Friday, January 22, 2021

Nearly 1 in 5 people charged in connection to the violent Jan. 6 raid on the U.S. Capitol has some form of a military history, according to an NPR analysis.

Immediate loss of military retirement and medical benefits should be an immediate consequence for these Seditionists.

In the past, Seditionists and Insurgents were stripped of all their possessions.

That would be a great start, and a potentially effective disincentive for the hate-based rabble, in their quest for the Big Boogaloo.

Oh whaaaa! And Blah blah blah. Are you threatening us? If you don't want to do the time then don't do the crime. Don't want to be "punished"? Don't commit sedition or insurrection. Your threats of continued terrorism don't scare us. Maybe I should "report" your threats. For your own safety.

If you participated in the insurrection or supported it in any way then you might as well turn yourself in and turn your cohorts in too if you want to reduce your "punishment ".

Because will be held accountable. The FBI is coming for you and I hope they throw the book at you and charge you with every crime you committed.

But meanwhile we are going for the rot at the top of the stinking fish and you get to watch us hold Trumpy accountable for his crimes.

Because no man is above the law.

#3 Boaz, that's the exact attitude that is tearing our country apart. The President, whoever he/she might be has a #1 priority to protect this Federal Republic w/strong Democratic ways by any means necessary. That's what Lincoln faced. He had to keep the US together as a Federal Republic at all costs. Eight hundred thousand to one million people were killed because of this Constitutional edict. A President has no choice. If states start making waves about seceding from the US, expect a can of whoop-ass to be opened this country hasn't seen in 160 years.

And what is this thing about "Liberals?" I've read enough of far-right Republican posts to know exactly what their problem is. It's unsolvable. It's going to take generations to weed the problem out. The Statue of Liberty says: "Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore." First it was only white Northern Europeans, then the Irish, then the Italians and Greeks, then the Eastern Europeans. Then, because of war, we took in Koreans, Vietnamese, Filipinos, and of course the Chinese and Japanese were allowed to come over to build the railroads. Whether any of us likes it or not, the United States is becoming a melting pot of people from all over the world. God help us if we ever elect a true Fascist as President along the likes of Mussolini or Hitler. That's what it sounds like you want. No debates, no committees, no trying t0 figure out the potential "ifs" in a piece of legislation. Just a dictatorial strong man. The 5 forms of government according to Socrates were in order of best to worst were: Aristocracy, Military Honor, Oligarchy/Plutocracy, Democracy, and Anarchy. He went on to say that all countries cycle through these five forms of government, usually generation after generation. We're primed and ready for Anarchy if we don't take care to step away from that ledge.

I've typed too much again. But I'm trying to learn to have a discussion without malice and simply use common sense and patience. So forgive me for another TL/DR post.

Everyone here knows this piece from Smedley Butler, but I'll reprint it:

"War is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small 'inside' group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes."

--Smedley Butler, USMC Major General, and two-time Medal of Honor recipient, Military Governor of Haiti

We need to extract ourselves from Afghanistan and Iraq so the losing side can process it. There is no cultural catharsis for the current spate of veterans to experience. No Rambo movies or fancy statues to the losing side.

Right now we have a military machine that hasn't won a war in 75 years and yet we boast of it being the best in the world. It's the perfect narcissist's playground where it's all boasting without the chops to prove it. Is it any surprise they would follow a loser who won't admit he lost?

At best the Gulf war ended in a stalemate just like North Korea... only more humiliating because even after a decade crippling economic sanctions and a month of "Shock and Awe" Hussein deposed and 18 years of occupation and still no cigar in Iraq We've mucked around there for 3 decades killing millions so stop lying about it.

I've mentioned before that I bartended at Yellowstone Lake in the Summer and Old Faithful in the winter for six years in the the 90s. Most of my friends that stuck around moved to Gardner, Livingston, Cooke City, Bozeman, and the places around there. Most working as tour guides, photographers, hospitality industry. A few made it to Missoula teaching at the university or working for the government. A few others migrated south to Jackson If I hadn't gotten together with my wife I'd still be out there. Of all those places Bozeman is the one that's changed the most, experiencing rapid growth. I was last there in 2016. If you say it had a weird vibe I'd say it's because Bozeman hasn't been able to settle in to a groove in decades. The town is a little schizo, with the constant rapid growth and a large transient population. Severity of the winters appeals to the weird folks too. If my wife divorces me and my daughter cuts ties that's where you'll find me, trying to turn Montana blue.

