    Re: An age check

    Back around 1980 I was getting $20.00 to wash out cattle trailers where my stepdad worked. Kind of nasty, but they provided a pit and fire hose. Took about two hours tops, so figure about 10/hr. Not...

    Poll: Re: A question about Hedders

    I looked into header wrap and coatings when I put headers in a TransAm. If you read most header manufacturers literature, they will not warranty headers that have been wrapped. The wrap tends to trap...
  3. Re: More hanus findings about the NSA wiretapping program

    What I find interesting about the responses here is that one side says that since a committee reviewed it and oversights are in place is proof that they've been there the whole time. While the other...

    Re: Why the heck is the AF going to do this ?

    It could also be interpetted as a mission originating in the US then proceeding to another area, such as the B2's missions from Whiteman. As a contrast to the Predators which have much less speed and...

    Re: war crimes

    Unless you look at war as an extension of foreign policy and the end result of diplomacy that went nowhere. War crimes are then serious abuses of human dignity that occur during the act of war. Not...

    "As a combat veteran, I want to make it clear to anyone in uniform and to their loved ones: my poorly stated joke at a rally was not about, and never intended to refer to...

    Re: Tribunals for Terror Suspects

    Another way to look at it with the military trials is that there are things the military recognizes as a crime that a civilian court does not. Also, it seems that the military trials I've seen are...

    Re: Tribunals for Terror Suspects

    I didn't say we should treat them ill either, but neither should we coddle them and give them comfort. They should know there is a price to be paid for the way they do things.

    Re: Tribunals for Terror Suspects

    Orang,
    I think you may have misinterpeted my remarks regarding the Geneva Conventions. Probably becasue I wasn't real clear in my comment. What I was saying is that the actions I described are not...

    Re: Tribunals for Terror Suspects

    Thanks for the vote of confidence tuck.

    A lot of this seems to be people griping about the situation but offering no real viable alternatives to the situation. Makes me wonder what they would be...

    Re: SEAL falls on grenade to save squad

    This one is a little older, from 2002 and Operation Anaconda. This is a guy from a rescue unit my squadron supported from Moody AFB in Georgia. His wounds came from a round that barely missed his...

    I look at it this way:

    Not that they may be cliche, but the old classics of:

    FUBAR

    and

    BOHICA

    I was bored, tired and really couldn't think of much else.

    Don't worry, the search is still on. The media just doesn't cover it as much since it's not something that can be shown with a lot of action shots.

    There may be something to that. However, most of the places I've lived have been pretty well blended from a racial standpoint. Maybe living together in a neighborhood instead of in "their own part of...

    Re: Blue-state hate

    In my experience living in the south since the early 90's, I haven't seen things that could be called "hate crimes". Is there prejudice and racism? Yes. Do people act violently on it? Doesn't seem...
  23. Re: NSA eavesdropping program ruled unconstitutional

    I would hazard a guess that there's more accountability than what's being let on. I've had to deal with classified material and, believe me, the details are a bitch. If something needs to be kept, it...

    Jimz,

    Your post reminded me of something that I've thought about several times and not posted. But, it's something that needs to be considered in dealing with Arab countries on any level.
