Obama wants Marines to wear ‘girly’ hats
The New York Post ^ | 24 Oct 2013 | Jeane MacIntosh

A change to the Marine Corps’ uniform hats could take the hard-nosed Leathernecks from the Halls of Montezuma to the shops of Christopher Street.

Thanks to a plan by President Obama to create a “unisex” look for the Corps, officials are on the verge of swapping out the Marines’ iconic caps with a new hat that some have derided as so “girly” that they would make the French blush.

Perhaps they should wear skirts too.

...”one senior Marine source fumed to The Post”...

Don’t worry, Marine, you will soon be relieved of duty by Der Kommissar soon, like the others who don’t toe the party line.

Apparently the old hats gave the Marines too much protection while they held obamaramadingdongs umbrella in the rain.

As long as we save enough money to continue the unfettered introduction of federal benefits for same sex partners on military bases. We have all the money in the world for that!!

This is what Obunghole considers leadership.

America is in such a sad state thanks to his fundamental change agenda. Some ridiculous potentate will shortly exploit all of this mess, and put us on the coals directly.

It could be Putin who has more moxie in his little finger than this Cupcake has in his whole body.

Thanks Obunghole and those idiots that voted for you; this is on your heads.

“We don’t even have enough funding to buy bullets, and the DoD is pushing to spend $8 million on covers that look like women’s hats!” one senior Marine source fumed to The Post.

Off to the Gulag with you buster! Don't you understand that the Justice Department, IRS and Department of Homeland Security have more than sufficient ammunition for their needs? The USMC doesn't need ammunition. They need to get with the program of fundamentally transforming America.

Wearing a girlie hat is a small price to pay for a continuing paycheck, isn't it?

FYI, anyone who is unclear, it is the dress hat that female marines wear now, just that everyone gets to wear them. So; if this means the uniform goes unisex, does that mean that the skirts go as well as the sensible pumps and nylons as well?

Oh, right, men have to look like women and women get to look like women. It is the unisex way.

Congress are the ones who opened the door to situations like this with their progressive actions over the years to unizex the military and all its functions. Obama is just taking this decades long trend to its illogical extreme.

I think we all know what’s going on here, what the larger agenda is. This is one more step on the slippery slope to downsizing and reducing the effectiveness of our military.

And maybe add a little hip padding to the male Marines’ trousers to effect a more unisex shape for all members of the Corpse.

Just wait until you see the fabulous new barracks all done in new colors like military mauve! Maybe the troops would like furnishings with the retro look. :)

Matter of fact, I always thought the old 1920s cap was far superior to the latter barracks cap!
See the old time pic of Gunny Dan Daly w/his two medals of Honor displayed around his neck!

Politics aside, sometimes headgear is just headgear, although there are those who will just not let a good crisis, etc. go by w/o taking advantage of it!

Not to barge in on the topic, but America needs to make things once again.

Bring back American industry, mostly from China.

We cannot continue to send away American industry.
