Oh Ferchrissakes!

It’s bad enough that the Food Nazis are sending out inspectors to confiscate little children’s food and humiliating them in front of their peers, now we have the bastard nanny statist meddling swine fucking around with our military too (h/t Jeff G.):

The nutrition education program alerts soldiers that “red” foods like bacon and apple pie should only be eaten rarely, with a warning: “limit intake.” Foods labeled green, however, such as mustard greens, are deemed “premium fuel for the soldier athlete,” “fresh and flavorful” and “nutrient dense.” Soldiers are advised to eat these frequently.

Because nothing helps and feeds a battle-rattle humping trooper more than a heaping helping of rabbit food!

[LTC] Cable represents the U.S. Army Soldier Fueling Initiative, which is remaking dining facilities at Initial Military Training sites across the country. She currently serves as a dietitian and the Chief of the Human Dimensions Division within the Initial Military Training Center of Excellence.

During the panel discussion she advised using the “red, amber, green” system in public schools too.

“My eyes got opened very quickly that it really is a community,” she said, about her visit to Fort Jackson, S.C. seven years ago to observe its dining facilities. “We talk about a village that raises a child.

No, we don’t. Only commie cunts and their retarded followers talk about such nonsense.

How the fuck did that mouth-breathing, knuckle-dragging imbecile ever get her commission? That’s what we want to know. We weren’t aware that they were available from vending machines these days.

Well a community develops a brand new soldier, too. And that’s what we found there.”

“When I got there our dining facilities were typical dining facility type styles, you know, the fried foods, salad bars existed,” Cable continued.

FRIED FOODS, EEEEEEK! Quick, somebody throw some Holy Evian at it!

If you walk into a basic training cafeteria today you will find far fewer fried foods and soda machines have been replaced with “hydration stations,” she explained.

What. The. Fuck. OVER??? “Hydration stations?” Seriously. Tell us that we’re reading something out of The Onion!

“In the military we all kind of know red means, ‘uh oh, there’s problems,’” Cable said. “Amber, middle of the road, we’re doing okay. And green is good to go, all is right. We took that same concept and we applied it to our menus.”

Because, obviously, the same troops who are perfectly qualified to handle, operate and deal out destruction with some of the most advanced technology known to man are just too damn dumb to figure out what food they “ought to” eat without sticking brightly colored labels on it.

Honestly, if we were still in the service and happened to find that flapping cuntmuffin parading her condescending claptrap at our post, we’d be in the brig quicker than you can say “tofu” for pounding a superior officer into an oozing heap of bloody, red meat.

“I had some folks say to me, ‘Well, why on earth did you even include the red ones to begin with?’ Two reasons – one, we’ve got soldiers who have racehorse metabolisms that they needed every calorie I could get into them.

We even have a name for those “soldiers with racehorse metabolisms”. We call them “soldiers”, as opposed to “pencil-pushing, desk jockeying, REMF pogue shitbirds who ought by right to be jettisoned from the back of a cargo plane over Indian Country without the benefit of a parachute.”

You see, they don’t have “racehorse metabolisms”, they just happen to do what you’re obviously unfamiliar with, you parade ground vaudeville “officer” fuckhead, and it’s called “physical labor.” That tends to burn calories. A lot. A lot more, too, than can be easily replenished by a tossed salad with edamame and bean sprouts.

On the breakfast menu oven-fried bacon, sausage gravy, butter, sugary cereal and egg, sausage and cheese sandwiches earn a red label. Assorted low-fat yogurt, oven-fried Canadian bacon, broccoli quiche and cholesterol-free scrambled eggs are deemed “high performance” foods.

“Broccoli quiche?” Things may have changed, we’re sure they have, but in our day even knowing what “broccoli quiche” was, much less having a plate of it in front of you in the mess hall, would earn you a week of finding yourself frequently upside down in a latrine.

What this nation really needs is a full-scale, no-holds-barred, balls to the wall mutiny.

And rope. Lots and lots of rope.

Remember when he told us not to worry because he would make all the decisions? Well we now have had a US debt down grade on his watch that he has blames the entire world for, even ATM machines, tsunami’s in Japan and weather. I’m surprised he hasn’t blamed Mickey Mouse, but give him time. FIVE TRILLION in new debt in 3 years is a record he cannot hide from. His answer is MORE spending and BORROWING, by the way we BORROW 42 cents if EVERY dollar spent, another record.

And lets not forget to cut their combat pay while they are fighting, and let’s impliment a “trial run” for them paying their own insurance premiums in case they are injured serving this Country!. There should NEVER be any person in government who hasn’t served this country in the military because no one better understands what it means to have freedom. Thank you troops! All patriots in this country want to keep you fed, want to keep you well armed, want you to know your health needs will be provided by the country you protect.

