I would think that was part of the job

The Chair Force blocks weapons related websites?

    I find it interesting when “the good guys” call a branch of our military less than stellar names. Yes I service eight years in the chair force, I guess we can’t all be (insert fav branch/team/Special forces here) and yeah it’s a dumb rule, but I doubt there is a conspiracy it’s just the default setting for most website blocking software like websense…it was the same at my workplace…until I changed it.

    Dude, it’s a joke.

    hahah chair force.

    I work for the Army and have the same problem whenever the nannyware gets reset after an update. We’d submit a help desk ticket and get it fixed. I think local IT has finally caught on because it hasn’t happened for a while. Still can’t do any of the Blogger backend though.

    Had my morning Mt. Dew I’m feeling better…and yes I was sitting in my chair.

    As a member of the chair force, I am not surprised. It was probably distracting people from their work. Think about it, who would really want to go to the Brady campaign website anyways? I give my navy and army friends a hard time too. Our chairs are probably the nicest out of all of the branches anyways! 😀

    To be fair, the Air Force does most of its fighting sitting in chairs.

    And those chairs have some largely unremarkable ancillary equipment attached to them to make them go very fast through the sky, raining death upon our enemies and sundering their edifices.

    SayUncle, can I tell Randy the joke about the various services being told to “secure a building” ?

    I know several people on AF shooting teams, at several different installations, and none of them report this problem. Now, who can explain that?

    The first person I ever heard call it the “Chair Force” was my buddy from HS who was in the USAF when I was in the USMC. His said that was the name of his branch and his primary job. I said “Well, then I’m in the United States Stand-The-Fuck-Around-And-Wait Corps”.

    Website filtering software is a fascistic joke, and should be illegal. When they put it on my high school computers, I was no longer allowed to access web pages that were related to guns exclusively, but I was able to find web pages that had book downloads, such as the Black Magic Cookbook and the Anarchist Cook Book and the Poor Man’s James Bond. Those taught me how to make bombs. Thanks filter software! I wouldn’t have bothered to look if I could have just viewed a few blogs. Also, you can usually access web pages that aren’t exclusively gun-oriented, such as wikipedia and Popular Mechanics for the occasional gun articles.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
