Playing Devil’s advocate here… what type of uniform was she wearing? Work or dress? The article doesn’t say. If it was a work uniform she knows better. When in uniform, ANY uniform, a member of the military should adhere to appropriate dress standards as they are representing the US military. In the military’s eyes that would be a dress uniform. Attending an upscale establishment in a work uniform would be like you and me showing up to a business meeting at a 5 star restaurant in Jeans and a t-shirt. Of course, if she WAS wearing her dress uniform, then the bouncer is just an ass.
Fleet Week in New York, she was wearing Dress Whites. I went to a few Fleet Weeks when I was in the Navy and it was mandatory that you wore Dress Whites on liberty. I had a blast.
The reason that I replied to this was that in 1986 my ship pulls into Cannes, France. I hopped a bullet train to Monaco to go to the Casino Royale. I was a Petty Officer in Dress Whites and had no problem getting into there.
She was in her Whites plain as day in the article..which to my understanding are Dress whites. totally acceptable wear as formal attire. There's no reason to quantify this with some idea that she was in dungarees. She was properly attired.
She was wearing dress whites/ and yes..the bouncer is an a$$hole!
She was not properly attired. The dress white uniform is appropriate for working in an office. It's basically equivalent to what many people wear to church. The dress code was cocktail attire. If she wanted to be in a Navy uniform that evening she should have acquired a Navy formal dress uniform. That is the only uniform that meets the requirements for cocktail attire. If she did not own, and did not choose to acquire, a Navy formal dress uniform she should have purchased a formal gown (the gown would not have to be black and it would not have to be floor length because it was cocktail attire, not formal attire). She should be disciplined for making her childish error public.

I understand your skepticism. It’s always good to question. There are, indeed, dogs trained to detect cancer. However, the reason doctors started testing dogs for this purpose in the first place was because of anecdotal evidence of dogs detecting cancer in people. They don’t know it’s cancer, all they know is that their human smells “wrong” in that spot, so they keep sniffing at it. After researching, they found that dogs COULD detect the cancer. The training just teaches them to specifically look for it, and to give a specific signal when they find it.

Seriously? Be aggressive but if she says no back off is a how-to for rape? I am so sick of these man-haters trying to turn men into effeminate little pansies. I actually LIKE men.
God it sucks so bad that all you hear are the crying loud fem dingbats in the news. Wheres the voice of the normal, everyday Woman such as yourself?? (or any girl I've ever dated lol)
To act as though there is something wrong with a man making a move is insane. It just has to be at the right time in a relationship

This story is joyous and sad at the same time. Obviously the mother did not get proper prenatal care, or she would have known she had HIV. There is no reason for that. There are plenty of programs to allow women who can not afford it to get prenatal care. Then, after doctors go to extraordinary lengths to save her baby from HIV, she just stopped giving the baby the meds. In my book that is child abuse. It is just so sad.
You mean programs like planned parenthood that provide prenatal care? Oh wait...
I have to agree with you about the Mom not giving the baby his/her meds. HIV is an illness that you don't mess around with. Someone needs to make sure the baby gets it's meds for as long as necessary. Mom seems to be making sure that she's taking her own medications; why not her child?

There is a big difference between interacting with an animal and dragging a baby out of the water and letting your child sit on it. If a friendly dog comes up to you, do you sit on it?

