Lol Girly.

Just I've heard this idea that it's a "distraction" before but nobody has ever been able to explain why.
What kind of undisciplined organization are you Yanks running over there that would completely fall apart and lead to ruin because a gay guy joined up??
Is that where Osama Bin Laden went wrong? Instead of infiltrating a plane and crashing it into a building all he had to do was get a gay guy into the military?

Terrorist: "Haha! US Yanky dog! Now that I am a Private in the US Army I want a sex change!"
US Army: "Nooo! the terrorists! they're too powerful! tactical advance to the rear! tactical advance to the rear like we did in Vietnam! arrrggggg!" *blood spewing everywhere*
Terrorist: "Tactical advance to the rear indeed, if you get my meaning!" *evil sniggering*

He probably thought it stood for Trump, the most oppressed group of people there ever was.

Just reaffirming my view that he is a heroin needle filled with dumpster fire.

Corrected for grammar.

LDH fails to appreciate the seriousness and gravitas of the oath he took. I am not sure he is capable of sincerity. I'm pretty sure he had to look up gravitas.

Trump most likely doesn't think of it this way, but I think it's useful for others to read his behavior this way. Even if he doesn't have a specific ulterior motive, like any narcissist, his goal is to keep the stinkeye looking at those who don't go along with him.

You're all giving him way too much credit for attempting to be tactical. I think he was just playing with his iPhone and felt like posting some shit.

Probably why I wrote, "Trump most likely doesn't think of it this way, but [...]"

Yeah, come to think of it, that is why.

I'm unsure he knew much about that Constitution. And I'm not so sure he's learnt much about it in the interim.

I had a chill run up my spine as I uttered it in MEPS. "That's my ass," I thought. Good thing I had paid attention in civics and understood the principles for which I swore my life ... and equally good I didn't lose those principles after honorable service.

I guess it isn't hard to do, once you get on the I Me Mine treadmill and decide the rest are worth a good fucking. But the oath sticks with me even as a civilian.

I mean...if I could fill a heroin needle with dumpster fire is it still a heroin needle? He's a dumpster fire and in the dumpster is heroin needles.

Hey, it sounded funny at the time, brotha. I actually think that'll be a good line in a song -- "he's a heroin needle filled with dumpster fire". It's filed. Smile

Looks like the military was basically looking at not funding transitions. Not at all at excluding anyone from the service. Trump just made that shit up. That's what I heard just now while flicking through various cable news. I haven't verified it.

If it's truly about money, how about starting with stop funding for boner pills?

$84million dollars for boner pills. $8.4million (at the extreme high end) on trans-related healthcare. Yea sure, this is toooootally about the money...

So not so stupid. It's just a negotiating position.

Reminds me of a book... A Fart Of A Deal. He'll go back on his tweet in exchange for starting a war with Iran.

Smart move.
