Nancy Pelosi called this the “selfie of the year.” The self-esteem selfie of the first four women to make it through Marine infantry training. From Gawker: These women have now definitively proven what fatuous Congressional oldsters for so long prevented other women from demonstrating: the ability to hump 90 pounds of gear over rough terrain [...]
From Cato, of course. This post at Cato, “The Libertarian Case for National Military Service,” reads like satire, but alas, it is not. The author actually writes “freedom isn’t free,” and he thinks that libertarians shouldn’t recoil from the notion of mandatory military service because serving your government masters can be a “pillar of freedom” [...]
The horror of the human casualties of war from the Unknown Soldier Project by David Jay.
This morning I noted that Detroit Int’l Airport has a Freedom Lounge with a sign says “Serving Those Who Serve Us.” It’s a special ‘military only’ lounge for the government’s war enforcers.

An authentic US Air Force unmanned aerial vehicle with display stand. The customer reviews are priceless. Well, that’s because this appears to be a “fake” Amazon page. Though one can barely navigate the waters between ‘real’ and ‘satire’ nowadays without fervent research.

Or so says a bunch of wealthy bastards who feel guilty for not dying for the state. This quote from the article is rather telling: Every successful business person in America “has [...]
The evil Napolitano (as opposed to the good one) speaks to Australians about why they should be aligned and supportive of the US military-industrial-surveillance-security complex. Reader Chris Bieber writes, “Mussolini said the same thing…only in Italian.”
Regarding Lew Rockwell’s post on the website that bears his name: he notes the twist on the definition of terrorism: “Terrorism is a Muslim killing an Israeli, an American, or one of their allies.” But an American, Israeli, or one of their allies killing a “Terrorist” in his own homeland is a hero, a soldier [...]
