The treachery has no limits.

Mutiny in the ranks is not far down this road.

The military instituted a code of conduct for a reason - unit cohesion.

Obama is buying his stooges in the military too. Confirmed by a good friend of mine who is now going to retire “after what I have seen going on and the horrid leftist policies in the [——]. “

The disease has spread too quickly. There is nothing or no one to have faith in anymore.

Steel on target is all I cared about when I served my 22. All the rest is eyewash. As far as congress screwing over retirees, nothing new under the sun. Won’t be the first time, won’t be the last. Politicians watchout for themselves, first to last and nobody, I mean nobody else. Charlie Mike

That’s the bottom line. I see no one with the best interests of the country at heart.

We’re in a Marxist dominated Oligarchy.

Noises are made but no one crosses the line. Their families have been threatened.

Talk about “While we were distracted.” Obama/Democrats beat Republicans with a club over payroll tax deductions, but essentially lied and said that it was paid for by a mortgage tax.

From Zero Hedge:

If Obama give the order for the American military to fire on its own citizens, this is part of the strategy to remake a military that will carry out his orders.

“We’re in a Marxist dominated Oligarchy.”

That’s right. I call it a Republicrat oligarchy.

What concerns me is all of the “Anybody but Obama” crowd that thinks whoever the GOP (Going On Progressive) party nominates will fix the corruption in D.C.

We are in the mess we are now as a country because Dubya failed to prosecute the Clinton cartel’s corruption.

Four years with a socialist RINO progressive is just as bad as four more of Obama. It might delay the loss of our republic somewhat, this country will still LOSE.

It does not matter what the people in Congress say. It does not matter what the President says. These are people doing something wrong. The Congress can say they are okay. The President can send them congratulatory letters till he is blue in the face. It will not change anything. A man and a man or a woman and a woman is just perversion. It always was. It always will be. Nothing has really changed.

Sexual Perversion was, is, and always will be an abomination. Hold tight to your beliefs. Do not let the weak minds who will buy anything change you. If we hold tight, we can break this cycle of accedence to decadence. Someone will come along who will tell it like it is and the gay marriage and other twisted stuff will collapse. People will return to the straight and narrow. Just watch.

We are officially like the UN. We will fight no more wars, just send a few troops to oversee something. Strike that, the only fight we will have in the future is possibly with Israel. Obie would send all he has against them. I hate to be low on this Christmas day but agree we are in deep trouble. May God have mercy on us.

God help us if we are ever involved in REAL naval warfare, and not the Peace Corps Afloat.

Like the Battle of Leyte Gulf. Or Okinawa, where we lost more ships (sunk or out of action) to “cruise missiles” (Kamikazes) than we have in the Navy today.

The PC gay commissars won't be much help when the missiles slam into the hulls. An easy way to imagine modern naval warfare is the missile hits, and you have 25% KIA and 25% WIN in seconds. Then you must keep your ship afloat and try to keep systems operable.

It won't be like an episode of Star Trek, where the Enterprise gets pushed around a bit.

And we are putting girls and fairies into that future cauldron.

God help us.

Maybe some kind of re-birth after global calamity and the end of the United States of America and other countries. Things like this don't turn around. When God lets things progress this far it is terminal. The culture, the political system, the country, is lost. Sorry not to share your optimism.

Between Free Trade destroying our industrial base and the PC crowd ruining the military, there is really nothing left. Is it me or is our swirling around the drain picking up speed?

I seem to remember reading about a once great empire that became lazy and homo sexualized from the top down. Hmmm, what was the name of that empire....

I called the "Morning Majority" on WMAL and told them everything that is going on now politically and economically can be fixed or is transient except the repeal of DADT. I told them that this what historians will be interested in 100, 200 years from now. I told them this is huge and is a seminal event that changes everything. They pretty much thought I was crazy.

I think the analysis at the link is incorrect. That extra fee attached to mortgages doesn't sunset on Feb 29, 2012. It continues in perpetuity. Everyone who finances after Jan 1, 2012 gets hit with this fee and it continues for the life of the mortgage. Just another way to screw those who "unfairly" have the means to purchase a home.

The day is soon coming where some lunatic country is going to develop a real "drone". They will start taking out diplomats, American patrols, American embassies, and even try at warships.

While I am aware that the satellite technology is "controlled" by the Americans, and that the signals are broadcast encrypted, the fact remains that if the signals can be encrypted, they can be un-encrypted....especially, with help from somebody like the little pimply faced scum who helped Julian Assange.

The reaction, when it happens, will be interesting to say the least, from our President and Generals, whoever they (he/she/it) are.

I’m a military retiree (Air Force) who lives in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia and I had a front-row seat for last week’s “Kiss Heard Round the World,” between two lesbian sailors at Little Creek. One of them is a Petty Officer on the USS Oak Hill, which was returning from deployment. Her “partner” is a sailor on another vessel ported at Naval Station Norfolk, as a recall. The returning lesbian won the ship’s lottery to be first on the pier and share a kiss with her “girlfriend.”

Sadly, there was nothing illegal (under current DoD policy) with their little romantic display. What was more nauseating (to those of us who have served) was the Navy’s scramble to publicize the event.

When the Oak Hill docked and the lesbian petty officer puckered up, camera crews from all three local stations were on hand, along with reporters from the two local papers and the Associated Press. While many military homecomings are covered by the local media, I haven’t seen that level of attention in quite a while. And everyone knew that had the lottery winner been a heterosexual sailor, there would have been little interest or publicity. But because the petty officers were openly gay, it became front-page news around the world. I even saw the kiss a second time on “NBC Nightly News” where Brian Williams used the incident to illustrate how well the repeal of DADT is going.

As I’ve said in other posts, the real impact of this “policy change” won’t be felt for several years, until the economy finally improves. At that point, service members with marketable skills and experience will vote with their feet and abandon the PC military, which is becoming more interested in activist agendas than training and readiness.

The impact will also be felt in recruiting; most of today’s recruits come from the south and the far west, and most embrace traditional values. Many of them will shy away from serving in a military that openly embraces homosexuality. And if past recruiting trends are any indication, the armed forces won’t be able to make up the difference in places like San Francisco and New York.

"There are no conservatives left in American politics."

That's because there are more homos in the families of the spoiled, rich elite, and they won't allow anything negative to be said about anything that their family members indulge in--not in corporate offices or government offices.
