Sissification of the US Marines!

As a former Marine, I find this to be almost as repugnant as the Imposter In the White House!
Next, he'll have them wearing nylons and skirts!
Just can't wait to see the new dress shoes that go with the "New Look"

Crank up the defibrillator: The New York Post is having a coronary over what it says is "Obama's plan" to sissify the United States Marines. "A change to the Marine Corps' uniform hats could take the hard-nosed Leathernecks from the Halls of Montezuma to the shops of Christopher Street," gasps the tabloid in what it calls an "exclusive" article headlined "Obama wants marines to wear 'girly' hats."

This old news. The Corps has already refused the suggestion. It will become new news if Barry issues an executive order mandating it. It could be that Michelle is using Barry to change the Corps to her image of what a real man should look like. Whatever happened with Barry?

As to sissifying the Corps. It has been attempted many times in the past and the Corps has always adapted. Commandant Shoup took away the NCO's swagger sticks in the 1950's. The General didn't think it was very Marine Corps-ish for Drill Instructors to tap on boot's (recruit's) foreheads to make a point using a swaqger stick.

In the 1970's the Corps lost a lot of senior NCO's (SSGT & above) who didn't want to be a part of the new sensitivity training. I don't know if the Corps has recovered from that as a lot of tradition was lost with their exit.

My Marine Corps of 1962 to 1966 was before the transition period brought on by the Vietnam War, racial unrest, and drugs. You could still get your ass kicked in boot camp for being stupid or for not listener to the DI's.

It only takes one to KEEP AMERICANS FREE. Know your duties & rights as a juror. Stop the unconstitutional conviction of innocents in federal custody. The Fully Informed Jury CALL 1-800-TEL-JURY www.fija.org IMMEDIATELY if not sooner. It's that important.

It's the United State Marine

It's the United State Marine Corps, not the freaking British Airlines.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

Sexual assault

maybe won't be taken nearly so seriously (not that it ever was). The Marine women will see them in their silly (little)hats, and just laugh when the men try any funny business. They'll feel impudent, and just slink away. That Obamey, he's a clever one.

Not true. Read Stars and Stripes

“The president in no way, shape or form directed the Marine Corps to change our uniform cover,” according to the Marine Corps statement. “We are looking for a new cover for our female Marines for one overriding reason: The former manufacturer went out of business. … The Marine Corps has zero intention of changing the male cover.”

I think they're fabulous.

Simply fabulous.

Daily Paul cured my abibliophobia.

Anyone else think that this

Anyone else think that this might be a cost saving measure by a government that is running out of money? The proposed uniform change sure does look cheap compared to the current uniform.


Payout to Democrat owned Hat Mfg. Company's

...plain and simple...

Wha? .....hey....who stole my country?

No, because this Admin is

No, because this Admin is hellbent on bankrupting America so they keep wasting money and spreading the hegemony of the USD, because that's all they know how to do. They are bribing people and corrupting the world. This is not a cost saving deal. I bet you will find it costs more. I'd put 50 on it

The Pussification of the Military

Published on Oct 24, 2013

I'm so pissed I can hardly talk in this vid http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/10/24/obama-wants-marin...


She's so bad ass. LOL.

Predictions in due Time...

"Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it's realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy." - Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul

This Marine is angry.

She's great. And I do believe she's right about the reason for this proposed change. No doubt they'll try to phase out all gender-specific clothing... make the entire uniform unisex, along with anything else in the military that might currently reflect the FACT that there are two distinct genders. I'm sure she's right about the plan to purge the military of God, too. It's already being accomplished where chaplains are concerned.

Another thought came to mind. When earlier today I read about the cost to the federal government to maintain its golf courses, I laughed to recall Pelosi saying that the cupboard was bare, that people didn't understand that there was no place else *to* cut. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BRxPST4vR1o

Well, it was my first thought when I clicked on this post - the federal government wanting to make this totally UNNECESSARY (and unwanted) uniform change. Like the Marine said, stop trying to fix what isn't broken.

I missed that but still

to even consider this....really!

I am sure they will come up with something else to turn things "more upside down" than they already are!
