If you mean can a military retiree be reactivated and court martialed, no not at present.

An appeals court in 2019 overturned such a case based on 5th Amendment rights. It hasn't been challenged, so it's still in effect.

On the other according to US Code 8312 if a retired commissioned officer is convicted in a civil court of certain offenses (sedition is one), s/he loses all pay and most likely be dismissed. In other words you can't play; we don't pay. Dismissal is the equivalent of a dishonorable discharge. The prep loses every benefit; it's like they never rolled off the bus.

That's not a burn; that's a super nova.

Brava la diva Cher.


Thanks for posting this.

Thank you, Bright. That's a keeper.

Oh damn. That hurt.

As it should.


Whatever is beyond this life, may they rest there peacefully.

That's Georgy Zhukov. He was no poser.

Started as a conscripted private, Eastern Front WWI. Somehow survived. The horrors of the Eastern Front match the Western, at least the troops in the West had half way decent logistics.

Climbed the greasy pole during the 20's and 30's, including surviving Stalin's purges of the Red Army.

WWII and he came into his own. Lead several campaigns and won them, among others the Battle of Kursk and Operation Bagration. Finished off by rolling up the German army on the Eastern Front, giving the USSR most of Eastern Europe.

Stalin feared him as he should have. Zhukov had the Red Army in his holster. When that monster died, Zhukov supported Khrushchev in getting rid of another monster, Beria.

A good thing today's Red Army generals aren't anything like Georgy or we'd have a lot more to talk about than what MTG is up to this week.

Clue cell phone: Get a pair of boots that fit you.

They are available. I have a pair.

When men have spend 10 hours in a delivery room pushing a heavy load out a vajayjay, get back to us.

Everyone has a heavy load; it's called life.
