#1 No worries LTC Kasker. While they should all be immediately expelled and barred from further military service, we know nothing will come of this. It is a very sad day for a proud institution.

#2 IMO, if one were to check their scores---Besoeker, one'd find they shouldn't have been there in the first place.

#3 "....dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal."

The famous author did not use the word 'fact, he used the word 'proposition' which is a statement or assertion that expresses a notion, a judgment or opinion.

The notion is flawed, and I can easily use my own humble human experience as evidence. The lie however, will be sustained and round pegs will continue to be placed in square holes, standards will be shunned, and playing fields lowered, all in the name of the egalitarian myth of fairness and equality.

The obvious upside, to overcome the system, a few within those not selected for preferential treatment will strive and achieve even greater accomplishment. Superior accomplishment however, will only serve as a salvation until the test sample is flooded with preferentials or the 'accomplished' begin to be viewed as the illegally privileged and are forced to go elsewhere.

These are indeed interesting times.

#4 "....dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal."

Equal in the eyes of the law regardless of birth or status, not equal in innate ability, drive, or opportunity. Those who demand equality of outcome require inequality in the eyes of the law, ignoring individual ability and effort.
