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 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,

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 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,

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.

Since the Boston terrorist attack on 4/15/13 we’ve been learning a whole lot about the two Muslim morons who blew up little children and severely injured hundreds of innocent onlookers and merry marathon runners. Speaking of the Boston terrorist attack, how long do you think it’ll be before the Leftists and their co-belligerent compadres, the Muslims, start whining about building a mosque close to the finish line of the Boston Marathon?

Progressives’ Ultimate Fetish

Progressives can’t help themselves. When normal person hear of a tragedy, they feel the natural range of emotions – fear, anger, sympathy, etc. But progressives are not normal humans. When they hear news of a tragedy their first thought is “How can this help the cause?” There’s something oddly perverse about this mental defect that somehow overrides decency in tragedy’s aftermath, but it’s as widespread amongst the political left as freckles are on redheads. Harsh? Perhaps. But sometimes the truth hurts.

   

 



 
Why Don Opposes Capital Rape

Don is angry with me. He cannot understand why I support punishing rapists with death while simultaneously defending the rights of the unborn. He accuses me of applying double standards, promoting hypocrisy, and of being "inconsistent." But I am perfectly consistent in my beliefs. And, truth be known, so is Don. The reason so many people are unfairly labeled as "inconsistent" is because the term "double standard" is applied in such a haphazard fashion. People are actually guilty of applying a double standard when they treat two identical things differently.

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

Las Vegas - Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft former Florida governor Jeb Bush into the 2016 presidential race, courting him and his intimates and starting talks on fundraising strategy. Concerned that the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal has damaged New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s political standing and alarmed by the steady rise of Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), prominent donors, conservative leaders and longtime operatives say they consider Bush the GOP’s brightest hope to win back the White House.

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

A startling rift appeared Tuesday on the Supreme Court as the three female Justices came out swinging like Brunnhildes — women warriors — for what they erroneously labeled an “entitlement” to employer-provided contraceptives and morning-after pills. The Justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a case hyped by the Democratic Party as a test for women’s rights. Justices Kagan, Ginsberg, and Sotomayor sprang on Hobby Lobby’s attorney , interrupting his every sentence and pummeling him with questions taken right out of the Democratic Party’s “war on women” playbook. That playbook was laid out in a

Ann Furedi, of BPAS, said the law does not prevent women from choosing a termination on the grounds of gender and she even compared it to abortion after rape. Mrs Furedi´s comments come weeks after it was disclosed that the CPS had decided not to prosecute two doctors who were exposed by a Daily Telegraph investigation arranging terminations purely because the unborn baby was a girl. A group of 50 MPs, drawn from across the party divide, then wrote to this newspaper warning that the decision was a “step back in the fight for gender equality” and effectively changes the law without

Only "mere scraps of data documented" Barack Obama´s mother´s "days in Seattle," writes Obama biographer David Maraniss in his 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. Incidentally, Maraniss was telling the truth: Ann´s "days in Seattle" weren´t mentioned in Dreams from my Father and were only vaguely implied in Maraniss´s lengthy 2008 article. And it appears that the only "scraps" of evidence of Obama´s mother´s time in Seattle during 1961-1962 was a listing in a Seattle Polk directory and a University of Washington (UW) transcript.
