    Ah, you should have said that the first time. As of right now, they will not. However that likely will change.

    What we have in place are not assumptions. It is a process that has been evaluated and adjusted regularly over decades. They have drawn up mission statements, and task list for these various units and the requirements to get the level of fitness and capability they need to perform the job. These standards were not maliciously set to exclude women, as men that cannot meet these standards are excluded as well.

    Nor did I say they were. I said you may suffer from group think and can't quite see beyond what has always been.

    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.

    Really? My gods that is so easily turned around. Would you want your husband, brother or son to serve in hand to hand combat and live in a foxhole? I would be very worried about anyone who would want their loved one to be in that situation, but I would be proud of any of my children (3 are daughters) who would risk themselves via military service to protect this county and it's people.

    And yes I served my time as well. Remember NP, there are only 2 types of ships out at sea; submarines.....and targets.
