    I am pretty sure that is why you created this thread, to pretend like you speak for current and former Marines...
    The question is more important than the answer!

    This puts a lot of bite into the OWS protest.
    not really. a hugely disproportionate number of LEO's ARE retired US Marine. Vermonts' State Troopers have had so many that they went ahead and modeled their organizational structure on the Marines. There are places where you basically can't be hired as a cop unless you are a former active duty Marine.

    later it said "four tours". I would bet he did 8 years and 4 tours, as that would be a standard rotation.

    I did feel that Marine vets would bolster the strength of the OWS movement. The guys that are not re-enlisting are having a terrible time finding jobs. Being able to kill quickly with your bare hands doesn't boost one's resumé.
    Of COURSE I have you on the straight party ticket. Ive only been here a year or so but have seen your complete democrat kneejerk defense mode since day one. So this pretense about the bankers and borkers and their political influence...it means precisely...squat.
    My lean is 'very liberal'. Figuring out my voting record isn't rocket science, but I'll give you an E for effort.

    They might have a board of directors to set the tuition prices. I just don't see the upper crust telling them that the prices are too high. The Universities in Texas were regulated by the State for tuition costs. As soon as the GOP got in those regulations were canceled. That was nice for the greedy bastards in the universities. They started raising the tuition costs and will continue to raise those costs for the foreseeable future if they are not reigned in.

    I said that "I cannot pretend to speak for the Marines" and this is your response?

    I could see this. It's a natural avenue for civilian employment of the physically trained. Good for the guys that want to do LEO work. For the others, there's not much out there.

    So rather than pretend are you now saying that you DO speak for the Marines? Is this a better response to your reply ?

    Oh no...dont lie and dont attempt to backpeddle now...it just makes you look silly. You didnt post a thread about vets making the OWS movement credible...you were gleefully procaliming "there will be blood!"

    And of course your lean isnt hard to determine...which is what makes you 'that' guy. Pretend to hate the corporate influence in politics...but you are the first to pull the lever. You LOVE the corporate influence. you LOVE the influence of bankers and brokers...because they are shtuppfing YOUR candidates. And thats just plain comical.

    It's uncanny that you know me better than I know myself. Have you ever been called a 'control freak'?
