Navy SEALs ordered to remove ‘don’t tread on me’ Navy Jack from uniforms

The Navy Jack is the ‘don’t tread on me’ flag, one that has earned a revered place in America’s naval history and a beloved place in sailor’s hearts, through its use for over two centuries. This symbol of America’s naval ferocity has spanned our country’s entire existence, flying from the masts of the Continental Navy during the war of independence, to today’s War on Terror. In fact, an amendment to the Navy code called SECNAV Instruction 10520.6 clearly states that as of 31 May 2002 all ships are to fly the flag throughout the duration of the War on Terror.
 
So why would ranking SEAL commanders ban the historical symbol? Is the proverbial top bass banning the flag? Is President Obama?

You can tell them what to wear but they can think what they want

Isn't "fundamental transformation" wonderful?
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

I truly fear what this country will be like in 3.5 more years of this.

  • French entertainment is a waste of mime.
What the bleep?

It is another example of what we were talking about the other day in the "new Marine cover" thread. You don't dismantle a military by fiat. You do it one tradition at a time.
Anyone who tells you you can't buy happiness has never been in a book store or an animal shelter.

You are the result of 3 billion years of evolutionary success. Act like it.
