Don't know that we should feel so smug - we're headed down the very same path.

I really do not like Subway.  I just wish there was something else closer to work that was fast and at least somewhat healthy.

There is. You got a fridge. Walk past it every morning while you try to wake up. Make a sandwich and take it with you.

Hagel Reviews Hair Regs Seen as Racially Biased

Apr 30, 2014 | by Richard Sisk


Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel ordered a servicewide review Tuesday that was likely to scrap parts of new regulations on hair and grooming that drew fire from African-American military women and the Congressional Black Caucus.

On Hagel's directive, the services will have 30 days to "revise any offensive language" in the new regulations and another 90 days "to make whatever appropriate adjustments to DoD policy as necessary," said Rear Adm. John Kirby, the Pentagon's chief spokesman.

The Army's regulation appeared to ban several hairstyles, including twists, dreadlocks and large cornrows that are popular with many African-American women.

Are they bleep stupid, or what?

You don't have long hair in combat. Full stop, end of story. Why give someone a handle? Or why have hair that, when is sheds, jammed weapons?

He's right.
You Brits are doomed.
And it's you own fault.
The only question now is, how much time until it's Sharia law over there?

If they take away my turkey/ham sub, I ain't goin' back there............ever.   :smokin:




(Not that I go much anyway.  But it works well while traveling to have a sandwich that you don't have to eat immediately).
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

The point being that if your turkey/ham can be taken from you there, they can be taken from you everywhere.

True enough.

We're in very dangerous territory here.  Even though this is in England, we're not that far from the possibility here.

Can anyone imagine, even a few short years ago, that this would be a concern?

Where is our country?

That's it, that's the final straw, taking my ham and turkey. Next thing you know it will be my bacon cheeseburger.
Man CANNOT live without bacon.

Now there speaks the voice of experience!  :laugh:

I always preferred about a half inch cut - back when I actually had hair! Short enough to be easily cleaned with minimal water and provide no grip, long enough to provide some padding under the damned helmet. Don't know about your gear, but our helmets are as uncomfortable as hell.

jeez man, what part of it was not uncomfortable. 'uncomfortable' doesn't even come close to what I went through.
 
But, back on topic. Subway can take all the ham and bacon out of all of their stores in America. That would be fine with me. Of couse, they will be out of business within a month, but if that is what they want to do, they are welcome to it. There is a subway, a dominos, a burger king, a taco bell, a local Italian place, and on and on, within a mile of where I live. If subway wants to become Kosher, or Hallal, or Hindu, or whatever, it matters not to me.
 
I will just go somewhere else. People often reap the fruits of their stupidity.

Oh - I don't know. Traded an unopened bottle of vodka for two of your night camo pattern jackets - the ones with the IR absorbing dye? They are comfortable as hell!

But on topic - I agree. If Subway has a market for their decision, they'll thrive. Otherwise, they'll fold. I'll bet on fold - pretty much every corner shop and cafe here does a roaring trade in bacon sandwiches.

With all due respect - never call me drunk. Ever. I am 4 1/2 years sober and some days it is hard enough to keep going without that added stress.
