  1. #1 Troops told to refrain from eating, drinking in front of Muslims 
    Do not eat or drink in front of Muslims, and learn more about their religion.

    That’s the directive that has gone out to active duty military personnel at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, a Department of Defense medical and graduate school in Bethesda, Md.

    The brigade commander sent an email to military personnel at the facility last month – just before the start of Ramadan – advising them to show respect to Muslim colleagues.

    “This is a period of great personal restraint and commitment in addition to renewed focus on worship,” Brigade Commander Col. Kevin Glasz wrote. “I’d like to encourage you to learn just a little more about this religion, but more importantly, I’m asking you to be considerate and do not consume food or drink in front of our Muslim colleagues; it is a simple, yet respectful action.”

    During the month-long period known as Ramadan, Muslims refrain from eating or drinking during daylight hours.

    The brigade commander also provided a link to a website about Islam, and specifically Ramadan.

    Now that raised the ire of some of the officers and doctors training at the USU, and several of them reached out to me with their concerns – provided I not disclose their names.

    “I respect the intention behind this email, but note that there is no similar call honoring other faiths,” one Marine told me. “There is no similar invitation for non-Jewish colleagues to refrain from eating leavened products during Passover, or non-Christian colleagues to refrain from eating meat during Lent.”

    The entire incident smells of political correctness, the Marine told me.

    “Our veterans have sacrificed too much blood, sweat and tears to have their own rights and freedoms be sacrificed on the altar of progressive political correctness,” the Marine said.

    If I know that somebody is fasting, I'll try not to eat in front of them as a courtesy, but that should never be a rule.

    They should barbeque a whole hog at every base.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    With cases of ice cold beer to wash it down. Thanking Jesus, of course, for His gifts.

    My choice would be a thick grilled pork chop with a vodka and tonic chaser (with a twist of lime, please).

    Should do it with the military dogs by their side. You know how they love dogs.

    What a bunch of BS
    Obama isn't the problem. The problem is an electorate that would vote a man like him into office.
