Obamacare By Wayne Allyn Root There are two major political parties in America. I’m a member of the naïve, stupid, and cowardly one. I’m a Republican. How stupid is the GOP? They still don’t get it. I told them 5 years ago, 2 books ago, a national bestseller ago (“The Ultimate Obama Survival Guide”), and in hundreds of articles and commentaries, that Obamacare was never meant to help America, or heal the sick, or lower healthcare costs, or lower the debt, or expand the economy. The GOP needs to stop calling Obamacare a “trainwreck.” That means it’s a mistake, or accident. That means it’s a gigantic flop, or failure. It’s NOT. This is a brilliant, cynical, and purposeful attempt to damage the U.S. economy, kill jobs, and bring down capitalism. It’s not a failure, it’s Obama’s grand success. It’s not a “trainwreck,” Obamacare is a suicide attack. He wants to hurt us, to bring us to our knees, to capitulate- so we agree under duress to accept big government. Obama’s hero and mentor was Saul Alinsky- a radical Marxist intent on destroying capitalism. Alinksky’s stated advice was to call the other guy “a terrorist” to hide your own intensions. To scream that the other guy is “ruining America,” while you are the one actually plotting the destruction of America. To claim again and again… in every sentence of every speech…that you are OBAMACARE, cont’d. on Page 4

healthcare costs (at much higher rates) AND 40 million other people’s costs too (through massive tax increases). So you’re stuck paying for both bills. You are left broke. Brilliant.

Cont’d. from Page 3 “saving the middle class,” while you are busy wiping out the middle class. The GOP is so stupid they can’t see it. There are no mistakes here. This is a planned purposeful attack. The telltale sign isn’t the disastrous start to Obamacare. Or the devastating effect the new taxes are having on the economy. Or the death of fulltime jobs. Or the overwhelming debt. Or the dramatic increases in health insurance rates. Or the 70% of doctors now thinking of retiringbringing on a healthcare crisis of unimaginable proportions. Forget all that. The real sign that this is a purposeful attack upon capitalism is how many Obama administration members and Democratic Congressmen are openly calling Tea Party Republicans and anyone who wants to stop Obamacare “terrorists.” There’s the clue. Even the clueless GOP should be able to see that. They are calling the reasonable people… the patriots…the people who believe in the Constitution…the people who believe exactly what the Founding Fathers believed…the people who want to take power away from corrupt politicians who have put America $17 trillion in debt…terrorists? That’s because they are Saul Alin-

#2) Obamacare was intended to wipe out the middle class and make them dependent on government.

Think about it. Even Obama’s IRS predicts that health insurance for a typical American family by 2016 will be $20,000 per year. But how would middle class Americans pay that bill and have anything left for food or housing or living? People that make $40K, or $50K, or $60K can’t possibly hope to spend $20K on health insurance without becoming homeless. Bingo. That’s how you make middle class people dependent on government. That’s how you make everyone addicted to government checks. Brilliant.

sky-ing the GOP. The people trying to purposely hurt America, capitalism and the middle class…are calling the patriots by a terrible name to fool, confuse and distract the public. Obamacare is a raving, rollicking, fantastic success. Stop calling it a failure. Here is what it was created to do. It is succeeding on all counts.


#1) Obamacare was intended to bring about the Marxist dream — redistribution of wealth.

Rich people, small business owners, and the middle class are being robbed, so that the money can be redistributed to poor people (who vote Democrat). Think about it. If you’re rich or middle class, you now have to pay for your own

#3) As a bonus, Obamacare is intended to kill every decent paying job in the economy, creating only crummy, crappy part-time jobs.

Why? Just to make sure the middle class is trapped, with no way out. Just to make sure no one has the $20,000 per year to pay for health insurance, thereby guaranteeing they become wards of the state. Brilliant.

#4) Obamacare is intended to bankrupt small business, and therefore starve donations to the GOP.

Think about it. Do you know a small business owner? I know hundreds of them. Their rates are being doubled, tripled and quadrupled by Obamacare. Guess who writes 75% of the checks to Republican candidates and conservative causes? Small business. Even if a small business owner manages to survive, he or she certainly can’t write a big check to the GOP anymore. Money is the “mother’s milk” of politics. Without donations, a political party ceases to exist. Bingo. That’s the point of Obamacare. Obama is bankrupting his political opposition and drying up donations to the GOP. Brilliant.

#5) Obamacare is intended to make the IRS all-powerful.

It adds thousands of new IRS agents. It puts the IRS in charge of overseeing 15% of the U.S. economy. The IRS has the right because of Obamacare to snoop into every aspect of your life, to go into your bank accounts, to fine you, to frighten you, to intimidate you. And Obama and his socialist cabal have access to your deepest medical secrets. By law your doctor has to ask your sexual history. That information is now in the hands of Obama and the IRS to blackmail GOP candidates into either not running, or supporting bigger government, or leaking the info and ruining your campaign. Or have you forgotten the IRS harassed, intimidated and per-

secuted critics of Obama and conservative groups? Now Obama hands the IRS even more power. Big Brother rules our lives. Brilliant.

