  •  Good, now show me where the military didn't (0+ / 0-)

    care, and these people were not only retained at their same rank or that they were subsequently promoted.

    It doesn't matter - the military has a right to know about it, and would know about it, if they had bothered to check criminal records.

    •  Excuse me, now YOU'RE diverting... (0+ / 0-)

      That's it - keep adding conditions.

      At some point, it's up to YOU to prove your statements instead of demanding that others disprove them.  You know perfectly well that personnel records aren't publicly available, and that there is NO WAY to meet your last "show me" request except through massive inference.

      Proof by assertion is not proof.

      The word "parent" is supposed to be a VERB, people...

      •  It's simply dismantling your false premise (0+ / 0-)

        that's all. You've built a whole tower of arguments based on a very simple false premise.

        If you don't make a false premise there is nothing to dismantle.

        I did the best ti could, but you can't see it, so you'll just have to think about it, or if you don't want to do that, just hide out in your towering edifice of excuses.
