    What does his being black have to do with anything? Incompetence and trying to get shit out of the gov't isn't endemic to one race, you know.

    Context doesn't matter to this liberal it seems/ as long as it satisfies his godless dreams/ like monkeys throwing sh!t as castles in air/ as long as he throws/that is the extent of his care.

    You are wrong.

    May 19, 1994, the Secretary of the Navy, John H. Dalton, decreed the word Sailor when used in Naval correspondence and referring to Sailors of the U.S. Navy Sailor will be capitalized. Army Chief of Staff, Gen. Peter J. Schoomaker, in October 2003 and Air Force Chief of Staff, Gen. John Jumper, in May 2004 decreed the same for the words Soldier and Airman respectively. Marine (when referring to a person in the Marine Corps) is a proper noun and will always be capitalized.

    The military has a variety of internal usages and pronunciations. It's called jargon. It's pretentious. It's wrong.

    No idea who you are talking about, but in general being black helps when wearing pink or yellow, but not purple or plaid.

    The military has a variety of internal policies, standards and the like. It is what makes us what we are, and it is neither pretentious nor wrong. Perhaps if you find us so objectionable, you will refrain from trying to compel us to accept your peers.

    uh...no, it's a proper noun. They are Marine's, Soldier's, Sailor's, Paratrooper's, etc It's like using a name, you're Novaheart, not novaheart
