Pentagon plans to hold Gay Pride month event

We are done as a country when this type of nonsense is done at the Pentagon. What a waste of money & time & effort....to celebrate sex???

"Pentagon spokeswoman Eileen Lainez said the Pentagon is planning its first event for LGBT Pride month, which will be held later in June. Details about the event had yet to be finalized, she said."

"the Pentagon is planning"....really?, who exactly is doing this planning? Those are some government jobs we could do away with for sure. Our military is gonna celebrate transgender? What the hell is that anyway? We are done.

Hahahaha. dublindave is talking about a PELOSI prediction that the Supremes will uphold Obamacare 6-3. That's the "news" on Twitter.

Extraneus

Is there a genessis to the extraordinary inanity of Duda the last two days?

I think it all stems from when he started fantasizing about sex.

I wonder if they're run the Monty Python close order drill sketch....dip, 2,3,4 sashay, 2,3,4.....

Hahahaha. dublindave is talking about a PELOSI prediction that the Supremes will uphold Obamacare 6-3. That's the "news" on Twitter.

News is spilling out from every corner of the beltway that it's going to be upheld.I didn't hear of any pelosi blurb.

Check Fox.They're discussing it as we speak.

MarkO

Only 6-3? Why not 9-0. After all, we cannot be serious that there is a Constitutional issue involved with anything the Nance wants.

SCOTUSBLOG reports that the Justices did their usual Thurs conference yesterday, Flag Day notwithstanding. A bunch of radio reporters released a letter asking the 9 Justices to live broadcast any reading of the decision, or alternatively release a tape immediately after the Court session reading the opinion ends. SCOTUSBLOG's commentator put the chances of a live broadcast as zero.

DoT, they let you read Rasmussen while under anesthesia?!?!?

You don't even look groggy, buddy.

My pistolas are cocked and ready. next person who responds to Duda gets it between the eyes.

You can't trust Fox news, duda.

Jim Ryan

I'm just going to steal this from Dusty:

“Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded- here and there, now and then- are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty. This is known as “bad luck.”

–Robert A. Heinlein

“We had reversed the recession, avoided a depression, gotten the economy moving again,” … “But over the last six months we’ve had a run of bad luck.”

– Barack Obama, August 2011, Decorah, Iowa

I will chalk that up to bad timing, Clarice.

:-)

Did I miss something with DoT? Hope you are ok, buddy.

Janet-that's the kind of nonsense that has our best and brightest who thought it would be a career out after one enlistment. So sad.

NK-you mean the people who were planning to live at our expense? the ones that are well paid in public sector because of what they are willing to foist on us? who actually lack marketable knowledge or skills? Or any sense of the consequences of what they are foisting?

I think fast food or walmart are good places to really get a feel for the masses you were trying to screw with.

Q: if hypothetically people aspired to have high performance computing keeping track of lots of data about people, which companies have a business model that would benefit from such an official aspiration?

Especially if it could be quietly incorporated into something like what was sought in kyoto or copenhagen or now rio+20?

Had knee replacement surgery, TK.

I hope your knee is treating you well before too long, DoT.

That's your protective side trying to keep me from harms way,that's naturla instinct.However, sooner or later you'll learn that you can't always be there protecting the ones you care for,hun bun.

My sources have told me it's going to be a 6-3 decision but people are afraid to report on it in case they're burnt.Still,it's as good as sold.Apperently they've accepted the complete constitutionality of the law.

Jane

I too am skeptical that Holder will step down, and I pray I am wrong.

DOT, are you dancing yet? A friend of mine had knee replacement surgery a while back. She is dancing her butt off these days, but it took a while. So hang tough.

I have one question: Why do we even have a Congress if Obama does whatever he wants and no one says a word?

dublindave

So, my sources are telling me that it was the top Republican leadership who pressured the right side of the court to uphold the entirety of the law.It was becoming clear that by opposing even the most popular aspects of the law,banning pre-exisitng conditions etc,Republicans were setting themselves up for six weeks of negative media attention followed by a loss of valuable independant votes needed to pave their way toward 270.

The RNC has been floating the notion of supporting JUST those positive aspects of Obamacare to stave off this PR nightmare but those provisions don't work without a mandate that streams alot of revenue toward the Insurance companies.Lot's of unhappy Insurance company folks have been up to the hill in the past two weeks killing that idea.

So,the RNC hopes the worsening job numbers will counter the bump Obama will get from the SCOTUS upholding his healthcare law.


That's politics,folks,Ya'll got stabbed in the back and you didn't even see it coming.

Janet

Exactly.

daddy

IMHO Holder will not leave until Obama leaves.

He is here for the duration.
