Each green card holder to be sent to military service


The new directive says that each armed service must comply immediately with a preliminary injunction issued last month in the District Court for the Northern District of California. In it, Judge Jon Tigar agreed with an argument from the American Civil Liberties Union that the Pentagon had not satisfactorily explained why new screening is necessary and said the policy should be disregarded.

This new policy sounds pretty strange to me anyway, since you would force a civic duty upon people who are only temporary citizens of the United States. Why would you want them to serve your country when they were expelled once their card has expired?

If the Pentagon ordered the services to comply with the court injunction, the Navy should ship lawful permanent residents to the “maximum extent possible” to fill about 1,154 open slots in recruit training in December and January, officials added.

Hm...

#Proroshenko counts on the #NATO in conflict with #Russia


#Ukraine has released what it said was the exact location where its ships were fired on by Russia, saying they were in international waters west of the Kerch Strait. Russia, meanwhile, insisted the Ukrainian vessels were in its territorial waters and refused to communicate with the Russian coast guard, or accept a Russian pilot to guide them through the narrow strait.

The problem with nations is that everybody claims land to be his, and is ready to fight for this imaginary claim, no matter if he is right nor not. The exact problem with it? It's everybody's land, and no-one is allowed to claim it solely for oneself. The land is there to be shared justly among everyone who wishes to... show more
 

Further reasons why not to serve in the military


According to the aides, however, the VA said it could not make retroactive payments without auditing its previous education claims, which it said would delay future claims. The aides asked not to be identified because they were not authorized to speak publicly.

Now this is embarassing for a country that holds so much upon its patriotic soldiers trying to preserve their freedom abroad, preventing those Muslim terrorists from entering their beloved country of freedom. Now, they don't even pay those patriotic soldiers what they promised them to pay when they entered the military. Oh, the irony... But don't forget to underscore that you served your country with your life.

Four star general blasts against #Trump


Last year, #McRaven, who did not make an endorsement in the 2016 presidential election, called Drumpf's lambasting of the news media possibly "the greatest threat to democracy in my lifetime" during a speech at the University of #Texas. A four-star admiral who retired from the Navy in 2014, McRaven also wrote an August op-ed article calling on Drumpf to revoke his security clearance after the president pulled former #CIA Director John #Brennan's clearance.

Ernie Henderson is an old friend of mine from elementary school in North Carolina. He served in the Navy and a mutual friend called me to tell me that he is in the hospital in California from a gun shot. Ernie is a wonderful person and always the first to help and show kindness to strangers. Here is a link to a gofundme page to raise money for his mother to travel to California to be with him. Please consider a donation. If you are a complete stranger you are the type of person he would help. https://www.gofundme.com/carolyn-vangildrr?pc=&rcid=r01-153305007191-999476211cb84d7c
