Stop the Madness

I'm left speechless by the inane stupidity of this:

Too Many Male Warriors Leading

Get this through your politically correct head: The military is NOT  a sociological laboratory or test-bed. It is a critical war fighting machine that requires a certain skill set and the leadership comes from qualification not from gender, ethnicity or sexual preference.
Having military brass that better mirrors the nation can inspire future recruits and help create trust among the general population, the commission said.
They seem to overlook the fact that the military currently is more trusted by the general population than any aspect of our government and most certainly more than the Congress.

Kinda thought this might set you off. I read it and thought Ed is going to be getting a litle pissed. It's good we are not there anymore. We might throw up.

Was it something you learned at the leadership conference?

Yes, more egalitarian drivel.

Maybe if the diversity project works well in the armed services, we can one day have a military that can really do a rousing kumbaya and maybe help with the production of a few episodes of Glee.

The other thing is that the leadership % figures make no sense unless compared against total military and national demographics.

Lies, damned lies and statistics.

Ok, curiosity got the better of me...
Google of US Military Demographics
Sept 2008 with the senior leader numbers quoted in the article beside them to nearest %.
Overall SeniorLeadership White 75% 77%
Female 14% 16%
Black 18% 8%
Other 8% 5% (Hispanic)

For the life of me, I cant see anything bigoted or elitist about that

Ed knows how I feel on this entire report. Its the imposition of quotas. The selection of people based on their genetics and such, not on competence. And we will get a less competent military that is even more politically beholden. Zampolits and all that.

Looking at the ethnic composition of the senior leadership, it strikes me that it probably mirrors fairly closely the color spectrum of college grads 16+ years ago...