#6) Obamacare is intended to unionize 15 million healthcare workers.

That produces $15 billion in new union dues. That money goes to fund Democratic candidates and socialist causes- thereby guaranteeing Obama’s friends never lose another election, and Obama’s policies keep ruining capitalism and bankrupting business owners long after he’s out of office.

Message to the GOP:

This isn’t a game. This isn’t tiddlywinks. This is a serious, purposeful attempt to highjack America and destroy capitalism. This isn’t a trainwreck. It’s purposeful suicide. It’s not failing, it’s working exactly according to plan. Obama knows what he’s doing. Stop apologizing and start fighting. Oh and one more thing…Conservatives aren’t “terrorists.” We are patriots and saviors. We represent the Constitution and the Founding Fathers. We are the heroes and good guys. Unless you get all this through your thick skulls, America is lost…forever. The scary thing about this message is that the writer could be completely right. As of now we have approximately 49% of the population on some sort of government subsistence. So if they were to get single payer installed it would be 100 percent of the population on government assistance.

Changes to military pay and benefits on Hagel’s to-do list

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel warned Tuesday that troops and their families will be asked to sacrifice on pay and benefits to preserve readiness in an era of tighter budgets. Hagel listed politically-charged changes to compensation and personnel policy as one of his top six Benedict priorities in Arnold reforming the military following the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan as the department gears up to meet new challenges. These globalist-traitors will NOT hesitate to CUT veterans benefits but, they will NOT ever CUT FOREIGN

AID ( their precious sacred cow) THAT is NOT putting  our veterans FIRST or even America FIRST! What is their excuse???? They are ALL (Republican and Democrat) just “bought and paid for” by the status quo establishment (CFR) and unfortunately, Secretary Hagel has no backbone! He is a yes man to the CFR establishment. Some of you vets out there get all giddy that Hagel is a Vietnam Vet. So what! Benedict Arnold was a brave, highly decorated soldier, too! But even HE stepped over the line! If they really want to support the military and America’s veterans, then don’t cut veterans pay or benefits! Why isn’t their precious foreign aid getting cut? Foreign aid is not even in the discussion with these liars and thieves. Attention veterans: Tell Congress and the White House STOP ALL FOREIGN AID! America is broke and it has to deal

President Obama: Impeaching himself. Period. By Ken Blackwell and Bob Morrison, CP Op-ed Contributors The side-by-side comparisons of President Obama’s statements then and now are devastating. Especially the “period.” Period here is no punctuation mark. It’s a way of underscoring the word of the President of the United States. If you like your health care plan, you’ll be able to keep your health care plan, period. No one will take it away. No matter what. June 15, 2009 Am I am sorry that they, you know, are finding themselves in this situation, based on assurances they got from me. November 7, 2013. For President Obama to have made such unqualified assurances to the American people-not once but dozens of times-and for us to learn that he always knew that promise could not be kept-will haunt his presidency. He has impeached himself. The president’s word has been called “the coin of the realm.” Well, we CHARITY

don’t have a realm, and we have far fewer coins these days. But OBAMA, cont’d. on Page 20 ENTERTAINMENT

November 15, 2013 THE MILITARY PRESS 7

Pregnancy fat is not ‘real’ fat right? Some people think losing “pregnancy fat” is not like losing “real fat.” Let me tell you folks, as hard as it is to hear – fat is fat. It’s tough to lose, which is why many mothers struggle with their muffin top after birth. While having a muffin top may only be one of many things on the list of issues post-baby, it definitely is at the top. It requires a level of discipline, patience, persistence and faith to unveil the strong midsection that can exist if you are willing to work hard (really hard) for it.


While pregnant, as well as when you are breastfeeding, you should only be adding about 500 calories a day to your diet. “Eating for 2” is this free-flowing myth that allows the average woman to rack up about an average of 1,000 additional calories way easier than it should be. Start with dropping your calories slowly; 1200 calories seems like the magic number for most women to aim for. This is why, while I am PRO food tracking I am NOT a fan of many of the popular fitness apps available. It will tell you how many calories you should eat for your goal weight. It doesn’t consider how heavy you currently are now,

your current level of activity, or your current struggles. I never just EAT 1200 CALORIES. Especially when active and starting a new program (fitness or food based). Start by dropping 250 calories off where you currently are now. (Fact: Did you know cutting just 100 calories a day will drop 10 lbs a year?) For every plateau you hit, drop another 200-250 calories from your intake. (Average woman post-pregnancy is eating 2,300 calories). You should NOT ever starve yourself. Make healthy. alert choices that align with your goals. Starving yourself is why many people binge eat and are often not successful on their low-calorie intakes. Eventually your metabolism will break down. Progressions in your caloric deficit should be slow, just like running a marathon. You can’t go and run a marathon if you’re not used to it. Start jogging two miles, then five miles… you get the point. Training and eating right have similar logic. Make small progressions, change it up, keep your body guessing and evolving, and listen to it. Next is fitness. I know we would all like to run a mile, eat a carrot and see a 15 pound change on the scale, but that will never happen. Deep core training is needed. This includes cardio as well as weight training. From lifting to plank-

