New hats for male Marines are nonsense

If I were to ask anyone what the toughest branch of the military is, NINE times out of 10 they would answer “The Marines.” That’s right, leathernecks. First in and last out. The branch you call on when the going gets tough.

But President Barack Obama, showing further disdain for the military, has decided to emasculate male Marines by spending $8 million to get them new sissy hats. Hats that look more like the ones female Marines wear.

Kind of like the communists do. They pride themselves on uniforms that show no differences in rank or sex.

Doesn’t the president have better things to worry about than changing a hat the Marines have had since 1922?
Maybe he should concentrate on the disastrous un-affordable care act or the massive U.S. debt. He mightas well bring back government ketchup testers. At least we knew the viscosity of ketchup. 

Male Marines who pride themselves on their appearance will now look like train conductors. What’s next, man purses?

Now when a Marine walks toward me I am not going to know whether he works for Amtrak and wants to punch my ticket or is a big tough Marine ready to punch some terrorist’s ticket.

Thanks, Mr. President, for spending more of our money on nonsense and something that is certain to be embarrassing for male Marines to wear.

I am a veteran of the Air Force and Navy and I didn’t much care for the white sailor hats the Navy wears, but if I were a Marine I would be irked by being forced to wear a female cover.

To my Marine friends: change branches.
