    If a woman meets the same physical standards for combat that a man has to meet then I see no problem with it.

    The rub is that women do not have to meet the same standard as men and yet are put into several of the same rolles, to include verious combat positions.

    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    And that's fine. If the standards of the job require X, then a woman should have to meet X to do the job. If that means only a small percentage of women can actually qualify for combat positions then so be it. The job is important enough that the standards shouldn't be reduced just to let women join. However, there is no reason not to let the few who CAN meet those standards serve.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    If they meet the same physical requirements who cares. The problem is that is not what will happen. Just like police and fire etc their standards will be lower, it is inevitable. So I say no.

    Would you agree there is more than one way to do something?

    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.

    No because women cannot be as strong as men and I don't think so they can combat.
