UPDATE: I take it all back. Not a hero at all. Instead Lt. Colonel Michael Holmes appears to be a lying loser. Thanks Holmes. You’ve made an ass out of me by posing as a whistle blower when in reality you just wanted some fame.
Lt. Colonel Michael Holmes
He is the man who refused to follow orders to use his psy-ops on our representatives.
yes, he was reprimanded. Now that it’s out, maybe they can give him a medal.
UPDATE: Hold this designation……there appears to be controversy.
But there will also be an investigation. Two things to note:
Faced with a written order to make visits by high-ranking officials his top priority, Colonel Holmes sought advice from a military lawyer, Capt. John Scott, who agreed that using information operations “to influence our own folks is a bad idea, and contrary to IO policy,” Rolling Stone reported.
And after a 2007 Congresswoman had her bio spread everywhere she went…:
General Petraeus, then serving as commander in Iraq, pledged that future biographies of visiting legislators would be taken only from the members’ Web sites or from Congressional Quarterly.
From what I’ve read, Holmes collected the information. It was the using of information that made him uncomfortable.
We’ll circle back on this post as more information comes out.
Now its in Denver where one doofus SEIU guy notes that
“That’s your problem. You’re an entrepreneur, so you don’t work. You don’t know what work is until you get into an educational area. … You’re uneducated, unethical, immoral, and you don’t know what life is. That’s your problem. Why don’t you go behind that fence where you belong? Why don’t you go back with your own kind?”
Coyote blog has something to say about that.
This bizarre article in the Wall Street Journal struggles to understand why men are still boys.
It concludes by suggesting that they are because they can be because women can make it on their own.
Relatively affluent, free of family responsibilities, and entertained by an array of media devoted to his every pleasure, the single young man can live in pig heaven—and often does.
I would suggest it has to do with women infiltrating all the boys clubs by pushing their way in. Men no longer have poker nights without women tagging along. Superbowl parties are 2 sexed, etc, etc etc.
If men want to act like boys they are going to do so in front of women. And since women accept it it keeps on going. And like the pajama bottoms people where out of the house all the time now – casual becomes the norm.
If the author looked, she’d find that you don’t find as many Katherine Hepburn (from the movies) type women either. We too have become more casual. We cuss, we get drunk, we put up with bad behavior from men and our peers. But no one looks, because then they’d have to write an article insulting women and that would be bad.
I’m pretty sure this is a better method of population control (all of us becoming more juvenile) than China’s method – so…..let’s hear it for the boys! (though I’ll still prefer men)
