Memorial Day: It’s About Those Who Died in Military Service

Memorial Day-collage (Robz Edit)
It’s Memorial Day.
As a retired U.S. Navy veteran, I don’t much like hearing people say “Happy Memorial Day”. I avoid saying those words, choosing instead the greeting, “Have a GOOD Memorial Day”. If you think about it you may come to understand why I prefer to use the latter rather than the former.  That first greeting is so often and casually used by the media and by people who say such things to each other (and to me) without thinking. There is often confusion between the meaning of Memorial Day and Veterans Day where there should not be. Many people – particularly those who never served in the military or who didn’t know someone who did serve or who never lost a loved one or friend in military service, simply don’t have an understanding of the true meaning of the Memorial Day holiday. Still, I and many of my fellow veterans appreciate the thought and the sentimental greeting and don’t make it a big deal when people say to us, “Thank you for your service.” We know people mean well. Some of us simply remind them that Memorial Day is actually for those men and women who died while in military service.

Sadly however, many other people have a certain amount of ignorance or worse, a form of disrespect for Memorial Day (and Veterans Day) and just don’t give a damn. Those particular people (some whose comments I’ve encountered on Facebook) tend to think of this day as “national BBQ day” and/or ignore the meaning of Memorial Day completely. They attack or speak ill of both my deceased and living brothers and sisters in uniform. They try to write comments or verbally attack anyone who chooses to put on a military uniform, who willingly subjects him or herself to the authority ofPresident Barack Obama on Memorial Day 2014 some elected or political-appointed civilian and/or and higher military ranking as being war mongers, “baby killers” (yes, that old anti-war term is still being used) and destroyers of lands and the way of life of other nations and cultures. They also say that anyone who would intentionally put their lives at risk for capture or death in some foreign ocean, land or air space while serving in the military deserves their fate. There are some very nasty people out there and it’s sad that so many are on social media. People with that mindset probably ask of themselves – and I know they’ve rhetorically have ask others, “Why should they give a fuck about what Memorial Day is, let alone bother to give recognition to people who wage war?” I shake my head at these people for therein lays one of the first signs of ignorance. You see, admirals and generals – and the men and women who take orders from them, do not wage or start wars; they fight them. Only CIVILIANS wage war.
Allow me to digress.

You know, the very reason people can ignore Memorial Day and have their “national BBQ day” in the first place is due to the efforts and ultimate sacrifices of this country’s brave men and women in military service. The military in many ways is indeed a society and an environment unlike no other. However, some aspects of the military job are awfully shitty. Let me repeat: some aspects of the military job are awfully shitty. Somebody goddamnit, has to got to do that job! Often that means the military service person has to go in harm’s way and take in some burning bullets or fiery explosions from some fired, thrown, dropped or hidden grenade or bomb. People who feel so damn strongly against the military ought not to attack those Soldiers, Airmen, Sailors, Marines, Coast Guardsmen or Reservists who put their lives on the line nor should they disrespect any date on the calendar designated to give remembrance and honor to those servicemen. Instead such people ought to use their First Amendment right to free speech and the rights and privileges they have as Americans to communicate their concerns and objections to their elected leaders; rights and privileges – which by the way, were protected by thousands of servicemen and women who are now deceased – and the very same rights and privileges which continue being protected daily by many living military personnel on military bases, ships and joint foreign command posts all over the world.
US Armed Forces-logos

As I said, many people tend to do certain things out of ignorance. Am I bias towards the side of the military because I served in the military? You goddamn right I am! I will call to task any person who shows and/or expresses disrespect for those men and women in our armed forces who have served and died in honorable service to our country! I will call to task any person who shows and/or expresses disrespect for those who are now serving honorably!

