Would this be the Senate that contained something like 45-50
Democrats? None of whome could be inveigled into signing on?

Yeah, that's weird, isn't it? Tom Dashchle (sp) directed that no

senator
sign.

What are we talking about? It'd be nice if enough of the original topic

had
been retained so that we wouldn't have to ask.

George Z.


Sorry. the subject was the certification of Florida electors in 2000.

Walt


So, the comment about Daschle would have referred to something like what

Denny
Hastert did with the discharge petition for the vote on concurrent receipt

which
got only ONE Republican vote from the entire House? Or doesn't one size fit

all
when it comes to politics.....nasty when the Dems do it in the Senate, but

OK
when the Repubs do it in the House? Sounds like a case of the whines to me.



What are you talking about?


Nothing....I'm too tired to bother trying to restate my views. Next case.

George Z.

That's not the same as you claimed originally. What Marine unit were you in?

At a guess FMF, REMF Supply Battalion. And of course a rifleman
by courtesy at least.

My claims have been consistent.

I was at Parris Island from 11/12/73 to 2/11/74. I had ten days leave and
seven days transit time before I had to report to Intantry Training School at
Camp San Onofre -- Camp Pendleton.

Here's a picture I took from San Onofre of Mount Mother****er in 1974:

I graduated from ITS on 4/12/74. I had a follow on school at Portsmouth --
the Sea Duty Indoctrination Course. That was a 4 week course. From McGuire
AFB I flew to Rota, Spain and joined the Marine Detachment of the U.S.S. Simon
Lake.

Here's a picture of the Lake:

Here's a picture I took in the Marine Detachment in 1975. That's Tye Wright
and FiFi King in the foreground. In the left background is Gunnery Sergeant
Carlos Hathcock. Gunny Hathcock killed 93 men in Viet Nam. Some of his real
accomplishments were fictionalized in the movie "Sniper."

Here's a picture I took on a CAX at 29 Palms in 1983:

Here I am at the Marine Corps Ball in 1983:

Oh. Here's a picture of my Porsche 928:

Is that enough?

Let's asume you actually talked to a recruiter did it ever occur to you he
was
not in a position where he could tell you to violate the law?


Nope.

It did,



You sure about htat?


Well since you eliminated what the response was given to I'm sure my
response to the comment originally presented that you cut away was correct.


Easily corrected:

I turned 18 in 1973 also. I asked my recruiter if I should register and he
said not to worry about it.

You recruiter told you to break the law and you did? It becomes
clearer with each posting why think the way you do.


Unless they changed the law back in the 70s, in my day the law
didn't require you to registerin my day the law didn't require
you to register if you had volunteered and were waiting for your
reporting date.



It did, you didn't have to register between 1975 until 1980, when Jimmy
Carter got concerned about the Soviet's in Afghanistan.

*******

Now, are you sure that the law did require Walt to register for the draft
after he had volunteered and was waiting for his reporting date?
