According to the Civitas Media website, this is incorrect. Quote Statement from the CEO Civitas Media never had any plans or intentions of publishing in print or online lists of holders of “conceal and carry” permits. Nor will Civitas Media develop databases of permit holders. A poorly crafted internal memo meant to highlight editorial discussions and planning incorrectly indicated that such a database was being planned; it has been considered and rejected. Michael C. Bush, CEO http://civitasmedia.com/ End quote Still begs the question as to why it was suggested, or what they expected to come of such a project.
1. No, he hasn't. This is the ONLY 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg address. 2. Since the event has not yet happened, no, they haven't. Whether or not any former presidents will attend, we do not know. Since the current president has decided not to get cold at a November outdoor event, there's certainly room now for any/all of the former presidents to attend without upstaging the Obama ego. 3. Fuel what fire? The one that Obama started himself by trying to assume President Lincoln's mantle, only to blow it off when inconvenient?

President Dwight D. Eisenhower commuted his sentence to life imprisonment. Those who shriek "treason!" at every perceived offense usually have not one clue what the crime actually means under U.S. law. We who are charged with investigating national security crimes like treason and spying get really teed off at such people. They're not helping.

"...to be charged with treason, which is a crime punishable by death according to military law." There is no such charge under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. Treason is found solely in the Constitution, and in 18 USC 2381. It carries a maximum penalty of death, but allows for lesser penalties. Note the difference between it and the charge of spying, which is Article 106 of the UCMJ, and carries a mandatory penalty of death - no lesser penalties authorized. Adam Gadahn has been indicted for treason, but since he's still not caught, there's been no trial. The last person convicted of treason was Tomoya Kawakita, a Japanese American sentenced to death in 1952 for tormenting American prisoners of war during World War II;...

Having three kids and not being within the registration range of 18-26 pretty much takes you out of a potential draft. Further, the rule being relaxed was for assignment to certain types of units, not for opening the Infantry to women. Not every position in a combat unit is a combat assignment -- they need support personnel, too. Unless/until the Army and Marine Corps come out with specific instructions on assigning women to the Infantry or Special Forces branches, which ain't gonna happen, relax.
What I'm reading here is Ms. Hughes wants her daughters to be helpless princesses, rather than strong, capable of doing for herself women. Pity. I grew up on a farm and, like Elisabeth26, could ride a horse, shoot guns, drive anything, become a serious musician and artist, wear dresses and have tea parties. Nothing was closed to me, if I wanted to do it. Wound up serving in the Army, as an officer, then later as a civilian, for over 33 years. I did not have to turn myself into a mini man. Got shot at, got banged up, lost subordinates and peers to enemy action, and still retired as a well-adjusted woman who can do anything I need to do/want to do. Would that your daughters learn to be as strong and independent. (Next)
