    @coffee steve I bet they are giving them MRE’s for Breakfast. I a few MRE when I was in the service they tasted like crap. Not a good way to start off you day. Chow hall breaskfast were usually the best meal of the day at least in the Air force.

  • lbsles

    @ cathy

    I guess I live in the wrong state, ops, not, I don’t. Lived there when I was a kid visited the Tulip festival in Holland, MI (?)

    Lived in Battle Creek MI.
    Dad was a medic at Percy Jones Army Hosp.
    Loved to tour the cereal plants, great smell.

    What kind of coffee do you drink.

  • Coffee Steve

    @Mickey O

    I’ll ask him next time I chat with him what they are serving to them now, bet its the same slop LOL

    BBL guys, have to run my son to work, well drive, I’m not in shape anymore to put him on my shoulders and run him to work, BUT 10 years ago? :-)

  • Coffee Steve

    @Doug Z
    What kind of coffee do you drink.

    Saw this just now

    All kinds, flavored, International, regular roast etc.. Folgers, Maxwell House, and the Church sells coffee beans for Missions offering too, all good :-)

  • Ratboy

    @ Loved to tour the cereal plants, great smell.

    I spent quite a bit of time at the Kellogg plant and headquarters as they were one on my clients. The place dont smell so good if a batch burns!! Burned corn flakes smell reeeeeal bad!! :lol:

  • cathy

    You have to love what they do to our military. Liberals pushed and got federal money so that schools in poor area could feed the students breakfast. Because you can think without a good breakfast. I guess the liberals don’t care if our military can think in the morning.

  • usnretiredx2

    @Micky O

    MRE are not to bad, some better than others. This isna cost cutting measure not a health issue. Breakfast is the highest cost to a chow hall / mess decks other than a special meal.

    Each MRE provides an average of 1,250 calories (13% protein, 36% fat, and 51% carbohydrates) and 1/3 of the Military Recommended Daily Allowance of vitamins and minerals. 

    Cost less than $5 per meal where it is about $15 for breakfast in a chow hall

  • usnretiredx2

    PS very few military eat breakfast, they rather sleep in, only 25% or less of a comands personnel use it.

    With that said, I see this as a starting point.

    ‘This Hagel hearing is a disaster’

    Liberals take to Twitter to slam Hagel

    BY: Washington Free Beacon Staff
    January 31, 2013 12:39 pm

    Distraught by his poor performance in front of the Senate Armed Services Committee, liberals viciously turned on Secretary of Defense nominee Chuck Hagel on social media.

    hagel’s making biden look rhetorically sure-footed

    — Peter Beinart (@PeterBeinart) January 31, 2013

    this hearing is beginning to remind me of the 1st Obama-Romney debate

    — Peter Beinart (@PeterBeinart) January 31, 2013

    This Hagel hearing is a disaster.

    — Andrew Kaczynski (@BuzzFeedAndrew) January 31, 2013

    Certainly seems like it on twitter RT @buzzfeedandrew This Hagel hearing is a disaster.

    — AdamSerwer (@AdamSerwer) January 31, 2013

    I think Hagel is engaged now in Jewsplaining.

    — Jeffrey Goldberg (@JeffreyGoldberg) January 31, 2013

    Hagel has written chapters on Iraq and on the Middle East. So we’re cool.

    — Jeffrey Goldberg (@JeffreyGoldberg) January 31, 2013

    Did Hagel just call Iran’s government “elected and legitimate”?

    — Jeffrey Goldberg (@JeffreyGoldberg) January 31, 2013

    Hagel is floundering through one policy answer after another. IRGC terrorism, Iraq surge, nukes.

    — attackerman (@attackerman) January 31, 2013

    “I support the president’s strong position on containment. I think that’s right.” Um, you meant prevention, right #Hagel?

    — attackerman (@attackerman) January 31, 2013

    #Hagel just stumbled over whether Iran govt is “legitimate” or “elected.” Fodder for oppo

    — Ron Kampeas (@kampeas) January 31, 2013

    Yikes, now he said he “supports the president’s position on containment.” #Hagel

    — Ron Kampeas (@kampeas) January 31, 2013

    Watching Hagel stumbling at Senate hearing. Recalling Brennan gaffes after Abbottabad. DoD and CIA not in best of hands, alas.

    — Ed Husain (@Ed_Husain) January 31, 2013

    Basically, Hagel does not seem very sharp.

    — Blake Hounshell (@blakehounshell) January 31, 2013

    Hagel not particularly swift on his feet. Missed opportunity to push back vs. McCain. “Senator, you want another war in the Middle East?”

    — Blake Hounshell (@blakehounshell) January 31, 2013

    Hagel is a little awkward here

    — Max Fisher (@Max_Fisher) January 31, 2013

    Sen. Hagel’s confirmation hearing performance was brilliant. #slatepitches

    — Josh Greenman (@joshgreenman) January 31, 2013

    Not impressed by Hagel so far. This is one of the toughest jobs in govt. He needs to do better

  • cathy

    @usretiredx2, My brothers always talked about the breakfast meals. They said they were the best of the day. They would always get up for them. But they were marines. Maybe they weren’t allowed to sleep in.
    They always talked about how the marines would be doing PT on deck for an hour before the Navy sailors would show up.

  • cathy

    @ratboy, I’m wondering why Obama did this with Hagel. Obama isn’t dumb and Hagel was a stupid pick. He knows Hagel isn’t going to make it. What is Obama up too? Is he trying to prove how little repulicans know? Or does he just want to make his real pick look smart?

  • Coffee Steve

    How in the world Hagel could even be considered?

  • cathy

    Every republican said he shouldn’t have been. That’s why many think Obama has something up his sleeve.

  • Coffee Steve


    Could be he will just bypass congress again and appoint him and just to tick them off again :-)

    Now News we all can live without

    *Police: Louisville man stole nearly $500 worth of Red Bull in his pants – that’s about 240 cans :shock:

  • Mikey O

    @usnretiredx2 Last time I had one was in 1998 or 1997 they have a new ones now suppose to be better. We had some good ones back then but the worst one back then was the Omlet and Ham. Those were very last to go, and we always get the new guy to eat one and then watch the look on his face.

  • Coffee Steve

    Have a great rest of the day folks, were off to Bardstown where I have to do something worse than water boarding people, I get to sing to an audience :mrgreen: Pray for them PLEASE!!!

    Later Gators


  • AppleStinx


    To shield himself (Obama) from future criticism by appointing weak (for the job) candidates and still be in control, so when bad thing happens, fault lies with the incompetence of those appointees? Is it a case for what’s in the best interest of Barack Obama vs best interest of the country?

  • Mikey O

    @cathy Hagel is not a stupid pick believes what Obama really believes. Willing to gut the military, sell out Israel and let Iran get a nuke.

  • AppleStinx

    You got it! They are in our prayers and I’ll light up a couple of candles at the church for good measure. :lol:
