Chucks

I just love the thought of the mooseslims in shitholistan figuring out that that Marine that just shot him is a gay American Jew. As he bleeds out, in excruciating pain on his way to meet his 72 Janet Reno's.
By the way, the Ninth Circus Court Of Appeals just re-instated DADT while the Obama administration appeals.

Totally Stupid Conservative

You know it chucks, I once pumped out a holding tank on a winnebago and thought that Nixon was Mohammad. I relizse that now that Paul Harvey rigged it all so he could install Carter to boost his sagging radio show. I also believe that Ayds candy was a homer sexual plot to destroy Harveys show, so Caramel is a bitch.

joanie

We know what you love chuckles: gumment healthcare for yourself but no one else; gumment paychecks for yourself but no one else; and the fantasy that you're carrying a weapon on Mideastern sand but will never be shot because you live your fantasy through the deaths of young American kids.

You are despicable.

BlackRhino

I agree with Obama, we need to settle this in the legislature. I’ll say again, if you have a chance to listen to conservative Jerry on the Stephanie Miller show May 27th I think you’ll think twice about your ideology.

the big fag

If this doesn't get solved in the Congress, we'll hear forever about those "activist judges" ramming this down our throats, Even if 70% of Americans agree it should be in the shitcan of history.

Chucks

You should be running NPR Bla'M. You may be about as far left as anybody I know, but you would not have blown a guy out for expressing an honest concern.
You might have flipped him shit for the next two years, but it would have been done with wit.

BlackRhino

But Faux picked him up with a raise. Well after losing the last black person. I figure they’re restocking the quota. Here’s a sample of the crazy…

During the 2008 presidential campaign, Jones says two of his coworkers said they wouldn't feel comfortable having a black president. At that point one of men turned to him and allegedly asked, "Am I offending your blackness?"

Ah, the just wait theory of kicking it down the road. Why should gays and lesbians be forced to wait for equality, BR?
Pres Obama could end Don't Ask Don't Tell today with a stroke of the executive pen. Yet he doesn't.


And the deal with 'conservative jerry' is too funny. you DO realize that shows have people call up to play the straw man to allow the host to make 'em silly, right?

Puget Sound--Why doesn't BR demand equal rights?

Hey BR
Why don't you tell it to the many gays and lesbians currently serving or those that would love to serve this country but can't for a fairly ridiculous reason.


"Lt. Dan Choi, a gay soldier discharged from the U.S. Army under "don't ask, don't tell," said Thursday that he won't vote for President Obama again due to a recently successful effort by the administration to freeze a repeal of the military protocol.

"You have lost my trust and I am not gonna vote for Barack Obama after what he did yesterday," Choi said in an interview with CNN today.

Earlier in the day, White House Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett attempted to explain the recent undertaking by the Department of Justice to appeal a ruling by U.S. District Judge Virginia Phillips which halted "don't ask, don't tell" as an unconstitutional practice.

"It is a law, and we are a nation of laws. It was passed by Congress and so we are looking for Congress to repeal it," Jarrett told CNN. "Until Congress repeals it the Justice Department is doing what it is required to do and that is to defend the laws of the land."

Jarrett went on to claim that there were members of the gay community who understood the nature of the situation and were working with the White House to pressure Congress to take up the repeal of "don't ask, don't tell."

Choi responded by telling CNN that he isn't one of those so-called people, and explained that he thought such a statement was ridiculous because it neglected what he saw as the true role of the courts in a system of checks and balances on the government.

"When Congress enacts a law that's unconstitutional, whose job is it to strike it down? The court's," Choi said. "I understand the judicial branch is now the only branch of government that is filling its mandate to the Constitution."

Puget Sound--Why doesn't BR demand equal rights?

Too bad BR couldn't avail himself of some of the fine civil rights era books -such as Juan Williams 'Eyes on the Prize'- to get a better perspective of what it means to tell people to 'go slow' when asking for equality of treatment.
Easy for BR to council same when it's someone else getting the shaft.

KS

The Don't Ask don't tell should be vetted legislatively and taken out of the courts. I also agree with Juan Williams's approach that he mentioned in "Eyes on the Prize" of proceeding with caution in a sensitive and volatile issue such as this for our military. Sec. Gates, whom I respect has also echoed the same.

Damn, I had no idea. Do you mean there a people that take on silly extreme positions just to discredit the movement they say they represent, you know, like KS?

Puget Sound

Actually, more like Sparkles or ph(J)oanie.

Nice to see ya cavalierly treat the rights of others by telling them to wait.
Whatsamatter, BR? What was Lt Dan Choi saying that so worried you? You aren't getting all political on us now, are you? One of the few things I admired about Pres Obama was the fact that he would end this ridiculous 'don't ask, don't tell' policy.

"When Congress enacts a law that's unconstitutional, whose job is it to strike it down? The court's," Choi said. "I understand the judicial branch is now the only branch of government that is filling its mandate to the Constitution."

I'll be gone for a few days but we can take this up on my return. Don't go Coils on me and scamper away.

wana fight? wana fight?

put up ya dukes... ya bastid.

Example please ?

I'd say you are reading too much between the lines. There is no shortage of irony on this blog.
