    It is fun to have discussions like that. The problem is that there aren't any threads anymore that don't devolve into a Rainmaker/Mikekerrii back and forth about nothing.

    I Remember The good old days Old salt!.....Actually my life's dream has been to run off every last poster on this forum and then turn it into my own personal blog..... With Sandjames out of the way, You and Mike (and a couple Moderators) are all that's standing between my destroying the Military Times Forums and realizing this sinister goal.

    Apparently I really am that good!

    So, the FBI can't hack an IPhone?? Yeah, Right. And When has that Butt Pirate Tim Cook ever turned down a Backdoor?..... That faggot should be thrown jail.

    Anyway, This whole thing is total Bullshit. They want the Sheeples thinking that their Idiot Phones are "secure".

    Plus Apple makes shit products and now that the free Fed Money spigot is going to get turned off, risk free speculation is getting out of the market and The Stock is gonna be plummeting and they think this will help with sales

    In some ways I would agree. I don't think most are politically indoctrinated one way or the other. I have a pretty divergent set of political ideas (in some areas I am fairly progressive/liberal and in others lean very conservative.) For me (personally) it is more based on an issue to issue stance vice the 'platform'.

    Yes, on active duty we have to be mindful of what we say, that said, the anonymity of an internet forum is a good thing.

    I will admit, I grow tired of the back and forth here since it is more like venting than anything else. I don't think you will be changing @MikeKerriii's mind anymore than I think he will change @Rainmaker's ... it kind of devolves into:



    Once it gets into the silly back and forth, the personal insults ensue and it generally is not a conversation I personally want to participate in ... no offense ... just not my thing. Then I end up feeling like:

    The most important six inches on the battlefield ... is between your ears.

    So, you're just going to stand there and let him make a mockery of your authority by insulting 1/3rd of the remaining members of the forum with impunity like that??!!

    And I'm such a friendly guy..... that, I just don't see why sandsjames keeps criticizing me...Because, Unlike some people we know (absinthe anecdote)....Rainmaker never made fun of him for his inability to get promoted or even pass a basic PT test or for teaching teenage girls how to fix MEP 5's for a living and as you know (from reading my IPhone), When they used to PM me telling me what a Homo he was, It was me who always stuck up for him!

    Besides, I worked extra hard last year (to support the tax payer subsidized life style, he enjoys) and when he was off finding himself (by reading poetry and listening to Enya and whatever else he was doing to turn himself into the giant douchebag that he's become) Rainmaker was here 'putting on the whole armor of God' & single handedly defending Western Christendom from those Leftist agitprop Hasbara troll attacks alone..... And now that the hard work is done and the menace is gone, this is the thanks I get from that ingrate? Unfortunately, I guess the saying is true..... No good deed goes unpunished. Nomsayin Commander?

    It was the only part of the conversion dealing with fact not opinion.

    Rainmaker, Mjolnir is too busy doing important stuff to be reading your IPhone.

    That being said, stop ordering artillery rounds for your 105s, at the compound. Ordering from an IPhone, using Amazon is a bit nonsecure.

    A word to the wise is sufficient.

    Speaking of which, hey @Rainmaker, the bill for the water purifier for the bunker came in. I was going to charge it but the damn thing cost 300k. You sure you really want this? I could have gotten it for $300 if I knew ahead of time. You really need to get to updating that inventory list. Or are you too busy waiting on your hero "The Donald" to pay for all this junk? Seriously, what do we need a purifier that can make espresso at the flip of a switch for?
    Efficiency through redundancy is a contradiction in terms.

    Attrition is not an effective means of combat.

    “The problem with defending the purity of the English language is that English is about as pure as a cribhouse whore. We don’t just borrow words; on occasion, English has pursued other languages down alleyways to beat them unconscious and riffle their pockets for new vocabulary.” – James Nicoll
