I finished my time in the Marines in 1999 with a solid attitude and a patriotic spirit.

The US should maintain strong and ready military forces.

Much has changed over the past 20 years.

There was a time in the USMC where tents and showers would be set up in a field on base and that would be the end of the story below. I do feel these people should be treated better. If DOD has billions of dollars to move around, why not build new barracks? Where was the planning on this 10 years ago?

Military Throwing Cash at Recruiting Crisis as Troops Head for the Exits

“The aggregate effects of two years of COVID is that is two years of not being in high school classrooms, two years of not having air shows and major public events like being in those public spaces, where our potential applicants or potential recruits are getting personal exposure, face-to-face relationships with military recruiters,” Thomas said.

Only about 40% of Americans who are of prime recruiting age are vaccinated against the virus. Outright refusal to get the shot immediately precludes joining the force and short-circuits any pitch from recruiters.”

Seventeen-to-24-year-olds are not getting vaccinated, and those [are] people we aren’t having a conversation with,” Vereen said.

Blogged about it here:

JBLM – US Armed Forces Vaccine Hesitancy

 

“Sen. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., the ranking member of the Senate Armed Services Committee personnel panel, says the military is on the cusp of a recruiting crisis.”

Questions we’d love to see newspeople ask:

Senator Tillis,

The Dept. of Defense has a truly poor track record with undeclared wars. This record goes back to 1949, the year DOD was established. Has this record damaged the brand?

Senator Tillis,

Is there any talk of going back to a draft in order to deal with your recruiting crisis?

If DOD was an NFL team, sports talk radio would feature comments like:

The Dept. of Defense was nowhere to be found on 911. We haven’t won a war since. Whatever they touch turns to crap.

Before making any plans to start up a draft, let us know how sending US Troops to Syria, Lebanon, Somalia, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq, Bosnia, etc., is somehow defending the constitution.

Senator Tillis,

Whatever happened to the formal congressional declaration of war?

This would be the time to hear from elected leaders and top generals Re: lessons learned on all the issues that have doomed the Department of Defense track record for winning wars since DOD was established in 1949.

Senator Tillis,

Has dressing women to look like men had any positive or negative impact on recruiting?

Senator Tillis,

Not here to say that military benefits are inadequate. Just stick with whatever was offered when people signed up to stay on for multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan and we’re good.

Every few years, no matter what political party or personality is in power, there are moves to modify what people thought they were earning in exchange for 20 years of unrestricted worldwide service.

The plan is to save cash by reducing the traditional DOD military benefits that were used to entice people to stay for multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan.

This is the same country where both major parties invite veterans to be momentarily honored at State of the Union events when they control the White House.

Senator Tillis,

Will an older generation encourage a younger generation to do time in the US Armed Forces in the years ahead?

How does Uncle Sam plan to attract young people to sign up in the years ahead?

 

2021

Some people are OK with opting out on COVID vaccines. The government is trying their very best with lottery giveaway events, to pull people in.

June 17, 2021 KING 5 News video

Washington launches COVID-19 vaccine incentive for military members, veterans

“…Washington is launching a new COVID-19 vaccine incentive called “A Heroes Thanks” for the state’s military members and veterans.”

People who do or did time in the US Armed Forces and staff and veterans and their families are assigned the bulk identity of heroes.

Hero?

“Staff Sgt. Chazz Newbill found out about the new lottery game moments after getting his second vaccine at a clinic on Joint Base Lewis-McChord Thursday.”

He found out about the new lottery game moments after getting his second vaccine? 

News cameras were rolling to promote the “A Heroes Thanks” program, but the people being interviewed by KING 5 TV and getting their vaccine didn’t know about the “A Heroes Thanks” program?

Got it.

“I feel pretty good about it,” said Newbill.

“He said one of the reasons he was getting the vaccine to set a good example for the soldiers he supervises.”

Now, it’s a good example to participate in the lotto prize game of chance scenario crafted by Governor Inslee.

Sorry, no time for KING 5 to let us know how many military supervisors were fully vaccinated before the lotto incentives were rolled out.

“Newbill thought the chance at winning cash might convince skeptics in the military to get vaccinated.”

I feel like money can help anybody convince anything,” said Newbill, “My wife is not vaccinated, so this is a convincing point with her too.”

Way to go Newbill.

The value of the meds does not stand on its own. A carnival game will help people to make up their mind.

The press is not available to interview people who still opt out over at the military base? Thanks newspeople.

Blogged about it here:

List of Things the Government is Good At – TV News Avoids Asking Questions

 

Conclusion:

Try for less blaming of a new generation and the Moms and Dads of today for any hesitation related to doing time in uniform. Time to take a hard look at what elected officials and the US Dept. of Defense did with the brand after the first Cold War ended in the early 90s and after the lessons of Vietnam were on the table.

