Military people as “hired killers”

Wow. Sometimes I really love Facebook. I especially love to incite morons.

Check out this (young) pompous ass as he offends me and proceeds to call the military “hired killers”. If you think this guy is as big of a douchbag as I do, feel free to do what thou wilt!!

I can’t figure out how to attach a pdf – which is how I can save it – so I just did a cut and paste. If you’ve ever used Facebook, you’ll know what it’s supposed to look like.

Liz Corgan Chandler Interesting POV on the firing of McChrystal and what that means for repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. It’s someone’s personal blog so it’s an opinion- but still worth reading!

That’s pretty much what my husband has been saying for some time now.

I don’t believe Obama actually plans to repeal it.

I’m a little shaky on the whole repeal process anyhow. I have some burning questions about the culture of the military and how this would affect it. I’ve been afraid to ask because I don’t want to appear homophobic. At the same time, I’m not sure that a repeal and the new policy would work on several different layers. It may be the right thing to do, but it still could be a problem for the military to work out.

Even if he planned it, he wouldn’t succeed. He had popularity when he was elected, but popularity is not the same thing as political clout. His popularity is sinking as the people who voted for him are getting disillusioned, but his clout is not going to grow. Popularity is only good for winning elections. It’s not good for passing agendas.

@Sarah, I’m pretty sure I remember Jon saying that, if Obama really wanted to, he could make it happen. It’s truly a question of wanting to.

Who cares whether or not gays are allowed to go kill for the oil companies? Too many people doing that already.

So, along with being an ass, you’re also demonstrating that you truly know not about what is going on over there. Oh, that’s right, you rely on your evening news for all that info.

Did he engage in killing? Because if you get paid to shoot guns and fire artillery at people with the intention of ending their lives you are, in fact, a hired killer. Just because the Government is the client does not change the fact you kill for money. Just because you have some cornball idea that you’re serving your country doesn’t negate the fact you kill for money.

Oh, yes, you’re right. When men with guns fired at him, he should have just laid his gun down and done cartwheels.

No, all you do is show your youth and ignorance.

People have this crazy idea that it’s cool to be against the war and the politicians and businessmen who start it, but that the dupes who sign up to take part are heroes. Yes. Doing what the state tells you even if it means killing people you know nothing about are heroes and totally not people who made bad decisions.

Maybe he shouldn’t have signed up to go where there would be men with guns shooting at him. he didn’t accidentally wander onto a battlefield where people shot at him. He volunteered to go to a battlefield so he could commit murder under the guise of public service.

I know it’s weird for a person to consider the logical implications about their convictions and be willing to state unpopular opinions because of them.

So why did your husband volunteer to engage in a wrongheaded War?

No, because you truly don’t have the balls to go up to someone like my husband and bombard him with your idiocy.

You opened yourself up when you started talking shit about military people, of which I’m married to one. If I were truly going to make fun of you, I’d probably start with the thing on your head that makes it pretty difficult for any intelligent person to take you seriously.

I’m pretty sure that if God’s work is to be done – or is even real – you’d be the last one to do it.

And the reason I don’t talk to your husband is because this is Facebook and I don’t care. But you seem to believe that I should go out and have mongoloid jarheads beat my ass into my face, otherwise my opinion isn’t valid. If that’s the case, then how about you go get your ass kicked for your convictions too? Or maybe you don’t HAVE to get your ass beat to have a valid opinion, and you just use the oldest, laziest, disingenuous debate tactics ever.
