When the veterans who served their country are retired after 3 or more years of service, they are excellent possible employees for some business.
There is such a sad feeling in this country now that our government seems to have completely failed us. The Occupy Movement is the 99 Percenters Response to that failure.
Trump never exhibited any of the basic skills of a skilled negotiator, it's only been about using the lowest, crudest and most unprincipled tactic that criminal types have in their arsenal...extortion.
PlanetPOV is hosting a live chat to accompany tonight's final presidential debate, unofficially the official debate watching format of Sanity. A lively, witty, insightful conversation is in store for you tonight, we hope you can join us!
