Is anyone else going to the Lincoln Day Dinner in Bremerton on March 6th? Secretary of State Kim Wyman and Michael Medved (?) are going to be among the special guests.

Why in the hell would a single person hate Valentines day?  It's people with SO's that should be hating the stupid day.  Especailly dudes with chicks that expect a LOT on the day.  Your only reason so far for hating it is that you didn't get anything and you didn't get a day off.  Why would you expect a day off?  Nobody else gets a day off.  You'd rather sit at home all day and think about how lonely you are?  Yeah, you didn't get anything, but you didn't have to wait inline with the other dudes to spend way too much money on overpriced roses either.

I understand that it reminds you that you're single, but if you're this bitter and single minded in real life as you are here I think I know why you are single.

Uh, did you actually read my post?

I have reasons for hating the holiday aside from not getting anything and not getting a day off. The holiday is such a huge slap to the face and it always seems to fall on a weekday, a work day or a duty day. The last time it fell on a day when I didn't have work, duty, or class was 2008 or 2009.

I can remember the exact date during my 2011-2012 deployment that we crossed the international dateline when we were heading back to the States after deployment because it was the fourteenth, meaning that I had to live the same day twice that year in 2012.

You point out how the silver lining in all of this is that I don't have to pay for overpriced roses (or anything like that). I think I'd prefer to buy some overpriced roses over the predicament that I'm in.

The ironic thing is that I used to like the holiday in elementary school mostly because it was an excuse to eat candy in class.

I think I might cut the Roman Saint Valentine some slack, but the companies that promote the everloving s*** out this holiday should be shot.

Life is so frustrating (especially when the Navy and your chain of command screws you over but it's a rant for another time).

I didn't get any presents or anything for Christmas last year, but at least I got a day off, no, three days off, out of it.

Valentine's Day is just utterly useless. I've found a bunch of reasons for hating it, like not receiving jack diddly squat for said holiday. When I was on my first deployment and we crossed the international dateline when we got back to the United States, guess which day we crossed the international dateline? It was Valentine's Day.

And I can't believe that Valentine's Day has infected your country, Tik. Are there any nations that are free from its lunacy?

I just want to go back in time and kick whoever created this holiday right between the legs.

St. Valentine, from what I remember from a picture book I was given after my First Communion, was a pretty good guy.

Say what you will about Saint Valentine, you probably won't be able to change my mind. The holiday is just basically one big "F*** YOU!".

I'm probably going to eat some chocolate and burn some Valentine's Day cards, which is the equivalent of voting for Ron Paul in the 2012 Presidential Election, which I actually did.

The holiday falls on a Friday which is a workday for me, meaning I can't stay home all day. It could be worse. The holiday could've fallen on a duty day, meaning I would've have to stay at my workplace the entire day.

My next duty day falls on a Monday, which is President's Day, meaning I have to come to work on a holiday. DAMNIT! I'm getting double screwed.

inb4 Valentine's Day bashing.

What's wrong with bashing the holiday?

What are you guys doing for Saint Valentine's Day this year? The holiday actually makes me kind of wish that I was unemployed because it always seems to fall on a workday or one of my duty days and it falls on a Friday this year.

If you are so concerned about whether the death penalty makes terrorists into martyrs, why not advocate using weapons dipped in pig blood (if you really want to go that route)? It will make them think twice about pulling off something like the Boston marathon bombing because anything from a pig is considered unclean. I heard that the British actually used a strategy like this in Afghanistan during the 1800s.
9  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Death Penalty decision imminent for Boston Bomber on: February 05, 2014, 07:29:47 pm
If they execute the Boston marathon bomber, can they NOT bury him in Virginia? Virginia is the birthplace of eight presidents and it would be a sacrilege. Just send him back to Chechnya or wherever his family came from.
10  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Death Penalty decision imminent for Boston Bomber on: January 31, 2014, 12:19:13 am
I think one way to execute him AND deter future bombers is to execute him and cremate him if you want to go that route.

It seems like America has become wussified when it comes to dealing with terrorists like him.
11  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Death Penalty imminent for Boston Bomber on: January 30, 2014, 02:47:28 am
Why can't we just put him in one of those federal prisons like for serious offenders?

My post got deleted for some reason, but I'm going to reply again to this thread.

Why the hell did Tsarnaev get special treatment? And by special treatment, I mean him being placed in isolation away from other people in the prison system.

