Go figure......



In his State of the Union address last month, Obama vowed to end the policy that bars gays and lesbians who serve in the military from openly referring to their sexuality - commonly referred to as the 'Don't ask, Don't tell' policy.

CBS news have just run a poll to judge the response of their readers.

34% of Americans now support allowing homosexuals to serve openly in the military.

However, in the same poll -

51% of Americans now support allowing gays and lesbians to serve openly in the military.......

You may need to think about it for a minute - and then reflect that these are the same Americans who vote into power the most powerful world leader.

Just as well they weren't given the choice of voting on whether they thought 'friends of Dorothy' should be allowed to serve openly in the military.

This is why we are a Republic and not a democracy.

The founding fathers knew that mob rule was bad. They had no idea that my countrymen would evolve into a pack of half-wits. Though some might argue that they knew too well they might.

Keep in mind that our beloeved leaders in Washington, DC decided to dumb down education in 1988. They felt that the public were too educated. They did one hell of a job, didn't they?

Kissies,

Ah Americans! Don't you just love them? So sweet! So innocent! So thick! Though would a similar poll carried out in OUR dumbed down country perhaps provide exactly the same results? Innit.

I am Stan said...

Whats your point Anna,

are you informing me that you are "oh so much more intelegent than those silly Americans"

Or is it a gay thing?or both perhaps?...what? FFS!

I wonder if people like Alexandra the Great and Julius Caesar would have been allowed to serve had there been similar referenda in Macedonia and Rome respectively at the time?

Devolve, surely?

Dumb arsed article from a reactionary, anti-gay obsessed, stuck up, professional martyr cow.

Fuck you and fuck Holborn. I'm sick of coming across you dick-arsed name when I check these sites.

Stick to you own piss hole in the snow.

I think the best solution to this queer business is to give over an entire continent to these people who, for very often reasons of fashionability and to be "in", prefer same sex "partners".
They could then practice whatever took their fancy amongst there own kind and would not influence suggestible youngsters.
The continent I have in mind is Antarctica.

J Demetriou said...

Lovely stuff.

No wonder Obo likens the author of this site to Paul Dacre.

No better than hate filled Mail readers, people here.

Fucking tools.

I took it that Anna was making a humorous point inasmuch the poll asked the same question twice, but in different words, and got different results. Hence Alisa's comment. What's anti-gay about that? JD - bit surprising if you wouldn't find Holby's name & Anna's name here as it's Holby's blog & Anna is part of the blogging team. What's wrong? Holby's & Anna's blogs getting lot more visitors than yours?

There is a program on tonight,
Young, Angry and White (C4,7:30), featuring men meeting that description. You have been instructed on how to respond to said programme in the online Radio Times listing:

"Still, it's worth taking time to watch the programme, if only to shake your head from time to time and let out a weary sigh."

Winston Smith is busy as ever. Make your sigh convincingly weary, citizen, or else.

Vladimir said...

That poll only shows that "gay" and "lesbian" sound like positive words, while "homosexual" sounds negative, like a disease of some sort.

This is exactly why gays started calling themselves gays.

Martina Navratilova said...

Why did the poll ask both questions and how were those questions framed? Lots of people I would guess may take a different attitude to male homosexuals on one hand and lesbians on the other serving in the military.

In fact I would suggest many would believe if a woman was in the military, a lesbian would probably be the best kind, as they are associated with more masculine behavious. It seems a possiblity the second question was taken as 'lesbians' rather than all gays.

so 34% would believe its OK for gay men, and 51% would believe its OK for lesbians.

Anna Raccoon said...

Martina,

An excellent point, and I think you are right.

There is a link to the actual poll results in my post which gives a full record of the numbers surveyed and the different results received when the wording was changed.

hi ronny my petal xxxx

great stuff. now there's no danger of me being blackmailed. i can join up and serve obama

to the hilt.

Dick the Prick said...

Good grief - few assorted reactions there to a poll of all things.

Quite a strange thing benders in the military when everyone knows it's just Deepcut Barracks made large where bullying, hazing, beasting etc are considered standard. It's hardly the sexuality of the soldier that makes the difference - a bit like voluntary prison but with better guards and booze.

