I doubt I could explain it to you, Simpleton Simon.  You probably would to understand it. 

But here goes:  using your purported service as a way to demean those who didn't serve makes you look like a pompous, ignorant, donkey.  People will not respect your alleged service if you try and use it as a means to try and make yourself appear superior to others who never wore the uniform.  As I previously said, it dishonors those who did serve, and did so selflessly.  The fact I even have to tell you this shows how much of a simpleton you really are.   

Trite name-calling. 

I could not care less if anyone respects me for my service.  I did not serve to get respect from anyone.  That kind of shit is for insecure idiots.

My words dishonors other guys who've actually served how again?  Because if you're saying that honorable servicemen don't pompously talk down to others that's tantamount to you admitting that you never served.  LOL

And shit, that makes sense to me.  Often, the guys who glorify military service, which you do constantly, are those who did not serve but wish they had. 

What happened BB?  Was it your fault?  Did they deem you mentally unfit or was there some outside reason you didn't serve?  Fess up, "patriot".

That's awesome.  How the F are you a lib? 


Bah, I'm only a lib when it comes to what kind of society I want to live in.  Personally, I'm pretty much a libertarian who's willing to break lib-backed laws if I want, lol.

BTW I'd say that at least half of the guys in that MOS are libs.  They are NOT usually military-loving guys any more than the guys who work in the base hospitals.  

It's probably different, though, for the 98G's that were unlucky enough to get tactical assignments (like attached to infantry units or whatever at places like Fort Huachuca where they mostly just played army most of the time) but I was lucky enough to get a strategic assignment (a REAL job, we called it).  We did shift work at the big listening post in Augsburg, Germany and called our officers by their first names.  It did kind of suck when we learned that there were civilians doing our same jobs in Augsburg that were getting comparatively big bucks and not having to do shit like prepare for barracks inspections in their free time.  

Personally, I worked on push-to-talk which isn't very glamorous.  It's like if a foreigner learned English only to monitor truckers talking on their CB's.  The awesome Russian language course was kind of a waste for that particular job.  Who needs to know how to use their Russian to rent an apartment, order a meal, or know the ins and outs of the genitive case when you'd really have been better served to have a vocab of maybe only 800 words (word like "nuclear artillery") but absolutely recognize those words every single time you heard 'em over your static-filled headphones.

The cool shit you'd hear about was either the from guys who monitored the shortwave stuff or at least the duplex operation stuff.  (Duplex is like now a telephone works and one time I remember those guys were playing a recording of two high-ranked Russians arguing and talking shit to each other which was a 100% more interesting than listening to Russian idiots try to follow driving directions given to them over their PTT radios.)

Shee-it, a lot of the language guys and women are gay, believe it or not.  (And a whole bunch are Mormons -- those choir boys have a pretty easy time getting clearances, lol.)

BTW, from what I gather you got hurt while at USMAPS or the equivalent.  Count your lucky stars, I say.  I and a handful of other guys I went through basic training with were offered a chance to try to get into USMAPS but our cycle had 3 or 4 West Point Cadets (juniors, I think) that we pumped for info about the whole military school deal and, from what we gathered, it entailed way too much bullshit and is not the kind of life for anyone who has any kind of issues with authority.

If you really did serve, you should be proud of that fact.  But trying to use your alleged service as a way to demean others is juvenile and dishonors those who have served. 

Other than Mons Venus, you probably claim to have served more than any who has posted on this board.

Man, you're a weird dude.  Ask you a question about a topic we're discussing and you can't be bothered to check it out but here you've compiled a dossier on my references to my service in the army. lol    Yeeah, you're normal, BB. lol

BTW, who the fuck are you to tell me what I should say or not say about my army service?  I'm completely forthcoming and honest about all of it.  The details I freely give should indicate that.  If you doubt me, ask me more questions and I'll be happy to answer 'em if I can.

Contrast that with your own claims of having served even though you're secretive (ashamed?) about what job you supposedly did.

