    726 sexual assaults total against both sexes.

    Yeah those bad ol' 'liberals' pushing to end separate race based units in the military. Pushing to end the prosecution of gays in the military- they have served proudly and honorably for centuries. Now to allow women the chance to advance in a career field that includes duty at sea. What would the Cons have the Navy do, keep the females on shore typing and being nurses?

    The excuse a woman can unbutton a few buttons or wear a 'Polly push-up bra' and gain career favor attacks the NCO corps of the Navy. It says the Navy lacks the basic professionalism and basic discipline needed if war was to break out. (It also ignores the brown noser male trying to curry favor)

    Doesn't fly.... or perhaps a better term... doesn't swim....
    1. You may be missing a key link; it might very well be that he doesn't blame anyone, it's just that for him "liberals" aren't "people". Which would make sense - what with your constant American-flag-burning and freedom-hating, you wouldn't have much time left to be a regular sort of folk.

    2. Plenty of women in the military do flirt with superiors, and some (a smaller number) make themselves available in other venues in order to get promoted. To an extent its just a natural extension of the typical older-man-younger-woman dynamic; as kissinger pointed out, power is an aphrodisiac, and being in a superior position in the military comes with power not mirrored in the civilian world. I don't know if that's an attack on the NCO corps, SNCO's are just as guilty (they have more power).

    Anyone thinking Liberals are not people is delusional, I suppose some wish to live in that world. Some will make excuses, no matter how weak I suppose. (It is funny when someone drags in an instance of Cons behaving badly so many cons distance themselves from that lunatic, but are quick to clump all 'liberals' as flag burners and freedom hating..

    Back in my day it was just the NCO corps- we made no distinction between Senior and the rest of us, and I think you know that. But what you are saying is because a small group- one you can't quantify- supposedly engages in sexual activities to gain rank it should be held against the group- more of that all liberals burn flags and hate freedom crap I see.

    Are you claiming that the basic discipline and professionalism of the current crop of NCOs and that includes SNCOs is substandard and women are gaining rank due to sex?

    Course those same 'superiors' can also lord it over men as well. And again you seem to ignore the brown nosing men who try and curry favor for a fast track.

    So it seems a poor NCO corps causes problems.... is there a news flash in that???

    Lets get one thing straight. I blame Liberals for pushing social experimentation in our Navy. Good men and women are being ruined for that.

    Good men and women don't engage in sexual assault. Hold those who do accountable. Don't blame others.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Considering that the Obama administration has reclassified hospital ships, coastal craft and garbage scows as being part of the Navy's combat fleet to make Obama's Navy appear larger than it really is, women may be restricted to motor launches.

    What's your solution to the problem Navy?

    Regress, and stop women from being able to serve their country?

    Or work to stop rapes in the military by punishing perpetrators and better screening recruits for a predisposition to such behaviour?

    Actually, compared to the rest of the country, it really is very, very small. That is 0.22% of the Navy that has been sexually assaulted. Most of these assaults actually occur when the person is home, in port, not on the actual ship. According to RAINN, there is a person sexually assaulted every 2 min in the US, whereas in the Navy, it really would only be about two every day. And that wouldn't even all be from shipmates, let alone on the actual ships. Plus, sexual assaults happened onboard ships prior to women being allowed on those ships. Men can be sexually assaulted by men, including men who are straight and simply "messing" with their shipmates or hazing.
