Dick Cheney says waterboarding does work. I wish he would have waterboarded the economy that he left in such a mess worldwide.

Active duty and military retirees, remember to ask for your military discount at Lowe’s. You deserve it.
I can take a hint. I’ll just take my kids and have them play in another league. You change the time of the game and you don’t even call me. I do have voice mail, so I know you didn’t call.

Well the 5th brigade is finally coming to Fort Stewart/Hinesville. I’d like to know how Liberty County is going to handle, 1. traffic, 2. extra students, 3. medical facilities, 4. soldiers aren’t going to buy houses, they want to rent or live on post, 5. entertainment to keep them out of trouble.
