Pet peeve, our military is not a daycare.

We try not to go into politics and the like here on LooseRounds.com, but lately I keep seeing the same bullshit said elsewhere that I just have to rant about it.

I used to see and hear people express how we needed a draft to straighten out the children of this nation.  Now I tend to see it stated differently.  Usually it is something like, “My daughter is a drug addict and can’t hold a job, I’m trying to get her to join the military.”

Now there are a good number of problems with this mentality.  The military has a job, stuff along the lines of the common defense of our nation and the projection of force in order to support the interests of our country, etc.  The various jobs of the military don’t include being a daycare or therapy for your fucked up kid.

Our military works in stressful situations doing vital tasks.  Conscripting the military full of people who don’t want to be there, or are unable to function, is only going to reduce the capability and smooth operation of our military.  Doing this is only going to is making it harder on the people who are there to get the job done.

The people who want want the military to be their kid’s parent are the same type of scum who want to strip us of our rights and hand over all power to the government.  They are they sort of people who want the Big Brother Government to fix all our issues including being a parent for their kid and other peoples kids.  They are being selfish idiots who want to pawn off their problems on someone else and let everyone else’s tax dollars pay for it.

Our Military is a place for professionals doing a dangerous and important jobs, not a daycare for your poorly raised child.

Gun Owner Goes To England

 

Tomorrow is a holiday as most of those still among the living already know.   There is a good chance there won’t be a long article   like on normal days.  But I will  post a few small things just for fun . I also have a firearms picture I ran across I think will possible inspire some discussion.

Why we are not currently taking guest posts from strangers.

As you know, we here at LooseRounds.com like to stay pretty informal. We previously encouraged people to send us guest posts, but almost every week now we get sent some absolute garbage.

One example, we had someone submit an article, “Glock 42 V.s Desert Eagle: Which Is Best Suited For Military“. This wasn’t even a parody.  The intro picture was of a blank firing Beretta clone.  Phrases like, “Stops power” and “Handguns continuous inventions fail to include distinctive features.” were used much like how we butcher the English language.

I contacted the writer and told them that if they had written that sober, they should go see a doctor in case they had suffered a stroke.  Hell, if we wanted something written that poorly, I’d write it myself.

A Subject Matter Expert Checks In

I don’t think I have to say anything about the now standard  mouth foaming idiocy  that comes from these tragedies.  But I   saw this and thought it too good not to share.

 

“An AR-15 is a semi automatic rifle. It shoots 13.4 bullets per second, 800 rounds per minute. It was created for the purpose of hitting multiple targets in a short amount of time, making it ideal for mass murder. It’s been used in the military to clear out areas in the Middle East for the reason above. Compare it to, say, a Glock 19 (a popular handgun, since you’re confused about it). This gun is small and holds a chamber big enough for 10 rounds of ammo. It is not an automatic or semi-automatic weapon, meaning it takes more time in between shots to be able to shoot again. The Glock 19 shoots less than a single bullet per second. It is used in homicides and burglaries, crimes with singular victims. it is not ideal for mass murder because of its inability to target multiple people at once. But you know what can? A fucking semi-automatic weapon”