Develop and strengthen your core. Your deepest core muscles, your transverse abdominals are your main focus on get rid of that belly fat. Document everything. While you may not be at a point where you are enjoying taking full body shots of yourself or stepping on the scale, PLEASE DO IT! Store the evidence away and come back to it later. I promise you will appreciate it in the long run. You have to measure yourself. Progress is made where progress is measured! Do understand that muscle gain does impede pounds loss, but the majority of unhealthy fat loss must happen prior to muscle gain. So also take measurements and body fat percentage.

Plan, set and create short term goals

too lofty. Break it down to an average of 8 pounds a month. Whether your child is a newborn or new to middle school, it took longer than a month to gain that weight, it will take longer than a month to lose it. This requires about 2 pounds a week. This allows you to stay on point with your exercise and food intake each day. You will understand and appreciate the value in each of your actions. Short term goals lead to big time successes. Lastly, be faithful to yourself and do not give up! Don’t beat yourself up when you have an unplanned cheat meal. Don’t give up when you eat poorly on a weekend or over eat on a vacation. Don’t give up when you get injuries or blow off the day when you slept poorly. When your husband pisses you off, work kicks your butt, or your children soak up every last ounce of energy you think you possess, please don’t give up. Don’t turn FAT, cont’d. on Page 10

When was the last time you cleaned out your closet? I have recently moved from California to Hawaii and I’m happy to finally have completed setting up my new residence. Moving is one of my least favorite activities, because the once neatly packed drawers and closets become piles of old clothes, papers and various items that I haven’t seen in years. In fact, while unpacking I found clothes hadn’t been able to fit since my son was born (that was 22 years ago)! I have to ask myself, why in the world am I holding on to all of this stuff? Has this happened to you? Some of those old things we keep packed away and lug from one residence to another may not be the only old things that should be disposed of. Thoughts we have in our mind can sometimes clutter our thoughts with things they have happened in our past. Are you still upset about something that happened to you when you were a child, were you rejected or disappointed by someone you loved or trusted, do you feel that you didn’t get something you rightfully deserved? If you

still have an emotional attachment to those things, then you’ve got too much junk in your closet. Time spent dwelling on the past puts your focus in the wrong direction. Life is too short; don’t waste it with toxic emotions like anger, resentment or disappointment. Forgive what you can and seek counseling if necessary, but by all means clear your mind and soul of all the unnecessary baggage and you will see how much higher you will soar. Sherry D. Strothers is a life coach and Lipstick Leader founder. She serves currently as a Chief Warrant Officer in the U.S. Navy with 27 years of active service.

10 reasons to hire a veteran While the tax credits employers can get for hiring military veterans through the Hire Heroes Act of 2011 is a good incentive, there are even better reasons for hiring vets. Here are the top ten reasons to hire a military veteran. Accelerated learning curve

Veterans have the proven ability to learn new skills and concepts. In addition, they can enter your workforce with identifiable and transferable skills, proven in real-world situations.


The military trains people to lead by example as well as through direction, delegation, motivation, and inspiration. Veterans understand the practical ways to manage behaviors for results. They also know the dynamics of leadership as part of both hierarchical and peer structures.

They can grasp their place within an organizational framework, becoming responsible for subordinates’ actions to higher supervisory levels. They know how policies and procedures enable an organization to exist.

Technology and globalization

Because of their experiences in the service, veterans are usually aware of international and technical trends pertinent to business and industry. They can bring the kind of global outlook

and technological savvy that all enterprises of any size need to succeed.


Veterans know what it means to do “an honest day’s work.” Prospective employers can take advantage of a track record of integrity, often including security clearances.

Conscious of health and safety standards

Thanks to extensive training, veterans are aware of health and safety

protocols both for themselves and the welfare of others. On a company level, their awareness and conscientiousness translate into protection of employees, property, and materials.

Triumph over adversity

In addition to dealing positively with the typical issues of personal maturity, veterans have frequently triumphed over great adversity. They likely have proven their mettle in mission critical situations demanding endurance, stamina, and flexibility.



Veterans understand how genuine teamwork grows out of a responsibility to one’s colleagues. Military duties involve a blend of individual and group productivity. They also necessitate a perception of how groups of all sizes relate to each other and an overarching objective.

Diversity and inclusion in action

Veterans have learned to work side by side with individuals regardless of diverse race, gender, geographic origin, ethnic background, religion, and economic status as well as mental, physical, and attitudinal capabilities.

10% Military Discount

Efficient performance under pressure

Veterans understand the rigors of tight schedules and limited resources. They have developed the capacity to know how to accomplish priorities on time, in spite of tremendous stress. They know the critical importance of staying with a task until it is done right.

