking me for weapons-believe me-for no reason. I could barely get panties on underneath that size 4 dress.

Obama has already delayed portions of ObamaKKKare in an attempt to influence the 2014 elections.
I think that Congress ought to pass a law that if any republican gets caught running for re-election in 2016(3 years away) to avoid working in Washington D C with President Obama on the country's business then President Barack Obama gets a 4 -Year Extension(a Third Term as U S President) It is the only fair thing to do since the county owes President Barack Obama for allowing the republican-controlled House to waste four more years.

Galt agrees completely.
No debates are better than rigged debates, such as the conspiracy between Obama and Piggy Crowley.
Galt just hates facing bad news. He can't admit that Mitt Romney was just a terrible debater when faced with the facts. Like Romney, Galt wants to blame everything else for his own failures.

Galt once had a Gestapo TSA agent (black female) open a mini-bottle of Galt's Scotch to sniff it. She said it didn't smell like Scotch, as if she might have a clue. Or as if Galt would want the Scotch once this clown had placed it near her face.

They always have a choice not to get a mortgage. This is a contract freely entered into by both parties, unlike ObamaKKKare.

Contrary to myth, automobile insurance is not required by law in many states, California included.

Romney was faced by a conspiratorial moderator who misstated the facts.

However, Galt faults Romney for not being prepared for this scam and for not challenging Piggy Crowley and the lying Obama.

Galt tends to agree with you on this, but Obama's practice of selective enforcement of portions of an otherwise overall unworkable bill negates this approach.
If spiraling costs of ObamaKKKare require huge spending and tax increases beyond those in the bill, should Republicans be expected to vote for such spending and tax bills to keep the program afloat?
How did bushie boy get the funds for his invasion of iraq son?

A retard like you cannot make the connection, that while many people agree we should close the embassies, they "ALSO" agree that Obama has made a mess of his responsibility in foreign affairs and is responsible for the dismal unprecidented situation we are in.
Our standing in the world is worse now than it was with Bush. Putin laughs in Obama's face.
Simpleton.
You are an idiot.
And yet, still smarter than you.

After all, Romney insulted the British on their 'poor' execution of the Olympics.

They had to remind Romney how 'great' his stint was!
