    fully 30 percent of those who have the requisite high school diploma or GED equivalent fail to pass the Armed Forces Qualification Test
    How about a “three strikes” rule. If three of a school’s graduates in any year fail the AFQT, shut the school down.

    to crack down on lobbyists sounds almost sensible
    Except I have a feeling her definition of “corporation” will particularly include PACs, with the NRA at the top of the list; and exclude unions.

    Caitlin Johnstone speaks a language even I’s can understand.

    Instead of “trying some f$%#cking democracy for once” how about just doing away with government all together – federal, state, and local. We would be much better off in the long run.

    The attempt at a gun grab in SA isn’t a surprise, after all we’re talking South Africa.

    The military wouldn’t want me these days (and not because my politics have changed).

    I would answer the question ““Five workers earn $135/day. What is the total amount earned by the five workers?” with “Ha! Trick question. The answer is $135 since the word “each” is not between “workers” & “earn”. ”

    Guess I’ve gotten too dumb for the current military since I enlisted many moons ago.
