"Discharged"? How was the discharge characterized?

PENAL CODE

TITLE 5. OFFENSES AGAINST THE PERSON

CHAPTER 20. KIDNAPPING, UNLAWFUL RESTRAINT, AND

SMUGGLING OF PERSONS

Sec. 20.01. DEFINITIONS. In this chapter:
(1) "Restrain" means to restrict a person's movements without consent, so as to interfere substantially with the person's liberty, by moving the person from one place to another or by confining the person. Restraint is "without consent" if it is accomplished by:
(A) force, intimidation, or deception; or
(B) any means, including acquiescence of the victim, if:
(i) the victim is a child who is less than 14 years of age or an incompetent person and the parent, guardian, or person or institution acting in loco parentis has not acquiesced in the movement or confinement; or
(ii) the victim is a child who is 14 years of age or older and younger than 17 years of age, the victim is taken outside of the state and outside a 120-mile radius from the victim's residence, and the parent, guardian, or person or institution acting in loco parentis has not acquiesced in the movement.

I assume people who have fallen on hard times will do damn near anything for a envelope full of cash. The envelope doesn't even have to be that thick.

That's why I'm asking how the discharge was characterized. If it's an honorable discharge, 20 years in uniform is retirement at 50% of your highest 3 years of pay. About $27k a year for an E7. And coming out of a CI position, she should have an active TS/SCI, possibly with a poly. "Hard times" it shouldn't be.

"I am very proud to be a Cuban-American," said Mr. Trujillo. "I am the American dream. When I came to this country I had nothing, now I have my own business. Just like El Donald. If you work hard in this country you can accomplish anything."

When asked whether identifying as white helped him achieve success, Mr. Truijillo was adamant that his being white had absolutely nothing to do with his success - an admittedly very white thing to say.


This Trujillo dude is white as fark. Now I am thinking they should have a written test folks can take to see if they are white and the people that say "I don't need to take your stupid test, I'm very important with very important things to do" pass by default, it's the most white response you can make.

Vertol Systems, was paid $615,000 on Sept. 8 and $950,000 less than two weeks later.

So they've already blown through 1/8 of the $12 million budget, or as I believe it should be referred to as, slush fund. The remaining money could be diverted for hurricane relief but who am I kidding. How much was kicked back to the politicians?

When that happens it's always the most unexpected surprise and is quickly blamed on the opposing party for forcing the leopards to eat their face too.

I had a oil company corporate travel agent try to give me a long day. I lived in Tyler, Tx, and the interview was in Shreveport. It was literally 100 miles from my apartment to the casino parking garage. Tyler regional airport had two American Eagle flights a day, so she tried to sign me up for a 7am flight... to DFW. Where I would wait until evening, when another Eagle would take me to Shreveport. A 14 hour day just to go 100 miles. I could have biked that quicker.

Of course, it might have been a test in taking BS from corporate, which I failed because I don't like small airplanes and pointless things.

I just had the unfortunate opportunity to have dinner with a co-worker who introduced me to her new husband, an immigrant from Jamaica who got here solely because he married her, and is a RABID trumper. It took everyone of my evasive techniques to GTFO of that situation without saying something FUBAR.

Absolutely true. My guess is the GOP is resonating big timewith the inherent toxic masculinity of these populations. They're getting promises of remaining dominant within their social environments and they're biting hard. Not just hatred of women, but the 'defense' of traditional marriage and hatred/fear of LGBTQ+ and especially transgender issues. Not that they understand any of it -- and that feeds into their lust for authoritarian, masculine control. It's really working.
