  1. Okay, she understandably tried to hide her military service, but did we really need to know the gory details? She was a great actress and humanitarian who continues to do much good even after death.

  2. Congratulations on once again helping drive the Daily Mail's page views (and their ad profits...their website has been doing very well) by linking to one of their stories when there are plenty of other sources (not least the BBC) for the same information. Would you link to Fox News first with the same enthusiasm? If not, why not?

  3. Wow, I already knew that Bea Arthur was a bad-ass, but this is amazing.

    BTW, the comments following the smokinggun post absolutely floor me. How their minds work that anyone would twist this against her is just beyond me.

  4. She 'understandably' tried to hide her military career? WTF? Would you or she have preferred the Nazis and Imperial Japan to have won that war? Who do you think beat them into submission?

    Camilla: 'Shoo! Shoo I say! Filthy commoners! Away with you! Charles, do something!'

    Security guard: 'I say my good man, if you don't stop attacking their royal highnesses I shall be forced to release the safety catch on my gun. Right, there's a good chap.

  5. How very strange that Bea Arthur "Oh, no" about the Marines thing. That's apparently where she met Mr. Arthur! Did she mis-hear the question?

  6. In the voice of Chris Crocker: "LEAVE BEA ARTHUR ALONE!" LOL

    She is a class act no matter what, I just lover her. I think it is great she served!

  7. On Mixner: agreed...if they're going to give away the entire tax cut in some fiasco of a "compromise", the entire remainder of the Dem majority's lame duck agenda should be attached right to it. DADT, Dream Act, etc., as the price for their precious millionaire tax cut. I won't hold my breath for this outcome, however, since Democrats are such tragic wimps.

    On Beck: Dude, white people LIKE YOU are toast. Bigots who base their lives on a sick and twisted, hate-based perversion of Christianity are toast, and we shall be celebrating your dwindling numbers. Those of us white people who don't operate out of a fear of "other" people, understand diversity is strength, and might even speak another language or two...well, we will be doing just fine in the future, thank you very much. You just keep on whining about your perceived oppression...I will be laughing at you, or rather, Jon Stewart's dead-on impression of you.

  8. @ SO LEFT I'M RIGHT:

    ...I wish people like you would have equal venom for non-white racists, haters, and bigots.

    ...I wish people like you would acknowledge it's possible for a white person to be victimized by bigotry, hate and racism because they're white. In fact, it's common.

    ...I wish people like you would also acknowledge 'white' is not synonymous with privilege, power, wealth.

    ...I wish people like you would acknowledge that, in fact, socio-economics plays a far greater role in our society than race, ethnicity, creed, gender, or even sexual orientation.

    But of course, it's a lot easier to blame everything on non-far left whites. Especially sense a good chunk of the white far left come from socio-economically privileged backgrounds. That's the left's achilles heal, they've demonized ALL non-ass kissing, non far left whites, especially white males, as evil. If you're a white guy, as long as you are meek, keep your head down, allow yourself to be lectured about how bad you are, accept the hard party line unquestioningly, you can hang around and be semi-accepted.

  9. Since he was responding to a statement by a bigoted white guy, who consistently plays upon the irrational fears of others, why exactly would he be addressing those of other races who are just like him? Seriously, get a grip.

  10. @ LIAMB:

    ...The first sentence of my offending previous post says it all:

    'I wish people like you would have EQUAL venom for non-white racists, haters, and bigots.'

    ...I'm tired of the usual suspects on here who use gay rights and the so-called gay agenda as a trojan horse to push far left, racist, bigoted, anti-white, anti-male PC shit. And my point was leftist [especially] love to point out every real or perceived white hate and racism, but rarely give equal time and condemnation to non-white hate,racism and bigotry.

  11. Did anyone actually read the linked article? It claims she was treated for a venereal disease. That is the reason she didn't want it uncovered.

  12. I found this clip of Miss Arthur's final interview with Bea discussing her career and life in her own words. I think it’s for a show called, “Lunching with a Legend.”

    I'd hate for a full interview with Bea or the other legendary ladies in the clip to go unseen. I'd like to see if she final discusses her service in her final interview.
