You cannot......handle it, but it is true.
A kitty keeps loneliness away.
More meowing, less hissing. I speak meow, do you?

He wasn't acting there, HE WAS the Colonel. Damn fine job. But the Law prevailed and He paid a price for his actions.

BTW: I once worked graveyard shift in a civilian job with a Marine (there is NO such thing as an Ex-Marine. Don't ever address one as such! :) ) and I asked him once, if your Gunny pointed to a random individual and said "shoot that man", what would you do?

I think you can guess what his immediate response was...

I hope no one would do that, but that wasn't the point, of course...


It's a mentality I don't understand fully, even though I served in the US Army for nearly 11 years working with people from most of the Services.

ps, I thought "Jarhead" and "In the Valley of Elah" were also well worth seeing.

If you understood fully, you would not question my post.
You do not question direct orders. Sir.

Unfortunately, our elected officials now have taken this to another level, and now consider themselves above us......witness their taking their leave from 'our' health plan.
