I am not sure who this Air Farce Officer J. Matisek is, but I what I do know is he is an ass clown (or as my colleague suggested Fuck Face).
Capt J. Matisek said in a reply to an earlier post:
“Moreover, having attended a Service Academy, I can tell you that very few people understand what it is, and many equate all of the Service Academies as being the same as VMI, Citadel, etc.”
Wow aren’t we special. See you started at early age buttering up to the brass. I doubt if most people in Virginia, South Carolina, or even Texas would associate being the Corps of Cadets of VMI, VPI&SU, Norwich, Citadel, or Texas A&M as being the same as going to a service academy. Most people would realize that the biggest difference is rather than studying under the benevolence of the great American welfare machine those attending the aforementioned schools pay to do so.
Since average Americans do not know this difference between federally funded DOD schools and public/private funded schools of VMI and Citadel, the line is clearly blurred in the eyes of the public.
Actually most Americans know a welfare queen when they see them.
So in essence, what you see when Romney speaks at VMI is a room full of cadets in their military garb, and average Americans think that Romney is giving a rousing speech to the troops at this military college. Now of course we can speculate as to how Romney keeps giving speeches there – I assume he has a rich friend that works there or knows a person related to the governing of that institution – but it is clearly a play by Romney’s campaign team to put up this illusion of military support so that he can look strong on foreign policy,
Actually most American’s didn’t pay a bit of attention to Romney’s speech.
when in reality he is merely speaking to a bunch of college kids playing dress up in military outfits.
While you managed to sail through the Academy without having your education interrupted by events such as a reserve call up and a deployment to either Iraq or Afghanistan, a number of VMI Cadets have done so. One was called up three different times and graduate four years after his Class. So don’t say they are playing dress up—if fact most attending the aforementioned colleges and universities take their Cadetship very seriously and don’t view their four years as merely playing dress up.
I say college kids in outfits not to offend VMI and Citadel grads, but because we all know that attending those institutions does not guarantee an individual a commission in the US military.
Hey ass clown, let me clue you in you have already offended every Cadet attending the aforementioned institutions. In fact if I were you, I would not identify yourself as the one who wrote these remarks otherwise you are likely to get your skinny little fly boy(girl) ass kicked from here to hell and back. You are also an arrogant bastard for rubbing the Cadets nose in the fact that Academy graduates regardless of whether they are first or last in their class Academy graduates are guaranteed a Regular Commission; whereas well deserving ROTC graduates are regulated to getting a Reserve Commission and the possibility of never going on active duty.
So again, not to be cynical, but Romney is merely speaking to a bunch of college kids playing dress up, who were most likely “non-volunteered” to attend as a part of a rent-a-crowd; something all Academy graduates fondly remember from our Cadet days…”
You are right they probably were “volunteered,” the problem with the Academies is every time a politician needs trained seals they go to one of the academies.
