A LOT of people from NAVAIR sent this to me, and so I will publish it here for the rest of you to ponder out of obligation to the underground, if nothing else.
I hope that at a minimum there is at least going to be a good effort to shame this through lack of attendance and interest.
Before I post-n-run, a little note to my former allies in the repeal of DADT who get all warm and fuzzy about this.
You have proven our opponents correct in this one bit. You sold the honor of a good cause - a strive for an opportunity to serve our nation regardless of how you found love and desire in your private life - and have pimped it out to the Diversity Industry.
You are letting it be used to fatten the bank accounts of the forces of division, sectarianism, and the very opposite of what was the ideal we agreed we were working for - equality.
No, instead you have degenerated and debased a good cause in to just another tool to justify fraud, waste, abuse, and the never ending search for special-snowflake attention.
I don't know what is worse, how quickly you sold out your honor, or how pathetic you look panting for attention in a circle of self-licking ice cream cones.
If you find pride is this little bucket of sad tomatoes, then yeh ... in this respect ... URR was right.
On the whole the cause was good - but the backwash of the movement - which this is - is spoiling the taste of the whole effort.
It is all, in the end, sad and pathetic.
