    After getting hit with 35 years, Manning writes in a letter that he's been a female since childhood and wants to the conversion to begin ASAP. Cue Saturday Night Live sketches for the next 5 years.

    I say, if they won't execute him for being a traitor, why would we pay the bill for his hormone therapy or sex change? The next best punishment: Let the little S. O. B. stay a man until his sentence is up. His request just adds stupidity to the situation.

    And I guess the traitor expects us to pay for it too?

    Yeah, but the Army already said no.

    Lawyer said he'll keep fighting for it though.

    Gee, I guess that's no surprise. I hope this is one case where the Army is "Army Strong" in denying his request they pay for it.

    This is like throwing Br'er Rabbit into the brier patch.

    Get a better wig and she'd be kinda cute.

    I'm glad they threw the book at Chelsea. Coming in at the last second to steal Willian away right as Spurs had him in for his medical. Now it screws up the Bale transfer. Damn Chelsea.
     
  12. Traitors give information to the enemy to help them kill Americans.

    Whistle-blowers bring wrongdoing to light. Once upon time, they were even considered heroes -- not locked away in solitary confinement.
