Y’know, we get laughed at about “slippery slope” theories. But every time, we get proven right.

How long before they demand pedophiles be allowed to serve ‘openly’?

I read an article today titled, “Liberals always go too far.” The author said that each time the liberals won something, they demanded more, and then more. There is no end to what they’ll demand.

Klinger was decidedly not transgendered. He was spoofing, trying to get a section eight ticket out of Korea ... in the TV show.

(Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals) "An organizer must stir up dissatisfaction and discontent... He must create a mechanism that can drain off the underlying guilt for having accepted the previous situation for so long a time. Out of this mechanism, a new community organization arises.... "The job then is getting the people to move, to act, to participate; in short, to develop and harness the necessary power to effectively conflict with the prevailing patterns and change them. When those prominent in the status quo turn and label you an 'agitator' they are completely correct, for that is, in one word, your function—to agitate to the point of conflict." p.117

"Obama learned his lesson well. I am proud to see that my father's model for organizing is being applied successfully beyond local community organizing to affect the Democratic campaign in 2008. It is a fine tribute to Saul Alinsky as we approach his 100th birthday." --Letter from L. DAVID ALINSKY, son of Neo-Marxist Saul Alinsky

Next thing, they’ll demand that all uniforms be 100% gender-neutral, that all barracks have latrine accomodations for males, females, and those who cannot decide.... Tricare will be forced to pay for gender-changing hormones, surgeries, and psychological help....

Sounds fair - let's do away with the age restriction, too:
"75 and having a hard go at it with Social Security checks? - join the US Army - they can't say no"!

Blind, cripple? "There's a place for you in the US Air Force".

Foreign natioanl? "Chinese, Ugandan, Peruvian - come aboard the US Navy - we've got a berth for you"!

Whatta crock.

Forget slippery slope! Like another FReeper said, they’re not even stopping to celebrate.

This is what is meant when we are told not to give into the demands of the perverse. These are the same barbarians who brought down Rome from within.

To preserve our way of life; to preserve the meaning of humanity under the scope of Christianity; to maintain the integrity of our fighting forces; and for downright common decency, we cannot let this happen to us.

They are following the model of the anti-smoking lobby. Keep on nibbling but never stop.

Start out with something "reasonable" like "All we want is our own section in restaurants" and look where that has gone.

I’m thinking free sex-change operations in military hospitals. It gives a whole new meaning to “Be All You Can Be”.

There was an episode when a pyschiatrist was going to grant Klinger a discharge he just had to agree he was a homosexual. He never wore the dress again!

They’re all including in transgender/transsexual because even they cannot agree on how to identify what they are.

Bottom line...they’re all disfunctional and abbynormal.

Yep and our politicians are helping this nation to collapse.

The US is under a cloud of deception as no other time in history and it's going to get worse

Interesting is, as recorded, any time a nation has turned it's back on God they are 'invaded'...and it isn't always by a military force.

I think a Christian doctrine being part of the community discourse is critical to returning us to a nation of dominance.

Enough of this “guilt America” bullshit, too. I’m proud to be part of a nation that eschews the idea of open homosexuality in our military. We are meant to be a nation of men. Men of might, not men in tights! What’s next, replacing the military barber and clippers with a butch scissor-shaker named Todd? “The Taliban will LOVE this cut, I promise.”

Our best days are ahead of us, but we, as a nation, have to speak up against what our government is doing to us in the name of political correctness. Sit down, shut up, work, eat, play, sleep, consume. Not for me, thanks!

‘Give them an inch and they want a mile’...This was so predictable.

It’s like the destruction of traditional marriage.....What’s next? Marriage between blood relatives? Muslim men saying their religious freedom to have up to 4 wives is being violated?

The repeal of DADT opened the closet door and now they will attempt to dismantle the entire ‘house’......OMG *

Really? Borama still has time to take this nation further down before he goes....remember last Christmas with Obamacare? and he's not done yet.

Look what Clinton followers did before they left the Whitehouse....imagine what those there will do when they leave?

I do not share your idea our best days are ahead....I have hope we come out of this but the fact America is fast becoming anything but a Christian nation does not give me much hope that this fall from grace can be stopped any time soon...short of Gods hand intervening into this nations affairs.

Yes, we have an election ahead....but Romney certainly isn't going to do the trick, he'll betray us in a heartbeat as always...Perry will hand us over to the globalist agenda....Bachmans loosing her base fast and Cain, though a good man, simply hasn't governmental experience unless he runs with Newt who could offset that...and Palin has still not determined her path.

I personally do not think any of them truly want to take the fall when this nation goes down....and it may be Obama wins again for that reason..and rightfully takes the fall for destroying this nation.

Come on people! There aren’t millions of homosexuals beating down the doors at the recruiting stations to get in. The Democrats only wanted a few who needed healthcare for life as the “spouse” of a service member. Oh, and a few more to go to the basic training units to recruit for homosexuality. They’re afraid everyone will see what a big, fat lie they’ve told about all the homosexuals just waiting to get into the military. Have to keep the ball rolling now so no one looks at the truth.

Homosexual ACTIVISTs are NEVER satisfied. Because their lifestyle is so unsatisfying, I digress.

after transgender or in tandem. The next to make the front pages is Like Chiefs Clubs, Officers Clubs, Enlisted Clubs. Now military bases will be required to have a GAY CLUB. Just a matter of time.

Na, the solution is to just not consider gender for housing or training units. Just mix them all willy nilly......I’m sure the libtard womyns groups would be all for forcing women to shower with men.

Everyday it seems we see more depressing trends , all pointing to the downfall of the country we grew up in. Hope ‘n Change, that’s what this so called president promised, and he’s delivering that in spades. Trouble is he’s giving the dregs of society hope, because he’s changing the country to suit them.
