I'm sorry

From Der Spiegle, your Rorschach Test of the day.

More than 10,000 gay and lesbian athletes have come to Germany to participate in the 8th annual Gay Games in Cologne from July 31 to August 6. The competition is aimed at promoting self-confidence and pride for gays all over the world. Figure skating is among 35 different sporting events at the games. This picture shows a skater from host country Germany and his dancing partner from France.
URR - over to you.

Oh.My.God. I think I puked in my mouth a little. Thanks for the wake-me-up, Phib, you sorry son of a biscuit eater...

"See your local recruiter for details!"

Outlaw Mike said...

Two houses from my company, a lesbian couple is constructing a house. Another two females in breeding age who won't have offspring.

Then you go on holiday. On the way to the Channel Coast you pass thru Lille, northern France. FLOCKS of muslims. Veiled women either pregnant or pushing baby chariots. Swarms of five-six-seven-eight years old around them. Big brother(s) torching cars in central Lille.

You arrive in Snowdonia, Wales. When descending the Snowdon you meet muslim families (no one ventured to the top, muslims are averse to efforts). Veiled women, long bearded males, flocks of children.

Our women choose to remain barren, and happily so. Our men have reduced their penises to pee-nises.

I feel sick. I feel sick.

The French army is now issuing halal reations, did you know that?

Outlaw Mike said...

Sorry.

I meant actually the Fwench Warmy.

Salty Gator said...

nice dog!

Grumpy Old Ham said...

Dude.  You're *surprised* that there are gay figure skaters?

OTOH, I'm actually surprised, being Der Spiegel, that they didn't feature a photo from the Greco-Roman wrestling competition.

Salty Gator said...

Dude.  Have you ever been to France?  Do you know what is happening there?  in le banilieu--the suburbs--the muslim population from Algeria are congregating like the warsaw ghettos of the 1930s and 40s.  The french are banning the burqua and are considering banning the hijab in schools.  There is a huge culture war underway...it is not just the French bending over.
That being said, yes, the french are issuing islamic rations.  Why?  Because they can't pull a bosnia and just kick everyone out like it was sarajevo.  there are muslims.  better to assimilate them as much as possible.  To do so we need to ensure that Sharia is struck DOWN in every instance, that it is not an excuse or a defense.  It is ok to wage the culture war and be true to our values and constitution.
the french have been waging culture war against the entire world for close to 100 years.  check your history!

Salty Gator said...

Final point:  my relatives fought in the french army across many generations.  they also fought in the american military since before it was officially founded, and the militaries of many of nations.  I have operated with the french before and have not found them to be gay at all.  In fact, many of them are pretty bad ass.  who do you think are the majority of hte officers and NCOs in the Legion?

Butch said...

Shuuuuut uuuuup!  Don't give them ideas!

Grotopotamus said...

Aargh. Aaaaarrgggh. AaAaAAaargh.
"Another 2 females in breeding age who won't have offspring"
So the only way to show one's worth as a woman is to reproduce???

"Our women choose to remain barren, and happily so"
Implying this "choice" is wrong, as there's some implied numbers race going on, whoever's religion has the most babies wins?

AAAARRGH. YOU feel sick...

Peterk said...

gays have problems with self-confidence and pride????? fooled me

Sparticus said...

Oh, I thought that this was the new military physical training test designed by the pro-gay anti-common sense, anti-intelligence, anti-morality agenda, and spineless "yes" career over everything else leaders.

Imagine BDU tights and silk combat boots, what an awesome team builder and a force for world gayness.

MR T's Haircut said...

Dude,

Really?

Grotopotamus said...

Methinks the reason Cdr posted this is that the guy on the right at first glance looks like Justin Timberlake.
Who was pretty damn funny in his SNL skit as a backup dancer for Beyonce.
Just sayin'.

Alpha Check said...

URR,

Are Marines currently recruiting "straight" male figure skaters?  I didn't know that was the Marine recruiter's target audience.  My how times change.

Grotopotamus said...

Really?
Really?

Modifying BostonMaggie...where is the Keyboard-Hitting-My-Forehead Button.
AAARRRGGHHH.

sid said...

That defines your attitude towards Alabama alphalost.

Redeye80 said...

Jusr remember Sal, these type of events will infect our services once DADT is repeal.  You favored it, now add this to the leadership cchallenges facing our service.  Good luck with that.

Byron said...

