SWORDLESS SAILORS Graduating midshipmen of the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis are being told in writing to leave at home or in their vehicles all "ceremonial swords" and anything else "that might be considered a weapon or a threat by screeners" for Friday's outdoor commencement ceremonies featuring an address by President Barack Obama. Inside the Beltway has obtained the academy's list of prohibited items for this year's graduation exercises, which, besides ceremonial swords, includes umbrellas. Yes, cell phones and texting are still allowed.

What a pathetic, despicable, cowardly POS.
I have never heard something so STUPID in my life.
The penis mightier...
on memorial day no less...i mean could you make this up...
I must admit, I was taken aback by this when I first saw it a couple days ago. But, since then, I rather believe that 0bama does, in fact, fear the military. In reality, he should be sore afraid of the great silent majority of the populace, the folks about to wake up to his LibTard, Marxist march to Socialism and (hopefully) bring it to a grinding stop.
It’s time to take back the country.
0bama’s plans for this nation are so dark that even our enemies will wince. His fear of the people whom are charged with our protection and whom he willingly puts in harms way should be sufficient evidence to show him unfit to hold office.
Never before have I so appreciated the space bar.
Just when I’m recovering from one shocking story about the a$$clown Marxist, I’m confronted with another! More has been done to harm our Republic in the last 6 months than I ever could’ve imagined. More to come no doubt.
I have that T-shirt!
When Clinton the Draft Dodger visited our troops in Bosnia in 1993, the order was given to confiscate bolt carrier groups from all the M-16s, rendering them useless but giving the impression that Ol’ Horndog did not fear his own soldiers.
And now Snowbama is afraid of umbrellas!!? What’s he thinking, that one of those might conceal a poison pill?
“Never before have I so appreciated the space bar.”
The one in the starwars movie?/sarc
Ceremonial swords and umbrellas? Jiminy crickets that is stupid. Does he think someone is going to try and run him through with one of those??
“on memorial day no less...i mean could you make this up...”
Obama knows the lessons of history. He knows that he is attempting to destroy America by destroying the economy. He also knows that not all Americans are stupid enough to buy CNN and the other alphabet propaganda.
As Lyndon Johnson worried the rest of his presidency about a coup against him after pulling off the murder of President Kennedy, Obama knows that there is a growing population that wants to see his head on a stick.
You can fool some of the people all the time, fool all of the people some of the time but you can’t fool all the people all of the time.
yeah, there’s a lot of freaks around there too
A common law nation that cannot tolerate its military officers wearing ceremonial swords in the presence of its civilian chief executive is in big trouble.
Common law nations depend upon the concept that the military is subject to civilian control. That necessarily means that military officers, as a matter of military honour, maintain loyalty to the constitutionally constituted civilian authority.
There is a bond of trust between the civilian authority and the military. This order is a breach of that bond.
Wouldn’t it be interesting if 100% of the class brought their swords and was denied entrance.
There is a saying.... It is only the tyrant who fears the sword in his guard’s (the miltary’s) hands
I agree . . . he is afraid of a coup.
Obama is going Carter one better in his attempt to neuter the US military...and he is going to fail even more convincingly!
I have a cane that is really a single shot .44