**For my hearing impaired readers, here is the clip transcript that starts at point 0:40 with the camera on Nicholson.
The part of the movie speech I like and which I want you to pay attention, is in bold.
A Few Good Men (written by Aaron Sorkin)
Jessep: (Jack Nicholson) You want answers?
Kaffee (Tom Cruise): I think I’m entitled to them.
Jessep: You want answers?
Kaffee: I want the truth!
Jessep: You can’t handle the truth! Son, we live in a world that has walls. And those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Who’s gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinberg? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago and you curse the Marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know: that Santiago’s death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives…You don’t want the truth. Because deep down, in places you don’t talk about at parties, you want me on that wall. You need me on that wall. 
We use words like honor, code, loyalty…we use these words as the backbone to a life spent defending something. You use ’em as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom I provide, then questions the manner in which I provide it! I’d rather you just said thank you and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon and stand a post. Either way, I don’t give a damn what you think you’re entitled to!
Kaffee: Did you order the code red?
Jessep: (quietly) I did the job you sent me to do.
Kaffee: Did you order the code red?
Jessep: You’re goddamn right I did!!
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
When I saw that movie upon its release some twenty-two years ago, me and every military person in the theater shouted in unison praise! It was wonderful! You just had to be there!
ANYWAY…

Anyone who appreciates their American freedoms usually knows and understands what it took – and what it takes to keep much of what is and has been happening over there (in some foreign country) from coming over here to American shores. They understand that freedom, while taken for granted by so many in the United States, is indeed not free – and is an expression that is more than some easy cliché. One does not have to be a veteran or someone serving on active duty in order to be supportive of our men and women in the military who now protect and who have once protected that freedom. They simply need to know and be thankful that someone is always on the front line as they sleep at night!

21 Gun SaluteDuring my military service, I’ve participated in my share of military burial details – both on land and at sea. I’ve done the full military honors thing that included being in full military dress, giving the 21-gun salute, folding of our nation’s flag, carrying the coffin to a burial site or committing the body or the ashes of the deceased serviceman’s body at sea and I’ve endured the playing of Taps afterwards. Each and every one of the ceremonies in which I’ve participated, while beautiful in performance – and which I was honored to have been a participant for that fallen Sailor or Marine, is still ominous and sad.

Burial at SeaI will always know the history of – and recognize and respect the sacrifices of the thousands of men and women who served in our military long before me, during my period in service and the period after. As a veteran, I too have lived through periods of loss of brother Sailors and Marines during my years of service. I’ve either known personally or were once acquainted (since we served in the same command) with some guys who lost or gave their lives in the honored service of America. May those men continue to rest in peace.

At this writing, I’m remembering a few incidents during my twenty-year career span in the U.S. Navy where servicemen gave/lost their lives:

  • the U.S. Marines, Sailors, and Soldiers who, with other friendly foreign military servicemen, lost their lives when the barracks in Beirut, Lebanon was bombed October 23,1983. Some 241 lives were lost;
  • the 37 lives were loss on board the USS Stark (FFG-35) on May 17, 1987. I commissioned and had served on two ships built of the same design as the Oliver Hazard Perry class/type guided-missile fast frigate Stark. I’m therefore intimately familiar with the location on the 453-foot ship where two Iraqi Exocet missiles, fired from an Iraq Air Force jet, struck her. That was during the Iran-Iraq war…what many like to refer to as the First Persian Gulf War (1980-1988). The Stark incident touched me deeply and personally. Perhaps someday I’ll tell that story.
  • the 47 Sailors who died from a gun turret explosion on board the great battleship USS_Iowa_BB61_broadside_USNUSS Iowa (BB-61) in 1989. Though she was not attacked by an enemy there were still innocent lives which were needlessly lost on Iowa because of a mixture of carelessness and other factors I won’t dare get into in this article. However, it needs to be noted that there simply are things that cannot be loosely tolerated, short-changed or – to use a Navy term for slacking off, “gundecked” on any warship – for  the crew on any warship must first and foremost always prepare and ready that ship to rely on itself for support when at sea until help – if needed,  arrives.
    …and a year after my retirement from the Navy…
  •  the 17 men who died on the destroyer ship USS Cole (DDG-67) when Al-Qaeda suicide terrorists bombed her in Yemen – specifically in the seaport of Aden in October 2000. I recall my ship USS Nashville (LPD-13) having moored there years earlier during Operation Desert Storm, which is one reason that incident – in that area, means something to me.

I could go on with more stories regarding the sacrifice of the American military serviceman which occurred during my career and shortly after I retired, and of course, about the thousands of American military lives lost in Iraq, Afghanistan and other regions before and after 9/11 but these few instances will do for the purpose of this article. I encourage you to click on the links of each to read or refresh yourself of the history regarding those examples of great military sacrifice.