The guy is a terrorist and that's the only thing that matters in this topic. If he gets the death penalty, then he had it coming.
13  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Ted Nugent: Obama is a "Subhuman Mongrel" on: January 25, 2014, 04:24:55 pm
I didn't expect to get called a troll. I'm so sick of people accusing Obama bashers of being racists. I'm so sick of the race card being played whenever Obama gets bashed.

And is it bad to call someone a 'subhuman' even if it's someone like Osama bin Laden, the Taliban members who tried to kill Malala, or one of the bombers in the Boston Marathon bombing?

I am in the military and they don't send memos about the usage of language and words. We just get training sessions about what to say and not to say.

Anyone else remember when New York made it illegal to say the n-word? Am I the only person here who thought it was a waste of taxpayer dollars to pass that legislation? It's just a goddamned six-letter word.
15  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Ted Nugent: Obama is a "Subhuman Mongrel" on: January 25, 2014, 12:17:28 am
Is 'subhuman' a racial slur now?

If you even disagree with a black person, then you're apparently racist in the Obama Age. *rolls eyes*

My mother was born in the Philippines, but I was born in Reno, NV. I'm just bringing that up in case there is any confusion.

In all of my life, I've never met anyone from the Philippines who immigrated here illegally. All of my relatives on my mother's side of the family who weren't born here in the United States and came here went the legal route.

As for illegal immigration, there are, of course, immigrants who are here through no fault of their own because their parents brought them here at a very young age without the paperwork. What percentage of immigrants who haven't taken the legal route consists of them?
17  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Has political correctness gone too far (especially during the winter season)? on: January 15, 2014, 02:49:41 am
I agree with Senator Goldwater.

My mother, my aunt, and my cousin all immigrated to this country from the Philippines legally, why can't they?
18  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Has political correctness gone too far (especially during the winter season)? on: January 15, 2014, 02:32:13 am
I don't think that the Washington Redskins should change their name and I think that illegal immigrants should still be called illegal immigrants.

They were reluctant to become a state and were pretty comfortable as a commonwealth.

Did you guys hear about how the Christmas Parade in Tulsa, OK was renamed the "Holiday Parade"? What kind of bullsh**t is that?

And there have been people trying to get Maddox's 'The Best Page in the Universe' shutdown. At some places, I can't view the website because of Websense. Apparently, millions of porn sites pose little threat compared to some guy posting his opinions on his website.

I just want to put a huge bronze cross on my barracks room door just to see what happens.

Yes, people need to chill out and not be offended by the measliest things. Both the left and right are responsible for this. The right for trying to censore "immorality" as they call it. The left trying censor religious speech or stupid words like "penmanship". Political correctness needs to be forgotten and abolished so we can freely express ourselves like normal human beings. 

I agree. I think it's kind of silly when someone says we shouldn't use words like 'man-made' and 'congressman'.

On another note, I think it is kind of silly to use the word 'congressman' because there are representatives in the House that are women and some states (HI, NH, SD, WY) don't have a single congressman. Hehehe. Someone actually asked me "Who is the congressman from South Dakota?".

Which episode of Family Guy used abortion as a punchline? I don't think I saw the episode because I don't recall anything like that.
24  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Has political correctness gone too far (especially during the winter season)? on: January 12, 2014, 01:35:12 pm
How exactly is Family Guy a vulgar show? I know it's considered offensive by some people.

I'm confused...how is "citizen" a bad word? And is "brown bag" referring to lunch or is that some sort of racial slur I haven't heard of?

Citizen is not a bad word, but not everyone who lives in Seattle is an American citizen, hence the memo.

As for the word "brown bag", it was used as a term to refer to black people that were several shades lighter. It was used as a racial term, but still.
25  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Has political correctness gone too far (especially during the winter season)? on: January 12, 2014, 02:48:28 am
I keep forgetting about this, but I felt like posting a thread on this topic. Do you guys think that there is too much political correctness these days? Examples would be Governor Lincoln Chafee (who got a measley 36.1% of the vote despite the fact of who his father is) calling the Christmas tree a 'holiday tree' two years in a row and a federal judge in California not allowing a nativity scene in Santa Monica, CA.

Then there are other examples, like the Seattle City Council circulating a memo telling members not to use words like "citizen" and "brown bag" last year and how Family Guy actually got cancelled on a few networks. Let's not forget about the schools in New Jersey banning Christmas songs.

I'm not the kind of person who goes out of his way to offend people, but I'm not going to look over my shoulder every two seconds wondering if I offended someone.
