Jobless veterans say military experience is not valued
Rick Combs, a 27-year old who retired as a Sergeant in the Army, says he was given management training in the military as part of becoming a Sergeant. So far, that training has not translated into a comparable private-sector job.
Your writer doesn’t seem to have any knowledge of the military.
No one who is 27 years old can retire from the Army. One must serve a full 20 years to qualify for “retirement.” I doubt Combs joined at 7 years of age.
So, pal, what do you do for a living?
What do I DO? I am FABIO!
I am an actor and a model!
Oh! Have I seen you in anything?
Probably. I played the Handsome Man in “Scenes from a Mall,” the Blind Date in “Boogies Diner,” and I have done numerous cameos.
No. The short kind.
Hmmmm. You do look familiar.
I am also a spokesman.
Spokesman, huh? For what?
I can’t believe it’s not butter.
What, this stuff on our plate isn’t butter?
No. I am a spokesman for I can’t believe it’s not butter!
Ah, I don’t watch much TV.
Do you read? I write books and my bare chest is on the covers! Perhaps you have read “Rogue,” “Comanche,” “Viking…”
So, Blog Guy, as a keen observer of the political scene, what’s your take? Can Herman Cain be elected president at this point?
Because of the….
Exactly. Because of his name.
Now I’m confused. His name?
Of course. What did you think I meant? Check out the U.S. Bill of Rights, and you’ll see that nobody named Lemuel, Enoch or Herman is allowed to become president.
Commonwealth steps up polio fight, Afghanistan war hinders
SYDNEY (Reuters) – Commonwealth leaders on Saturday vowed to step up the fight against polio, but said the Afghanistan war was hindering the fight and warned that without total eradication there could be a resurgence of the crippling disease.
Polio remains in just four countries, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Nigeria — all members of the Commonwealth.
Blog Guy, I’m a fed-up, angry American. Enough is enough!
You must mean the Kardashians?
Of course! They’re everywhere! Now the mother has written her “memoirs,” and that daughter that got married like a week ago has already filed for divorce. How many of them are there, anyway?
Blog Guy, with the 2012 presidential campaign now underway, I’m surprised nobody is covering the goat angle.
