All four were tied somehow to the Afghanistan mess that Obama has long argued was the most important war. Each departure was staged as a resignation. They were usually tied to some personal indiscretions to save face for Obama, who would know of indiscretions as a product of the corrupt Chicago Democrat machine.

Funny how extremely vague that story was. By your reasoning, all generals should have lifetime appointments.
These people were not demoted, nor fired. They were just sent to other jobs, and if they wanted, they retired, as most do after a while anyways.
Not sure if you have ever been in the military, but if you do not follow the orders of your chain of command, you get in trouble. No one is beyond this rule, even generals.

TSF, I'm bringing in my own justice today. I saw on the news where they found the skull of that little girl, Zaharia)?) Baker, from Hickory, NC and her "stepmother" needs one of your favorite methods of dealing with bankers, the good ole guillotine. Before they use the guillotine, they need to cut off a hand, foot, leg, arm etc and put through a wood chipper like she did that child. I don't even know why people like her are still breathing. She should have received her punishment about 10 minutes after she confessed. Makes me sooooooo mad. Thinning out the population of people like this woman quickly would save the taxpayers a lot of money. That's my money saving tip of the day.
An eye for an eye just as Jesus said. Wait, that was the other god. I get this polytheism confused.

Someone once held my car door open in Charlotte at a KFC one night, didn't let go until he saw the end of my .38 S&W. I'm not living on the idea that "thier day will come" because I might not live to find out if our justice system worked.

Fire the TSA? Then you will whine and cry when another 19 terrorist take over aircraft and use them as weapons against Americans.
Since the luxury of flying is a matter of convienence and not a right, I think I will stick with plan even if I have to step into a body scanner. I got no "short" comings to worry about for the sake of making travel easier for me.
Perhaps the problem is, is what people are trying to take with them when they travel.
Sometimes I go to the airport body scanner just to show off.

Yes, if a gun is pointed at your head you have a choice. What one chooses to do is up to that person.
Slavery was a choice for the slaves. They either agreed to slavery or they died. Again, not much of a choice but a choice none the less. Many slaves chose to leave the plantations and head north to freedom, again, they made a choice.
Only an idiot would distort the idea of choice....such as you have.
Choice-(noun)
1 : the act of choosing : selection
2 : power of choosing : option
3 a : the best part : cream
b : a person or thing chosen
4 : a number and variety to choose among
5 : care in selecting
My point is, and was all along, in the way we use language, we do not usually get so absolute about the words used. Language is dictated by the common use of words, not necessarily the absolute extreme of the word.
Your absolutism makes conversation difficult if not impossible.

Slavery is so little of a choice, anyone claiming slavery was a choice by the slaves would be looked at as if they were an idiot or crazy.
So when I said god was not really giving people a free choice, I see it as the slaves had no real choice.

Foe you waco: The iconic "Victory or Death" letter written by Alamo commander William Barret Travis is back in San Antonio for the first time since it left by courier at the start of the famous siege at the old Spanish mission 177 years ago. Travis' letter seeking reinforcements to bolster his outnumbered rebel Texans failed to prevent their deaths nearly two weeks later on March 6, 1836. But the following month, Alamo-inspired men led by Gen. Sam Houston defeated elements of the same army under the Mexican president, Gen. Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, in an 18-minute battle outside present-day Houston to win independence for Texas from Mexico.

The single-page faded and yellowing letter, with Travis' words written on both sides, arrived by police escort on the grounds of the Alamo yesterday. It will be displayed for 13 days inside the shrine, beginning today. Travis' letter, written Feb. 24, 1836, was addressed to "the People of Texas and All Americans in the World." "I call on you in the name of Liberty, of patriotism & everything dear to the American character, to come to our aid, with all dispatch," the 26-year-old lawyer wrote. He promised: "I shall never surrender or retreat."

Transportation Security Administration has spent $60,000,000,000
( 60 billion) since 911. No terrorist attacks have been stopped, 7 out of 10 weapons go undetected, they strip search grandmother while illegal aliens without papers or background checks load the baggage into the cargo holds. Their motto is GROPE AND PILLAGE. When it gets really cold, they even put their hands into their OWN pants.

Of course I expected the right wingers here would not understand or take my statement to an unreasonable extreme.
I was speaking to that one situation. I had no gun sticking out of my car, because if I did, I would not be allowed to have that job.
I have no problem defending yourself, but in some cases, you have few choices. Sometimes you have to just hope the law of statistics will work in the normal ways. Justice is not always swift. I could not imagine those guys(five of them)would be able to keep up that sort of behavior and not be in jail soon.
Even if you have guns, they are not always on your persons. So in some situations, you look at other choices.
I have no doubt all of you would have handed over the twenty bucks. Anyone who says otherwise is full of crap.

If the idiots would let passengers with concealed carry permits pack on board, no towel heads would even consider taking the plane.
If they did consider it, they would be killed before they could actually do it.
I am more afraid of idiots than terrorists. The only useful act I have ever seen by security was when they took a box of phosphorus stick matches away from an idiot tourist

Was he fighting for twenty dollars? No, quite the opposite. He was fighting for something money does not buy. He was fighting not just for himself, but for many others.

Actually I didn't, Mike. I agreed with Bacon that you and your band of nitwits villify those who have amassed wealth by hook or crook.
I merely pointed out that you tend to play the victim instead of being responsible because that is what easy or comfortable. For you. Not for me or Bacon. Sorry we don't want to join your pity party. Perhaps YOU feel a mere $20 bucks is not worth dying over. I feel it wasn't their's to take and instead of "manning up" and not allow them to take it, you graciously handed it over to live your yellow belly'd life another day. You are a coward. Will point that out every time I see you post. You have no right to have a say because you wouldn't even fight to prevent someone taking something from you that wasn't their's to take. And guess what happens afterwards...Domino's passed on that expense to it's customers by raising the price of pizza...raising the price of bread sticks...instituting a "delivery fee" and so on.
Another example of how socialism is ill advised and personal accountability and responsibility is needed more now, than ever.
You want to know why the nation is divided? You can claim all the racial craptola you want...The nation is divided because zipperheads like yourself say "it's only $20 bucks"
Those $20 bucks have added up and the bill is due cock smoker...make sure your check to pay your taxes will clear.
And you act as if the rich are victims because they have to pay taxes to live in a civilized society that is highly conducive to making money they made here.

Command- To exercise dominating, authoritative influence over: Ex. He commands any room he enters.
Demand- To ask for urgently or peremptorily: Ex. demand an investigation into the murder; demanding that he leave immediately; demanded to speak to the manager.
You should really learn to use the dictionary, it can be very helpful.....unlike Wikipedia where anyone can post a biased opinion/definition.
You just pointed to one possible meaning of the word and acted as if it were the only meaning of the word. Evidently you do not understand our language. Words can have a veriety of meanings.
If the context of the word in question is about someone getting attention, then yes, he could be commanding the attention due to his authoritative presence. But the context of my use of the word was not in any way like this. The ten commandments are not being followed due to respect, but due to the consequences that are threatened if they are not followed.
Christianity has this carrot and stick approach. The afterlife is one of the big ones they use. The claim of eternal life in a heaven or hell is quite the consequence if one believes it to be true. So if one is told he must obey the commands or be punished for eternity, this is not what I consider to be a request, but a command, or demand with dire consequences if he does not follow.

The commandments are demanding you worship the god also. How insane is it to demand such a thing? The consequence of not following the command of worship? Eternal damnation in a lake of fire. Our glorious leader? Kim Jong Il uses similar tactics.
