    This is wisdom. Nicely said.

    anyone who engages in such behavior today should be forcibly detained and evaluated for severe mental illness.
    Usually I try not to respond to your posts. But in this case I just have to say that I feel exactly the same about busybody government bureaucrats.

    what your mind will do to cope with the environment is amazing.
    Yeah. There is a shock. Revulsion. Some never get over it. Most do.

    Why does this have to be about you?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    and now, you are lying about my comments.

    I have never attacked the military or their mission or what they do, in this thread.
