God looks after children, animals and idiots. Lou Holtz
This morning arrived email from the editor of an online newspaper (www.fairfaxfreecitizen.com) who regularly (re)publishes my commentary.
Since not writing for the past couple weeks the editor wanted to know if all was well and, with link included, asked if I'd seen the latest from Ray Mabus (political appointee serving as head of the U. S. Navy).
"...yes, all is well and yes, saw the news and am considering a brief comment."
Recently, prior to this past week, another political appointee (Mister Ash Carter) serving as head of the defense department opened all military specialties, including direct ground combat, to women.
Now Mister Mabus has directed the Marines to integrate, as in genders, recruit training and to gender-neutralize MOS titles - that is, remove "man" - soonest.
Misters Carter and Mabus, as noted, are political appointees, temporary at that, with nothing more than policy-making powers.
At the core of what is going on is warfighting power and national security. That's it! And that is law-making business and a power that rests with Congress. Where is Congress?
The misters and their mister master want a gender-neutral force.
Neutered is truth and reality.
A target-rich environment, there's countless holes to be poked.
The most obvious of which is with gender-neutral uniforms, intermingled training, and sterile titles there must be a gender-neutral grooming standard.
No, that's not a joke.
Either current male standards are relaxed permitting longer hair; cosmetics; jewelry; etc., or female standards are changed to the current male standards. Or a happy medium - as plotted on a curve.
Fair is fair. The force is gender-neutral or it is not.
Ralph Peters knows pussy when he sees it. And he calls it the way he sees it - even on live television.
And so do Marines know pussy.
Marines poke holes - in idiocy and a lot more.
Chair(man) of the Joint Chiefs of Staff?
We're not talking football game, children nor animals.
Ralph Peters is paying attention, gents. And so are Marines - disgusted and concerned about the (Marine) mold.
