    I wish he'd run for higher office.

    I know him, not well but I've met him several times. He was the head doc of the ER at a hospital I worked at years ago as an RT. He is a West Point grad and was a rifle company CO in the 82nd before he got into medicine. I saw him outside a liquor store when he was mulling a run for governor and I told him to go for it. He ended up not doing it because of his stance on LGBTQ and comments on Muslims; it also nixed his nomination by Trump for Sec. of the Army.

    The gloves are off these days. Fvck it. It's to a point where no one on our side should give a damn about calling a spade a spade. Our society needs that nowadays as this PC horseshit is out of control. I sincerely hope he runs for POTUS some day.

    Congressmen who actually "worked for a living", there is something you don't always see.

    Flight surgeon is no joke. My brother went in basic infantry, enlisted back in 87 and came out a Capt. and a flight surgeon. It certainly didn't happen overnight.

    When the army sends you to med school you basically do four years in one year and they keep the best 20%. Nobody really goes to medical school "for free" just because they are in the military.
    It's hard to be a ACLU hating, philosophically Libertarian, socially liberal, fiscally conservative, scientifically grounded, agnostic, porn admiring gun owner who believes in self determination.

    Chuck, we miss ya man.

    Yup, I’m so tired of career politicians that speak out of both sides of their mouth (maybe that’s why I liked DJT so much)...

    Generally military medicine is an inverted bell curve: either really good, or really bad. All the average ones get out. In the Navy, flight doc (called 'surgeon', but almost any doc can do it) is a coveted job....it's pretty cush and great assignments.

    I love to see vets get into politics. Once upon a time I think it was something like 75% of congressmen were veterans, now it's less than 5%.
