Re: Atheist denied from Air Force reenlist


...and as I mentioned earlier, the officer who made an issue of the "so help me god" thing was a buffoon, a true professional would have let it slide and welcomed the Airmen into their new enlistment, it would have been a win-win

Re: Will Putin call NATO's bluff?

I thought that the Soviets could easily overrun any of those Baltic states. NATO is hopelessly outnumbered in troop strength. Russia would win a conventional war. The only thing stopping them is the risk of a nuclear response from the [more]

Re: Will Putin call NATO's bluff?

I don't claim to have these answers. We are not dealing with a rationale opponent and the rational and logical actions we take will not likely be met with a rational response from Putin.

Re: Greatest sin of all time by Obama!

Don't let facts get in the way of those truthy feelings.

Since becoming president, Obama has spent all or part of 138 days on "vacation." By the same point in his second term, President George W. Bush spent 381 partial or

Re: marching in straight lines...

Often it is painted as the deciding factor (i.e. the British didn't know how to deal with it).

The guerrilla tactics were a factor, just like they have been with every large army forever. Look at the trouble the Vietcong gave the US [more]

Re: Pastor Pederast Rapes 14 Yr. Old Boy

Minor correction, HHS wrote that rule/excemption. The original ACA law did not provide an exception for any business.

It may be a quibble, but as I understand it, in effect it did. The HHS didn't create the exemption on their own [more]

Re: Sulu nails it

How is banning some BC methods "religious exercise"? How do we distinguish this from, for example, blood transfusions (JWs). Or requiring head scarfs for women in the office (Muslims)? Etc.
