Wrong on Women Warriors (The new policy to place women in combat units is a mistake)
Posted on Thursday, January 24, 2013 9:33:07 AM by SeekAndFind
We have apparently arrived at the Golden Age, free from strife and the threat of foreign enemies. Little else can explain so gratuitous a decision as to place women in combat units. The downsides to such a policy are legion and obvious; the only reason to pursue it is to placate feminism’s insatiable and narcissistic drive for absolute official equality between the sexes.
Then during the late 1960s, radical feminists encouraged young women to set aside their traditional family roles as homemakers, helpmates, child nurturers and husband civilizers for something trumpted as much more rewarding.
MSNBC’s new golden girl was in a pickle: If someone sees a black person committing rape or domestic violence, should he report it if it makes black people look bad?
I recently read a piece on NWV with a promising title about why women should not be placed in combat. “Ah,” I thought, at last some sense will be brought to the subject. But I was severely disappointed because the weakest argument possible was used as a justification for keeping women out of combat:
That they might be captured, tortured, and used as hostages! I’m sorry, but that is not the reason. Men can also be captured, tortured, and used as hostages in wartime too; and they have been. Just look at Israel’s prisoner exchanges with Hamas and others, for a quick example of the anguish that any country goes through to recover even one of its own.
No, the reasons women should not be allowed in combat are many and they are diverse. And note that I use the plural, not the singular, form for “reason.” This article will not win me many friends, it will fly in the face of conventional “pop” wisdom (especially those CGI films that show super-strong women able to do anything), and it will seem as if I am being sexist, but it is reality. It is the way things really are, not how we merely hope or wish that they can be. We can deny reality for a while – as we have been doing for so long with our national economy – but it will always, always eventually catch up with us. Such is the case with the current fad to allow women to play combat soldier in our military.
We know why you joined the force. You wanted to protect the weak and the innocent from the strong and vicious. You desired a society where justice is done, the guilty punished. You abhor the use of violence against women and children. You wanted to stand for good, protect those who need protection. Are you doing this now?

Yes Politico, it’s amazing what a bunch of socialists and anarchists responsible for violence, sexual assaults, rapes, murder, suicides, disease and riots can accomplish when they have the media on their side.
Recently I wrote an article about women’s tendency to support statist candidates. As my emails attest, it was met with quite a positive response. Yet, not surprisingly, there was also a very predictable one: complaints about generalizations. For instance, one respondent wrote that she was tired of the “all men are this and all women are that” tripe.
Of course, people only complain about generalizations when they hear one they don’t like and, perhaps, are unable to refute. But you can rest assured that they generalize just like anyone else; in fact, generalizations are woven so seamlessly into our thinking and discourse that we often utter them unthinkingly as a matter of course. Just consider how often people say things such as “Why do men never ask directions?!” or “It drives me crazy when guys flip from one TV channel to another rapid-fire!” But do all men do these things? I always ask directions and hate the habit of using a remote control like a musical keyboard. Nevertheless, I’ll be the first to admit that those generalizations are clearly valid.

“Man Burns Self To Death At Courthouse In Protest
By Jim Quinn
The specific reasons are individual to him, regarding a domestic violence arrest and prosecution. But the larger reason he killed himself is that he says the system no longer follows the Rule of Law.
Once you read past the details, he gives a fascinating analysis of the system. He argues for a complete takedown of the Federal Government and starting over from scratch.
He may be an example of what is to come – people throwing themselves violently up against the system in order to bring it down.
It’s fifteen pages. Longer than Joe Stack‘s.
But much shorter than the Obamacare bill.”
In the America I grew up in, I was raised to respect women and protect them. In that regards, there was certainly nothing unusual about my upbringing.My father and mother stubbornly drilled those concepts into my stubborn head.
I was taught to open the door for a woman. While sitting on a bus or in a doctor’s waiting room, I was instructed to give up my seat to a woman. It is a practice I continue today
