Fire him now:

This week U.S. Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert McDonald was forced to apologize after comparing long waits for VA healthcare to lines at a Disney theme park.

This may be a first for the top story of the News Roundup, but I’m going to go ahead and stop right there after the first sentence of our top story. You see, McDonald only finally apologized after refusing to do so on MSNBC, instead choosing to blather about how he’s “working very hard.”

Remember that for the rest of the article. Watch that video above. His first instinct was to start filibustering about his goddamn resume. Guy, listen to me: You suck at your job. I don’t want to hear about how hard you’re working, and how much you care, when you clearly don’t give a shit. Freaking unbelievable.

And yes, as has been pointed out by many on the internet this week, Disneyland, in fact, takes the concept of wait times EXTREMELY seriously. They have whole teams of people who constantly measure efficiency, and take steps to improve it. Putting aside how off-putting and condescending the doofus is, he was completely, and factually, wrong. Let’s also point out how stupid the comparison is. McDonald, you oaf: You think people are dying waiting in line for the goddamn river boat to tour “It’s a Small World?” Rest assured, if ONE PERSON ever did, Disney would have been apoplectic, and heads would have rolled—even if it was completely out of their hands.

I would love to know what was going through his mind when he made this dopey comparison. Worst of all, I can practically guarantee that this wasn’t a statement made off of the top of his head, either. Bureaucrats like McDonald NEVER say things like this off the cuff. This was almost certainly a talking point that some dope on his staff was like, “OOOOOOH, I know! Let’s compare the VA experience to Disneyland!” And all around the table, his stupid minions all sagely nodded their heads, assuring their boss that this was an abso-fucking-lutley TIP TOP comparison. That alone speaks volumes to me about the type of people hired in the upper echelons of the VA, something I’ve screamed about in the past. You think if there was one former pipe-hitter in McDonald’s staff that this particular comparison would have gotten through?

Let’s continue:

Criticism, especially from conservatives, was swift.

And rivals in Florida’s Republican U.S. Senate primarywhich includes an Army special forces veteran, a Navy reservist and a congressman who sits on the committee that funds the VA — are no exception.

Four of the five Republican Senate candidates have called for McDonald to lose his job.

“The VA utterly and systematically fails our veterans,” Carlos Beruff, a millionaire developer from Bradenton, said in a statement earlier this week. “The fact that VA Secretary McDonald is now comparing VA medical centers to a family vacation destination is disgusting.”

The article I’m quoting is from the Miami Herald, which explains the focus on the Senate candidates. Inexplicably, there were a few guys who thought McDonald was doing a fine job:

U.S. Rep. David Jolly, R-Indian Shores, told the Herald/Times that the comments were “disgraceful” and “insulting to those who lost their lives as a result of the wait times.” McDonald’s apology took too long, Jolly said, but he disagreed that the secretary should lose his job.

Jolly, what the hell, man? Is it all just one big club? Is the deal that, once you get to D.C., everyone covers each other’s ass to get that juicy pension money? On what planet is Jolly living that he thinks McDonald shouldn’t lose his job?

You see, it’s not just the incompetence. I understand that there are certain factors that are out of the VA secretary’s control, like arcane civil service laws that protect the worst of the worst employees from getting terminated. But you can tell when someone really cares about something, and when they don’t. McDonald clearly doesn’t. For example: If I’m the VA secretary, and I have corrupt employees who are stealing money and changing wait lists, I’m flying personally to that hospital and firing them. Then, when the corrupt civil service appeals board reinstates them, I hold a press conference outside the hospital and VENT to the news media with some good old-fashioned podium pounding. I would look angry, because I would be angry. Watch that video again. Does he look angry to you?

Because this is Washington, and everyone is part of the team, you had to know this was coming, too:

Neither of the two chief Democrats running for the Senate has called for McDonald, who was appointed by Obama, to resign.

Yeah, shocking. After all, can’t go criticize the boss, right? No matter how incompetent, the Democrats will always have Obama’s back. It would be the same, I’m sure, for Republican reps under a Republican president. God forbid someone have some integrity to stand up and say, “This is WRONG.”

And don’t tell me it’s about the money. The VA is swimming in cash. Look at this funding chart!

Veterans-Administration-funding-chart

Don’t TELL me it’s about the money. You can’t keep throwing money at a problem if there is no WILL to fix the underlying issue. They have enough money to piss away millions on “art,” again, as I’ve ranted about in the past. They have plenty of money to pay for generous salaries and benefits to the legions of administrators and other non-doctors they employ. Money isn’t the issue. It’s the culture.

