    Why Women Do Not Belong in the U.S. Infantry‏

    I had that happen to me at Virginia Beach Mall circa 1994. I slammed the door in the ungrateful woman's face.

    Why Women Do Not Belong in the U.S. Infantry‏

    I served with many capable and respectable women. But I remain old-fashioned. Women do not belong in combat. Call me what you like, but I believe that we are created with inherent roles, and combat falls on our side of that fence. I don't want women exposed to the horrors of war if it can be...

    USMA Football

    Ugh.... Don't remind me. I was there for the great Eliot Uzelak. "Up the middle! Up the middle! Up the middle! PUNT!" "Up the middle! Up the middle! Up the middle! PUNT!" "Up the middle! Up the middle! Up the middle! PUNT!" Imagine 4,500 frustrated Midshipmen chanting that over and...

    shooting right hand dominant, left eye dominant

    This. With practice, anything can be mastered. Just don't try to get a cheek weld using your left eye to aim if shooting right-handed...

    shooting right hand dominant, left eye dominant

    Little-known pic of LITS in action. :biggrin: For me? A pistol is what I use to fight my way back to the rifle I should have never put down in the first place...

    Air Strikes in Syria

    Won't matter. Two Russian tank generals met in Paris, and one asked the other, "So who won the air war?" It has been said since long before 2001: these vermin must be pulled out by the root and incinerated. Unfortunately, the West no longer has the stomach for that kind of work. Lob a...

    SA's are targeted?

    Respectfully, file under "duh"... The Service Academies are highly-visible light targets full of the best and brightest. No guns allowed, of course, so the fish are all in a nice little barrel. But that's okay. Assault weapons are illegal in NY, CT, and MD, so nothing will happen at USMA...

    Almost Old Guard?

    Talk to me in 16 years. By then you'll know why I'm laughing at you right now. :shake: As for my beloved Yard..... I barely recognize it anymore...:frown:

    Two candidates from same high school?

    There are Mids of all faiths (or none at all). The (relatively new) Jewish Center is a beautiful sight to behold. You don't build something like that unless there are folks around who will use it.

    Two candidates from same high school?

    This right here. When I was a Plebe, I walked in to a Scuba Club meeting and stopped cold. Before me was a 3/C who I swore I'd seen before. He recognized me, too. Turns out he and I were high school classmates for two years, and he had gone straight in, whereas I'd taken the long way...

    Do you believe in American Exceptionalism?

    This is undoubtedly our old friend who trolls here for the express purpose of demonstrating just how stupid liberals are. I mean, come on.... Three posts and they're all here? Talk about not having a life...:rolleyes: A flaming leftist troll quoting John Adams. Gotta love it... I'm not...
