@majrod @JackMurphyRGR Major, do you think the beheading of the 'female aid worker' would change the dynamic? With public approval possible would it up the ante for intervention?
Seems Americans become a bit more 'upset' when a woman is involved, ref. Jessica ?? ....6

just wondering how we managed to have so very little at the exact moment in History when much more is required? hmmmm .....6

@JackMurphyRGR @Recon6 @Annica def. agreed. I worked a full time job from 2300-0700 and played bball and baseball so it took 'effort' to make decent grades..kids played around and studied the last minute. Being older had advantages in one's approach to academics....6
@Annica Been decades since my military/college days A, but, I found that completing my 'assignments' immediately after they were issued really helped me. For example, if given a weekend project, I would begin on Friday! Most students wait till later in the weekend to begin and I was already finished. For exams I would always get up early and rehash everything I had already gone over.
Being prepared in Advance was a tremendous asset imo. In high school I was a 'D' student. After the military and in college, I received a single 'B' (Psychology as the prof did Not like Vets and our opinions) the remainder were 'A', not bad for a Grunt ha ! Just be prepared, take copious notes and best wishes.....6

@YankeePapa @Recon6 @TexGrl @KESStrong totally agree YP, Semper Gumby ...6
@KESStrong no worries, Enjoy your day and your little one, have FUN...6
@KESStrong @Recon6 I wanted to add, I am really pissed at what these bastards did to these ppl, it is beyond reprehensible and becomes animalistic. There is no honor in killing a person in this manner, thus I believe we should act in a like method.
I know many will say we don't 'stoop to their level', but I'm too old school to buy into that. They need to be exterminated, period. As there can be no peace or coexist with them they need to die....6
@YankeePapa @Recon6 @KESStrong @TexGrl I often refer to the 'old days of REP' when just a few of us, primarily former/military with a few Ladies to keep us civil, and a new person was Encouraged to learn prior to entering the water. Tango9 would castrate anyone not being mannerly and there would usually be a 'pile on' by everyone present...
We have become more moderate in our approach although I admit I became tired of the effort to help 6/2.
Additionally, we have such Awesome members on this site and one doesn't hear that ref. other mil.sites ....6

@YankeePapa @TexGrl @Recon6 @KESStrong well YP, I certainly am Awed by Your presence !! ....6
@Waterborne Amen brother, I always want everything to work for the new folks but I learned long ago sometimes it just isn't meant to be... @LauraKinCA is always on the look out for my 'Barnes' persona who was much more prevalent in the beginning of REP when these types showed up to disrespect our people...
fortunately not so much since we went to a pay forum, thank goodness as it could be a real bitch in the old days. I tried to help out 6/2 but eventually gave up as he persisted thinking he was on to something, hope he 'learned', if not... bye lol....6
@KESStrong @Recon6 thank you ma'am.for the link...6
@KESStrong @Recon6 copy That ! just seemed like he was dumping on @TexGrl and opinions in general and that isn't allowed on SOFREP as you can tell by BW's intervention...
before I knew it I was elbows deep and tried a couple of times to extricate myself but he wouldn't let it GO lol
I actually think he may have had something to contribute but it got out of hand too early...
I need to be more 'aware' but hey, it isn't the first time....6

@Waterborne yes, very interesting article. Seems I Need to follow 'The New Yorker' as that was the first time I read it, good stuff.
I was saddened by the death of Dr. Kahn, I had been hoping such a courageous man just might survive as he did so much for others.
This is a terrible disease and everyone should be 'aware' and we can only wish our gov't would handle this better in the future to be able to protect the American ppl....6

@SixTwo @clluelo @Recon6 @TexGrl @Waterborne "people purporting to defend the right to speak seem to be so ardently in favor of suppressing mine" ??? You do Realize I could have 'deleted' your entire conversation if desired? THAT would have been suppression.
I encourage you to go back and read the entire conversation, the Entire comm, attempt to gain a perspective of how You presented yourself as a new member, there is still Hope...
The people you are talking about have been here considerably Longer than you and are well aware of the education and experience of said members, thus we have similar 'views' on certain issues.
Look, no one is against you, regardless of what you think. Again, if you have something to present, plz do so in a civil manner. Don't denigrate Anyone here, just offer what you have... try that and see what happens....6
@SixTwo @Recon6 @clluelo @TexGrl @Waterborne how old are you? you realize you 'sound like a spoiled kid' don't you?
In the beginning I thought perhaps you had something of import to offer, however, your victimization has become ridiculous. Take the time to research WHO you are talking with, then contribute....6
@Minou_Demimonde Rec'd +1, thanks MM....6
@TexGrl @SixTwo @Recon6 @Waterborne hey, he Tried !! that is what is important and it is a Link....lol...6
@clluelo @SixTwo @Recon6 @TexGrl @Waterborne Hello Hettie, he's just a kid who has a bit of intelligence on the current American crisis but lacks the social skill to impart it on a military themed forum to his elders...
I gave him enough rope after he insulted @TexGrl and he did what I expected, managed to victimize himself and then lose it.
Another REP FNG, either he'll learn but like you I have little hope....6
@SixTwo @Recon6 @TexGrl @Waterborne oh no, so sorry Mr. SixTwo, I will humbly retire to my basement in my Mom's house. Sorry if I offended you, after all, you are applying to join the ARMY and who am I to disparage YOU
I sincerely meant the 'good luck' but I will "stuff my wishes and false humily where my opinions come out of bro" does that mean my Ass?
golly, I must have upset you? wow, how childish of me! Plz SOFREP members, please forgive me as I have upset Mr. SixTwo and his application to Be in the ARMY.... my bad.... :( .....6

