The Two Most Beautiful Women in America

There is only one truly beautiful woman in America: "Lady Liberty" who stands for everything in which I believe. Every single person who glimpses the "Lady" for the first time should fall to his or her knees in prayer, thanking my God, that they have almost reached the shores of this great country. The Statue of Liberty leaves me awestruck; she is a constant reminder that The USA always has been and always will be the greatest country in the world. When one acknowledges this, no matter from which place they originated, thev he or she will have the opportunity to succeed at the American Dream. Remember though, there are no guarantees - "we the People of the United State of America", all worked very hard to accomplish our goals, provide for and care for our families. Why should those who pass through Ellis Island be any different than my forefathers who came, conquered and left a lasting legacy for me to embrace. The only other "beauty" I acknowledge which represents my love for this country is the Flag of the United State of America. Long may she wave! I pray God's blessings on each and everyone of you who read this post..

Of all the things to be upset about, this is one of the dumbest. Women's lib said women are equal to men, putting them in combat is an extension of that. Also, there are very strong omen out there, stronger than men both physically and mentally.

I don't see why a Soldier's gender is an issue. Whether a person is capable of going into battle or not has nothing to do what they have in their pants. There are women who are strong enough,tough enough,and resolved enough to take on any enemy,just as there are men who are NOT good candidates for battle. Regardless of gender,if you can meet the required standards,you should be accepted on that value alone. It IS true that some people of BOTH genders have weaker skeletal structures that would indicate more likelihood of injuries,(I'm not a "football player" build) but as in my case,they can learn to do the work by using correct posture for lifting,leverage to move heavy things,etc.(I used to have to move and set pop machines for a beverage vendor,back when I was 125 pounds,and I did it without help.) Work SMART.
