Prove it.
Prove that I'm an officer?
Um okay. I guess.
What do you want this old fart to do? Scan my D214? A copy of my LES?
Some weasel outed me yesterday with my damned cell phone number and APO address.

What do you want?

Fracking blood tests?

AND, the dividends aren't just for tax payers..erms [edit here] a better way to say it is workers, not jusst for workers, but when the dividend top the legal amount the children are required to pay their taxes on the dividend and file a return to the IRS.... every man, woman and child gets a dividend....amazing huh??

Only requirement, you have to be born by a certain date to get it the first yr of life. Or, live here two yrs if you move here to live. OH and be an American Citizen


if you want your *fair share* come to Alaska and collect some.... only takes a couple yrs

YES...any baby born by a certain date qualifies when still and infant

Hmmmm...Common sense. Whodathunk?

Been going to the OWSCleveland rallies and they look nothing like the ones in New York. Very peaceful and mellow. Tea Partiers, Anachrists, stoners, Unions all together. Color me amazed!

But the message is still muddled.

A simple picture in your dress uniform, with a sign that says "hello ATS I'm Beezer" would suffice, and would be fun!

You told me your profession already. You're not an old fart either.

Who the flip did THAT!

If he's a Soldier, that is a violation of OPSEC.

Stalin was a tyrant, that wasn't communism. It was a communist state that fell to an evil tyrant, and devolved into a dictatorship. Which is the most pointed out flaw to communism.

..........Leninism,Marxism,Stalinism,Maoism,Marxism all fall under the same Socialistic Utopia you claim works.
Hell,add Jim Jonesism,who preached Communism in his church!! (Look at what happened to his followers too.)
It has failed because in the end,the man at the top of the pyramid has TOO much power. Someone has to be "LEADER". You can add fascism to the mix also.(See Hitler and Mussolini)

I remember Moscow bread lines............................
I remember people destroying the Berlin Wall.........
I see Chinese people being sent to jail for years,because they speak out about their Government,No protesting,just an email.
I see North Koreans still dying..............................



Cult of Personality,mixed with Power, kills. That is the fact you cant face,nor want to see. Millions dead,but you dont care as long as the Utopian dream of collective mentality is alive. Everything should be free of charge.Everyone is equal,even if their skills are not.Anyone with more,should be penalized. If the youth today feel this is what they want for the USA,God help us.................

When a Soldier says old fart...chances are he/she is in their thirties or early forties. Still young but beat up nonetheless.

A Servicemember who , for lack of a better word outs him or herself, subjects themselves to other possible outcomes other than what is on ATS. It's called OPSEC. Operational security. Violating that is not a good thing. It can be construed as a violation of the UCMJ.

I am assuming that your avatar is you, if so, cool. You're upfront.

But by posting on ATS there are members here, whether you agree with them or not, who's livelyhood depends upon anonymity. Until they retire at least. But that isn’t to say they don’t have their opinions in the meantime.

Stop questioning the guy and question his views. If perchance, personal feelings, regardless of which side were hurt…move on.

Breathe deep.

I questioned his views a few pages ago. He seems to think that anyone not in the upper 1% of wealth is lazy. He did not acknowledge my post.

I've been bouncing back and forth between the pages trying to update myself as to the debate. It is...bewildering.


But I have recommended even as a FNG (Flippin' New Guy) many times to others to try to debate the OP. I myself have been slapped by the Admins for getting outta hand.

I like this site and I enjoy debating people...sometimes even you.
But I try to stay on topic. It's how I learn. I don't know all nor see all. I've lost the connection on my crystal ball.

Your focusing on the bad actions taken by communists.

If you focus on the US killing the Native Americans you would probably walk away with just as negative view. I know the numbers don't compare but I'm sure they would have killed as many as they had to to claim the land.

I said that communism has some good aspects that may help our democracy, and everyone went ballistic. Remind me not to use the "C" word on ATS ever again.

I'm also a vet but I don't feel the need to tout my service as some sort of exceptional "inside" knowledge into the workings of the world like a lot of vets here on ATS do.

An opinion is just an opinion regardless of service in the military, Phd, street cred, or "my mommy told me"...

and I'm really getting tired of the "people like you" phrase used to describe those you disagree with by trying to marginalize or discredit them.

Well, history shows us that while the theory is good.

The reality sucks. Humans always screw things up. Can't get them to agree on anything.

I understand your confusion. You weren't there but it does remind me very much of the time my brand new father in law....younger liberal man told my father, old WWII vet that mopped up Normandy that, "Hitler coulda won the war!"

yep...pretty similar dealie

Best of luck getting an honest estimate on that number btw. They don't know how many! It's not like they had social security numbers. They killed a great many of them, that's all we need to know.
