Jack, thanks for your suggestion. I am not a blog writer, haven't wrote any paper since SNCO school in the 70's. I will check with MI Open Carry Assoc. for an update. You are a good blog writer, so this might be a good story for you.
Thanks you for including me in among your friends.
My comment about not knowing what my Pakastini doctor was talking about was tongue in cheek. He speaks broken English, and I'm hard of hearing. His nurse is a go-between.
There's a bit of wry humor, for Obamacare caused my doctor of many years to give up his practice. Believe me I had a heck of a time finding any doctor who "didn't already have their quota of medicare patients." That's why I wind up with a foreign doctor. I just pray he has respect for women; he's a Moslem.
This country is so messed up by this Chicago mob. I can't believe I have to live the remainder of my life like this.
I think I'd like to give the article a try after the election...my basic idea is a Swiss-style system...I think that tiered reserve, coupled with reasonable equipment expenditures, relocation & re-sizing of overseas forces to places that will let us protect sea lane choke points & defend regional threat areas -- and not simply pump money into host nation economies -- will give us the flexibility we need...a deep, deep 'bench' and the cultural involvement to fully support defense of our real international interests.
We have the territories and possessions that will enable us to forward-assign properly structured units where they can defend sea lane choke points and provide regional quick reaction forces to assist key allies & friendly nations without having to station them in host nations...Korea, Japan, and Western Europe don't need garrisoned troops there anymore but we need to keep flexible, fully capable forces near those areas to keep the Oriental Russians and Chinese in line in the Pacific; and the Russians-Muslim expansionists at-bay in the West.
So my thinking goes a bit further than just the initial issue I tried to discuss...you see my dilemma, I think...if I write about this stuff I'll end up getting into lots of weeds...the kind of stuff that makes most people's eyes glaze-over.
Jack...I know all of those sites well...read them every day or nearly every day...let me think about it...I'm not keen on 'publishing' these days...more or less burned out...and I'm very busy with the Alabama Republican Party's campaign operations...I'm Vice-Chair of our county Executive Committee and am working for several statewide campaigns...
Like I said, I'm old and beat up...only have so much energy...but if I do write the piece A-T will get it first...I really enjoy that site.
Thank you so much for the add!! It's great to have so many Patriot friends in one great place. :) It's nice to be able to have a good chat about how great America is and how annoying liberals are with out being attacked lol. I have alway's enjoyed reading your comments, I have learned a great deal about Politics and how this country is run because of people like you. :) God Bless America.
Jack, I am in Mississippi. The state Tea Party and local groups in the last election changed tjhe Democrate control from 140 years since Reconstruction to a Republican House, Senate, and State offices.
Jack - - Your article "Walmart NY, Tar & Feathers in Aisle Six" has great points that stimulat deep thoughts on economics. However, Blogs inhibit converstion threads from being easily followed. I sure wish you had used a Discussion Forum instead. - Dave
