(Priorities) Hurricane-Relief Guardsmen Tossed Out of Armory - for Victoria's Secret Show

Hurricane-relief Guardsmen tossed out of armory - for Victoria's Secret show

The Victoria’s Secret show must go on — even if it means kicking out hardworking men and women in uniform.

Dozens of National Guardsmen, and Army and Air Force personnel who have been sleeping at Manhattan’s Lexington Armory in between hurricane-relief shifts are being booted — to make room for Victoria’s Secret models in anticipation of Wednesday’s runway show.

About 300 uniformed personnel have been bunking down at the armory at various times since Sandy hit.

But their numbers will be reduced to 60 by Wednesday for the event, which is featuring Rihanna and Justin Bieber.

The military workers will be relocated to the Jacob Javits Center, Harlem Armory and hotels such as the Marriott East Side and Ramada East Side — where they’ll bunk five to 10 per room on the government’s dime, sources said.

“It’s going to be tight. It’s not ideal,’’ said one Air National Guardsman.

Last night, about 150 of the personnel were crammed into a space meant for 50 as Victora’s Secret workers moved in equipment and set up temporary dressing rooms.

A massive transformer generator was being brought in for the show, and a huge Sony video board was hauled to the site.

The military workers will be allowed to return to their armory digs on Thursday.

Well, then. Tooties and feathers surpass people who need water and shelter. Sounds like a Democrat decision to me.

I, for one, would have been glad to share a cot with any of those girls. That’s just the kind of sharing guy I am. I’d have even given them a class on Call For Fire. They’d have been yelling “Fire For Effect!” all night long. Hey, a guy can dream. It’s still a free country.

Yeah. Thanks, DogByte, for contributing to the delinquency of our nation. </s>

That’s really too bad.

Yes, I’m a soft-core porn opponent, so let the “conservative” derision against me begin...

Sara’s Mom, would that these poor sluts were ONLY half-naked, instead of the 95% naked that we see, thanks to DogByte’s gratuitous photograph postings.

It’s not uncommon for the military to rent out facilities for various purposes. Happens quite a bit here, usually for charity fundraisers.

The NY Armories belong to Cuomo the Governor.

Democrat/Marxists priorities in action !

Almost everywhere NG armorys are rented out for events when not in use for drills or camps to finance the armory's maintenance. Some pay for themselves.

Instead of putting out the Natl Guard...how about seeing if the Victoria Secret models are willing to put out

Mrs. blueunicorn6 saw these photos and asked what I was looking at on the computer. I told her it was an article about some poor homeless girls in New York. She said it was probably too cool for girls in New York to wear skimpy outfits like that. I said that they were good girls and had given people the shirts off their backs. She hit me with her slipper.

A blind man was walking with his son by the fish market. He sniffs and says, “ah, we must be at the armory”.

“Since when does an ARMORY get used for something LIKE THIS? “

This is nothing new.

NY State has rented out its armories for many many years.

And those rentals have been given priority over military use for as long as I can remember.

I can recall a number of occasions in my Guard days when we were booted out of “our” armories for some antique or dog show, or whatever.

This shows where the NY State Government’s priorities are.

Just to be perfectly clear, I do NOT call these models “sluts”.

My concern is the allocation of scarse resources for disaster support crews.

I personally was very proud, both as a woman and as a citizen of the USA, when the beautifull Victoria Secrets models show was televised shortly after 91101.
Yeah, it was a racy lingere commercial, but it also had angel wings and definite pro-USA attitude!
Since I live in Florida, I am used to seeing lots of young men and women in skimpy clothes.

IMHO, it beats the hell out of seeing anyone in a burka!

The 9-11-01 VS show combined “angel” wings with soft porn imagery? Oh, okay.

I weep for the mind and spirit of our lost country.

Weep all you want!
Gnash your teeth and rend your hair.
What next will you do?
Strap on a bomb and blow yourself up in a public place filled with strangers to “save” your neighbors from sin?

You point out inane material things, and pretend they are equal to that which is spiritual.

You already outed yourself as intellectually and spiritually inferior.

I seriously doubt you are of my “country” or one of my patriotic citizen neighbors.

I don’t know what your problem is, but judging by your bizarre, hostile and ignorant rant, it appears to be a serious one. That’s really too bad.

WXRGina, my “problem” with you is that I consider you bizarre, hostile,ingorant,and also stupid.
Yet another useless, unserious troll...

But have a nice day! (IBTZ)

Sara’s Mom, I’m sorry I first spoke to you on this thread. I mistook you for a rational person. My mistake, which I will not make again. You are behaving as a troll, not me, as any sane person could see looking back on our comments. Don’t bother with your silly IBTZ—I will not be zotted, chickie.

Maybe you should calm down and remember what today brought with the cementing of communist power in our nation, instead of harping on some retarded soft porn quest you set out on.
