[quote]Every union contract is signed by management/administration. That's who should be fired.
Well as we can see not signing the contract or disagreeing allows them to bring much of the states business to a halt.

Alot of this movement in the army has to do with trying to emulate the Marine Corps CFT. The Marine Corps however has chosen to keep its PFT (3 mile run, pull ups, crunches) and incorporate the CFT in the other half of the year.
The army seems like it is doing something right here though as they...

[quote]The emancipation proclamation
did absolutely nothing[/quote]
It did more than nothing, as British papers wrote at the time, and as many then saw it, it promoted a Haiti style slave revolt behind Southern lines. It may have been a good military tactic by lincoln, but it was far from the...

[quote]t's not an entitlement, they work for it. It's a benefit of employment. They are no less entitled to the retirement plan than they are for their paycheck.