Let me close with this reminder about Memorial Day:
Memorial Day is not to be confused with Veterans Day which is in November. Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while in military service to our nation, while Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans in wartime and peacetimeWhile I and many of my fellow veterans appreciate people giving me/us thanks for my/our military service, I must tell you that such greeting and salutations is [officially] about six months early. Don’t get me wrong; we understand your well-meaning but the focus on Memorial Day needs to be on those military servicemen and women who died in battle, from battle wounds and even those veterans who later passed on to the next life years after their honored service.

Since it is Memorial Day, here’s another reason it’s important to observe the day this year! July 2014 will mark the 100th anniversary of World War I. Click World War I Centennial Commemoration to learn more about events happening in the U.S. to commemorate this point in our country’s history that lead up to America’s entry into what was called,“The Great War”. Click First World War Centenary to learn of other events happening around the world to commemorate the occasion. Many considered World War I to be the war to end all wars“, a catch-phase created after author H.G. Wells’ book with a similar name was published shortly after WWI started. You may begin seeing and/or hearing media ads and promotions about the centennial of World War I.

If you happen to see a military serviceman/woman in uniform on the street or know a veteran, by all means, please express your appreciation for what they do. Such genuine, impromptu greetings often make that servicemen’s or veteran’s day. Trust me! Stop by a military or veterans memorial cemetery or park and look at read the engraved names of our deceased brave military service men and women on markers in the ground. Take your children with you!

Finally, remember that America –with all her problems, is still the land of the free. Let’s not forget there are thousands of nefarious people who plot everyday to take away our freedoms and change and/or destroy our way of life! With that in mind, I’m aware that there are many people who have stated repeatedly that they would like to move out of this country due to their distaste in current political leadership, intolerance with certain social issues, conflicts with religion regarding those social issues and a host of other issues which are things which any free republic has to endure. Meanwhile, hundreds of people all over the world are trying to move to this country. People want to live in a place where they can be free to be who they are and where they can [legally] express themselves without fear of retribution. America seems to be that place – to some extent, more than any other country on the globe. If you’ve never visited or never had an extended stay in another country there is little doubt that you will ever truly appreciate nor completely understand the many freedoms we enjoy and often take for granted here in the United States – even though we still have a very long way to go with regard to issues of equality covering race, gender and sexual orientation, just to name a few.

America is a free nation because of the sacrifices of thousands of brave men and women in military uniform and those in that particular sub-culture who died protecting that OUR freedom. Remember that… and again, be sure to teach your children!

Have a good Memorial Day!

Keepin’ It…REAL!

Keepin’ It Real About…ANY New Year!

Life's issues and 2014

While many of you are talking smack about “putting 2013 [shit] behind you”, Some of us are – and will STILL be – carrying 2013 shit into year 2014! Some of us are still dealing with 2013 – and perhaps the same shit from the year – or years before, up to and including the very last fuckin’ day and hour of the current goddamn year. So fuck you and your sense of a positive outlook for 2014! Now, don’t get me wrong; it’s all well and good that you have such sweet expectations for the new year; fuck, nearly everyone seems to catch that new year fever – each and Christmas/X-Mas holiday season. That new year fever reaches its peak in the waning days of each December. To that, I say; Keep those damn new year germs to yourself!

RobFather-X (15)You see, the rest of us more reality type folks will still have to continue to take one muthafuckin’ day at a time in dealing with our respective issues/problems and concerns – regardless of the change in the number of the year. We can only do what we can – as we can and are realistically able, to find and/or create certain satisfactions or achieve that sense of relief to our respective issues and problems. If you think this message is negative, you’re free to take it as such. If you are a regular reader of this blog then you already know that I don’t give a flyin’ fuck whether anyone thinks I’m being positive or negative in the content of anything I write here. In America, everyone is free to write or start their own blog. Take it for action and good luck with that. Meanwhile, and in the here and now, many of my readers know damn well that what I’m spittin’ in this article is the truth! No matter how it may sound or appear, I speak from reality as I see it and as I know it to be. While I can certainly tell a good story, when it comes to the real world, I tend to save fantasy for the non-fiction, comic book and science fiction writers! Most readers of this article fully understand what I’m saying and won’t take my words as being negative or positive because they know that it is all a matter of personal perception.

