You would have to pay me to go out today

to anywhere other than a grocery store or restaurant, or desperate need for something.

No, I do not consider "I WANT IT FOR THAT PRICE!" to be desperate enough.

I think the mornings' discussion will center on this brainless PC-at-any-cost fool.  Who has somehow stayed ambulatory and breathing long enough to get into a college.
Senior Oliver Friedfeld and his roommate were held at gunpoint and mugged recently. However, the GU student isn’t upset. In fact he says he “can hardly blame [his muggers].”
“Not once did I consider our attackers to be ‘bad people.’ I trust that they weren’t trying to hurt me. In fact, if they knew me, I bet they’d think I was okay,” 
“Who am I to stand from my perch of privilege, surrounded by million-dollar homes and paying for a $60,000 education, to condemn these young men as ‘thugs?’” asks Friedfeld. “It’s precisely this kind of ‘otherization’ that fuels the problem.”
Got that?  Recognizing that armed robbers are, well, ARMED ROBBERS is 'otherization'.  Noting that thugs who use weapons and fear to steal are thugs, well, that makes YOU the bad guy.

Jesus wept.  These people really are fucking insane.

Speaking of insanity,
When it comes to Department of Defense doctrine on military treatment of detained persons, “unlawful enemy combatants” are a thing of the past. That term has been retired and replaced by “unprivileged enemy belligerents” in a new revision of Joint Publication 3-13 on Detainee Operations, dated November 13, 2014.
Because word games are more important than, say, ROE more concerned with winning than with making the enemy happy.

“unprivileged enemy belligerents”
These folks aren't holding up a begging sign at the freeway off-ramp.
They. Want. To. Kill. You.

Are we going to provide them with Obamacare and welfare payments? Seems like the right thing to do.
After all... They only just Want. To. Kill. You.

They need be told. "If you like your RPG, you can keep your RPG."
(until they find out it's a lie)
Maybe that will piss them off enough to turn in to "unlawful enemy combatants" again.
