    As Martha Stewart would say... this is a good thing.

    The zero-defects crowd has seen that not allowing hard chargers the latitude to blow off steam is causing problems.

    Yoga and meditation won't replace a case of beer and some float widows.

    Marines studying yoga and West Point Cadets learning how to defeat the "vast right wing conspiracy". Welcome to the liberal military.

    Have you seen, "Men who stare at goats". I laughed my ass off at some of that because I saw some similarities to some things I saw while in the service.

    People who haven't been in the armed forces don't realize just how MUCH really stupid stuff goes on.

    Men only stare at goats when the fat asses in the Pentagon are taking their afternoon naps and the people who couldn't find a spy in the next cubicle, the CIA, is running the show. Bill Clinton and his strange wife tried to force the Marines to train men and women in the same boot-camp platoons like the Army and (God love them) the Marines refused. A Clinton spokesperson at the time called them Neanderthals or sexist maniacs or something worse but they stuck to it. Stupid stuff might go on in the Army or the Navy but not the Marines.
