I was once on a forum infested with trolls. How often do they appear here?


From what I can tell, this is a troll forum.

Billy, people have disagreed with him a lot today. This is my example.

The United States Constitution gave the president the power of Commander and Chief of the military

When I was in the Marines and I commanded an infantry fire team, it was my fire team, and I referred to it that way.  The Marines in that squad were "my Marines".

Infantry Squad, same thing.  Infantry Platoon.  Same thing.  My company commanders always referred to the company they commanded as "my company".  Battalion commanders ditto, regimental commanders and division commanders, ditto x2.

The Commandant of the Marine Corps routinely talks about doing right by "my Marines". 

I like the fact that our commander and chief feels a personal connection to the overall military.  He should think of the military as his.  This personal connection will make him a better commander.

Now I know you can argue that he is just being possessive.  That is your right, but you have no proof of this. 

Basically this is just another blah blah blah, waah waaah waah, crapola complaint that has no merit nor does it have any impact, real or imagined. 

You might as well have a lively debate about whether he should be wearing tighty whities, boxers or go commando. 

Of all the real problems in the world to solve, you pick out the use of a pronoun


I have family that is a Marine. He was just shipped to Japan. Not far from Korea. I am sure you know what those meu landing craft are about.

You don't mean another flip flop

He clearly said he knows more than the generals




He was talking about China, and not military action. $$$$$$ and it looks like it might be working.

I don't agree with him saying it (If I cared), but he's in charge. He tells the generals what to do with their troops. I just don't think its a big deal.
Its Trump.


I doubt that he just tells the generals what to do. I am sure they all sit and talk. They come up with more than one plan, and I bet they all pick which seems that it will work best, and the commander in chief says “DO IT”. Liberals have no clue about how not only the military is run, but corporations are very similar. And mostly successful. Trump seems to be a good leader to me, so far.

Hey, Trump supporters.

Watch this, please.

How does it not bother you that he called them 'his' military.

Bothers me tremendously. How many deaths are on his hands, and not even 100 days in office. Those deaths are on your hands, because you thought a businessman would make a good 5 star general.
