  1. SMS Scharnhorst, from WWI, not KMS Scharnhorst, from WWII
  2. But everyone knows black guns are E-V-I-L!!!!
  3. So, is the claim that having the Army / Navy / Air Force / Marine logo on the reverse side acts as a tacit endorsement of said religious faith? That is a stretch in my book. As was previously pointed out, ID tags already list the religious affiliation, or lack thereof, of choice. How does allowing a tag with the military logo and verse go beyond that? Oh, wait, I'm expecting reason and a bit of common sense out of them. Never mind.
  4. I'm trying to figure this one out. So, they're shaped like a dog tag, and service members put them on the same chain as their issued ID tags? The article leaves a bit to be desired, but unless the military is asserting the service members cannot wear them on the same chain as their official ID tags, I'm trying to understand how this runs afoul of AR 670-1 and comparable regs elsewhere. Even if they are place on the same chain as the ID tags, I don't understand the problem. The Army regs have long allowed members to wear religious jewelry, so long as it is "neat, conservative and discreet." https://www.armystudyguide.com/content/Prep_For_Basic_Training/Prep_for_basic_uniforms/religious-items.shtml IF and that is a BIG if, a commanding officer purchased them for their entire unit and insisted they be worn, that is one thing, and would be an issue for an IG complaint, but that is not what I am reading here. Weinstein and the MRFF (Boy, can I think up some optional meanings for those initials) have gone out of their way to create havoc. This one seems over the top, if a service member can no longer voluntarily wear something of religious significance to them, purchased by them with their own funds. To quote Thomas Jefferson, "But it does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods, or no God. It neither picks my pocket, nor breaks my leg."
  5. It appears you can't receive messages.
  6. It's only fair it has swung back the Buckeyes' way. John Cooper went 2-10-1 one against the team up north, including losing to an unranked team when a national title was being talked about. The rivalry has deep roots though. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toledo_War
  7. https://www.stripes.com/news/us/students-want-washington-and-lee-diplomas-without-portraits-of-washington-and-lee-1.609126?fbclid=IwAR3bkHg-KLirZmbsqQeIvvrAIjwd0VKPxY-qEpQE3tylqzauzDHR2QxrqUQ I've read this, I'm posting this, and I'm still in disbelief. It makes me truly question the critical thinking capacity of some who should be expert in that skill. When I read the headline to Mrs. Doc, her first response was "Is that from duffleblog or something?"
  8. That darn Volkswagen he passes half a dozen times.
  9. If you feed, love, care for and shelter a dog, it will think you are a god. If you feed, love, care for and shelter a cat, it will think it is a god.
  10. My youngest daughter is a vegetarian, not vegan. However, she doesn't judge or comment. I believe if she had a vegan friend, she would warn them ahead of time that to comment in judgment would bring ridicule, abuse and more in that friend's direction. Possibly with comment about the years we had pheasant I hunted for Thanksgiving instead of turkey, complete with discussion about the "ringing of the neck."
  11. Yep. Still can't explain her marrying me except "insanity" though.
  12. Probably WAY far behind, but still beating all of those who didn't get out of their seats and try! You want to see slow times, though, look at my scores at a CAS match! Seriously, I was in the "back of the middle" at that race, and didn't do particularly well. But, hey, do I look like I'm built like a runner? My daughter jokes that I'm built like a linebacker, but I run because "the heck with genetics." I hadn't trained as much as I would like, and my daughter kept insisting on running over flat terrain when we did. We entered that one on a whim (nice technical fabric long sleeve tees and a finisher's medal). There were a couple of brutal hills on that course, which is a couple of miles from the highest point in Ohio. They got my attention and ruined any thoughts of a good finishing time. But, I did it.
