    • Also working in Riyadh ws the smartest thing I ever did.I invested mainly in currencies with my tax free dollars (I was paid in the pound) in the Kuwati dinar right after the first Gulf war when it went on the market at 10 cents to the dollar. I bought 50 k worth the first year, by the time I decided to quit and come home, the dinar had went to 3.40 to the dollar and then put that in a bank in Amsterdam when the euro first came out at 1 for 1 and got 5.5 % interest on bank notes. best moves I ever made, not rich, but, I fuck off a lot.I only have to pay taxes on the money I spend here in the states, repatrioted money as they say, but I work it out so on paper its the interst money I pay taxes on and not the profit I made on the dinar since none of it ever came to the States.

    • Bill clinton signed up for the military
      He wasn't required to report for a specific time period.

      When he was eleigible for deferment because he was a student when Nixon re-instated the deferments for college students he requested the deferment and was allowed to remove his namefrom induction, he ws never awol, nor did he not show up for duty.
      Had nixon never re-instituted the deferment for college students he would have served our country, unlike you biggie Rush and Cheney, he wasn't a pussy, he was willing to go.

      You and your heroes, never have been.

    • I think your more jealous that I was actually able to make something out of my life while you will most likely be nothing more then a simple grunt or cannon fodder.

    • Like another poster wrote. The Neocons are all gun ho for war as long as they and their family are safe and don't have to do any of the fighting.
