  1. General John Kelly has shown by his canine-like loyalty he is definitely “ONE OF MY GENERALS” as designated by Presidential ego.

    A U.S. military officer takes a succinctly different oath than enlisted military, “. . . . . . do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign or domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservations or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office upon which I am about to enter; So help me God.”

    General Kelly and the other “MY GENERALS” must now “bear true faith and allegiance to the same.” Donald J. Trump is NOT our Constitution. But far from it.

  2. I wonder how “sacred” those #metoo women feel.

    And I wonder how “sacred” women felt when Kelly was growing up and they couldn’t open bank accounts or get credit cards in their own names. Most landlords wouldn’t rent to single women, because they were all considered sluts who would have men in their places. Abortion was illegal, most jobs weren’t available for women, and if they had jobs, they made very little money–and their husbands might have controlled it. Sexual harassment was rampant everywhere, and women didn’t have many alternatives, because they couldn’t afford to quit their jobs–and the situation at the next one might be just as bad. Rape victims were either accused of lying, or “they were asking for it.” And the laws actually reflected that. And that hasn’t changed enough yet. So, not so “sacred.”

    I was growing up at the same time, and I know how few rights most women had. And I’d rather have rights and professions and good jobs than be considered “sacred.”

  3. John Kelley may not show a lot of fidelity to the US Constitution,
    but he is true to the core values honored at the highest levels of the US military:
    cover for your boss.

    though often singled out as the most trusted of US institutions,
    it is actually the most corrupt.
    And this can be laid at the feet of those who divorced the US military from broader society,
    the architects of the all-volunteer force who eliminated the draft.

    When we quit forcing young men to serve in Vietnam against their will,
    we eliminated the self-correcting catharsis of criticism.

    Today, when someone in the military observes and reports corruption or wrongdoing, she or he is told:
    “well, if you don’t still want to be here, then get out.”
    military career progression today is all about going along with whatever the higher-ups want, right or wrong.
