If McCain was a real hero he would resign now and let another Republican fill his spot. At least Ted Kennedy stayed faithful to his party until the end.
McCain's heroism is beyond question. What would his replacement in the senate be doing?

Re: Veteran's ID Card

I had problems when I tried to get a card and just gave up. I have a copy of my DD-214 on my phone, a drivers license with veteran, my ltc shows veteran. I have enough to get veteran discount if I want it. Why should we expect this government computer system to be better than any other government s...

Re: Veteran's ID Card

How do you have DEERS eligibility if you are not active duty, or retired? See Wikipedia at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Defense_Enrollment_Eligibility_Reporting_System With the expansion of base exchange online shopping privileges to all honorably discharged veterans beginning in 2017,[1] the DEER...

Veteran's ID Card

I'm just wondering about others' experience in obtaining a Veteran's ID Card. Apparently the VA is having problems satisfying a law passed in 2015 to make these available to vets starting in 2017. My application went from "Pending" last year to "cannot confirm service" recently. This status makes no...

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

I know for a fact we are better off with Trump than the other choice, but I have a question. What would we be saying if a democrat had one and their administration would have turned over like this one? It seems they either quit or get fired weekly if not daily. Ah, an interesting question from our ...

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

Trump decides to remove national security adviser, and others may follow - The Washington Post Don Jr. getting a divorce. Your fired says wife. I for one could never understand treating the pain of the children of others, as a joke. This as the children of that person, I never equated to the person...

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

Walking on the food in the hallways was pretty cool too. Supplies stored under floor grates? Sort of like a giant camper? :eek6 No, canned goods covering the decks wherever possible. Takes lots of food to feed submariners for extended cruises! Ah, so that's where all those darned cans I see when de...

Re: My Leftist Son....! ? !

Human beings are inherently lazy. Period. They only become industrious and productive if it beats the alternative. I've seen it mentioned many times about mankind being naturally lazy but still don't believe it. I think the problem is that we are too smart and require some motivation to get going. ...

Re: My Leftist Son....! ? !

It sounds like OP's son has been overly affected by the Florida shooting and with some faculty and/or peers. He's been away and gotten bomb blasted with a lot "weirdness" (as the OP calls it). He needs some time to settle down around home and think and talk some more. If I were the OP, I would not b...

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

MSM may create some "news" and exaggerate but colluding with Russia? Really??? Are we as gullible as the Russians seem to think? Do you have a Facebook or Twitter account ?? If so the answer should be obvious. Actually, the questions were rhetorical ones with the obvious answers being "no"... The w...

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

President Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen said Tuesday that he paid $130,000 of his own money to a porn star shortly before the presidential election. Of course the MSM is generating more fake news, claiming that the payment was on behalf of Trump, for Trump's affair with the porn star. MSM al...

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

Spealing of paradoxes... Imagine that a farmer has a sack containing 100 lbs of potatoes. The potatoes, he discovers, are comprised of 99% water and 1% solids, so he leaves them in the heat of the sun for a day to let the amount of water in them reduce to 98%. But when he returns to them the day aft...

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

How about these "intelligence" committee memos? Duh... Congress can't work across the aisle or across town (FBI/DOJ) and Kelly does not seem to be helping the cause. Can things get any worse in DC???

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

Do we still have a "democratic system of checks and balances"???

Or, are the legislative and executive branches ganging up on the judicial?
