    They never should have let the women in.
    Women in combat, stupid.
    Women commanding Paris Island, stupid.
    The world’s gone to shit.

    I agree with the women in combat part, but women are capable of command decisions. True, women tend to let emotions guide their decisions a little more than men but they can be trained to control them. Men naturally control their emotions for the most part. Nothing says a women can’t learn from us.

    I personally know a few mama grizzlies I’d be prousd to have in that position.

    Want hope? Want change? –

    Dump Boehner and install Rep. Peter King as GOP Speaker for the new 2013 Congress.

    I’ve heard from reliable sources that this incompetent current administration’s “Rules Of Engagement” for our military are so screwed-up and impractical that those crazy rules have been getting a lot of Army soldiers and Marines killed, yet another example of an administration that is so screwed-up that I would like to strangle the fools who put them into office.

    Four more years of this insanity?

    We survived Woodrow Wilson, FDR and Jimmy Carter, But I don’t think that we are going to survive Obama/Biden. They and the fools who elected them will destroy this country intentionally, preumably to then rebuild it as a Communist State. Will you let them?

    With respect to the Marines (my son is one): Why is it always about the Marines? You always hear about the marine corps birthday, but you NEVER hear people wishing The U.S Army a happy birthday (they turned 237 on 14 June) or any other service for that matter. Aren’t their sacrifices just as honorable?

    Happy Birthday Marine Corps:
    Here’s my Birthday Roast just for you..
    237 years and they’re still looking for a few good Men?? -good grief-
    Don’t you think it’s about time for them to become their own entity?..and drop the part about being a component of the Department of the U.S.Navy?
    They’ve earned it!
    Even the Coast Guard laughs about it!!

    Sincerely,

    Marine Corps Rules:

    1. Be courteous to everyone, friendly to no one.
    2. Decide to be aggressive enough, quickly enough.
    3. Have a plan.
    4. Have a back-up plan, because the first one probably won’t work.
    5. Be polite. Be professional. But, have a plan to kill everyone you meet.
    6. Do not attend a gunfight with a handgun whose caliber does not start with a ’4.’
    7. Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Ammo is cheap. Life is expensive.
    8. Move away from your attacker. Distance is your friend. (Lateral & diagonal preferred.)
    9. Use cover or concealment as much as possible.
    10. Flank your adversary when possible. Protect yours.
    11. Always cheat; always win. The only unfair fight is the one you lose.
    12. In ten years nobody will remember the details of caliber, stance, or tactics. They will only remember who lived.
    13. If you are not shooting, you should be communicating your intention to shoot.

    2. Make sure there is extra ammo and extra coffee.
    3. Curse bitterly.

    7. Receive funding, set up new command and assemble assets.
    8. Declare the assets ‘strategic’ and never deploy them operationally.
    9. Hurry to make 13:45 tee-time.
    10. Make sure the base is as far as possible from the conflict but close enough to have tax exemption.
