Now the healthcare vote has been moved to Sat or Sun...so this story will be reported in the media until the vote is passed or not I wonder.
Here's the deal....
The big story here is the suspect is not dead
And the FEDS were investigating this guy over 6 months ago....
Regarding some types of bomb threats....
I thought the tours of duty in WWII were a lot longer than 12 or 18 months. With training and deployments, I thought some men were away from their families for almost 4 years, and they didn't have the luxury of phone cards and the internet to keep in touch with their families.
No, I’m not remembering it wrong. If you google the net, you will find many references to the 1945-1960 dates.
WWII soldiers did one tour...from the day they signed up until the war was over. My father-in-law went in 1942 and came home in September of 1945. Everyone was an American not a “hyphenated” American.
A lot of people and marketers, real estate businesses, sociologists and so on make up their own categories but the government tells us what it is and that is what the national data (like the GAO)is based on.
‘They’ may have told you something or as you implied are still telling you that but it is wrong.
Some of you seem to be confusing being somewhere besides America with being in combat. Our troops today and even in Vietnam often saw more continuous combat than our guys in WWII.
By the way my father was in from 1939 to 1945 and barely saw America during that time.
The Walter Reed Army Research medical center would be...um...ahem....familiar with mental tampering and conditioning of various kinds...
This guy had issues against the war and was walking around with a gun on a U.S. base? C'mon. They need to review the security policies if there are disgruntled alienated Muslim shrinks walking around with loaded weapons on U.S. bases.
The information is flowing now...
While in Fort Hood he was routinely bad mouthing U.S. policy in Iraq and Afghanistan, and openly calling for the Muslims for strike back.
No, this goes back years and years. I’m 58 and those were the dates I’d always read, heard and discussed by economists and various government officials over the years since the term “baby boomers” was created. I’m not imagining it and I’m not remembering it wrong. Your dates are newer and probably reflect a government effort to make the social security burden that boomers will bring appear to be greater than what it originally was, based on the 1945-1960 dates, so they can more easily justify raising taxes. The reality probably is that those costs are higher due to all the lowlife parasites and immigrants on SSI and SSA that they hadn’t considered some years back.
Anyway, there are much more important things going on at the moment.
Nice talking to you.
Including chat discussion of suicide attacks?
They're taking right in *front* of other officers, multiple times while at Fort Hood.
My numbers are not newer, the generations are defined by birth date going back for many generations, these are the same (official) numbers that I have always heard and they have to be or the boomers would have been the first generation defined as a 15 year period, for one thing those born in 1945 have always been the “silent” generation of 1925 to 1945 (although not always labeled by that term0.
The facts are correct but not according to the article cited. I retract my remarks. Don’t like posters who don’t read the article and insert facts not evident in the story.
Boomers weren’t defined as an entire generation. A generation is considered 25 years, not 19.
Your numbers are newer, and I’m done arguing this with you. When your dates came into being and redefined the BB age range I do not know nor do I care. You go with your dates, I’ll go with mine, and all will be well.
sure they were ... they changed the article. not my fault buddy.
The government does not define generations by 25 year periods and the category that we call boomers has always been 1946 to 1964, the silent generation is 1925 to 1945, the GI generation is 1901 to 1924 etc.
I agree I wouldn’t be recruiting Muslims because the Koran teaches loyalty only to Allah and The Nation ( being all ‘believers)
We live in a OC wirld that most likely will get us all killed
No, it hasn’t been, for the 10th time. You stick with your dates, I’ll stick with mine, and all will be well. You will never change in my mind what I have read and been told for years. You are as much as calling me stupid or feeble-minded through your insistence that those dates never existed as a definition of BB. I’m tired of it and I want you to stop bothering me about it, so take your worship of the census bureau and the government and go away.
All I can do is tell you that you are wrong, the government never used 1945 to 1960 as the boomer birth range. By the way I am not “bothering” you, you posted to me and I answered, you keep posting to me and I respond.
Why GAO Did This Study
BABY BOOM GENERATION
Retirement of Baby Boomers Is Unlikely to Precipitate Dramatic Decline in Market Returns, but Broader Risks Threaten Retirement Security
Highlights of GAO-06-718, a report to congressional committees
The first wave of baby boomers(born between 1946 and 1964) will become eligible for Social Security early retirement benefits in 2008...
“All I can do is tell you that you are wrong.” Well, all I can do is tell YOU that YOU are wrong. You are wrong. I’ve asked you two or three times now to go your separate way with your understanding and I’ll go mine. But no, you must keep insisting I’m wrong. Well, listen, jackass, you can say it until the cows come home and be as juvenile as you wish. That will never make it true. And since you insist on continuing this, here you go: You are wrong. You are wrong. You are wrong. You are wrong. You are wrong. You are wrong. You are wrong. You are wrong.
There now. There’s a good supply of you are wrongs. That should last you and your dim-witted rebuttals for awhile. I’ll give you a fresh supply later or tomorrow if you’re still going on about this.
Sorry pal you posted to me I didn’t post to you, you were wrong, Sarah Palin is a boomer and the United States Government labels the Boomer generation as the one born from 1946 to 1964. I think that you should quit bugging me about this. My original post was correct and your challenge was wrong.
You are wrong.
I’m right about you jumping in and posting to me, I’m right about the Federal Government classifying boomers as those born from 1946 to 1964 and I am right about Sarah Palin being a boomer and I am right about you having a lack of maturity.
You are wrong that boomers were never defined as those born 1945-1960. They still are by most universities, economists, pollsters, agencies and organizations concerned with demographics, taxes, cost of living and a variety of trends that both the public and private sectors concern themselves with. Yes, there are a few who extend it to (not through) 1964 (1964 saw a large drop-off in births), and a few who start it in 1943 because that was the first year that births rose by a multiplier of 1.5 over the previous years. But most use the 1945-1960 span. The GAO is not a non-partisan office, btw. They’re nothing at all like the CBO. They can massage and twist numbers any way they like to arrive at a certain conclusion that, extrapolated, means that SSA and Medi-care taxes should be raised or that SSA must be reformed. It’s called “cooking the books”, for the uninformed and uneducated, such as yourself, who can’t figure that out.
YOU ARE WRONG. Go look it up and then throw your tantrum elsewhere.
Tell it to the government and the Census Bureau. The official generation years for boomers is 1946 to 1964.
As the CBO calls it “Summary and Introduction:
Between 1946 and 1964, some 78 million babies were born in the United States,forming a cohort that has come to be known as the baby-boom generation”
I wouldn’t give them the time of day. As usual, they’re at odds with the rest of the country. You, OTOH, think they’re some kind of “official” God and can’t be wrong and, good heavens, would never try to pull the wool over anyone’s eyes. They do a great job! Just look at their fine work in investigating and removing Hasan from the military.
I guess if the government and the Was-Going-to-be-an-ACORN-Operation-and-May-Well-Still-be Census Bureau tell you to pay more for health insurance, cover illegals and abortions while you’re at it or go to prison for 5 years, you’d do that, too, along with checking your tire pressure to solve the gas price problem.
Government worshippers and toadies like you make me sick. You’re the problem, not the solution.
Wow, you aren’t playing with a full deck are you? It is just an official definition of the boomer years not black helicopters landing in your yard.
Well, I told you to drop it a long time ago. I was fine with that - you go with your dates and I’d go with mine. All would have been well. You’re the one who just couldn’t let it go.
You reap what you sow, jerk.
You tell me to drop what, you started posting to me and you won’t stop. Remember that it is you that jumped in and started posting to me.
By the way welcome to FR.
