Military common sense….says it all
Sorry to intrude…
Thank you for providing this interesting perspective…but first things first…!
Shouldn’t those acting in the best interest of the people be lawful and legitimate public officers? True representatives of the people? Public officers operating on the lawful delegated authority of the people?
Not meaning to be argumentative…But have you considered as the sovereign Americans, we are under no obligation to let anyone into our country unless we grant the specific delegated authority.
As the people we must demand of those, pretending to be public officers…provide us with any evidence these criminal impostors, pretending to be our legitimate government were granted any delegated authority to make such decisions?
If any public officer fails to produce his credentials upon the request of any American, they are not legitimate public officers. I consider such criminal impersonators as impostors… Americans…you got that?

Subject: Military common sense.
Trey Gowdy just said a few things about the military in response to the ban of transgenders. He nails it: Nobody has a "right" to serve in the Military. Nobody. What makes people think the Military is an equal opportunity employer? Very far from it.
The Military uses prejudice regularly and consistently to deny citizens from joining for being too old or too young, too fat or too skinny, too tall or too short. Citizens are denied for having flat feet, or for missing or additional fingers. Poor eyesight will disqualify you, as well as bad teeth. Malnourished? Drug addiction? Bad back? Criminal history? Low IQ? Anxiety? Phobias? Hearing damage? Six arms? Hear voices in your head? Self-identify as a Unicorn? Need a special access ramp for your wheelchair? Can't run the required course in the required time? Can't do the required number of pushups? Not really a "morning person" and refuse to get out of bed before noon? All can be reasons for denial.
The Military has one job. War. Anything else is a distraction and a liability. Did someone just scream "That isn't Fair"? War is VERY unfair, there are no exceptions made for being special or challenged or socially wonderful. YOU change yourself to meet Military standards.. Not the other way around. I say again: You don't change the Military… you must change yourself. The Military doesn't need to accommodate anyone with special issues. The Military needs to Win Wars.
If any of your personal issues are a liability that detract from readiness or lethality… Thank you for applying and good luck in future endeavors. Who's next in line?
