Gin Rummy helping out buddy Dick Cheney, his daughter has been the excuse to have enough Republicans support this garbage.
I think their books and public pronouncements are to help the left-wing now. First Bush now Rumsfeld, they didn’t fight the propaganda the left was putting out years ago when it would have done some good.
Now they keep talking and rehashing stuff that isn’t going to change in anyone’s mind and diverts attention from the issues at hand.
“the military is no place for social engineering...”
Thanks for the naval service!
I was in the army. We, obviously, were not as dimensionally constrained. But from basic to schools to normal barracks living, we always had communal bedrooms, showers and shitters.
Which just wouldn’t be right for sexual opposites.
I don’t like doing personal maintenance and evacuation chores in front of my own potential love interests. Nor do I care to inflame the lust interests of physically close other men.
The sex/gender stuff is bad enough.
But, in my opinion, the general precedent of allowing the lowest elements of pop culture to affect military-related decisions and even the UCMJ itself is a major defeat for the defense of Freedom.
I cant listen to Hannity but it doesn't surprise me. DADT was lost by them. They let the ball drop and Obama filled the vacuum with those Gates ‘studies’.
Come May, will he class of 2011 chose to skip the recuiters office, will the class of 2007 who will be finishing their 1st hitch be refuseing to re-up??? Splain that Rummy.
“an idea whose time has come.” That claim is the weakest, lamest, flakiest justification for any bad notion that comes along. Every bad decision ever made was once “an idea whose time has come.”
I’m still buying his book. 100% proceeds go to the military & their families.
very very well said.
If the likes of broken record Hannity had spoken up over don’t ask and social issues then we would not have this crap going on now.
The left wanted us to shut up about the homosexual agenda.
The 2%, frigging 2% of the population wanted to impose what their lifestyle onto us and then tell us it is normal.
Then many on the right stayed quiet, then many on the right went into the shadows and said lets not talk about it as that 2% of the population might not like us and the media might call us a name.
Hannity and others run around telling us all he’s for the troops but when we needed a voice he stayed silent so he would not anger his cocktail Manhattan liberal pals like Bob Beckel.
True conservatives would have spoken up as would true republicans but Cheney comes out then Bush’s wife, Then McCain’s wife then Rumsfeld
This only makes me want to fight their agenda even more and no way can I stand here and see a fine good institution be turned into a place where we have men dressing as women, men holding hands on base and kissing each other good bye etc.
You should, It’s very good.
agreed there are more of us than ther 2% and their supporters who follow blindly.
Here’s the problem though, they;re like the Ron paul voters, they are few but run around making the most noise.
Now we have cowards on our side too, The cowards on talk radio those who have a TV show like Hannity who simple refuse to acknowledge that social conservatism needs to be talked about, to inform viewers and listeners.
If some had any idea what the homosexual agenda is then they too would wake up, even on here some have tried to defend the homosexual agenda, thankfully most were banned by JR.
Seeing this yesterday has discouraged and depressed me more than anything since Obama becoming President.
Et tu Brute?
“But Rumsfeld says that congress, which passed the repeal bill in the waning days of the last session, has expressed the will of the American people.”
It what convoluted way can someone come to the conclusion that a “lame duck” congress (a vast many having been voted out for there stands on such issues) represent the “will” of the American People? That is illogical.
IF the newly seated Congress was to repeal it, THEN he might be able to make such a claim.
I have genuine affection for President G.W. Bush, but he surrounded himself with some terrible advisers on National Defense....both Rumsfeld and Gates are terrible losers.
When will the polygamists, beastophiles and pedophiles have their “day come?”
correct I am sick that those who have sex with animals or want 5 wives or marry their daughter cannot and it violates their civil rights.
We should all welcome peoples lifestyle and we should open our arms to them, I mean come on why not.
We should not let the Govt dictate peoples lives, leave the Govt out of it and so what if two men are dressed as women on base holding hands and kissing, welcome them
WHAT UTTER CRAP, there is a line in the sand right now and on one side is normal healthy families and marriage on the other side is anything goes and let them force it onto our children, the mentally sick are pushing their views and sick perverted lifestyle onto us.
On a kids program yesterday called degrassi they had two boys no older than 17 kissing on the bed.
WTH is wrong with these parents and people and as for Rumsfeld, Cheny Bush etc let them share showers, sleeping bags and room with homo’s and let them have these people come onto them and see how they like it .
“Bull dykes hitting on fresh-faced young recruits. And not Thing One the recruits can do about it. Nice.”
Actually, they can say, “No thank you, ma’am, not interested.” Exactly the same way a female recruit can say to a male officer who is hitting on her, “Sir! Not interested, sir!”
