Great thread, glad to see it.

Me? Well, okay. I am a 22 year old male, location I will withhold for security reasons, former Marine, veteran of OIF, and an amputee. I served with the 1st Battalion, 3rd Marines, AKA "Lava Dogs". I collect firearms and have several. I am currently considering my education options. I would like to work with metals, and be able to weld/mill/forge and become a master of all metalworking trades...

What do they do with you after you become an amputee, if you don't mind me asking. What do you get, like $1000/ month = free meds?

I am in the "Marine for Life" program, basically you get taken care of until I can get "back into society and make a smooth transition back into the community". It isn't free money for the rest of your life, just until they match you with a job that you also like. Yes there is free healthcare and funding for education. Also childcare, housing, the whole 9. Unfortunately for me I was never married nor did I ever have any children. That opportunity was obviously squandered thank you very much Uncle Fucking Scam.

I can not speak for the other branches. I have heard of Army guys getting a DV check, permanently. I would assume it is this way across the board. Brother, the government is alot smarter now than they were, say, 40 years ago. They now have these bullshit programs to keep their costs down. No different than these big corporations.

I am 19 years old, female, Irish and Danish.  I grew up in a small town in southeastern Wisconsin for the first 11 years of my life, then had to move to Arizona, then North Dakota, then Oregon.  People say I come off as snotty/bitchy just because I am quiet.  I also randomly quote TV/ movies, so I confuse people who don't share the same interests. 

I dress mostly "Gothic".  I am proud of my anti-tan.  I listen to gothic music, but also have a wide range of musical interests.  I love Star Trek, Family Guy, Futurama, and of course The Simpsons. 

In high school I was very heavily involved with AFjROTC.  For those unfamiliar with that, is it a high school class with no official military relationship or commitment, but it teaches military history, military style leadership and management.  At the end of my high school years I was the highest ranking cadet in the program =].  I graduated with a 3.7 GPA

In fall I start my path in becoming a Respiratory Therapist, just like my mom.  I am a conservative liberal eclectic pagan. 

I think that's all for now.... :captain:

Alright ill guess ill go,

Im 21 years old, and I was born in Miami and i lived their for 8 years, Parents are divorced, Ive always had a interest in world history, My first major muses in life was Civil War history, I was a voracious reader of any history book i could get my hands on. I never did good in school and i dropped out in 9th grade, I completed my highschool diploma after i dropped out. I now reside in Atlanta, GA.

I went to College and majored in Networking. I dropped out of college and now i guess all options are open.My major pursuit is self-employment.

I at one time was a card carrying republican before Bush was elected in 2000, i never liked Bush and I preferred McCain.Now I dont like either. Ive always been involved in Politics when i was young and frequently debate with my parents and friends.

My major interests are Population Psychology and and Modern Military tactics, Im a avid reader of Military theorists like Boyd,Lind,Clausewitz and many others. Ill classify my political philosophy as a Centrist/Constitutionalist.

I'm 19 years old. Currently attending my university with a psychology degree, but I am going to change that to Computer Science because I want to learn computer security.

I don't take college seriously, though.

I'm a fascist in that I believe that the strong should rule the weak, and the clever rule the strong. (Boyd Rice). I also believe that most people are utterly incapable of any form of leadership and thus must be ruled. Most people must also die because they don't have any positive qualities.

I'm an enemy of democracy and I hate all forms of populism. I'm an elitist.

Hey hey, I am a 22 year old English guy. I graduated with an environmental science degree from Manchester University. My freshman uni year got me into politics and introduced me to psilocybin tampanesis, they were still legal to buy fresh in the headshops in the UK at the time. I got to spend a year of my degree in Buffalo NY on a student exchange and that completely changed my perception of life/the world. So much so that I now am at a loss as to what I want out of life  :grin: I was there during the election and that was a really exciting time on the campus. I got into the daily show and all that and now understand more about American politics than I do about English.
I am currently broke while I search for a job, it sucks but I guess it's just a phase.  I like this forum because people don't pull any punches and force you to put up or shut up in regard to evidence, it helps to have your beliefs challenged. Despite the arguments and ruffled feathers here I think you are all interesting insightful people, reading about your lives confirms that.

I'm a 20 year old male born in Moscow, Russia but moved to the USA at 9 years old. Right now I am attending a state university and majoring in Biochemistry & Biotechnology. I have a 3.7 GPA and I absolutely-fucking-love science.

My parents divorced when I was still a kid in Russia. Then my Dad moved to the US and then I moved here too; my mom moved a few years later and my parents remarried. They basically wanted me to have a better life in the US because Russia did not have a hospitable envirnoment. Our suburn of Moscow had its own Mafia which had the cops on the pay roll. Then there was conscription into the Russian army where a few thousand Russian kids die every year because of abuse.

When I moved to America I attended an all black school, well, almost black because it had 3 other white kids out of like 1000. I went here because it had a language program for immigrants. Then I jumped around a few other public schools and then ended up at a private college prep high school from which I graduated.

As for the future I will probably get a masters in biochemistry or possibly go pre-med. As for jobs I will probably work for a pharmaceutical company, biotech firm, chemicals company, or a hospital. If I lose all interest in this or fail then I will join the military.

I became interested in politics during the 2001 election. I saw myself as a democrat during that time but as time went on I ended up in the middle. I am pro gay rights, pro abortion, pro immigration, pro taxes, pro legal prostitution, pro decriminalization of weed, and pro war.

I've seen a few videos, it wasnt the worst in violation of human dignity and
actual bodily harm I've see but considering these people are supposed to be
tovarish, it ranked as far worse than prisoners have recieved.

I'm a middle aged male with no prospects, no soul and

no future. I pass this on to you only because I've been

enlightened by my own mistakes. I have plenty of money,

which you all think important, but I payed a price...

my existence.


is it worth the price
