    “The depravity of man is at once the most empirically verifiable and intellectually resisted argument that we face.” — G.K. Chesterton

    Hate to break it to you, it ain’t just the military.

    The founding fathers, whether or not each was a Christian personally, knew this. So they built into the system limited government, accountability, & checks and balances.
    With respect to military, Congress declares war & has the purse. Executive commands.
    Public is also protected by 2nd & 3rd Amendment.
    2nd: Admitting that even with the safeguards mentioned above an organized militia is necessary. But it is still dangerous to have around, like a not-quite trained (cf. “depravity of man”) pitbull in your yard. Therefore the public (non-militia) needs to be able to arm itself to resist it, if necessary (cf. Bors cartoon).
    3rd: And the pitbull has to stay outdoors; it ain’t house-broke.

    Humans in the military?
    Is there any decent institution into which they will not infiltrate?

    But if you are smart, and you have the courage, you can push them down and stand upon their bloodied faces and raise yourself above them.
    At least, that’s how it works in the outer ring of the seventh circle of the inferno, until a centaur puts an arrow into you.

    That kind of lying also occurs in the State Dept, HHS, Dept of Education, etc. There is nothing enlightening nor informative about today’s cartoon.

    Yes, mighty peculiar that the military is the object of Bors’ attention as it relates to “lying.” And here I thought only politicians routinely lied to us.

    In my 6th grade English class we learned the proper use of the verbs “lie” and “lay” – Chickens lay, people lie.

    So according to certain opinionators (and Presidential candidates), the solution appears to be to write the military a blank check and take everything they say at face value, or else I hate America.

    It’s astounding how some people who treat every other part of the government with disdain- if not red-faced, screaming hatred- give the military (not the troops; there’s a difference) a level of reverence and deference you don’t often see inside a church, let alone outside one.

    It’s been done. It wasn’t very good.