I’m a VA patient myself. In fairness, my individual experience has not been bad. But there’s the rub: the individual versus the collective. The individual VA employees I’ve had contact with were, for the most part, kind and caring people. But collectively, it is a failed institution filled with incompetent bureaucrats and Byzantine regulations. Again, not exactly McDonald’s fault. But he has failed by not showing any leadership whatsoever. Knowing that I’m up against these absurd rules that protect incompetent federal employees, if I’m the VA secretary, I make a big show of firing them anyway. Then, upon their reinstatement by the corrupt civil service system, I throw a fit. He does none of that.

The wait times scandal is terrible. The rust coming into the operating rooms is terrible. The cockroaches in patients’ food trays is terrible. The buckets of rat shit found in the canteen is terrible. (Did you know that the local health department has NO jurisdiction over the cafeteria at the VA? They inspect themselves, if you can believe it.) The goddamn BLACK MOLD is terrible. The thieving, corrupt executives stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars is terrible. And at the center of it all is the man himself, Robert McDonald, who snidely gives us comparisons to freaking Disneyland.

At least McDonald’s predecessor, Eric Shinseki, had enough honor to resign when the Phoenix VA scandal erupted in 2014. It is now time for McDonald to leave. Resign now, sir, while you have the tiniest shred of dignity left. I find your toxic mixture of incompetence and indifference both appalling and personally offensive. Get. Out.

After all, he should have been fired the second he was caught lying about being in Special Forces. You thought I forgot about that, McDonald? I FORGET NOTHING.

We remember our brothers on Memorial Day:

Gone but never forgotten. RIP, buddy.

Obama pretty much says that the U.S. committed a war crime:

Why do we come to this place, to Hiroshima? We come to ponder a terrible force unleashed in a not-so-distant past. We come to mourn the dead, including over 100,000 Japanese men, women and children, thousands of Koreans, a dozen Americans held prisoner.

Their souls speak to us. They ask us to look inward, to take stock of who we are and what we might become.

Yet in the image of a mushroom cloud that rose into these skies, we are most starkly reminded of humanity’s core contradiction. How the very spark that marks us as a species, our thoughts, our imagination, our language, our toolmaking, our ability to set ourselves apart from nature and bend it to our will — those very things also give us the capacity for unmatched destruction.

Mere words cannot give voice to such suffering. But we have a shared responsibility to look directly into the eye of history and ask what we must do differently to curb such suffering again.

Some day, the voices of the hibakusha will no longer be with us to bear witness. But the memory of the morning of Aug. 6, 1945, must never fade. That memory allows us to fight complacency. It fuels our moral imagination. It allows us to change…

…We see these stories in the hibakusha. The woman who forgave a pilot who flew the plane that dropped the atomic bomb because she recognized that what she really hated was war itself. The man who sought out families of Americans killed here because he believed their loss was equal to his own.

We had a pretty good debate over Obama’s speech in the top secret SOFREP writers’ Facebook page. In my opinion, this was moral equivalence and a slap in the face to every World War II veteran still with us.

On a personal note: My great uncle Jim was an Air Force pilot assigned to give a battle damage assessment of the bomb. Closely following the Enola Gay, he flew right through that freaking mushroom cloud to send back his reports. The man had balls bigger than Blake Lively’s ass, and, undoubtedly, just as pleasing to the eye.

I’m just glad he passed away a few years ago, and didn’t have to watch this abortion unfold on TV. Uncle Jim, who would go on to become an FBI special agent out of California for decades, would have driven to D.C. himself and choked Obama’s sissy ass out, even at 80+ years old. But others in the punditry don’t see it that way. An argument was made that, hey, Obama didn’t apologize. He was merely musing about the horrors of nuclear war.

Fine. If you want to do that, you don’t go to freaking Nagasaki and do it. You don’t speak in terms like the president did, talking about how evil it was. And you DEFINITELY don’t do it on goddamn Memorial Day weekend. I mean, how obtuse can you get? On Memorial Day weekend!

8029823.jpg

Thanks to Wikileaks, we know that someone in the United States government had floated the idea of an apology, which Japan quickly nixed. After all, if the U.S. apologized, that would have forced Japan to apologize for the many, many atrocities they committed throughout Southeast Asia in the early part of the 20th century. Not to mention a certain other one that rhymes with Earl Sharbor. And if you don’t think that Obama didn’t at least consider apologizing, you’re an idiot. He knew people would lose their minds, so he did this “we’re all evil” crap.

