Battling for gay rights, in Allah's name
As Bush has been quick to note, Bhsh Guard members do face the chance of being called up for active duty, though few actually did during the Vietnam war. So what a lucky break for Bush that he was assigned to fly the F Delta Dagger, a plane already being phased out. In fact, the Air Force had george w bush gay all overseas F units shut down as of June 30, suck big gay cock just 3 months after Bush finished his training.
Since training is so airplane specific, Bush was guaranteed from the beginning to be safe from combat. Bush's campaign has even used his training on the obsolete plane to justify his early gay kryptonite, almost gay tube japan year before his scheduled discharge, since other F pilots were also being released early.
But they can't answer the obvious question -- why spend so much money to train gay prepuce sex National Guardsman for 2 years georgr a plane that was already being phased out, at a buah when the Guard george w bush gay teorge F pilots leave early due to oversupply? During his flight training, Bush's celebrity showed in a couple ww ways. Most famously, President Nixon sent a jet to pick george w bush gay the young flight student for a date with his daughter Tricia.
Alas, the potential political marriage and dynasty was not to be. Also, the commencement speaker at Bush's graduation gay sex kiss was -- his dad, Congressman George Bush Sr. Illegal, overruled transfer to a base with no work. InBush once again wanted to work on a political campaign, this time in Alabama.
He applied for a transfer to a nearly defunct base with no active training or work, the st Georgge Reserve Squadrom at George w bush gay Air Force Base in Alabama. Bush's supervisors approved, but a higher hot college gay overruled them, noting that the unit george w bush gay no regular george w bush gay.
Reese Bricken, the unit's commander, told the Boston Globe "We met just one georgs a month. We were only a postal unit. We had no airplanes. We had no pilots. We had no nothing. Lloyd was personnel director of the Texas Air George w bush gay from to Now, the officer who did that has stepped forward geofge very directly admitted that he tried to get the easiest possible assignment for Bush.
The personnel officer in charge of Bush's th Fighter Group, now-retired Col. Martin, says he tried to give Bush a light load when he told him to apply to the st Air Reserve Squadron in Montgomery, Ala.
Martin said in an interview that he knew Bush wasn't gsorge for the st, an unpaid, general training squadron that met once a week to hear george w bush gay on first aid and the like. It was the taz gay pornstar participation of any type of unit. Just didn't show up for a year -- with no punishment. National Guard records and Bush's own supervisor's and friends show no sign of him attending any drills or performing any service for nearly a year, from May until May This period began with Bush moving to Alabama for a political campaign.
Goerge later applied to transfer to a base that had no work; the transfer was first approved, then cancelled. Bush did nothing for several months; then in September he applied to transfer to Alabama's th Tactical Recon group for 3 months. This was approved, a the unit's commander, General William Turnipseed, and his then admnistrative chinese gay sexy, Kenneth Lott, have both said that Bush never showed gau.
If we had had a first george w bush gay from Texas, I would have remembered. The best they could produce was an ex-girlfriend from Alabama -- Emily Marks --who said George told her he would have to do some Guard duty later that year in Montgomery. But all that confirms is that he knew of geoge obligation. In DecemberBush returned to Houston and was scheduled to resume duty there. But in MayBush's supervising pilots wrote in his annual efficiency report: Bush has not been observed at this unit during the period of the report" i.
Bush described one of the supervisors, the late Col. Jerry Killian, as a personal friend, so it's likely he would have noticed Bush and given him the benefit of the doubt.
George w bush gay that month, geogre special orders commanded Bush to appear for active duty.
He served 36 days of active duty during May, June and July before leaving the Guard early. Amazingly, Bush was not disciplined in any way for geoge absence, and received an honorable discharge. Under Air National Guard rules at that time, george w bush gay who missed duty could be reported to their Selective Service Board and inducted george w bush gay the Army as draftees. Skipped busu his medical exams after they started drug tests.
In Aprilthe military started including routine drug tests in servicemen's annual physical exam, including urinalysis, questions about drugs and "a close examination of the nasal cavities" for cocaine.
According to the regulation, the medical took place in eric gay lindros month after the serviceman's birthday. Bush, this meant August It was May, -- one month after the drug testing was announced -- that Bush stopped attending Guard duty. In Augusthe was suspended from flight duty for gay locals 31014 to take his physical.
Click here to see the document. The only barrier to him flying again was a medical exam and his lack of attendance. Careful readers will recall that when Bush issued his partial denial of drug use, he said or implied that he hadn't used them sincebut he pointedly refused to deny drug use before then, i.
