    I guess our family was blessed. Of the 5 that went to WW2, 4 made it home. None of them never spoke of it and all 5 were proud to have served.

    T brought up the depression. That's a whole other topic.

There are real lessons to learn from our nation's history. I stand by my claim that we are blessed to be in the greatest nation, at the most fortunate time, and embrace the opportunity to build an even brighter future. I have faith in America and my children. I serve God and respect my country and I don't answer to you.
    Sorry, the Greatest Generation did that.

    My dad was in the first integrated Ranger battalion in the US Army in 1945. My boss at my first job after college owed his life 50 times over to Red Tailed P-51 Mustangs flown by black airmen escorting his B-24 Liberator from Sicily through the Brunner Pass en route to bombing Germany. The largely Asian Hawaii National Guard fought alongside the Texas National Guard, composed largely of Scots and Hispanics, in Italy, and was the most decorated unit in WWII. The Navaho code talkers were instrumental in our victory in the Pacific.

    Was it perfect, not at all. But it was the beginning of an integrated military, which by the time I served in 1969-1972 was indeed colorblind.

    Amen to that, VOb. My grandpa was in the Pacific with the Army. My wife's grandpa was a POW in Germany. Saved his whole POW group by being able to understand french language and thwart the Germans from executing them. That generation will never be duplicated. Ever. Thanks for your service...

    Non sports post of the year. Very well done.

    I am NOT a Rush person. I don't listen nor care for him. However, one quote I was told he said years ago is the absolute truth. The purpose of war is to break things and kill people.

    When this country gets backed into a corner, we best get over the PC mess or America is toast. We are still engaged in a PC non declared war since 9/11. It will be a hell of a blow on US soil before we get the intestinal fortitude the greatest generation had. 9/11 didn't do it so wrap your mind around that. And our enemies know this, it's why we are getting little things here and there. Mentally wearing us down the whole time and we're too busy watching Kim and her big butt or waiting on the newest I Phone to realize it.

    Women's rights? Really? Your ignorance is astonishing. The 19th Amendment, giving women the right to vote, was ratified On August 18, 1920. It was the crowning achievement of a movement that had been on-going for over 50 years. My mother is 100 years old, and has never in her adult life been denied the right to vote; and she is both female and First Nations. Lest you also forget that at least half of the greatest generation were female, I suggest you take a look at some real history books and learn about the WAAF, and that "Rosie, the Riveter" was not just a slogan invented by government, but a reflection of the reality that millions of women who had never worked outside the home took "men's" jobs in shipyards and foundries and aircraft plants, and that thousands of urban teen age girls moved in with farm families and worked as farm hands because farm boys from all over the country were busy dying so that you could denigrate their memory.

    Whoaa cowboy. Women's rights were established well before bra burning. Real ___ women went out and earned those by way of rational protests. Nothing was given to them because they simply lacked a Y chromosome.

    I agree with every point you make, but you left out one important point. Government doesn't do anything until it's master let's them do it. We all know who the government's master is...for those that don't...here is a hint. Name the only group of people who actually have it better in today's America.

    No it's not. That Wage Gap bull____ is the reason this country is going down the tubes. First off...that isn't even the wage gap we should be worrying about. Executive wage gap is widening at an alarming rate. But...here you are worrying about poor women...when women are one of the few special interest groups who have it better than most in this country. And it's getting better by the day. Meanwhile...we are on the brink of Automation. Executive salaries already have their matches lit, all they have to do is lean over and light the fuse. But...please...think of those poor women...who make ungodly amounts of money more than they did a decade ago.

    Then why even focus any attention on a small subsection of that group of people, when everyone not an executive is about to be royally screwed, regardless of the sex, creed, religion, height, weight, etc.?

    ---I have posted this on here so many times---When you get to name calling it becomes an AD HOMINEM argument that would be tossed by anybody knowledgeable of debate or discussion---it is a fallacious point and would be immediately tossed---unfortunately it is with high frequency used on here---i sure wish that for say one week the neg crew would state there point no matter how bad but just avoid the attacks on the persons!!!

    Well this thread sure took an unexpected turn.

    Few more posts, and the participants will be debating Louisiana's film subsidy program.

    T brought up the depression. That's a whole other topic.
    Well remember Zoom Zoom, many grew up during the depression with very little then joined the military to serve the country during WII. My father was a forward gunner on a Liberty Vessel, but never spoke about it until the last years of his life. I had four great uncles that served during WII, two brothers in Europe and two from the other side of the family in the Pacific. The two in Europe were awarded metals, one for D-Day, the other in Italy being wounded. None of them every talked to me about those events, I discovered their service looking through my grandmother's photo albums years later.

    Also, if you remained state side during the war most jobs were in defense manufacturing or agriculture in Louisiana. They were asked to ration everything from beef to rubber from tires and fuel. Life wasn't easy for families here during the war unless they were wealthy.

    My mothers family lost their little family dairy in Youngsville during the war because people couldn't afford to pay for milk at times and sometimes getting paid in goods and services just didn't pay their bills. So they turned to share cropping side by side with African-Americans in lower Lafayette Parish and later in St. Martin Parish. Imagine just how shocked they would be to learn just how racist they were to work side by side in the fields with their hands with local minorities.

    1. Women between 30 and 39 make more for the same employment as men.
    2. Women choose to work in many jobs that are lower paying.
    3. As part of 2, women do not apply for jobs where there is high risk for injury or death, where pay for injury or death risk is higher.
    4. Men are more likely to work overtime in order to advance faster, so they do.
    5. Women surveyed way higher than men that they value family life and being home far greater than succeeding in their careers.

    These are facts from recent university studies in the U.S. and the U.K.. The wage gap is a myth. The 79 cent bogus argument doesn't take numerous factors, in addition to those above, into account.
