    The worst of this is there will be legions of rethugnocant drones falling out for morning formation and marching to the polling places to duly mark their ballots for more of the same.

    Not only privatize the military but pay them what they are worth, given the job. In Vietnam Westmoreland was once asked by a reporter after the rank and file had received a wage increase (privates went from $96 a month to $105 a month (a 10% increase!) whether that was a good idea, given the economic troubles of that particular quarter. His response was a question to said reporter, “What would it take for you to walk point in a Marine squad?”

    The reporter replied completely straight facedly, “not even for my current salary of $25000 a year.” So now if we privatize the military, how much will we pay a Grunt Rifleman? Radio Operator? Machine Gunner? Corpsman?

    Right now they make something like twenty to thirty thousand a year. How man of you dullards out there would walk point in a patrol making twenty thousand a year. What price would privatizing the militry have to settle on to get someone to volunteer to be a Grunt Radio Operator in the fire team at the pointy end of the spear?

    My answer is that just like many things the government does and many things no private entity would be willing to do if we left it to private business, we couldn’t afford it. That is why government exists. For the social good.

    It is true that many times government could do it better but to claim that business could always do it better is just plain stupid. However, being a fair minded liberal of the far left extreme type I am perfectly willing to let you rock ribbed conservative types have your way. No subsidies whatever for anything at all. No government except for providing mutual defense and ensuring the free flow of goods between states. No government interference at all in the business of the people. I would give you six months and you would be crying like a bunch of little girls.

    …and of course that was what the Yahoo folks originally intended and it was a good thing when it started but got very messy in trying to out google Google.

    One of the best in a long, long time.

    I noticd this Bill Ewing person has a “pro” designation. Helps me to understand the meaning of “pro.”

    I will keep my “amateur” status, thank you.

    It is funny to read comments from what appear to be folks who are not in tune with liberal thinking. Now, I am about as liberal a person you will ever see, meet, or hear about. The problem with you dimwits is that you seem to think it is only a liberal trait to not look both ways at crosswalks with crosshatch markings because some state law tells people they should stop for pedestrians who are approaching such things. Every day I cross at one of those and every day I look both ways and then proceed when it is safe. Now, it seems that only dimbulb conservatives had parents who told them to look both ways before proceeding. I remember those days well and now sixty or so years later, I still honor the wisdom of those words.

    What I do not do is cast everything in a liberal thought pattern vs a conservative thought pattern because that would imply there is actually a conservative thought pattern. The direction this thread goes is evidence there is none. The only thing in plentitude here is more stupid ranting by a bunch of complete idiots who think anything emanating from local, state, or federal government is a bad thing.

    For those of you who are like that (Lewreader, for one) the world is not even close to your implication. You ought to find better things to do than complain about the obvious and go join your friend Mallard the duck or whatever it is. Your negative nonsense is simply childish and tiresome.

    Perfect Jade, just perfect. In fact call it Medicare. The baggers would never figure it out.

    The folks at the Navy Hospital in China Beach didn’t have MRIs and all that fancy stuff but they knew when they had a Marine sergeant with a few months shy of three years in country due to a full tour and four extensions they had one needing to go back to the world. After over 40 years of dealing with it, I suppose they might have been correct making that decision two extensions earlier. War is like being a heroin junky. Probably why so many war veterans become heroin junkies. And why so many others become bourbon and vodka junkies.

    Right, Lew. Except that a transfer to the Corps isn’t exactly a transfer. When I left the dogfaces in 1966 as an E-4 with three years of service, I became an E-1, recruit. After Boot Camp and ITR, I was graciously promoted to E-4, recognizing my prior service. You cannot become a Marine by transferring. You can only become a Marine by earning the name and that requires Boot Camp. After my four years in he Corps and three of those years in Vietnam I figured I had enough of either green machine but I will always be a Marine. Not so much a dogface.
