Not a milestone.

Just another lowering of the bar.

It is so easy to give in to decadence.

It takes virtue to resist the decay of moral and cultural entropy.

That’s how they want you to act, to give up on all of America’s good traditions.

I’d rather go back to shaming, condemning, and resisting depravity as destructive of the individual and destructive of our cultural until it hides itself in darkness again.

I re-read MacArthur’s farewell address at West Point, where he so lovingly spoke of the character building that was once the hallmark of that once great institution. He warned of the type of person who even then mocked the ideals of West Point, the very same people who have now broken through the thin grey line and trashed those ideals. Forcing “gay marriage” on the Church and the Military is not about equality - it is about humiliating the last bastions of male leadership and destroying their foundations.

Here’s a snippet of MacArthur’s address. The second paragraph describes Obama in all but name.

“Duty, Honor, Country: Those three hallowed words reverently dictate what you ought to be, what you can be, what you will be. They are your rallying points: to build courage when courage seems to fail; to regain faith when there seems to be little cause for faith; to create hope when hope becomes forlorn. Unhappily, I possess neither that eloquence of diction, that poetry of imagination, nor that brilliance of metaphor to tell you all that they mean.

The unbelievers will say they are but words, but a slogan, but a flamboyant phrase. Every pedant, every demagogue, every cynic, every hypocrite, every troublemaker, and, I am sorry to say, some others of an entirely different character, will try to downgrade them even to the extent of mockery and ridicule.

But these are some of the things they do. They build your basic character. They mold you for your future roles as the custodians of the nation’s defense. They make you strong enough to know when you are weak, and brave enough to face yourself when you are afraid.

They teach you to be proud and unbending in honest failure, but humble and gentle in success; not to substitute words for action; not to seek the path of comfort, but to face the stress and spur of difficulty and challenge; to learn to stand up in the storm, but to have compassion on those who fall; to master yourself before you seek to master others; to have a heart that is clean, a goal that is high; to learn to laugh, yet never forget how to weep; to reach into the future, yet never neglect the past; to be serious, yet never take yourself too seriously; to be modest so that you will remember the simplicity of true greatness; the open mind of true wisdom, the meekness of true strength.

They give you a temperate will, a quality of imagination, a vigor of the emotions, a freshness of the deep springs of life, a temperamental predominance of courage over timidity, an appetite for adventure over love of ease. They create in your heart the sense of wonder, the unfailing hope of what next, and the joy and inspiration of life. They teach you in this way to be an officer and a gentleman.”

I watched the Postman last night. Critic of movie aside I am beginning to think some post apocalypse living would be ok, maybe fun, as long as the rest of the world has to as well so we don’t get invaded by more than illegal immigrants.

Maybe like in that second Snake Pliskin movie where the world gets shutdown. That would be a great reset button.

just got back home wiht the wife and we were talking about how many Romney stickers we still see and yet we have not seen one obama sticker, not one on our journey here in this state.

We were saying how this country has gone so far nuts and into debt and out of whack with social issues that there seems to be no getting back our country.

The idiots which stated they had no problem with homosexuals marrying never looked at the bigger picture, some stated that Govt should not be involved but ignored the bigger picture or they used that as an excuse because their homosexuals pal would be upset with them if they found out that their normal friend did not heklp them to push the homo agenda.

For all those who were so ignorant to social issues and stated that they were not important and to the one troll which stated that we shold hang ourselves onto the cross and shut up then I hope you lot of ignorant what ever goes and all about you types suffer first under this new socialist lunatic country.

A great tradition was attacked under Clinton but many ignored it, the attacks still carried on under Bush by the left and many pretended to be on our side and told us to shut up knowing if we did shut up ten they could pass their agenda and now we’ve had one of the most radical men in power in our history and now we have nothing about tradition.

Maybe the tradition party should rise with Sarah, Col West etc and to all those druggies, homosexuals, and those wanting sex with little kids, not work, stay at home and have sex with their dogs , illegals, hate guns, all can have their new country and we’ll have our new country in where the base of our party is, parts of the midwest and the south and yes lets kick out all of those who pretend to be conservatives, and liberals and anyone else who wants to change our new country.

my family has served for generations, my oldest now 15 wanted marine recon or navy seals.

