He seems to have had a good time. One week was spent in MOUT training (Military Operations Urban Terrain or Urban Warfare CQB for old timers). A second week was spent with the Engineers repairing a barracks. Son spent one day in pistol qualifications and shot expert 389 out of 400.
Nothing better than the Marine Corps to keep a young man busy and out of my hair!

Mom turns in her son after he became 'suicidal over a girl'

OPEC, Russia prepared to raise oil output under U.S. pressure
Both are starved for revenue and if they don't pump, the US and others will. The oil will flow, the question is who profits from it. Selling oil will allow Russia and Saudi Arabia to delay the reckoning for a while.

Welcome to the new world order. You will be shocked to learn that dapper, Obama is gone and will not be vacillating here any longer.