Look here, AlphaAss, just because my opinion is different that yours or anyone else's, does not make me a bigot. It just means I don't agree with your sort of brain washing. Then again, as usual, you don't really care about the discussion, you just want to sit there in your tighty whitey's at your moms computer and snipe forums and blogs all day. I'll bet you live off pizza and Mountain Dew and you still live with your Mom. Maybe one day you'll actually get a life, but I doubt it.l

Butch said...

"Implying this 'choice' is wrong, as there's some implied numbers race going on, whoever's religion has the most babies wins?"
Uh, yes - demographics IS destiny.

Alpha Check said...

Sid, you're welcome to do whatever you want in Alabama.  I have no animosity for Alabama, I just don't see a reason to go to Alabama.  You'll either get past it, or you won't.  I do believe the only reason you came up with was family.  That doesn't apply to me.

Alpha Check said...

Byron,

Thank you for your kind and respectful comments about the topic at hand.  I particularly appreciate that you didn't devolve into name calling, or insults.

Byron said...

Son, you ain't even seen me do "insults"....

Grotopotamus said...

I (respectfully in this case) disagree.

Ask an economist about the aging boomers' projected impact. Add immigration and it's impact on the size of the labor force, stir vigorously, throw in advances in technical productivity, and watch what happens.
Ask a rabbi how the Jewish faith has survived.
Look at the SciFi writings of the 50s predicting global overpopulation. Now we're dealing with an implosion.

My point being that the track record for using demographics as reasonable model of prediction looks to me to be pretty lousy, and here the poster is using nothing more than observation of (gasp) a large (non-Christian) family whilst on vacation.  Better not head to NYC anytime soon, as from the looks of things all the Yummy Mummies from Park Slope are taking over the joint, bent on Northeastern domination with their super-trendy strollers. 

I'm not an economist, or a number-cruncher, nor do I have the powers of divination (though that would kick ass).   I simply object to the direct implication that to serve some greater good and balance things against "them" all us female of the species need to start getting knocked up (excuse me, start "breeding" like the good little mares we are). That's neurotic, and kinda gross.
My $0.02.

DeltaBravo said...

Haha.  Then Byron throws what's left over to the alligators under the porch. 

The picture makes me cringe on a cellular level.  As messed up as a baseball bat.

Outlaw Mike said...

What Butch said. Demographics IS destiny.

The way it's going now, we're going to be flushed away in a couple of decades.

If you are comfortable with that, well, that's your choice.

It ain't mine.

I've been to the western shores of Ireland, where the pitiful remnants of the Celts still cling to rocky outcrops in the Atlantic. It's where they were being pushed 2,000 years ago, as they were being replaced with Roman, Germanic and Frankish newcomers. Their descendants now make ends meet by selling Celtic motifs and folk music.

At this very moment, we are being replaced with newcomers too. Thing is, if you have to yield to a force that is actually superior in everything, yielding ain't so bad. Ancient Gaul trading in hunting and fishing for Roman civilization was a bonus for all.

This time however, we're actually yielding to leeches and brutal thugs and paedophile worshippers.

If you think that's hunky dory, I have to respectfully suggest it's YOU who are sick.

DeltaBravo said...

Oh, Grotopotamus, then you mustn't have lived in the ME and heard the comments about "we're breeding the next revolution in our cradles" and such.  While a woman's only worth is not producing offspring, she is the only one who can.  And you mustn't be familiar with what happens in a region when the Muslim extremists go from being a minority to a majority.  They are not as respectful of the rights of the infidel as we are of their rights.  They're laughing at us and the future with each little baby they produce.

Grotopotamus said...

Wow.

Outlaw Mike said...

Dude, I think there's a fair chance I've been more often to France than you, as I live 50 kloms from the border.

' in le banilieu--the suburbs--the muslim population from Algeria are congregating like the warsaw ghettos of the 1930s and 40s.  The french are banning the burqua and are considering banning the hijab in schools.  '

You span the cart for the horse. Wooooooooow, the vile French government is isolating muslims in ghettos just like the nazis put jews in ghettos, right?

W-R-O-N-G.

The Algerians and Moroccans et al live in ghettos BECAUSE THEY HAVE CHASED AUTOCHTON FRENCHMEN OUT. A world of difference!

Jesus, turning the whole picture on its head like that makes me gasp for air. So IF ONLY the French government allowed burqas the poor Algerian sods will stop torching 50,000 cars a year, right?

Sheesh.

And don't talk to me about the French army. True, there have always been outstanding French military personae, but their last major feat of arms in which they were successful was in Verdun in 1916.