You wanna try to explain this ridiculous notion you have that if I contrast my own service with others who simply talk a big game about being patriotic it somehow dishonors anything or anybody?  Or is this just more convoluted BS straight from the ass of the intellectually lazy and confused BB who won't back up half of what he writes?

You are a Ruskie? 

Kinda, lol. 

No, a 98G is a Signal Intelligence Voice Interceptor and the "Russian" part means I was with a unit that monitored Russian army troop movements and that kind of thing (in the East Germany before the Reunification). 

Basically, I was reading a lot spy novels (Ludlum, mostly) as a teenager and my recruiter leveraged that info and got me interested in being kind of a spy. 

It was a pretty decent way to serve since more than a year of your 4-year enlistment is taken up by language training (at the Defense Language Institute in beautiful Monterey, CA) and radio school (Goodfellow AFB in San Angelo).  The drawback is that there's not a lot of employment opportunities after the service except for those that basically just require a security clearance (like a janitor at NSA, we used to joke).  The guys that worked on our crappy radios, however, were getting job offers from Motorola and other companies like that months before their ETS dates.

Do you live in the U.S.?  Have you been listening to the president since he has taken office?  (Honest questions -- and I think I deserve points for not calling you Simpleton Simon again.)

I do live in the USA.  I guess you could say I've listened to the president since he's taken office but that's about the vaguest question ever so I'm not exactly sure what you're asking.

Anyway, in case you did want to answer my questions but just sorta forgot after posing your own, here they are again:

1. When you made the comment about about Obama's lack of leadership in the last 6 years as far as securing the border, are you still talking about the influx of kids from Central America or are you referring to illegal immigration in general?
I'm asking this because JM was questioning why it took 6 years (from 2008 until 2014) for the ostensible results of the 2008 law to be felt and that law concerned not turning away kids from Central America, right?  So I hazarded a guess that in the past 6 years it might be because the security situation in the kids' home countries has worsened and then you made your own comment about the last 6 years but it seems like maybe it doesn't have anything to do with the kids (since Obama didn't have much to do with enacting the law that makes turning them away illegal) so I'm asking for clarification.  Sorry if this puts you out at all but because of the posts before your post, your post isn't so clear.  

2. What's the major change you're referring to? -- What is Obama doing differently than his predecessor with regard to illegal immigration?  No big deal if you're not prepared to answer this intelligently.  After all, I doubt if you're some kind of immigration expert so it's reasonable to expect that you're reluctant to make claims that you're not sure of.  

3. To your knowledge, have our borders EVER been (what anyone would call) secure?
You're (at least a little) older than I am so you might be better able to answer this question than I can.  That's all.

I am sure Madcow will attack him relentlessly for making such a stupid excuse and for insulting all those soldiers suffering from PTSD.

For the next few months she will make it her duty to advice her listeners in Montana to not vote for this moron.

I hope she does.  And I, for one, will not give this guy nor Rand Paul my vote for president regardless of whether either one suffers from PTSD as a result of military service for our great country.

Say, Dario, in which branch of the military did you serve?  Personally, I did 4 years of active duty in the army as a 98G Russian and, big patriot that you are, I'm sure you did your part, too, right?

No.

Really?  Why not? 

And, if it should ever become legal where you live, will you try it?
8  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: ITS OFFICIAL! Fox host calls out Ted Cruz on: Today at 02:24:11 AM
You and others only want to deal with some facts.
...   

The guy who answers "I don't know.  Do you?" and leaves it at that says this?  LOL

You know who Beach Bum reminds me of?:  Years ago, after I'd served 4 years in the Army just before going back to school, I got a job as a retail associate (salesman) at a place called Cycle Gear, a retail shop in a small chain of stores that sold motorcycle parts and accessories.  It was a challenging job at first because I was always being asked questions that I didn't immediately have the answer for.  I was a good employee so, when asked questions like "What's the biggest tire I can fit on the back of my GSXR", I'd answer "I don't know but I'll find out".  Well, one week one of my fellow employees took some time off so a guy from another store (I don't remember his name) came to fill in.  This is the guy who BB reminds me of because this guy, when asked a question by a customer to which he didn't have an answer, would astound me by simply answering, "I don't know" and then just smiling until the customer went away.  

