    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    Sounds like a lot of butt kicking going to be happening. This Jarhead will mention a few kind words of correction due to the fact that I'm armed and getting to old for a good romp. I agree a good whooping is what is needed starting at a young age.

    Right, though members of the military need to keep in mind that their job is to serve the Constitution, not the President. The President may only give orders that do not conflict with the Constitution (and thus Constitutionally valid laws, as the President "must take care that the laws are faithfully executed"). I hope that all members of the military do their duty and read and understand the Constitution!

    We don't (or in my case didn't) serve the Constitution. We "serve" the people of the United States. The Constitution is just a piece of paper with words written on it. We swore an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution, but we serve (served) "The People" that document was meant to protect. We serve "The People" by obeying the orders of their elected representatives, meaning the President that they elected. It is not a grunts job to understand or interpret the Constitution. That job is the duty of the Supreme Court.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    Wrong!

    That makes me want to ask if you were in the Military? (If not, refer to rule #4 above) The quote below is the oath I took, the highlighting is mine.

    I, (NAME), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.

    atctimmy, I have to disagree on one point you wrote, and it may just be how I interpreted it. Personnel in the military also have their vote for the elected officials. I hope that I just misunderstood your posting. Military personnel should use their vote powers too, I know I vote!

    my apologies if I read your post wrong.

    Great advice for a CCW forum. Maybe all the members can get their permits revoked for "kicking some ass".

    Real cute.

    Perhaps I'm mistaken, but it seems to be humor posted in the "humor" area, not advice.

    I thought it was funny, I also sent it on to many prior military buddies of mine, they thought it was funny too.
