hey captain your are an idiot, you are so accustomed to military life but forgetting that it is pretty pure socialism.All get free medical paid by taxpayers, all get 30 days paid vacation per year, per rank there is housing, traveling, moving expensive etc all paid. Tax free smokes at the PX, tax free booze at Class VI, oh that is right you stuck with the NG for some of the same bennies. And like so many other idiots in uniform you think you are a republican. get a life dude, earn and pay your own way.
And as for blaming a CO with the wrong info stop BS'ing. CO's would know or check it out...

AWesome!

How come the paper is not reporting on the news that over 340 ballots that were cast for Al Franken are now void? The people were felons and were not elgible to vote. Why is this not being reported? What are they trying to hide?

There is nothing socialist about earning benefits. We give the military certain benefits because of the job they do and what they are willing to do to defend this country. Socialism is taking from those that produce to give to those that don't. Not even close to the same thing. Your chosen screen name says it all. You are the idiot. One thing I am absolutely sure of is that you would never risk anything to defend this country so you don't understand anyone who would.

That's really, really stupid. The "study" you cite doesn't back you up. The study, done by a highly partisan group (The Minnesota Majority, a.k.a. Mary Kiffmeyer isn't going to give up without a fight), talks only about "suspected" or "possible" voting by felons. It stops short of drawing conclusions, although it is not discouraging the dumber element of society from making the points you just did.

Besides, why do you think they voted for Franken? Norm Coleman winked at official corruption while he was in the Senate, so I would think felons would regard him as their candidate.

man I am so glad so many fools sit here longer than I do and think they know everything.
Military service is living like in a socialistic country, period. They are not producing but serving the rich ownership of the world NOT the safety of American residents. you guys need to get a life and learn. As for this capt, he needs to find out how to really work....most of you do too.

The law is poorly designed and this honorable man has done everything he could to make certain he followed it. He'll make a great leader in St Paul come January!
