    The all volunteer army has been a disaster. The corporate business like structure of the U.S. army is a disgrace and a cancer.

    It has led to intense corruption,malignant stupidity and outright theft.

    You are malignantly stupid beyond belief. It's been pretty-well established that you don't know one damned thing about the US military. Must you continue to prove it?

    Since at the department procurement level the Army is and always has been "volunteers" and political appointees, on what do you base your stupid accusation?

    The career force of the US military has always been volunteers; which, renders your baseless opinion as empty as your head.

    Get a freakin' clue, huh?

    There's been talk about money being handed out and disappearing without any accountability for quite a while. It's disgusting.

    That said, it's not the fault of the military. It's the fault of the leaders.

    GS is simply pathetic.

    When will that light click on inside your head and demand you stop seeking a reply from me? How many posts and threads has it been now, where quoting me as if I would ever reply.

    Use that big brain and take a hint.

    I will not, under any circumstances talk, engage in, or debate you expect to remind you, that you're a waste of time.

    I will never reply to you in any meaningful way. You have proven to be a hostile personality, valuing insults over substance and tirades over civility.

    Again, stop seeking an answer from me.

    You will never get it.

    I don't think he cares if you reply to him or not. He's just pointing out that you're ignorant beyond belief. It's merely observation.... an accurate one, but observation nonetheless.

    No need for you to respond. We can all observe the same thing.

    Are you going to sit there and agree to call me names?

    Or are you going to put your money where your mouth is and discuss the actual issue?

    Tell me where your point of contention is, and I will respond to it appropriately.

    Calling me names, making broad accusations or agreeing with someone else hurling insults does nothing - I repeat - nothing to enhance any legitimate criticism you might have of my posts.

    Throwing insults expose a member of message board with no class, no values and a shrewd hostility towards substantive discourse.

    Either discuss the issue and bring serious arguments to the table; or go about your day thinking calling another poster names qualifies as serious discussion.

    It's really up to you.

    How do you discuss "facts" with someone who draws conclusions like you do? You aren't talking about facts. You're spewing opinion... and it's pretty ugly in there... so what "facts" would you have others debate?

    Or will you waste everyone's time talking about me, as if I personally have anything to do with the claims I made.

    You aren't responsible for your own trashtalk? Are you channeling someone else, perhaps?