Some folks here, on both the left and the right, DO want to know the facts.  Often, however, BB is not among these folks.

I don't know.  Do you?

What I do know is the one major change over the past six years in this country is a president who has failed to secure the borders and been doing backdoor amnesty for illegals. 

Wait, are we still talking about the influx of kids from Central America or are you now just talking about illegal immigration in general?

Also, what's the major change?  What is Obama doing differently than his predecessor with regard to illegal immigration?  (Honest questions -- and I think I deserve points for resisting the urge to post that amusing "Thanks Obama!" video from Jenna Marbles.)

Side question:  Have our borders EVER been (what anyone would call) secure?  I doubt it.

Obama has the most powerful job in the world -- and all the perks that go with that. Yet he’s been criticized by some for seeming disengaged and frustrated with his job. What does the public think? The poll finds a large 41-percent minority thinks Obama doesn’t even want to be president anymore.

12  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: 5 NYPD cops choke unarmed man to death on: Today at 01:26:08 AM
...

Again where did this guy comply at all???

You don't think he complied some by not fighting?  If you disagree I'll watch it again but all I saw was that he started to turn away;  He didn't flail his arms or even try to run off like the world's biggest fullback (which would have made for a great vid).  The only danger he really posed to any of those cops was that he might fall on them.

BTW, I read that a couple of EMT's on the scene have been disciplined (suspended?) for not giving him aid on the street.  It's been alleged (haha, that's the weak way I have to put it because I'm too lazy to look for the link now) that the cops had the EMT's not try to resuscitate him on the street so as to try to avoid some responsibility for his death by being able to say that he was first pronounced dead in the ambulance on the way to the hospital.

Also, I've read that the NYPD chief was "irate" when he saw the video.  A sergeant who was on the scene might be getting in trouble for something like (fuck, I need to find the link tomorrow, I guess) "Not taking control of the situation" or some such shit.

BTW, s a guy who reads reddit's Bad_Cop_No_Donut forum pretty regularly (and has seen a lot of what look like police abuse videos), I'm surprised at all the attention this is getting but I'm happy about it. 

Hopefully folks will start getting riled up about all the dogs that are being shot for very little reason by cops these days next.

Nope.  But I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night . . . .

This was funny and I chuckled out loud.  Obviously you're not feeling pissy now.
14  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: She knew on: Today at 01:05:13 AM
this has been admitted by the progressive liberal rag Rolling Stone magazine when talking about how to pass gun control.

one of the steps was to make sure to stand on the graves of little children to get emotional support for the laws. Another was to push the legislation through quickly before rational and level headed reasoning could be brought into the conversation.

I am dead serious, these retards actually said that...

I hate to sound like an anti-everyone conspiritard but capitalizing on catastrophic events by using them to take away the rights of citizens is something practiced by governments (and other very powerful groups) in general and not by just the left or the right.

It does seem repugnantly callous that someone would think about the mass killing of kids as a great opportunity to take advantage of the shocked and grieving by quickly taking away their rights but I think the same tactic was used by those in power on the right when The Patriot Act was pushed through congress after the shocking events of 9/11.  

BTW, Naomi Wolfe talks about this extensively in her well-known book "The Shock Doctrine" especially about how this happens on an even bigger scale when very powerful entities pull this shit on other governments for financial gain.
15  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: She knew on: Today at 12:40:39 AM
Look, personally don't consider liberals very bright. Maybe academically but that just shows you're good at memorization and nothing regarding commonsense. You're knee padding for terrorist sympathizers who would rather make excuses.

LOL.  Liberals, conservatives, whatever.  This is about you, Coach.

Regardless of your political orientation I've read enough of your posts to know that you're just a backward, emotionally-stunted idiot who, besides being not very bright to begin with, knows little of the world because you didn't pay attention in school and then spent most of your younger adult life in the not-so-intellectually-stimulating environment of the gym and yet you now laughably criticize others who you admit are both more intelligent and more emotionally sensitive than you ("libs vote based on emotion") but somehow you still insist incredibly (lol) that you're wiser than them because you possess "common sense".  Seriously, what a freakin' joke.

Peddle that weak-ass shit somewhere else.  Your constant basic grammar mistakes + the lack of critical thinking you often display (holy shit, you can't tell an Onion story from a real one?) reveal you to be the last person on this board who should be writing with strong conviction about anything except weight training-related shit. 
16  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: 5 NYPD cops choke unarmed man to death on: July 23, 2014, 01:28:39 PM
I'm sure cops have abused their authority in the past.  This particular dude is clearly not one of those folks who was being cooperative. 

One of the rules of society is you don't fight with cops.  If they want to arrest you, and you believe you're innocent, the time to fight it is NOT when they're trying to put handcuffs on.  That's plain stupid. 

If "abusing their authority in the past" includes physical abuse that still goes on today, then I agree.

In fact, except for you introducing the the word "fighting" when talking about this guy dying, I agree with your whole post. 

In the guy's defense, though, he'd been previously arrested 31 times*, all for non-violent offenses, so he was probably at the end of his rope, emotionally.

You can sympathize, can't you?  I mean, as pissy as you get here on this board, BB, I'd bet you aren't beyond acting similarly.  (You probably ARE smart enough to back off and shut up when you see that arresting you and not just hassling you is the intent of the cops, though.)

*31 times arrested probably means at least a couple of times that number hassled but not arrested.  Not helped at all by the big dead guy's memorable appearance, I'm thinking;  Like Naimond with his distinctive hair in The Wire, some guys are liable to draw more attention than others just because they look different/memorable.

17  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: ITS OFFICIAL! Fox host calls out Ted Cruz on: July 23, 2014, 01:06:51 PM
I agree.

Has the security situation in the countries these kids come from been static for the last 6 years?
18  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: ITS OFFICIAL! Fox host calls out Ted Cruz on: July 23, 2014, 01:02:06 PM
Makes no sense. It doesnt take 6 years for the word to reach latin america, nor does it take them 6 years to get here.

The law they are blaming was passed in 2008. If this law is to blame for the current rush, why didnt this rush begin in 2008-2009? It is nothing more than the Left scrambling to find someone (bush lol) other than themselves to blame for this mess.

Sorry, I think I wasn't clear. 

I'm trying to say that in the 6 years since the law was passed, the situation in Central America has probably become worse.

BTW, I don't really have any idea about whether this is the case.  FWIW, I have heard that it's become much more dangerous in Mexico the last few years, though.

20  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: 5 NYPD cops choke unarmed man to death on: July 23, 2014, 12:50:23 PM
Arguably.  That's not my position and it doesn't sound like tony is taking that position either. 

Do you think the man would have been put in a chokehold if he was not irate and didn't resist arrest?

He might have been.  Cops being violent with folks who are complying is hardly unheard of.  In this particular case, the guy was large and scary enough to be threatening to many cops even if he'd been reciting nursery rhymes. 

Check out youtube if you want to see evidence of this kind of thing happening.

Probably what bugs some folks is that it seems like some folks would rather focus on the relatively minor mistakes made by the dead man instead of the major mistakes made by the cops.  A lot of folks, I think, will do this because they have an agenda of some kind.

I don't really think Tony's doing this, btw.  If I were to try to get into Tony's head, I'd say he's saying what he's saying because he's thinking to himself about how he'd try to avoid getting killed if he were in the same situation as the big black dead guy.  And, clearly, total compliance is the best strategy if the goal is to come out of the situation alive.

Lastly, though, it's a sad state of affairs when one has to totally comply with some idiotic/dishonest cops over some illegal cigarette allegations simply to stay alive.

here's the part where some tree hugging lib claims that the FDA and the USDA are in cahoots with large food corporations and keep information from us and give us food that they know will kill us.  yet that same guy voted to have that same government have more control over our health care in 2012.  yeah libs make a lot of sense.

His comments?  Uh, OK.

I haven't seen the movie* but from what I've read, it's primarily an indictment of the banking industry.

*I do want to see the movie now since it seems to have received generally good reviews (better than the ones I remembered from when it first came out).