I will do all I can for him not to join and have been. I even took him to the marine recruiters and asked the marine there which was a pathetic pro PC idiot does he have to share showers etc with homosexuals.

The marine said no he can refuse and then I let him know I have served, I have seen combat and he;s talking B/S.

My son now is looking more to the police as he can serve his own community and his famly right here.

My daughter is looking to be a judge to help the conservatives and I hope other parents are now saying to their children ot get in postiions of power and influence.

correct and yet we have so many cowards on our side who will not speak up about this nor will they do anything about this.

Who is marrying them?
Who said this was alright to do so because of DOMA?
Why is this being allowed wen the law states otherwise?
Who on earth is saying that the Bible should be ignored and yet married in a chapel?

Homosexuals, muslims and illegals, get the country to accept this and the get rid of those euro heritage Christian white types as a majority can now be pissed on and make up for all their ancestors rules and laws.

To think white old people or even white people voted for this radical socialist agenda

You said in another thread you are anti God, heathen what ever you call yourself, fine but seeing as you were banned and have come back as a retread or perharps you’re new then are you aware this is a pro God , pro family, pro Christian website and if you are aware why mock those who join this site on join because it is pro God?

I’m at the point where I wish the loons and the fringe and the ignorant would just set up their own liberal socialist homosexuals, radical utopia and let us live down here with tradition, laws etc.

These people , do they honestly think that millions of us will just accept their perversion and special rights based on how they have their sex.

The Army’s NEW recruiting slogan will be something like this — “Join the Army, we never leave our buddy’s behind.”

be all you can be sure makes that slogan put into another term.

9,000 rapes done on men by men last year, no surprise that number jumped up a lot when cross dressers and homosexuals can serve openly now.

We need more normal people to sign up. This is the way we can beat this.

It is not bad yet regardless of news reports like this. I have yet to see anyone prancing around.

have a pal out in Kabul who told me that there has been an incident he;s heard of but they have been covered up so to speak.

We need more officers who care for this country more than their own careers and right now it seems we have quite a few who are more PC and wan their promotion than speak the truth.

I have so much respect for the marine/Airforce etc Generals who are in charge of those services who spoke up and said no to getting rid of don;t ask right now.

We all know that survey this admin put out was bogus and when Manning was giving out secrets to wikipedia the media and this admin certainly got that covered up and changed the angle of the story

I can only hope that Revolution II will start before our military becomes one that more rightfully belongs in the movie Idiocracy.

And, to my military compatriots, please remember that you’ve sworn allegiance to the Constitution, not to a stinky, smelly, sceptic t*rd currently oozing around the White House, a t*rd that did all he (it) could to null your vote.

Sooner or later, you’re going to be called to support your pledge.

Say, maybe that Benedict Arnold chap wasn’t all bad after all? When he tried to turn over West Point to the British, he undoubtedly foresaw this travesty.

I’ve been off active duty for more than a decade now, but I recall that a military installation and chapel were considered to be part of the state in which they were located in terms of civil legal issues. Therefore, when I would perform a wedding, I had to see that the couple had gotten a marriage license from a relevant local court.

In this case, that would be Maryland and whatever county includes West Point and its chapel. I have not heard that Maryland has passed a “gay marriage” law. Perhaps they have, and I have been unaware of it. In which case, the license for this “gay marriage” would have been duly obtained.

My other thought is that this lesbian party obtained its license in another state and is having the ceremony in Maryland. I’ve not heard that there is a federal marriage license, but perhaps there is one I don’t know about.

thank you, you know I thought having kids would have got easier but boy as they become teens it;s gets harder.

There are sometimes the blood pressure goes up but it;s worth it to see them doing good in what they do and at school.

Shame most of their friends parents do nothing bt care about themselves and let the schools, MTV and others raise them

West Point is in New York, which does have gay marriage.

You’re thinking of the Naval Academy at Annapolis.
