    I love it. I feel this way in Monday mornings walking through the sales area in my office.

    My apologies I had seen a photo with him in the backround and that quote saying he said it I figured it meant he originally said it. Obviously us boys up north don't have the same rules :oops:

    The day I found out mad dog would be our SOD I fucked a female marine. Afterwords we sang the hyme and I orgassmed to the halls of montezuma. Following that I ate a pack of crayons and headed to the gun range. Where I outshot every mother fucker there using a 5.56 nato round out of a m16 with iron sights. Because we’re marines and we’re better then thou.

    HOW MATTIS SPENT HIS BIRTHDAY WEEKEND IS THE DEFINITION OF SERVICE

    Secretary of Defense James Mattis turned 68 this weekend.

    The legendary Marine chose to celebrate his birth in a stereotypically Mattis way: by visiting troops in a dangerous war zone. Mattis made a surprise trip to Afghanistan on September 7th, just a day before his birthday. The purpose of the unannounced visit was to meet with troops and commanders on the ground in the war-torn capitol of Kabul.

    The Department of Defense announced the trip, coinciding with Mattis’s birthday weekend, via Twitter. Mattis made the trip as part of a larger Department of Defense tour of countries in the greater region.

    Mattis was joined by United States Army command sergeant major John Troxell and Chairman of the Joint Chief’s Gen. Dunford on the trip. During the unannounced trip, Mattis spoke to the troops and signed memorabilia and flags for the soldiers.

    The photos of Mattis’s birthday trip are a powerful reminder of what the definition of service is.

    James Mattis was born on September 8, 1950, in Pullman, Washington. Of his 68 years on earth, over 40 of them have been spent in the service of his country.

    How Mattis Spent His Birthday Weekend Is The Definition Of Service

    My experience consulting for several startup technical companies over the years is the board members are universally clueless about what's going on. They call meetings on scheduling and we technical people tell them what they want to hear or look elsewhere for work (I've been fired more than once for explaining why something is a bad idea).

    So it looks like Mattis exchanged his influence with the military for a post retirement seat on the board. Not that it's morally acceptable, but it's the American way. Ask any congressman.

    I did get a kick out of Vox's representation of "Hilary Clinton's Campaign" as "unwise" for helping bilk investors with a fund raiser for the corporation months after the fraud was known. So Hilary was unwise and Mattis corrupt. The media is always good for a laugh.