Respect for procedures

Veterans have gained a unique perspective on the value of accountability.

Kids are curious, they often do things because they are exploring, not because they are willfully breaking a rule. Try redirecting the behavior first, but if that doesn’t work or if the behavior needs to be stopped immediately, give a clear command with a direct logical consequence: “You can write on paper, not on walls.

RIU Palace in Cabo San Lucas is the place to go for business or for vacation By Howard Hian www.Travels-with-Hian.com The flight attendant was handing out immigration forms as I was flying to Mexico. One of the questions: “Business or vacation?” What’s the answer for a travel writer on assignment? My first trip was a family reunion at the RIU Palace in Cabo San Lucas in Baja, California. During the planning phase, everyone agreed that an all-inclusive resort would remove decision making stress, e.g., where to eat, gratuities, daily activities, personal space, beach or pool, etc. Our goals were serious laziness and catching up with siblings. Three months later, I flew to Cancun on a press trip to the RIU Palace Mexico in Playa Del Carmen. Their public relations department wanted to introduce a small group of writers to the newly remodeled resort ($20 million dollars worth). Additionally, we were there to explore the exciting Riviera Maya. Nothing lazy about this trip.

What to Do at the RIU Palace and in Cabo San Lucas

Our family chose to be beach bums; languid mornings at the pool reading, followed by lazy afternoons settled in by the ocean and always laughing and

eating together. My daily regiment included a Mudslide at 11:00 AM at the swim-up bar. Although there are lots of sites/sights to see, our only outings were a water taxi to Los Arcos’ Playa del Amor (Lover’s Beach) for exploring and a shopping excursion into town. The entire experience was the definition of laid back. Note: consider booking a room with a view of the Pacific and Los Arcos, Cabo San Lucas’ signature natural attraction at “Lands End.”

nue, famous for people watching, restaurants, bars and shopping. Our hosts took us on several outstanding excursions. The spectacular archeological site Tulum is not to be missed.

What to Do in Carmen Del Playa and Riviera Maya

The press trip kicked off with an inspection of the “new” RIU Palace Mexico and its nearby sister properties, RIU Yucatan and the RIU Palace. This was followed by “how to” lessons on creating towel art, carving watermelons and mixing cocktails (always a crowd pleaser). Each day we sampled the various restaurants at the resort. One evening, we drove to Playa Del Carmen for a traditional Mayan dinner and afterwards strolled 5th. Ave-


We also visited a Mayan family and village. The highlight was a jungle hike with a finale of rappelling 45 feet into the Jaguar Cenote for a swim. Staying and Playing at RIU RIU rates include food, drinks, gratuities, wi-fi, in-room safe, 24-hour room service, exercise facilities, evening

turndown service, daily/hourly activities, a disco and nightly entertainment. Every room features a liquor dispenser and a refrigerator stocked with water, soft drinks and beer. Treat yourself to a massage at the Renova Spa; there is a fee. There are programs for kids, multiple pools and bars and Jacuzzis. The staff at both places was well trained, friendly and attentive. Food-wise, they have the same restaurants at each of the RIU resorts I visited. There are eight to choose from, ranging from snacks to gourmet dining and 24-hour RIU PALACE, cont’d. on Page 18

At the movies Least Among Saints Writer/actor/director Martin Papazian

Review by Jeri & Jenise Jacquin At the San Diego Film Festival we had the opportunity to see LEAST AMONG SAINTS and experienced something special. The film is written, directed and stars Martin Papazian. It’s the story of Anthony (Papazian), a soldier who has come back from the war a different man. His relationships have failed and he finds himself at the bottom of a beer repeatedly. He meets Wade (Tristan Lake Leabu), a neighbor kid who he takes in. Unhappy about the situation is social worker Jolene (Laura San Giacomo). Anthony discovers Wade wants to find his father and a journey of friendship and healing begins. We had the chance to talk with the director about this amazing film. Tell us where the idea came from? I was inspired by veterans returning home telling stories about the cost and sacrifice that combat has on a soldier physically, psychologically and spiritually. I have seen veteran’s capacity for great acts of compassion. I added a displaced kid that I knew growing up. So

what would happen if two lost and broken souls came together? Could they heal one another? Tell us about the story process? I started writing about a particular Marine I know. I did a fair amount of research based on combat veterans and their experiences too. It’s the emotional journey of these two characters that people relate to ultimately. Many veterans have said that this is an accurate portrayal. In the film there are few combat scenes and flashbacks. Ninetyfive percent of the movie this civilian putting the pieces of his life back together. Did you know many veterans? I met a lot of combat veterans training us for roles and know combat veterans from the Vietnam War. A good friend is an Army Ranger with multiple deployments who came in to over see things so the script developed under his eye. He took me through training to get the sense of the military experience. I read first hand accounts of experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan making that real for myself. Was it difficult to get your film out because of the story line? We were able to get into 21 cities including Los Angeles, New York, and

