    I'm pretty sure you're giving her entirely too much credit there.
    Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.

    Sorry, but Article 88 applies to everyone, and it's punitive. Hold your wrist in front of your monitor so that I can virtually slap it.

    Negative Col. Wording specifically states "Commissioned Officers". I am a "Noncommissioned Officer".

    Any commissioned officer who uses contemptuous words against the President, the Vice President, Congress, the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of a military department, the Secretary of Transportation, or the Governor or legislature of any State, Territory, Commonwealth, or possession in which he is on duty or present shall be punished as a court-martial may direct
    Us low brow enlisted folks are expected to badmouth our betters. We don't know no better.

    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    If I still lived in Springfield, I would volunteer to stand on Belvoir and say it for you.

    The way I read that, you can't express contempt for Congress, as an institution and the core of our Republic. I don't see that barring you from making contemptuous remarks about contemptuous Congressmen as individuals. However, since I am not the one who would be brought up on charges, I can understand your caution.

    Out-lawyered by an enlisted troopie, and an Air Force one to boot. Oh, the shame... <sigh> Okay, I'm putting my wrist up to the screen....

    I appreciate that, but don't feel constrained by geography. Say it wherever you are, as it is still true.

    Especially since I would not be surprised if our current leadership decided to use politically incorrect speech as a reason to purge us unenlightened personnel from the force.
