How History will View Obama
« on: January 14, 2015, 02:15:08 PM »
Worth a read. Many different opinions represented, both good and bad

http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2015/01/obamas-legacy-chait.html
Should one a man of wisdom meet
who points out faults and gives reproof,
who lays a hidden treasure bare,
with such a sage should one consort.
Consorting so is one enriched
and never in decline.

The only good , rightful and proper place for owebuma and his ilk is the trash heap of history.
There were only two options for gender. At last count there are at least 12, according to libs. By that standard, I'm a male lesbian.

It will be written by liberal professors from HAA-vard.

But, under the name of ‘liberalism’, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.” - Norman Thomas, U.S. Socialist Party presidential candidate 1940, 1944 and 1948

I hope it will include how much he is despised by members of the U.S. Military.

Yep.  Of course they will be so busy jacking off while they write their paeans to his greatness that it should at least slow down their output of apologia and tributes.

Older Marines often talk about how things were in "the old Corps".

Things have changed so much I don't know how present day Marines can even relate to those who fought
in the 40's (those were the Marines pointed out to us while in boot camp (1960's)).

My DI's (1960's) would have been subject to a general court-martial for their "non-politically-correct"
behavior and speech if they lived under today's "rules".

Well, exactly 50 years ago this month, the drill instructors welcomed me to Parris Island with cake and tea. Nicest bunch you would ever want to meet.

BTW: I've got 7 miles of post hole I need to sale.....can cut it to any lengths you need.

I might be interested.  Would you be willing to trade for a few yards of flight line or perhaps 5 gallons of prop wash?

Then you know I was joking. I didn't think the food was to bad. The only thing I can complain about was egg shells in the eggs...crunch....crunch. I can't stand that.
