I don't know if there is a group or post about this yet, but I couldn't find one. Whether you're for the war or against the war, America is fighting and our boys are stuck thousands of miles from home. Some of these men have never been out of their county, never been away from home and are putting their lives on the line for our freedom. I was hoping that this could be a place where any combat deployed soildger could put his company's contact info on the wall here along with a list of what he…See More

Profile Information

Interests
I'm an Army Brat who grew up in Seoul, just recently graduated and now working in the Advertising industry in NYC. I love engaging in intellectual discussions (be it religious, political, socio-econimical or anything that anyone has an opinion on). The daily grind of wake up, work, sleep has been taking its toll which is what brings me here. Its great to find a community where we can discuss and do man things. Maybe cut down a tree, build a fire, kill a bear. You know , man things. haha.

Is this negligence?

I've been working in a department store (Belk) inside of a mall for almost three years now. I've never had any security problems and I've always felt safe up until last Friday. I departed from school around 2:20 and I arrived at work at 2:40pm for my 3 o'clock shift. Belk employees have to park on the third floor of the parking deck which I've been doing. On this particular day, the deck was a bit fuller than usual due to the Easter weekend so I parked in the very back of the deck against the…See More

Admiring aspects of times of oppression

I was having a conversation with a woman today and I made a positive comparison to the style and composition of women in the Antebellum South. An African-American lady overheard me speaking and became extremely angry that I made a positive reference to a time when her ancestors were enslaved. I asked her if she thought the bubonic plague was the only thing going on before the European Renaissance, then I asked her if taxes would be the only reason an American would have stayed loyal to Britain…See More
