#3904 Another Food for Thought

Posted by Jack, but thanks go to Peggy for the find….

This was attributed to Trey Gowdy, but that was incorrect according to my sources.  Whoever wrote it had some good thoughts and thus its re-published here.  

The Military uses prejudice regularly and consistently to deny citizens from joining for being too old or too young, too fat or too skinny, too tall or too short.  Citizens are denied for having flat feet, or for missing or additional fingers.

Clearly annoyed by the reporter’s attempt to trap him with the question….he went on to explain:  “By the way, poor eyesight will disqualify you, as well as bad teeth.  Malnourished?  Drug addiction?  Bad back?  Criminal history?  Low IQ?  Anxiety? Phobias?  Hearing damage?  Six arms?  Hear voices in your head?  Self-identification as a Unicorn?  Need a special access ramp for your wheelchair?

Can’t run the required course in the required time?  Can’t do the required number of push-ups?  Not really a ?morning person? and refuse to get out of bed before noon?  All can be legitimate reasons for denial.”

“The Military has one job:  Winning War.  Anything else is a distraction and a liability.  Did someone just scream ?That isn’t Fair??  War is VERY unfair, there are no exceptions made for being special or challenged or socially wonderful.

YOU must change yourself to meet Military standards…..Not the other way around.

I say again: You don’t change the Military… you must change yourself.  The Military doesn’t need to accommodate anyone with special issues. The Military needs to Win Wars….and keep our Country safe….PERIOD!

If any of your personal issues are a liability that detract from readiness or lethality…  Thank you for applying and good luck in future endeavors.

….any other questions?”

    “The Military uses prejudice regularly ….”

    Yet another effort to mischaracterize (i.e., lie) about a situation. What is it that Chris has been trying to explain to you for the past 20 years? … the Straw Man Argument … that’s what I’m thinking of.

    The military has “standards” and “requirements”, i.e. things you gotta be able to understand, and do, in order to participate.

    Now, should it come to pass that a female can carry 100 pounds in 100 degree heat all day … she meets a standard, a requirement, and to deny her admission to the marines for some other, and prejudicial reason … is crummy. And we are not going to do it anymore. Get over it.
