Pull ups was a requirement as well and women do push ups on their knees and pull-ups with their feet on the ground everywhere else in the military so if they did it to the men's standard like I said "kudos".
However, the pt test is one of MANY trials and it is much harder on those who are airborne qualified because they all have to prepare for patrols with presumption while others are resting.
All I am saying is that if they follow the exact same standards and protocols and are subjected to the same AAR's and votes the men are then they made it.
But when you operate on two hours sleep a night, not all at one time, have one crappy meal a day and walk endlessly for weeks, you would be surprised how seemingly simple an insignificant advantage can push you over the edge.
With regard to recycling.... Again, if they went ALL the way back to the beginning of the phase like the men do then I am ok with that. Lots of guys don't make it the first time.
I was lucky 9/92...

The idiots who disrupted the event have no understanding of history. Bernie Sanders is a white supremacist? He marched with Dr. King, you morons!

This whole issue would be so easy to fix. National ID card, issued to everyone free of charge, and it has your picture on it. If we can’t afford that, we’re more screwed than I thought. It would make this whole thing go away.

Pretty much any “hey check this out!” story on the Blaze was stolen from Reddit. Huffpo does it too…

This is just a guess, but there have been several studies that have shown that money can buy happiness, but only up to 70,000 dollars. After that it won’t make you any happier. Basically that’s the number where all your material needs are met and you aren’t worried about bills.

Despite my feelings about the disturbing things in those videos, I’m a little uncomfortable with the idea being presented here. “If you’ve done nothing wrong you have nothing to hide” is a mantra used by fascists of all stripes.
It does not follow. The facists by their nature were not interested in the welfare of anyone. They were not interested in freedom or good.

That said, the Spanish did destroy a wealth of ancient history when they burned all of the Aztec codex. So much history, gone forever. Same as when the Muslims destroyed the great Library of Alexandria. Can you imagine what we could have learned from either of those?

Rand is hawkish and lies? How exactly is Rand Paul hawkish? He’s almost an isolationist. Don’t you know anything about American Libertarianism? And what is he lying about exactly?

Man it sucks that I have to tell my cousin and his wife they have to get a divorce. See, they tried to have kids and found out they can’t. So their marriage is now null and void since they can’t create a family.

gregorio57: Is that what you’re hoping for? 2% of the population died during that war, over 6 million people in today’s numbers. Sound like a good time to you?

Downvote ScottBytes all you want, but they DID base their decision on equal protection. What’s true for one group has to be true for all groups. That’s the constitution folks. So you can either ban marriage altogether, or pass an amendment to the constitution.

Isn’t that true on both sides? I’ve noticed that conservatives like to use the term “activist judges” whenever it disagrees with them but not when they agree with the decision, like in the Hobby Lobby decision.
I don't like what I'm seeing with our government in general regardless of the once every two decades when something goes the way I think it should. I'd like to see a return to a Constitutional government. One where our checks and balances operate as they should. And that doesn't mean things will go more the way I think they should. But to be an actual nation of laws rather than a fake nation of laws would be refreshing not to mention put us back on sustainable paths.
They are called "Activist Judges" when they go against the Constitution. The Constitution is "The Law of the Land". period. The Hobby Lobby decision was protecting religious freedom described in the Constitution, Hence there was nothing Activist about that decision.
However, when the court validates the ACA because it is a tax, yet the Dems and Obama swore up and own that it was NOT a tax (they had to do that to get it passed), that is creating something that wasn't there, hence the proper use of "Activist".
No, conservatives use the term “activist judges” when the decision is based upon social engineering and not on the Constitution. When the justices actually base decision on the ConstItution, such as they did in the Hobby Lobby case, they’re not being social activists.

Since they argued the decision on the basis of equal protection, it would seem to me that the action Congress COULD take is to get government out of the marriage business altogether. I would be fine with that. And if they want to replace the concept of legal marriage with a concept of legal civil union for all, I would be fine with that too.

No, I do it for free…because I don’t much care for racist stormfront wannabes. Also, Hitler was a loser, get over it.
