    Comes to mind ...

    "All hat, no horse!"

    I have a neighbor MGySgt (ret) that I will consult, he looks great in his Blue Dress that he still wears occasionally.

    Change it to Marine Green for regular wear, and white for wear with Dress Blues.

    Man that wears a hat like that ... People know he's not afraid of anything.

    stay safe.

    PIC kills me!

    Long standing proud cover of the Marines shows stern looking Marine male, and proud feminine looking female Marine female. Proposed new cover show stern looking Female Marine Female and feminine rosy cheek looking male.
    Great draw down tactic, Marine's get out, and potential recruits enter a different branch recruiting office.

    My Great-grand father wore something like that in the first World War. Sadly his Iron Cross, and the story behind it, are the only ways of knowing the truth behind your latter comment, Skidmark. :3 From a design, and purely attractive standpoint, that German-styled hat is damned sexy! Now, if we could get the Marines to wear Pink camo, and the Army to wear sky-blue urban camo! Green, and brown, and black, and tan, and light gray, that's all so mainstream, and over-used. To quote family guy "They'll be looking for that color" regarding the camo.

    If you made military uniforms that flamboyant I think it would ironically tend to decrease the number of LGBT in the services. Besides which, green, brown, black, tan, and light gray play into S&M a lot better. I wonder when waterboarding will become a mainstream kink...

    Also the Q word is apparently wordfiltered. This board must trend very sharply towards people over 50.

    There's probably a union somewhere that donated a ton of campaign cash, and now wants the contract for the new hats.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Probably right, guess I should word it like this. It's amazing the crap people worry about, when there are bigger problems.

    Yup, waste of money for our military members. But for some reason people are viewing this as though the government is paying for the uniform item. Last time I checked, when there is a uniform replacement for the current ones we have, we pay for the uniforms ourselves. Given that the enlisted do get a uniform allowance, it is not for "free".

    Can't balance what hasn't been proposed or approved!
    RIGHTS don't exist without RESPONSIBILITY!
    If one is not willing to stand for his rights, he doesn't have any Rights.
    I will strive to stand for the rights of ANY person, even those folks with whom I disagree!

    The Senate has asked for conferences on the budget 18 times just this year, the House has refused. Isnít it a strange coincidence that budgets stopped being signed when the TGOP took control of the House, thereby stopping any budgets that did not include extremist demands from Paul Ryan and his ilk?

    Its the house that's supposed to do spending bills .... that's why they ignore the senate.

    The budget has to pass the Senate too. By refusing to discuss the budget with the Senate, they are holding up the process.

    Last time Obama even proposed a budget he got a grand total of ZERO votes from the democrats in the House.
    Reid in the Senate has refused to even present a budget for a vote in the senate for the last six years if my memory serves correctly. Continuing resolutions and debt ceiling limit increases are how the gov has been funded!
    Personally, I support the efforts of Rand Paul, Mike Lee, and Ted Cruz. I will continue to do so as long as they continue to support my view of a Constitutionally limited small government based on the rule of law, not the rule of ANY man!
