West Point Going Down the Tube
#1
I recruited high school candidates for Canada's equivalent to West Point from 1981 to 1985 and visited the Royal Military College several times during my time in recruitment. Canadian military college cadets are subject to a similar honor code as West Point cadets. The best way to ruin a country's military is by developing mediocre officer corps. This is exactly what Obama and company have done.

The true purpose of democracy is not to select the best leaders — a clearly debatable obligation — but to facilitate the prompt and peaceful removal of obviously bad ones.

My guess is that these last four years are going to come under far more scrutiny than other classes, and the OERs(Officer Evaluation Report) will show this. Also, there is going to be a real backlash to MacDaddy's attempt to make Collectivism perfectly acceptable.

Now, let's see what has been going on at the Naval Academy, and the Air Force Academy. My guess is that they are also in need of a good fumigation. I hope and pray that The Citadel and VMI are not part of this 'dumbing down' of the military education system.

It's a funny thing. The inroads made by the Left in academia and in many other social norms happen all the time without anyone realizing what they are doing. It's been going on forever.

During the Vietnam War, I wanted to go to Annapolis in the Marine Corp. side, and went through many tests and exams. In my area, most medicals had to go through Fort Wayne, and many personnel there were pure bonkers. I wanted clearance to go, but the medicos were cocksure that everyone who may be drafted wanted to be classified 4-F. I had to fight tooth and nail for basic acceptance. They would let the cannon fodder through easy enough - but any kid who they thought had potential had to be saved against his own inclination. I was perfectly 1-A with 20-20 vision, but this one damned doctor said one eye was stronger than the other and the Marine side had to pass 1,000 hrs solo piliot hours in a jet fighter. My alternate selection was going in on the Naval side and had thick bottle-glass lenses and was allowed through.

I ended up at U of M and saw that doctor again in the University medical staff, and learned what a Leftist moron the guy was. Changed my life, for sure.
