Unless I am mistaken ‘Don’t ask, don’t tell was an Executive Order and can be easily changed by the President.

Well easy in an administrative way.

However it would set off a political fire storm.

But as a practical matter and the fiscally responsible thing to do is to reinstate the requirement to state under penalty of perjury that an enlistee is not a homosexual and not a transgender in waiting.

The military is not designed to be nor can it function as a purely medical plan for these mentally ill people.

Yes. The LGBTQALDLTRE-whatever community have a long-standing reputation for having a “flair for the dramatic” and being outright drama queens. Is it any wonder show biz has long been infested with them? Since the Matthew Shepard case, tragic, but was actually an argument over drugs that got deadly, NOT “homophobia”, so many apparent gay bashings that turned out to be hoaxes have occurred.

Like the boy who dried wolf, what’s gonna happen when a real bonafide case of a gay hatred motivated crime occurs. Oh, yeah it did, the Pulse Niteclub shooting. And guess what, THEY BLAMED IT ON THE GUN! One reason the APA really needs to consider reclassifying homosexuality as a mental disease.

I know it sucks, but that is just how wikipedia generally is. The whole point of an encyclopedia is to be politically correct and label and get as much information on every person, place, thing or ideas possible. There aren't that many predominately black shows, so it's nice to categorize them, so putting a category of "African-American" shows, in the Cosby show article makes sense. There aren't that many LGBT related anime stories that deal with transgender issues or lesbian and homosexual romance like Sailor Moon does.

So it's nice to honor that and show that Sailor Moon does fall under that circumstance. Yeah I see what you mean, I would love for people to just be people, and tv shows to just be tv shows, being that the anime community for the most part is in a bubble of sorts and uses anime to escape themselves from politically correct socialism, which is why anime is as obscure as it is. But anime like any type of culture, still falls under the sense of reality structure and if a show has lgbt characters and storylines, those categories should be added.

We request that President Trump pardon every American citizen that was involved in the activities that took place in Bunkerville, Nevada and the activities that took place at the Malheur Refuge in Oregon. Innocent Americans are being held in prison and sentenced to ridiculous jail terms for standing up for what was right and defending the constitutional rights of others and that any and all people currently being held be released so they can return to their families and back to their normal and everyday lives.

[From "A petition to save Dylann Roof's life"]

Dylann Roof is an innocent young man, trying to look out for the good of his community. As of this week, we found out that the state plans to murder him for actions that he simply did not commit. Whether his killings were in self-defense or just completely fabricated is unknown, but what we do know is that a pro-white man as brilliant and well-educated as Roof was a major threat to the status quo, and the state decided they would rather frame him in order to silence him than play fair. Roof is a true defender of the white race, and would never use violence when there was no threat against himself or his people. We, at Dylann Roof Innocent petition the government to right its wrongs, break free of Marxist zionist control, and spare the life of this bright, innocent young man Dylann Roof. Killing him would be an abomination to our country.

Quote# 130577

My name is Yuan Ji. I was born into a farmer's family in Shandong Province, China. I started practicing Falun Gong in January 1999, to heal my illnesses. After I started the practice, all my illnesses vanished.

Years later, I stopped practicing due to various forms of interference. One day, I fell very ill and was diagnosed with severe diabetes. I was hospitalized for over four months, which cost me upwards of US$10,000. The doctors told me that there was no cure for diabetes, and the best they could do was to help control the symptoms with medicine.

My fellow Falun Gong practitioners shared with me and encouraged me to resume studying the Fa. But I lost my confidence and thought that Master didn't want me. One afternoon at 6:00 p.m., I saw two small Falun rotating in front of my bed. I watched them for four minutes. They disappeared when I tried to focus in on them.

I was delighted, as I knew Master was still protecting me, even though I was not cultivating well. I was speechless before Master's compassion and grace.

I then resumed reading Zhuan Falun, the main text of Falun Gong. A miracle occurred a few days later. I went from taking four insulin injections a day to taking one pill a day. A few days later, I didn't need to take any pills. I went to the hospital for a checkup, and the doctor said that everything was fine with me.

This is one of the many miracles that happened on me since I started practicing Falun Gong.

1) And the number one sure sign – cites articles from the Talk.Origins repository, where you will be fortunate to find 1 scholarly article out of every 50.

