THOUGHTS OF THE DAY 6/9

I have been on vacation for the last week for some well-deserved R and R.  A lot happened while I was gone, in DC and in the World.  A lot more craziness out of Washington occurred for sure.  Read as much as you can tolerate.  Watch the videos and enjoy.  Gods speed.

BATTLE STRATEGY HISTORY OF THE DAY:

THE FALL OF CONSTANTINOPLE IN 1453, ITS ONCE IMPREGNABLE WALLS BREACHED BY THE OTTOMAN SIEGE GUNS, BROUGHT TO AN END THE BYZANTINE EMPIRE AND ESTABLISHED THE OTTOMAN EMPIRE AS THE MAJOR THREAT TO CHRISTENDOM IN THE MEDITERRANEAN AND EASTERN EUROPE FOR THE NEXT TWO CENTURIES.

From the Book, 100 Battles, Decisive Conflicts that shaped the World, by Martin Dougherty

TIME UNTIL NEXT POTUS ELECTION:

882 Days, 15 Hours, 28 Minutes, 17 Seconds

QUOTE OF THE DAY:

President Barack Obama’s national security adviser said Friday that her full-throated praise ofArmy Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was appropriate given the former Taliban prisoner’s willingness to go to war for his country — despite questions about whether or not he deserted his Army colleagues.

Susan Rice, who on Sunday said Bergdahl served the United States with “honor and distinction,” told CNN in an interview that she was speaking about the fact the Idaho native enlisted and went to Afghanistan in the service of his country.

Rice: Bergdahl deserves ‘due process’

“I realize there has been lots of discussion and controversy around this,” Rice said. “But what I was referring to was the fact that this was a young man who volunteered to serve his country in uniform at a time of war. That, in and of itself, is a very honorable thing.”

There are No words to describe the statements of SUSAN RICE AGAIN!  This OBINION cannot seem to get any facts right when making grandiose, self-serving statements.  Her abilities in the job she has been tasked are ZERO!

VIDEO OF THE DAY:

Way to much talking, but good video on the UPPERCUT.

THOUGHT OF THE DAY:

UNTREATED MENTAL ILLNESS AN IMMINENT DANGER

Untreated Psychopaths killing people in large numbers.  60 Minutes video.  It speaks for itself.

RULE OF THE DAY:

KNOW STATE LAWS AND REGULATIONS

Each state in the United States has, or is now looking into regulating its Private Investigation, and its Personal Protection businesses.  The State of Virginia, or Commonwealth of Virginia, the state I reside in took these measures and ran with them.  Virginia is the most regulated state in the country for Private Investigator’s (P.I.) and Personal Protection Specialists (P.P.S.).  The department of the state that regulates the security industry is the Department of Criminal Justice Services (D.C.J.S.).  They regulate the businesses, the individuals, and the training schools.  The department is self-funded so there are a lot of fees, ridiculous regulations, and laws that don’t make a lot of sense to the security insider, but like a man once told me, “It’s the nature of the beast.”  You don’t like it, move to another state.

Agents in the business whether a P.I., or a P.P.S. must have the following qualifications, licenses and certifications , NO EXCEPTIONS, or they are in violation of Virginia law.  The forward is also separated into two categories: Independent Contractor, or Employee:

Independent Contractor P.I.     Employee P.I.

Virginia DCJS Business License      P.I. Certification

Proof of Liability Insurance

P.I. Certification

Compliance Agent Certification

* Concealed Weapons Permit

* Basic Firearms Certification

* Optional

Independent Contractor P.P.S.        Employee P.P.S.

Virginia DCJS Business License      P.P.S. Certification

Proof of Liability Insurance             * Advanced Firearms Certification

P.P.S. Certification                *Concealed Weapons Permit

Compliance Agent Certification

* Concealed Weapons Permit

* Advanced Firearms Certification

* Optional

* If a firearm is carried concealed, you must have a concealed weapons permit (C.W.P.) issued by the county or city in which you reside.

* If you have a P.P.S. certification, you must take the Advanced Firearms Course and be certified.

* If you have a concealed weapons permit and are a P.I., you must take the Basic Firearms Course and be certified.