President Obama didn’t bring up any of that. Instead, he chose to do his mealy mouthed moral equivalence bullshit. “Hey, everyone made a lot of mistakes back then.” FUCK YOU, man. We were sitting there minding our own business when the Japanese came out of the sky and bombed our Navy base into smithereens. And then, following a brutal campaign in the Pacific, fought by men whose shoes the ladyboys in this administration aren’t fit to shine, we made a hard decision to end the war, rather than slog it out with a ground invasion that would have resulted in tens of thousands more Americans being killed.

It doesn’t matter how I took the speech. It doesn’t matter how the media took the speech. What matters is how guys like Uncle Jim took the speech. And I freaking gurantee you, they are not too goddamn happy. This was an embarrassment.

Follow me on Twitter for campaign 2016 analysis:

Yes, this is a political topic, so skip it if it’s too controversial for you. But since we’re all adults here, and since we are picking our next commander-in-chief, let’s talk campaign 2016. I’m going to get to Hillary and Donald, but let’s talk about this guy. What follows is my opinion only. Other than a mutual hatred of the corrupt Hillary Clinton, I have no idea what the other SOFREP writers’ politics are.

You know, I actually felt kind of bad for The Bern in the beginning. He is getting totally screwed by this arcane primary system the democratic party has. See, that’s the thing about this year’s election: The wacky rules have finally been exposed for the world to see. Nobody actually knew any of this shit before. We’ve never had a presidential race in modern times that was so close where it even mattered. But all of a sudden, we have a unique situation in which the primaries are actually competitive, and now everyone can see all of these horseshit rules that govern these things.

Think I’m kidding? Quick, raise your hand if, a year ago, you could have told me the difference between a regular delegate and a SUPER delegate. I’m betting not one person in a thousand would have answered that question correctly. And how many knew that that some states were winner-take-all delegates, and others were proportionally awarded? How many knew that California had a rule that that delegates were awarded county by county? Maybe a few of you, but I sure as fuck didn’t. I thought that the guy who won the state got the delegates. All of them. Maybe that makes me a retard. I don’t know. But I’m pretty sure I’m far from alone in my ignorance. Now, this wacky system designed to protect the party’s preferred nominee is being exposed, and people are pissed off.

That being said, Bernie is a nut. The guy was literally a BUM until he was 40 years old. His wife bailed on him because he was a loser slob living in a cabin with a dirt floor doing shitty carpentry. Inexplicably, the good people of Vermont took a look and said, “Yep, THAT’S OUR GUY,” and he’s been in Congress ever since, doing jack shit except penning weird rape fantasy essays and musing on the wonders of 13-year-olds touching each other’s genitals.

Now, he wants to be president, and he wants to take your money, and my money, and every productive member of society’s money, and piss it away on useless government programs. And, in a fascinating display, he appears to be totally uninterested in talking about ANYTHING other than how immoral it is that burger-flippers only make 10 bucks an hour. I’m serious. He won’t. Remember this from late last year?

One day removed from the Paris terrorist attacks last month, the three Democratic candidates running for president gathered in Iowa for a debate. The first question was, predictably, about the attacks and what they meant for both the ongoing fight against the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, and the broader battle against terrorism.

Bernie Sanders got the first crack at it. Here’s what he said:

Together, leading the world, this country will rid our planet of this barbarous organization called ISIS.

I’m running for president, because as I go around this nation, I talk to a lot of people. And what I hear is people’s concern that the economy we have is a rigged economy. People are working longer hours for lower wages, and almost all of the new income and wealth goes to the top 1 percent.

He devoted a grand total of one sentence (!) to the attacks. He then launched into a 123-word riff on the necessity to address climate change, economic inequality and campaign finance reform.

That moment was a glimpse into the serious limitations that Sanders has as a candidate — and why, as the race has turned to issues outside his wheelhouse, he has struggled.

And his orders to the media?

Then, just a few days ago, he was on the John and Ken show, on KFI radio Los Angeles, one of the most-listened-to talk radio shows in the country. Understand that the show is hardly “right-wing;” the duo regularly skewer Republicans. But they don’t let guests just blow gas without being challenged. They asked him a simple question: Why does he think government should be massively expanded when it is failing even simple tasks, like letting veterans die before they get health care? He bailed on them as soon as they stopped letting him filibuster with his bullshit. (Audio at the link.)

