#7576: Soldiers "at all echelons" are kicking over sensitivity training

The military's "top enlisted soldier" is "concerned about the way that some people are looking at the current environment."

Basically, he's all-in on the "anything to the right of Chairman Mao is nazi extremism" standard that the democrats are trying to apply to the military.
Those conducting the sessions wanted "to make sure that military members understand the difference between Seattle and [the Jan. 6 riot in] Washington, D.C.," [the top enlisted soldier] said. "But some of our younger members are confused about this, so that's what we need to go ahead and talk to them about and educate them on, to make sure that they know exactly what they can and cannot do."
"The difference" is that Seattle is some three thousand miles from the Capitol building, and the congressfilth aren't effected by violent marxist insurrection on the west coast of the country, but are effected when a few hundred citizens have the unmitigated gall to enter their building without permission, ostensibly in protest of the outright theft of a presidential election. The anfita/blm insurrection was long, violent, and destructive, but communist; the capitol business was short and nonviolent (except for the cops killing a protestor), none of the citizens were armed, and property damage was minimal, but not communist.

The fact that this communist says this kind of shit right after claiming that the military is "apolitical" is not surprising. One thing that the left does is to assume that its views are the default, and that any deviation from there is "being political". So, the idea that you should be less white, that's not political, but the idea that we should judge people by the content of their character is--and further, "extremist".

So antifa and blm are not "political", but MAGA is. You see?

And with a left-wing totalitarianist government trying to seize total power over the country, the military has to be on board with it, because otherwise you get a situation similar to Myanmar, where their military has stopped the marxist coup in its tracks. You need to read between the lines with that one but the fact that an organization backed by George Soros has had its assets frozen and people arrested is a big sign of who the military has taken action against. And you know damned well that if that situation there was leftists seizing power, the international press would not be wetting its pants about how awful things are there.

It would be interesting to know how many total vaccinations were done in the UK. 534 dead and 330,063 with serious side effects, though, does not convince me that I should take the thing.

Also, this. Especially points 2 and 3.

Now, if you want to give me a vaccine which confers actual immunity and keeps me both from getting and transmitting the thing, we can talk. But I'm not shoving junk in my body that will only lessen the symptoms; if I get the thing, give me hydroxychloroquine or ivermectin to do that.

Well, so it's spring now. The weather for the next week is rainy and low 60s (according to the forecast) and I've just discovered that the Jeep's windshield is leaking, right over the driver's seat. It is not a big leak, but that will change.

I don't want to buy another vehicle, but I've had this one almost fourteen years and it is getting just a little long in the tooth, and the rust issues are starting to accumulate. I keep thinking about what I can do to fix it, rather than replace it, but the simple fact is that I'd still need something to drive to work while fixing the Jeep...and if I'm buying something to drive, why not simply replace the truck? I've put over 130,000 miles on the thing since buying it in 2007 (for $5,000) and I've gotten a hell of a lot more than my money out of it. I never would have thought that possible before I had this truck, and that explains why Jeeps are so popular; but getting a new truck means not having this one and I like this one. *sigh*

And thanks to "Cash for Perfectly Usable used cars" there are very, very few examples out there of Jeeps from 2010-ish. I do want another Jeep, but I don't want to pay thirty thousand dollars for a used Wrangler, and I don't really want to buy a new Cherokee (which would be about the same price).

What I want is to find another deal like I did with this one, something in fair condition and not too expensive with a lot of life left in it. And while I'm wishing, please include a winning PowerBall ticket....
