It's about time!

*
It's nice to see that the US military can join the rest of us in the 21st century. "Don't ask don't tell" can finally be buried in the trash heap of history where it belongs. And please spare me the lecture about the camaraderie of men and women in the military being compromised because they have to serve with openly gay soldiers. I think we have been down this road before, and things didn't turn out so bad. I just wonder how many folks like Glenda Jones had to suffer before we finally got to this point.

Also tonight, I see that yet another mentally challenged business person is drawing attention to his business by letting his ignorance flow.

"The fuss over a sign in Alabama at an electronics store reading "BBQ PORK RESTURANT (sic) IS SAFEST NO MUSLIMS INSIDE" shocked its longtime owner who said he doesn't understand why it's such a big deal.

Electronic Repair Company owner Chuck Biddinger, who put up the sign last week, said he meant the message as a joke. But he said this sign, which has garnered national attention, has gotten more positive reaction than negative -- and he has no plans to apologize to anyone offended.

He told local television station ABC 33/40 that while it was meant as a lighthearted joke, it was true.

"Muslims do not eat pork," he told the television station. "It's a known fact that Muslims have tried to commit crimes in this country."

On Friday, Biddinger said he planned to take the sign down sometime soon, but hadn't quite had the time to do it -- and was still looking for something equally eye-catching. Signs outside his shop are changed every week, usually with jokes he receives via e-mail chains. " [Story]


Say Mr. Biddinger, did you hear the one about why black folks like Tylenol?

Finally, I am sure you are all familiar with Heidi Jones by now. Let's give Heidi some credit; at least she didn't say it was a black man who tried to rape her in Central Park. Heidi apparently realized the black man did it line is getting old, so she tried the next best thing: The Hispanic guy did it.

"NEW YORK (AP) — A meteorologist on ABC's local New York station was suspended Wednesday after police said she made up claims she was assaulted in Central Park.

Heidi Jones of WABC–TV told police Nov. 24 that a man had tried to rape her a month earlier as she ran in Central Park. She said the same person harassed her outside her apartment Nov. 21 at 7:50 a.m.

Police investigated, speaking to possible witnesses and canvassing the area for a person matching description she gave of her alleged attacker: a stocky, Hispanic man dressed in a black jean jacket and blue jeans, about 5 feet 9 inches tall. Police said Jones admitted fabricating the story when investigators went back to her to discuss the case.

She was given a desk appearance ticket for false reporting, which is akin to a traffic violation and does not require the suspect be taken into custody. The charge is a misdemeanor and she was scheduled to appear in court Jan. 15. If convicted, she could face a year in prison and fines.

Jones' attorney, Paul Callan, told The Associated Press (News - Alert) that his client would plead not guilty to any charges.

"Ms. Jones has had a distinguished career as a broadcast journalist and urges all concerned to refrain from jumping to conclusions about the unproven charges against her being discussed in the press," Callan said.

Jones also fills in on "Good Morning America." WABC said Wednesday that Jones has been suspended pending an internal investigation. She worked previously in Billings, Mont., and Houston and has been with WABC for about five years.

She has a blog centered on running, where she talks about her love of the sport and her time spent running in Central Park and other locations. Her motto, according to the site, is "if you knew you wouldn't fail, what would you try?" (Story)

Excuse me counselor, I don't want to rain on your parade, but she admitted to fabricating the story. What type of "conclusions" are we jumping to here? That she lied about being assaulted? That's not too much of a leap when she actually said that she made it all up.

Oh well, she was given a "desk appearance" ticket. No harm no foul. She will cop a plea, pay a fine, and her career will take off thanks to all the publicity. My girl will be on the air doing weather in San Diego before you know it.

Isn't A-merry-ca great?

Field, it is clear you know nothing about the military, and neither do the politicians who rushed to ram rod a repeal DADT. The military is serious business. It protects and defends America. To use it as a social and political agenda only weakens it.

This was not a good time to put pressure on the military to satisfy our nation's social and political agenda that forces heterosexuals to bunk with homosexuals. Hell, why don't they let women in with the men? At least heterosexuals would be with the opposite sex who also love to fuck men.

We are already engaged in two wars with the potential of another erupting. This puts undue pressure and weakens our military, not strengthen it. Likewise, our nation is weaker. Whenever they start playing politics with our military people, another war is lost...re: Vietnam.

But what do you care what it does to the military, right? What matters is that YOUR IDEA of the way things should be is what counts....damn the reality.

Our military of heterosexuals has been ruined. It is no longer the fighting killing machine it once was. The USA is no longer the military might it once was...other countries are...those with heterosexuals only=China, India, Russia, Iran and Iraq.

