    Don't let others get you down. Not naysayers, not pretenders, not appeasers, not opportunists; none of em.

    What others do pales beside what YOU do.

    Press on! - The r3VOLution continues...

    "Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence.Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'press on' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."

    Training Who?
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    They're "training" near the front lines. Or are they "operating"?

    The soldiers join a small contingent of special operations forces who have maintained a steady presence in Somalia, where they have trained and advised government forces and African Union troops aiding the war-torn country in fighting the al-Qaida-aligned Shabab group. Some of those U.S. forces have operated near the front lines in a mission that has taken on greater risk for teams in the field.
