    That Hillary is keeping secret:

    This one seems brilliantly played: look upstanding by not revealing it; but do a little damage to the opponent anyway.

    Counterpoint: You're having cake and eating it too, and irresponsibly fuel speculation by the mere act of enticing everyone that you have dirt.

    So he didn't inhale? He just snorted?

    So what?

    Do you vote for a candidate as they are or as they were? Because I tell you, I can prove that every candidate with their hand up once shit their nappies (diapers). How's them apples? :badgrin:

    Remind all the fools that still insist Bush was a coward for volunteering to fly outdated one engine interceptors for 4 years.

    Okay.

    Right, you lot that said Bush was a coward for volunteering to fly outdated one-engine interceptors for 4 years, you're all a bunch of dills. You have to know Bush wasn't a dill. He might have been flying outdated single-engine interceptors but no bastard was firing at him. He wasn't that dumb.

    Over and out. :D

    This argument's been shot down long ago. The USAF was still flying F102s when Bush did because Isat in the cockpit of one in a VERY operational fighter squadron at NAS Key West. The bennies of being an Air Force brat with a fighter pilot's wife as Cub Scout Denmother.

    Then there's the fact that Nat'l Guard units served in 'Nam, so there was no guarantee in that.

    Next ....?

    And what percentage of national guard troops were called up to Vietnam? You saw the numbers that I posted. Given the odds, it was as close to a guarantee as anything else.

    Argument shot down............Gunny! You're nearly as bad as me with the puns! :badgrin:

    I remember reading about the ANG in Vietnam. There's a great paragraph of two in Joe Wambaugh's "The Choir Boys" (the book, forget the film, it was crap) where Whalen, who is in the ANG, is discussing in the locker room with the other cops what they did on their days off...fishing...hunting...sports...."flying over Vietnam", says Whalen.

    I can't claim to be an AF brat but my father served in the RAF (ground crew - or Erks as they used to be called) in WWII in India, Ceylon, Burma and other theatres. I was hooked on planes when I got my parachute-supported bum into the back seat of a DH Chipmunk at 13 (air cadet) and didn't puke (before or after lunch) when the pilot showed me what aerobics were :D

    I'm off topic but what the hell.
