Indeed, history has taught us not to agree with each other on such matters.
I read an attack the other day where they talked about how SF exercises in Texas were secretly a cover for deposing the Texas governor or something along those lines. It was ridiculous in the funniest way.
Lol, you aren't counting down to the Olympics again, are you? That was what I call a great series. Great bounces with great endings. ;)
Oh, that falls in with how military and police personnel are training for an upcoming event where they will disarm the populace of Texas. They didn't list cities. They just said Texas.
And I just now noticed I was autocorrected to "attack" instead of "article".
The Olympics are always a treat to watch. I mean, did you see the Women's hockey final? We came so so close to taking back the gold from you all.
Yes you did and if it had of gone in Canadians everywhere would have been super pissed at the ref for interference. Like he didn't see the play coming straight at him. Get out of the way, dumbass!
Ah, gotta love hockey refs. They're the best of any sports officials, that they are. They also make a not so insubstantial salary as well.
What I find intriguing about the whole depicting Mohamed in a cartoon being offensive is nobody cared about it until earlier this century. South Park did it and made no apologies for it. Perhaps it was because he was depicted as some kind of hero? Who knows.
I never had the pleasure of conducting cooperative exercises with Canadian troops, met some in passing, but not for training or real world operations. I have, however, worked with soldiers from Japan, Thailand, and Korea. Can't say I ever heard of any conspiracies about that, but that doesn't mean they don't exist.
*facepalm* Oh that Texas governor certainly had quite a claim going on there. Once again, interesting fiction and the videos that covered it used the drowning tactic. "Here's a bunch of information. Here's a bunch more, although it is not really all that related. How about some more? We heard you like information, so here's some information, about the information that discusses the information....Half Life 3 confirmed!" Ah, it's the simple things in life.
I've never really stopped to consider what refs would make. Being as it's the Olympics, I imagine it's better than minimum wage.
I stop on occasion to think of the people I've known over the years that are extreme right wing in the politics which govern the way they view and address the rest of the world and I'm sickened that I didn't get away from them fast enough. Live and learn. I too had a time where for years I looked upon certain entire cultures as monsters. It wasn't until my Wife brought up how wrong and disgusting it was that I even took notice. People everywhere no matter where they are from on this planet want the exact same thing; their children to be healthy and happy.
It was interesting during the late 80s. Once on a joint Winter exercise, your troops forgot to bring their Winter whites and had to borrow ours. That's okay, we topped that by going to Afghanistan at the beginning dressed in green. We also went through the Balkans during the 90s dressed as the poor kids on the UN block without the hardware and equipment everyone else had, stormed the airfield in Sarajevo in 92 and had to battle Croats in Medak in 93 dressed like a bunch of rejects from the Vietnam war and that's just two separate incidents. Horrible. Still, got the job done. Quieted that noise.
I don't generally speak much of my service but I had some great American and British friends. It might have been providence but I'd see familiar faces most places I went and always gloated the same spiel. "You guys are here to be properly educated on how to do the exact same job with half the equipment and none of the intel. In short, your superiors feel that you need to be shown how to do more with less."
Up close, we recognise that we're all one and the same. It's just that some parents know how to dress their kids. It took the SNAFU of our deployment to Afghanistan before Canada opened the wallet. Now we look like makeshift Robocops too!
You mean they really considered it?
I came across the news story a couple of times, but here is a different one from Gawker...
Governor Vows to Defend Texas Against Insane Imaginary Obama Invasion
Lol, so training exercises can't be held anywhere apparently without people going overboard. And to think, those two women I'd mentioned earlier thought Facebook had some nerve referring to their channels as "fake news sources". One of their favourite subjects, Jade Helm and how Texas will be the first victim to be "brought under control".
I don't want to sound as though I have a great deal against these people, they're unaware and enjoy jumping to conclusions towards connecting dots to support their own theories. Everyone posting videos to YouTube in my opinion tend to be glory hounds to some extent. Especially when the beginning of each video tends to be all about their name. That makes me wonder just how much they're into the material they're reporting over how much they want us to be into the people reporting it.
Some are great! Fair and impartial. However, some call themselves reporters when in reality what they are is a cheerleader for one particular side. That's not news if you ask me though look how many "legitimate and credible" news sources do the exact same thing.
I just love it when I'm called upstairs due to some emergency just to find out that a spider dared to crawl across my Niece's screen and needs to be hunted down and destroyed. We spent ten minutes looking for a harmless creature that wants nothing to do with us and was probably long gone by the time I reached the scene. She freaks right out when I pick them up to show her how harmless they are. Well, the ones we have here anyway. Hopefully, she sleeps tonight.
This guy makes me laugh though he probably makes other people angry. Oh well, he makes me laugh.
