Re: “Teachin' and Packin'

The flaw in your logic. Thinking the law preventing said BF from bringing a gun on campus will also prevent her murder. What MIGHT prevent her murder is someone that can protect her with a lawfully concealed firearm. Murder is already against the law. Gun free zones do not work as they only disarm those they obey laws.

Re: “Why I Ran

War_resister...here are a few things to chew one.When some claim that President Bush shouldn't have started this war, state the following: a. FDR led us into World War II. b. Germany never attacked us; Japan did. From 1941-1945, 450,000 lives were lost ... an average of 112,500 per year. c. Truman finished that war and started one in Korea. North Korea never attacked us.. From 1950-1953, 55,000 lives were lost ... an average of 18,334 per year. d John F. Kennedy started the Vietnam conflict in 1962. Vietnam never attacked us. e. Johnson turned Vietnam into a quagmire. From 1965-1975, 58,000 lives were lost, an average of 5,800 per year. f. Clinton went to war in Bosnia without UN or French consent. Bosnia never attacked us. He was offered Osama bin Laden's head on a platter three times by Sudan and did nothing. Osama has attacked us on multiple occasions. g. In the years since terrorists attacked us , President Bush has liberated two countries, crushed the Taliban, crippled al-Qaida, put nuclear inspectors in Libya, Iran, and, North Korea without firing a shot, and captured a terrorist who slaughtered 300,000 of his own people.

Re: “Why I Ran

You are a tool if you believe that napalm and W.P. are chemical weapons. By the definitions I've seen for these so called chemical weapons, spilling a Coca-Cola on someone would be a chemical attack. Also I don't believe that the US is indiscriminately killing people. You have proof of that? From more than one source? I served and would go again in heartbeat. This idiot wasn't drafted...HE SIGNED UP! If this guy wanted a job with steady pay, mediacl benefits and a chance to go to college, he could've applied at a thousand different places. HE choose to serve and then violated his oath by running like a chicken when if came time to actually serve. Now someone elses son or daughter will have to go in his cowardly place.

No defensive basis? Like all the Iraqi people that were tortures and killed for decades under Saddam's regime? Like the Kurds who were nerve gassed under Saddam's regime? Like the Iraqi soccer team that was beaten by Saddams sons because they didn't win a medal? Whatever. If you didn't want to go, don't enlist! How simple is that?

Re: “Why I Ran

He didn't have to go. If the First Sgt. "denied' him the form he should kept going up the chain. They can't deny you a form. "Are you willing to go to prison for your decision if it comes to that?" His response: "Yeah, if it came down to that, I'd be willing to go to prison because I know I did the right thing and I can sleep at night and my conscience is still good." Uhhh, doofus, if he was willing to go to prison for his "beliefs", why did he run away? The simple answer is he's a coward, plain and simple. He had the chance to stand up and voice his opinion, and possibly take the lumps for his "courage and conviction", but he ran away like a common thief. He disgusts me, and, if I were a family member, I would bring him back home to face the music.

Re: “Why I Ran

Robin Long enlisted in the United States Army seeking a job with steady pay, medical benefits and a chance to go to college. Two years later he ran like a coward with no intentions of fulfilling the solemn oath he took. He 'mature' act ( his own words) was to flee the country he grew up in, instead of fighting it through proper channels. When the going got tough, he folded. "But I just wanted some college money! Who knew the Army would want me to fight?" He ran because he is a coward,he thought up all of the excuses afterwards.
