    Points for wit if not wisdom.

    If you care to dispute the wisdom, feel free. But you don't have any military experience, and lack even a basic understanding of what we do and why we do it, and yet you feel that your grievances outweigh the necessity of our remaining fully mission capable. Your comment about not caring what I call a Soldier or what he calls me back reflects that ignorance. Even two persons of equal rank couldn't get away with that kind of insulting conduct, much less subordinates and seniors. It would be, as the saying goes, "contrary to good order and discipline", which is the most important aspect of the military culture. Without that, we are simply an armed mob in uniforms, and mobs lose wars.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    Actually there are ads about fatherhood. National Fatherhood initiative.

    But you are right about ads and support for non-gay bullied kids. It's like they don't exist from what I can tell. That's what makes me mad about this current ad campaign. It's like - - screw those kids, they aren't important. That's the message my 12-14y/o self would be getting. I'm not important because I'm not gay.

    I didn't get as much support and guidance from my parents RE: burgeoning sexuality. . . I got room to be left alone, which is something I appreciate from the core of my being.

    "The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. To be your own man is hard business. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself." Rudyard Kipling - (1865-1936)

    Context doesn't matter to this liberal it seems/ as long as it satisfies his godless dreams/ like monkeys throwing sh!t as castles in air/ as long as he throws/that is the extent of his care.

    NH and other gays dont care about discipline or the mission all they care about is their gay agenda and ramming it down others throats and they dont care a wit about what they destroy to accomplish it. Thats why I cant really say what I'd do to them if I had a chance.