There are people – good people, Depressed man sitting-3who will be carrying their issues/problems and concerns of the year 2013 – and those from the year before or of past years, well into year 2014. Such problems do not magically go away with some damn “New Year’s resolution!” There are people who still have to deal with a host of shit come January and well into – if not beyond, year 2014. We cannot ignore the fact that someone, perhaps a neighbor or someone close to us, just might be recovering from, putting the final closure on or perhaps finally accepting things such as: a breakup in a long-term relationship, a divorce, death of a loved one, loss of a home or job, a relapse with some addiction, a pending trial or incarceration – particularly for a crime they didn’t commit, or news of some dreadful, awful disease they contracted or which has begun to manifest itself. You just never know what a person is going through! The only thing people in those situations have is hope… for a better and less painful day each and every time Depressed woman-2they wake up. However sometimes, even hope is not enough. People need more – and many of them deserve more and deserve better! Often a kind word that is written or spoken or better yet, a personal visit is all that is needed – particularly if it is done more than once a month or a few times throughout the year if possible. An offer to help – and actually helping is also always appreciated! It is enough that people have a certain sense of mental and spiritual (not religious!) strength and reassurance to keep going and a desire to keep on living as they seek to overcome each and every obstacle in their lives. It is enough that sometimes people must try hard to believe that they will survive as they try hard to not give up their fight while dealing with their problems and concerns.

While I use the word “they” in this article, I am in fact, speaking of each of US! Each one of US has issues/problems and concerns. We might hide them from others but we can’t hide them from ourselves or that person we see in the mirror – if we just stare long angry-black-manenough in the eyes of that reflection! Keep in mind that certain problems which may seem trivial to you may be the most important concern in the life of someone else. Do not dismiss that so easily until you have lived that particular person’s life! Do not ever tell someone how they should feel or how not to feel – particularly if you don’t know that person well or have never experienced the same problems and concerns – and have conquered them! No one has the power to simply direct or control the feelings and emotions of another person. You can however, have an affect on how one feels with certain words you use, in how you use such words, in the tone of your voice and/or with your body language. Do not ever tell someone who shares a problem with you to “man up”, “woman up” or to “get over it”! That’s disrespecting who that person is as an intelligent and civilized human being; one with FEELINGS, EMOTIONS and a CONSCIENCE. You don’t get the right to say such things. As I just mentioned, unless you know that person very well …or have some intention of losing a friend and/or possibly making an enemy, I suggest taking good care in what and how you say certain things where that person is concerned! Personally, if anyone were to say those sorts of things to me, they’d lose a friend and gain an enemy in less than a heartbeat!

With that said, I will further add that you save your empty “I’ll pray for you” bullshit and other weak-ass, do-nothing sentiments. They don’t do a damn thing to help or console anyone, especially the “I’ll pray for you” sentiment. In my view, prayers are just another nude man praying-3 2014way of thinking to one’s self the things one would say to some supreme being believed to have power to change or help that person’s situation or which that person would like see happen towards the dismay of someone else.
Click Praying for 2014 – Not! to read the article that explains my feelings about prayer.

Speaking for those of US who are dealing with issues and matters that hit us this year, and/or which were carried over from last year (2012) and perhaps years prior, I say…don’t be so quick to give thoughtless empty sentiments and offers to pray for someone unless you are prepared to back up or support such sentimental word up with some meaningful and tangible action and unless you are…

