        It's just a wide array of Gant MB posters who frequent TAGF andwho might initiate talk about a wide array of other topics, mostly current, on almost anything... just to see how others feel about it. You might see talk on Haiti, Iraq. Afghanistan, gold prices, Lindsay Lohan, Britney, the job market, health, war, peace, personal issues, and even a little Giant's chat.</P>


        It is a thread where trash talk and denigrating others simply does not exist. There is nothing but respect given, regardless of how silly a post might get. We're all adults, and behave that way on here. Keeping this a pleasant place, under control, is just one reason why it is tolerated within TAGF. If you see a posted topicthat interests you, and prompts you to respond, go to it.</P>


        Asian Giant, AG, does an excellent job of interspersing his ideas, remarks, and control of sanity. He is this threads Head Coach. He is pretty dang knowledgeable on a host of topics and does a great job of keeping it all flowing day to day.</P>

          well wrote Zim.

          As a caveat AG is also a Moderator so if any of us gets out of line he will do what needs be done.
          We are given a certain amount of leeway given the spectrum of topics that we discuss....

          Remarkable because some of them are somewhat taboo, but again as Zim stated, we do our best to be mature, respectful and intelligent one to the other.

          Anyone is welcome to join but just bare in mind: maturity, respect, the Golden Rule of Life sort of thing and you'll be fine.

            He's good , Mike Rowe. I 'm abig fan of "The Deadliest Catch". Not sure if I watching the right vid in the link? His Mission statement. There's alot of truth ot what he's saying but I do disagree that we don't have the ability to fix the infrastucture because of lack of skilled workers. They could do it , money is more the issue imo</p>


            GY I think you mentioned you live inChicago? Just a thought but putting your name in at constuctionunion halls might be a consideration. Let them know you are a Vet</p>[/quote]

            I see where money may be more the issue, but there is some merit to the workforce size.
            Many of us have been laid off and things appeared grim for much of 09.

            Now we see there is a slight up-tick in the economy, but nothing as of yet on the unemployment front.
            Many, like me, hope and pray that the positive growth equates to unemployment numbers leveling off then depreciating.

            I for one would jump at the chance to repair a bridge or what have you but you got to get hired first.

            As far as the Union Halls goes.

            No lie, no joke, the Unions in Illinois are very shady. Not all, but many. I petitioned to join the IBEW downtown chicago when I was let go of my job. Haven't heard from them yet.

            While going to trade school, the IBEW came to our school and basically put it down like, "If you leave school now and come work for us as apprentices you could easily be making X by "now"."

            Some left. Some stayed like me because we knew that being so close to completing the course we have something solid to put on a resume'.

            the IBEW laid off hundreds and one dude who was trained in EST like me ended up working as a lineman for a Telephone Co.

            They laid him off 3 months before I got laid off....

            Illinois is real tight right now.

              1.5 trillion dollar deficit....now that is one heck of a budget. guess fighting 2 wars isn't the wisest thing fiscally

              our budget just came out too....we'll be running a 56 billion dollar deficit. I think both countries need to walk away from Afghanistan.

                Yeah, we should be out of Iraq and Afghanistan, but never will be entirely until all carsrun on electricity or hydrogen power. The United States Strategic Police Force wouldn't allow it. Iraq has oil and Afghanistan completes our presence tosandwich Iran on west and east.</P>

                  I'd prefer to see none of our soliders [or Canadas or Great Britan] put in harms way. Have a very old friend who spent 23 years in the Marine Corp. He had some interesting thoughts on why we had better stay on top on these fanatics and not leave them to their own devices. Harass and badger and outright eliminate as many as possible or 2012 might just come sooner than some think. His theory was budget deficits won't mattera lick ifwe and or our Allies become targets for their next big one.If bin landen had the patience to wait until he had his hands on nuclear capabilities some of mightnot be having the chance to havethis conversation. Needless to say my friend and I get into to somegood discussionson topics like this</P>

                    There absolutely are excellent reasons to keep on top of the Muslim fanatics. They are our enemy of the near future. Their fanatical element believes all Christians are infidelsand must be eliminated. These are peoples who were born in to a tribal and warring society. In the past they knew nothing other than fighting each other, for whatever reason... Sunni against Shiite, etc. Now the world is global in communications and travel and they have a larger cause, and foe, and are at war with the Christian world, but don't mind killing their own in cause. We exacerbate their hate with ourpresence in Iraq and Afghanistan. Regardless of our motive, they'll oppose our mere presence.</P>


                    But,a conventional army has a difficult time succeeding against an enemy that has no uniform and can just blend in with the populace. Slowly we are building more clandestine forces that can ID them and take action... but, a uniformed soldier cannot succeed there. We have all these soldiers and technologically superior weapons, and an invisible foe to use them against. The common soldier isready to do his job, butis powerless in what he can really accomplish when the enemy is blowing up bombs in public markets, and targeting sites that are impossible to identify beforehand.</P>

                      So does anyone think Bin Laden is still alive? Or we know where he is but we don't want to kill him because we have other objectives to stay in the mid-east?

                      I'm really shocked that we are able to kill the #2 or #3 guy almost once a month, no matter who takes over the #2 spot, we find that person and he's done for...yet #1 can hide forever....

                              Yeah, this is not your typical war, everyone knows that. It's the hardest war to fight becuase you're not really fighting a physical army, but an idea. And as long as that idea can spread around the globe, then those people become enemy combatants.

                              There's no doubt about it, our military is elite. Not a country in this world can go up against us. It doesn't matter if China or Russia shows off a new jet fighter that can possibly go up against our F-22. How many did they make? 2?

                              During the cold war when USSR displayed their nukes, on those trucks, it turned out they were empty. It was just all for show.

                              Anyways, I don't think the war we are battling now will ever end because there really is no end to this kind of war...

For the immediate and forseeable future , yes we are going to have to have boots on the ground. Gathering intel and keeping themutts [al quieda]at bay. Some believe it's had adirect effect on these mother****ers from pulling off another big one here. Very ironic is'nt it?.............The terrosists being terrorized by drones. Scares the **** out em.
