The few, the proud, the grammatical

And while I’m here, let me just throw in a soupcon of data: U.S. Military more educated than the population it serves.

Moreover, considering that college leeches out common sense and inserts PC nonsense, along with a substantial dollop of extended adolescence helplessness, I’d be inclined to believe that enlistees who choose the military over college come out of their experience more competent, more knowledgeable, more functional, more useful, and better citizens than the average Ivy League college grad.

    Well, to hear many professors, the poor college dears need guidance and supervision.  Whereas, the military member of the same age is given an assault rifle and the codes to call in an air strike, oh, an a healthy fear of not doing his service proud.

    The Left acts like being smart somehow makes you a better human. It doesn’t.

    Freedom holds a different meaning for those who have cried, sweated and bled to protect it.

    Last night I revisited the great bar scene from “Good Will Hunting” where blue-collar genius Matt Damon utterly destroys a preening first-year grad student by pointing out that he has never had and never will have an original thought. The entitled punk’s comeback is that it doesn’t matter, because years from now he’ll be driving his family on a tony ski trip somewhere and Matt Damon will be the toll taker.
     
    That’s why the Marine’s great rejoinder to Miley Hayes above will go straight over her entitled little liberal head. When all is said and done, she’s a sneery. privileged white girl on her way to accommodation in a Chelsea Clinton-like cocoon, while Austin Turner is lower-class fool with a false consciousness—a toll taker.

    It must be said that the US military is not dedicated to protecting liberty using liberty, even though that would be the ideal form. There is a significant amount of consequences for human nature, in a large organization.
     
    I am sure that recently such problems have become greater in nature, due to cuts in training money, time, PC promoted officers like Casey, and so forth. There is a critical mass that needs to be achieved before an entire unit performs well, and it scales up to the army. What unnecessary casualties and top down policies can do is to attrit the cadre needed to train the trainers. Until we once again have merely a military that looks ready on paper.
     
    Thus those who are likely to listen to military authority to judge what is military quality, the alternative choice is to use independent human decision making to judge the humans in the military machine. It’s not less accurate.
