|Message:||Oh, me too, Miss Mamie. IF I get the gist
of what is going on here, I would be happy
to "make the signs and march, also".
I lived on Fort Bragg when Jane Fonda came to
town and tried to ride her bottom right down
Bragg Boulevard and onto the base . . . . but,
the Army didn't let let her get very far.
HOWever, that didn't cause her to leave town.
She stayed, with the newpapers in her face....and, that's my point. If you can't
get on a military base to say something, you
CAN say it from OUTside the base. Jane set up
shop downtown in the worst parts of Fayetteville and preached out of the bars and hooker joints.
These are two very different issues . . . but
can be treated in exactly the same way to get a
point across peacefully. I would imagine that
this particular Drill Sergeant has already been
removed, but I "have the right" to be wrong, right? Even if it were an issue for the soldier to be allowed only mail from his immediate family, that message could have been
relayed . Okay, this is Judge BGee's ruling....
" I have ruled for the soldier and this is what
is to happen. The soldier can give the adresses
of THREE persons he can receive mail from. IF
parents are divorced, the first two would be
his mother and father, and the third would be
his fiancee. " Court dismissed. .... (Now,
we ALL know that a civilian judge has no say
in a military matter in almost every situation.)
I can see the Army's side of it to a point, but
not to the point of punishment when trainee is
not aware of said reQUIREment !! Duhhhhh.
Whatta you think, Karen ? Huhhhhhhh?
But, I also know a secret. Been around for a long time militarily. There are a certain group
of "men" who love to cause pain to their fellow
man. They do. So, they walk about LOOKING for
something that will allow them to do that legally. It's nothing new.
Wow, I should have stopped this one after the first paragraph. But, as you can see, I didn't !
