We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Nothing made me happier than when some punk tried this stuff on the Drill Instructors in Boot Camp. The DI's had him doing mountain climbers until he collapsed. After the DI's left, the rest of the recruits administered an attitude tune-up.
NJSoldier ... I assume that by "attitude tune-up" you are referring to that great "intervention" by one's military comrades known as "wall-to-wall counseling." From what the military men of my acquaintance tell me, this is one of the great, [unrecognized by the literati] effective interventions by one's fellow soldiers which has kept the armed forces a stable 'learning experience' for young wise-a$$es whose stupidities are pulling down the reputation of the Unit, whatever the Unit might be. When properly administered by one's pi$$ed-off fellow soldiers, the discipline does no permanent damage to the misbehaver, but gets his attention and convinces him that perhaps it's time to change his ways.
I suspect that versions of this have been used down through the ages to tame the idiocy of one's battlefield comrades.
Right now the ACLU is threatening to sue our legislature for allowing Christian invocations. The President of the Senate has noted that members of other religions are also allowed to make invocations, that the Senate does not exercise any control over the prayers, and that it would be discriminatory to allow some religions to pray and not others, or to dictate what people could say during their prayers.
The ACLU says that does not matter because their "clients" are offended by the Christian prayers.