I wish you well in your endeavor to obtain a billet, commendable, perhaps then you can learn some manners prior to engaging others in dialogue...
yes your behavior on this thread was stupid and short sighted. You came here and insulted ppl due to their lack of knowledge on a thread, on a members only forum. That showed a lack of intelligence imo...
just for your information, there are dumb ass SF just as there are in any endeavor. A good soldier knows when to speak and when to listen...
you were asked to give us something and you finally came through with a link, good...
best wishes on that billet and hope it works for you....6
@YankeePapa Rec'd +1 YP, perhaps you and I won't be around (you will be sorely missed) when something terrible this way comes...
hope we are better prepared for sure but not encouraged by the ebola fiasco....6

@clluelo @Recon6 @TexGrl @SixTwo @yanica copy, so sorry about the 'events' in your AO recently. Heartfelt condolences offered...
Miss J terribly, Hoping she and CJ are well and looking forward to Vegas with the predeployment visit to their AO....6
@SixTwo @Recon6 @TexGrl @Waterborne lol, damn bro, are you really this stoo-pid?
thanks for the link tho... will check it out. Now, Why didn't you offer that in the beginning instead of insulting a couple of us? BW wasn't posing as an 'expert' just encouraging dialogue and the exchange of Intel so we could become knowledgeable.
Are you Not former military? you seem confused by good Intel.....6
@SixTwo @Recon6 @TexGrl @Waterborne @YankeePapa ok Fucking New Guy, you are becoming quite tedious...
read the comments where you were asked to present 'knowledge' as we said we had little. We simply defended the 'right' to comment on a member forum, not as experts such as yourself, but as people desirous of gaining knowledge.
YOU chose to insult people with your manner much in the way yanica did and it is unacceptable. Dialogue is what makes these threads GO...
you were asked to please write something of which you were knowledgeable and you refrain....
YOU said if we weren't informed then we should be quiet as "your opinions don't mean shit". The fact I'm not informed doesn't mean I don't have thought and opinions on ebola, even tho I did Not posit any.
You have ventured into the world of SOFREP, don't know your background or experience, But, I encourage you to learn and know your audience Before insulting folks. You are NEW here so stupidity is understood and tolerated to a point. We don't have "completely baseless position", as we told you and which you want to ignore.
IF you are knowledgeable, Plz inform us, if you are not, no worries, we have others such as @traumamama and @Minou_Demimonde who Are knowledgeable on medical matters as well as many SF Medics et al
Damn, how'd I get involved with this @Waterborne lol You usually handle these ppl while I feel 'Barnes' coming on.....6
@TexGrl @Recon6 @Waterborne lol yes ma'am, @Waterborne also pointed that out to him, not that he will acknowledge such...
and then @YankeePapa came along with some good Intell for us to digest, All because this topic began to be discussed !! ....6
@clluelo @Recon6 @TexGrl @SixTwo @yanica oh my, hell hath no Fury like a SOFREP WOMAN !!
Good to see you Hettie, I have missed you....6
@YankeePapa If we don't YP our great nation will be in deep Kimchi....6
@TexGrl @Recon6 @Waterborne I thought we did TG ? He's a FNG who Might have some good Intel but managed to disparage those who don't, thus... he fails...6
@Waterborne LMAO ! yeah, guess we all should be cause our "opinions don't mean shit" ha !
I spend all this money on REP for three years and then discover I don't count? Sure glad @SixTwo arrived to let me and @TexGrl know we are Worthless !
Just don't tell Jack or BW or they won't take our money anymore....6
@Waterborne lol, Rec'd +1 ... FNG's will never change....6
6 days, 19 hours ago on Ebola, Coming to a City Near You: Six Ebola Policy Changes We Need Now
@SixTwo @Recon6 @Waterborne I do think if you read my 'comments' you will see I did Not posit anything ref. "containment strategies of a communicable disease", now did I?
I simply referenced the method you chose to tell those of us who were interested in what You had to teach us that "we didn't know anything", of
which we were already well aware. We didn't guess or pose a solution or method of contagion, we simply took offense at 'yanica' and his/her method of attack, and you took up the mantle...
think it's time to enlighten and inform rather than continue? ....6
@TexGrl @Recon6 @SixTwo @yanica I know TG, been following your comments since your arrival on REP... it's All Good ! Lively debate is encouraged on REP, occasionally someone will attempt to disparage one's remarks, just ignore them and Charlie MIke lol
I have Learned so much here as we have many Knowledgeable members on REP and the subject matter changes minute by minute. Never become discouraged or hold back, it is a public forum for paying members and Everyone is welcome....6
@TexGrl @Recon6 @SixTwo @yanica of course TG ! 6/2 probably has some good and useful Intel, it is simply his manner of denigrating someone else's comment that sucks, although he is right in a sense.
Since you and I really don't know, And have a desire to know, we really should get beyond the rhetoric and be Enlightened lol.
Don't be upset with the messenger, just his method of presenting his Intel, look for the good parts :) ....6
@SixTwo @Waterborne whoa bubba, "just because you're concerned doesn't mean your opinions count for shit" ?? Really? Because TG isn't an expert on ebola, or myself, our opinions don't count on a forum?
So we just remain silent and leave it to the experts? You do realize there is a way to say that without sounding like a complete douche, right?
As I said previously, you 'sound' as though you may know something many of us don't and we would like to Learn, a major reason many of us come to REP, therefore, enlighten us Obi Wan ....6
@SixTwo @Recon6 @TexGrl @yanica lol, Because it Is an internet Forum bro !
You apparently have 'some knowledge' on this subject, why not post what you Know so those of us with lesser knowledge can read and Learn? Even BW would be willing to be taught if it was something of which he was not knowledgeable.
I have heard several 'methods of spreading ebola' thus far and I'm still not certain which is untrue? or true.... so I come to a place that will enlighten me with ppl who Know More.... I love trees btw....6
