Happy Birthday US Marine Corps, The Best and the Baddest

 This is good from Human Events online this morning mentioning the celebration of the birth of the United States Marine Corps today November 10 1775, obviously 6 months before the Declaration of Independence was drafted and ratified by the Continental Congress as you can read about below..

So ALL prayers out today for all the Marine Corps men and women who together with the rest of our brave military minus the killer Muslim spies we now know exist in their ranks and have now for years protect us here and abroad even though we cannot guarantee we won't hire Muslim soldiers who hate us and them even more...something the Founders wouldn't appreciate too much...
The Marines I have seen around the world have the cleanest bodies, the filthiest minds, the highest morale, and the lowest morals of any group of animals I have ever seen. Thank God for the United States Marine Corps!
—Eleanor Roosevelt

"Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. The Marines don't have that problem."
Ronald Reagan, President of the United States; 1985

From the Halls of Montezuma,
To the shores of Tripoli;
We fight our country’s battles,
In the air, on land, and sea;
First to fight for right and freedom
And to keep our honor clean;
We are proud to claim the title
Of United States Marine...
—Marine Corps Hymn

HUMAN EVENTS: "The Continental Congress authorizes the establishment of a force of American Marines for service on land and sea in the American War of Independence.

The legislation reads (unedited):

“Resolved, That two Battalions of marines be raised, Consisting of one Colonel, two Lieutenant Colonels, two Majors, and other officers as usual in other regiments; and that they consist of an equal number of privates with other battalions; that special care be taken, that no persons be appointed to office, or inlisted into said Battalions, but such as are good seamen, or so aquatinted with maritime affairs as to be able to serve to advantage by sea when required: that they be inlisted and commissioned to serve for and during the present war between Great Britain and the colonies, unless dismissed by order of Congress: that they be distinguished by the names of the first and second battalions of American Marines, and that they be considered as part of the number which the continental Army before Boston is ordered to consist of.”

This directive heralds the birthday of the Marine Corps. The first recruits to enlist -- two weeks later -- will be a motley mix of young adventurers and street toughs captained by the barkeep of a Philadelphia alehouse.

Quickly whipped into a crack contingent of seagoing soldiers, the Marines will evolve into one of the world’s premier military organizations, or -- as rocker Ted Nugent says in a 2008 tribute to the Corps -- “the world’s most exclusive gun club.”"


The urge to save humanity is always a false front for the urge to rule it. H. L. Mencken
