She may look clean – BUT!

While home for break, my roommate and I discovered this little gem on board the U.S.S. Texas, advising sailors to look out for disease ridden “good-time” girls.

It seems venereal disease was quite the problem for our lads at sea, requiring all sailors to visit the so-called “pro room” both before and after shore leave. Additionally, several of the 28 toilets for 1600 crew members had red seats for those seamen afflicted with STIs. Precious.

OH COME ON GUYS.

Look, I have no problem with Republicans. I mean, I do, but no more than I do with Democrats. And I recognize that there are a lot of problems with this health care bill–although probably not the same things the Republicans are being grumpy about. And I realize a lot of the reaction to the bill (like this and this) is not necessarily coming from terrible “Republicans” and more from terrible “Human Beings”.  And I also as a matter of principle prefer not to post articles from the Huffington Post, just because it’s far from an unbiased news source and I often find it irritating. That said:
