    Military Times Subscriber?

    About two years ago I decided not to renew my subscription because I realized that there was nothing that important for the MT to report that wasn't soon going to be discussed, clarified and verified through several other official and unofficial sources, all of which are free.

    Also, as a reminder of why I don't pay for MT is when I peeked at a co-worker's copy and noticed the attention-grabbing cover story about 59 companies hiring vets. When I looked at the actual list I saw Wallmart, banks and other companies topping the list, all of which are more than happy to pay you at or near minimum wage.

    Any of you want to share reasons why you subscribe or not subscribe? I feel like it's a waste of my money.

    I get it for free because I sent them a very flattering letter telling them how much I enjoyed reading their paper and how it is the highlight of my week.

    They seemed so happy to receive such high praise that they gave me a lifetime subscription, a two week vacation to Disney World, and one of those dumb Coin Knives they sell at the bottom of the main website.

    I've been a reader, purchaser and subscriber for over 53 years and am rewarded by earlier than newsstand delivery of my e-edition, and all you lovely neighbors' comments on those Times subjects before I get off my arse to read them.

    It's the same in all wars, the very young and adventurous give up their lives for the old and cautious, and so the bluecollar for the privileged, the uneducated for the student, the poor for the well off, the patriot for the politician, and the few for the many.

    I stopped my subscription when the publication start migrating towards a left-wing agenda and instituted opinionated journalism. Not for me anymore.

    Do not mean to thread jack but I been trying to get this message out and even tried to open a new thread and it does not take.

    Admin/Moderator,
    Upon logging in with my normal Misterben account and changing my e-mail address, I was then never able to respond to posts and received this message
    MisterBen, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:
    1.Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
    2.If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.

    This was about two weeks ago. I tried messaging everyone to fix this but no dice. Can someone fix??
