About Me

Born June 1943. Disabled veteran.

Journal Archives

I enlisted May 31, 1963

I did not receive my Top Secret Codeword clearance until a full background check was finished. That was Oct. 1964, 15 months. I did not know that all my military records were flagged until I sent for my records and all I received was a single page document stating that do to my having access to special intelligence all training, work and posts were flagged.

He thinks that a holy war

6 hours a day

5 days a week for 47 weeks. No English after the first day. UC Berkeley gave me 23 credits for it.. And militarily I found it very useful.

No strong third party

until the Constitution is changed. Now it reads that if no one get at least half of the electoral college votes it goes to Congress, there isn't a runoff election. The House votes for President, one vote per state and the Senate votes for vice-President. If the House can not get a 50% vote for any candidate then the Speaker of the House is acting President up to four years when there is another election. Neither party will vote to change the Constitution on the electing of the President.

I don't think so.

Russian language course at the Defense Language Institute at the Presidio of Monterey the day we studied that type of language it didn't come up. Of course that was 54 years ago so I may have forgotten.

I'm sorry but this is how my mind works.

Will he campaign for him after the election?

Maybe not an accident?

The police should do a complete file on both people and see if there is a connection besides being neighbors.

The rift began Jun 8, 1967

when Israeli air force and navy purposely attacked the USS Liberty in international water because they thought that the naval personnel had a specific MOS and they didn't. Even if they had, that is no excuse to try to sink an ally's ship.

We are on the side of the rebels.

And if they win, it will be another Iraq. Saddam was a despot who killed his own people and Assad is a a despot who kills his own people. Okay I'm a bastard, but I would rather they kill their own people than the rebel terrorists kill us.

I live near Camp LeJeune and if they wouldn't let the troops drink at all, many restaurants and bars would close. I am not suggesting they get wasted, but they do like a couple of beers with dinner.
