    Punitive Articles of the UCMJ
    Article 85—Desertion

    “(a) Any member of the armed forces who—

    (1) without authority goes or remains absent from his unit, organization, or place of duty with intent to remain away therefrom permanently;

    (2) quits his unit, organization, or place of duty with intent to avoid hazardous duty or to shirk important service; or

    (3) without being regularly separated from one of the armed forces enlists or accepts an appointment in the same or another one of the armed forces without fully disclosing the fact that he has not been regularly separated, or enters any foreign armed service except when authorized by the United States Note: This provision has been held not to state a separate offense by the United States Court of Military Appeals in United States v. Huff, 7 U.S.C.M.A. 247, 22 C.M.R. 37 (1956), is guilty of desertion.

    (b) Any commissioned officer of the armed forces who, after tender of his resignation and before notice of its acceptance, quits his post or proper duties without leave and with intent to remain away therefrom permanently is guilty of desertion.

    (c) Any person found guilty of desertion or attempt to desert shall be punished, if the offense is committed in time of war, by death or such other punishment as a court-martial may direct, but if the desertion or attempt to desert occurs at any other time, by such punishment, other than death, as a court-martial may direct.”

    One can be a deserter in peace time.

    Many universities have legacy points, including public universities. However, Bush earned his way into Yale and earned his diploma. Don't forget, he also graduated from Harvard. Now, do you have any evidence that he didn't early admittance and those degrees? If you don't, then you are best advised to stop on this one else you continue to embarass yourself.

    *can't believe he is actually sticking up for Bush -- the perils of actually trying to be fair, I suppose*

    Two Ivy League degrees and he isn't all that bright? Granted, I am not a big fan of the man, but you have to give him his due...

    Interesting. One of my minimum requirements for supporting a candidate is the ability to form complete sentences.

    Re: Memoir by George W Bush to be published in November

    I would be very interested in reading this book, and I do wonder how he will justify his thoughts on different subjects. Oh not everyone is a partisan hack well I try not to be anyway, but sometime when I get mad my partisan side comes out of me. I myself vote both democrat, and republican so not all of us are intolerant of others people political theology.

    Re: Memoir by George W Bush to be published in November

    I just received an advance copy of the book. I thought I would share my favorite passages with you:


    A. A is for Al Qaeda. Antichrist Al Qaeda attacked America and made me very angry.

    C. C is for Cheney. Cozening Cheney cheated the Constitution with his consistent claims that CIA coverts could be compromised, that his company cronies could capitalize on the Iraq conflict, that coercion through torture was cool and constant surveillance of the country's citizens was compulsory. Though capable, he was also crook so he commanded no confidence of the citizenry. The creep was my companion, confident and comrade.