America is too screwed up to do much of anything anymore.

I recently retired from the Air Force after 20 years of service and there have always been gays in there so what is the big deal. I had an airman tell me that he was against allowing gays to serve. I told him that he didn't have to worry a gay guy fooling around with his wife when he deploys. He wasn't pleased. LOL

As for Heidi, this country has a long history of white women claiming they were assaulted by a minority so it's not a surprise. Sometimes it's a case of buyer's remorse.

To the guys who think that the military has been weakened... how exactly?

Do you think the gay soldiers in combat are gonna be like "oooh, no I can't shoot him, he's cute"?

Are they gonna compromise their camouflage gear by embroidering rainbows on it?

Are they gonna skip training to go shopping?

I mean, I'm curious to know how exactly having gays in the military is supposed to be such a disastrous move.

Anonymous said...

FakeAnons, there have always been gays in the military. Just look at the servicepeople with accomplishments!

Since the wingnut history began with st reagan, let me tell you many armed forces had gays that served...and some of those were the most feared around.
Hate to instruct your ignorant selves...but the ones listed also have gays serving, Duh.


What caused the loss in the last election was
1. being a Blue Dog...a form of conservaDem who ran as Liberal/Progressive and then voted with the low-infos.
2. being far too willing to give rich more and less to the poor.

Selling Welfare, Social Security, Unemployment Insurance and Medicare/Medicaid as only being for those shiftless, lazy urbans worked when the jobs weren't being shipped overseas as fast as possible by the folks who just got told they owe the lowest tax rates in living history. With an effective unemployment rate of 20%...or more...the proles are starting to see that reaganomics are an Epic Fail.
Yet, even the lowest wages since the Depression are not enough. Why else find the need to cut public employee wages and benefits? Most who toil for the citizenry make about one-third less than those in private firms...and many make far, far less. The benefits are not all that...unless somebody finds they need a 'migger' to denigrate as being lesser. Sort of the same idiocy that decrees a teacher with a Master's Degree should bow down to a prole who, by reason of procreating, is their Massa.

The gays in the military question is one of those moot things, and a societal construct.
I'm an army brat, and I'm retired from the army. One has HEARD things...

People I knew who were in the pre-WWII military always talked about gays they had known, one former navy officer said that during WWII the north pacific fleet was where they got "dumped" if they were suspected. Certain job specialties were pretty much their bailiwick in some units.
The military pre-WWII was a pretty closed society, so most people, who regarded soldiers and sailors as "dregs" didn't care or really know what went on. There were, and are regulations regarding "Acts of Moral Turpitude" which are enforced, so discretion was expected.
You can find mention of this in James Jones and Willeford's writings about the pre-war military.

Then came the draft, then war enlistments, and the "mainstream" American who had lace curtain pretentions and were good church goin' folks found themselves rubbing shoulders with all kinds of unacustommed folks, and wrote home about this sort of thing. Then it became a "problem.

Then the cold war with it's "We/They" orientation, and social winnowings of who and what was acceptable.

Then Viet Nam. The draft again, and they wanted bodies, didn't matter whose. I knew two who openly professed to be gay in my section. They didn't care who knew it, they admitted it when they were inducted. They said they had to "prove it", though, and this would have entailed committing a felony, in front of witnesses, on federal property. So, hello, Uncle Sam.

I can tell you from experience that thoughts of sex aren't really foremost in your mind when the shit goes down. About the closest thing is when someone yells "Holy Fuck"!
And the times I was wounded and they cut the clothes off of me, it really never entered my mind that the guy just might be getting a free peep show.

The "Gay Question" I would put like a former girlfriend did about such things, "It's a pound of smoke".

What do you think would weaken your military more?

Americans serving their country together, regardless of the social constructs of race, religion or sexuality, OR having to fight alongside someone who might be living a lie?

When your house is burning down or you need help, you couldn't care less if the fireman, EMT or police officer was gay. The same should go for the military. I never understood the big deal.

What they need to do is put their energy into stopping all the 'heterosexual' service men from raping and murding the women in the military, especially the numbers of black women who you hardly hear about.

As for Heidi Jones, I'm waiting to see how certain black males on this blog will still conveniently avoid talking about the evil 'white woman'.

(Gee, it was her father and her brothers who made her do it.)

And it's obvious you've never been in the military because if you have been you would have noticed the very few gay soldiers/airman in the ranks. And yes they're not usually to hard to spot.

