@BulletTooth32 The modern man makes perfect sense for the modern woman.  The modern woman wants a man who is a safe and a man who has had his balls chopped off is the safest form of man.

@Rick Dembroski 100% correct.  When I was a kid I wanted to have a job and be able to roll with the grown ups.  Today's kids want to artificially extend their childhood into forever.  This is why we have grad school and PhD programs.

@ratt1niner @JackMurphyRGR @NVShawn College is filled with people who need to man up.  Caveat: we can't say "man up" anymore because it is an offensive sexist term.

@ColonelProp Yes, that was a good class.  The teacher was a nuclear seismologist!  Professor Richards.

@ColonelProp I was very boring in class.  After I realized that we were just supposed to read the texts and not really think about them I just stopped talking.  I found that the teachers and TA's were actually open to dissenting opinions for the most part, but the other students would get really uncomfortable and offended.

@majrod The feminist stuff comes into play is the more "subjective" philosophical classes like literature and suck.  In political science classes that kind of stuff gets laughed at.

@NVShawn Oh, West African History.  Horrible class.  My teacher dropped dime on me in class because I referred to "half breeds" on our mid-term in reference to mixed blooded African women who acted as surrogates for slave traders.  I put it in quotations and he said you can't use scare quotes as an excuse for racist statements.  This is despite the fact that his own syllabus referred to African laborers as "mules" including the scare quotes.  Unreal.  I lost all respect for him after that.  West African history is the class that history majors take and then switch their major to something else.

@Axeman15 I hear a lot of complaining about ROE's and the media, most of it uninformed in my opinion.  Do you know who writes ROE's?  The military does, not politicians.  Next, do you really think our soldiers should have no ROE?  Is it okay then if they go into a village and kill every man, woman, and child they find there?  This is what you mean when you say no ROE, whether you realize it or not.  Is this what we think American soldiers should be doing overseas?


How do you make the media off limits?  We live in a democracy, people have the 1st amendment, and stripping away constitutional protections due to a knee jerk reaction is a horrible idea.  Do you really want media censorship in America?

@Kimsey No, I never recorded lectures, never took pictures of the powerpoint up on the wall, never pulled a all nighter.  Knowing what to read and what no to is a matter of prioritizing.  Sometimes it is a matter of waiting to find out what is on the exam and then going back and pulling up the associated readings.

@Recon6 @Annica Spot on.  Waiting until the last minute is a rookie move that the teenagers make.  If you have other commitments outside of school and you wait to the last minute your work simply will not get done because you have to take your kid to the doctor, have a business meeting, ect...

@Minou_Demimonde Actually, the General Studies Dept. at Columbia has a fairly storied history of taking in vets.  That will have to be another addition in this series.  There were about 350 veterans at Columbia.

@Ragnarok76 @JackMurphyRGR Fair enough.  I don't think this program, or even the Team Room, is for every reader.  In the meantime I'll be doing my best to make both SOFREP and the Team Room much better in the coming months.  I hope you'll enjoy the changes!

Hey folks, I heard there have been some disgruntled members recently.  I want to hear what you think, both about the Team Room and about the SOFREP 300.  Please feel free to let me know what you like and what you don't  I see the Team Room as being what you guys want it to be so don't hold back.  Also, let me elaborate a bit on what I think of the matter.


I think the Team Room provides some good value for our members, but honestly, not enough.  By being a Team Room member you get access to the chat feature, all of our ebooks, forums, and some other stuff.  I think that's great, but not good enough.  I've been getting our staff of writers to participate in the chat room more often so that they are there to answer any follow up questions you guys have about their articles.  We will soon have the ISIS ebook we wrote up in the Team Room.  The next step is more insider baseball type articles that are exclusive to the team room.  This is something that Charlie and I have been discussing over the last few days.


Next, I think we need to hash out any concerns about the SOFREP 300.  I will be writing a monthly newsletter and will facilitate a Q&A with me, or any of our other writers.  If there is anything else you'd like to see from me and Brandon aside from the stuff already listed, please respond here and let us know.  Thanks everyone!

@MerkMan Obviously they should have done more due diligence, but if the Air Force goes to the CIA and asks them to confirm or deny someone who is/was clandestine, the CIA is under absolutely no obligation to do so and probably won't.

@Waterborne As much as I dislike Gore…I think this qualified as an alarmist statement.  Impoverished millions of Americans?  Trillions in higher taxes?  Maybe if Gore got what he wanted, but I think you are giving him way too much credit.
