Re: “The Sunday open line

From the nationally distinguished veterans blog, This Ain't Hell,

Service members currently deployed to Afghanistan were devastated when they learned that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and her entourage of congressmen had cancelled their planned visit this past weekend, sources confirmed today.

President Donald Trump halted the congressional delegations trip seemingly in response to Pelosi suggesting the president cancel or delay his State of the Union address, citing security concerns. The bus filled with congressman was stopped at the way to Joint Base Andrews where military aircraft were prepared to carry the representatives to Afghanistan.

Its terrible, Staff Sgt. Paul Morin said. They were going to cancel the vehicle inspection so we could all go shake her hand for six seconds, but then we had to clean all the vehicles three times.

Its a shame, Sgt. 1st Class Mark Klages said. Morale has gotten get pretty low around here with the holidays being over, the awful weather, the ANAs incompetence and our confusing strategy, but it would have helped a lot to be talked at by an old lady from San Francisco.

Some service members seemed confused as to who the current House speaker actually is.

Pelosi? Of course Im upset she didnt come, Sgt. Frank Lauer said. Shes the hot Puerto-Rican one right?

They were going to get an exhaustive, in depth tour of Afghanistan too, Capt. Christopher Yu said of the oncoming delegation. The air field, the chow hall, the hangar where we keep the drones we still have control over, the briefing room, the other chow hall. They were going to get to talk to soldiers and airmen who arent allowed to leave the wire and the seven Afghans who still have the clearance to come in here. I dont know how theyre going to be able to make any decisions about a country we have been in for seventeen years without that experience.

The outrage over the canceled trip extended to the top of the chain of command.

Ill be honest, the commander of Operation Resolute Support, Army Gen. Austin S. Miller, said. I am upset. I was looking forward to giving all those congressmen my assessment of the situation and my guidance moving forward but now I suppose Ill have to do a video conference or send it in an e-mail.

Congressional delegation fact-finding missions to wartime theaters have a long tradition of effectiveness. The trajectory of the Vietnam War was changed in 1965 when Sen. George Romney was brainwashed by the Phoenix Program, and in 2006, the Iraq Study Group certified the country as a stable democracy after a layover at Al Asad Air Base.

Somewhere in heaven, Bob Hope is on a golf course laughing his ass off.

Re: “Friday: News roundup and open line

When the Arkansas Dem Gaz stops home delivery to parts of Arkansas, they will charge the same rate as for 7-day a week home delivery for computer on-line access - not to be confused with Dem Gaz provided iPad access and Sunday home delivery. That does not seem equitable but that does not matter to their unrelenting circulation department. Locally, we have the option of subscribing to the Commercial on-line at a fair cost; however, who wants two-day old news. I encourage other Dem Gaz readers in this category who believe the pricing is not justified to communicate their displeasure with the Dem Gaz hierarchy.

Re: “Chihuahua recovering from shooting by deputy

Probably Vanessa unless its donated. Regardless, a judge should compel the shooter to pay in addition to banning them from having a firearm.

Re: “Chihuahua recovering from shooting by deputy

Is the Faulkner County Prosecutor going to file animal cruelty charges against the sonovabitch who shot the dog? They would if it were you or I. If not, I invite all to join me in submitting a criminal complaint.

Re: “Democrat-Gazette print circulation shrinkage draws closer to Little Rock

Oh yeah Sound, and just what is my parrot supposed to do for the bottom of his cage? As for the Rolling Stones song, in 69' I was preoccupied with a bump in the road called Vietnam. How about Frank's, "I did it my way".

Re: “Democrat-Gazette print circulation shrinkage draws closer to Little Rock

No disagreeing "declining circulation" is a way of life with the current generation doing everything electronically. Another contributing factor is when good local newspapers are gobbled up by a conglomerate whose only interest is to milk them dry then toss them aside - as many in the business say is the case with the Pine Bluff Commercial, staff is reduced and they have to rely on content from other newspapers to fill space. If I wanted to read liberal Washington Post editorials and political cartoons, I would subscribe to the Washington Post. A major contributing factor to declining Commercial circulation is their turn to imported liberal content because I have heard it from more than a few former readers. We did not plan to renew because the Commercial is a shell of it's former self and we are tired of the liberal crap; and was actually lobbying for the Dem Gaz to expand local coverage and hopefully increase readership. But now the Dem Gaz may have thrown the Commercial a short life line and hopefully they will increase staff and bring back readers.
