Quote
R. Lee Ermey was laid to rest Friday with military honors in a ceremony that included a gun salute and presentation of the American flag.

The accomplished actor and veteran was buried at Arlington National Cemetery. The service included a firing party, folding and presentation of the American flag, and a bugle player.

Ermey served more than 11 years in the Marines, including a tour in Vietnam before he was medically discharged as a staff sergeant.

R.I.P., Gunny.
Social Media are multi-national billion dollar corporations with foreign investors that are going unchecked with the power to effect our election process.

"Book burnings" have evolved into "de-plat forming". Its the same principles behind both: to eliminate accessible knowledge.

God rest your soul SSGT Ermey Those of us who entered the Military in the 60's thru the 70's, no matter the branch of service probably encountered a DI along the Lines of R Lee Ermey. I don't think he was "Acting" at all.

But That immortal line:

"I want that latrine so clean the Virgin Mary would be proud to take a shit in it,
" is in a class  by itself.

WOW.  All I can say is I am breathless.  Yes, there are people who live just to tell other people what to do - they are called liberals, AKA Democrats.  They want your guns, they want to outlaw religion, they want to solidify their power by taking away everything you ever worked for.  They are busy-bodies with emotional baggage that can’t be bargained with. They can’t be reasoned with. They doesn’t feel pity or remorse, or fear. And they absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead.  They feel guilt over things that happened decades ago and want to pay for it with your hard-earned wages.  They are very intelligent and to them the ends justify the means.  It is not a lie if an untruth is told about someone they disagree with.  After-all, if you believe in the individual, you are being selfish.  If you think that freedom means freedom of speech, freedom of religion, the right to assemble, etc., you are a racist and a 'alt-right'.

Are you serious? You do know, that term was created by the left, to hide the connection of racism on the left.
There is no such animal as alt right, it's just another faction of leftist hate, just look at those involved, racist bigoted antisemitic Nazi, and who just got exposed for their antisemitism recently?

I watched some video on the makng of Full Metal Jacket. Lots of stuff I did not know. Ermey was hired as a tech advisor, not an actor. They were  in the process of hiring the actor to play the DI. Ermey went to wardrope and got a uniform to wear as he was demostrating how to be a DI. He lept doing it better than the actors so they hired him, maybe fired the actor they had hired. His dialogue was better than what they wrote for him so they let him use his own lines.

I did not recognize the actor from law and order Criminal Intent, the fat guy who killed himself.  He had to gain lots of weight got the role.
