So let me get this straight. Outside my window right now, there's a major street festival going on. I volunteered at a booth for the gay & lesbian film festival. This year's ubiquitous stickers are for the Stonewall Democrats. Dozens & dozens & dozens of gay and lesbian couples and singles and groups are walking around, parading themselves, having a jolly old time. The damn FESTIVAL SHIRTS have god damn RAINBOWS on them.

And the fucking army shows up to recruit?

An Army of One.

Between the recruiting crisis, the looming retention crisis, the continuing deaths and maimings of U.S. Soldiers, and Don't Ask Don't Tell, I'm beginning to think that the Army's slogan is just a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Interesting that the front page of the army's website doesn't mention Iraq once, and if you do a search on the term "Iraq" most of the articles talk about it in the past tense.

What I don't get is that, between their disgust for gays and their willingness to let 1700 servicemembers die for no reason, why aren't they going all-out to let the gays be cannon fodder too? Kill two birds with one stone, as it were.

Edited to add: Oh! I forgot to mention, the dudes were in front of a gay strip club. And they sent a couple of hotties as well, which I have to believe was intentional.

No comment.
You've got to be kidding!