Chicago. We produced a film about combat veterans, which is not popular in the studio system. We felt the story was important and believed in something proven to have an impact on people’s lives. I think the movie is timeless! Absolutely, all our military personnel aren’t home yet. Yes, we welcome them home but many have lost limbs and sustained injuries needing therapy and facilities to help them. They deserve it serving selflessly and attention should be paid. Most of the military that I’ve met have this great integrity and hope for the future. Thanks Marty, we appreciate your time. It comes down to one man’s finding something greater than himself and a boys chance to succeed in life. Winning three Audience Choice Awards for Best Picture, this film conveys pain, love and healing. From a battlefield or a broken home, the least among us become our saints!

Where’d all the Lakers fans go? By Kevin Ding, and Derick E. Hingle, USA Today Sports The final score at Staples Center on Tuesday night showed aLakers victory, 116-95. Other numbers revealed a devastating Lakers loss. The Lakers’ 320-game home sellout streak ended when Staples wound up 571 spectators shy of the 18,997 capacity for the game against the New Orleans Pelicans. A Lakers game not selling out?! It hadn’t happened for seven years (Dec. 6, 2006 against the Oklahoma City/New Orleans Hornets). That was so long ago that the NBAwas using what wound up as a temporary new microfiber composite basketball— andSmush Parker, Kwame Brown, Luke

Walton and Lamar Odom joined Kobe Bryant in the Lakers’ starting lineup. Nothing so far in this Kobe-less Lakers season—led by an out-of-shape Pau Gasol and a semi-limping Steve Nash— has been as interesting as the Lakers not being able to sell their tickets. It speaks to how dependent the team has become on the star power of Bryant, recovering from his Achilles tear at age 35, and how dangerously close the Lakers are to losing the attention of a local fanbase that loves winners but always has the entertainment industry to turn to anyway. Coincidentally, Forbes published a story about how the Lakers three years ago had an average ticket price on the

secondary market $150 higher than the Clippers—but that margin has been cut to $70 now. The Lakers have dropped behind both the Heat andKnicks in average ticket price on the secondary market. According to TiqIQ.com, you can get a seat for the next Lakers home game Friday night against Memphis for just $20. With another nondescript opponent, Detroit, coming in Sunday night, you can attend that game for $17. The Lakers’ performance Tuesday night was an example of how fans can get some bang for small bucks. Even though the starting lineup of Steve Blake, Jodie Meeks, Wesley Johnson, Jordan Hill and Gasol would look even worse on the marquee than that 2006 group with Bryant, the Lakers rode Hill’s relentlessness and defensive effort to an easy victory.

CHARGERS REPORT By Art Garcia Jr. On January 9, the Chargers began a new era of professional as Chargers President Dean Spanos named former Indianapolis Colts Vice President of Football Operations, Tom Telesco, the team’s new general manager. Having spent the previous 15 seasons serving a variety of capacities with the Colts, Telesco, 40, became the youngest general manager in Chargers history. Recently, Telesco took time from his busy schedule to answer some questions from MP reporter Art Garcia Jr. In the first of a two-part interview, Telesco talks about his experience so far as a first-time general manager, injuries to key players and getting players experience at different positions. AG: So as we talk this team is 4-3 coming off the bye week – what’s you’re assessment of this team as you head into the strength of your schedule? TT: You know we’re not satisfied with being 4-3 but we’re encouraged with the results and the improvement we’ve seen week after week, that’s been the good thing. AG: This is your first year as a general manager, what did you do to the

Interview with General Manager Tom Telesco

‘football gods’ that they would strike this team with so many injuries at key positions? TT: You know what, they (injuries) happen everywhere. Whether you’re a fan of us or you work here – you always think that it’s always worse on us than everyone else because you see it every day but it happens everywhere. You always try to prepare for it going into the season and it always seems like it hits at specific positions where you get multiple guys at one position – like this year at receiver and offensive line have been two big ones for us. But you have to make do with it and this is one of those years when we need all 53 plus some – we’ll use more than 53 players this year to get through. We knew going in that there would be some adversity but everyone does and you have to make do with it. AG: It was reported that last year with the Indianapolis Colts you guys went through some 36 guys from the start of the season until the end; do you think you might top that number this year? TT: We probably did (go use that many plays), but I don’t know (about

surpassing those numbers), I’m not keeping track of those numbers. AG: Have you ever experienced the kind of sweeping injuries that you guys are having this season before? TT: I’ve been on teams with a lot of injuries before. The offensive line this year, as far as the amount of combinations we’ve used of those starting first five – I don’t know if I’ve seen that before. But it’s a testament to the offensive line, the players and the coaches as far as getting guys ready to play as we saw in the Jacksonville game. Even through training camp we worked a lot of guys at other positions just preparing if some guy gets hurt we have to be versatile enough to move a guy into a different spot. DJ (Fluke) was the one guy that, since he was a rookie, we wanted to get him into one spot to get him comfortable working at one spot – so he was probably the one guy who didn’t as much at other positions. But he flipped over (from right tackle to left tackle) and played a great game against the Jaguars – so it’s been a pretty unique year so far.

