    In high school I knew a transgender person, who at the time had not 'come out'. I believe I jokingly called her "queer" at one point. Several suicide attempts and years of counseling later, I found this out after she had announced her transition. Being gay I thought I would have been more sensitive to that. Yet I managed to cause someone incredible harm, and contribute to someone potentially ending their life.

    So please, go ahead. I don't mind you bashing people suffering from psychiatric disorders. Who are you going to attack next? I bet you can crack some really cruel jokes about people suffering from anorexia or depression, huh?

    I love how snug RINO's can be -- "he broke the LAW."

    I bet saying "the law" makes you feel good and euphoric inside...
    No, just stating a fact. You should try it sometime.

    That concern is hardly in the same boat as "he didn't break any rules or laws."

    I had thought a member of the armed forces was booted right away once that decision was handed down.
    There's a website for Marines active and vet where for the past month or so Marines have been decribing witnessing a drumming out from the Corps.

    It was usually those who were sentence to do time and then discharged with either a dishonorable or a Bad Chicken Dinner (Bad Conduct Discharge)

    After the prisoner had served out his sentence a chaser would escort the prisoner from the brig wearing his dress service uniform to the last company he was serving with. The entire company would fall out in formation. An officer would read the charges against the prisoner and then remove all military emblems, buttons, etc. Then the company would be ordered "About Face" and two drummers would start the drumming as the chaser escorted the now civilian off the base.

    This practice is no longer conducted. Back in 1962 some liberal saw a drumming out taking place at the Norfolk Naval Station Marine Barracks and felt sorry for the individual who had disgraced the Corps and dropped a dime and complained.

    You are the one who doesn't 'get it'.


    'Fair' or 'unfair' has nothing to do with it.

    Life is 'unfair' sometimes. But this guy brought his problems upon himself. He has no one but himself to blame for his current situation.

    Therefore i have very little sympathy for him/her.

    Manning is and was in the United States military and he broke military law.

    Because of this he was tried and convicted by a military court and now he is on his way to a military prison.

    If he doesn't want to do the time, he shouldn't have done the crime.

    What do you think "progress" means?

    It means slowly brainwash a population to hate our founding fathers and destroy our civil liberties...

    "gun control" 2

    "limitations on free speech" 1

    "separation of church and state" 1

    "warrantless spying" 4

    "prop 8" 10

    I can go on forever...

    Of course when the totalitarians want the Bill of Rights to mean something they will use it - even to the point of contradicting the document - which is pretty much like eating ones own head...

    Actually the Army said he is a man, and will not receive tax-payer treatments. Did this change? And yes, it is Gender Identity Disorder, in other words, he is confused.
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    I understand apparently you're incapable of asking why, and apparently if you did (which I doubt) you're more than accepting of the tyranny.

    Manning exposed our government and their actions - just like Snowden and for some reason some people believe we have no right to question government and anyone that does is a tyrant...

    Keep on supporting that notion....

    It's pretty easy to see where the dominoes fall....

    I thought he was a Marine..

    I'm "confused" by this world and it's ****ed up politics. The hypocrites and tyrants confuse me considering how accepting and deranged they are.. I suppose fact is fiction and non-fiction is lies...

    We live in a backwards ass world where "forward" is only acceptable based on ideology..

    I suppose that's too deep..

    Are you an anarchist?

    You sure sound like one.

    Manning broke the law.

    When people break the law there have to be consequences.

    If you don't like the law, you need to try to change it.

    But as long as the law is the law, it must be obeyed.
