    Default Why the purge of top brass

    Never before since Lennon/Stalin (can't remember which one) has there been a great purge of the highest ranking brass,,,mostly on trumped up charges.
    What is your opinion on why this is happening?

    Obama is putting in the cronies that will do what he wants and will not confront him on anything.

    It might be better if you were to name a few people and the trumped up charges your talking about. To me its seems like there has been decades of unaccountability and maybe the time has come for some housekeeping.

    My mom had pneumonia at the end of Sept and spent 9 days in ICU and it really knocked her back. she is still so weak that we pretty much have to watch he all the time to prevent a fall so I haven't had time to even monitor POTUS or the national news very much so could you provide a few more details? I feel a bit like I have been living in a cave somewhere so don't really know what you are talking about. Thanks.

    Really sorry to hear that. I'll send some prayers your way.

    Given the sheer amount of rules and laws that have been passed I highly doubt that anyone and I mean anyone has not broken more than a few. What would be interesting to know is if these persons were not with the current program.

    In regards to the two Generals who cheated on their wife and cards respectively. They put themselves at risk of being turned by foreign espionage officers. It was fair and prudent to get rid of them. In regards to the two navy officers they were selling information on ship movements for the same kind of blackmail material that could have been used as leverage for more state secrets. The rest I will have to look up and see, but for these guys great power came with great responsibility and they failed.
    Ole and Sven are quietly sitting in a boat fishing, chewing and drinking beer when suddenly Sven says, 'I think I'm gonna divorce my wife - she ain't spoke to me in over 2 months.' Ole sips his beer and says, 'Better think it over...women like that are hard to find.'
