To the Editor:

The mass of beings we call our military is in a state of flux that will evolve into an asexual, non-thinking socially and politically correct organization that can determine in a nanosecond whether to use other than lethal force against enemies or citizens who are noncompliant with directions, or whims out of Washington.

Senior officers need not worry, as they will all be general officers if the trend continues. It will be great; company commanders will be colonels, and can aspire to four stars if they stay in long enough to command a division.

They will have to get accustomed to the name change, as a division sounds too harsh; therefore “Unity” will be fielded.

Once the barracks are converted to service hotels with open sleeping arrangements with full handicap access, it is not unreasonable to assume platoon leaders (group counselors) will be lieutenant colonels.

Their tasks will be made easier since they no longer have to dispense condoms, as heterosexual sex will be forbidden.

We did such a fine job “dumbing down” college, we now gender neutralize military training so that all citizens can enter the Army and serve for as long as one likes, regardless of your gender, sexual orientation, physical limitation or ability to pass all those ego damaging tests which sometimes make one sweat.

Let’s finally get this whole experiment right and do away with those awful weapons that intimidate people and make horrific noises, not to mention the damage they do to the salamanders which may be about.

Tanks, now that is another thing altogether. They use lots of fossil fuel, make noises, have huge guns, plus, the stuff they use weights far too much for the average wimp to handle.

Keep in mind, wimps are people, too, and should be able to, “whatever.”

    @@ as heterosexual sex will be forbidden.

    That's what's being worked on at the moment---

    That and will African American females be allowed to keep their heritage type African Hair dos. (The majority have never been anywhere near Africa in order to know, what a true African hair do would look like)
    But anything to cause a problem.


    @ Tanks, now that is another thing altogether. They use lots of fossil fuel, make noises, have huge guns, plus, the stuff they use weights far too much for the average wimp to handle.---

    Plus - Tanks might scare the enemy. DC would have a problem with that.
