Maybe the little liberal critter is confused and developmentally challenged ?

The sign next to the little green spot that says Veterans is for Veterans matters like people who have served with honor in the American military,got it ?

When a Veteran wins the CMH (medal of honor) it is a very big deal for some people who love America and Winning the Medal Of Honor isn't political by any stretch of the imagination ,OK so far ?

A kid like Eyeball who has never been exposed to the concept of military honor and is ignorant in maters patriotic is a very frightening example of what could be in store for America in the future .

He is just another worthless little piece of shit that has no concept of duty or honor. There are too many of them in our country. They are selfish little dickwads who mostly are not good enough to serve in the armed forces.

I feel sorry for the little worms. They live pathetic lives.

Here is a picture of some of our troops serving in a far away place. I wouldn't trade one of them for ten thousand little shits like Eyeball. He is not worthy enough to clean the latrines for any of these real men.

He will never know what it is like to be a real man. He will only know sorriness.

Says the man who shoves his military service in the face of every member, who claims moral clarity whilst abusing his position as an admin, who cowardly and repeatedly smears the character of others and doesnt have the guts or integrity to back down and apologise when he is clearly out of line.

I never claimed to be a hero. Ever. I said I served. I did.

Then again, to you, the only service that counts is in the military, nothing else matters. Far as I am concerned, I'm the one with moral clarity, you're the one that treats everyone with contempt.

You called me a coward. You smear the character of men you have never met based on a spurious "measurement of courage" then claim to have "moral clarity".

Moral clarity to me means having the guts to admit when you are wrong. Something you will never do.

I know the excuse you dreamed up after being called on it. The truth of the matter is you didn’t have it in you to serve your country.

Of course nowadays that country did the old cut and run from combat in Iraq after electing a Left Wing government so what difference does it really make?

I think it would be just best for you to stay out of discussions like this. You have interesting opinions on many other topics but when you go and start making comments about other people's lack of military service you are threading on thin ice, know what I mean?

Everybody out!

30 January 2008

Beachgoers flee the water at Manly yesterday.

HUNDREDS of swimmers were sent scrambling out of the water at North Steyne Beach yesterday when a shark was sighted about 200m from the shoreline.

The shark alarm sounded about 1pm after a local surfer spotted the shark, believed to be about 6ft. It was seen about 200m from the shore near the stormwater pipe on North Steyne Beach.

It was the second time the alarm has been sounded this season.

Manly Council beach supervisor Lee Burnes confirmed the sighting.

Yesterday there were a couple of hammerheads seen off North Head in a feeding frenzy. Mr Brown said it could have been a hammerhead spotted at Manly as they skim the surface while other sharks tend to swim further below. "I've seen bull sharks and bronze whalers out feeding where they won't get hassled by boats," he said. "There were a couple of bull sharks in a feeding frenzy off Bull Head yesterday, which sounds dramatic

No in the real world of academia military service doesnt mean much. I have classmates who are in ROTC or just getting out of the military and into college and they openly admit they screwed up. I have 4 years on them for jobs that require a college education (ahem. any job worth getting), so I get a pretty sizable head start.

I actually thought about joining the military, but when recruiters couldnt keep their story straight from one visit to the next I left with a really sinking impression about how they do things. The eventual realization I came to was if you want to take orders you join the military and if you want to create you go to college. Obvious exceptions both ways.

I don't think you know much about the real world.

I worked for a Fortune 20 company that hired tens of thousand vets. I hardly knew anybody in the Management ranks that weren't vets.

You don't have to be a little prick and make up stories about how your friends regret going into the military. We call them "Bouncy Tales" here on CU. They may fly over at DU but we understand them to be BS over here.

You are a shitass for not serving your country during a time of war. That selfishness makes you unworthy of respect by decent people. You are allowed to live in this country without serving but that right was paid for by the blood of real men and women. Men and women that you are not worthy to shine their boots.

Your "obvious exceptions" noted, I went to college before you could spell it. I graduated and joined the military where I give and take orders (and "create").

I realize you have much growing up to do but try to be a little more open minded before you completely embarrass yourself.

Going to college and joining the military are not mutually exclusive endeavours.

There are three distinct choices to make when you get out of HS:

1. Workforce
2. College
3. Military

No in the real world of academia military service doesnt mean much. I have classmates who are in ROTC or just getting out of the military and into college and they openly admit they screwed up. I have 4 years on them for jobs that require a college education (ahem. any job worth getting), so I get a pretty sizable head start.

I actually thought about joining the military, but when recruiters couldnt keep their story straight from one visit to the next I left with a really sinking impression about how they do things. The eventual realization I came to was if you want to take orders you join the military and if you want to create you go to college. Obvious exceptions both ways.


Although not too many military vets end up as social workers, a couple have ended up over the years in my office. They get a certain status for being vets, and are higher up on hiring/promotion lists. One vet I remember was a particularly good worker-she could deal with pretty much any situation that you could think of coming up in children's services.

I had a friend who was in ROTC in college. She was a good student, and people trusted her. When they needed a roommate for a girl from Japan with a domineering and overprotective father, they put her in a room with the ROTC girl, because they knew that the father would like and respect her (which he did, when he came to visit). Then again, I went to public schools, a public university and I work in the public sector, and there's no prevailing anti-military mentality in any of those places.

My best friend in high school enlisted in the Navy after graduation-she was rejected for the Naval academy, because she had eyesight issues, but did become an officer through other means (ROTC, also). She was a straight A honor student in high school, and from what I read at Classmates.com, highly successful in business since leaving the military.


The military never appealed to me, and obviously it doesn't appeal to you, but it is not fair to say that those who serve instead of going right to college end up 4 years behind you. They are able to take classes on base and online while serving, and get degrees or trade certification while serving. There are some fields where the best education you can get is through the military-like aviation.

Trying to make a point on the grave of a dead hero, what a pathetic excuse for an American megimoo is.

Either you know nothing of the military or you like to stir shit. I'd be willing to wager good money that a person who lied about their age in order to enlist during war-time would not be subjected to a military trial. If still under age when discovered, sent home. If of age when discovered, probably asked if they wanted to enlist legally.

Another fact you might want to take home from this is that a military trial is a court-martial not a court marshall. That was a glaring clue you had no idea of what you were talking about.

We don't.

Now, could the comment about the death of a MOH recipient have been made without reference to the Democrats and their defeatist agenda? Yes. Was Megimoo pushing the envelope? Yeah, he was, but in an era when those who are accused of disgracing the uniform are household names, wouldn't it be nice if the political opposition and the media devoted just one-tenth of the attention that they focused on the bad actors to genuine heroes? Here's an exmple of what I'm talking about: I'm sure that you can name the stars of the top ten movies currently at the metroplex, and I know that you are aware of Haditha, Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay, but can you, without Googling it, tell me the names of the four men who were awarded the Medal of Honor during this war?

The eventual realization I came to was if you want to take orders you join the military and if you want to create you go to college. Obvious exceptions both ways.

I've got more then 6 years of on the job experience as a Meteorologist in the military. I've forecasted for situations all over the world. Japan, Korea, various Stans, the entirety of the S.E. United States. I've been trained to operate in some of the most stressful environments in the world, with minimal tools. On top of just my normal job, I've been trained to be a supervisor and a leader through programs that other countries beg to send their military through.

Now take that person who went to college the day I enlisted. They spent the next 4 years at school learning less then what the Air Force taught me in 6 months. After my training, I spend 3 and a half years honing my skills while their still in school. At the 4 year point, they hit the job market, unsure about how to truly forecast, and now have to find a job. In the mean time, I'm getting to the point where I'm becoming an NCO, and assuming leadership duties. I'm also finishing my batchelors degree in meteorlogy, since the Air Force had already granted me over 100 college credits in training. I was able to leisurely finish my degree taking 1 or 2 classes a semester.

Now where at the 6 year point. My enlistment is up. I've had 6 years practical experience. I'm a trained and certified supervisor. I hold the same level degree that my counterpart has. I've served in warzones, honed my forecasting skills when forced to deal with remarkably small amounts of data, and have proven myself time and time again in high stress situations that can result in peoples deaths.

He's been on the job market for 2 years, has little practical experience, and over all has never really been trusted with high level material regarding the job because of how new to the game he still is.

They learned "Military Honor". Oh wow, talk about something no employer anywhere gives two shits about.. especially in a place like Chicago where people actually care about success.Too bad people like you are too stupid to realize that the ability to pursue life, liberty and the pursuit of of happiness (a.k.a. "success") would not be possible if men with that military honor you obviously despise hadn't made their tremendous sacrifices. You get a free ride on their backs, then spit in their faces after they get you to where you want to go. You are truly an ungrateful, selfish low-life, but the great thing about that is that those very qualities will make your existence on this planet very miserable. While others will be happy and content because they treat their fellow man with respect and dignity, you will always wonder why life is so hard for you. You'll never give any thought to the possibility that your misery is your own doing, as you only have the capacity to blame others for your failings. Such is the fate of liberals.

I see the fine CU folks are still bitch-slapping liberals with remarkable skill. LOVE this place!

My old name was "Bob." Been busy--have a beautiful 19 day old son. Wonderful!

Hire the college guy. At least he has an excuse for predicting the weather wrong :p

My ex & I had numerous experience vs education discussions. My ex holding a masters degree naturally esposed education was the better pick because after all they have proven they know the subject matter. I dissagreed saying experience is the proof of ability a college degree just shows someone is learned in Theory not practical application.
Mr Smith and I have had similar discussions before. He has an Associates, a Bachelors, and 2 Masters...and was working toward his PhD when his divorce derailed the attempt. He also teaches college, so is very much in favor of the college route.

I have one lowly little Associates of Science...but make more than his base salary every year. It drives him crazy.

Of course, for 'lid's sake, I must add that Mr Smith is absolutely excellent at what he does, and fully deserves to be paid much, much more...unlike quite a few college grads. :D

"PLEASE HELP ME WIN, BUT IF I CAN NOT, LET ME BE BRAVE IN THE ATTEMPT"

Don't know why but for some unknown reason that just came to mind. Won't elaborate on where it comes from lest someone take it the wrong way.

I don't see that here. It's one of the most inspiring quotes and for someone to take it wrong would require one screwed up world view. And I do know where this quote originates.

Not to brag but I make my ex's annual income in about 3 months. I drunked out of college 2 times. Not everyone is cut out to be an academian nut.

not knocking the ex's education either. She finished a 18 month masters program in something like 8 months. She was working fulltime & pregnant at the time also. i was laid up in a half body cast at the time so I couldn't do much but set around wishing I could scratch my back. I learned the hard way the falling don't hurt the sudden stop is a bitch though.

A college education can be a wonderful thing. It can also be totally unnecessary. Hard work is far more likely to pay off than a degree, especially one backed with a lousy attitude. (I'll name no names... :D) However, I will say that several of the best techs I've worked with have military educations...which count for as much, or more, than a degree. :)

A degree is just for openers unless you work in a degree mill then it's a necessary .
Most young engineers fresh from expensive technical colleges like CalTek, MIT or Harvard are heavy into some program language with little or no Physics or Engineering background so they take up space .

When they have worked on several large systems projects with people who know what they are doing then they are starting to haul their own water and may start doing some good work.

fuck off aussie. we dont have compulsory military service in america.

Why would you listen to this pathetic young man about any military topic?




My uncle served in Vietnam and was exposed to Agent Orange over there. He was never able to have kids. That kind of sacrifice is something that McCain understands, not Obama.



Cute story, doesn't mean McCain should be president. In fact any responsible voter would not let that have any bearing on their decision.

'C' is for COOKIE and COOKIE is for ME! YAAAAY! I LIKE CANDY!!!

Where did this little mouth-breather come from? Seriously, which one of you guys gave this Forrest Gump CU's URL? How many times do I have to remind you guys that this is not the place to bring Jerry's kids. Keep the window lickers helmeted and strapped into the short bus bound for Chuck E. Cheese . We've got topics to discuss here, and I prefer my topical discussions to contain a little less drool.

All kidding aside Eyelids, you are a stupid, stupid person. I don't have anything against the mentally challenged, but I have plenty against those who choose to be mentally challenged through willful ignorance. The only logical conclusion that explains your asinine behavior is that your mother didn't knock enough smarts into you when she had the chance. That's a damn shame, because now you are our problem. I don't mean just this board's problem, but America's problem. You are a disgrace to our country, our heritage and our way of life.



Liberal jackass, you dont know the meaning of <honor/respect/meaningless unquantifiable trait usually related to the military>, if you werent such a pussy and served in the military you would understand.


So to your waterheaded way of thinking honor, discipline, respect, courage, etc. are unquantifiable meaningless traits that employers shouldn't or don't care about? These traits boil down to one thing:



A [person] who has learned the lessons the [military] teaches will always do the right thing, even when no one is watching him, and even if the personal costs are great.


Employers sure as hell care about that. Men with Honorable Discharges all ready have the bonafides to prove they've learned the lessons the military taught them. How about you? Do you have those kinds of credentials? The kind of credentials that say, "This man can be trusted."? No you don't.

That leads me to my final point. The real reason you are vehemently against the military and the men & women who serve is because of your own insecurity. You were too scared to join up and go off to war. Therefore, in order to feel better about your own cowardice, you have to scoff at those who have the courage you don't have. I'm sure you'll have thousands of other reasons you didn't join up, but I know they are all bullshit and so do you. You didn't join because you didn't have the courage. So now you attempt to degrade the service of others because you wish you had the balls to do it yourself and you can't see yourself as inferior to those who did have the balls.

All sorts of people don't join the military, and it doesn't make them cowards. However, you didn't join the military, you don't support it, and you badmouth it every chance you get. That screams penis envy like nothing else.

That's why the left insists on reminding us of the exact number of casualties sustained in Iraq, so that they can manipulate the feelings of the public for our honored dead in order to undermine what they died for. It's a despicable tactic.
