A change to the Marine Corps’ uniform hats could leave hard-nosed Leathernecks looking a lot less macho.
According to the New York Post, President Obama’s plan to create a “unisex” look for the Corps has officials on the verge of swapping out the Marines’ iconic caps with a new hat that some have derided as so “girly” that they would make the French blush.
“We don’t even have enough funding to buy bullets, and the DoD is pushing to spend $8 million on covers that look like women’s hats!” one senior Marine source fumed to The Post. “The Marines deserve better. It makes them look ridiculous.”
The thin new hats have a feminine line that some officials think would make them look just as good on female marines as on males – in keeping with the Obama directive.
Just because Obama is a girly man, doesn’t NOT mean he can pussify the Marines. I repeat…

Veterans first fought America’s wars, then they fought the National Park Service over White House-ordered closures of war memorials because of the partial shutdown of the federal government.
Now they’re developing a response to President Obama’s “war” against them: A rally.
The Million Vet March on the Memorials will be held Sunday, Oct. 13, at 9 a.m. Eastern at the World War II memorial on the National Mall, the location where rangers under orders from the White House tried, unsuccessfully, to prevent vets from visiting in recent days.
The announcement said the group Special Operations Speaks is organizing the rally because the Obama administration “is using the government shutdown as an excuse to keep our veterans from acknowledging the debt owed to them and their predecessors.”
“This is unforgivable. It is also unjustified, as no taxpayer funds are spent by keeping these shrines open. We will open them ourselves, if that’s what it takes,” said the group, founded by former Navy SEAL Larry Bailey.
The behavior of the liar in chief, his lackey dimwits in Congress, and let’s not forget about his lapdogs in the media, has been, to say the least, abhorrent! They’re playing with people’s lives, and not a one of them give a happy crap!
They paid the ultimate price serving their country — but their government can’t spare a cent to cover their funerals.
The stooges on Capitol Hill added insult to tragedy Tuesday when it was revealed that the families of four soldiers and a Marine who were killed in Afghanistan have not received a $100,000 “death gratuity” because of the government shutdown.
The cash is meant to cover interment, flights and other expenses tied to the servicemembers’ ultimate sacrifice. It is usually wired within three days.
So now, these families have to come up with the money that is OWED them by the government to take care of their loved ones transport and internment? Are you FREAKIN’ kidding me? Oh, but Obama has no problem keeping his golf course open! Or paying EXTRA park police to shut down areas that are OWNED by the American people!
He blocks Honor Flight vets from seeing THEIR memorial, but allows damn criminal invaders to have a rally on the NATIONAL Mall, that is verboten to CITIZENS!
Yeah…I’m more than just a little pissed off! I don’t wish ill on anyone, normally, but I pray God will give these pigs their just due!
If you can get to D.C. (I wish I could), stand with our vets! Do not let the dictator win!!
It’s been quite a day, both personally, and politically. I’m in Corinth, again, for another test very early in the morning. It just makes more sense to already be close so I don’t have to wake up at 3 or 4 in the morning to drive an hour to get here in time. Right? Yep! We all know how much I hate mornings. Heh. There’s some other stuff going on, but that’s enough of that!
And yes, it looks like it’s a video day, doesn’t it! Hey! Is it my fault that everyone I subscribe to posted videos today?
Politically? Well, I’m sure we’ve all noticed that the world didn’t stop spinning because Harry Reid is a dipwad, and shut down the non-essential government crap. Ok, I’m going to ask the question others have asked, that is so obvious, it’s down right absurd…. If they are non-essential, why the hell have we been paying them to the tune of a $17 TRILLION deficit? In case you are an idiot or a liberal, which in my opinion, are the same thing, non-essential means….NOT NEEDED! Imagine how much money could have been saved it these areas had been shut down a LONG time ago!
Apparently, the jackwagons in D.C. think that the parks, etc. that WE pay for, were supposed to be closed down. Well, some World War II veterans from Mississippi didn’t much care for that idea at all!
The brave men and women that have given their all are being given the shaft by the Democrats, led by none other than the Botox Queen herself, at the instruction of none other than the so called President of the United States! It’s ok to pay the current military, but our veterans aren’t important enough to Pelosi to allow a bill that would fund their needs. I have a five lettered word for her…and it’s not witch. I have a few words for him too, but since I”m a lady….
Twitchy has a few more examples here. Just think…men and women put their lives on the line, come home, bruised and broken, if they come home, and the pretender in chief refuses to sign a bill that would keep their benefits, which they EARNED, and this is how their own government treats them? Oh, I don’t FREAKIN’ think so!!! Don’t think these pigs are evil? Think again! Evil personified!!
Now, before I get even more ticked off, I’m going to relax, and hope I can get to sleep at a reasonable hour so I can wake up to get stabbed in the gut. If I drank…..
I hope and pray this verdict will bring some peace to Nidal Hasan’s victims and their families. But if we ever hope to defeat the ongoing threat from radical Islamism, we need to start by calling this terrorist attack on our armed forces by its name. Hiding behind “workplace violence” and excluding evidence on Hasan’s pursuit of jihad will not make terrorism go away or properly honor the American heroes who were slain at Fort Hood on November 5, 2009.
