We have reached the point where we need fewer than five more votes for the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act to pass!

With the return of Majority Whip Steve Scalise, the legislation now is four votes away from passage, maybe even fewer. While Scalise has not officially co-sponsored the bill, he introduced a nearly identical reciprocity bill a few years ago and has recently declared in interviews that his shooting has only strengthened his belief in the right to carry.

This is the moment we have been waiting for. With the passage of the budget this week, Congress now has a small window where they can pass legislation with just a simple majority in the House and Senate. read more

Thirty five years ago if you were to tell me that I am going to stand up here speaking to a couple thousands patriots, in English, I'd laugh at you. Man, every morning I wake up thanking God for putting family and me in the greatest country on earth.

I just want you all to know that the American dream does exist and I am living the American dream. I was asked to speak to you about my experience as a first generation Vietnamese American, but I rather speak to you as an American. read more

Uhhh...I hate to tell you this, danni, and ruin your rant, but it was YOUR guys and YOUR crew that sent all the troops into Vietnam and it was YOUR elected administration that set the RoE that caused so many to be slaughtered.

"In 1961, President John F. Kennedy continued the Truman Doctrine of assisting countries threatened by Communism by sending supplies and military advisors to South Vietnam in their fight against Communist North Vietnam. US troops were in combat less than a year later, though there had been no declaration of war from Congress. President Kennedy was assassinated in 1963 and President Lyndon Johnson took over the management of the war in Vietnam. Congress passed the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, affirming that the US was "prepared, as the President determines, to take all necessary steps, including the use of armed force" to assist South Vietnam. Though there was no declaration of war, Johnson understood the Gulf on Tonkin Resolution as empowering him to escalate the fighting.The war became increasingly unpopular at home. Critics argued there was no clear objective, the US did not seem to be winning, and casualties were mounting. Under a barrage of criticism, President Johnson announced he would not run for a second term."

Nixon was left with a "---- pie" but he DID start withdrawing troops and he did eliminate a lot of the sancturaries. The severe bombing of Hanoi and Haiphong during Operation Linebacker in 1972 had a lot to do with the Vietnamese coming to the table in Paris. I left Cam Rhan for my last flight in late 1971. My first landing was at Tan Son Nhutin 1958.There's not a lot you can tell me about the Vietnam was, danni.