Hey ho. Oh and Martina - 'male homosexuals on the one hand' - tee hee hee....

In other news, 8 out of 5 poll analysts couldn't add the "strongly favor (sic)" and "somewhat favor (sic)" figures together to get the actual totals of 59% and 70%.

Let's re-run one of those hilarious posts bemoaning the degrading of GCSEs. Oh, let's please do.

Heheh, analysts. I bet you are.

Ron Broxted said...

Have you all missed me?

Gay weddings make me crwy and Carmarthenshire pub trawling for arse earns me a black eye.

To Dublin airport and Aer Lingus check in where Gerald gave me a funny look and asked if I was a cross dresser. I gave him a hard stare and curtly informed him my dress had a designer label. "Did you pack this cardboard box yourself?" Was his next question. "Yes" I replied, "do I look as if I can afford the services of a butler?" He checks my cardboard box and issues me with a boarding card, rear of the plane next to the toilet, great joy. Chapter One, I arrive in Hampshire for a gay wedding, Oooh Matron. Chapter Two Ron and Colin get married, civil partnership then. It matters naught as to wording for love is manlove though am jealous and long for being a bride instead of a bridesmaid yet again.Of course in many countries two gay men would be stoned to death. Intolerance from Lithuania to Uganda, from China to Jamaica. After the reception I return to my hotel room and wank myself off like there is no tomorrow. I awake with a Costa Coffee shop paper napkin stuck firmly to my sticky bellend and notice that my palm is blistered. Later that morning I get the train to Fishguard (change at Cardiff and Swansea). Mooching around the campus at Swansea I come to the decision that looking for young twinks amongst the undergraduates will take too long. I realise that I will have four hours to kill in Carmarthen. Truly, God mocks me. It is then that I decide to work upon my greatest blog "The Definitive guide to pulling gay men in Welsh pubs when you are waiting for the midnight train to Rosslare". It is to be translated into Portuguese shortly. Firstly I happen upon Lammas Street (think Sunset Boulevard but with Welsh fucking accents). "The Boars Head" a disparate gathering of men mostly fit playing darts. They all look straight so I decide not to risk following one into the gents. Then to the "Golden Lion". If you wish a microcosm of broken Britain go no further. Fit muscular Tattooed locals shouting about whom they would fuck for a free beer. At only £2.50 a pint I decide to take a chance, I am suddenly punched hard in my right eye and sent sprawling with my cock still out in my hand. I pick myself up and with my eye still streaming and closing up. "It's worse in the Whitland Pub" The man who had punched me said taking the opportunity to plant his heavy working boot firmly up my money maker. I exit to see a flock of nice looking young sheep walking across the bridge, hem they look tempting as a last resort I think to myself. Alas I didn't have the energy to chase them.Instead I enter a small back street pub where I score in the gents with the only gay in the village so as to speak. God, he went at me like a breeding bull and my legs were still twitching and I was having hot flushes all the way home on the ferry. Why don't they ban kids screaming on Irish ferry's at 4am. I just offered them some sweets, nothing more honest guv.

Mrs Araminta Ratface said...

delaire does dyfed, Ron Broxted is a rampant old queen who dreams of editing the Independent. You have to admire his ambition being as he came from a broken home. Having broke most of it himself. He grew up on a filthy multi-cultural sink-estate in Peckham where his mother sexually entertained large West Indian men and rag and bone mens horses in return for cash. Young Broxted was doomed to be a failure from the day he born. He might as well have loser tattooed on his forehead instead of the word Cunt.

Is Ron Broxted just a talented artist,or an Establishment tool?

the beast of farringdon said...

The services are full of poofs
Fucking great!
They cook,clean,and make great bandsmen, medics(same thing)and dont bother anybody
Nobody gives a fuck as long as they are discreet
Dykes however are notorious predators

Rod Liddle said...

Broxted is a tool, as in complete prick, not as in establishment.

Ron Broxted said...

the beast of farringdon, I would have you know darlink that I served for three weeks as a trainee nurse in the T.A. Sadly I and the rest of my platoon were thrown out when we were caught having a daisey chain in the drill hall in Hertfordshire.
Had I not been thrown out I would have been the first person in my whole disreputable family to have served the in the forces for three generations.
Previously all my relatives had been deserters and cowards. It's in our genes.

Rebel Saint said...

Wonder what happens to the poll results when the question is phrased, "Are you in favour of faggots & dykes serving in the military"

Pavlov's Cat said...

If gays pay tax to uphold the militairy, they must have equal right to serve, and unless the "Don't ask, don't tell" service applies to Hetero folks aswell, they better well shut the fuck up and stop complaining about Them Queer Folks.

In this case, who gives a fuck who direct democracy says - The gays pay, the gays stay. Simples.

This is the inevitable result of allowing an alliance of jews (Straw, Miliband, Levy) and homosexualists to take over any country, Look at the ruins of the UK. We are overrun by persons of dubious racial origin and there is a policy of state enforced homosexuality corrupting the youth of our society. We are truely the cess-pit of the earth. The Muzzies are a major problem, but wouldn't even be here if the Judeo-Homosexualist alliance wern't forcing this down our throat.

Delores Shayler said...

Fuck me,it's worse than i thought. We're not only fighting Lizards in Zionist, NWO, MMGW skins. They're Gay Lizards in Zionist, NWO, MMGW skins.

I watched the C4 programme and I can understand his anger. His sense of fear over our struggle to maintain an identity in a rapidly changing world, whilst watching our leaders seem to place anything but our interests to the fore, must surely strike a chord in most of us. If you are young, white and from a less than privileged background, who does speak for you?

Anonymouse you make a valid point here regarding smokers. I am partial to a large Cuban....Oooh matron.
By the way it is nice to see you making a sensible comment for a change compared to the usual bollocks you utter.

I was hoping that the Tories would revcerse the smoking ban in pubs/clubs/etc... a kind of return to the "smokeRoom" days... but Zanucon is following the NHS propaganda broadcast lines - attacking the small bit of happiness we have left.

Ron Broxted said...

Speaking of Gays in the services I sure that it must me acceptable now and no longer against the law. I mean it stands to reason on nuclear submarines that are submerged for many months when patrolling that the crew are going to be fucking each other otherwise their balls would explode. I wonder if they have to fuck in order of rank, sort of pairing up? If this is the case, what about the poor Commander, who does he get to fuck or be fucked by?
The RAF has always been full of Gays just look at Biggles boning Algy at every opportunity, and they always like to sport large bushy tashes don't they? Yep they are gay and the jury doesn't need to retire to work that one out me lud.
What of the army? The late Ned Sherrin talked of all the young Guardsmen he got fucked by in London for a few pounds?
I myself have had my big cheese split by the odd soldier, and one was particularly odd in that he wanted me to shout orders at him whilst he boned me. Their blog site is called ARSE, need I say more? Yes us Gays are a fact of life, so live with it you knucle dragging secretly bi-curious cunts.

Anonymous, if smoking is the only pleasure you have left in life perhaps I could show you the pleasure of putting something else in your mouth, that will still make you short of breath, but will not make your clothes stink.

nothing to do with faggots but the Greek socialists (commies) have passed a law banning all cash transactions over 1500 euros. It's the start of the cashless society.Nothing to do with us? Wrong. Once our masters see the "benefits" they'll all be at it.
Total and utter control of the plebs.They are planning to totally fuck us,the whole of Europe will be on giant gulag

Anonymous @18:31 - take no notice of J Demetriou - he's caught in the grip of Small Man Syndrome - either he's under 5'6" or his dick's as tiny as the tiniest dick known to mankind. He comes out of his stall with the 'red mist' fogging his eyeballs. It's pointless responding to his comments, since he's clearly in Annaphylactic shock. The more he exposes himself to the allergy trigger, the more he will damage what's left of his social reasoning. Leave him to it and ignore him.

Had some bad news tonight, my cousin Steven Barker who tortured and murdered Baby Peter was earlier nearly killed in an attack in jail by another prisoner, my cousin who like me is a BNP supporter is though to be seriously injured following the attack.I'm not saying what he did was right, it was wicked, but how come my cousin can be attacked inside a prison with all the screws about, but Ali Dizaei that corrupt bacon gets to be on Rule 43straight away? One rule for the ex-PIgs and another for my blood.