    OT, but Olympia Snowe (RINO, Maine) has announced she won’t run for reelection. She says she decided not to run because of the polarization of politics in the Senate. Apparently, she has got enough mail from real Republicans telling her that bending over and spreading cheek for the Democrats is not acceptable behavior any more. If her seat (Senate seat, BC! get your mind out of the gutter!) gets taken by a Democrat, there will be no effective difference in voting patterns by the Maine Seanator, whomever it happens to be.

    Debasing Our Military, One Politically Correct Moment After Another
    By Arnold Ahlert

    At Camp Zama in Japan, the Army ordered combat veterans to wear fake breasts and “empathy bellies,” aka “pregnancy simulators” so they can get a better understanding of how pregnant soldiers feel during physical training. The Pregnancy Postpartum Physical Training Exercise Leaders Course, or PPPT, will be expanded worldwide. Each NCO forced to participate in the program must wear the simulator for one hour. “When they first come in, the males are typically timid and don’t feel they have the knowledge to teach female soldiers,” said U.S. Army Medical Activity Japan health promotion educator Jana York. “However, after three days their confidence rises.”

    The family aspects of the Army? The humiliation of “sensitivity training” is more like it. Yet if making a man feel like a women in order to get formerly pregnant soldiers back into shape is considered a necessity, perhaps it is time for women to “understand” what it is like to be a man enduring physical training. Perhaps they too should be forced to “strap on” as it were to fully appreciate what their fellow male shoulders go through.

    The ongoing attempt to turn our fighting forces into a PC-mandated social engineering project. Again in a better world, someone in the chain of command would be forced to offer a cogent explanation as to how and why wearing fake breasts and fake bellies improves combat readiness. Just as troubling is the fact that no one in the chain of command has seen fit to make an issue of humiliating soldiers for sensitivity sake — which may say more about the Army’s current worldview than anything else.

    NATO Agrees to Prosecutions for Koran Burnings

    2. After the shameful incident by the US soldiers stationed in Bagram, senior NATO and American officials expressed their deep apologies to the Muslim nation of Afghanistan and assured that such incidents will not happen again.

    3. NATO officials promised to meet Afghan nation’s demand of bringing to justice, through an open trial, those responsible for the incident and it was agreed that the perpetrators of the crime be brought to justice as soon as possible.

    If a trial of the American soldiers who authorized the accidental burning of the korans actually happens, well that’s where I get off the Afghanistan campaign bus and become an opponent of the war. I didn’t support the invasion just to see our military being subject to sharia law by a country of benighted savages. And if that’s where we’ve finally ended up at, then it’s exit time and I don’t want to see another drop or dime of precious American material wasted on a hellhole.

    If we want to keep it from becoming another jihadi sanctuary we can keep blowing up people using drones and bombers and I’m thinking a sustained bombing campaign could make the Khyber Pass well, un-passable.

    Another reason this makes no sense is for the following reasons:

    1. Unlike REMFs who push a desk all day, combat soldiers, on average, do PT every day. (Sometimes THREE times a day, like I used to do),

    2. That being the case, we require higher caloric intake than a REMF,

    3. What are they going to do about the MRE, which those in the field eat!?

    Each MRE provides an average of 1,250 calories (13% protein, 36% fat, and 51% carbohydrates) and 1/3 of the Military Recommended Daily Allowance of vitamins and minerals. A full day’s worth of meals would consist of three MREs.

    4. MREs were designed specifically to increase the caloric intake when in the field or combat zones.

    And how she got her commission I can guess. She was probably a direct commission after getting her degree. And since she is part of the Medical Service Corps, she probably got a direct commission to Captain and has just stayed in long enough to make LTC.

Not only are the Health Nazis wrong to be fussing to this level of detail on people’s diets, even putting that issue aside, their nutrition advice is wrong.

    I cut down on grains years ago, because I found out I was allergic to wheat (as in “where’s my inhaler?”) not to mention other GI issues. I decided it was time to lose the baby fat (the youngest just turned 14) last summer, and cut out a lot of grain products. In January I discovered Mark’s Daily Apple, and decided it was time to try Paleo/Primal eating, since I was being good on calories, but hadn’t lost any weight for three months. After almost two months with no grain products, no soy, a lot less sugar, and a LOT more bacon :em01: , I’ve dropped another 10 pounds without counting calories, virtually all of it from my belly. I also have only taken my prilosec twice, both times after giving in and eating something I knew I shouldn’t. Before last summer, if I missed a single dose, I’d be in misery within about six hours. My arthritis doesn’t seem to be anywhere near as painful in the mornings either. I’ve also noticed that I have less grey hairs than I did six months ago, and it’s NOT because they are falling out. They’re just coming in brown again.
