    The Black Lives Matter group had a protest march in Oakland, Calif., July 21, and a number of the participants were little children. Theyd been trained in social activism at something called the Abundant Beginnings summer camp. One of the youngest was a 3-year old little girl, Jonnie-mae Taylor of Berkeley, who led the chant: What do you want? The response was Justice! She asked, When do you want it? The response: Now! Mind you, she is 3 years old. This child was one of some 20 who attended that camp to be trained in social responsibility and justice. One...

    Much of this is intended simply to anger us and break our will to resist. We need to understand that fact. The whole transgendered bathroom nonsense is a classic example A thought occurred to me the other day, which does actually happen to me now and then; the whole of modern culture, the political correctness, the way the left approaches the rest of us, is very much a kind of boot camp for communism. The purpose of military boot camp is to break down the individual, to wed him to the group, to get him to believe things and do...

    Navy Secretary Ray Mabus has given Marine Corps brass two weeks to submit a plan to train male and female recruits together at boot camp and fully integrate officer candidate school. He's also calling for the Marines to make all job titles gender-neutral as the service opens currently closed ground combat jobs to women. In a Jan. 1 memo obtained by Military.com and first reported by Marine Corps Times, Mabus ordered the Corps to send him a detailed plan by Jan. 15 for making boot camp and officer training coed. He also requested that the Marines provide him with a...

    The Canadian teen charged in connection with a fatal Miami shooting is eligible for a county boot-camp program that would spare him significant time in jail, a court heard on Monday. Now, Miami-Dade prosecutors must decide if they will allow 15-year-old Marc Wabafiyebazu to enter the program as punishment for his role in a botched drug rip-off that left his older brother and another teen shot to death in March.

    The Chicago Sun-Times ^ | November 21, 2013 | Frank Main
    A Sun-Times survey of thousands of pages of court records found that since 2006, Cook County judges have handed down hundreds of improper boot camp sentences to violent felons. Simons case ended in tragedy. Less than two years after he was sent to the four-month boot camp program, Simons was charged with murdering Kermit Delashment II, a 21-year-old college student with big dreams. Delashments death was the 500th killing of 2008 in Chicago. In all, 17 armed robbers got such a break during that period in Cook County. After their release from the program, 12 of those 17 men were...

    "Learn to write software in 9 weeks? New coding boot camps promise to launch tech careers" _______________________________________________ SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Looking for a career change, Ken Shimizu decided he wanted to be a software developer, but he didn't want to go back to college to study computer science. Instead, he quit his job and spent his savings to enroll at Dev Bootcamp, a new San Francisco school that teaches students how to write software in nine weeks. The $11,000 gamble paid off: A week after he finished the program last summer, he landed an engineering job that paid more...

    Basic Combat Training is getting ready for some major changes to reflect the modern battlefield, said Lt. Gen. Mark Hertling, deputy commanding general for Initial Military Training. Hertling, who is responsible for managing the training of Soldiers from the day they enter the Army until they report to their first duty assignments, made his remarks last week during a visit to Fort Jackson, the largest of the Army's five basic training centers. "We really took a look at the relevancy of what we're doing," Hertling said. "We're teaching Soldiers too much stuff." One of the changes Hertling wants to implement...

    IntegrityDear Spirit and Life readers,One of my most memorable experiences in Marine Corps boot camp was the lesson of integrity. Certain infractions of the strict code of discipline were considered "integrity violations" such as lying or undermining the chain of command, etc. We all implicitly understood that term to mean the breaking of rules of conduct or ethics that bind men together for the common mission. We did our best to avoid committing any violations of integrity, not merely to avoid penalties, but more so because we sought to form ourselves as honorable, trustworthy men deserving of our uniforms.Ironically, the...

    In Korea, a boot camp cure for Web obsession By Martin Fackler Sunday, November 18, 2007 MOKCHEON, South Korea: The compound part boot camp, part rehab center resembles programs around the world for troubled youths. Drill instructors drive young men through military-style obstacle courses, counselors lead group sessions, and there are even therapeutic workshops on pottery and drumming. But these young people are not battling alcohol or drugs. Rather, they have severe cases of what many in this country believe is a new and potentially deadly addiction: cyberspace. They come here, to the Jump Up Internet Rescue School,...

    It's a True Crime post and we must explore that verdict on the so-called Boot camp case. There's been an arrest in the murder of one of the two sisters, both dead in the same house and within a week of each other. The perp was arrested for killing his wife but did he kill her sister too? Some info on the naked man in Times Square, a good Samaritan leaves a dangerous unknown substance at the scene and was the child molested on the airplane or is someone looking for a payoff?

Inside the armored vehicles, schoolchildren huddle in oversize helmets and camouflage fatigues. Some look terrified, but one girl snaps open a hand-held mirror to check her face before the landing. A 14-year-old boy dozes all the way to the beach. Some of these kids are hard cases to crack, said Sgt. First Class Shim Sang-kyu, a crew-cut marine, shouting above the noise...

    As he took the stage to usher Windows Vista to market, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer last week tried to put the software's laborious birth behind him. The company's 71,000 employees -- and the entire PC industry, for that matter -- could be excused for breathing a sigh of relief, too. "It's an exciting thing to finally be here, and that's probably all I'll say about the past," Ballmer said at the unveiling from Nasdaq's cylindrical high-tech building in New York's Times Square. Office 2007 and Exchange Server 2007 also were introduced, and 30 more products will follow over the next...