Many of the same arguments used to postpone integrating the armed forces sexually are the same as the ones to oppose the racial integration of the armed forces back in the 1950s. The bottom line is ignorance and intolerance. Future generations will look at "Don't ask, don't tell" with disgust.

Lots of people are making a big deal out of this. I don't see why -- it's not as though homosexuality is some sort of infectious disease. I don't agree with it, but I don't want to see people being treated like lepers because of it.

Glad this thing's done with, so we all can move on to other matters.

chicago dyke said...

there have always been gays in the military and there always will be. plenty of nations have repealed restrictions on openly gay people serving, israel is a fine example and no one doubts that their military does a fine job of killing people, and efficiently at that. DADT was representative of the last gasp of official homophobia and the culture of the same. when the last of the "greatest generation" and boomers are gone, the people who remain will not care at all about sexuality. modern sexual culture and practice is very different from the Ozzie and Harriet "traditional" family norms of the past. most important, everyone should recognize that republicans have been using anti-gay measures at the ballot box for years, nothing brings out the blue hair church voters better than "threatening her marriage" with gay rights. the republican strategists have long also recognized they better seed this sort of hatred in the black and latin church as well, the situation in CA wrt Prop H8 proved that it was an effective way to continue to deny gays equal rights.

well get there, people. equality for all. the anons who complain about it the loudest are also the biggest closet cases. remind them of that when they show up. straight people think about heterosexual sex. gay people think about gay sex. the "ram rod" in the anon post up there is a rather blatant clue.

Penis Contest
Three third-graders, a Jew, an Italian, and an African American are on the playground at recess. The Jewish kid suggests that they play a new game. "Let's see who has the largest dick," he says. "Okay," they all agree.

The Jewish kid pulls down his zipper and whips it out. "That's nothing," says the Italian kid. He whips his out. His is a couple of inches longer. Not to be outdone, the African American whips his out. It is far the biggest, dwarfing the other two in both length and width. The Jewish and Italian kid are stunned and amazed. "Wow, that thing is huge!" they exclaim.

That night, eating dinner at home, the African American's mother asks him what he did at school today.

"Oh, we worked on a science project, had a math test and read out loud from a new book ...and during recess, my friends and I played "Let's see who has the largest dick."

"What kind of game is that, honey?" says the mother.

"Well, me, Sidney and Anthony each pulled out our penises, and I had the biggest! The other kids say its because I'm black. Is that true, Mom?"

The mom replies: "No, honey. It's because you're twenty-three."

FN - Something escapes me when seeing liberal minded viewpoints such as those you profess.

How do you reconcile your support of Islam (labeling anyone who has a concern as a bad person) despite muslim teachings and factual actions of murder and violence with that of your support of homosexuality?

You do realize that in those "peaceful" muslim Islamic countries homosexuals are often jailed and killed as being gay is absolutely and totally against Islam. As in every other major religion known to man.


History will show you that your right. Because of your beliefs and the PC of those in the majority getting bullied by the minority in this country, America is in severe decline. What do other failed empires in history have in common with the US right now ?

Lets see, what happened in Rome leading to the fall?

1) The breakdown of marriage and rise of divorce.

2) The loss of the traditional meaning of the marriage ceremony.

3) The rise of Feminism.

4)Increased public disrespect for parents and authority in general.

5) Acceleration of juvenile delinquency, promiscuity and rebellion.

6. Refusal of people with traditional marriages to accept their family responsibilities.

7. A growing desire for and acceptance of adultery.

8. Increasing interest in and spread of sexual perversions (homosexuality) and sex-related crimes.

Every historian – even modern homosexual revisionists – admit that Rome was riddled with homosexuals. Hadrian, one of the best emperors, traveled the empire with a youthful lover, Antinous. Caligula and Nero were accused of having sex with just about anyone or anything.

Welcome to the leftist generated end. That is unless the adults can stop you.

Whats next for you? Are you going to rally for those deprived homosexuals who cant openly love their man/boys? Thats what happened in Rome. In fact they created a man/boy love society and the previously strong Rome was for the first time invaded and lost to the vandals while all the homosexuals were busy living it up.
This is historical fact. Just look at America and really see where the changes took place and how the decline is linked.

Fran Lebowitz said something very interesting about gays in the military, she didn't understand why gay people wanted to go int the military or marry by the very nature they are against convention. There was a time when some people actually lied about being gay so not as to go into the military. It was an interestingly funny way of looking at it. However, people do have the right to part of convention or not. It was beyond my comprehension that an institution would turn someone away because he or she is gay or lesbian in this day in age, and also found it interesting that the Maverick aka Mr. Potter/McCain had a change of heart about repealing the ban. The U.S. in theory is about freedom while gays and lesbians serve in the Israeli Army. We look like idiots to the rest of the world with making small issues and turning them into larger issues than necessary.

