    As a first generation American..

    Where exactly in this article does it state that any North Carolina Republican admitted to suppressing any Black vote?

    The Congressional Thread

    Do you consider claims made at an event sponsored by Move On, by a sitting member of the House of Representative that “…we're gonna go in there and we're going to impeach the motherf****r…” incongruent with our rule of law and constitutional rights as well?

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    As has be posted here many times, tone and intent are sometimes difficult to determine from a written statement. Just as my post came across as “combative and rude," which was not my intent, your post came across as I’ll informed and condescending. Which after reading your response to my post, I see was not your intent. Strikes colors and withdraws from field of battle.

    The President Donald Trump Thread

    Not my intent to be either combative or rude, and if you took the tone of my post as either, I apologize. As for life in the military. While on duty or in uniform at all times, either on or off duty, all branches of the service have specific rules of conduct and regulations to be followed. And while some of them might seem overly strict or somewhat onerous, there are valid reasons when you consider the mission of, and unique requirements of military service. Off duty, aside from the fact that some areas are more strictly enforced (e.g., drug and alcohol abuse) service members engage in most of the activities enjoyed by their non-military contemporaries. As to “specific regulations” addressing lawn maintenance and appearance, this can be true. However, this is no different from the rules and regulations issued by many home owners associations or rental communities; some of which are enforced as vigorously, or more so than those on base. As far as color of curtains that can be displayed, I’ve never encountered this in regards to family housing. For single military personal living in the barracks the regulations are somewhat more strict, but in 8 years of barracks living while on active duty I never encountered any that I found particularly unreasonable.

    Yes, I do have a specific disagreement. And no, prior service in the military is not necessarily a requisite for having knowledge of the service. If you are discussing equipment, the budget, operational matters, deployment, or many of the many similar categories, then no, prior service is not required. However, you wrote very specific comment that ex military were “accustomed to living in communities completely controlled by someone else, where they are afforded very few choices in external appearances or conduct.” This implies some knowledge of a military lifestyle, and I was curious as to what you based this opinion on. Especially considering that it isn’t reflective of my 20 years in the Marine Corps.

    And you base this conclusion on how many years of active duty military service?