AG: So had you done that before where you rotated players at different positions to get them experience prior to a season? TT: I think most teams do… with the 53-man roster you usually have, on the offensive line, on average maybe eight as far as active – on your active roster eight to nine sometimes, we have 10 right now because of injuries. If you’re going to go into the season with just eight linemen you do have to make sure they can play different spots just in case you have to mix-and-match CHARGERS, cont’d. on Page 18

Realistic training now saves lives later Story and photo by Douglas Aguillard It started with a Staff Sergeant from the Metrological Department giving the weather update to the group of Huey pilots. Wind direction, temperatures throughout the day, the angle of the sun, etc. It was very precise. I was sitting in on the early morning mission briefing. The room was quiet except for the speaker. Everyone, including pilots and crew chiefs, playing attention and taking notes. Then it was the Maintenance and Supply Officer’s turn to speak. He time stated which helicopters were flying, what part might be missing from each aircraft and how much ammunition was on board each Huey. Finally it was time for the Mission Brief. Given were the targets, the location, how the mission would be run, and where the resupplying would take place. Then we were ready to board the UH-1Y Huey. As we took off from MCAS Yuma, we flew northwest over the Colorado River, the border between Arizona and California, and shortly thereafter entered the Chocolate Mountains of California and its bombing range. We would be supporting both infantry and artillery units on the ground. Twice a year, pilots, weapon system operators, ground combat and combat support service officers from throughout the Marine Corps come to Yuma to take part in a course designed to hone battlefield knowledge and expertise. The biannual training, held in the spring and in the fall, is known simply by the Marines who have attended it as WTI, which stands for Weapons and Tactics Instructor course. It is the only training of its kind. “WTI helps build communication and training relationships between pilots and troops on the ground performing such tasks as transporting troops and providing close-air support,” said

Gunnery Sgt. Dunk of the public affairs office at MCAS Yuma. “Students in the course can take what they’ve learned back to their units to use as a training tool.” I watched the Huey’s two Crew Chief/Gunners ready their weapons. On the port (left) side of the Huey was a .50 caliber Browning machine gun, and on the starboard (right) side was the 7.62 GAU17/A Gatling gun attached to a 40,000-round ammunition box. We were flying over the mountain tops at approximately 150 to 180 mph, and would suddenly dive into the canyons, where it felt like one

could touch the sides of the mountains with your hands.

Built by Pardee Homes, Sorrento Ridge and its sister project, Sorrento Terrace, which is now sold out, offer home buyers seven one- and two-story floor plans priced from the high $300,000s. “There were three great reasons why we bought at Sorrento Terrace,” said Alan Adler. “The first thing that impressed me was the quality of construction from Pardee; then the location and price. We love that the area is so quiet and also enjoy coming home to see the sunsets every day. We are looking forward to enjoying the pool, spa and barbecue.” As first-time buyers, the Adlers had no idea how the buying process worked, but were pleased with the entire experience. “The sales staff was amazing, explaining everything and always there to answer our questions,” said Adler. “Customer service has also been great, providing very good service.” Although Sorrento Terrace is sold out, Sorrento Ridge offers home shop-

PROHIBITION ERA TIMELINE The Prohibition Era in the United States has a storied past beginning with various temperance movements in the 1830s and finally culminating with the passage of the 18th amendment. However, the success was short-lived and the 18th amendment was repealed thirteen years later with the passage of the 21st amendment. Learn more about this historic period in American social history with this timeline.

1830s: Temperance Movements begin advocating for abstinence from alcohol. 1847: The first prohibition law is passed in Maine (although a prohibition law had previously passed in the Oregon territory). 1855 : 13 states have enacted prohibition legislation. 1869: The National Prohibition Party is founded. 1881: Kansas is the first state to have prohibition in its state constitution. 1890 : The National Prohibition Party elects its first member of the House of Representatives. 1893 : The Anti-Saloon League is formed. 1917: The US Senate passes the Volstead Act on December 18th which is one of the significant steps to the passage of the 18th amendment. 1918 : The War Time Prohibition Act is passed to save grain for the war effort during World War I.

1919: On October 28th the Volstead Act passes the US Congress and establishes the enforcement of prohibition. 1919: On January 29th, the 18th amendment is ratified by 36 states and goes into effect on the federal level. 1920s: The rise of bootleggers such as Al Capone in Chicago highlight the darker side of prohibition. 1929: Elliot Ness begins in earnest to tackle violators of prohibition and Al Capone’s gang in Chicago. 1932: On August 11th, Herbert Hoover gave an acceptance speech for the Republican presidential nomination for president in which he discussed the ills of prohibition and the need for its end. 1933 : On March 23rd, Franklin D. Roosevelt signs the Cullen-Harrison Act which legalizes the manufacture and sale of certain alcohol. 1933 : On December 5th, prohibition is repealed with the 21st amendment.

