    I wish I had the time to enjoy that civilian action. Anyway, artillery didn't jump with us. We had some Sheridan guys and pushed 'em out with the hummers before we dropped. My friends were pathfinder and tabbed, but I chose a PhD because peacetime.

    yeah the reason I asked was when I was with the 10th, they often called the artillery observer guys "FOs'" or "FAO's" I forget.... fisties or something....

    Yeah, I've heard FO for artillery, but there were no guns in the birds (aside from the Sheridans) except charlies from other companies. Maybe after the airfield was secure they came. Hell, I've set DZs for the 82nd band (slept with a fine musician from them too) - who can tell what the remfs are doing. fwiw, I also had me a parachute folder; they got chicks in some units.

    What corporate welfare? Texas has no state income taxes and TX knows that businesses bring employees to the state that buy goods and services and purchase property that they taxes on. Texas creates jobs many coming from your state. Thanks.

    By the way, Business owners get it, when will you? We need more taxpayers not higher taxes.

    You want more funding? I don't think we need more funding but if YOU do, then how about true shared sacrifice and getting the approximately 56 million income earning Americans that pay zero in income taxes to pay SOMETHING? You want more funding, then how about creating more taxpayers by putting the approximately 24 million unemployed or underemployed Americans back to work paying FULL taxes?

    The potential next VP of the United States continues to get it right thus is being ignored by the left and the media. Think about it?

    Press Releases - Newsroom - U.S. Senator for Florida, Marco Rubio

    “We don't need new taxes. We need new taxpayers, people that are gainfully employed, making money and paying into the tax system. Then we need a government that has the discipline to take that additional revenue and use it to pay down the debt and never grow it again. That's what we should be focused on, and that's what we're not focused on.

    “You look at all these taxes being proposed, and here's what I say. I say we should analyze every single one of them through the lens of job creation, issue number one in America. I want to know which one of these taxes they're proposing will create jobs. I want to know how many jobs are going to be created by the plane tax. How many jobs are going to be created by the oil company tax I heard so much about. How many jobs are created by going after the millionaires and billionaires the president talks about? I want to know: How many jobs do they create?

    Well, now I am pleasantly surprised. When the Bush tax cuts were made, it did take additional people off the income tax rolls. I thought that was foolhardy. Here is a first, Haymarket and I are in agreement. Which one of us should be afraid?

    I think Bush realized that we have a spending problem, not a revenue problem and although he didn't do much to cut spending his 2008 budget was 700 billion less than the 2010 Obama budget. Is there anyone here that has ever looked at the U.S. Federal Budget and questioned why we need so much revenue to fund line items that are included in state budgets? Obama wants tax hikes to redistribute wealth which is the change he envisioned but never expressed to the electorate in campaign speeches. The American people continue to buy the Obama rhetoric, his smile, his youth while ignoring his actual results.
