  • Senators to Mattis: Don't ban transgender troops

    During Bubba’s years my CSM told me once that serving in the military was like a driver’s license; a privilege not a right. You cannot have incapable drivers risking theirs’ and the lives of others on the road. In order to execute the military’s mission (kill the enemy and destroy their means to kill us) it needs individuals which can carry that mission with the least amount of risk to themselves and those who around them. This is why at MEPS you get a thorough physical and take written examinations; to discriminate between those mentally and physically capable to serve.

    With this said, no one can claim a right to serve. I want someone to ask any of these 45 congress critters to fully and convincingly explain just how our National security is degraded by excluding cross-dressing, gender-confused and likely mentally unstable individuals. On the contrary, their antics, behavior, and likely SJW attitudes would become disruptions as well as hinder good order and discipline which erodes the ability of any military unit to conduct its wartime mission.

    I read somewhere with credibility macstain’s upstart foundation took cash from Soros or a Soros connected entity. How about starting there.

    I am not a constituent of any of these three RINOs. That said, is there anything the respective States can do to recall or ensure these liars are removed from office?

    And this again, is another reason why we need term limits for Congress Critters.

    Perhaps I should have placed greater emphasis on “teach.” Outcomes are entirely a different thing in some regards dictated by the coach’s and parent’s (and to some extent the kid’s) desire to win.

    You have something in there. Imagine, an inner city program to bring soccer to the huge numbers of boys and girls who miss out on organized basketball and regular football. Teach the kids discipline, desire for self-improvement, how to work together and respect for others instead of showboating and self-aggrandizement.

    This I can get in front of and support. Better if it leads for some young stars to represent the U.S. and hear the National Anthem for them in a filled at capacity stadium.

    What would it take?

    I have thought of this as well. I think one reason soccer has not taken off as other sports have in the U.S. is marketing/commercialization. For example, football, baseball, and basketball have natural (game flow induced) and team initiated pauses which perfectly lend the game for marketing goods. Soccer has no time outs and commercial adds are relinquished to announcer input, screen corner images, player uniform appliques, and on the field sideline signage. Many of these can be easily ignored by the audience who has to continually watch the field or risk missing an extraordinary play or a hard earned goal. So, why should businesses spend money advertising through a sport not designed to give them the intended audience’s undivided attention? I think, the business aspect of professional sports has something to do in both the income of the players and the popularity of the sport. And yes, European soccer stars make millions of Euros endorsing products yet the advertisement benefit to the business happens off the field and not during the game (i.e. marketing exploits the popularity of the player not the sporting event itself). Counter example, exorbitant cost of Super Bowl add time.

    One more thing, soccer is a sport that just about any able bodied individual can learn and be good. Contrast that with basketball or football where short and small do not make the varsity team or at best get chosen last in the school yard. Additionally, you only need something to kick and some sort of ‘gate’ to play soccer. In my travels, I have seen kids make soccer balls from tree roots, rags, and even rocks. They marveled when we gave them real soccer balls sent from the States. The field can be anything from a street, roof, dirt field, etc. Not so easily done with other sports. The rules are very simple as well. This I think, also helps explains the huge appeal of soccer worldwide. And with a larger pool of participants there is a larger probability of genuine stars to emerge.

    I think that any U.S. National team that eventually wins a World Cup (from my keyboard to the Lord’s eyes) will be made of players with predominantly African and Latin surnames either (legal immigrants or first/second generation from legal immigrants) with the occasional European surname (multi-generational U.S. family name) in the mix.

    Agreed, I think he also has a greater affinity for noticing and properly reacting to the fine tactical evolution of the game at hand. I hope this portends wins against top tier world class teams as the Germans, Brazilians and the like.

    Do not if I am crazy but the U.S. team seemed to be challenging on defense sooner than midfield, something I had not seen in previous games. They were after the ball well into Jamaica’s end of the field. It looked to me as if the U.S. pressure on the ball contributed to many bad passes from Jamaica leading to greater possession time and goal attempts for the U.S. I liked that much better than playing the basketball equivalent of a half court game.

