Wait, they are on active service, they haven't been demobilized (that was where they were heading) and they complain that they have to a) wait and b) not be allowed to wander about?

I would think that as far as the Army is concerned they are in transit and they better well stay put.

Security risk?  Well, they are from Mississippi so that is a legitimate concern imho.
I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Yeah my thought was maybe it was some sort of Army thing where they had to be debriefed before allowed to mingle with the civilians or something rather than something the airport was worried about. But I have no idea.

I am not from San Antonio! I am from Austin! :P

What's the difference?
You know I'm going to lose
And gambling's for fools
But that's the way I like it
Baby, I don't want to live forever.

San Antonio has an NBA team and Austin its Development League affiliate.  :P

Now, see, this is what I mean: it's not like I wouldn't prefer her 100000000000000000000000000x times more to Trump, but she is matching with the same insticts/reflexes as Trump, except from the left. Even the Facebook stuff are mirror images. She is having a fanatic following building around her, and she hasn't done anything else but being an outsider and offering easy radical solutions to her side's real and perceived problems.

I'm torn.

One the one hand, Democrats finally go on the offensive, on the same field as the Republicans.

On the other hand, I really don't like the fanatism from the left, it does not bode well for the future of the US.

Saying she went to college and interned for a Senator is not a great rejoinder to a dig on her experience. For my 2 c tending bar in Union Square is more impressive then being a Senate intern.

More importantly, it plays really well with millennials.

It plays well with 30 and 40 year olds? Nice they still manage to get out at that age.

To add, I know a couple 20-something bartenders that are in love with AOC because they feel like they have so much in common with her.  Had to finally mute/unfollow them because they were killing my FB/Twitter feed.
