It's about time the army got a grip

Army allows Sikh to keep beard, turban http://www.cnn.com/2009/US/10/28/sikh.us.forces/index.html?iphoneemail

WTF does it matter about a turban and a beard? Without Sikhs, Johnston County would have run out of physicians decades ago.

And my bro's infected redbug in a very delicate place could have been worse.

Yet again, we have the continued case of form over function. It's better to look good than to be good.

I could just spit.

Maybe this nonsense is beginning to fade from the American military, but I really doubt it.

Just look at the caveats layered on that decision.

When it's real, we'll see women in combat and gays in uniform.

What? Women cannot fight? You think that? Peep! I have faced women in the ring. You do not want to underestimate what she can do.

She will hurt you so bad, and that she can do so is because of the way you think! Guess what? She already knows that.

You are doomed at this rate.

And you sure as shootin' do not want to face a troop of ticked off queers with automatic weapons. They will screw up your day before you can make the tea.

Get with the program and grow up, folks! Our hair, headdress, and beard, much less whom we love, does not control how we fight. Our genetalia does not control how we pull triggers.

You're bringing your own limitations to the table, and the result is that you weaken us all.

Good, funny and on-the-money post, Jim.

I especially like the last sentence. Doesn't get any clearer than that, does it?
