General Martin Dempsey, shill for Barack Obama, is ordering the standards be dropped so that women can pass the test to become Marine infantry officers.  I assume if they don’t meet the new lower standard it will again be lowered.  This can prove disastrous, after all, that’s how Obama got elected.  They lowered the standard to the point it could walk below a pregnant cockroach without even stooping.  In all 29 women failed to pass the rigorous standards required for combat officers.  Only four women were able to pass the first day’s test.

Two years ago Obama’s ventriloquist dummy Dempsey laid down an edict that if women failed tests, officers better have a very good reason for not lowering standards to help them pass.  That sounds more like a threat than an order and any officer looking forward to collecting a pension better walk carefully.  It reminds me that years ago when I lived in the New York City metro area, they did the same thing for firefighters.

It has been a nightmare for the training school.  Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro, who is in his first year has decided that recruits no longer have to pass every test in order to become firefighters.  One recruit graduated even though she failed the running test five times.  Injuries are another problem.  Because the lower standards mean out of shape men and women are now eligible to apply.  In the average year before the lower standards the class of 300 averaged two injuries.  This years class had at least a dozen.

The fact remains that if they can’t set up a ladder in training, there is no way to expect them to be able to do it in the field, under stressful conditions.  A case in point is recruit Wendy Tapia, who not only failed the running test five times but has been shown to be accident prone.  She has an excuse for everything.  The first time she failed the running test, she claimed she had a fractured foot and the second time she said she had a respiratory infection.

She not only endangers the citizens she is supposed to protect, she also endangers the lives of firemen who actually passed the test.  Can we afford to risk the lives of our heroes in the Marines for the sake of “diversity”?
