So do many other interest and identity groups. Complaint is our political lingua franca: it's what Occupiers, Tea Partiers, Wall Street titans, religious and irreligious people share.

So there.
Geez: you are a liar.

Who are you talking to?

Is this your version of Bush's Hussein has WMDs?

Do you think no one can see the dozens of political posts you made on this thread?

Do you want to go backwards and find where it was that you were on topic here?

Good!!! These liberal POS are Terrible Creeps
In a polite way, seeing as you come across as a troll would you care to clarify your statement.

I am atheist and by most standards not a liberal.
Libertarian yes, but liberal NO.

I guess if you were an e-2 and the biggest weapon you had in Ethiopia was an M-14 you weren't really part of the national defense.
The Naval Contingent did not have anything as modern as an M-14. I was an E-3. RMSN.

Everyone wanders off topic. I will throw in my 2 cents in a political discussion. So what? Shoot me. Find an instance where I started a political discussion or claimed any special knowledge or expertize in these matters. In fact, as I am in no way unique, I presume my opinions may reflect a small but poorly represented segment of the population. Ignore me and I'll go away ... promise.

You did not and do not have a clue.

The people who were on the front line- the Navy and the Air Force- remember.

Those on the other side as well...

Duh. I've already gone over this but one of my jobs was in NCA - National Command Authority - providing comms support to Air Force One ... and including whatever plane Kissinger was flying around in. It was a job. I did it well. Bite me. I was not involved or interested in the politics behind our Scope missions. Just pushing the right buttons at the right time. No different from you (if indeed you were on subs), no different from the AF guys manning a missile silo ... get over yourself.

A newly found letter penned by Einstein just went on auction. I sold for $3 million.

In it, Einstein said...

Quote

The word God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honorable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish. No interpretation no matter how subtle can (for me) change this. These subtilised interpretations are highly manifold according to their nature and have almost nothing to do with the original text.

but barefoot will keep it going because it suits his agenda; which is to disagree with everyone and to be as obnoxious as possible at the same time.

Better for trade.

As the US is such a massive market, trade improving helps you and me.

What explosion is coming? There came one in 2008 and somehow you guys pulled through. Yes, we are still in stormy waters, but we can actually look forward to the end of the effects of the recession.

Well, that *was* actually illegal.

Still, a huge thrill.

Howdy, DF!! Passably well, thank you and hope you are the same!
"Risky" is a relative term. It's not risky at all if you can be certain of a public tax funded "safety net". Assessing risks and accepting the responsibility and consequences of poor choices lends moderation, conservatism and due consideration to a broad spectrum of behaviors ... social, economic and personal. So yeah ... it's "fair" if that "stroke of misfortune" is the result of a poorly calculated risk.
Okay.

Now, let's assume it was not a risky investment.

Imagine me a blue collar worker, straight out of school and get laid off after a year.

Is it fair that that person then has to live a life of poverty?

The getting head in a public area is much more rewarding, I should hope.