Under decent political and military leadership the French soldier will probably perform in a comparable way to a US soldier. Alas, throughout history the French top dogs have often displayed irrational and outright traitorous behaviour. While christian nations were battling life or death with muslims in the Med in the 16th century, the French allowed muslim fleets to anchor in Toulon. While muslims were besieging Vienna in 1683, the French stabbed the Viennese in the back. JESUS, just 70 years ago FRENCH TROOPS AND AIR FORCE KILLED AMERICANS IN NORTH AFRICA!!! And you talking to me about checking my history??????

Sparticus said...

The wonderful new gender confused paradigm creates many technical issues. Consider urinalysis observers, at least 7 different varieties might be needed:

hetero male, hetero female, lesbian, butt pirates, just curious, Bi, and herma.

This is as fubar as the multi-colored uniforms that look like crap.

UltimaRatioRegis said...

AlphaTroll,

One thing is certain.  We sure as hell aren't recruiting YOU.  Non-hacker from jump street.

UltimaRatioRegis said...

And the quote was from the old Navy "Not just a job" commercial, dumbass.

UltimaRatioRegis said...

She seems to think so!  She is a wonderful dog, thanks.  :-D

Salty Gator said...

What the hell are you talking about?

First off I am for the culture war against sharia and islamism.

Second, you read too much into what may have been a poor comparison.  The comparison to Warsaw was population density of one particular demographic, i.e. 100% Algerian vs. 100% Jew.  Had nothing to do with who was kicking who out of where.

Third, Don't over simplify the problem of Algeria and France.  The French consider any non full blooded frenchman to be "etrangere" i.e. stranger.  You can be 3rd generation etrangere.  We have no etrangere class here in America.

Fourth, again, I'm for banning the burqas alltogether and banning the hijabs from schools

Fifth, 50,000 cars being torched is indicative of the French not taking sufficient steps to assimilate their immigrant populations, or failing to recognize that the population was immigrating to CONQUER vs to ASSIMILATE.  CONQUER means keeping your culture and either through warfare of reproduction displacing someone else's.  The means to counter conquering is to A) TURN OFF THE IMMIGRATION SPICKET and B) DIAL BACK ENTITLEMENTS

Sixth, get a life.  Any nation will do whatever is in their own best interests.  That's realism.  That's why the British, despite the special relationship, don't have unfettered access to our intel, why the Israelis sell our shit to the Chinese and sunk the Liberty, why the vichy opened fire on us in WWII, the list goes on.  And because it is in our interests, we are friends with Israel, Britain, Japan, Germany, Italy and many other countries including IRAQ and AFGHANISTAN despite having fought nasty wars with them.

And really......are you really talking about Europeans "betraying" each other?  Those bastards have been killing each other for thousands of years.  Get off your soap box.

and do us all a favor:  stop talking about genitals.  It makes you look silly and juvenille.

Salty Gator said...

I stand corrected.  That's Prisoner's Dilhemma.  My bad. Not realism.

Salty Gator said...

what about "bi curious female only as a cute bar trick or at frat parties?"

UltimaRatioRegis said...

I might actually look forward to <span> "Bi curious female only as a cute bar trick or at frat parties History Month"

Andrewdb said...

[insert standard comment on mainstream media bias, particularly the pictures they run, here]

Alpha Check said...

DB,

We know how "real men" like Byron treat boys that act like girls.  It's unfortunate that people like you encourage violence against those you disagree with, or find different from yourself.

UltimaRatioRegis said...

Hey Troll,

When you use the term "we", limit it to you and that turd in your pocket.

DeltaBravo said...

Alpha Chick, did you just call Byron a baby killer?  Did you not know the alligators under the porch comment was a joke (tying in a photo of "the porch" on another thread and Byron's colorful locus and heritage).  No one here is encouraging violence.  Silly girl!

Salty Gator said...

Would they self validate their status or perhaps, do we need a trained verifier?  Because I would like to volunteer.

Salty Gator said...

Come on, Delta.  Stop pulling Alpha's pigtails.  She gets upset when you do that.

Salty Gator said...

<span>Alpha, am I one of those guys who drag young men like Matthew Shepherd behind pickup trucks?  Because I think that men who dress up like fairies and parade around in their underwear are doing NOTHING to advance their cause of us believing that they are normal?  Nevermind that I spent my entire childhood violently defending two obvious homosexual boys from packs of others who would routinely try to beat them up after school.  The fact of the matter is that when MLK and the civil rights protestors marched, they marched in their sunday best!  They wanted to be taken seriously, AND THEY WERE.  These guys will not be taken seriously as long as they are prancing around like Thumbelina chanting "we're here, we're queer, we're not going anywhere, get used to it" while sporting matching pink thongs.</span>

Salty Gator said...

maybe when the motto changes to "We're Looking for a Few Whiney Liberals"

DeltaBravo said...

