Quote Of The Day

I could basically just mine Tucker Carlson’s nightly FNC show for a QOTD, but that would involve watching FNC.

This one of Tucker’s, however, is specifically on target:

“Here’s a reminder: the U.S. military exists to fight and win wars. That’s its only purpose. The U.S. military is not an NGO. It is not a vehicle for achieving ‘equity.’ It’s not a social experiment. It’s definitely not an employment agency. Nobody has a God-given right to work in the military. No one does, and that includes all of us.”

‘Nuff said.

Except that women don’t belong in the fucking military.  There, I said it, and I will never change my opinion.


  1. I never did find my old essay on women (and gays) in the military from the old American Rifleman site. So sad. I could never duplicate it, I think. Unfortunately, I fear we’ve lost the military. The wholesale sacking of flag officers under Obama killed it.

  2. Or, as Rush (PBUH) was wont to say: The purpose of the military is to kill people and break things.

  3. First and foremost they don’t belong in the Navy. Lenah Higbee to the contrary notwithstanding.

  4. My wife agrees – they don’t belong in the military, and the new ACFT shows that they can’t meet the standards that men are held to, and that everyone in combat is supposed to meet.

  5. There is at least one argument for having a separate female branch of the military. It’s a little weak.

    We will always need non-combatant support in the field in the areas of medicine, clerical, and logistics. Men can do the job of nursing, clerking, and supplying, but at least for medicine, females in war zones dates back to at least the Crimean war.

    You could argue that the necessary females should be civilian contractors, and you’d have a point. But civilians in war zones are often assumed to be spies.

    The Geneva conventions, bless their heart, provide a loophole for uniformed non-combatants. Their military status gives them cover under the conventions.

    Which would be great if the US ever fought an enemy that regulated itself by the Geneva conventions.

  6. The crap I saw in the First Gulf War convinced me that you are right. Women have no place in the military. At least not in any unit that will ever deploy anywhere – that includes headquarters and supply units. There was a constant stream of women being sent home after getting pregnant (many married and not deployed with their husbands) and a few notable cases of ladies being arrested for prostitution.

    1. I remember Desert Shield and Desert Storm, the complete shit storm of people in the military (not just the guard, but actual army) that all of a sudden had a shit-fit that OMG we are going to be deployed. There were news stories about GI’s who only joined up in order to get a college education and never expected to, you know, do real army stuff. And lots and lots of the females all of a sudden found themselves pregnant.

      There’s always going be slackers in any organization, but women got that extra bonus option of “pleading their belly”.

      I never served, so guess I shouldn’t talk. But I was smart enough to know that Uncle Sugar has been at war almost continuously for the past 100 years or so. Signing up would generally mean a good possibility of live fire experience.

      1. I did serve, then. I wouldn’t, now. My son-in-law spent over 3 of his first 5 years in Iraq and Afghanistan, while plenty of slackers never deployed.

  7. no argument about ladies in the military, but first, some dumb questions:
    how do the Israelis do it?
    what do the Israelis have the ladies do?

    1. The Israelis tried women in regular units in their early wars and it was a disaster. Now they take all the women who really want to be in a combat unit, stick them into a single regiment, and keep that regiment stationed in the quietest border area. The rest of their combat units are still all men.

  8. I’d like to say there are exceptions (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leigh_Ann_Hester), but for every Lee Ann Hester you have to take 10,000 FROB’s (Free Ridin’ Oxygen Breathers).

    The military is fucked. I was at a major DC area base last month and saw a couple of soldiers (male) who had black nail polish on their pinkie finger. I couldn’t NOT ask what that was all about and they told me it was in support of BLM. I asked if their First Sergeant was ok with that and their response was “Fuck the First Sergeant if he ain’t–he ain’t gonna say shit.”

  9. For the most part I agree. 99.9% of females are not qualified to serve in frontline combat infantry or artillery units. As with any rule, there are always outliers. The Russians had very good female pilots and snipers in WW2, the Israelis have found women to be useful in certain areas in their military currently, and I understand the Kurds also have some very good female snipers. On the other hand, when it comes to comparing purely physical strength and stamina requirements, a very fit and conditioned male soldier will always outclass and out last a female. There is a reason that track and field and weight lifting and most other sports have separate classes for males and females. Allowing trannies to compete in the female class is always going to end up with the true females in the losing column. (Of course, the Russian women in WW2 were a hardier breed than the soft pampered American breed of today. To survive the Stalin years, you had to be.)

  10. Everything that interrupts the marriage-children-grandchildren cycle for women is part of the core reason that this country is ass over teakettle. That’s women in the military, majority of women in the workforce, women executives, all of it.

    Repeal the 19th.