HOST: My question about the VA was, it’s pretty clear from the scandal the last couple of years that the veterans are waiting weeks and sometimes months. Sometimes, they’re dying before they get an appointment and sometimes the supervisors are lying about the waiting lists and lying about the response time. And in Chicago, they’re breathing in black mold at the nursing home and they’re being served cockroaches. It seems like there’s a lot of dysfunction spread around the country. What I want to know is, it would help get more support for your ideas if we saw the TSA running properly, the VA running properly, and similar agencies that the public has to deal with.

SANDERS: Well, I think it goes without saying that we want all of our government agencies to run as cost-effectively and as efficiently and as well as possible.

HOST: Why don’t they?

SANDERS: Excuse me. But if you all think that the private sector today is doing just a great job, let’s talk about Wall Street’s greed which drove this country into the worst economic recession and the fraud, the rampant fraud that exists on Wall Street who paid $5 billion, Goldman Sachs paid $5 billion to the government as a settlement because they were selling worthless subprime mortgage packages. You can talk about corporations that are shutting down all over America and moving to China where they pay people a few bucks an hour and bring their products back into this country.

See what I mean? He just starts going into his socialist drivel. Yes, Bernie, we are all aware of the Wall Street crooks, and I happen to share in those feelings. But that’s not the goddamn QUESTION. He just falls back on his dumb talking points whenever he is challenged. And when confronted by actual journalists, doing their actual job, he shows himself to be an actual buffoon.

But hey, I’ll bite. Let’s take Sanders’ signature issue—income inequality—and ask him one question that NOBODY in the media will ask him: If you’re so concerned about the wages of lower- and middle-class workers, why do you then support policies that would assure the arrival of millions more immigrants to compete with the very jobs that go to those Americans? Then demand an answer. Of course, that will never happen, since the media  thinks Bernie is like, totally cool and junk. Which explains why they give him a pass on his thuggish, foul, violent, left-wing BUM anarchist supporters, who march under the flag of a foreign nation and then blame Trump for “violence.”

Instead of answering tough questions, Sanders goes to Bill Maher to get his anus tongue-bathed by a fellow traveler. What people see in him, I have no idea. To top it off, he wants 10 grand more from me per year, according to left-wing Vox.com’s candidate tax calculator. Bro: EAT MY ASS. I get raped as it is.

This cracked me up:

I love cooking shows as much as anyone. But if you find them all slightly goddamn pretentious, watch the video. This is well done.

This is not a joke:

A sergeant in the Wyoming National Guard has become the Army’s first female enlisted infantry soldier.

Sgt. Shelby Atkins on Thursday graduated alongside 32 male soldiers from a two-week infantry qualification and transition course at Camp Guernsey Joint Training Center in Wyoming. The course was designed to train soldiers for the Wyoming Guard’s first infantry unit in more than 100 years.

“She’s the first female Army [noncommissioned officer] in the total Army to be granted the infantry [military occupational specialty],” said Jack Harrison, a spokesman for the National Guard Bureau.

Army officials in the Pentagon also confirmed that fact to Army Times…

..Atkins, who was a horizontal construction engineer before switching military occupational specialties, was one of at least two female soldiers who attended the infantry qualification and transition course, said Deidre Forster, a spokeswoman for the Wyoming Guard. Atkins, who has deployed to Bahrain, was the only female graduate, Forster said…

…She, along with her fellow graduates, will be assigned to C Company, 1st Battalion, 297th Infantry Regiment. This company-sized element will be the first infantry unit in the Wyoming Guard in more than 100 years; it is scheduled to be activated in July, Forster said…

…The two-week infantry course the soldiers underwent was designed to train infantry soldiers for the new unit, Forster said. The Army sent infantry NCOs to Wyoming to teach the course.

635999538829733478-Wyoming-Guard-Atkins-1

This story came from the Army Times, which, shockingly (he said sarcastically), failed to point out that regular infantry school is at Fort Benning, Georgia. Not only is the school much longer than two weeks, it’s juuuuuuuust a little more intense than some guy coming to your unit and giving you a PowerPoint for a few weeks. What the hell is that?

What’s next? Is BUDs going to be online? Will PJs get female commanders who got a two-week orientation course? Will Special Forces selection become optional? This is a JOKE. And not just a ding on the female. Every guy there should have insisted that he be sent to Fort Benning. How can you possibly command infantry troops when you haven’t gone through the same training they have? The most buck private fresh out of infantry school will be ten times more qualified to go into battle than any of these fake “infantry” NCOs. I know for a fact in both PJ selection and BUDs, the officers get the beatings worse than any enlisted guy. Indeed, potential combat rescue officers (PJ officers) get their own, personal, one-week, HELLISH selection course before the regular selection even starts, just to make sure they can hack it!