Cooke City is one of my favorite places in the US, or rather close to two of my favorite places. It's just south of the Boulder River canyon that heads up towards Gig Timber, and a half-hour's drive from Sunlight Basin.

It may have changed, but Cooke City was always interesting because you had a strange mix of local-ishers and Park tourists from all over the world. The locals were all armed. Even if you left your gun in the car, you kept the holster on. The tourists out of the park always appeared a bit nervous and not sure of what to make of all it.

Oh, and before the 2002 invasion, Cheney had created offshore registrations for all but 1 of 64 Halliburton subsidiaries to a single office in the Cayman Islands, meaning they didn't pay U.S. taxes on the billions they made off of U.S. taxpayers.

Then it's lucky the search for a vice president was headed by Cheney himself.

" We didn't "win" a goddam thing."
Sure we did. We won responsibility for a million dead Iraqi children. A bill that years later both Democrats and Republicans would argue was totally worth it. American exceptionalism at its finest.

Military do whatever they are told to.

Command does whatever they are paid to.

We kicked their --- across kuwait and ripped Iraq a new one before leaving.
You're moving the goal posts rather than admit America does win wars and the less dead the better.

And the grateful SAWEDIS rewarded us with 9/11.
Gulf 1 was a draw,like Korea. That's the best Republican Presidents can do.
Gulf2 ended up with handing Iraq to Iran. Again, aiding Iran is what Republican Presidents do-Reagan armed the mad ayatollahs,Bush1 defanged Iraq and Bush2 handed them Iraq.

The sad part of the whole Gulf 1 and 2 wars is Bush1 told Saddam it was okay to invade Kuwait-he just forgot to tell him to stick to taking the "black diamond" oilfields.

Biden's first round of executive orders show a deliberate intent on provoking conservatives.

As compared to tRump's entire legacy of doing whatever just to stick it to the "libs"? Yes Biden is erasing the last 4 years - as any right thinking person would do.Petty much what happened in Germany in 1945.

It did end with Iraq coming to the table and signing paperwork declaring the conflict over and they lost the entire country they had invaded and then some.

Sounds like Nixon and tRump's Peace with Honorable Mentions.

America was Victorious in the Gulf War.

I guess if you consider spending our blood and treasure to defend a couple of brutal monarchies supporting religious fanaticism and winning an attack on 9/11 a"victory".

27 February: President Bush announces that the Liberation of Kuwait has started and the cessation of hostilities will end that day at 04:00 GMT.
27 February: Coalition announces they have destroyed almost half of the all Iraqi divisions and 500,000 Iraqi troops has been taken as POWs.
28 February: President of the United States George H.W. Bush announces the ceasefire, declaring that Kuwait is free and the Iraqi Army is defeated.
28 February: Iraq announces that it will accept all UN resolutions.
1 March: A cease-fire plan is negotiated in Safwan, Iraq.
3 March: Iraq accepts the terms of a ceasefire from the U.N. Security Council.
11 April: Armistice is signed between the Coalition and Iraqi Army.

That's one massive victory.

Snoofy,

Not all conservatives think alike or are conservative for the same reasons.

Conservatives vary in what is important to them.

Different types of conservatives will strongly dislike one or more orders while other conservatives will dislike different ones.

All in all, it looks like Biden successfully found a good mix that is sure to stick in the craw of most conservatives for one reason other another.

That's about as much as I'm going to say. I'm not interested in supporting my opinion.

It is what it is.

Bravo Biden...."working towards a united America"

Ummm no moron.

It was predicted that governing by executive order would result in this sort of back and forth.

This whining about "revenge" and "provoking conservatives" is just the right being the spineless ------- we know them to be. Unity isn't "do what we want or we react violently" you f---ed up moron.

Because you can't.

But. I get what you're saying. Conservatives do not know why they hate Biden. They just do.

They've proven themselves to be sore losers.

Attacking the capitol building in hopes of overturning an election.

That's who today's conservatives are. A bunch of traitors to the nation.

Biden's greatest failure will be his attempts to work with Republicans.
