Waiver

By lex, on July 16th, 2009

When I was a youngster midshipman, I had the opportunity to exchange pleasantries with a World War II veteran that had sailed his submarine into Tokyo Bay, leaving havoc in his wake.

“How many ladies d’ye have at the Naval Academy these days, boy?” asked the old coot with a gleam in his eye.

“I believe about there are about three hundred females out of 4,400 midshipmen in the brigade,” I replied.

“And how many of them are pregnant?” he went on.

“None, sir. Being pregnant or having caused pregnancy while as a midshipman is a barrier to service, we’re told. Midshipmen are too busy to be responsible for families.”

“Ha,” he cried in evident pleasure, “That’s why you mids today are not the men your fathers were!”

“How is that, sir?”

“In our day, they would have all been pregnant!”

Ecce: Progress.*

Baby steps you know. But progress none the less.

One response to “Waiver

    This is precisely why America is on down, the statists have convinced us that we should not have more than one or two children. Now the same statists/globalists are trying to import cheap labor to support an aging population: in the form of refugees and asylum seekers. They are funding groups to advertise a “way out” in these socialist countries where the people are dealing with extreme poverty and systemic crime and corruption, with no regard for law and social repercussions in the US. My advice is tohave as many children as you can feed, and vote these anti freedom imposters out!