This is an absolute disgrace. And the Army Times, which should really know better, should have put in a little more information, instead of trumpeting this across the front page of their website. This young lady, and her fellow guardsmen, are no more infantry NCOs than my three-year-old niece. And it’s all a result of the social engineering policies of one Barack Obama, and his useful idiot, Defense Secretary Ash Carter. Haven’t I warned you about Ash Carter and his social-justice minions time and time and time again?

It saddens me that we have a president who is more obsessed with making sure the “correct” amount of soldiers have the “correct” genitalia than having the most lethal and professional military on the planet. Having purged the military of any officer who may have pushed back on this, the officer corps now merely rolls over for this, after assuring us all that “derrrr standards won’t change derrrr derrrrrr.” It is an abomination.

Like I’ve said before, time to put up or shut up. Take a whole platoon of females and have them start patrolling the Korengal Valley in Afghanistan. Then, once the inevitable carnage takes place, maybe these psychopaths will see the error of their ways. Ah, who am I kidding? They still wouldn’t.

Ranger officers writing country songs on deployment:

Maybe it was bound to happen: After 15 years of war, two talented soldiers cross paths and discover a mutual love of music.

That’s exactly what occurred for First Lt. Andrew Yacovone and First Lt. Justin Wright, Army rangers writing and producing country songs on deployment in Afghanistan.

That’s outstanding. Great job, fellas. They call themselves “Interstate 10,” which until now, I have associated with Los Angeles traffic that is so horrific, I’ve wanted to run a garden hose from the exhaust pipe into my car and just go to sleep forever, simultaneously fucking people over as I stalled out and made the traffic even more unbearable as a final “fuck you.” But now, I’ll think of soothing country music. Maybe.

Duncan Hunter goes to bat for SF soldier:

A year after a Special Forces soldier was denied the Medal of Honor, the nation’s top award for valor in combat, a congressman has appealed to the new Army secretary to review the case.

Army Secretary Eric Fanning was sworn in as the service’s top civilian leader last week, and almost immediately received a letter from Rep. Duncan Hunter, R.-Calif., asking if he would review the case of Sgt. 1st Class Earl D. Plumlee. The Green Beret soldier was nominated for the Medal of Honor for his role in repelling a brutal ambush in Afghanistan in 2013 and received recommendations for the prestigious award from several of the military’s most powerful officers, but was ultimately denied last year by then-Army Secretary John McHugh. Plumlee instead received the Silver Star, which is two levels below the Medal of Honor in recognizing combat heroism.

size0

The case has been investigated by the Defense Department inspector general’s office and pressed by Hunter, who became a vociferous critic of McHugh in his last year in office. Hunter is looking to resurrect Plumlee’s case now in part by noting that McHugh chose to approve the lower award after learning that Plumlee faced a criminal investigation in the Army for allegedly selling a rifle scope online illegally. That raised questions about whether the service only wants recipients of its top awards who have a sparkling overall record. Plumlee has since been cleared of any charges.

Maybe if Hunter shows up in Fanning’s office in a Speedo, fully shorn and greased up, the new secretary would be more open to discussion? OK, OK, I’m joking. Calm down.

Everyone comes home:

The founder of a volunteer group says it has found the remains of 13 more World War II Marines on a Pacific atoll.

Mark Noah, head of Marathon, Florida-based History Flight, tells The Associated Press that 12 sets of remains were found on Tarawa between January and March and a 13th set of remains was found this week.

WAR & CONFLICT BOOK ERA: WAR IN THE EAST

The Pentagon’s Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency confirms more remains have been found, although it couldn’t confirm the number. The agency says it will return the remains to the U.S. this summer.

Last year, Honor Flight found the remains of 35 Marines on Tarawa, which is part of the island nation of Kiribati, and the Defense Department found a 36th set.
All were returned to the U.S. The Pentagon says 23 of them have been identified.

Honor flight is doing outstanding work in making sure every single one of our servicemen comes home. Hats off to them.

Air Force vet killed, cut up with chainsaw:

A U.S. Air Force veteran and hospice nurse was cut up with a chainsaw after being killed by her ex-husband, according to police who are still trying to find her body.

article-todd-5-0527

Investigators in Martin County, Fla., looking for evidence of Tricia Todd, 30, found only a few remains at the Hungryland Wildlife Area buried in a container with acid.