STOP SHAFTING OUR MILITARY HEROES!! He murdered 14 human beings in the name of that fake god of his. This was an ACT OF TERROR, perpetrated by a raving lunatic, member of the military, who SHOULD have been in a loony bin a LONG time ago. Political correctness murdered those 14 people!
ASHWAUBENON, Wis.—As the Humvees rolled slowly through the city’s streets, children waved and others stopped to watch as soldiers dismounted their vehicles to meet with civil authorities and assess the local infrastructure.
For three days in August, 22 Civil Affairs soldiers of the 432nd Civil Affairs Battalions, Charlie and Delta Companies, traveled in their High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles, or “Humvees,” 37 miles north of their headquarters here to the small town of Gillett.
Once there, they began conducting a realistic training exercise. Other soldiers assigned to the headquarters element remained behind at the unit’s location to operate the tactical operations center.
Do these idiots in the Army really think we are so stupid we can’t figure out what the hell is going on?
I’ve been on this planet, in this America, for almost 62 years, I have never seen or read anywhere in our history (Except 1765-1776) when troops took over a small town. This isn’t “Training” this is practice for when they do it for real!!!!
I have gone through many of the so-called, “Urban Warfare Drills” that have been going on around the country for the last ten years. In every single one of them, one of the main objectives was to secure one or more banks. In one video the person filming even comments on how the helicopters were repelling soldiers onto the roof of the federal reserve bank.
The most disgusting part in these exercise’s is the response of the people. Totally clueless, the news anchors even comment on how nice it is to have troops carrying machine guns, closing off streets and searching peoples cars.
WAKE UP SHEEPLE, this ain’t no drill, this is getting you ready for the real deal!!
Enough ranting, just got home and I have to work again tomorrow.
We’ll one more rant, I am getting sick and tired of seeing poor slobs on the side of the interstates (with three or more state troopers cars lined up behind them, lights flashing) with their stuff scattered all over the shoulder getting searched. It doesn’t matter, young and old, nice cars, crappy cars, people in business clothes or blue jeans and tee shirts. One thing is always the same though, no matter which state I’m in, is the cops; Shaved heads, dark, dark, blue uniforms, fingerless gloves, with more equipment strapped on than a soldier would carry on a three day recon into the bush.
This isn’t America anymore.
Anyway, the occupation of Gillet WI reminded me of the movie, “Red Dawn.” The original with Patrick Swayze. This WI takeover with the corralling of the local mayor etc. is very similar to the Russian/Mexican takeover of the fictional town in the movie.
This man speaks the truth. I’m a truck driver, and I see this kind of crap every time I go out and drive around the country. Two weeks ago, on a Sunday, just north of Indianapolis I saw two of those huge Humvee like vehicles with DHS painted on the sides towing boats (at least 24 footers, cigarette style ocean racers). The boats were painted a dark gray camouflage just like the vehicles. The boats were covered but they had large grills on the back end, for what, I don’t know.
There has been an increase in military equipment moving on the interstates, either on flatbeds or convoy’s. Equipment storage at National Guard armories is increasing. This time not desert camo but green camouflage, the kind needed in a North American Continent.
Yes…while Egypt burns itself to cinders, Obama is recovering from his trip to South Africa with a vacation at the very upscale Martha’s Vinyard. The man HAS to recuperate from all those vacations, y’know! And his highest priority is to be on the links, so we must fault him for his incoherent remarks!
Just last month, Jay Carney’s press briefing pretty much said, word for word, much of the what the POTUS said in his remarks. He also stated:
The United States is not aligned with, nor is it supporting any particular political party or group. We remain actively engaged with all sides, and we are committed to supporting the Egyptian people as they seek to salvage their nation’s democracy. But we have been clear that these decisions belong to Egyptians.
Really? We don’t take sides? Seems to me that Obama was all excited about his buddies, the Muslim Brotherhood, taking over the country. Granted my memory isn’t what it use to be, but calling that ‘coup’ a democratic election had to be a joke! When you suppress voters, that are not of your muslim persuasion, I wouldn’t call that a ‘democratic election. All we want is voter ID. What they want is something that in no way resembles a democracy. Implementing Islamic (sharia) law is NOT democratic!
The violence against Christians has been on the rise, but I doubt you’ll find an accurate number of those murdered anywhere in the media. I did a cursory search, and found a number of different incidents, the most recent, the murder of a Coptic priest. Why doesn’t the administration speak out about this violence? I don’t see any condemnation of the murder of innocents, just the killing of so called peaceful protestors, that are NOT peaceful at all. We aren’t stupid. We KNOW who started the whole mess. It’s the same people who are so violent, they murder and mutilate women, often, their own family members.
Are there even any Jews left in the country? Possibly a hundred or so. They were run out, or killed a while ago. I’m surprised any still remain, considering the way Jews, and Christians, are treated by the Muslims. Did you know that Egypt use to be a predominately Christian country? This is what you get when Muslims take over. We’re seeing it many European countries today.
