Women Serving in
Combat Positions
Is a Batty Idea

Townhall, by Doug Giles

Original Article

Posted By:lcl4, 1/27/2013 4:12:14 PM

Last Thursday Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and other U.S. military leaders lifted the ban on women serving in combat positions. I, for one, think this is a great idea and have a few modest proposals, if the brass inside the beltway is open to suggestions, on how they should deploy the dames (and whom they should deploy). First off, if you truly want to eviscerate the enemy—namely Muslims—then I propose sending the most nerve grating and foul women Hollywood has to offer straight into hot zones as our forward armies.

Comments:
I think this should be a ´Must Read´.

I think it´s crazy for an outgoing def. sec. to drop this bomb on the way out the door. Number two,it should have gone through congress,so the idea is thoroughly vetted.

This is really nothing more than a liberal social agenda item which has the potential to hurt readiness because women are obviously a distraction for men.

The whole thing is moot anyway as the left wants to transform the military into a humnitarian duty only.

Maybe it is not such a crazy idea. After all, look at all the babies the liberal women have slaughtered. Perhaps the draft should only apply to liberal women.

Good stuff. Then add in Sandra Bernhart, Janeane Garafolo,
and Madonna.
The 101st Harpy Battalion would be a sight to see.
Remember that all their units need to have a 125% number of soldierettes on the roster, because at any given time, 25% will be out with the menses.
But, hey I forgot about how in close conditions their menses synchronize. How we going to deal with that?
How do these commys come up with this ridiculous stuff?

With one dim exception notice that none of these clowns pushing women in combat have ever heard a shot fired in anger.

Is every female "warrior" gonna have a "minder" who keeps one bullet in his weapon just for her in case of capture?????

If they hate their own women enough to torture and kill them, what do you think they´ll do to one of our women who has tried to kill or succeeded at killing them??

Imagine the spectacle on Al´s jazeera with one of our women getting raped and tortured to within a millimeter of her life and then getting beheaded.

Makes me stop and think, too bad the people (and I use that term advisedly) in DC don´t.

I´m quite sure the enemy is very happy about this. Insanity and another wedge of collapse.

I may be wrong but it seems that the majority of the people that are advocating women in front line roles are women who are not in the military, hate the military, or would never qualify or volunteer for a combat job if they were in the military.

I don´t know any women that could play on a men´s football team. Although I heard that one tried once.
There are very few women that can pass the brutal strength tests that are presently required ,almost none, so they will have to lower the bar. They would have to lower the physical standards and that would be silly, but the left is usually silly. They are going to bump up against the ´truth´ at some point.
I do think that women would be good at some things , like pilots, but not ground fighting.

The idea could work if the women had their own units [all female] and a completely different Rules of Engagement. Although it is rightly forbidden the men, the women should be permitted to rape, pillage, and loot. They would absolutely terrorize the enemy,

Only a person who has never served in the infantry could possibly think this is a good idea.

A couple of years back, the Marine Corps hand picked a couple of women to be test subject and go through the Infantry Officers Basic Course at Quantico. Neither could make it.

My big question is when these women come back ( or not from their Combat Tours) How will the Veterans Admin Handle the problems created by injuries, children, wounds both mental and physical. The VA cannot handle the current crop of returning vets and their injuries, Traumatic Brain Injuries, amputation and PTSD. Their inability to process these Veterans into the VA´s current system has created the need for organizations like the Wounded Warrior Foundation and DAV and AmVets, and American Legion who are trying to step in and take care of these Veterans til the VA can get around to rating and arranging for their specific care needs. THe bigh hump is getting the money appropriated for the VA to be able to do their duty to the Promises made by the Country to its Veterans.

The VA is a joke.
My spouse´s 2006 claim for Agent Orange in Viet Nam was finally decided in April, 2012, 4 months after he died.

Sex and the Military

The headline on the front page of the New York Times said it all: "Women in the Senate Confront the Military on Sex Assaults." In a triumphalist article showcasing the growing numbers of women on the Senate Armed Services Committee, "one of the Senate´s most testosterone-driven panels," the story line presents female Senators attacking male military officials over charges of sexual assaults against women in the armed forces. Us-against-them stories are great for generating excitement in the media and in politics.

I just got back from hunting buffalo in Zimbabwe for the last two weeks. It’s always a pleasure for me to go beyond the pavement, where the cell phones don’t work, and I can’t go online and there isn’t a television that functions within a sixty-mile radius. Yep, when I’m hunting out in the African bush, or in an Alaskan swamp, or I’m out of cell phone range crushing some mahi in the Atlantic, I truly enjoy the technological fast from my Mac book, my iPhone and my TV.

The 20 Greatest Quotations
From Rush Limbaugh
Townhall, by John Hawkins    Original Article
Posted By: lcl4- 6/1/2013 1:34:57 PM     Post Reply
If you listen to liberals, you´d think that Rush Limbaugh is the de facto boss of the entire Republican Party. So, if they´re going to portray him that way, then it seems like a good idea to give people -- who have yet to listen to his radio show --information about his message that goes beyond out-of-context quotations supplied by liberals who loathe him. There are millions of Republicans, myself included, who became conservatives because of hearing quotes like these from Rush Limbaugh.

In recent columns, I´ve mentioned a disturbing trend involving the lack of due process in the adjudication of campus rape cases. The fact of the matter is that rape cases are rarely handled properly on university campuses. They are usually either a) taken too seriously or, b) not taken seriously enough. That is unsurprising, given that rape is both the most over reported and under reported crime in America. To say that rape is the most over reported crime in American is to say that there are more false allegations of rape than of other serious crimes like robbery, burglary,

Grab some popcorn, folks. Pull up a chair. Get yourself a 6 pack. No … a 12pack and join with me and other liberty-minded folks as we watch the Left finally sink their comedic and inquisitive teeth into the rotted flesh of the Hope & Crap Machine that we’ve been caterwauling about for the last five, seems like twenty, years. I don’t know about you guys but last week was a little gift from God as we got to see the Lame Stream Media get a modicum of game and finally call Obama and his ilk out on the carpet for their Benghazi Bullsmack, their egregious bullying of patriotic non-profits by the IRS

Just when you thought the crap couldn’t get any creepier in Obamaland, BOOM, it does and things just got a little bit more … how shall I say it … peculiar. Can we still use the word “peculiar”? We can? Good. Cue Twilight Zone music, por favor, and allow me to proceed. So, what am I talking about you ask? Am I referring to the forced lesbian kissing class in a Red Hook, New York middle school? No, silly. That was like two weeks ago.

I used to be caring and compassionate and liberal. I supported gun control and the “right” of the government to seize a large chunk of my paycheck in order to plan my retirement for me. But, somewhere, somehow, along life´s twisted way, I became a greedy capitalist pig. And, truth be known, it´s affecting my entire neighborhood. It all started on New Year´s Eve when my friend Adam came by to help me with a small project inside the house. On that Eve, Adam informed me that my property wasn´t exactly looking like the Garden of Eden.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

About six in ten American voters think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters some or most of the time, according to a Fox News poll released Wednesday. Thirty-seven percent think Obama lies “most of the time,” while another 24 percent say he lies “some of the time.” Twenty percent of voters say “only now and then” and 15 percent “never.” Click here for the poll results. President Obama has been accused by political opponents and media fact-checkers alike of telling falsehoods.