I would need to see some video before I really make a judgment. I was in the French Quarter once during Mardi Gras and a friend of mine broke her ankle BADLY. The ambulance came and some jerk was filming. He kept shoving the camera in her face and trying to get close in to film her dangling foot, and the EMTs kept having to go around him. The police told him to stop and he kept saying “freedom of the press! I have a right to film!” After one of the EMTs trying to carry the stretcher to the ambulance almost tripped over him (they won’t roll over cobblestones), one of my large male friends told him exactly where he was going to put the gentleman’s camera if he didn’t move along. Morons wanting to make a buck on Youtube regularly get in the way of rescue personnel, and then claim their freedom is being infringed upon. Forgive me if I have trouble feeling sorry for this voyeuristic little weasel.
So then why don't you wait before making a judgement,Tex? You refer to this guy as a "voyeuristic little weasel" when you have no idea who he is. Maybe he is just standing up for citizen's rights, maybe he has seen corrupt police abuse others rights, and is doing what he can to help injustice. From your comments one could conclude without evidence like you just did, that maybe you are just a du** as* redneck from TX. Don't be a hypocrite.
Put the broad brush away .
Turbo, I know who he is. TEX was right.
That's called "getting in the way" and "getting in the way" is NOT protected by any part of the constitution. Filming has NOTHING to do with it. The police can and often DO tell credentialed press where they may film/broadcast from. This may be for the safety of the officers, the safety of the press, public, or whatever else is reasonable. Even credentialed press can't go ANYWHERE they want, ANYTIME they want. The little weasel you say in LA should have been told in no uncertain terms to "get back or go to jail." I don't know why the cop you had on scene didn't want to take action. I'd have to see video of the scene to make a judgement on that.
I AM totally with you on people getting in the way. If did not happen to me ever when I was driving or attending in the ambulace, but I'm sure it happens.
However, if one is NOT in the way, I am all for being able to photograph/video anything in public. There are things that I personally will NOT photograph or video, and I do look down on people that do, but it shouldn't be illegal.
We can not (and should not try) to legislate manners, or even morality.

So by your logic, we shouldn’t judge those who have their daughters undergo female genital mutilation, or people who like little boys. Maybe we shouldn’t have laws at all. Who are we to judge someone else by our values? That is part of what makes a society you idiot… deciding on a shared set of values and definition of right and wrong.

I have a guess why these “ladies” became upset. Decades ago when I worked at RL, some customers who were too cheap to pay for a beverage, but didn’t want to drink water would ask for extra lemons for their water. They would make you bring two whole lemons cut up, then they would take sugar packets and make themselves what we called “redneck lemonade” Generally people who drank redneck lemonade didn’t tip either. They would get mad if you tried to refill their water because it watered down their drink, but if a roaming manager sees that you aren’t keeping a table’s glasses full you get in trouble from them. No win.
That wasn't the situation. The lemonade once mixed tends to leave a residue on the glass, sort of like pulp floating in the glass. One of the people kept complaining that the glass was dirty and the waitress replaced it three times. After the 3rd time the patron asked for a plastic cup instead but was upset the the waitress wasn't apologetic "enough" about the "dirty" glasses.

I wish there were more specifics on this case. In all the cases I have read where they claimed the child was taken solely on the basis of weight, it was actually because of dangerous medical complications resulting from their weight and the parents refusal to take steps to save their child’s life. If a parent refuses to treat a child’s type 1 diabetes, putting them at risk of death the public demands the child be saved. If it is obeisity related type 2 do we turn a blind eye? Most of these actions are initated by doctors treating children in hospitals. If she was starving her child would it be OK for her to move to excape the supervision of the court?
You may find this of interest:
Jehovah Witnesses do not believe in blood transfusions.The following is from 2 cases in 2011:
"State Attorney's Offices – which usually prosecute crime – have intervened for minors in these cases since 1993, when the Florida Supreme Court ruled it was a conflict for hospitals to directly petition judges.
"The way I look at it, at least it creates a forum for the issues to be heard," said Maureen Hackett, a prosecutor who handles these cases for the Palm Beach County state attorney's office
The legal threshold for a child's court-ordered transfusion over parental objection: "Reasonable medical certainty of imminent death."
Do you know why Jehovah's Witnesses refuse to take in a blood transfusion?
There are valid medical reasons not to, and even you should not accept blood.
But that is your choice, and no one should force you to reject a blood transfusion if you want to accept one.
Learn about it. The more you know of the consequences of blood, the more you will be inclined to reject it. - Acts 15:19-20, 28-29, 21:25
The primary reason to reject blood is not medical but is to respect and obey God's command not to eat or drink or take in blood. This is the first and main reason why we do not accept blood transfusions.

As long as animals poop, and vegetables are grown in the ground, there will be some level of foodbourne illness. All we can do is try our best to minimize it.

This wouldn’t only be about women in their 50′s. Some women go into premature menopause for a variety of reasons. They lose their fertility before they even hit their 40′s. Maybe it could also be applied to women who have lost their fertility to cancer treatments. I am always wary of arguments that say something is bad because someone could use it in a bad way. That’s like saying we shouldn’t get to have guns, because some people use them for crime.
How about the natural effect this might have? What would be the physical ramifications of an older woman going through the changes of pregnancy? I was taught by my wife of the physical changes a woman's body goes through and that rebounding from a pregnancy gets harder as a woman ages. This could be dangerous to mess with God's intentions.