Exactly... even these two guys.... they wear the girl skating outfit?  Now, I firmly believe that some of the best athletes around are men figure skaters (guys... try holding a 120-lb female with one hand in the air while you skate 40 feet on one flimsy blade and tell me they don't have incredible strength, poise and endurance.) can't they at least DRESS like men?

I mean.... if they want to pick each other up off the ice and skate around holding a full grown man in the air over their heads that's great.  All the more power to them.  But dress like a man for the love of Betsy!

sid said...

snicker....

You must think that when you come in here with your arrogant-ass attitude -as if we were a bunch of troglodytes who could benefit from your superior knowledge and sensititivities- that we should be grateful or something?

snort.

Guess you just can't help yourself alpha... So bless your little heart.

At least you provide some cheap entertainment....

Kinda like the the bug does to this cat.

Your contortional logic is worth an occasional chuckle.

Byron said...

Deep calming breaths.... Don't ever insult me like that ever again. Because I don't care for a lifestyle, because I don't want it shoved in my face, does not mean that I would deny someone elses right to follow it. It sure as shit wouldn't mean that I would kill a child, you flaming asshole. I sincerely hope this is your third strike you big stinking pile of dogshit on the yard of the front porch, because I've hit my limit with your flagrant shit. Fuck you and the horse you rode in on, dork snorkler.

spek said...

So the only way to guarantee our way of life is to breed more like us?  Anyway, the statistics say that number of children in a household is inversely related to income and education level - NOT religion.  While The Bell Curve was widely criticized, what it DID point out was that we are breeding ourselves into mediocrity. 

This photo disturbs and annoys me far less than last weeks trip to the comissary where I had to be in line behind the 200lb, 25 year old Navy wife with four misbehaved, screaming kids running amok. 

"Leeches, brutal thugs and paedophile worshippers"?  Didn't you just define the history and current state of the Catholic Church?....

sid said...

My beef with the whole gay thing...other than the fact that they stole a perfectly good word...is that they just can't take it inside.

I don't want that crap in my face.

(pardon the pun)

Which will be a problem when Don't Ask Don't Tell ends.

UltimaRatioRegis said...

Hey Spek,

There are times the Catholic Church has little to do with Catholicism.

But one thing they did know was that they had to make more little Catholics than either Muslims or Protestants, and now that precise tactic is being used by a number of groups who wish to push out others in Europe and here in this country.

Self-validate, sounds diverse, lol.

The old green, yellow, and red light will need some new lights, brown light, pink light, etc...

Neither of them care one bit for the love of Betsy!  Brian or Steve, maybe.  But not Betsy.

I'm thrilled that you've all proven my point that this is "<span>as socially unacceptable as interracial marriages were in the 50's. "</span>

I'm also happy to have demonstrated for all of you an <span>intolerance of a "creed, belief, or opinion that differs from one's own."</span>

Thanks for stepping up to the plate everybody.  :)

Alpha Check said...

Hey Sid,

I guess you miss the days when a man could be a Queen with dignity.

I can understand why you wouldn't want "that crap in my face."

Or this crap either.

Yeah, figure skating is just downright disgusting when compared to the customs and traditions of the US Navy.  LOL

Sparticus said...

AC, what is your main malfunction?

Did the sex change fail?

Has your warrany expired?

You expose your real motivation by using the buzzword "intolerance". The word "intolerance" is as superficial and irrelavant as the word "racism" because both words have been overused, misused, and those ponys have been rode way too hard.

You can park you pony over to the hitching pole because frankly, your message and nonsense is invalid.

sid said...

A. Your queen pic link is broken.

Guess you were going with something of this vintage?

B. Yet another canard from you, not even worth rebutting.

C. See B.

And, yes, I too had to kiss the Royal Baby's belly back in the day. It was a cusrory thing, and I didn't tongue his belly button (that particular baby was ticklish).

Of course we had little issue with same gender attraction issues....

(Not that it wasn't around- but more on that in a bit)

And the whole thing is much more tame (lame) today it appears.

I used to date her.

sid said...

Homosexuals Have Always Been Around -Nothing New Under The Sun-  Vignette#1:

So, my dad was standing an inport OOD watch aboard the USS Curtiss in Pearl, Way Back When...

