  1. Stars and Stripes | Sep 10, 2014 | by Chris Carroll WASHINGTON -- The Air Force said Tuesday it was awaiting a legal opinion from the Defense Department's top lawyer on whether an enlisted airman who's an atheist can opt out of the phrase "so help me God" in his re-enlistment oath. The airman, stationed at Creech Air Force Base in Nevada, was told in late August that federal law requires those words in the enlistment oath, attorney Monica Miller of the American Humanist Society said. Air Force policy previously allowed airmen to drop the phrase if they wished, but the policy was changed in 2013. "The opinion that we're seeking will help inform future decisions and the latitude that can be taken with the oath," Air Force spokeswoman Rose Richeson said Tusday. "But the Air Force has to comply with law." However, a defense official who discussed the matter on the condition of anonymity said the airman's right to modify the oath to fit his lack of religious belief is not in question outside the Air Force. "I'll tell you that there is no legal requirement to say 'So help me God' in any federal oath/affirmation by a person taking the oath," the official, who was not authorized to speak publicly about the matter, said in an email. "That is, saying 'So help me God' in any federal oath is optional at the discretion of the person taking the oath (not the person administering the oath)." A host of Supreme Court and lower court cases support the airman's right to opt out of calling on a deity, as does as the text of the U.S. Constitution itself, said military legal expert Eugene Fidell, who teaches military law at Yale University. According to Article VI of the Constitution, federal officers "shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States." But a religious test is what a requirement to say "so help me God" amounts to, Fidell said. Miller said last week the American Humanist Society was prepared to sue the Air Force and individual officers involved in the decision if the airman is not allowed to reenlist. The airman, whose term of service expires in November, has chosen to remain anonymous to avoid what he fears would be hostile reactions from others in the military or the public, Miller said. *** Smart kid. The religious loons in the military are almost as intolerant as the gaystapo.
  2. I applaud his courage. My guess is that he will be allowed to reenlist without having to orally recite the fantasy of god.
  3. The US administration is too busy trying to divide and weaken the US domestically than worry about those pesky foreigners. By all accounts, they're doing a bang-up job.
  4. Black criminals kill more blacks than anybody. Why doesn't this raise the ire of the oppressed? No hay to make? Come on now, a serious answer please. Where are Jesse and Al when 100 black kids a month are gunned down by other blacks? No Hay. Is it only "racist," and therefore objectionable, when these opportunists can connive a nefarious plot? Nobody can be that stupid. Instead they fabricate fantasies against cops and neighborhood watchmen who display grievous wounds from criminal animals they've killed. It's all quite comedic and amateurish. You need some better handlers. Queers and Mexicans and females are stealing your advantage.
  5. Chiang Kai-shek's eventual loss to Mao is what cut short the US occupation of Japan post WWII. Only a fraction of MacArthur's reforms took hold before focus started turning to China and Korea.
  6. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2014/08/15/slavery-pregnancy-drove-california-professor-to-accost-teen-pro-lifer-say/?intcmp=obinsite Mireille Miller-Young, professor of pornography and sex. The "cultural legacy of slavery" caused you to assault a 16-year old? Sounds reasonable ... USA! USA! USA!
  7. A camera caught the dead thug robbing a convenience store minutes earlier, before he was stopped walking down the middle of the roadway. Here's a picture of Michael Brown released by his family -- reportedly taken just days prior to his death.
  8. I bought a Kindle book through Amazon last week. Where is the sidebar? Is it a section of the forum? *edit* Never mind, I found it.
  9. One less criminal robbing convenience stores. Well done I say.
  10. A taxi is like an airplane. Just sit there and shut your gob. Jeezus Chreist some people have to whine abut everything. If it gets you there in a reasonable time and your baggage isn't lost -- just STFU. You win, you goddamn idiots. It's always the same twats whining. You expect fuggen caviar and a neck massage for a 35 baht taxi ride. British STFU.
  11. The benevolent gatekeepers need to double electric bills to get my attention. Of course it's only a matter of time. Can anybody stop them? I don't think so. This happiness initiative is just tickling me to bits. I love the Military Government and their move toward greater happiness by increasing utilities. You can't imagine how happy this makes me. I'm happy beyond comprehension!
  12. A major American city under curfew... shocking. This is an anecdote for America. Rotten in the core, but cleans up nicely. The people who are ashamed and cleaning up are outnumbered by the rabid scum 2-1. America has become Angola. Celebrate the diversity!
  13. Thais should have a handicap -- like Negroes. Where are the law-thumping Sharpton idiots claiming Thais have the RIGHT to steal and pillage when they feel slighted? This is an injustice!
