This actually made me say "what. the. fuck" out loud:

Spend any time on Tumblr and you will run into nutcases like this; if this is legit to begin with. I like to think it is a troll post.

Some people on Tumblr are a special kind of retarded.

Better to go to Tumblr for porn and nothing else.

Oh no, they're for real. Some day I'll tell you about my one foray into animal law...

Glancing through FB, I came across this little gem: (link points to the OP itself, not to the FB posting)

At my first reading, I jumped up and blurted out "WTF, OVER???!!!"

ARMY BANS TERM BATTLE BUDDY. REPLACES WITH WARRIOR COMPANION IN NEW ALARACT MESSAGE

Our sources in HQDA sent us a copy of ALARACT 126/2016 titled PROFESSIONALIZATION OF CONDUCT – REPLACEMENT OF TERM “BATTLE BUDDY” WITH MORE APPROPRIATE TERM “WARRIOR COMPANION” , which calls for the term “Battle Buddy” to be dropped and replaced with “Warrior Companion“, as the term Battle Buddy is unfair and hurtful to those new soldiers who have not served in battle. This ALARACT is set to be distributed Army wide on Monday. We have included excerpts and posted photos of the ALARACT below.

The ALARACT also includes instructions requiring anyone witnessing someone using the now outdated term of Battle Buddy to report it to their Chain of Command so an investigation can be initiated.

In my 15 years of service I never thought I would see the day where the “everyone gets a trophy” mentality propagated by helicopter moms would be fully embraced by the Army. We are done for. If I didn’t have this ALARACT sitting in front of me I never would have believed it.


EXCERPTS from ALARACT 126/2016:

5. THE FOLLOWING GUIDANCE ON CONDUCT IS PROVIDED.

5.A. COMMANDERS AND LEADERS WILL REINFORCE A CLIMATE WHERE CURRENT AND FUTURE MEMBERS OF THE ARMY TEAM, INCLUDING SOLDIERS, ARMY CIVILIANS, CONTRACTORS, AND FAMILY MEMBERS, UNDERSTAND THAT A CULTURE OF INCLUSIVENESS IS KEY TO A COHERENT, HIGH-PERFORMING TEAM, AND THAT PHRASES LIKE “BATTLE BUDDY” CAN LEAD TO DIVISIVENESS BY SEGREGATING THOSE WHO’VE SERVED DURING COMBAT FROM THOSE WHO HAVE RECENTLY JOINED THE ARMY TEAM.

5.B. DUE TO A REDUCTION IN DEPLOYMENT OPERATIONS, THE LIKELIHOOD OF NEW MEMBERS OF THE ARMY TEAM HAVING SEEN BATTLE IS INCREASINGLY DWINDLING, AND SO IN THE INTEREST OF INCLUDING ALL MEMBERS OF THE ARMY TEAM, THE PHRASES “BATTLE BUDDY” OR IT’S ABBREVIATION, “BATTLE”, SHOULD BE CURTAILED AND REPLACED WITH THE MORE INCLUSIVE “WARRIOR COMPANION” AND “WARRIOR”, ESPECIALLY IN LIGHT OF THE ARMY’S CREATION AND PROMULGATION OF A WARRIOR ETHOS DURING INITIAL ENTRY TRAINING AND THROUGHOUT THE NCOES SYSTEM.








Well, that's to be expected, as the Army has literally gone to hell since I left, but still, it's so damn outrageous that I suspected that something HAD to be afoot.

Well, I dug into it a bit, and found that the story is actually at least five years old. In 2011 Stars & Stripes ran a story about the rumor. The hard copy "ALARACT" is a total forgery.

Thank God, it's just a rumor.
I'd really hate to think that our leadership has gone so far astray that they'd worry about social justice issues rather than killing enemies of the U.S.

Sad part is the Army could release a policy like this tomorrow and it would not surprise me. Nor would I question if it was for real or not

I've seen almost as dumb shit. I love how Cmdrs love to change acronyms just for shits & grins. Even the Ranger Handbook has been rewritten due to the change of a few acronyms in the 90's. No real change in tactics.

So while going over my usual morning routine of coffee and reading about things that reinforce the Ebola/Meteor "Final Solution", I came across another lovely example of the downfall of Western Civilization.

This time, it's an "article" (translation: insane ramblings of yet another mentally ill millennial) that accuses all of us cis-het "normies" that "Men who like women with vaginas are the problem with society nowadays".

The full range of WTF is there. The cringing. The lip-curling disgust. The face palming. And finally the "Jesus H Christ" lip movings. On and on and on the screed goes, where it stops ---- everyone already knows..........bat-shit crazy town.

Quit Projecting Your Desire: On Transphobia, Lust And Gender By: Jetta Rae DoubleCakes @ 2:37am (lol), who has other lovely "articles" titled What Satan Taught Me About Social Justice and Color Me Kinky: Giddy Up For Cowboy Fetish: Queer cowboys getting it on successfully champions the notion of being man enough to take a man.

Hot off the presses:

There is literally too many gems/turds on here to quote them all. Enjoy, faggots.

He didn't list his rank on Call of Duty; a bit disappointing. He should gain about a hundred pounds and apply for membership in his local militia, god knows Texas has plenty.

That's great that the Illuminati are forgoing the hassle and expense of running their own mail server from their own domain - I mean if you're going to rule the world you need all the personal bandwidth you can get.

Saw a post on another site where a guy offered another person a "Free Colostomy Bag Latte", then told him to bring his own straw, the big straw.

That makes two of us ...and we both agree on your second point.

However, should we maybe sit, drink beer and laugh at these Europeans who can't spell "logic"?
