    you betcha'.
    This isn't a private company. Until Stein actually disobeys a lawful order, he hasn't committed any violation.

    If I had been court martialed everytime I said that I wasn't going to obey an order, I would still be in the stockade.

    But, this time it's different: we're talking about a far Left president, who is black. Leftist hypocrisy blows me away.
    He's a centrist. You're just way out there on the right, waving palely as you're left behind.
    Don't work out, work in.

    Since he doesn't have a birth certificate, all of his orders must be unlawful.

    To me, this is pretty messed up. Military should be allowed to speak their minds and give their opinions about what they are doing.
    So long as they still follow their orders. Facebook is turning into another form of list for both private and government entities. Not really liking this trend.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Fine, then...link us to the regulation he violated. He didn't violate the regulations, just because you say so.