Her ex-husband Steven Williams, a 30-year-old Air Force staff sergeant in North Carolina, directed them to the site as part of a plea deal in which he agreed to serve 35 years in prison and plead no contest to second-degree murder.

article-todd-2-0527

Williams said that he left her body by a dirt road, however concerns about his account of the killing and where the body is have led to the possibility of his plea deal being revoked.

Asst. State Attorney Tom Bakkedahl says that he believes that the defendant broke the deal and wants to put him on a “slow bus to death row.”

We need to overhaul the death penalty process. Because right now, the bus to death row isn’t just slow, it barely moves.

May I suggest using the nightstick, officer:

Execute them and be done with it:

COLDWATER, Miss. — Four men are accused of killing a military veteran in Coldwater, Mississippi.

Investigators said the killers knocked on the 56-year-old Will Gordon’s door and shot him when he answered.

Screen Shot 2016-05-29 at 1.59.14 AM

Police said right now, they think it was a robbery, but wouldn’t say what the men were after or if they took anything from the home.

“The door is knocked on, and Mr. Gordon was shot,” said District Attorney John Champion.

Investigators said evidence pointed to 21-year-old Antarious Boyd, and when they arrested him May 18, they quickly learned about other suspects.

On Wednesday, Deorio Rogers, Terrence Bledsoe and Trevor Moore were charged with murder.

Screen Shot 2016-05-29 at 1.58.03 AM

“It’s another classic example of youth gone wrong. If you look at the ages of these kids, they are 20 to 21- years-old,” said Champion.

He said these men have criminal histories in Tate and possibly Panola counties, and some were arrested right after they turned 18-years-old.

Gordon was a father, a veteran and had just married his high school sweetheart.

RIP, Will Gordon. And Champion…shut your stupid mouth. They aren’t “youth gone wrong.” Don’t try to humanize these shitheads. They are savage animals that should be put down. Guy opens a door and gets shot in the face. What a country.

Don’t show up drunk to your court-martial:

MARINE CORPS BASE QUANTICO, Va. — The former commander of the Wounded Warrior Regiment has pleaded guilty to having an inappropriate relationship with a Marine corporal during a Friday court-martial.

Col. T. Shane “Rhino” Tomko also pleaded guilty to showing up drunk to his May 6 arraignment and for violating a military protective order to not contact his wife.

Tomko, who was relieved of command in February 2015, faced allegations of misconduct that were investigated by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. Charges were preferred against him on Feb. 11, and he was put in jail after driving to his arraignment with a blood alcohol level of 0.28 — more than three times the Virginia state limit of 0.08.

5871387039_526a13176e_b

 

He told Col. Pete Rubin, the military judge, that between May 2014 and August 2015, he had an unduly friendly relationship with a Marine under his command, with whom he shared text and Facebook messages that contained sexual content.

“I feared there were things on numerous Marines’ Facebook accounts that could be used in a prosecution,” he said.

Still, Tomko’s military defense attorney Maj. Geoff Shows had to nudge Tomko to stop defending his actions, such as when Rubin asked Tomko if he made disparaging remarks about the commander and sergeant major of the Wounded Warrior Regiment.

“I stand by every one of those words I said,” Tomko said.

Talking shit about your boss is in the very best of military traditions. However, ya may want to tone it down a little bit in front of the court-martial judge, Tomko. Also, might I suggest leaving the booze until AFTER the court-martial?

And for Chrissakes, will you guys stop with the sexting already? How many times have I told you? Leave no evidence. It always comes back to bite you in the ass. If you absolutely HAVE to tell the hot little E-3 that she has a great can, do it face-to-face and where nobody is watching. That’s just common sense.

You couldn’t pay me enough for this shit:

CAMDEN, SC Police arrested a woman they say trespassed at a Huddle House restaurant and exposed herself to officers.

The officer spoke to the cook at the Huddle House, who said Bracey, 39, was being loud and obnoxious inside the restaurant.

When the officer told Bracey she was under arrest, she began to walk away “still using foul language” and crossed a small creek.

Toni Bracey

After the officer asked her to walk toward him, the report said she began yelling and took off her clothes from the waist down and then her shirt, exposing herself to the officers.

Officers then put her in handcuffs, but she sat on the ground and refused to get up. At that point, one of the officers had to drive a car closer before they transported her to Kershaw County Detention Center.

At least she maintained her good humor about the whole thing. @BKactual