As for Heidi Jones, I think the suspect is harassing her but found that she needed to file a false report to get the police to investigate him. Filing the false report isn't the wisest thing to do, but very little is done for a person who is harassing you because there is not much the police can do in that regard. It's interesting how pay a lot of attention of women who file false reports on sexual assault when there is a larger issue that only 39% of all sexual assaults are reported, and that number only applies to women because sexual assault against men is even lower, 10% is reported. What a complex issue because when though false reports are in the minority makes it more difficult for people to come forth who have been sexually assaulted. Unfortunate to say the least.

The reason you, Field, LAA, Rttnkid and a bunch of others on this blog can't see the big deal is because none of you are heterosexuals in the military. But straight men know there is a problem in living in close quarters with homosexuals who like men. and fighting a war with a homosexual next to them in a foxhole.

You folks think this thing is over? Let me tell you as an army brat and a Vietnam Veteran, this isn't over yet. There's going to be trouble. You can't shove same sex men on straight men and expect everything to be fine. Of course, you don't care about the majority of straight men. The hell with them, right? Count on our military weakening and unable to focus on the wars at hand.

Why don't they let the WACs serve with straight men? It is the same as having homosexuals serve next to straight men. It would be better to have a woman in the foxhole that a gay person.

Maybe the military should find a way to put the gay soldiers under the umbrella of the WACs? That seems like a reasonable solution where the straights don't have to fight a war under the influence and fear of homophobia...we really don't have time for that kind of distraction during wartime.

this is a very terrible time for the military. this is NOT going to work.

Here is a reality about the current military. Under the ban, the it forced gays to leave the military and along was the skill set they possess. Why would the organization kick them out when some spoke Arabic meaning that these individual could have been useful in the Middle East? We have a tendency to cut our noses to spite our faces. Besides the government cannot tell the private sector that is against the law to discriminate against gays and lesbians, but it certainly fine for the government to do it and the last time I checked, the military is part of the federal government.

Who said anything about leaving the military? The disruption and low unit readiness will come from within. That is there will be some implosion within the ranks. What makes you think our straight male combat troops will feel just fine about living in close with gay men?

Gay men are men who sexually like men...get it? It's weird to a lot of straight men. This puts straight men psychologically and emotionally at dis-ease. Gays and straight men need to be separated from each other. Otherwise, there is going to trouble in the ranks.

hennasplace said...

Perhaps you can enlighten us about how the repeal will negatively affect the armed services because I do not think you have nary a clue either. People will have just have to adapt like with everything else in life. Besides it will take a while for the armed services to put the new procedures in place. The fact of the matter is that you already have gays serving the military they just can't say that they are gay or lesbian. You will just have to put your grown-up pants and accept, and that's the way it is as Walter Cronkrite use to say.

I understand. But there is a reason why DADT existed in the first place. It wasn't to protect the gays, it was protect the straights psychologically and emotionally. I don't FN residents to see very deeply the impact gay men can have on straight men in the military..esp our combat troops. But what do you care? you don't have to do the fighting or be in the military. You just see our military as just another institution that needs to be changed to societal social needs. It's going to cost this country dearly in the sense that our military won't be as focused. Most military folks are Christians, esp COMBAT troops. There WILL be trouble on the battlefield and it's going to cost lives.

But again, what do folks like you care? you have no feelings. Hell, you are the one who laughed at degrading people by calling them "white trash" and justified it. You are not alone, so-called FN folks on this blog agree with you. That's because they are sooo accepting and respectful of others.lol

The same argument can be applied to women serving in the military. Or Blacks serving in the military.

Fearmongering gets pretty old when the same old material's being used over and over again. Step up and be creative every once in a while.

Given the nature of anonymous postings and the general nature of the Internet, I'm not at all inclined to believe you actually served in the military, let alone serving in the Vietnam War. And I have respect for those serving and those who've served. I just don't have respect for assholes. Or assholes who hide behind their uniform and medals.

"I don't FN residents to see very deeply the impact gay men can have on straight men in the military..esp our combat troops. But what do you care? "

Exactly what is it about a gay man that distracts a straight soldier from focusing on his mission? Or is it the fear that the straight soldier will end up being seduced into the gay lifestyle if he hangs around his gay counterpart long enough? Or better still, is it the armchair chickenhawk pretend-generals projecting their fear of giving into their own latent homosexual tendencies, which could potentially alienate their family and friends while causing them to question everything they knew about themselves? Is this why they are so hell-bent on "praying the gay away" and bashing them so they can emotionally distance themselves from their deep-lurking urges?

