I wonder if the early libertarians said something like that about the VRA. ("Wonderful, now blacks can vote for interventionism, too.")

They didn't exist for Truman integrating the armed forces or the Nineteenth Amendment, but I'm sure the socialists or communists stepped up, then.

I don't think it's a bad thing that guys can participate fully in military service. Being trusted to defend the tribe is an essential prerequisite of equality in human societies.

And a rescue chopper is among the least objectionable things a military can have.

I guess it's just disappointing that one of the major hallmarks of progress in America is the inclusivity of our vast war machine. Like, I wish it weren't big enough to be so important.

I saw the Taylor Swift 'challenge' on Twitter and considered posting "Think of a number greater than 3. That's right, you can't."

Consider that shit stolen. It describes a whole genre of tweets that, 99% of the time, are about Taylor Swift.

The replies to the original tweet are basically blowing up with everyone's favorite handful of larger numbers. Dark Side of the Moon seems to be the most commonly cited example, for obvious reasons, but there are a lot of neat selections.

That is a very solid burn.

Iconic I mean whipped cream and other delights kinda wins out with Sgt pepper being up there as well. Its a fairly dead art form at this point which is too bad but such is life.
