Just my thoughts as I worked for DOD for fifteen years after I retired from the USMC...if you dont have active Military Service..you should never be appointed to head any of the services as a civilian

For the record: 12 years service British Army, 3 tours of Northern Ireland, Bosnia, Kosovo, Sierra Leone, Cyprus, 2 tours of Iraq. Colonel (ret), HQ Squadron of my last Cavalry Regiment posting. I sti

I am touched by your level of sensitivity . Its seldom that we see a guy  post here who is so in touch with his feminine side .     So your position is that all " public forums" should be ruled in l

Well, some people just take things way too seriously...and you know how gays get so emotional when things go down bad...

I was in the UK Army, and all this chatter about gays is disgraceful.

 

Report to me for a spanking, and bring cash.  I also do naked confessions, complete with dog collar and collection plate.

 

A professional man should be judged by how well he can do his job, not how nice his nails look.  Right?

Faggot (unit), archaic unit of measurement for bundles of sticks

Not so.

 A fag is a cigarette. EG: Can I bum a fag "can I borrow a cigarette"

 A fagot is a log of wood or a meat ball sort of thing.

 But also old slang for a gay guy.

A faggot is a meatball....a fag is a cigarette and a poofter is a faggot.

I remember being shocked by the vile homophobic comments in the posting about Ireland allowing gay marriage and now its gonna happen in this thread too? Faggots and poofters? Are these terms tolerated on this forum?

 

Yes,these terms are tolerated on this forum....why not Faggots and Poofters? at the moment I cant think of a better name for them.

Surely it should not be about him being gay, it should be about his qualifications of which he apparently has none according to THIS.

President Obama has just announced his brand-spanking new Secretary of the Army.

 

Wow. So the new Secretary of the Army is a battle-hardened, highly decorated officer, right?

No.

Well, has the Secretary at least served this nation in uniform…ever?

 

No.

Oh. Well then the Secretary must be a woman, right?

 

A Muslim?

No.

Maybe a black guy?

No.

Then what distinguishes him?

He’s GAY silly!! It’s HISTORIC!

The Washington Post says, “Eric Fanning, 47, has been a specialist on national security issues for more than two decades and has played a key role overseeing some of the Pentagon’s biggest shipbuilding and fighter jet programs.”

Yeah, but this is the ARMY, which apparently matters…to no one in the Obama administration.

And maybe not even to some Republicans. The Post quotes Joe Kasper, chief of staff to Rep. Duncan D. Hunter (R-Calif.) saying, “There is a real crisis in morale and retention that has developed for the Army over the last several years. The Army needs a leader who will stand up for soldiers, who recognizes war can get ugly and who won’t shy away from the tough issues. If Fanning is that type of person, he’ll be embraced.”

Sorry, hard to read that without noting the amusing irony, but I guess that’s just me.

Well…Army Strong! And…be all that you can be. Openly!

Yep, the times, they are a’ changing.

Amazing. You learn something new every day on these forums.  :sarcasm:

 

I still think saying, "Can I bum a fag?" is somewhat borderline.

I don't think a gay veteran, with real, and appropriate service in the military, would have raised any eyebrows.

 

What is the old joke about why guys re-enlist in the Navy?

 

He may help retention rates.

The person being nominated has never served in the military, but has been a civilian employee of some sort for years.

 

Just my thoughts as I worked for DOD for fifteen years after I retired from the USMC...if you dont have active Military Service..you should never be appointed to head any of the services as a civilian...I saw too many that had been working in DOD for 20+ years that did not have a clue...
