That was Then, This Is Now


It used to be that the affairs of our Great Nation were handled by serious men. It took serious men to fight the greatest military power in the 18th century World and send it scurrying back across the Atlantic. It took serious men to wage a civil war in order that the union of the Republic be spared. It took serious men, 12 million of them, to help win a world war.

These were our forefathers, serious men who could not tolerate nonsense, men who discussed serious matters and who sang serious songs. Like this one:

But, alas, times have changed. New "studies" indicate that we need more diversity in the military, we need more diversity in order to, well, to do something other than win wars I guess. Progressives insist that we need more of this type of recruit-

I swear, if you could paint a portrait on a turd it would resemble that preening Napolitano neoprene wand waver. If the progressives have their way, our military will be marching ala Monty Python:

It is serious, deadly serious business for our fellow patriots who serve in the Armed Forces; they must bear the consequences of failed foreign policy. It isn't fun being the pointy end of the spear.
The following video was provided by my buddy Charlie. It shows some serious training for our soldiers. It is over twelve minutes long, but if you have the time it is well worth it to see how modern techniques, including Hollywood special effects, are used in military training scenarios.

I have noticed a big change these past two years.

What we need in the US military is more diversity. Homosexuals, metrosexuals, transgenderites, girlie-girls, child molesters, progressives, fat people, midgets, grandmothers, insects, muslim extremists, porn stars, breast cancer survivors, preschoolers and the disabled are all dramatically underrepresented.

Let's stop the hate.

Nickie has a handle on this. This video would have been more realistic if there were some Obama hand picked homosexuals in it. They could have worn pink arm bands so the others would have known not to shoot them because they're kinder and gentler.

Them were the days my friend! But I'm afraid the American Dream is dead.

Trestin - and not all that change is good I'll wager.

Nickie - please don't forget the male lesbian multi-gendered hermaphrodites. They're a real touchy crowd - useless in a fight but great fun at weddings.

Odie - pink gives a great sight picture.

Mal - I a afraid so unless great changes take place that reverse a lot of teh damage.

The most incompetent person in any government position. By a light year. (that's 6 trillion miles.)
Hell, make it 3 light years to match our debt in US Dollars.

Kid - great analogy - our national debt in light dollars.

Every generation has had its share of twits in politics. But we seem to have more now than ever before.

WoFat - Twits? You're being far too kind.
