I was wondering when someone would hit me with that semantic marshmallow.
Nah, I'll phrase things as recklessly as I please.
Your need to comment? Not my problem.
Accurately calling your busybody response a "semantic marshmallow" isn't bitching, kid, it's called "mocking".Then don't bitch if you get called on it again.
You're the snowflake who felt the need to whine about my post. Not my problem.That is entirely your problem.
You know what? They can order service members not to say "mean" things about Joe Biden in public but that doesn't mean they're not going to talk about what a putz he is in private! If Joe was a fly on the wall I don't think he'd like what he was hearing.
Says something when they take the trouble to remind the troops of that. Sounds like they're scared of what's being said in the barracks.The long standing rule of thumb is that we can still say damned near anything that we want. We just have to phrase it into a "diplomatic" manner is all.
And a lot do not get that, because outside of the military most have no problem saying anything that they want, because there are absolutely no consequences. But they are not in the military, and can not even begin to understand the difference.
In the civilian world, you can go up to your boss and tell him or her that they are a complete moron, should never have responsibility of anything more complex than feeding dogs, and wonder if their parents had any kids that lived. The absolute worst that can happen is that you can get fired.
As opposed to the military, where doing that can literally get you locked up in jail, demoted, and kicked out with a criminal record that can follow you for life.

It's the one thing that I consider our BEST hope for saving this nation. I expect tens of thousands of these troops and sailors to balk when they get orders to kill citizens a government has labeled as "domestic terrorists". Unfortunately, they'll probably have to fight among each other in the beginning because SOME of them have no real concept of honor and WILL follow orders no matter whether they are illegal or not.Of course they know it, and there are 200,000 military out there right now all saying that this man in the WH and his mission is a damned foolish and stupid one. And when so many military minds all agree on one thing, I listen.