Organized Crime & Prohibition

“The reign of tears is over. The slums will soon be a memory. We will turn our prisons into factories and our jails into storehouses and corncribs. Men will walk upright now, women will smile and children will laugh. Hell will be forever for rent.” Reverend Billy Sunday delivered this quotation during a speech at the beginning of prohibition. Many people believed and hoped that prohibition would make the above true. However, as they watched and waited, they realized that nothing was improved, and somehow, things had gotten worse. These statistics below detail how much worse crime got: Police funding: increased $11.4 Million Arrests for Prohibition Las Violations: increased 102+% Arrests for Drunkenness and Disorderly Conduct: increased 41% Arrests of Drunken Drivers: increased 81% Thefts and Burglaries: increased 9% Homicides, Assault, and Battery: increased 13% Number of Federal Convicts: increased 561% Federal Prison Population: increased 366% Total Federal Expenditures on Penal Institutions: increased 1,000% “Not only did the number of serious crimes increase, but crime became organized. Criminal groups organize around the steady source of income provided by laws against victimless crimes such as consuming alcohol or drugs, gambling and prostitution. In the process of providing goods and services those criminal organizations resort to real crimes in defense of sales territories, brand names, and labor contracts. That is true of extensive crime syndicates (the Mafia) as well as street gangs, a criminal element that first surfaced during prohibition.” “The contributing factor to the sudden increase of felonies was the organization of crime, especially in large cities. Because liquor was no longer legally available, the public turned to gangsters who readily took on the bootlegging industry and supplied them with liquor. On account of the industry being so profitable, more gangsters became involved in the money-making business. Crime became so organized because “criminal groups organize around the steady source of income provided by laws against victimless crimes such as consuming alcohol. As a result of the money involved in

the bootlegging industry, there was much rival between gangs. The profit motive caused over four hundred gang related murders a year in Chicago alone.” Bootleg alcohol is what fueled the work of Organized crime. Most of the men involved in the Mafia or gangs were young immigrants. The business of bootleg alcohol was highly profitable for everyone involved which often fueled the Mafia or gang wars. By the late 1920’s more than 1 million gallons of bootleg liquor had been illegally brought into the United States. Most of the alcohol came in ei$ ther through Canada or from ships that were lo$ cated just beyond U.S. $ waters. However, there was alcohol being produced legally in the United States that was also being bootlegged. Most of the alcohol being produced for use in manufacture often ended up being bootlegged. We will look more at bootleg alcohol, speakeasies and other forms of illegal alcohol as we look at life for the average American.

She then says, feeling that she has made her point clear, “What do you have to say about this experiment?” The child responds by saying: “If I drink whiskey, I won’t get worms!”

Accident in the air

A plane was taking off from Kennedy Airport. After it reached a comfortable cruising altitude, the captain made an announcement over the intercom. “Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. Welcome to Flight number 293, non-stop from New York to Los Angeles. The weather head is good and, therefore, we should have a smooth and uneventful flight. Now sit back and relax... OH, MY GOD!” Silence followed, and after a few minutes, the captain came back on the intercom and said, “Ladies and Gentlemen, I am so sorry if I scared you earlier. While I was talking to you, the flight attendant accidentally spilled a cup of hot coffee in my lap. You should see the front of my pants!” A passenger in Business class yelled, “That’s nothing. You should see the back of mine!”

Just for Laughs Sergeant from hell

A drill sergeant had just chewed out one of his cadets, and as he was walking away, he turned to the cadet and said, “I guess when I die you’ll come and pee on my grave.” The cadet replied, “Not me, Sarge…no sir! I promised myself that when I got out of the Army I’d never stand in another line!”

Experiment gone a’rye’


A mother was teaching his child about the side-effects of alcohol. She gets two short glasses, filling one with water and the other with whiskey. She says “I want you to see this.” She puts a worm in the water, and it swims around. She puts a worm in the whiskey, and the worm dies immediately.

Not your average blonde

A stranger was seated next to a blonde on an airplane when the strange turned to her and said, “Let’s talk. I’ve heard that flights go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger. The blonde, who had just opened her book, closed it slowly and said to the stranger, “What would you like to talk about?” “Oh, I don’t know,” said the stranger, “How about nuclear power?” and he smiles. “Ok,” she said. “That could be an interesting topic. But let me ask you a question first. A horse, a cow and a deer all eat the same stuff — grass. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty, and a horse produces clumps of dried grass. Why do you suppose that is?” The stranger, visibly surprised by the blonde’s intelligence, thinks about it and says, “Hmmm, I have no idea…” To which the blonde replies, “Do you really feel qualified to discuss nuclear power when you don’t know crap?”

benefits, especially their GI insurance. It wasn’t long before Captain Smith noticed that Airman Jones was having a staggeringly high success-rate, selling insurance to nearly 100% of the recruits he advised. Rather than ask about this, the Captain stood in the back of the room and listened to Jones’ sales pitch. Jones explained the basics of the GI Insurance to the new recruits, and then said: “If you have GI Insurance and go into battle and are killed, the government has to pay $200,000 to your beneficiaries. If you don’t have GI insurance, and you go into battle and get killed, the government only has to pay a maximum of $6000. Now,” he concluded, “which group do you think they are going to send into battle first?”