"Mum... Dad... Sit down I have something I need to share with you, Before I begin the news I have may be against all the basic principles you have practiced all your life so you need to know something first...
In My hand I'm holding a live grenade... I've pulled the pin out but I still have the lever depressed. If you upset me by not accepting everything I tell you with a big big smile, I'll drop this thing and destroy this family. Accept my news with a big smile and I'll put the pin back....
By the way... I'm Gay"
This is how the conversation NEVER goes...
"Mom... Dad... I know you find it almost impossible to accept the fact I've chosen a new lifestyle and I know this isn't what you wanted for me as I was growing up. I know you've never accepted homosexuality as a 'Blessed' lifestyle choice and I completely understand how heart-breaking it is for you to know I've turned my back on everything you believe. Nevertheless I love you and will stay with you no matter what your reaction is"
The most Common two stories I hear are "My parents were terrific and I had no problems"
"My parents threw me out of the house and I hate them"
It's all or nothing with homosexuals... "Accept me or I'll hate you forever and I'll never try to understand how I've broken your hearts!"

Quote# 130437

A chilling new poll conducted by scholars Ariel Malka and Yphtach Lelkes, which they write about in the Washington Post’s Monkey Cage blog today, finds that not only do nearly half of Republicans falsely believe that President Trump won the popular vote in 2016 and that nearly 70 percent believe that “millions of illegal immigrants voted” in the election, but that more than half would support postponing the 2020 presidential election “until the country can make sure that only eligible American citizens can vote” if Trump were to propose it.

Malka and Lelkes caution that this whole situation is hypothetical and that people’s views might be different if faced with the situation in reality. But they write that their findings, at a minimum “show that a substantial number of Republicans are amenable to violations of democratic norms that are more flagrant than what is typically proposed (or studied).”

It’s worth remembering that one of the many conspiracy theories that the right-wing media propagated about President Obama was that he would invent some kind of crisis in order to justify staying in office for a second term, or even indefinitely.

WorldNetDaily, the website that was the chief driver of the racist “birther” myth, also had a sideline in stories about ways that Obama might manage to stay in office beyond his second term. One WND story speculated that Obama “planned” riots in Baltimore as a step toward instituting martial law, forming a “national police force” and postponing the 2016 elections. Another warned that Obama might use the Ebola virus to create chaos in the country, declare martial law, and cancel the election. WND’s editor, Joseph Farah, repeatedly warned that Obama might find a way to stay in office whether Trump or Hillary Clinton won the election.

When WND asked Ben Carson, then considering his own run for president,“Who would stop Obama from remaining in office past his second term?,” Carson played along.

Alan Keyes, who was Obama’s Republican opponent in the 2004 Illinois Senate race, warned that Obama might use a nuclear war as a pretext to stay in office. Televangelist Jim Bakker and radio hosts Michael Savage, Alex Jones and Rush Limbaugh also expressed their concerns about a third Obama term. Paid email blasts went out to the subscribers of several conservative websites warning of some unspecified event that “could propel Obama to a near-unprecedented third term.” In early 2015, a spokesman for the Family Research Council assured worried callers to the group’s radio program that there was “a whole host of people lined up ready to help make sure” that Obama would leave office in 2017, adding that a third Obama term was “a concern” of his as well.

The militia group Oath Keepers repeatedly warned of efforts to cancel the 2016 election if attempts to elect Clinton by nefarious means started to fail.

How times have changed.

(Talking about Heather Heyer, who was killed in Charlottesville. Emphasis mine)

went to a vigil for Heather tonight and with more certainty than ever I can say: fuck liberals. line em up against a goddamn wall.

Heather's name was only said once, a rabbi claimed the Founding Fathers weren't white supremacists, and another speaker claimed that the problem was from both the left and the right. Not once was Heather's politics mentioned. When they listed out all the bigotries they stood against - racism, sexism, anti-Semitism, not once was capitalism or even that milquetoast bullshit term "classism" mentioned.

They asked to say say the pledge with them - me and my comrades all took a seat in the middle of the crowd. Fuck you and your fucking flag.

Saw an All Lives Matter shirt, more than a few Love Trumps Hate signs, a goddamn Game of Thrones reference on a sign. So many cliches.

So many MLK quotes. I had pulled up the MLK quote about white moderates to yell if they opened the Mic to us in the crowd.

This was organized by Indivisible. I've only known this organization existed for about 12 hours - my take is already "grind them to dust"

It was a gathering of white people in pastel clothes doing ritual autofellatio to the tune of how woke they are.

A lot of people are saying don't politicize Heather's death - bullshit considering she died a martyr for socialism. But if anyone is guilty of using this for political gain, its liberals. At the end, the speaker effectively endorsed a candidate in Alabama's election on Tuesday.

They kept chanting about how if you wanna stop racism, you have to vote. Vote all you like - I won't - but it takes way more than that.

I'm reminded of Malcolm X's words on the ballot or the bullet.

"Its good to see people of so many socioeconomic backgrounds come together" buddy its only good when we get to feed them lead for dessert

And the worst part: afterwards an Indivisible organizer came up to me and said "can't wait for the next vigil" then "there will be a lot of these over the next four years"

Tamir, Philando, and Trayvon were killed under a Democrat, sweetheart

And Indivisible organizer said "well we stand for the same things," and my comrade Sean said "no, we fucking don't"

Quote# 129192

Twelve reasons not to see Harry Potter Movies

1. God shows us that witchcraft, sorcery, spells, divination and magic are evil. He hates those practices because they blind us to His loving ways, then turn our hearts to a deceptive quest for self-empowerment and deadly thrills. Harry Potter's world may be fictional, but the timeless pagan practices it promotes are real and deadly. Well aware that the final result is spiritual bondage and oppression, He warns us:

"There shall not be found among you anyone who... practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord..." Deuteronomy 18:9-12

2. The movie's foundation in fantasy, not reality, doesn't diminish its power to change beliefs and values. Imaginary (or virtual) experiences and well-written fantasies can affect the mind and memories as much, if not more, than actual experiences.[3] Designed to stir feelings and produce strong emotional responses, a well-planned myth with likeable characters can be far more memorable than the less exciting daily reality -- especially when reinforced through books, toys and games as well as movies. Small wonder Harry's fans have been counting the days until their next fantastic journey into Hogwarts' classes on sorcery, divination, potions and spells.

"But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward." Jeremiah 7:24
3. Each occult image and suggestion prompts the audience to feel more at home in this setting. Children identify with their favorite characters and learn to see wizards and witches from a popular peer perspective rather than from God's perspective. Those who sense that the occult world is evil face a choice: Resist peer pressure or rationalize their imagined participation in Harry's supernatural adventures.
The second choice may quiet the nagging doubts, but rationalizing evil and justifying sin will sear the conscience and shift the child's perception of values from God's perspective to a more "comfortable" cultural adaptation. Even Christian children can easily learn to conform truth to multicultural ideals and turn God's values upside down - just as did God's people in Old Testament days:
"But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward, and not forward." Jeremiah 7:24
"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness....
Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes,
And prudent in their own sight!" Isaiah 5:2-21

Harry Potter Special [Magazine] interviews actors Daniel Radcliffe (Harry), Rupert Grint (Ron), Tom Felton (Draco), Harry Melling (Dudley):
If you could cast a spell on someone, what would it be?
Daniel: "If I liked them, it would be a spell where I'd give them special power, like invisibility.
Your favorite word in the Harry Potter books?
Daniel: "I like the word--it's very bad to say this--but I like the word Voldemort."
What magical power would you like to have?
Rupert: "I'd like to levitate."
Do you prefer to play a bad or good character?
Tom: "Bad. It's more fun because it is different.
What magical power would you want to have?
Tom: "Invisibility. So I could sneak around and go places I shouldn't."
Did you find it hard torturing Harry?
Harry M: "No. I found it quite fun, actually."[4]

4. God tells us to "abhor what is evil" and "cling to what is good." (Romans 12:9) But when Christian children and teens love the Harry Potter myths, delight in the movie and read the books again and again, they are desensitizing their hearts and minds to its evil. Turning God's truth upside down, they are learning to "love" what is evil. The natural next step is to reject God's wise boundaries and "abhor" what He calls good.

"You love evil more than good...." Psalm 52:3

5. Immersed in Hogwarts' beliefs and values, children learn to ignore or reinterpret God's truth. They lose their natural aversion for the devious spirits represented by the creatures and symbols in this eerie world. Caught up in the exciting story, they absorb the suggested values and store the fascinating images in their minds -- making the forbidden world of the occult seem more normal than the Kingdom of God.

Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ." Colossians 2:6-9

6. This inner change is usually unconscious, for the occult lessons and impressions tend to bypass rational scrutiny. After all, who will stop, think and weigh the evidence when caught up in such a fast-moving visual adventure? Fun fantasies and strategic entertainment has a special way of altering values, compromising beliefs and changing behavior in adults as well as in children. This learning process has been named "edutainment" -- a favored way to train multicultural citizens for the envisioned 21st century community. Its power to influence beliefs and behavior is illustrated by today's marketing firms which spend billions on entertaining ads that touch emotions, ignore the facts, yet motivate people to buy the product.

"Turn away my eyes from looking at worthless things, and revive me in Your way." Psalm 119:37

7. The main product marketed through this movie is a new belief system. This pagan ideology comes complete with trading cards, computer and other wizardly games, clothes and decorations stamped with HP symbols, action figures and cuddly dolls and audio cassettes that could keep the child's minds focused on the occult all day and into night. But in God's eyes, such paraphernalia become little more than lures and doorways to deeper involvement with the occult. In contrast, He calls a person "blessed" who -

"walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
nor stands in the path of sinners,
nor sits in the seat of the scornful [mockers];
"But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he meditates day and night. Whatever he does shall prosper." Psalm 1:1-3
It might be hard to escape the symbols that remind people of Harry. His words and phrases help fuel today's cultural transformation:
The mainstream media uses the word "muggles" to deride those who don't want children to read Harry Potter books.

"A columnist from the Chicago Daily Herald used Harry-Speak.... He said that a particular NBC Olympics commentator was the 'dementor of the sports commentators.'"

"Coeur d'Alene, Idaho is going to name this year's snowstorms after the Harry Potter characters. The first blizzard of the year will be called Albus...."[4]

8. The implied source of power behind Harry's magical feats tend to distort a child's understanding of God. In the movie as in the books, words traditionally used to refer to occult practices become so familiar that children begin to apply the same terms to God and His promised strength. Many learn to see God as a power source that can be manipulated with the right kind of prayers and rituals -- and view his miracles as just another form of magic. They base their understanding of God on their own feelings and wants, not on His revelation of Himself.

"You thought that I was altogether like you; but I will rebuke you...." Psalm 50:21

9. Blind to the true nature of God, children will blend (synthesize) Biblical truth with pagan beliefs and magical practices. In the end, you distort and destroy any remnant of true Christian faith. For our God cannot be molded to match pagan gods.

“For My people have committed two evils:
They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters,
And hewn themselves cisterns—broken cisterns that can hold no water." Jeremiah 2:1

10. God tells us to "train up a child in the way He should go." It starts with teaching them God's truths and training them all day long to see reality from His, not the world's perspective. To succeed, we need to shield them from contrary values until they know His Word and have memorized enough Scriptures to be able to recognize and resist deception. Once they have learned to love what God loves and see from His perspective, they will demonstrate their wisdom by choosing to say "no" to Harry Potter.

“And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up." Deuteronomy 6:6-7

11. While some argue that Harry and his friends model friendship and integrity, they actually model how to lie and steal and get away with it. Their examples only add to the cultural relativism embraced by most children today who are honest when it doesn't cost anything, but who lie and cheat when it serves their purpose.

"And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased [depraved] mind, to do those things which are not fitting.... They are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them." Romans 1:28-32

12. God has a better way. When His children choose to follow His ways, He gives them a heart to love Him, spiritual eyes that can understand and delight in His Word, a sense of His presence and a confidence in His constant care -- no matter what happens around us. Harry Potter's deceptive thrills are worse than worthless when compared to the wonderful riches our Shepherd promises those who will ignore evil and walk with Him.

"Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things." Philippians 4:6-8

I disagree with the premise of the geologic column, since there is no evidence for it (it only exists in the text books). Mt St Helens was your death knell, since even some unbelieving geologist scientists admit 90% of all geology was overturned by that event. Now you even have a growing number of evos who admit the evidence for the Grand Canyon supports the theory that it was carved out rapidly by a water breech. So much for the “geologic column” existing there!
