Thanks, at least we know what we're dealing with.

For the most part I stay out of the political threads for that reason.

That's a good outlook.

I was referring to your trashing of an entire country because of one person's post. Bit of a paranoid over-reaction, no?

But never fear! After reading your posts I was inspired to stand up and shout our national anthem 100 times in a row until I had no voice left.

:hysterical:

Same reply as before... :coffee:

Very well thank you...We have a low violent crime rate and an even lower death or injury due to guns rate...

so feel free to shove that up your well-used asshole... :)

Oh by the way, speaking of assholes, in every post you make, you're always mentioning sodomy or sodomising...

Are you a closet or repressed homosexual?

Your fascination with sodomy would suggest you are

You need a date? Smile like a donut! :whistling:

Nope happily married with five kids. I just really hate homosexual activity. Not the people but the act. See I'm a God Fearing Christian and I believe certain things that others don't. For example people who filter through posts and single out the sodomy comments. They don't get anything from the message they pick out the trash and chew on it. But hey it's kind of the same with religon; have fun smoking turds in hell. :o

You just mentioned it again....

It must be difficult being in your position, being gay, yet having to be married and having the yoke of righteous christianity around your neck. You're probably too terrified to come out of the closet... I can understand that. You're probably worried too that your kids will think "oh no, my Dad is gay..."

What's that Bondi Cigar? I'm not sure how ya'll got off on fecalfilia but shit does attract flies and there's been more than a few flies floating around here. Seems the same with Obama. I wouldn't mind being gay but it'd make my ass hurt. Seems like you could come up with some better insults than that. Like; looks like you got hit in the face with a hot bag of nickels. Or Shut up, you’ll never be the man your mother is! Or I heard that you changed your mind. So, what did you do with the diaper? Or I know what sign you were born under...'RED LIGHT DISTRICT'. I'm not sure if it's a lack of vocabulary or a stroke, so I'll let you get back to fingerpainting with your brown pastels and licking windowsills. Talk to you later Paintchip....

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Jack Lucas, who at 14 lied his way into the military to serve in World War II and became the youngest marine ever to receive the Medal of Honor, died Thursday in Hattiesburg, Miss., where he made his home. He was 80.

Skip to next paragraph 06lucas.190.jpg Carolyn Kaster/Associated Press Jack Lucas

Mr. Lucas had been hospitalized with leukemia and died after asking doctors to remove a dialysis machine, said his wife, Ruby.

Jacklyn Lucas, known as Jack, was just six days past his 17th birthday when, in February 1945, his heroism at Iwo Jima earned him the medal. He used his body to shield three members of his squad from two grenades and was nearly killed when one exploded.

“A couple of grenades rolled into the trench,” Mr. Lucas said in an interview with The Associated Press shortly before he received the medal from President <a href="http://topics.nytimes.com/top/reference/timestopics/people/t/harry_s_truman/index.html?inline=nyt-per" title="More articles about Harry S. Truman.">Harry S. Truman in October 1945. “I hollered to my pals to get out and did a Superman dive at the grenades.”

But “I wasn’t a Superman after I got hit,” he added, recalling the scream he let out “when that thing went off.”

Mr. Lucas was left with more than 250 pieces of shrapnel in his body and had 26 operations in the following months. He was discharged as a private first class.

The youngest member of the military to receive the Medal of Honor in any conflict other than the Civil War, he became a symbol of patriotism in the ensuing decades, meeting presidents and traveling the world to speak with frontline troops and fellow veterans.

Mr. Lucas, born in Plymouth, N.C., on Feb. 14, 1928, was a 13-year-old cadet captain in a military academy when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor.

Big for his age and eager to serve, he forged his mother’s signature on an enlistment waiver that would have allowed him to join the Marines at 17 rather than the usual 18. But in fact he was by then only 14, though the military did not learn of that until censors discovered it through a letter he had written to his 15-year-old girlfriend.

“They had him driving a truck in Hawaii because his age was discovered, and they threatened to send him home,” said D. K. Drum, who wrote Mr. Lucas’s story with him in the 2006 book “Indestructible.”

Mr. Lucas eventually stowed away aboard a Navy ship headed for combat in the Pacific. He turned himself in aboard ship to avoid being listed as a deserter, and volunteered to fight.

The officers aboard “did not know his age,” Ms. Drum said. “He didn’t give it up, and they didn’t ask.”

After the war, Mr. Lucas earned a business degree from High Point University in North Carolina and raised, processed and sold beef in the Washington area. In the 1960s, he rejoined the military, becoming an Army paratrooper to conquer his fear of heights, Ms. Drum said.

On a training jump, both of his parachutes failed, she said, and Mr. Lucas later said his stocky build and a last-second roll as he hit the ground had saved his life.

In addition to his wife, Mr. Lucas is survived by four sons, a daughter, seven grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

One of the greatest of the greatest generation. RIP Mr Lucas

Yeah it's not conducive to my God's first commandment; "Be Fruitful & Multiply". I have friends that are gay, I like the person, but not the act. But ultimately I cannot seriously judge people, but I can rile people up in a forum. BTW this place has been dead for the past couple days. I been busy myself, can't be getting chat-ass like some others...

Been there…done that…though I wasn't in a combat position (I'm a woman) the second Lebanese war (as we like to call it here) wasn't a walk in the park.

Now I'm discharged and have a very different mind set then when I was 18 and just enlisted….
