Did you expect us to buy "ok, So I just got my car back and I'm at 3900 posts, which was my goal for today, so I'm done playing with you all while I enjoy my break..." was the antecedent of "that"
I actually did. I thought people realized that spending Christmas with my family was more important than arguing with you guys. Obviously you all think otherwise. I don't see what's so hard to believe? It was the day before my trip and I picked a number to stop posting at, because if I didn't, I would just keep posting and I wasn't going to spend Christmas posting on this site.
These accusations of me "running away" is beyond absurd as a) I'm still here and b) I've never ran away before.
Just go to fudging sleep. Stop announcing whenever you are going to stop posting. Either you're a self-absorbed prick who think everyone cares when you come and go, or you're a cowardly liar who needs an excuse to leave an inconvenient conversation.
Well, obviously people care when I come and go or they would just accept what I've said as the truth and stop talking about it..
Oh, so you weren't trying to say that feelings of not wanting to shower with a gay man were just as legitimate as a woman's feeling of not wanting to shower with men, and that therefor men shouldn't be required to shower with gay men, and that therefor allowing openly gay service to the military poses many (too many) logistic problems, and that this was too burdensome for the military?
You're right-- I totally misunderstood you.
You're exactly right. It's about time you realized that and thank you for admitting that you were wrong.
My focus was that those men are no more "bigots" than the women. You made that other connection on your own. I can understand the first or second time, but there's no excuse after I corrected posters multiple times over what my argument has always been in this thread.
If you remember the quotes I shared with Jophiel, I had pointed out that the military side all said that they needed more than a year, while the politicians said that they can do it in no time. There was no argument on rather DADT should or shouldn't be implemented because the ruling has already been passed. I would rather have DADT repealed and have complete open showers then keep it as it is now.

I don't know want happened in your career to give you such a negative view of officers, but I hope you come across someone to change your mind.
I don't make myself "important" to anybody. I was a LT for 3 years. There isn't much respect in that position. Even the officers who were prior service said that rank was the worst rank to have in terms of respect.
Officers don't really start turning into douche bags until they reach 04. Some do prematurely, but that's a major turning point.
I'm going to assume that you're not a senior NCO, because they tend to act just as fake and political as field grade officers do at times.
Looks like I forgot the option that includes you failing at reading comprehension. I'm not sure how you not running away has anything to do with this. If anything, that helps prove what I said.
Wow, did you really just say that? lol
Maybe because the quote you replied to was in reference to me not "running away". I was merely keeping to the subject, but I know it's tradition to argue about other points and then accuse me of getting off topic.
Maybe YOU should reread the paragraph you quoted me from to see what the topic was about... oh, wait, better yet, let me quote it for you and save some time. "Buy what? That I didn't want to spend my Christmas break arguing with you, but rather be with my family? I'm sorry, I don't know what to tell you. You find a time when I ever "ran away" from an argument, then you *might* have a point. Since you can't, it's obvious that I picked a point to stop to enjoy time with my family and just pick up later. There's a reason why I'm part of 20,30,40,50+ page threads and it's not because of I "ran".
That whole paragraph was in reference to the following: "Ya don't you jut pick an arbitrary number so when you are told you are wrong enough times you can just claim it was +1ing and it doesn't count.
oh sh*t 1429 im done posting I hit my goal for the day. "
and "I still can't believe he thought we'd buy that."
So you not realizing that is the real answer why these threads are so long, you just like to point fingers at me. This has clearly been about me "running away". So you either tried to change the subject, didn't realize what the subject was or a combination of the two. In any case, you were wrong.
Thanks for keeping count. Alma:1 Johpiel: 0 Edited, Jan 2nd 2011 4:06pm by Almalieque
