Hey all, So, I am in the process of exiting the military (not by choice, and not for discipline either). So naturally I've been putting my resume out there online (since the area I'm moving to is not…Continue

Aaron F Kendrick replied to Travis Spuhler's discussion Favorite period to study? in the group History Buffs
"Indeed.  I think it important to understand these eras, especially considering that there have been so many efforts to manipulate the efforts of The Greatest Generation into some type of twisted blessing of the current tyrannies. "

Aaron F Kendrick replied to Travis Spuhler's discussion Favorite period to study? in the group History Buffs
"I certainly hope your study is to continue to prevent tyrannical regimes and not as a disciple in their practices.  "

Aaron F Kendrick replied to Travis Spuhler's discussion Favorite period to study? in the group History Buffs
"Well.  I have a great many periods that I study, but the one I get enjoyment from would be the 19th century so far.  Now, my focus has been to understand the technology and society as it pertains to the steampunk sub-culture (greatly an…"

Travis Spuhler replied to Andrew McNeal's discussion Will there ever be another U.S. President who rivals men like Abe Lincoln, both Roosevelts, or Washington? in the group History Buffs
"I wouldn't say people are fast walking away from W necessarily. Depending on your view of the current guy, of course.  As with Clinton, these newer guys we'll have to wait 10-20 years to see the fruits of their real labor (generally…"

Travis Spuhler replied to Native Son's discussion Dress Code: Is it really a workers' rights issue? in the group The Great Debate
"In general, I think that ANY employer can and should be able to enforce a dress code. I mean, what happens when an electrician doesnt wear mandated clothing? he gets fired, or hurt or worse.  Honestly, a generic "conservative office…"

Travis Spuhler replied to Andrew D, USA Ret's discussion Christians vs Muslims in Africa - Not really Christians or Muslims? in the group The Great Debate
"I think though, that one of the defining characteristics of Islam is that they actually call for the death and beheading of non-believers, if they will not convert.  While I won't pretend to know much about this situation, it sort of…"

Travis Spuhler replied to Stephen Jashub Comstock's discussion Anti-bullying legislation. in the group The Great Debate
"Personally, I find these things just as idiotic as most of, if not all of the anti-gun legislation... An Idle Dad hit many of the points I would bring up. If someone is being "bullied" in a verbal sense, you can't really do much…"

Travis Spuhler replied to Bryan's discussion Best Deodorant?
"I personally use Brut deodorant, and i am honestly not sure if they even offer more than one scent other than "Original". If you are wanting to avoid having a combination of "20 scents", switch to a mild/scentless soap and…"

Travis Spuhler replied to Matt T.'s discussion Man as "Expendable" in the group The Great Debate
"I wouldn't necessarily go so far as to say men are expendable... It's more, in my view, a construct that was built in Western Society an extremely long time ago, perhaps the Greeks, or Roman eras.. It's this idea that it is somehow…"

Travis Spuhler replied to StaggerLee's discussion Modesty: Are We Americans Nuts? in the group The Great Debate
"Definitely... When I was stationed in Germany it almost seemed like a polar opposite.. it just seemed like there was sex everywhere which isn't entirely accurate, but felt true when comparing it to us here in the US.  My upstairs…"

Advice on new career options

Hey all, So, I am in the process of exiting the military (not by choice, and not for discipline either). So naturally I've been putting my resume out there online (since the area I'm moving to is not the area I'm currently in) and gotten a few calls/emails back. Thing is, most of these are from various Insurance/investment companies. (regardless the company, almost ALL are requiring the Life insurance license, Series 7/66, etc.) My question is more along the lines of, is this really…See More

Travis Spuhler replied to Gerard's discussion Vehicles for big guys

Travis Spuhler replied to Jacob's discussion A manly ecigarette?
"Because if you are smoking cigars, especially in a social setting, you're getting the sense of community and camaraderie that comes from talking, face-to-face, with other like-minded men."

Travis Spuhler replied to Jacob's discussion A manly ecigarette?
"Cigars are the "manly cigarette" option. When done properly, you won't have a "habit" that needs fulfilled (maybe the habit becomes meeting with people on a certain night, rather than the "need" to smoke)"
