US Troops Who Get Pregnant To Face Jail Time

FINALLY!

As a former soldier I can personally attest to how much this irks soldiers. Pregnancy is the female soldier’s equivalent of shooting themselves in the foot to be rotated back home. Causing a self-inflicted wound however usually leads to some form of punishment. Women have been getting away with this for far too long.

FYI, the men who get them pregnant face the same jail time.

Daily Mail:

A top US commander is threatening soldiers who fall pregnant on active service with jail.

Under the new policy, troops expecting a baby face court martial and a possible prison term – and so do the men who made them pregnant.

And the rule applies to married couples at war together, who are expected to make sure their love lives do not interfere with duty.

Usual US Army policy is to send pregnant soldiers home from combat zones within 14 days.

But Major General Anthony Cucolo, who runs US operations in northern Iraq, issued the new orders because he said he was losing too many women with critical skills.

He needed the threat of court martial and jail time as an extra deterrent, he said.

All troops under his command are covered by the extension to the military’s legal code – the first time the US Army has made pregnancy a punishable offence.

Blatant Disregard For US Constitution & Your Liberty Advances In Senate

WASHINGTON - OCTOBER 26:  Senate Majority Lead...

The US Senate has advanced the health care bill as expected.  All it took was corruption and bribery to get the votes.  And to think, a few of you out there actually thought your rights weren’t for sale.

Politico:

The Democratic Party’s decades-long push to remake the U.S. health care system cleared a major hurdle early Monday morning, with the Senate voting to advance a massive $871 billion bill to extend coverage to nearly all Americans and tighten regulations on private insurers.

Less than two days after releasing a bill with 383 pages of changes, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) corralled his politically diverse caucus and delivered the 60 votes necessary for the most crucial test vote in the legislative process so far — effectively assuring the reform package will clear the Senate later this week.

The final tally was a straight party-line vote, 60-40. All Democrats and two independents voted yes and all Republicans voted no – and each side bitterly accused the other of trying to thwart true reform through petty gamesmanship.

DC is still looking for one Democrat who’s actually read the bill.

Duke University’s New Sexist Rape Policy

Posted by Casey on December 21, 2009

New evidence has suggested that sexual misconduct on college campuses have declined. Sounds like great news, but there is an explanation. According to some in academia that simply means that “a plethora of rapes are going unreported.” One Ada Gregory, director of the Duke Women’s Center explained the decline as “higher IQ” males, such as those at Duke, could be “highly manipulative and coercive.”

Uh huh. Naturally, if there are less cases of misconduct it must be due to smart men manipulating weak women. And that’s coming from the Women’s Center?

More on the new policy …

The revised policy requires involving the Women’s Center in the disciplinary process for all known allegations of sexual misconduct and empowers the Office of Student Conduct to investigate even if the accuser does not want to proceed.

Duke’s rules define sexual misconduct so broadly and vaguely as to include any sexual activity without explicit “verbal or nonverbal” consent, which must be so “clear” as to dispel “real or perceived power differentials between individuals [that] may create an unintentional atmosphere of coercion” (emphasis added).

The disciplinary rules deny the accused any right to have an attorney at the hearing panel or to confront his accuser. The rules also give her — but not him — the right to be treated with “sensitivity”; to make opening and closing statements; and to receive copies of investigative documents.

Looks like Duke hasn’t learned their lesson.
