Milley

If General Milley did in fact undermine civilian authority, would his resigning cancel a possible Court Marshall?

That sounds treasonous to me. I wonder how Washington or Jeffersons would have handled a problem like this?

What could go wrong here:

"Tomorrow at 9:30 a.m. Eastern, the @UnderSecArmy will officially introduce Special Agent Gregory D. Ford as the first civilian director of the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command."

Razor is spot-on.

Is there any truth to the rumor that the Army is coordinating with the Navy for hawser of sufficient girth and lifting capacity to hang this fat bastard?

Milley:

I thought Comey and the FBI, The DOJ, and The CIA was as bad as it could get. The Washington DC Beltway crowd is worse than I thought... and everybody in MSM is O K with it.....

Every single bureaucrat in our government (military and civilian) spends a portion of their day wondering how they can top the last spectacle.
You got a n0bel (small 'n' capital zero) prize for letting a couple middle eastern dudes use your pen to sign an agreement...

Challenge accepted -
I'm gonna endorse some shenanigans with the contras and just say I dont remember anything...

Thats nothing - watch this - I'm gonna puke on the Japanese PM

Hahahaha... rookie - I'm going to get a BJ by a government clerk, sodomize her with a cigar, and then stare straight into the camera and ask the judge to define the word "is"

Good one boss...
...watch me score this n0bel prize for claiming that Manhattan will be under more water than the lost city of Atlantis by the end of the decade.

That...
...is a good one
Al.
I....
...am gonna one up you.
I've got a phone, a pen, and a Nobel prize just for NOT being George Bush.
...and just to kick it up, I'm going to drone strike a US citizen and send Navy SEALs into Pock e stahn

...pfft
I'm going to DARE you fuckers to impeach me, beat it, get impeached again, beat it
...again
and STILL have a higher approval rating than the guy that bought 80 million votes to become POTUS

Oh yeah, well, I'm gonna fuck corn pops mom, drive a tractor trailer, work a lumber job in Idaho, with hold a billion dollars in aide payments until they drop a law suit that would implicate my son, touch a bunch of kids inappropriately, make sweet love to a martian, steal fizzy lifting drinks, invent the question mark, march in civil rights protests, get arrested while visiting Nelson Mandela and you know...
...the thing

There's no bottom to this barrel folks - just a never ending line of mutts trying to prove that...
...well, nothing. They arent trying to prove anything. Its all just a big "fuck you" funded by we the people.





I have spoken

The Generals:

Why does the U S Military need @ 44 or 45 four star generals to "Lead" a force of 1.2 million ?....Talk about a waste of money....Ticket Punchers....Future Consultants to the Military Industrial Complex...Living a life of luxury serving them selves...

I have always found that insane.

- Numbers of active duty personnel for 4 main branches = 1,365,000 (incl civilian staff)
- Allowed number of generals (1-4 star) = 653
- That's a general for every 2,090 personnel.

Crazy!
