We really owe it to the military for what they do day in and day out that we never even hear about," Phillips said.

We ALL owe the military a debt of gratitude for protecting our freedoms every day!

With all due respect to the 8th Amendment, it would be nice if the USBOP could build a 100 foot deep tank (with an accompanying walking plank) for these clowns at Leavenworth, Atlanta, Marion, or some other federal facility.

One thing is for sure, that 5' 2" pirate who recently arrived in NY is bound to receive a hearty "Ahoy Matey" in the prison shower.
