A number of former soldiers have spoken out against the move because of the tough logistical life of fighters on the front line, even though many outsiders see Defense Secretary Leon Panetta´s decision to lift the ban on women serving in combat positions as a progressive move. Some have spoken out about how the move ignores some of the realities of war, like disgusting unhygienic conditions and the way that soldiers are sometimes forced to change in front of one another, in favor of gender equality. One wrote a letter in the Wall Street Journal describing the conditions

Just in case you aren´t disturbed enough, combine this bit of news with a potential draft in the future. Opens the door for drafting women now doesn´t it.

This is not progress.

Assuming none of the powers that be who thought this was a zippy idea have never served in combat, have they not read any of the books that describe what it is like? Try Sebastian Junger´s War, on Afghanistan. Or any number of books about WWII.

We do not see this in the Hollywood versions of war.

Get ready for a spate of sexual harassment lawsuits followed by busted careers of some darn good fighting men. Yep, the military is going down for the sake of liberal ideology.

Maybe it is because not enough men are volunteering any more. When they can´t even protect themselves unless they are shot at. The rules of engagement are just plain dumb.

I think it´s interesting that this argument always comes down to poor hygene habits amongst males.

German Army: We don´t used deodorant in the field!

Leon served in the First Heavy Pork Division (To the victors go the spoils) fighting to give contracts to Democratic donors while under heavy Republican fire.

Barack Obama served in the Very Light Infantry Brigade, The Screaming Metrosexuals, based in Chicago. Hillary claimed in a NY Times article designed to shift focus away from Bill´s draft dodging that she wanted to join military. However, military rejected her because male soldiers didn´t want to risk seeing her naked, showered or not. She did come under fire for Benghazi, but escaped without a scratch.

It´s all a farce, and we are the audience.

Piñata´s afternoon announcement was designed to shift evening news away from Hillary´s testimony. Longer term, Obama and Hagel will use GOP efforts to keep woman out of combat for more War on Women PR..

The thing is, most women don´t want to be on the front lines. They know they´re not equipped for it in many ways, including strength and temperament.

But if a woman can pass all the rigors of training that the men do -- without exception -- then it seems like they´d just be another asset. The social implications are always the monkey wrench, though.

I don´t think anybody brought it up yet but combat situations often make you really horny, especially when anyone of the opposite sex is around. I understand it is a survival of the species thing. It´s nice of the brass to think about our combat troops and provide them with a little "companionship."

A soldier called in this morning on Laura Ingraham´s show and said while he was in combat the men didn´t get a shower for 90 DAYS. Some of the women were helicoptered out to give them showers. This is just a disaster of epic proportions. The ramifications of this horrible decision are endless. This is just what 0bama wants, to create chaos everywhere, no matter what segment of society.

Tired women force the guys to choose: I know the guys in training rotate carry the womens´ gear because she just can´t keep up and they have to help her out at the end of the day to keep up with the group.

This kind of thinking forces young men to decide to leave behind a flagging female or risk more of them being hurt or worse.

How much do I despise this government for forcing good men to make these kind of decisions.

Through the contracting magic of companies like KBR and Fluor there are hot showers and video games and good food at even the smallest FOB´s and COP´s in Afghanistan.

Been there.

Done that.

Let´s make the military exclusively female.

we can simply say: "Big deal...so you beat a

And what happens when, in the chaos of combat, women lose their Urinary Diversion Devices? What happens when supply lines prioritize, um, ammo and ordinance over boxes of “menstrual suppression pills”?

In the meantime, our enemies will be bright enough to know that men make better soldiers than women. Our gender-compromised battalions will be up against the uniformity, and cohesive uncompromised morale, of MEN.

You couldn’t destruct this country better than if by plan. I wonder…

All women within the right age group need to register with the Selective Service. And, women should not be given the choice to go into combat. Men don´t have a choice, why should women? That means every women needs to meet the same physical standards as men.

If people are so hung up on what is on the outside of a body then how can they respect what is inside the body? For centuries we have been brainwashed into being ashamed of having a normal human body. We are so ashamed that we have to cover up to console our false sense of reality.

Someone once told me that we must honor and respect all of God´s creations. Well when it comes to the human body some tell God to "stick it". It´s not really a matter of morals, it´s a matter of what and who we truly are.

WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service and other federal agencies awarded about $415,000 in contracts to a license plate-tracking company before Homeland Security leaders dropped a plan for similar work amid privacy complaints. Federal offices such as the Forest Service and the U.S. Air Force´s Air Combat Command chose Livermore, Calif.-based Vigilant Solutions to provide access to license plate databases or tools used to collect plate information, according to government procurement records compiled by Bloomberg. Vigilant, a closely held company, has received such work since 2009. In February, Jeh Johnson, secretary of the Department of Homeland Security

WASHINGTON— A Western official says the United States is considering deploying about 150 soldiers for military exercises to begin in Poland and Estonia in the next few weeks. The exercises would follow Russia´s buildup of forces near its border with Ukraine and its annexation last month of Ukraine´s Crimean Peninsula. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said earlier this week that the U.S. is looking for ways to reassure its NATO allies of its strong commitment to collective defense. The Western official says ground exercises in Poland and Estonia would last about two weeks but that such exercises would continue on a

Under the headline “A bipartisan message to Iran,” the senator thanks the president for signing his S 2195 bill into law, which prevents anyone who has engaged in espionage or terrorism against the U.S. from gaining entry to the country via the United Nations. “Thanks to President Obama for joining a unanimous Congress and signing S 2195 into law,” Cruz begins his piece.

The 147 people were discovered in a house at the 8900 block of North Bentsen Palm Drive. Border Patrol spokesman Danny Tirado said he didn’t recall the exact time of the bust, but said it was not too long after the 81 people were found in a brushy area of McAllen northwest of Sprague and North 10th Street about 1 p.m. The 147 people detained

Bunkersville, Nevada — Cliven Bundy’s ranch, recently the site of a tense stand-off that started over two weeks ago between the federal government and the Bundy family, had morphed into a good old-fashioned family picnic complete with live country music, hamburgers, and hotdogs Friday. A week after the Bureau of Land Management’s armed force left Bunkersville, Bundy and his supporters continue to make the family’s case relating to Bundy’s right to graze his cattle on public land his family has been on for many years.

The president´s speeches may need to be accompanied by a laugh track from now on, considering the crickets he received at his appearance in Community College of Allegheny County, in Oakdale, Pa., on Wednesday. Although he tried to tout his new spending program, both Obama´s talking points and attempts at humor didn´t go over so well: At the end, when the president walked back from the podium to smile and wave at the roughly 60 people in the bleachers 20 feet behind him, he faced a unfriendly wall of faces. The White House video of the bleacher’s front rank shows three men with their hands crossed, one with his hands stuck

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent
