And the fight you choose is fighting for Chik-a to make the kids crap food.

A little sad, no?

Has nothing to do with chik-fil-a, has to do with a government run amok, thinking they have the right to tell people what to eat. I'm sure you will start with the healthcare rap, and I will answer why is the government involved in health care in the first place?

So you are saying if 2 people of "equal" genetics lived their lives one eating Mcdonalds every day and the other eatng a balanced diet they would live to be the same age?

Entirely possible

You surely were, shitting your diapers.

I surely wasn't born yet, not the point. Whats so special about the "pal's" that generates all this sympathy?

60 some years ago we were firebombing Dresden, not a fuck was given.
60 some years ago we were dropping the "bomb" on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, not a fuck was given.
Whats so special about the "pal's"?

No, not really.  Leaving the armed forces when one wants when joining is voluntary doesn't seem so unreasonable to me.

If a soldier voluntarily joins the service because of moral obligations and patriotic pride (like many did after 9/11) but then finds out that his (for him) soul-destroying duties offend his moral sensibilities, it's probably better for all concerned to just let him go (with a couple of conditions, though).

Obviously, any actions taken by a soldier that would endanger his fellow soldiers can't be permitted.  I'm pretty sure everyone would accept that.

Also, the soldier needs to pay back the amount of money (maybe a pro-rated amount?) it cost to train him or her.

I see this (being able to resign from an all-volunteer force) as being more honorable than some of what I saw happening when I was in the service:  Back when I was taking the year-long Russian Language Basic course at the Defense Language Institute in Monterey, CA years ago (1984) some female soldiers would totally work the system by taking a nearly a whole language course, 8 hours/day, 5 days/week (for up to a year for some languages) and then, before getting an assignment or even going off to their secondary MOS school (radio school, usually) they'd get pregnant and get out of the service entirely.  AFAIK, they'd have to repay nothing even though they'd taken a spot from someone else for some of the best intensive language instruction you can get.  Hopefully this particular loophole has since been closed.





What you are describing is a "shitbird", if the COC was worth damn this guy would have been a POGUE. My guess is his dumbass would have done the same thing.

Let them come then deport all the illegals that show up.

Playing the devil's advocate, it doesn't seem totally unreasonable to think that these days, with an all-volunteer army, maybe you should be able to leave when you want. 

I assume this is sarcasm.

So he is going to issue an illegal order to grant work status to illegals? WTF is congress doing?

Why would you direct said question to me? Do you think I disagree?

No I do not.

Point being the right to bear arms is a constitutional right, the fact the cops think they get to decide who owns guns is fucking ridiculous. Now what you do in your bed room isn't necessarily a constitutional right, but its also no ones business. The fucking government has run amok from the local level to the federal level.

I'm curious, how do liberals want government in the bedroom 100% of the time? It seems to me - and I'm using a somewhat broad brush here - that liberals don't want the government in the bedroom, whereas conservatives do; this is an oddly ironic inversion.


How about the government just stays out of people's business as long as they aren't breaking the law?

Based on the two previous incidents where he left base to meditate and clear his head, I think he did the same thing as he didn't leave with any provisions whatsoever although I would say that it was a bad idea to which I'm sure he's more than learned his lesson.  There's a claim out there that he left a note saying that he was going to start a new life but no note has ever surfaced.

We will all have to wait and see but he's not going to be charged with anything...the 350k tax free money on the other hand will be a different matter.  If they found him to have deserted then they'll issue a Medical Discharge and let him be on his way

Oh, then its perfectly fine  Roll Eyes

WTF, last time I checked you don't just get to choose to walk off duty in the military.

Hey, if they travel in the desert, and die of heat - their deaths are on his hands. 

Which uber-liberal said that? 

The simple fact that he is inviting them in, well if they die in the desert, he sent to invitation. Personally I don't care if they die in the desert or the shit hole country they are leaving. There are legal means to enter this country.....

I all for the Doomsday wall

This is just a brilliant plan, really wish I would have voted for him now  Roll Eyes
15  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Obama Rocks on: July 27, 2014, 11:55:31 AM
I always kinda thought repubs loved america and freedom and wanted to reduce the debt to zero.

Dems, on the other hand, won't be happy until we're speaking Mandarin and wearing tracker chips and getting Obama tattoos.

Yeah politicians love America  Roll Eyes
16  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Obama Rocks on: July 27, 2014, 11:12:28 AM

Why do you feel republicans in congress lack the balls to agree with you?   Do they secretly support his liberal agenda? 

