The Upright and Locked Position

Ms. Saunders solution is for tall folks to suck it up, or pay more. If you are tall and the seats are too close together, one could stand for portions of the flight, but flight attendants hate that and will direct you back to your seat or have the pilot put on the "fasten seat belt" sign under the ruse of "turbulence", when none is encountered. There are no solutions except to practice courtesy as the airlines will not relent by having more leg room, and less seats. Complaints to the airlines go unheeded, as they suggest upgrades which cost money. If you are a government traveler, you must ride in economy unless you pay the extra, as we are all trying to be good stewards of tax payer monies...so tall folks are stuck. I wonder how long until somebody tries to shout "height discrimination"?
This contemplation, just as was the failed attempt to rescue Mr. Foley and other ISIS hostages, has no place in the news. We compromise our ability for surprise, and give the enemy opportunities to refine their operations. This makes the level of difficulty and complexity increase expotentially, placing our troops in higher levels of danger. It comes off to professionals as bragging for media and political purposes.
Two months ago, ISIS in Iraq was comprised of only 5,000 militants. Now there are 30,000--the numbers do not add up. With the purported numbers, they would not have wasted their time on the small, almost non-strategic targets and should launch into Baghdad...but they haven't. That's because they are spread thinly, with tenuous logistics. An example is the Mosul dam, which ISIS could have destroyed...but they did not because they needed the water. I concur we need to destroy these animals in place, but we do not need the hysterics of Senator Feinstein to over-inflate the task. Regardless of this attempt to resurrect the POTUS foreign policy bona fides, there is work to be done, but our present administration has been asleep at the wheel and only now awakens and addresses the depraved carnage of ISIS. POTUS owns this mess fully, but success against ISIS will not help the democrats this November.
If you increase supply and therefore availability, then the price will go down. Doesn't mean you can't still get contraceptives without cost via your health plan on someone else's dime. As for barriers, what would they be if you could buy over-the-counter? No doctor, no middleman, no government--no problem, right? That would be true except if you are the government and can no longer get another slice of citizen money, or control over it for pandering purposes. Growing up in the 70s with all the bat-sh** crazy women's lib ideology, I wonder why it is that I have responsibly paid for all of my contraception, but women seemingly cannot handle this one spigot of personal responsibility...so they let government into their bedrooms, doctor's offices and their employer's boardrooms to decide this issue for them. Not very liberated, after all.
Cathy...me thinks you protest too much:-). Coulter versus Maddow...perfect for "Celebrity Death Match." Get Mills Lane out of his grave and "Let's Get it On!
Annie...you just successfully trolled the entire liberal establishment. Good on ya!

Why limit it to the students? Can we not apply the test to college faculty, staff and administrators, as well?
With no death penalty, there is no justice for the murdered.
Likely, he wants to differentiate between what was sent and JSOC. You are right, however, about the annoyance. Just because you are doing FID doesn't mean you hang your combat cred at the door. Best to you Rick0418.