  • willing to give us a decent paying job – one withunemployment-usa benefits and affordable medical, dental and vision care;
  • willing to come to our homes and care for our  kids overnight – while we go work some six to eight-hour overnight shift at some part-time job that pays next to nothing;
  • willing to give, not loan us the money needed to help payour rent or mortgage or perhaps a utility bill for the month;
  • willing to loan us that working second or third car – that’s just sitting unused in your garage so that we don’t have to stand in the cold and wetness of winter waiting to catch a bus to get to work and back home;
  • willing to help pay for our bills to creditors past-due-bills2whom we once were successfully paying on our own but due to loss of job or reduction in income, we now can no longer pay;
  • willing to bring us and/or our family, a cooked meal – and to SIT and DINE with us and understand the fact that we want to be treated with dignity and respect, too! Do not merely drop a meal or a check in front of our door and walk away. While appreciated, there is little to no dignity or respect found in such “parting gifts”. And if you are as “Christian” as you say and would have people see and believe, then you’ll remember that Jesus himself dined with people considered the worse of the worse in his society. Nowhere in the biblical New Testament will you find that Jesus partied with the wealthiest people or that he dropped off some food or charity blessing and walked away.
  • Finally, stop looking down on and judging those of us who have never had a taste of the “good life” – such the homeless and destitute in your city and Homeless veterans in the U.S. scalethroughout our country and around the world. You don’t know our story. Stop looking down on and judging those of us who, once a upon a time, DID have a means to live a reasonably comfortable life, obey the law, paid our taxes and who were once content financially until now – due to hardships – such as an unexpected layoffs or loss of a job, an unexpected change in personal or family member’s health/medical situation or in our familyHomeless people camp functioning. Whether our situation is temporary or permanent, the fact is, as of RIGHT NOW, we can no longer have and enjoy the life in which many of you reading this tend to take for granted. Try to remember that while most of us wouldn’t wish our respective plight upon our worst enemy, our situation could very well happen to YOU someday. Count your blessings, quit bitching about and over bullshit matters, then count your blessings again!!

Keep all of this in mind as each of you prepare to party out year 2013. Keep all of this in mind as you make those empty resolutions and tell yourself – and a host of other nosy people who just want to know your business but couldn’t care less about what you do with your life – the many lies on what it is you “resolve to do” in year 2014. However, since many of you have already made new year’s resolutions – with a “promise” to yourself to “stick to it this time”, then you won’t mind some advice on how to succeed in keeping those resolutions. Here it is:
The BEST way to begin or take on any new venture, at any given time – not just at the start of some new year, is to start or take that venture a small bit at a time. No man can easily and instantly stick a dry dick into a dry pussy. Lubrication, time and a little patience has to be applied or the entire effort and the first, second or third attempt will be a fuckin’ waste of your time – which usually results in you wanting to give up that particular venture!

In addition to hoping that each of our respective personal issues get resolved quickly, efficiently and effectively, my only other desire for 2014 is that we each continue to have and maintain good health and a sense of humor about certain things in this life; and that we each get to meet more loyal, honest, respectable, non-judgmental, kind, caring, loving and “down-to-earth” people; and that we each are willing and able to dump or avoid all the fake, fickle and fraudulent people who plague our lives. Only then – and each day that follows in which we are blessed to live, will we have a sense that life for each of us will get better, be more meaningful and happier as we get older.
See? That’s not asking for much!
Have a safe, sexy, healthy and happy fuckin’ 2014!

Keepin’ it…REAL!Happy-New-Year-2014

President Obama, Our Flag and Nelson Mandela

U.S. Flag at half-staff in Remembrance of Nelson MandelaIt helps to know the history of your country, the rules and etiquette of your nation’s flag and the authority your nation’s leader has regarding the nation’s flag.
If you haven’t already, keep reading the internet web and/or listening to the news and social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter. There you’ll see, read and/or hear trending stories of people and pundits making a fuss over President Barack Obama’s order to lower our nation’s flag to half-staff in memory of former South African president Nelson Mandela who passed away Thursday, December 5,Barack Obama 2013. Click Nelson Mandela: A Timeline to read my post and get a quick view of his life. On that date, President Obama issued a presidential proclamation ordering our flags to be lowered to half-staff until sunset Monday, December 9, 2013. Click Presidential Proclamation – Death of Nelson Mandela to read the proclamation. There is one particular story trending where a sheriff in South Carolina is defying the president’s flags at half-staff order in his department. Read that story here. NOTE: There is no legal penalty for defying the presidential order.

