Dear Anonymous

Recently some random person posted the following comment in response to my post about the possibility that the Pentagon would enforce a smoking ban on the military:

A friend of mine started smoking in the Marines because you couldn't ever take a break unless it was a smoke break. He's dead of lung cancer now at an early age.

If the military could literally force people to smoke, it ought to be able to ban smoking.

I'm confused... Who are you? Introduce yourself please. Secondly I doubt the Marines (or the military in general) forced anyone to smoke. We all have free will. If your friend chose to smoke in order to receive additional breaks that is still a choice that they made, sadly.

In other news... I'm sun burnt on the tip of my nose- like a friggin' Rudolph! HAhaahaHa! And got a hair cut today. Tomorrow: I'm getting a free initial visit with a local Chiropractor... that should be fun. "They" say it's good for you. So we'll give it a whirl. Then tomorrow night I'm going to see Sugarland and Keith Urban concert in Denver, at the Pepsi Center. This should be good times. =) THEN on Thursday I'm going to see 3 Doors Down with Kaitlyn in Denver at Fiddlers Green... WOOOO HOO I miss Denver.

PS: I miss my hubby too. With all of these trips to Denver coming up I'm missing my hubby!! We had some great times there. Maybe we could swing something when he gets back. =) It's close but will also be good times... I miss you husband!

BECCA (Mrs. GI Joe), please don't hate me. I've attempted SOOoo many times to leave comments on your blog but the damn thing wont let me! It never shows the text box for the word key thingy... I just wanted you to know that I still read your blog and do care! ;) Keep up the running!

I LOVE Keith Urban and 2 doors down!! Have fun!

And about that anonymous comment, it sounds like someone doesn't have all their facts straight and just wanted to get attention. lol

Pardon my french, but fuck that anonymous commenter. We all have free will. I agree that it is ridiculous for the military to ban smoking. I agree completely with your point of view. And if someone CHOOSES to start smoking to get an extra break, that's just it, their CHOICE. Good for you for stating your opinion without stepping on anyones toes. Obviously that person couldn't. Too bad for them.

Ok we need to talk! I got a comment almost exactly like this the other day on my smoking post and I think it's the same person. Yet HE, yes I said he didn't leave it as anonymous. I deleted it though because he seemed all about himself up on his little soap box. Last time I checked these were our own personal blogs.....

Mrs. G.I Joe said...

my life isnt easy but its the only one i got said...

I have been a smoker for almost 15 years and I quit about 2-3 weeks ago. It is true that is you smoke in the military you get more breaks but like all of you smart women have said it is a choice. We are all adults and we know that Smoking is addictive and can kill you at the very least it makes you stink, makes your breath stink and causes many other very painful diseases so if some one choose to kill them selfs slowly just to get out of work for an extra 10 min a day then I'm sorry I have no sympathy for you what so ever

Sara said...

sure, the military forces you to smoke, they line you up and shove the cigarettes down your throat, sure...please!

Crazy Shenanigans....if you want something to be "personal" then maybe it shouldn't be posted on the WORLD WIDE WEB? Just a thought? Dont you people have anything better to do with your time then bitch and complain about all this stupid shit????? Like work or reading a book or watching paint dry.....anything? Pretty pathetic if you ask me! I am exercising my "free will"

Anonymous I think it is funny you talk about these lady's not having a life yet you are the one commenting on THERE blog's at 1 in the morning. Sure it may look like I am doing the same but I have a good excuse. I am in IRAQ fighting in this military you want to comment about. I am proud of the military that I serve and will defend it at all cost. Your friend may he/she rest in piece who died of lung cancer cause they wanted to start smoking to get a few extra minutes off of work is lazy and stupid. If they don't like the work get out. Don't blame the military for there stupidity. If you want to comment on my wifes blog and talk shit you need to man or woman up and let yourself be known.If you are not happy that you are not being backed up here then too bad. Don't read this blog. That is the only free will you have. You have not earned you free will. Until you have sacrificed like so many of these women have you have no freedoms. You only have what these women and people like myself allow you to have don't forget that.
