More and more, I'm so glad son can't be sent off as a 'This will prove I care!' pawn

by these corrupt bastards.

Hillary Clinton calls for more ground troops as part of hawkish Isis strategy.
—The London Guardian, November 19th.
Clinton can’t “conceive” any condition for combat troops in Iraq, Syria.
—CBS, yesterday.

Speaking of corrupt bastards,
President Obama on Monday promoted an official to be his top adviser in the fight against the Islamic State, one he fired from his presidential campaign in 2008 for talking to Hamas.

White House spokesmanpaid liar(there, fixed it) Josh Earnest said Rob Malley, now a senior director at the National Security Council, would be his senior adviser for the counter-Islamic State program. Malley, a Clinton administration alumni, will work closely with Brett McGurk, special presidential envoy for the global coalition to counter the Islamic State, Earnest said.

"She can't pass the tests, but we need more women on the roster, so pass her.  It'll be FINE!"
A firefighter who was allowed to graduate the Fire Academy despite failing physical tests has already gone out on medical leave — just 10 days into the job, The Post has learned.
Probationary firefighter Choeurlyne Doirin-Holder injured herself Monday while conducting a routine check of equipment at Queens’ Engine 308 in South Richmond Hill. Getting off the truck, Doirin-Holder missed a step and landed on her left foot, suffering a fracture, sources said. …
“If you’re going to get hurt in the firehouse checking a rig, what would happen at a fire?” an insider asked.
Silly bugger, the brass don't care about that; she filled various Diversity points, that's what's important.

I have a hard time writing about this, because it pisses me off so much.
"Yes, you want electricity, but we don't want you to have it unless it's green/sustainable/etc. enough to satisfy us.  So we'll teach you how to make a clay firepot, use wood we'd really rather you not burn to fire it, then use more firewood you had to gather to power this gadget which will charge a phone, and the other small electronics we approve you having. 

Powerplant?  Dam?  Lots of electricity?  No, we don't approve that; not only would it not be Green, but it would ruin that primitive village ambiance we so approve of(since we don't have to live in it)!"

...Radical Islam is the ultimate in gender equality, in a way.

The blade against your throat doesn’t care what’s between your legs.

Radical Islam frightens feminists because it makes it just so clear how very privileged, revered, fortunate and favored Western women really are. If and when push comes to shove, feminists are going to have to swallow every hateful word they have ever written about the men in their own societies and plead for their protection. You think ISIS is scary on a satellite feed beaming in from thousands upon thousands of miles away?

Try them on your doorstep.

Because when ATF does it, it's not a problem.  No matter what laws and regulations they break.

1. About the diversity fireperson. She'll never go back to work. She'll get a disability pension and be set for life.
2. The ATF story is a little misleading. It creates the impression that the guy was a Special Agent when he did all that stuff, then was immediately promoted to SAC somewhere as a reward, or to hide his malfeasance. That's not possible. In order to be promoted to SAC, you have to be an ASAC (Assistant SAC) or, in bigger offices, a DSAC (Deputy SAC; in Government service, a Deputy is higher than an Assistant). If he had been a street-level agent, he would have been fired, but ASACs and up can get away with an awful lot. I saw this happen in the FBI, the old INS, the old Customs Service, ICE (the new INS/Customs Service), the old Treasury ATF, and probably a few other places I can't remember. When the U.S. Marshals fired several top managers at one office following a fatal shooting, everyone I knew was shocked and said in their agency it would have been swept under the rug.
The statement that "in private industry, this wouldn't happen, but Government employees are special" doesn't hold water here. It's the same everywhere. There is one set of rules for the peons, and another set of rules for the bosses (or the connected).