Finally. Four years after Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan walked into the Soldier Readiness Processing Center at Fort Hood, Texas, and perpetrated the bloodiest massacre ever on an American military base, the self-confessed jihadist’s court martial proceedings began this week. Have you forgotten?
Americans obsessed over the O.J. Simpson, Casey Anthony and Jodi Arias trials. Gun-control lobbyists turned Newtown, Aurora and Tucson into national awareness-raising, fundraising and legislation-promoting campaigns. But where are the celebrity lobbyists and high-profile advocates for the victims of bloodthirsty Muslim vigilante Nidal Hasan?
The White House, which downplayed the terrorist mass murder as “workplace violence,” exacerbated national apathy for his evil acts. Our soldiers deserve better. Here are three facts you’ve probably forgotten — or never knew — about the Fort Hood terror spree.
—Fourteen victims fell on Nov. 5, 2009, not 13. Thirteen of our U.S. military personnel died in cold blood at the deployment center. But the death toll was actually 14. Pvt. Francheska Velez, 21, was pregnant when Hasan shot her during the first round of gunfire. At a military Article 32 hearing in 2010 (analogous to a civilian grand jury hearing), a survivor of the Fort Hood shootings testified that Velez cried out, “My baby! My baby!”
War On Terror: The jury has been selected and the trial date set for the jihadist accused of 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 of attempted premeditated murder acting, as he says, in defense of the Taliban.
Army Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford has not received a phone call from Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson. Nor does the African-American veteran who was shot seven times by Maj. Nidal Hasan at Fort Hood expect to. He is merely relieved that nearly four years after the massacre at the Army base in Texas, a jury has finally been selected and a trial date has been set.
Thirteen people, including a pregnant soldier, were killed and 32 others shot Nov. 5, 2009, at the Killeen facility during Hasan’s rampage against soldiers being processed for deployment to Afghanistan. Hasan has said he did it in defense of the Taliban, a self-admitted act of terrorism on behalf of a foreign entity.
One would expect that when a self-proclaimed “soldier of Allah” shouting “Allahu Akhbar” opens fire on dozens of American citizens and soldiers, killing and maiming as many innocents as he can, it would have been called an act of terror. One of the great scandals of the Obama administration has been its shameful designation of the massacre as “workplace violence.”
There are a LOT of things that are pissing me off lately, but this one really takes the cake.
Thank you for all the support from everyone here at move america forward. On behalf of our hosts, Governor Mike Huckabee, Melanie Morgan, Larry O’Connor, Debbie Lee, all of our staff, and most of all our troops on the front lines, thank you for your support!
Although we did not reach our goal of $400,000, we got close with $321, 041. While we would like to have reached our goal, we have accomplished something admirable and provided our troops with true, meaningful support.
Seriously??? Our troops have been pretty much abandoned by that so called ‘commander in chief’, and WE, as Americans, who enjoy what few freedoms we have left because of those who are still fighting and dying, can’t come up with a $25 donation? Are you freakin’ kidding???
Since we do WE abandon our heroes? I realize that those a$$wipes in D.C. are doing all they can to put us in the poor house, and destroy our country with their criminal crap, but that doesn’t mean every single one of us can’t scrape together a few bucks for those who put their lives on the line every day! If I can do it, and we pretty much ARE in the poor house thanks to that useless POS that spends MILLIONS partying on our money, then every single one of you can do it too! This is embarrassing, to say the least, and shameful!!

I mean it! NOW! And give a small token back to those who give so much!! NOW!
This should have been posted yesterday, but is appropriate EVERY DAY. My most sincere apologies to The Bunker!! Be sure to watch the video at the bottom!
A Legacy of Shoulders
by The Bunker
Memorial Day for me is a day of memories. I have been to the Manila American Cemetery. I have visited Cabanatuan Philippines, the site of the Japanese prison camp that held the survivors of the Bataan Death March. I have snorkeled in the ocean waters surrounding Subic Bay Philippines and seen the wrecks that are scattered along the shore. I have listened to the stories of the old man we called, “Pops” who was our apartment’s caretaker. As a young man he witnessed his parents being shot by the Japanese and his sister slaughtered as a Jap ran a bayonet through her stomach. He then ran for his life to the surrounding jungle hillsides and joined the Philippine resistance. Then, there are other memories of my own brief encounter with war.
There is one memory that makes me feel proud and ashamed all at the same time. It happened on a trip to Cabanatuan.
From 1972 until 1974 I was stationed at the Naval Air Base at Cubi Point part of the Subic Bay Naval Base. My squadron also had a detachment in DaNang Vietnam. The Grandmother of one of my buddies was sponsoring a young girl at a school in Cabanatuan. She had sent some packages for the girl to my friend and asked if he could deliver them to the school and meet the young student. To make a long story short, we grabbed two more friends and made the journey.
Our original intent was to get to the school, deliver the packages, shake some hands and then head for the nearest bar. Hey, we were sailors! It didn’t work out that way at all.
I really detest Monday holidays. I’m of the mind that the original day that was set aside for such tributes should stay where they are, but alas…the gubmint wanted their 3 day weekends, so there you have it. What is right is seldom what the gubmint does.
