    That gorgeous photo tells you everything you need to know about our President’s ability to relate to everyone, no matter how young, old, rich, or poor. I can’t think of any other president in history who would have the self-confidence and empathy to do this.

    OPSEC isn’t the Islamic State group’s strong suit. Airmen at Hurlburt Field, Florida, used social media posts by the insurgent group to track the location of an Islamic State group headquarters building. Twenty-two hours later, three joint direct attack munitions destroyed the target, said Gen. Hawk Carlisle, commander of Air Combat Command, at a June 1 speech in Arlington, Virginia.

    “The [airmen are] combing through social media and they see some moron standing at this command,” Carlisle said at the speech, which was sponsored by the Air Force Association. “And in some social media, open forum, bragging about command and control capabilities for Da’esh, ISIL, And these guys go ‘ah, we got an in.’ “So they do some work, long story short, about 22 hours later through that very building, three JDAMS take that entire building out. Through social media. It was a post on social media. Bombs on target in 22 hours. “It was incredible work, and incredible airmen doing this sort of thing.”

      The downside of the “instant gratification” generation — they DON”T KNOW HOW T KEEP THEIR MOUTHS SHUT! This feel good, Oooorah, kick-ass, All-American story plays well out in the heartland; however, this Marine reads it and thinks Ops-Sec! Why the hell broadcast how we found the target????

    Do that dam idiot Lindsey Graham think he will be elected President because he hate President Obama? If you disagree with the President that is fine, but no need to disrespect him nearly everytime you open your mouth. I can’t even stand to look at Lindsey.

      In a story last month in the Boston Globe, Rauch explained what his new venture is all about, and why the focus has been on inexpensive, healthy food rather than profits. “Our job at Daily Table is to provide healthy meals that are no more expensive than what people are already buying,” Rauch said. “We’re trying to reach a segment of the population that is hard to reach. It’s the working poor who are out buying food, but who can’t afford the food they should be eating.”