A gent in a suit came aboard and introduced himself as Raymond Burr, and was there to see somebody else from the wardroom. This was long before Perry Mason, or even Rear Window, and Mr Burr was minor actor out in Pearl on a USO tour. Whomever he was there to meet was not aboard at the time, and dad offered to have Mr. Burr come to the wardroom for lunch as he was getting off watch.

Dad said that as soon as he shook the man's heavily perfumed hand, he knew that Mr. Burr was -in his words- "limp in the wrist." Despite that, they had a delightful lunch. Mr. Burr was a decent guy and good conversationalist. 

Years later, after Mr Burr was outed, it dawned on me to wonder about the person he was aboard to see. I remember dad just kind of shrugged and mumbled it off when I asked....

UltimaRatioRegis said...

My neighbor's grandfather was aboard Curtiss as a gunner's mate on 7 December.

sid, What happened to the life raft filled with protein foam, water, and garbage? 

Byron said...

You've proven nothing except that you're a troll; worse, you'll go to any length to evoke a response out of people, even to the point of hinting that I'd beat a child to death. To say that is beyond the pale would be a vast understatement. I personally plan not to come back here until you and your filth is GONE.

See ya, sure as hell wouldn't wanna be ya.

sid said...

Commodore...You just sparked off my PTSD sir.

8-)

UltimaRatioRegis said...

SURE you did.... 8-)

DeltaBravo said...

Beta Chick, you mistake the reason for the deep calming breaths.  You accused a good man of being the kind of thug who would beat a child to death.  THAT is what had him angry.

You have little tolerance for people who disagree with YOU.   Nor can you read through a metaphor.  When Byron said you haven't seen him do insults... I laughed and said "Then he throws what's left to the alligators under the porch."  Meaning his insults can reduce someone to chum. 

Pity you had to take it where it didn't need to go.  Jerk.  Do you play the skunk at your family picnics too?

C-dore 14 said...

sid, Let's just say that the last "Crossing the Line" ceremony I participated in '99 as an O-6 was somewhat tamer than my first one in '76 as an O-3.

Dear Beta Chick: 
People here do not disagree with ANY creed, belief or opinion that differs from their own.  Just some.  For instance, if they had been card-carrying Communists, they never would have been allowed into the Navy.  Most everyone here is completely intolerant of Communism's beliefs and principles. Does that make them intolerant bigots?  Your logic is faulty to say the least.  And erroneous conclusions follow from bad logic.

The only point you need driven home is the one at the top of your head.

Alpha Check said...

DB,

<span>"For instance, if they had been card-carrying Communists, they never would have been allowed into the Navy."</span>

I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that you've never filled out the forms.  I don't recall political affiliation being a disclosure requirement.  I'm sure you'll offer up some proof though.

"<span>The only point you need driven home is the one at the top of your head."</span>
So violent.

He/she probably has a paper route and lives in mommy's basement.  And mommy has told him/her all along, "Don't listen to all those people, honey, you ARE smarter than everyone!"

Otherwise, how do you get such an out of calibration piece of gear as this clown?

DeltaBravo said...

Well, then, little girl, you've just given up your age, haven't you?

There was a time when some of us filled out forms for the Navy that we had to answer questions about that. 

cdrsalamander said...

Yep ... though you have to admit; the greco-roman wrestling would not be as funny.  Well - not so some.

MR T's Haircut said...

Alfalfa Check, I live in Pensacola and I like going to Alabama.  I particularly like going to the Bass Pro shop in Spanish Fort..

You are really stinking up the porch.. kinda like a fish carcass left in the bayou for the crabs.. you can smell it even after you can no longer see it..

DeltaBravo said...

"Leeches, brutal thugs and paedophile worshippers"?  Didn't you just define the history and current state of the Catholic Church?...."

Oh, that's so nice!  ;)

It may interest you to know that for many Catholics, education is a huge priority.  Some of the best educated people I know came from LARGE Catholic families.  That Navy mother at the commissary with her 4 kids may have a father deployed somewhere and it may have been a difficult day for her dealing with them. 

A gentleman would have asked her if she'd like any help, and told the little sailors to be good for mommy.  A gentleman might have even helped her load groceries in her car.

I don't suspect you are a gentleman.

Nota bene:  those little children with energy and spirit you see in a store today may be manning our ships in 14 years.  Be kind to them and be grateful for the women who are still willing to birth and raise them instead of sneering at her weight (like that has anything to do with who she is or her value as a mother or person?) Do not sneer at her ability to herd them, a task I bet money you haven't attempted yourself.  Hint:  Children often behave their worst in grocery stores and clothing stores.