Run, soldier, run

At one Army base, the annual trip to the rifle range had been canceled for the second year in a row, but the semiannual physical fitness test was still on as planned. One soldier mused, “Does it bother anyone else that the Army doesn’t seem to care how well we can shoot, but they are extremely interested in how fast we can run?”

Method to the madness

By the time a Marine pulled into a little town, every hotel room was taken. “You’ve got to have a room some-

where,” he pleaded. “Or just a bed, I don’t care where.” “Well, I do have a double room with one occupant, a Navy guy,” admitted the manager, “and he might be glad to split the cost. But to tell you the truth, he snores so loudly that people in adjoining rooms have complained in the past. I’m not sure it’d be worth it to you.” “No problem,” the tired Marine assured him. “I’ll take it.” The next morning the Marine came down to breakfast brighteyed and bushy-tailed. “How’d you sleep?” Asked the manager. “Never better.” The manager was impressed. No problem with the other guy snoring, then?” “Nope, I shut him up in no time.” Said the Marine. “How’d you manage that?” asked the manager. “He was already in bed, snoring away, when I came in the room,” the Marine explained. “I went over, gave him a kiss on the cheek, said, ‘Goodnight, beautiful,’ and he sat up all night watching me.”

Not worthy

Three couples went in to see the minister to see how to become members of his church. The minister said that they would have to go without sex for two weeks and then come back and tell him how it went. The first couple was retired, the second couple was middle-aged and the

final couple was newlywed. Two weeks went by, and the couples returned to the minister. The retired couple said it was no problem at all. The middle-aged couple said it was tough for the first week, but after that, it was no problem. The newlyweds said it was fine until she dropped the can of paint. “Can of PAINT!” exclaimed the minister. “Yeah,” said the newlywed man. “She dropped the can and when she bent over to pick it up I had to have her right there and then. Lust took over.” The minister just shook his head and said that they were not welcome in the church. “That’s okay,” said the man. “We’re not welcome in Home Depot either.”

The doctor goes hunting and returns the following day and asks: ”So, Seamus, how was your day?” Seamus told him that he took care of three patients. “The first one had a headache so I gave him Tylenol.” “Bravo, and the second one?” asks the doctor. “The second one had stomach burning and I gave him Malox, sir.” says Seamus. “Bravo, bravo! You’re good at this and what about the third one?” –asks

the doctor. “Sir, I was sitting here and suddenly the door opened and a woman entered. Like a flame, she undressed herself, taking off everything including her bra, her panties and lied down on the table. She spread her legs and shouted: “HELP ME! For five years I have not seen any man!” For goodness sakes Seamus, what did you do?” – asks the doctor. “I put drops in her eyes.”

Government Babel

The reason the Air Force, Army, Navy and Marines bicker amongst themselves is that they don’t speak the same language. For instance, Take the


simple phrase “secure the building.” The Army will post guards around the place. The Navy will turn out the lights and lock the doors. The Marines will kill everybody inside and set up a headquarters. The Air Force will take out a fiveyear lease with an option to buy.

Cont’d. from Page 7 You see, people are not as you see them; people are as YOU are. What do you get when you smile at someone? You get a smile back. And if you stare at someone? You get a stare back. What you get is what you are. We’re NOT an objective observer of the people in our life; we’re a subjective influence. In other words, our presence changes what we observe. Let me give you a simple example. Let’s say you wanted to measure the temperature in a small room. So you bring a thermometer into the room and wait for a reading. But since your body temperature is 98.6 degrees, the fact that you’re in the room changes the reading you get. As long as you’re there, things are different. It works the same in your marriage. Your relationship is not simply a function of who you pick; it’s also a function

of who you are. I offer a free report called ‘7 Secrets for a Stronger Marriage’ to anyone who signs up on my web site. There’s no catch. It’s totally free and there’s some very useful marriage advice for anyone who subscribes. (One subscriber even said, ‘I have learned more about my marriage from your free info than I have from the therapist we’ve been seeing.) Here’s an email exchange I had with a NEW subscriber. I think it proves my point. The first email I received from her was entitled ‘Free my rear end,’ and she wrote as follows: ‘You put on your website free counseling and then you try to sell me your book. Even if your book was the end all be all I wouldn’t buy it because you already lied. There’s nothing free; just ‘buy my book. That’s hardly the way to build trust in your potential customers. I’m glad your wife likes you. I don’t.’ Laurie
