Pregnant Sailors Causing Big Problems for the Navy

The US Navy, once the acknowledged master of the seas, has a pregnancy problem. Apparently, “16 out of 100 Navy women are reassigned from ships to shore duty due to pregnancy.”

And that number is up from previous years.

And it’ll probably get worse until the adults in the room– in Congress, in the White House, in the DON and the DON– throttle back the lunacy that grew and festered in the last eight years, the sustained social engineering binge of wild-eyed progressives.

It’s expensive, hellishly expensive, disruptive, and debilitating. The Navy is certainly not alone in the problem, but the peculiarities of service at sea magnify the folly of stupid policies. This lesson has been learned, as if we didn’t already know what the outcome would be); let it be ended and corrected.

Readiness is the sole proper objective state of the Department of Defense. Anything that promotes readiness should be reinforced and sustained; anything that harms it should be ruthlessly cut down.

Halsey and Nimitz, where are you when we need you?

    Halsey and Nimitz are under investigation for once being on the Washington Mall at the same time as the Russian ambassador.
