Land of the Sheep and the Home of the Knave: Where Our Fearsome Military Aren’t Allowed to Post on Social Media Because Our Genius Leadership Is Afraid of the “JV Team”

Gruntessa and I just got back from a super secret graduation ceremony on the left coast where we got to watch newly minted killing machines being cranked out at places like MCRD and Coronado, where the control tower at Halsey Field (pictured below) watches over sailboats and endless Blackhawk helicopter training flights alike.

Of course, we can’t talk about it, because our Harvard educated overlords think it’s a great idea to train the most effective fighting force in the world, make them killing machines, teach them to fear nothing, and then tell them they can’t mention any of it on Facebook for fear that some pimply-faced, teenage ISIS recruit might do a camel drive-by and hurt them.

I don’t know.  I’m just nostalgic for a time when our leaders weren’t such pussies, you know?  I’d prefer to allow our young fighting men to have a little pride.  But, anyway, in token obedience to that command, I’ll just show some random photos of random dudes we saw in San Diego.  No relation or anything.

But one last rant before I go.  This particular random Marine private, above, who may or may not be any relation, really wanted some good Mexican food after losing about as much weight in boot camp as your average Auschwitz resident.  Eager to grant him that wish, we took him to a snazzy place on the water down by the harbor called Coasterra, which is Spanish for “Coastal Dirt.”  The food was good, but there was a big sign stating that, “due to the avocado shortage,” there would be no fresh guacamole or avocado dishes.

That’s awesome.  The great state of California, America’s bread basket, the Avocado State killed all their avocado trees (and almond trees and vineyards, etc.) by denying the Central Valley farmers water in order to pretend to save a smelt fish.  Well done, hippies.  Nice going Jerry Brown.  You blame it on the drought, but there’ve been droughts in CA throughout history.  Your real problem is the Democrat crime family infestation.  Without guacamole, the tide of immigration from the south might turn the other way, but that won’t solve anything while Democrats maintain their stranglehold on the state, and life continues to suck there.  The rest of us will just get our avocados from Mexico.

    Congratulations to you and to the Corps. The newest Marine has my admiration and my best wishes for fair wind and following seas.

    As to the progs — well they need to be sent packing. They could move to Mexico.

    Oh my GOODNESS, Grunt, (“I’m just nostalgic for a time when our leaders weren’t such pussies”), I can’t believe that you, Donald John Trump and Ralph Peters use the same thesaurus! (Donald’s middle name was given to him because his mom KNEW he was going to be a “potty” mouth.) My delicate sensibilities are SHATTERED with your brusque vernacular, I don’t know HOW I will be able to function normally. Well, I’ve got to go look at some autopsy photos and pictures of Janet Reno in a micro-bikini, (though I can’t imagine there will be much difference).

    Congrats to the handsome young man and his mama and papa. And may God always keep him safe.

  4. It’s been reported that the mexicans are destroying the forest and area where the Monarch butterfly spawns to plant avocados. So eating mexican avocados is helping destroy the Monarch butterfly. Nice story, by the way.

    • Thanks. I hadn’t heard that, and it would be bad, if true. Actually, I only picked Mexico quasi-randomly. We get many of our winter avocados from Chile and New Zealand, and they grow pretty much anywhere semi-tropical where there’s water.

    Congrats Grunt! Job well done to your son and his parents!

    Damned if that young stranger didn’t turn into a hell of a *man*. He really looks good.
    Tell him I said hi.

    • Thanks, Sol. Already done. He appreciates your kind words. Unfortunately, he did change in one way, in the wrong direction. He had been an enthusiastic 1911 man, and he was hassling me to get a proper .45. Suddenly, after going through MCRD, he favors Sig Navy SEAL sidearms. Get this: In .40 caliber! I don’t know where I went wrong… He may be lost to the Squid side for good.

    Congrats to that handsome young Marine, and his parents! Blessed be. oorah!