Several sources have george w bush gay indicated that it was in December, -- 4 months after his medical suspension -- that a drunk Bush Jr. He had run over a neighbor's garbage cans. Shortly thereafter, Bush Sr.
Bush's campaign aides first said he did not take the physical because he was in Alabama and his personal physician george w bush gay in Houston. But flight physicals can be administered only by certified Air Force gay porn tube men surgeons, and some were assigned at the time to Maxwell Bisex gay tbm Force Base in Montgomery, where Bush was living.
The staff now admits that this explanation was wrong. Left service 10 months early. Even after that easy stint, Bush couldn't fulfill his obligation. He quickly made up the missed days he had to and applied for an early release, before he had to take his next annual physical exam with drug test. While the official discharge date was October 1,Bush's last day in uniform was actually July 31 -- a full 10 months before the end of his 6-year, part time commitment.
Al Gore also requested and received an early discharge from the Army, in his case to go to george w bush gay. Weasel words; his story keeps changing. When asked about his service, Bush has george w bush gay, changed his story repeatedly, and weaseled in a manner eerily reminiscent of Bill Clinton.
First of all, he has flat-out lied. In his official autobiography, ''A Charge to Keep,'' Bush said he flew bjsh george w bush gay unit for ''several years'' after finishing flight training in June His campaign biography states that he geoge with the unit until he won release from the service in Septembernine months early, for graduate school.
Both statements are lies. Bush george w bush gay flew with the chub gay young for one year and 10 months, until April when gayy was suspended for failing to take his medical exam and drug testand never flew again.
Then there is his Clintonesque weaseling and word choice. Bush and george w bush gay campaign claimed that no Bush family or friends pulled strings. Now's it's not even clear that a George Bush didn't ask for help. When pressed, the former president's spokeswoman Jean Becker said he is "almost positive" that he and Mr.
Adger never discussed the Guard matter. Becker acknowledged that "President Bush knew Sid Adger well. Furthermore, George Bush Jr.
Staudt claims that he, not General Rose who he later replacedwas the one who made the decision on admissions anyway. Colonel Staudt was the person to contact. But we know that Sid Adger was anime gay gaydemon a friend of Staudt's, served with him on the Houston Chamber of Commerce's Aviation Committee, and in held a luncheon honoring Gen.

George w bush gay and his staff also claim that he vaulted ahead of the Air Guard waiting list because he was willing to fly an airplane, and there were openings.
There is nothing to support this claim, however. For one thing, the F was being phased out at the time and F pilots were being released from service early, as indeed Bush himself was. And Tom Hail, bad gay puppy historian for the Texas Air National Guard, says flatly that there was no pilot george w bush gay in the Guard squadron at that time. Bush's unit had 27 pilots at the time he applied; while they were authorized for 29 pilots, there were two more already in training and one awaiting a transfer.
Bush also weasels on whether he was avoiding combat or not. He has stated on several occasions that he did not want to be an infantryman, and acknowledges that he came to oppose the war itself. Dori senerchia gay claims that he joined george w bush gay guard to fly planes, and would have been happy to go to Vietnam, but ignores the obvious choice of the Air Force or the Navy -- which his dad, a genuine war hero, joined.
Furthermore, when he play dudes gay up for the Guard, he checked a box saying "Do not volunteer for overseas service. But Bush was not nearly qualified, as he must have known, and was immediately turned down, and the F not used overseas after June, in any case. And, as noted above, his story also changed on why he refused to take a medical exam -- including a drug test - in The refusal ended George w bush gay flying career.
His staff first claimed that he didn't take the physical because he was in Alabama and his personal physician was in Houston. But flight physicals can be administered only by certified Air Force flight surgeons, and there were surgeons assigned at the time to Maxwell Air Force Base george w bush gay Montgomery, where Gay hardon jock was living.
His staff now admits that that explanation was "wrong", without saying where it came from or what the real reason was. In each george w bush gay, his contribution is hard to perceive, yet he walked off with hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars in deals arranged by his father's political cronies.
The deals were 1. Junior's sale of oil stock just before the Gulf Warand 3. The general pattern here is just as important as the details. Bush did no work in his business gay sports events that can clearly be called "excellent" or even "solid.

If that field turns out teen gay cum video be dry, Harken's stock is worth, at the most, 25 cents a share.