Some people are saying that lowering our flag for foreign leaders is not customary – which would be true to some extent if American history of the past forty-eight years didn’t suggest otherwise. Others are saying that since Mandela was not an American citizen then President Obama is/was wrong to order that the flag of the United States be lowered in his honor. And, as has so often been the case where half-staff-flags2Barack Obama is concerned, there are those people who are jumping on the ever-moving and ever-growing Obama-hate bandwagon to add their own senseless criticism of our president against something which they know little to nothing about. All of these people apparently refuse to check facts or do any research. As usual, I’m here to set the record straight and help quell the senseless argument(s) on this non-issue!
Here are the facts:

  1. By law, the President of the United States has the authority to order the U.S. flag flown at half-staff upon the death of a foreign dignitary. Click to read the U.S. Code regarding the Flag of the United States.
  2. The rare or customary practice (these terms are debatable so take your pick) – if we are to judge American history on this issue, was most notably first put into place by:
    • President Lyndon B. Johnson – upon the death of England’s former Prime Minister Winston Churchill in 1965 
      followed by
    • President Ronald Reagan – upon the death of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat in 1981
    • President Bill Clinton – upon the deaths of Israel Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin in 1995 and of Jordan’s King Hussein bin Talal in 1999
      and
    • President George W. Bush – upon the death of Pope Paul II in 2005.

    Keep in mind that by the United States lowering its national flag for our friendly yet deceased foreign dignitaries in these situations, we show Nelson Mandela 1918-2013solidarity and respect as a nation to our allies. President Obama is/was legally and morally correct in his action in giving the order to have our nation’s flags lowered to half-staff in memory and respect of the late Nelson Mandela.

    Now, how do I know all of this? Simple. Not only did I live in all of those moments just mentioned, I also spent twenty years in the Navy and had lots of burial detail duty. I recall quite a bit about flag etiquette. I also did my homework and rechecked my dates to make sure my memory of these facts was accurate. I encourage each of you to do the same.
    *******************************************************************************
    ** And now, this quick semi-related “NTK” (nice-to-know) info **
    Perhaps you’ve heard the terms half-staff and half-mast used interchangeably and wondered which term was correct.
    Here’s all you need to know:
    In American English, a flag flown halfway up its flagpole as a symbol of mourning is at half-staff  while a flag flown halfway up a ship’s mast is to signal mourning or distress and is referred to as being at half-mast.. Outside North America, half-staff is not a widely used term Flag at half-mast on ship inportand half-mast is used in reference to half-raised flags both on land and at sea. The term half-mast is also preferred in Canada for both uses, though half-staff appears more frequently there than it does outside North America.

[Most] Nude Sports? – I’ll Pass!

I don’t know of any people in my ethnic group who ski or snowboard. I’m sure some Black people do these sports but I’ve never seen any video of it. If there are Black people who ski or snowboard I doubt they would do it in the nude. If readers of this blog has such a video or link showing a BLACK person doing ANY sort of sport in the nude or in the semi-nude, please…send me that link! I’d love to see it!
Now, check out this 2:37 minute video:


Ok…so this video is, in a word…AWESOME!  It’s awesome because of the BRAVERY of these people to ski and snowboard in the cold and in the nude.  As a nudist and “low-level” naturist, I have my limits as to what it is I will do and not do in the nude and certainly where I will do it. For example, I simply am not spending more than five to ten minutes tops, in the nude, fucking around in the cold or winter – exposure time depending on the wind chill factor at the time, regardless of the [reasonable amount] of body hair I have. Uh-huh. Nope. Not gonna happen, muthafucka!  Of course, in my lifetime, I’ve taken out my dick several times and pissed in the cold. I’ve even mooned people in the cold (while drunk, of course) but that’s about the limit of my “exposure” in cold and/or winter. And even if I skied or snowboard (which by the way, I do not know how to do) I would never, EVER place my beloved dick and balls in harm’s way – or potential harm’s way; not in the manner in which I see some of the brave guys in this video are doing!  Oh HEL-L-L-L NO!  The length of my dick or how low my ball sac hangs has nothing to do with it! I’m simply all about protecting that which always brings me so much pleasure, baby! I have to at least be wearing a jock strap under a pair of commando shorts! That’s not being wimpy; that’s having a greater love for my jawn than with ever showing off whatever risky thing I can do butt-ass naked!

I hope you enjoyed the video, readers – I certainly did! The music helped make it that more awesome! I give highest props to the participants in the video but RobFather-X is taking a pass on any offers to ski or snowboard in the nude.

Keepin’ It…REAL!
