Obama picks air force commander who has never piloted a plane



Obama has picked the first woman to head the Air Force in the Pacific. The only problem? This woman officer has never piloted a plane.

A female general who has never piloted a military aircraft has been nominated by US President Barack Obama to head the Air Force in the Pacific.

Air Force Lt. Gen. Lori J. Robinson was nominated by the president for a fourth star and to be commanding general of the military branch’s Pacific operations.

If confirmed, she will be the first four-star female commander of combat forces, the Pentagon announced. But many wonder if her lack of experience in the air puts US forces on a highway to the danger zone.

‘You make operational decisions that require the understanding of what you are going to ask pilots to execute in combat where the wrong decisions mean the difference between life and death,’ a retired pilot told the Washington Times.

Despite her lack of experience behind the controls, she is currently the vice commander of Air Force Combat Command – which is in charge of bomber and fighter jets.

I guess actually piloting a plane is no longer a requirement for promotion in the air force, because this woman is now a senior general without ever having piloted a plane. Not a fighter. Not a bomber. Not even a refueling tanker. I looked over her resume. Her entire career has been one of being in charge of other pilots. She skipped the stage of actually flying planes, that apparently being unnecessary for women in the air force.

How can a woman, or anyone, command air force planes when they have never piloted one, and have no idea what it's like? It's like promoting someone to Admiral who has never piloted a ship.

More from the Washington Times:

Gen. Robinson was nominated amid a diversity push by Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and a general focus on women’s issues by theWhite House.

So that's what it's all about. Being a woman. Not being qualified. I'm surprised they limited their search to someone in the air force. Why should a four star general in the air force be required to have even served a day in the air force, since body type is the primary qualification? It would certainly make it easier to put lesbians and transgenders in charge if no military experience was required. All Obama would have to do is look outside the Port Authority Bus Station in Manhattan and he could find a number of well qualified candidates.

This is why having women in the military is a mistake, by the way. Because they relax the standards so much that everyone is put into danger.

Alaska spends like drunken sailors, then whines when times get tough


Alaska has no income tax (yet). It gets most of its money from oil revenue. So when the price of oil is high, Alaska can spend like there's no tomorrow. But when the price of oil and gas is low, like it is now, it becomes time for politicians to complain they don't have enough money to spend!
The University of Alaska has said it will reorganize its campuses and may have to cut more than 8 percent of the staff, but professors are already heading for the exits

Liberals promoting abortion shocked by infanticide


When liberals are absolutists on abortion, as they often are, they are basically promoting the "right" to abortion until the moment of birth, for whatever reason. In light of that culture they promote, they shouldn't be shocked when the logical next step after that is infanticide. After all, if a mother kills her child immediately upon birth, for liberals it's simply an abortion that's a little later than usual, right?
