It depends on the school and a lot on the instructors. I had 2 great JROTC instructors who were MPs. The one who was an officer ran the classroom and academic portions and the enlisted ran the PT components and ethics training. It was a worthwhile thing to do during high school that was centered around community service and loyalty to the nation. We had our share of fuckups in the program but the good outweighed the bad. Those who joined just for the PE credit to graduate high school were a waste of space. Those who joined because they appreciated being part of a regimented, hierarchical organization with a deep commitment to nation and community excelled.

I don't really keep up with him. I did see a video where he threw the engagement ring which he called something clever like "The Sodomy Stone" into the ocean. Does the guy still live in the same house as Milo?

The Alamo is where Texians and Tejanos stood their ground to defend the Mexican constitution of 1824 against the dictator Santa Anna. Texas declared independence as the last holdout defending the lawful constitution of Mexico and used the Russia strategy of retreating until the enemy supply lines were stretched to the limit and then bum rushed the Mexican Army at San Jacinto. Santa Anna was captured just after trying to escape wearing a private's uniform. Sam Houston spared him and negotiated the Treaty of Velasco which was something that was kept secret from the Mexican public because Santa Anna thought it would be a public disgrace. The Mexican-American war didn't occur until over 10 years later after Texas, having spent the 10 years as an independent nation, agreed to annexation by the United States. Mexico at this point preferred the buffer state between them and the United States. The tension created by this annexation led to the Mexican American war which ended with the treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo which included the annexation of the northern Mexican territories from New Mexico to California and as far north as Utah. This is off the top of my head so I may have a few things wrong but the main beats are correct.

Any amount of prepping you do without a gun is just collecting supplies for the first guy that comes along with one.

Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, Oswald Mosley, Joseph Goebbels, that Romanian one I can never remember, Leon Degrelle, Italo Balbo, George Lincoln Rockwell, and I think one is a Bulgarian guy who I also can't remember the name of. Balbo looks like he is having a damn good time here.

I didn't recognize where the picture was from. I completely forgot about the insanity that was chaz and didn't see that it was from the communal garden of failure.

I don't know how many people here actually garden and grow their own food but this sort of wilting is expected if an immature plant fails to receive watering for just a single day if you live in a hot climate. Speaking from central Texas. Growing food requires the soil to be constantly damp. These plants still are green and have uniformly colored leaves so, in my incredibly dumb mind, they will recover if they just receive water for a day or two. Perhaps we have no future in society, but I never liked society anyways. If the city dwellers develop a society where men in skinny jeans are ridiculed once more I will happily associate with society once more. Until then, I agree, I have no place in this society and I'm just fine with that.

The well on my land was dug before I was born but if there is one thing I know it's that it pays during dry times to have a well deeper than your neighbors. Only works in some situations but my area has 2 layers of cave underneath. Most people go down to the first cave and tap that water but my well goes straight down to the deeper cave system. Cleaner taste and has never run low even with neighbors were having to ration themselves.

I honestly can't stand boyfriend and girlfriend either when you're talking about adults. When talking about my woman I say just that, MINE. She refers to me as hers too. Don't leave any wiggle room. When you're in a stable relationship the man/woman you're with is YOURS and if anyone has a problem with that being "too possessive" then they certainly ain't someone you want to consider spending the rest of your life with.

A well drilled 120 feet into the ground behind my house. Groundwater filtered through limestone. Can't get any better than that.

Wasn't that just the end of Battlestar Galactica?
