I never realized that Marcus Luttrell has a twin brother that was also a Navy Seal.   What a bad as5 family.

I'm thinking this is pretty close to the truth!

Young people probably forget that is how we got involved in Viet Nam

Military "advisers"...

I keep thinking about how totally stupid Hillary is basing her yet another candidacy announcement on her gender and nothing on the iussues.  if she thinks she will win because she's an ugly old broad and a grandma, she's in for a rude wake up call plus Bernie is coming on strong.

She's so full of herself that IMO, even low information voters can see she's totally fake.

At least Sanders, the communist he is, deals with issues and takes a firm stand.  Hillary does nothing but flaunt herself like she's the 'anointed' one.  I don't see it happening unless she makes an abrupt course change and soon.

She's obviously assembled the worst group of advisors in any Presidential campaign.

Here's an example of overkill on government regulations -   

If someone is living in a home illegally - how is it the utilities "fault"?
If anything the owner of record should be the responsible party after getting 3 notices.


LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The state wants utilities to discuss potential changes to the way they handle service shutoffs after the death of a Detroit-area man. The Michigan Public Service Commission said Monday companies should submit ways to better reach elderly residents who are most at risk during a shutoff in extreme weather. The body of 69-year-old John Skelley was discovered in February in a Hazel Park home where natural gas service had been shut off. He died of hypothermia and other causes. Consumers Energy says it sent three notices before cutting service, but Skelley wasn't the customer of record and the utility was unaware he lived there. Vanessa Waters, a spokeswoman for DTE Energy, tells the Detroit Free Press (http://on.freep.com/1J1gQqT ) the company welcomes the chance to "review, learn and share best practices."

Nothing makes sense anymore, especially to someone that grew up in the 40's and 50's.

I don't get it.  3 things you absolutely need, heat water and light and no matter what, pay your damn bill.  It's part of being an adult.

That's the thing Side. Not a lot of people worry about it.
 I remember once when I must have been 10 or 12 my dad was hurt and couldn't work for couple months..  We would go to farmers fields and pick up corn the picker missed. An extra few bucks for the household I guess

Well, I worry about it and so does CL,  Maybe thats why our credit scores are so high.  I don't believe in 'owing' and not paying, especially for necessary services.  Like the people in Detroit appealing to the UN or whatever it was about their water being shut off for non-payment.  Guess what, water costs money to pipe in.  When I read that I thought to myself, you gotta be kidding....

Put a bucket out in the rain and catch some idiot.  Quit buying dope and pay your water bill....  Quit driving a fancy ride and pay your bills.....  You don't need all that body jewelery...  pay your bills first.

Where did common sense and fiscal responsibility go?  Not that I don't know, like the government is fiscally responsible....... not.

I was thinking after the news of the shootings in Charleston last night...  is the kid a racist or an Isis terrorist wannabe?    Same thing pretty much. 

 - and it didn't take long for the FBI to ID him so he was on someones list.
