    Our Special Ops also “get the job done” at a fraction of the cost.

    You asked for one example, there you go.

    BTW: In case you did not know: ALL schools for many years have all the doors locked and only one way in... at the office/reception area.
    Even if we had an armed guard outside each classroom it won’t solve the problem. We still have nuts out there with full access to “assault rifles”. They will just go to a shopping mall. And what’s the solution to that…more armed guards.

    You are really poor at connecting the dots then. It was when obesity became a problem that the government started looking at it. You are only making yourself look silly with these not thought out comments.

    Again... you do not read the news well...

    Seems when they went to get BinLaden... they wasted two VERY EXPENSIVE stealth choppers... Blackwater would have done it for a fraction of the cost.

    Blackwater could not have pulled off that mission without the use of helicopters, backup helicopters, backup personnel and air support. Our Special Ops work on a daily basis without trashing helicopters. We lose a lot more while seeking far less important targets. ...Our guys do armed escorts for less too.

    And you call me stubborn.

    With all due respect there GA I generally agree with you but the Blackwater boys I don't think would be willing to sacrifice their life for the cause. I mean like rushing a position like a young well trained (and to a certain extent "brainwashed") SF gung ho trooper would. I know what I'm talking about.

    I was fully indoctrinated when I went through my training in 67 prior to going to Nam. The Blackwater boys I'm sure would take some risks but nothing like well trained and motivated young soldiers would. Thank you, thank you very much

    To point out about the nutrition regulations: MY daughter eats fast food/junk food once a week and will have a drink of soda once a week. My wife and I feed her healthy food and don't need OR WANT the government to tell us how to do our jobs as parents. If they were so good at "taking care of business" then why is our country going to crap?

    Well said!!

    One can have 10-15-maybe 25% of healthy... with the govt paying for it. OR

    One can go it alone and do what they think is RIGHT... and have 100%

    So which one would folks want?

    Missed your post the first time around, only caught it because of Roy. And yes I am more practically minded than some here, mind you I am more to the right in my country, I just look left compared to some here.

    On vehicles I think it is a good thing to make them efficient, I do not believe in wasting things unnecessarily. Just look at the vehicles that we have now compared to the early 80's. We still have cars that can hold a family and their stuff and yet they still can put out 200hp and get twice the fuel economy of a similar car back then. I do not see this as a bad thing.