Wharf Rat said...

Are you kidding me?  You're comparing inter-racial marriage issues of the '50's with the gay issue now.

You really aren't a thinker.  True bigotry was basing decisions on race.  It's not bigotry to oppose two men looking like girls in suits.  And yes, you troll, some people still think that sexual contact between two men is immoral.  That's not bigotry.  If you actually read the bible, yes, the bible, you'd find out pretty clear God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve.  And physically, God had a plan - which means the 'equipment' of Adam and Eve worked together. 

So your troll idea that to oppose homosexuality is bigotry is liberal claptrap.  And yet, I too kept a gay guy from getting stomped by a straight guy working for an airline, and the gay guy was a jerk.  Yet I still was his friend and protected him from others.

spek said...

your point about helping the lady is well taken.  i was more concerned about getting out of there and finishing my errands than anything else.  No need to insult my chivalry! My mistake, and I will approach it differently next time.  But my point is that a woman in her mid-20's having 4 children under 6 smacks of poor decision making and poor advice.  Women are more than just breeding machines, and sometimes the right answer is not to have another (or any).  As for the church, I was an altar boy in my youth and left sleeping parents at home to attend by myself on Sundays, and it wasn't until I was an adult that I had my break, which is more and more justified over the past 5 years or so.

ActusRhesus said...

No.  this separate but equal thing is a good thing. Really.  I  mean, at least now gay figure skaters have an opportunity to compete, seeing as they are so unfairly excluded from the real olympics.

Perhaps someday society's values will change and we will be tolerant enough to allow openly gay males to figure skate, but until then, separate but equal is a good compromise.

Actus, just went through for my clearance upgrade and it most CERTAINLY was a question.  However they didn't ask about socialism which is good...our POTUS would be alone in the white house with no cabinet if that were the case!

This is nothing but a top-secret military readyness program for the average German Joe Sixpack (aka "Otto Normalverbraucher") cleverly designed by the German government. You know, lying all-day flat on the couch, drinking coffee/cola/beer (depending on day-time), and endlessly watching TV he at least moves his trigger-finger whenever a TV report about the Gay Games comes next and switches to another channel. You might say that does nothing much for his physical fitness, but me whistleblower says it trains the ultimate key-function of the body. Aim high, shoot low. Now, not to be chastised as homophobe, other key-stimuli are employed as well, as e.g. Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, and some other more local varieties. Common feature is that these events/characters are self-bombastic, of drama-queen attitude, and liberal.

Either that, or the Navy and Marine Corps will no longer have Balls...

I don't mind a good debate, I abhor illogic.

Wharf,

I didn't make up the definition.

And quite pragmatically, unless you're looking to end hamanity, you have to have an method to propogate.  So...gay marriage (and they are pushing for adoption, to make up for a lack of an ability to be a sustaining union), is really a "green" idea....get rid of all those nasty Mother Gaia polluting people, so animals can go back to peeing in the stream up river of the main herd without EPA and OSHA getting into the act.

I find it puzzling as the Left is so entrenched in "it's teh EVOLULUTION!" argument (an entirely other debate for another time), yet push "gay marriage" which purposely reverses the process.  Look at as a long term strategy to get the Ultimate Darwin Award, only there will be no one to post it on the web, if they get their way.

I also think it has an element of selishness, and a desire not to contribute to the continuation of the species, while demanding government programs to assist those who have no offspring to call on in their old age for assistance.

It is a truly complex issue.

I think all figure skating is gay... so with my logic, gay males get to figure state....

Note that this is the same blog that will rag you to death if you get knocked up during a workup cycle or right before deployment though....

Huh?  We're pro crumb-crunchers ... you just need to time it right, or even better - the Navy needs an official and excuted play to replace those shipmates who can no longer work due to a bun-in-the-oven instead of doing like they do now with "plan suck it up."

You want a woman friendly workplace?  Hold FFOICOC and PERSCOM responsible to "replace all  Sea Duty personnel who cannot perform their duties due to pregnancy with TAD personnel with 45 days of being removed."

Speaking for myself - that is the only major issue I have with pregnant sailors.  Big Navy does not support their host UIC.

I was of course being sarcastic.  
There are PLENTY of openly gay olympians.  Why have a segregated event if you want equality?

xformed,

If you abhor illogic, you must LOVE Joe Biden's assertion about spending our way out of debt.