Acually, this woman is the best argument for free birth control I have ever seen. Someone PLEASE give her free birth control before she reproduces!!

I wonder how long it will be before some bleeding-heart blames this on budget cuts that kept this poor victimized man suffering from mental health problems from getting the help he needed.

Even if you thing homosexuality is a sin, I know lots of people who sin in lots of ways and I still love them. According to the bible sex out of wedlock is a sin. Do these people boycott every star who has children out of wedlock, or cohabitates? Ellen is never in your face about her sexuality. She doesn’t try to hide it, but doesn’t rub your nose in it. It is a relatively private matter for her, as it should be. she’s promoting products, not an agenda. She just seems like a genuinely nice person.
Acually, she gave one network grief over not hiring her because she's gay. I don't care if she's gay SHE"S NOT FUNNY!
redhead, I agree with you 100%. I am a Christian and despise the militant LGBT or whatever community that spreads their nastiness around but any person, just living their life and not forcing their viewpoint on me is going to receive the same respect from me. I think ellen is a kind funny human being and agree with bill on everything but the Mccarthy reference. Boycotting pennies is anyones choice but it will not be one I would make. Live and let live

More likely it is to keep morons from going out there, getting drunk and falling through the floor, then suing New York for millions of dollars.

This isn’t a teacher just acting stupid. This is Social Justice Math, or Social Mathmatics. I read about this crap MONTHS ago, I thought Glenn was the one talking about it, but maybe not. No, I’m not some crazy conspiracy theorist. You can find sites all over the internet talking about this “wonderful” new tool for teaching children about social justice. It is plain and simple indoctrination.
As a former teacher, you are correct. This teacher was made a scapegoat for what is being taught in our universities.
Wait 'til February. It's Black History Month. Every teacher, even Math and Science teachers have to come up with a way to add a racial angle to their lesson plans. It reminds me of the Soviet Union, were there had to be a Marxist angle to everything. The was a communist way to teach Russian in classroom, a communist way to do art, a communist way to collect trash. I'm very, very glad no longer to be involved with the public school system in any way. I doubt I could keep my mouth shut.

Well, as the mother of an autistic child, my answer to them would be that they needed a bit of what I refer to as “clam kick therapy.” I would be more than happy to provide them with this therapy free of charge.
You will see a key difference here between Muslims and Jews. When a Muslim leader makes a crazy anti-christian statement, he gets cheered and/or his craziness is rationalized. Jews, on the other hand, will denounce this crazy mess.
That's true. The overwhelming majority of Jews think that it borders on insanity to truly believe that (any significant number of) Christians will turn violent if Tebow wins....just as the overwhelming majority of Christians think that the Christian church in Kansas is crazy when it teaches (and protests at soldiers' funerals) that American soldiers deserve to die because Americans tolerate homosexuality. And you are correct, unfortunately, that today's Muslims, by contrast, will in too many countries, gather by the thousands to support and cheer on bigotry and paranoia and hate.
Technically, we all deserve death and hell.... Westboro's slightly correct on that. But for Christ, who was the lamb of God slain before the foundation of the world for our sins, everyone gets death and hell. When they(Westboro) make a distinction on why soldiers deserve to die, they are incorrect. We Christians aren't better than anyone else.... period.

First off, RodentKing should change his moniker to SwineKing because he is a pig.
Secondly, this has nothing to do with their race. This is all about a culture of entitlement and anger. Liberals have been telling our black population since birth that they need help to get anywhere in our society. They have been told that the “white man” is out to get them, and that they can never get ahead. They have been told by the racist ASSHATS that they are nothing but animals. They are starting to live down to everyone’s expectations. Big suprise. Conservatives are called racists, but we are really the only ones who know that our black population doesn’t NEED us to prop them up. We see their potential. Entitlements don’t prop them up, they hold them down!!
Activists will protect these girls from consequences, saying this is the product of the cops having been bad to the black community for so long. *rolling my eyes* That won’t help them. What they need is a good boot in the ass to kick them onto the right path.
