I'm probably busting Frankie's chops more than I should. I've never had the opportunity to speak to a veteran of war candidly. I've worked with plenty of them in my career. But I was usually involved with them in another capacity.
When I was a kid, my dad used to take me hunting. He would kill squirrel, rabbits, quail... And every time he killed something I cried. I hated the sound of the gun. And I hated that something died. I'm sure it embarrassed him, especially when we were hunting with his friends.
As I grew up and learned more about being a Christian, I could never understand why people fought wars, killing one another; even though killing is a sin.
So, the idea of killing to me is so foreign; I just can't wrap my mind around it. I'm not above protecting myself from physical harm. But I've never bought a gun. I think I said this before; my grandfather's gun is in my possession; a graduation gift from my dad. But it's been dismantled since I got it nearly 25 years ago.
I understand that people do feel compelled by many different reasons to join the military. And I guess I can feel a certain degree of empathy for them; especially those kids who go in order to meet some need (like finances) in their lives. And to be drafted--that would be tough. We're so engrained to believe that if you're drafted, you go; no questions asked. And if you don't go, you've done the worst possible thing an American can do.
But if you know that going into the military you are going to face another human being--someone with kids, a promising future, hopes and dreams--and try to kill him or her; I don't understand how a person can do that.
Look at the Nazis... Were they being patriotic by following their German leaders as they rounded up the Jews, gays, prisoners, gypsies, etc. and murdered them by the millions? From our perspective it would seem like a no-brainer that you simply do not do such things.
But there was a period in our history where we--U.S. citizens--rounded up Native Americans and did pretty much the same thing. Then there was slavery. People here and around the world thought we were barbarians for doing these things. But we did them.
Frankie's right... I do get off on tangents sometimes (not always).
But somehow it fits with this discussion.
Does a wounded veteran--someone who is unable to have children--have more rights to marry than someone who is gay; especially if the argument being thrown around is that gays shouldn't be able to marry because they are "sterile", as "Kimare the Stain" likes to say?
I think that's how we started this conversation...
Something we have in common. To this day, I won't hunt. Life IS precious.

They need to feel like the bond they have with friends is more "special".
Thy don't have the "I'm married and you cant be" way to feel "special" anymore so they have to fall back on a different one.

100% of the time, eh?
Why is it that marriage equality keeps on winning in the courts, and even in public referendums?
Could it be that your "statistic" has no basis in fact or even reality?
Because your polls are lies. Reality is a little different. Subversion and infiltration are the name of the game. You've been told before.

What a lame disrespectful post. "They" includes you moron. Unless you are lying about your service. Which wouldn't surprise us at all.
He claims to have been a Coastie. At home while the battles were elsewhere. Rear with the gear. IF he even served, which I doubt. Just a REMF, at best...

#1 Because I am an American, I actually believe in the land of the free and the home of the brave, I am against an intrusive government that tells you who you can marry and who you cannot. I defend Americans, regardless of race, creed, color, sex, religion, orientation or national origin.
#2 The common man is not you, a growing majority of people in the US are in favor of same sex marriage, businesses are rejecting people that are homophobic and will not tolerate it in the workplace.
#3 explained in #2, you are the one not accepted, except at Chick a Fill ( chuckle )

Hi, just want to say a few things. War, good or bad is and will be part of mankind. I think that you need to understand a few things. Freedom is not free. In 1776, a war was needed to become the Nation that we have strived for. Many times through out our History, war has been a turning point. The War of 1812, the Civil war, WW1, WW2.
I will conseded that often we act as the worlds police force. That is not the problem of the men and women who serve for our country. That needs to be addressed with Congress and The President. Please don't disrespect the very people who choose to protect your freedom.

Nowhere in that flag waving,(or was it script reading?) did you mention Folsom Street and How Berkeley can YOU be and the other decadence that goes on at "pride" parades, etc.
And you're damned straight the Common Man is not me. I pride myself in logic and recognizing there are consequences for our actions, which you apparently haven't a frickin' clue. You wanna leave such a world as Folsom Street for your descendents, shitferbrains?
Your third little attempt at humor proves you're only schoolgirl age. You don't have any family. You're just here because you're a decadent imbecile.

By the way, shitferbrains, Kodak ran roughshod over a man's rights because of a communist "human rights" outfit. It's another example of your being "accepted" through Fear and Extortion.
May all you homofascists choke on your own stool.
One of my uncles was a Regional Director for Kodak. He got cashiered in the late 80's. Been with them since the 60's. Suddenly out the door.... He retired, early, to Ft. Lauderdale.

Aren't you of an age that you might have been eligible to go to Vietnam, either voluntarily or by draft?
Tail end of Vietnam. Wasn't called up. Had a higher calling.

Did you use the Bible for your war theology, or that voice in your head?