I think I summed this up for you before, the reps are not going to do anything that will impeade their ability to do the same kind of shit once they are in power. Do you seriously think there is really a difference between the 2 parties?
17  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Obama Declares War On Chic-Fil-A on: July 27, 2014, 09:02:34 AM
Nasser's family probably doesn't think this. Sad

Why? Who's to say he wouldn't have kicked off at the same age if he didn't inject his body with all sorts of chemicals? Maybe he actually lived longer because he worked out.
18  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Israel and Gaza - discussion on: July 27, 2014, 07:04:00 AM
I see.  Hey, if you get the time, maybe you'd like to give your rationale for why the IDF's actions ARE justified. 

So as to stay on subject, though, please include why you think such a large percentage of the US public seems to disagree (with the notion that the IDF's actions are justified), could ya?

The article below, from www.theamericanconservat ive.com, might be of interest:

Gaza and U.S. Public Opinion
By Daniel Larison • July 24, 2014, 5:59 PM

Gallup finds that Americans are split on the question of whether Israel’s actions in Gaza have been justified or not. Overall, 42% say that they are justified, 39% say they are not, and 20% have no opinion. These results are comparable to a Gallup poll taken during the second intifada twelve years ago, but there are slightly more on the ‘unjustified’ side than there were then.
...
It is striking how evenly divided the public is on this question when there is total uniformity among political leaders in the U.S. that Israel is justified in what it has been doing. There is always a significant gap between popular and elite views on foreign policy issues, but it is still fairly unusual for a view held by almost 40% of Americans to have virtually no representation in Congress.

The public stopped being represented about 150 years ago.......

This is exactly why guns need to be banned.  It's ridiculous to have this many senseless killings

LOL, Chicago and DC had a hand gun ban, guess what? The gun violence rate went up 48%.

You see criminals don't obey laws.
20  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: US military obtains new video of American soldier held in captivity on: July 26, 2014, 05:00:52 PM
Fox News and CNN....there's an unwritten rule that POW's are generally not charged with any misconduct due to morale issues

Good thing he is a deserter then.
21  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Obama Declares War On Chic-Fil-A on: July 26, 2014, 04:21:02 PM
lol @ what this argument has become.


If you don't support letting school kids eat as much fast food as they want in the school cafeteria, you hate freedom.



Making choices for yourself is the only real freedom anyone really has in this country anymore.
22  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Obama Rocks on: July 26, 2014, 01:27:08 PM
repubs impeached for fibbing about a hummer back in the 90s. 

today they won't impeach when americans are dying at home and abroad.

they had balls back then.... today? 

How is a BJ in the oval office going to put any restrictions on a rep POTUS, other than don't get caught getting a BJ in the oval office. There were no "policy" or "executive orders" as any part of that impeachment process.
23  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Obama Rocks on: July 26, 2014, 01:02:13 PM
how about illegally feeding guns to mexico which were used to kill americans?

or letting benghazi attack happen?   or being born outside the USA?

What about it? face it both sides are gutless turds, and they aren't going to impeach unless it's for something that isn't going to restrain there side when they are in power. It's up to us to put a stop to this bullshit, but as long as the gubmint checks are going out and american idols is on...........

Nothing is going to change until the everyday American starts to feel some actual pain in there lives, then it to late.
24  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Obama Rocks on: July 26, 2014, 12:51:04 PM
You're willing to give obama another 30 months of destroying the future of our country on some marginal chance that it might give some repub a better chance against a dem not named obama? 

And you're okay with such a reckless chance because you'll be able to tell getbiggers "I told you so?"

What about the future of the USA?  Personally, I wouldn't let a criminal go because "Hilary will TOTALLY be beatable now!" because, well, obama was sure beatable against a perfect romney after debate #1, and voila, he won by a large margin.  trading 30 months of communism for "well, we might do better last time?"  LOL  come on dude.

And don't forget, from BJ to impeachment took Ken Starr only 11 months, in a time BEFORE the internet. 

Why would reps bring impeachment proceedings? Illegal executive orders? Yeah that's gonna happen, then their guy can't do it. Everything is calculated...........
25  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: US military obtains new video of American soldier held in captivity on: July 26, 2014, 07:07:58 AM

I think they should stay away from it until the investigation is over.  Picking on a guy who has been a POW who was tortured, locked in a cage and for propaganda for the Taliban for over 5 years will not sit well with military personnel. 

Not only that...they are not going to charge him with anything. 

I would really like to know where exactly you get this information?
