  • Facebook has become a feeding ground for intrusive ad campaigns. Scams and cons have become more widespread over the last year or so even after repeated reporting. This displays contempt of the customer and the company's revenue seeking behavior.

  • Sorry but hell no.....the crazy bearded gray haired ex-paratrooper look works for me. I wear Aloha shirts and flip flops. The ONLY time I would tuck my Hawaiian Shirt in would be to embarrass my grandkids if I had to pick them up at school

  • French guy style.....

    I think not. I prefer my bewhiskered retired American US Paratrooper style.

    Nobody tucks in an Aloha shirt..unless you want to embarrass your grandkids when picking them up at school.

  • Until recently the perception of the hard drinking, hard charging, hard fighting paratrooper was the norm. We drank and smoked and got it out our systems on a 6 mile run in the morning. After retirement I stopped drinking, with a little help, and quit smoking nicotine by vaping. Electronic cigarettes are under attack for ads targeting young people. Perhaps we need to look at the under age alcohol problem as well. I was looking at the selections that are marketed directly towards young people. Fruity

Perhaps we need to look at the under age alcohol problem as well. I was looking at the selections that are marketed directly towards young people. Fruity flavor beer and liquor products are aimed for our youth. Do we need more laws to protect us and our children or more hands on child rearing and education that enables our kids to make the right decisions responsively.

  • The next generation of military may take part in a really scary era of warfare. AI is going to either reduce casualties or start something that won't stop.

  • I have found this is a fact. although we have several dogs from Chihuahuas to a big Boxer mix. When I was laid up after some surgeries they would stay by my side and avoided the area that was worked on. I can't think of a life without our dogs. Man's best friends for sure.

  • As a young US Army infantryman I was stationed behind the wall in West Berlin. I saw first hand the caring and happy people under the boot of the USSR. With N "East Pass" we could travel through Check Point Charlie and move in a tightly restricted area to shop. The East Berliners would not look you in the eye and would scatter when you approached. Children were collecting bits of coal for heat and the entire place seemed grey. That is the real look of socialism. There is a reason people risked their

There is a reason people risked their lives to escape from places such as Cuba, and the Soviet states.

  • Sorry folks. Nobody is Self Made . You became who you are and what you are due to others. The clownish celebrities that the public admires bother me. They are a bottom feeder types with no skill set other than promoting themselves as a celebrity.

  • Facebook has a clear bottom line agenda. Even when an ad is repeatedly reported as fraud it will still run the ad. Some ads are targeting the low income community that prey upon users. The sex bias in it's advertising policies are on the edge of criminal yet they keep plugging away.