The gay men in the ranks are not going to be focused on chasing ass in the combat zone. They will be focused on the same thing that their straight counterparts will be focused on -- staying alive and getting the mission done. You're not gonna get your ass felt up in the foxhole. Unless you want to. But the gay soldier's gonna be more focused on saving your ass rather than feeling it up.

"Anon, face it. Most of the bm on this blog are ones who covertly support other bm who degrade our bw. They are also in that high percentage of 'dl' bm. It is clear 'why' they are against DADT."

Are the "bm" and "bw" abbreviations just that, or is it some covert way of dehumanizing Black women and men while "supporting" them at the same time? Or maybe it's because I find using shorthand for ethnic descriptors somewhat disrespectful.

Accusing the fellas here for being "on the downlow" for not supporting DADT.....man, you anons are really grasping for straws.

How does DADT project heterosexual males in the service? One would think that when a person enters the military would not only build his or her physical abilities, but emotional and mental stability as well. The argument doesn't make any sense to me because you are suggesting that heterosexual males in the military so fragile that they need a rule in order to protect their egos. This is life and damn it you are just going to have to learn and deal with. Buck up dude and put on some grown-up pants. Part of being in the service is to become an adult and learning to deal with others as everyone isn't going to look and be like you.

@anon 1243 wow, you're taking me back. I heard this argument years ago from some religious conservative trying to explain why homosexuality was bad for the country. Uh well I have also had a history class or two and from what I recall the rise of homosexuality didn't cause the fall of Rome. Let's see if I can remember from AP European History, bear with me because this was about 20 years ago. 1. The Roman empire expanded too rapidly and because too large. Rome annexed many different ethnicities into the military and government that had no historical allegiance to Rome thus were not really thrilled about the prospect of defending it from invaders. 2. The government was weak due to the size of the empire. Kinda hard to communicate the latest and greatest edicts from the emperor when you have no telephones and/or carrier pigeons, not even morse code. I could go on but scapegoating teh gays for the fall of Rome and equating that to a modern empire is quite weak. I'm more enclined to believe Kevin Phillip's ideas about the fall of empires also 1. the reliance on a depleting source of energy 2. the overreach of the military and 3. over-religiosity.
@ anon 1523, if you think the problem with regular FN posters is we don't know what we're talking about then I make the same challenge I made to the anon that stated it knew more about atmospheric science than me choose a name and let's see who really knows what they're talking about. Hell, I'll let you choose the subject. Your move.

I don't recall assigning a race to their attackers. Are you guilty? Do you know something that we don't?

Good for you. I hope you used two condoms, while the both of you used saran wrap to cover your pelvic areas. Too much of our tax money is being milked into the STD clinics. And we all know you can't afford to dish out anymore child support.

Wow. So your history class in essence taught you that multiculturism and lack of assimilation to the nation is not a good thing. Interesting. Sounds like you had a real teacher and didnt actually attend a totally affirmative action leftist college.

I think the part either your teacher or you left out that is most important is the handouts. Rome became a nation that heavily, heavily taxed its businesses and creators in order to pay for and appease its non contributing citizens and buy thier favor. This led to businesses working undercover and out of the empire and more of a decline in tax revenue despite the oppressive taxes. Eventually they were broke due to the taking class. Similar to today in the US where 49% of Americans do not pay taxes and "deserve" government handouts which are really taxpayer forced wealth redistribution. It wont be long now brother till it all comes crashing down. Blame the knob gobblers, the handout kings or whomever you like but at the end of the day when the 10-12% of the country gobble up the majority of the fruits of the labor while lambasting the creators. It dont last long.

Given the history of the word "picnic" I thought you should know; and it's been strange that the other ads don't carry that..


Picnic does not have a racist etymology, that's a modern urban myth. It's true etymology is believed to lie in the 17th century French phrase 'pique - nique' referring to people who bring their own wine to restaurants.

@anon 1349. Sure we can point out the lower class dragging down the country or we can actually listen and read economists that point out that the wealth gap is a bigger problem than "handouts" that conservatives seem to focus on. Maybe we can find that ficticious welfare queen Reagan made up out of thin air to get folks riled up about the poor while the top 1% take more and more.

Also I know of no leftist affirmative action colleges. Did you go to a conservative Christian college that teaches humans and dinosaurs lived on the planet at the same time and the earth is only 6,000 years old? I bet you did huh?
