Elk, that is not uncommon, but it is the same as "little brother syndrome", where buddies help out one that is perceived as needing help.

Women should be able to serve combat missions, but for many reasons, would be better served in a squad of women only troops. That could be easily done. Matching MOS, and have elite female units.

Well, this was a very real problem years ago and is the reason that it has taken so long to come about. In today's world, women are no longer held in high regard and have become more equal. Having taken years to come about and evolve, I really don't think that segregation is the answer. At this point in time, I would think that would be a real setback.

The little brother syndrome was never a problem because a weak male was bullied into compliance or coerced into getting stronger, where as women were not. Men don't expect women to 'toughen up' or get left behind.

I think the military has waited to the right time to introduce women to combat positions. if they had done it any sooner it would have been devastating to the whole evolution. Even though the press and the general population have pushed for it for years, could you imagine how the press and general population would handle it if an entire platoon or group of women were wiped out? They would totally have forgotten everything they said and wanted and immediately blamed military commanders for allowing such a thing to happen.

Right now the press could care less if a platoon of men got killed yesterday. It is doubtful it would even be on the evening news. But if a platoon of women got killed yesterday, that is all that would be on the TV.

It really ticked me off the other day when a prowler crashed and the news headline was "$57 million dollar Navy Prowler crashes, crew perishes." They knew the exact cost of the aircraft but never even researched how many in the crew nor what their names were. What would be the headline if it was an all female crew?

The alternative news is it for me. I want the real story, not what the the new's heirarchy is. If we're suppose to be equal, then let's be it. Those stories tick me off too. Woodstock and Ten Years After did change the world. I never fast forward through those Trace Adkins commercials to give to the veterans funds. The images are shocking. I'm more familiar seeing the wounded men soldiers, but the women are even more shocking. I have to take pause for the song and the images. I don't want to forget what people are going through at the current moment of the ad. I don't want to hear about our moms and sisters (dad and brothers too of course) being raped. I don't want to hear about a man's wife overseas getting pregnant. I don't want to hear my tax dollars are spent on the issues of how long an female vet's earrings are allowed to be. And does it cost alot of money and area space to have extra private quarters and bathrooms? Just some thoughts. I don't know what to do. But an entertainer in the 80's had a funny joke and could be true too, that a womens batallion could very well be the meanest one, meaner that any guy battallion, but only for a few days and those would have to be coordinated just so to make it work. But it's confusing to think you have both the little brother syndrome overlaid by the little sister syndrome really would fragment the thought proces and the fight or flight syndrome...I'm confused just sitting here. I admire anyone who's in the military.

Back to Montana, there are two very nice state run veterans homes in Montana, one in Columbia Falls, one in Miles City. There are no income qualifications or restrictions. These are some of the nicest nursing homes I have ever been in...all you need is to be a veteran. Montana has the highest veteran population of any state, almost ten percent of our state has served.

On the lighter side.

Watching National news this morning. It seems that a team of experts have been conducting a study on "Cup-a-Soup". Seems that young children have been getting injured so they put together a team and with our tax dollars to fuel the study, they have determined that the cup design is at fault. Being larger at the top and narrower at the bottom, it is tipping and causing injury.

Huh. and all along I thought it was because of labeling where it says 'Step 1, boil water.' Do you think maybe it's because the water is hot? (brought to you using no tax dollars. You're very welcome.) If they hadn't turned up the brilliant answer of cup design when they did, they would have started looking at the children's political affiliation.

I remember when some guy won a lawsuit when he put a hot cup of coffee between his legs and burned his little nads.
Next thing I expect is to see in the news that some ice cream place will get sued for hurting someones teeth or someone getting an "ice cream headache".

Coffee's on! And if I must say so, it's pretty darn good.

I buy whole beans and grind my coffee fresh every morning. There is a problem and that is buying enough coffee beans at WalMart. Most of the time their shelf has a couple 11 ounce bags. WTH? Do they think this is a hobby??? I need about 6 bags each month so would have to go all they way into town several times a month, just to buy coffee.

So I got on that new thing called a World Widest Web, and found 40oz bags of the types of coffee I use and I ordered several bags. I'm set for now. I mix two different types of beans to get the best flavor.

Bring bear sign!

For anyone who lives near a Winco grocery, they now have a whole aisle of coffee beans, probably 30 different kinds, plus a grinder for you folks who prefer to leave the mess at the store. You can buy as much or as little as you wish.

Now if only the tea aisle was that extensive...!!

Really good quality bulk spices, too.

And they were out of pork rinds yesterday, dangit. They have really good pork rinds.

Unfortunately, we don't have a Winco. Our choices are WalMart, Safeway, Albertson's, and a mom and pop operation. Safeway and Albertsons doesn't carry what I want and what they do carry, again is the smal bags.

Grinding isn't messy. The whole idea of grinding your own is so it's fresh, so, although grinding it in the store is better than buying it off the shelf, but grinding it just before it goes in the coffee pot is better yet.

WalMart's coffee beans run around $5-7 depending on kind. Safeway and Albertson's start at about $9 for the same size bag.

Default I've never heard of Winco.

But I remember going to the Winn Dixie and the Piggly Wiggly back when I lived in other states.