    You are correct, I forgot to mention the importance of a player’s self awareness away from the ball.

    Hmmm, I am always intrigued by those who impugn a sport as well as denigrate it as less-than-manly. I will go on a limb and guess you have never played soccer or as the rest of the world calls it football. By comparison to the NFL kind, soccer requires greater stamina, finesse and patience than the NFL kind.

    — In soccer, participants are always playing “both ways” and take no time-outs (T.V. commercial, huddle, or others) not to mention there are only three substitutions allowed in regular time (90 minutes).

    — In soccer, skill with the ball (dribbling, passing, etc.) takes a long time to master. Only a few NFL players ever get to touch the ball and even those whose livelihood depends on it need a helmet to aid them every now and then. And yes, handling an egg shaped “ball” is not easy, particularly when inflated to the proper pressure.

    — In soccer, scoring evolves over sequences of plays which require patience on the players to compose and in the audience to appreciate. In the NFL a score takes from the snap to the score; at its longest, the time it takes a running back to get a hand-off behind his own end zone to the goal line on the opposite side of the field. Truly an event made for those with the attention span of a retriever easily distracted by squirrels.

    While not denigrating NFL style football, I understand both sports are different and require different skill sets. NFL style football lends itself for quick gratification from the audience point of view with the downs and the play clock determining the pace of the game while soccer requires the audience to have patience and greater appreciation for the skill of the players. To me, both are very entertaining to watch and designed for different kinds of players. Not to get into social/sexual appeal discussion, yet in general terms, just about any body size can excel at soccer with practice while NFL style football favors tall and large (not necessarily fit judging by the size of some linemens’ guts) individuals. And in a woman’s case, an affinity for guys with broad artificial shoulders, tight pants with small groin bulges, and the star player reaching from behind into another player’s derriere.

    Yes, I have played both soccer as wing and American football as a wide receiver/safety in college/community/base intramurals and community leagues. As such I have respect for both. If you have not, give soccer a try in a local league wherever you live. I am convinced your moniker of soccer players as faeries will surely (not calling you Shirley) change.

    Regards.

    Well, what do you expect from a guy who when given the choice to vote for Carter instead casted his vote for the CPUSA? (see: http://freebeacon.com/politics/cia-director-once-voted-for-communist-presidential-candidate/)

    He is by far the most damaging and dangerous DCIA we have had in history to the Republic. I wonder what the DO worker bees think of him now.

    I’ve always wondered why we have not befriended India more. After all, they are a good ally against China and less duplicitous than Pakistan. I know what some will say, “we need the Pakis to chase down AQ/Taliban/Haqqani,” yet they have not been much help in my view.

    Few typos on last, corrected below.

    After many years since THE Bubba administration, the chicom’s hacking and outright purchase of U.S. military technology is finally catching them up to us. Only question NOW is when and where will they first operationally employ their new toys.

    Some guesses:

    - Taiwan takeover
    - N. Korea control/stabilization after KJU regime vacuum
    - South China Sea claim dispute with any of many countries

    I still do not get the full story. That said, this was an interesting read and it goes way back before the dolts on the internet left (mediots, DUmmies, etc.) attributed the connection between Pepe and The President to some neo-Nazi Russian alien right-wing conspiracy against the hildebeast.

    I stopped watching MS-ESPNuts when Stephen Smith (diminutive black guy with big mouth) skewered Tebow for praying in the field while excusing black players who invoked God in any fashion. His wacky logic was that the black players were legit and belonged in the NFL hence they were allowed. Smith has made many outrageous comments with racist tones against non-blacks. I wrote to MS-ESPNuts with no replies yet they fired Rush over one comment that was not racist. I’m done with them. If I cannot find the event I want to see live elsewhere, I find it on stream later without care for the final result.

    Yes indeed, the mob mentality which unites American leftists will likely prevent singletons from straying. They individually fear both physical (lethal injury) and/or public humiliation from fellow travelers. Question is, if they dump her, who has enough charisma/control/credibility among them to lead the rebellion against clinTOON Inc?
