Off Topic Room / Military & Transgender
« Last post by retired82 on January 19, 2018, 06:01:08 AM »
rey Gowdy just said a few things about the military in response to the ban of transgenders. He nails it:

Nobody has a "right" to serve in the Military. Nobody. What makes people think the Military is an equal opportunity employer? Very far from it.
The Military uses prejudice regularly and consistently to deny citizens from joining for being too old or too young, too fat or too skinny, too tall or too short. Citizens are denied for having flat feet, or for missing or additional fingers. Poor eyesight will disqualify you, as well as bad teeth. Malnourished? Drug addiction? Bad back? Criminal history? Low IQ? Anxiety? Phobias? Hearing damage? Six arms? Hear voices in your head? Self-identify as a Unicorn? Need a special access ramp for your wheelchair? Can't run the required course in the required time? Can't do the required number of pushups? Not really a "morning person" and refuse to get out of bed before noon? All can be reasons for denial.

The Military has one job. War. Anything else is a distraction and a liability. Did someone just scream "That isn't Fair"? War is VERY unfair, there are no exceptions made for being special or challenged or socially wonderful. YOU change yourself to meet Military standards.. Not the other way around. I say again: You don't change the Military... you must change yourself. The Military doesn't need to accommodate anyone with special issues. The Military needs to Win Wars.


If any of your personal issues are a liability that detract from readiness or lethality... Thank you for applying and good luck in future endeavors. Who's next in line?

I usually check it each morning, but that was interrupted with a visit to the shop for brakes on the POV.

I guess this cold weather will help with the insects this summer,but this has been cold to be out in for any period of time.

Oh yeah when you live so far away from where you work and you have kids, it is a nightmare.  When they get sick, schools close for weather, or for after school activities.

Thanks for the link.
I have seen that they are building that Jodeco Station and I think it will be cool, I will love to visit but will be glad not to live up in it. Henry can have it.
