Don't Ask, Don't Tell - Don't B*llsh!t Me!

Anyone ever hear of the term Cherry Marines?

If not, have you knowledge of Kay Griggs?

Well, let me be the one to enlighten you, dear readers...

This posting was prompted by a story I heard on Bloomberg News Radio this morning (I'm weaning myself from 1010WINS), in regards to scumbaggery befalling a decorated officer - Don't Ask Don't Tell Policy Before Appeals Court - an Air Force nurse named Margaret Witt - let me present to you an excerpt from the article:

"Margaret Witt's ACLU lawyer told a federal appeals court panel in Seattle that child molesters in the armed forces are treated more leniently than homosexuals because molesters don't face mandatory discharge.

Witt contends the policy-driven discharge violated her right to be free from governmental intrusion in her private life, and that her lawsuit against the Air Force should be reinstated.

"Don't ask, don't tell" prohibits the military from asking about the sexual orientation of service members but requires discharge of those who acknowledge being gay or engage in homosexual activity.

Witt, 42, spent more than 18 years building a stellar reputation as a McChord Air Force Base nurse who saved the lives of soldiers on medical-evacuation missions.

Twice decorated by President Bush, her career was on the rise until an anonymous tipster told the Air Force in 2004 that Witt, a major, was in a long-term relationship with a civilian woman.

Witt sued to block to discharge but lost the first round in July 2006 when U.S. District Judge Ronald Leighton of Tacoma sided with the government.

Leighton rejected the argument that a 2003 U.S. Supreme Court decision invalidating anti-sodomy laws in Texas meant "don't ask, don't tell" is unconstitutional, too.

Final notice of Witt's honorable discharge came three weeks ago, said her pro bono lawyer, Jim Lobsenz. But the fate of "don't ask, don't tell" is hanging in the balance."

What a crapfest, eh? All of those commendations, and apparently, they mean bupkis when it comes for one to have their pension, after dedicating nearly twenty years of service to people I wouldn't trust to lead me out of the open end of a paper bag.

So...I mentioned two things at the beginning - let's get back to them:

Cherry Marines & Kay Griggs:

There are 13 parts to this video...I believe that you can also see it at her website.

Here's another: Kay Griggs Talks

Oh...and speaking of crap...

But the biggest crapfest of that Governer Jeb Bush supposedly packed up all records pertaining to Huffman Aviation and flew them out of Florida shortly after all flights were ordered cancelled by the TSA? Yes...I mean RIGHT AFTER SEPTEMBER 11th, 2001.

Or was there more on those planes than records? There have been reports that the planes were also used to ferry in COCAINE.

This is what you call "Appeasing the Enemy"! about America's interests? Where are you running for office, anyway?

Let's end this posting with this quote: "Evidence linking these Israelis to 9/11 is classified. I cannot tell you about evidence that has been gathered. It's classified information." -- US official quoted in Carl Cameron's Fox News report on the Israeli spy ring and its connections to the events of September 11th, 2001.
