Air Force Amn/NCO/SNCO Facebook Group Behind the Jet As Usual


Just got notified that a post I made on the Air Force Amn/NCO/SNCO Facebook Group page got approved.  Today.  And the rocket scientists that frequent that page made comments like indicating they don't understand the legal argument (that government officials should not use their official positions to censor others so long as they're doing it on Facebook).

So I edited my post to clue these folks in.  Which then resulted in the post being relegated back to the bin of "safety" and again requiring admin approval.  The only thing that page is safe from is common sense.  At least the admins were quicker about approving the edit though.

That's good.  Now un-American nutters that frequent that Facebook page (like Jason Burns) can save their un-American comments where they cheer on government censorship of the speech of citizens it disagrees with.  Or, in Jason's case, keep on making it clear why our military is so spectacularly failing the American people.

Yes, GearPig, You Should Have


To support and defend, the oath you took, meant demanding yourself, your peers, your superiors and others in the government you held office in, meet the higher standard of public service.  It's not an either or thing, that would have been you meeting the standard you agreed to when you entered federal public office.

Getting good OPRs and pleasing your boss wasn't enough.  Flying a tight ILS approach wasn't enough.

You are correct that it's too late and that ship has sailed.  That has been obvious for some time now.  When the digital water cooler you moderated saw our rights as an annoyance and evidence of tin foil thinking and when your peers celebrated their tools of the trade being used to murder Americans in violation of the Fifth Amendment, it should have been clear.  So also when they joked about fuse settings for munitions to drop on Occupy protestors or when they lashed out at Edward Snowden for trying to get the government to meet standards.  Your peers have long demonstrated that they were unfit for public office and that was the culture that was accepted and celebrated.

And now we are seeing the results of that lack of character combined with a massive disparity in technology between those inside the walls, and the peasants outside them.  Almost comically, some of your peers don't yet realize which side of the wall they're actually on.  Supporting our Constitution, bearing true faith and allegiance to it, is a selfish act as much as the mark of a professional public servant.  A DD214 makes poor body armor when a tyrannical government, filled with the current crop of fascist thugs disgracing their uniforms, is given an order by the degenerate culture you've identified as operating the levers of power.  The Green Beret from Idaho could have told you that, so could any number of J6 protestors currently rotting in prison cells for exercising their First Amendment rights.

It is too late.  It will get so much worse.  And so it goes.

Liz the "Lawman" Pushes Neo-Con Subjugation of America on Behalf of Foreign Nations


The ironically named Lawman never fails to spread neo-con talking points in his quest to continue the damage to America brought about by the military industrial complex.  Reading his tripe for years, I'm almost convinced "he" is actually Liz Cheney in drag behind a keyboard.  Clever lady.

But not clever enough (despite taking an oath to support and defend the Constitution) to realize that Americans already elected representatives who already passed a law way back in 1865 (the highest law that can be passed, ie a constitutional amendment) which already makes the draft illegal.  That Thirteenth Amendment to our Constitution clearly states with unambiguous text:

Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

But people like Lawman don't care about that.  They'll even try to "law" their way out of it with "interpretation" and appeals to government authority (by which they mean power).  For example, pointing to lesser and lower laws which clearly are null and void as they contradict the clear supreme law that is our Thirteenth Amendment.  Lawman says, "See, our government ignores our supreme law and does it anyway, so that means that's the path forward and consensus and get your ass on the train..."  Any restrictions on a "free" country conscripting young adults and throwing them into a thresher to defend some foreign "free" country, must be ignored.  The war machine must be fed while it destroys our economy, makes us less safe, and replaces able bodied men with double amputees and wreaths.

Liz Lawman, please move to the foreign country of your choice if America and its laws and the will of its people are not to your liking.  Please stop damaging our nation from the inside by cloaking yourself in a uniform that you disgrace.  Thanks lady.

Oh, and say hi to your boyfriend, Adam Kinzinger, for me.  If you can pry him away from ClearedHot of course.
