It’s apparently not a troll job or photoshop.
Which can only mean:
With the news that Montana’s at-large Congressman, Ryan Zinke, will be tapped for the Interior Department, we find out that he was a Navy SEAL.
I asked here about two weeks ago when it came to pass that half the world is working for Goldman Sachs. Now I’m asking where all these Navy SEALs came from to start running things and have high level senior civilian governmental duties. Don’t forget about our Governor-Elect. It seems like both the electorate in general and the President-Elect are scooping up SEALs and giving them power like they’re about to go out of style.
Have the Navy SEALs become some sort of informal leadership academy in recent years? Just thinking off the top of my head, the Navy SEALs are to the right what Harvard Law School is to the left. To put it another way, remembering my Pareto, it could be the case that the foxiest foxes go to Harvard Law, while the most leonine lions go into the Navy SEALs.

If there is going to be someone who ran for President in 2016 or any other year in Trump’s cabinet, it will be someone who ran in the other party:
Jim Webb, at Defense.
It would be the traditional someone-else-of-the-other-party in the Cabinet, and it would be a consequential agency, and Trump and Webb mesh fairly well on military and foreign policy, and a number of other issues.
Obama noted that the U.S. military is the country’s most diverse institution, comprised of immigrants and native-born service members representing all religions and no religion. He says they are all “forged into common service.”
When Obama wanted to accomplish what turned out to be the keynote accomplishment of his first term, and needed the military’s help, he turned to the least diverse part of it, the Navy SEALs.
I think it’s more proof of the theory that the reason why gay cis men are so defensive of transgenders is because so many gay men seriously think they’ll want to go transgender.
And if you didn’t know how I was going to end this post, you must not have been paying attention in the last 13 years.
Whatever the answer, the feminist essayist (“queer/femme antagonist”) with that surname has a new essay on how camouflage clothing is anti-feminist.
I didn’t need to go any further.
It’s because high-T man’s man types wear it either for official public duties (the military-police spectrum), or unofficial private pursuits (e.g. hunting, civilian militia, paintball).
Am I right? Or am I wicked right?
Remember, feminist-lesbian-Jews want women in full active military combat, and Obama has gotten them 99% of the way there.
The raison d’etre of Earth, circa August 9, 2016, is to troll me and specifically and explicitly me.
