- Colonel Paul YinglingNobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.
Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.
All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

It's pure politics....waiting periods add nothing to healthcare. Neither does a politically motivated hysteria over "assault" weapons.

The doc can ask whatever he want's, doesn't mean I am compelled to tell him the truth. I think it is a back door resulting from this HC law from the Marxist n chief, and it is stupid. You want the doc to ask me if I own a gun? How about I tell him to go _____ himself! You did not provide a valid medical reason for the question being asked in a routine physical, you only seemed to display you lack of knowledge of depression, and mental illness.
But let's be clear, the doc can ask what ever he wants, he may not like the answer though.
the only thing that's my dr's business is my health and health related issues - I don't own a firearm now, but when I did it still wasn't their business. Just the same as it's not their concern that I read books late at night or slouch while i sit at the computer.

You just can't let paranoia rule your life like that.
