VMI has been castrated

JJ Jackson must be rolling over in his hallowed grave.

What a travesty! Her Thighness has done nothing but aid and abet the Obaminator in undermining America's standing around the world.



Nos genuflectitur ad non princeps sed Princeps Pacem!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

When you had possession of 400+ FBI files, the world is your oyster.

Does anyone actually think Evita rates the cushy jobs, prestige, status and honors strictly on her personal merit?

Even most of our military leaders are brainwashed wusses.

Well, the kid had a chance to go to VMI...so glad he didn’t now.
Instead, he went to Hampden-Sydney College, Farmville, VA, and had Justice Sam Alito as his graduation speaker...yay!

Pietro, that’s Thomas Jackson...truly a sainted one! Cheers...

"Even most of our military leaders are brainwashed wusses."

The better to follow orders to put down any conservative or states' revolt after Obama completely ruins America. .

Ok this is bad enough on its own. No need to pile on.

By the way, that last comment was in fun. I have a couple of friends from HS. That being said, it doesn’t stop me from harassing them with broad generalizations. Ha ha.

Oh, OUCH!
Actually, he was not in a frat and it’s not that big of a deal there...unlike your neighbor, Wash and Lee.

I got the joke - not the first time!
I have to admit that if he was a different type of kid, VMI would have been perfect for him but, sorry, once the girls got in, you knew what would happen next...i.e. the Citadel, USNA, USMA...etc.

Not only is it a swing state, but college students who do not live here permanently may vote in the Commonwealth’s elections. Ok, we’ve got Liberty U, but the rest of the liberal institutions will vote Dem. You can take that to the bank.

Agreed. I was the last all male class.

HS is a very good school and has produced some very fine men.

Really...my hubbie was in the last class at the Naval Academy that was all male...”the last class with b*lls”!
I’m happy with the education the kid got too at H-S...he went into the place academically weak and came out with a great GPA - this despite all the pahr-teyin’...
But we do have a soft spot for VMI, being a military family...cheers.

You beat me to it -- exactly what I was thinking.

Pietro, that’s Thomas Jackson..

Thanks for the correction, I wasn't sure, but Lee certainly wasn't such the genius after old Stonewall was gone.

Imagine Jackson on the right at Gettysburg instead of Longstreet.

No prob...and there is some question as to the “J” for his middle name...I read a great bio on him awhile back and would say yeah, if he hadn’t been done in so early,things might have been different.
I look at Jackson as the spiritual guide for the Army of Northern Virginia but Lee as the heart and soul of the Army. He was, if nothing else, an honorable man...
This from a great-great granddaughter of a Confederate hero!
