One of the kids asked me( Not what I did in the Army) How many People I "Snuffed" my answer: "With my own Gun? Or from behind the Controls of my Aircraft?" The Students Answer? "Yo Mista "C" it was like that?" To which I said "It's a real war where people kill each other, not Call of Duty..."

I cringe every time I hear someone ask a police officer or serviceman if they've "ever killed someone", or something along those lines. What makes someone think that it's within their place to ask such a question, often to a stranger, is entirely beyond me. Not only does it come off as sounding incredibly ignorant of the nature of their work, but is also extremely inconsiderate of all parties involved, including the person they're asking, who could possibly not be in the proper mental and emotional state to even think about such events, let alone attempt to explain and justify them to a complete moron.

I had a classmate (who I later became good friends with) in college who did several tours in Afghanistan with the Army and saw his fair share of combat, despite his position as a "regular grunt". He was clearly hesitant to talk about it, but the teacher (who was a former Marine and never saw a day of combat in his life) pressed him about it in front of the entire class (of college freshmen, i.e., children). I blew a f*cking gasket when some idiot in the class interrupted what he was saying to ask how many people he killed. My classmate/friend and the teacher had a certain amount of respect for me after that, and my classmates learned to not ask stupid questions in front of me.

So if your adult child was born here but you are here illegally, you get to stay.  If you were brought to this country before 2010 and are still a minor (17 right?) you get to stay, even though you spent the first 12 years of your life in another country.  And it would be cruel to deport your illegal parents, so they get to stay too.  That's all cool (if you are in this country illegally) but the President doesn't get to do that without a change to the laws of this country by the Congress.  We kind of fought our first war to get out from under a Dictator.

And don't get me started on that idiotic idea of prosecutorial discretion for an entire class of lawbreakers.  If it works for illegals, the next Republican President can do it for OSHA, EPA, IRS, ATF, EEOC, Civil Rights violators, you name it.

+1 for this statement. My biggest concern is the fact that he is refusing to uphold his constitutional mandates as the executive branch. In my view he has taken on acting as not only the executive but also legislative and judicial branches of our government. This is a slippery slope whether you agree or not with the current immigration executive order. No one man should wield such power in our government.

Probably.  The down side to that is less daylight time and less frequent daylight shots.
