  1. Apparently Captain Emily Rainey had already been in trouble and had resigned her commission, but it has not become effective yet. She received a letter or reprimand and maybe more for removing police tape around a playground because of Covid-19 restrictions. She recognized that her career was over. In the Army if an officer is passed over for promotion twice, they are discharged. Be interesting if Army tries to do anything else to her. https://www.stripes.com/news/us/fort-bragg-captain-questioned-over-attendance-at-rally-before-capitol-siege-resigned-commission-last-year-officials-s
  2. It was never really Trump first, but rather the Republican Party first linked with their personal political futures. It still is. 14th Amendment, Sec. 3: "No Person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, s
  3. Didn't know whether to use the sad or laugh emoji.
  4. While I understand your thinking, it is unfortunate when anyone dies when they should not have. But, as you say, she and the others should have known what could happen. Personally, I believe more people should have been shot. I hope the FBI, et. al. are investigating them for criminal activities. I hope the House brings impeachment charges against them after Jan. 20 or expelled. NO censure or other wishy-washy action. Get them out of government! Assume all three are in the House? She should have been denied entrance until she was cleared of having any weapons. This rule
  5. A very good Robert Mitchum and Jane Russell movie, Jan 12 at 12 Noon ET.
  6. Ivanka has a "political career?" I don't think being placed in a made-up job by your father for four years counts as a political career.
  7. Actually a bit of hypocrisy on their part. Not only distancing from Trump, but other Republicans, such as Hawley, etc. They knew what kind of people these were, but didn't care as long as it served their interests. Just as manufacturers, businesses and financial organizations backed Hitler.
  8. "Kayla Joyce, 29, who said she is the mutual live-in girlfriend of Babbitt and her husband, Aaron." Mutual live-in girlfriend is a new one to me. Interesting article though. Hallmark definitively has some of the worst movies made. The actors all look the same, act the same, say the same dialogue, etc. The settings are way too similar. Several years ago, David Baldacci wrote a nice little book, The Christmas Train, which was sort of a rom-com with a little mystery situation. I thought it would make a good movie. Unfortunately Hallmark made the movie or someone made it for th
  9. Read the book 45 or so years ago, but do not remember it that well. Incidentally, Lords of Discipline is another book/movie based on the author's experiences (and a good deal of imagination) at The Citadel.
  10. Made the front page of the local daily paper. Graham's local daily paper.
  11. Tell us how you really feel.😊 About time that state, local and federal government recognized these people for what they are - domestic terrorists. Need to go after them the same way the Feds went after the Klan.
  12. All during the controversy over votes in GA, both said they supported Trump, they voted for Trump and they wished he had won. They are like too many people in this country. They will vote for ANY Republican. Of course, the somewhat good news is that they resisted Trump when he challenged them on their job performance.
  13. Unfortunately he is probably correct. He may never receive any punishment. Hope to hell I am wrong though.
  14. Article lists the people on the MI Redistricting Panel. Ironically all the "independents" are white, except for one Middle Eastern. 5 independents and four each Republican and Democrat. All Republicans are white as are two Democrats. Lot of people I know in S.C. like to say they are "independent," but they all have voted Republican their entire lives. https://www.freep.com/story/news/politics/2020/08/17/michigan-redistricting-panel-gerrymandering/5598998002/
  15. Let's hope they are really successful and that other state's adopt the model if it truly works. But, I doubt many state's will.
  16. The reports of conservatism's death are greatly exaggerated. As the election of 2020 showed, it is still very powerful in this country. Trump will pass, but conservatism will not.
  17. More importantly, he and his brother and all associates and their foundations and groups should immediately send $billions to Dem National Committee.
  18. Supposedly one of the characters was gay. Not sure there was a hidden meaning. I can say that while the overall theme of the movie was implausible to me, the details were very correct for The Citadel. I graduated from there.
  19. The Strange One (1957) with Ben Gazzara was on the other night-late. Did anyone watch it or previously seen it? Calder Willingham based the screenplay on his book End As A Man, based primarily on his experiences as a cadet at The Citadel, which he left after completing his freshman year. He became a screenwriter in Hollywood and wrote many screenplays.
  20. OK, thanks. I think y'all were discussing some woman and I couldn't find out who. Who were you discussing?
  21. Most people don't realize that Eisenhower was the first president to draw a pension.
  22. The officers should have began firing their weapons as soon as the Trump insurrectionists crossed the first barrier, no later than when they were on the steps of the buildings.
