    Oh I think I know more than you think, since I was a private once.

    I know disdain for O's is common. I was that way as a young man.

    I know that PFC Schmedlap thinks we "just don't get it".

    It doesn't mean I don't care.

    Yes, that's good. NCOs are needed and are the backbone of the service. Nothing gets done without them.

    However, without officers, the military would be chaos. I think we all know this.

    When I had a chance for a commission, I took it. I'm glad I did.

    E7 CPO is unique in the Navy...when your and E6 you are lucky if and officer will give you the time of day...Most of them treat E4 thru E6the same but when you become E7 you become all knowing to the same officers.......You have your own quarters and mess......You are with a bunch of other chiefs who are basically the same age as you and the officers depend on you for everything......You eat better then the officers and you don't have to put up with a bunch of 02 and 03s and I made plenty of money..........It was the right choice for me in the Navy I am not sure about other services if I had been in one..............

    At the State of The Union, when the cameras panned across the crowd in the Congressional chamber, I could have sworn it was a nursing home group getting ready for Bingo.

    Why does WV keep electing Robert Byrd? Good God.

    Pelosi may wait on 'Don't Ask' vote | HamptonRoads.com | PilotOnline.com

    Weve done a heavy lift, and I dont know, Pelosi told reporters. Ill have to examine it. Well take a look. Well sit down together and see. What is the advantage of going first with legislation? Or would the legislation more aptly reflect what is in the review? Or is it a two step-process?
    The legislation should come first if you think it's a rights issue, Nancy. Perhaps the new Speaker sat in 2011(I pray), will be able to make a decision.

    It was the Austrasians, that hewed on bravely through the thick of the fight, it was they who found and cut down the Saracen King.

    But I could call a Naval Officer a liar and have done so.........You lefties are doing it again though......Please remember this thread is not about me.............
    If that were all it was, he wouldn't announce it as his PERSONAL OPINION. I think there is a bit of denial going on by those trying to ignore his position.

    Well, I've tried like hell to get an honest answer from you about when you last "lived and slept and ate and showered, elbow to elbow, 24/7" with others in the military, but you just don't seem to have an honest bone in your body.

    One can only wonder if you were this evasive, intransigent, and dishonest with your fellow sailors.
