It is unfair, but not necessarily incorrect. I do agree that the military should be focused on victory and not bathroom politics, and in usual Trump fashion this is rather ham-handed but quickly and decisively resolves this issue.

What amuses me about the debate is that the press is taking a side that only 23% of Americans agree with, and also that the big deal is about a people group being not being allowed to potentially die for their country while there is simultaneously a people group forced to potentially die for their country – which still seems like the more important issue to me.

Unbelievable. How many hot meals do you think we could afford if he skipped his next vacation?

Personal servants.

Just remember that they’re the ones who proposed it.

Unsurprising.

Take away all federal grants.

Overseas soldiers.

He boasts about in more private settings.

The Navy’s Next Destroyer

Very cool. Increasing automation is definitely the future of the Navy.