The recruit does not have to subsequently bunk with the male. Or share a latrine. Or a shower.
missing the point, women do not have to share with men plus homosexuals have more protection and complaints against these perverts get ignored then they will wonder why others will take matters in their own hands
now what username was you before you was banned before?
O man, what has happened to you Rummy?
I wonder what their username was before they signed up today to post that.
Agree on your post and to add, Imagine coming back from a battle, a patrol and now you see two men going at it or you go on watch and you see two men going at it.
The implications of this will destroy the fine institution but it’s not surprise they have gone after the military as they have gone after conservative conventions, websites, boy scouts, anything to do with morals.
I read this the other month and it was truly shocking to see what their rules were back in the 60’s.
It seems they are still fighting the cold war.
forgot to post the rules they follow
I hear you.
How many times have we heard people say , well times have changed or oh well it doesn’t affect me etc?
If the like of Hannity etc had talked about don’t ask and other social issues then the GOP would feel that they needed to go along with it due to pressure but instead the cowards stay silent and that is what the far left and the homosexual community want .
I am sick at heart. I just cannot believe it. How ironic is the new tagline I just attached two days ago?
I can barely stand this anymore.
It turns out McCarthy was right all along, and in reality, he should have been fighting harder...no...not him, he gave his life fighting against the tide...all of the REST of us should have been fighting harder with him.
Now, we will look back on this some years in the future, and we will be in exactly the same position McCarthy was, him with communism, us with homosexuality normalization.
Sad. This just broke something inside to hear Rumsfeld say this.
He needs the Be Still exercise at fhu.com....maybe someone can get it to him?
I was going to buy Rumsfeld’s new book.
Now that I find out Rumsfeld supports Homos openly serving in the U.S. Armed Forces, I think I will save my money and not waste it buying his book.
Excellent post. Yes, the silence of Limbaugh, Hannity, Levin, Beck and the rest on DADT, the START Treaty and other social issues was deafening. They are definetly phonies when it comes to social conservative issues.
Had Limbaugh and the rest done their jobs, they could have put enough pressure on the RINO Senators that they would have upheld a filabuster against DADT and kill the START treaty.
We hear very little about social conservative concerns from this bunch these days. All we hear about are the budget, health care or Egypt.
nail on head.
I’ve given up on them now. They for the most part sound like broken records who only talk debt, health care but never social issues and other matters which is conservatism.
I agree if the likes of Hannity had talked about don’t ask etc then this would have put so much pressure on the GOP to stop this madness and other issues but I guess money and Manhattan cocktail party liberal pals are more important./
While some still think they’re like Gods I do not and I can’t be bothered anymore to watching or listening to them .
You know wha really pissed me off is the likes of Hannity and hwo says they are for the troops.
Well many of us were talking and said that we needed a voice on this and talk radio has a platform.
Some of us called his show and asked his screen er that we would like t talk about it.
All of us were told no they were not discussing the subject today and when others called other days they got the same answer.
He’s not for the troops, he’s there for him to make a name and money.
It amazes me how many still for them and think they;re like a God or something.
It took me years but now I see them for who they are, cowards for the most part who do not want to rock the boat or piss of their elitist pals on the left.
I knew there was a reason - OK, a lot of them - why I didn’t like Rumsfeld as SecDef!
Thanks for the info about you and others calling Hannity’s radio show and trying to get Hannity to talk about DADT and other things. He is a phony thru and thru. You are right that if you ‘support the troops’, you don’t keep quiet while the left and their RINO allies push repeal of DADT to allow Homos to serve openly in the ranks.
I’ve had Hannity pegged as a phony conservative since he backed Guilianni in the 2008 primary, but thought the other major talk show host would discuss the effort to repeal DADT and other issues, but no, they chose to remain silent when they could have spoken up and possibly stopped DADT from being repealed.
spent years watching and listening to most of them but I’ve seen how cowardly or phony they are and now given up.
Have a nice week to you and your family
If the “time has come”, why does everyone have to be trained to like them?
Yes gays have served honorably, I won’t argue that point. But the difference is, they did it without making their sexuality an issue. Once it’s officially legalized, everything will change. Now gays will have to be accommodated, and one thing we know is that when gays get into a position of power in an organization, they tend to hire other gays and entrench themselves into certain areas, and promote each other.
Hey, now, dad looked good in that photo!/s
Will not buy anything from any of these so called conservatives.
It is time that the states consider seceding and forming the Conservative States of America(CSA). When the states start forming regiments and see how fast things change.
Could never happen. I don’t think a state could be on their own. California could a few years ago. Alaska takes more federal money than gives. Texas has way too much federal land. Maybe Utah?
There isn't anything in the Constitution forbidding secession. As long as it isn't part of an armed rebellion, there's no legal reason why it can't be done.
