All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!


Water Under the Bridge

Doesn't JAG have anything better to do?
Deptola and another Marine based at Camp LeJeune were charged last year after video surfaced showing four Marines in full combat gear urinating on the bodies of three dead Afghans in July 2011. In the video, one of the Marines looked down at the bodies and quipped, "Have a good day, buddy."
We send our armed forces to far away places to kill people and then we get mad when they piss on the enemy.  Is pissing on dead people polite, or dignified?  No.  Neither is killing them or waging an undeclared war of over 10 years duration.

The entire point of the USMC is to kill people and break things.  I see no reason to require the Non coms and men to be polite about it, either before or after they do their duty.  If what they do offends the sensibilities of those in Washington, then bring the men home.  Otherwise get over it.