After the Cold War:

The Cold War had ended. DOD was happy with their all volunteer military.

Look what they did with it.

The Cold War Had Ended

 

Possibly of interest:

Enough time now to look back and ask a few public policy questions. The fact that the press has never been in the habit of questioning the GWOT, by itself, seems a little odd.

Was It A Fake War On Terror?

I realized Saturday morning that it had been years since I watched TV news in the morning. 20 years ago, I would turn on the TV for news each morning. I started watching evening news on TV when I was at Camp Lejeune in the early 90s.

Over the past couple of years, local (Seattle) news has featured ongoing breakdown of society updates. Gunfire, stabbings, drug addiction, arson, catalytic converter thefts, casualties related to shootings, tent camping on the sidewalks, RV camping on city streets, and worst case scenario climate change predictions.

Ongoing breakdown of society updates:

Another of these items is an ongoing shortage of ferry workers.

The crew shortage story has been in place since at least June 30, 2020.

Love to see newspeople ask:

Does the WSF HR Director get paid more to keep the system running smoothly?

Are crew member incentives in place for perfect attendance?

Months of poor play would be enough to get an NFL or college football coach fired.

Is there pressure on the WSF HR Director to do better?

Various industries such as FedEx, UPS, Costco, etc. may do holiday hiring to staff up for a busy time of year. Any similar creative thinking in place at WSF?

HR policy away from WA government:

UPS aims to hire 100K ahead of ‘record peak holiday season’

 

Newspeople refuse to report on 2014 voter approved enhanced background checks.

Did the new requirements reduce gun crimes?

Newspeople remain silent.

Puget Sound area shootings roll on.

 

Local papers have stripped away all comments from past articles, and removed the opportunity to post comments to new articles.

Various newspapers in the Puget Sound area have gone with this trend.

Suppressing comments, getting away from asking questions related to public policy and telling us they need more support from subscription and advertising sales.

Got it.

On the national scene it’s all crisis management, undeclared/unwon wars, politics more ugly than at anytime in my life. Race relations that seem to have deteriorated since President Obama did 8 years in the White House.

Newspeople have moved away from asking basic public policy questions.

Our local TV news today is sort of a press release style of news reporting where a statement is prepared by whatever agency was involved in the latest policy update, drug bust/federal grant money award, etc.

Newspeople post this statement as is.

A 5th grade book report would require more in the way of asking questions.

TV advertising has become especially strange. How about legal anti-depression meds that may bring on thoughts of suicide (0:34).

 

I’d be OK with the mainstream press taking over the task of keeping the public informed. When TV newspeople avoid asking public policy related questions, individual citizens go out to check on what is going on.

JFK speaks about the role of the press and voices of dissent in a free society:

The family friendly, hometown pride-oriented local small town papers and TV news folks are more welcome to do interviews related to public policy. Unfortunately, they seem to have moved away from asking questions.

Operating A Camera In A Public Place

Sports writers and alternative media people are still about asking questions.

Still viewing lots of news via Twitter, and I would be more at peace if I moved away from it.

Much voting has gone on over the past 40 years or so. For sure, there is a chunk of public policy that has become worse, not better. Stopped watching TV news a long time ago because of the way newspeople (paid actors reading a script) have dealt with all this.

Grays Harbor – North Beach

 

I had not been to church in decades. Mom took us to a different brand of church regularly back in the 70s. In that time we clocked in and out at church, but did not really lead a Christian lifestyle during the week. I was in boy scout troops sponsored by churches and they were one of the best parts of my childhood.

I have not been a religious person during my lifetime.

The church I visited recently was well attended with people who were warm and friendly and looked to be happy people.

The sermon set up a choice between going to hell or confessing sins and committing to Jesus to spend forever in paradise.

The part of a Christian life that makes sense to me today is joining a group of a few people to go help a little old lady by mowing her lawn and making a dump run or two.

Also: Helping others by donating

Playing any role in order to earn everlasting life in paradise seems like a selfish motivation to me.

Presupposing that an unknown person has committed sins to a point that they must confess them or go to hell is a concept I do not feel connected to at this time.

My desire to go to church comes from the realization that I started adult life in a modern society about a decade past the first moon landing.

It was a much simpler time. I am trying to make sense of how a modern society changed so much in a short period of time.

Much voting has gone on over the past 40 years or so. For sure, there is a chunk of public policy that has become worse, not better.

Renting an apartment, buying a used car, buying gas, etc.

Routine errands in a modern society, now a BFD all of the time.

Federal intervention in student loans. Do not remember families being haunted by student loan debt in the 1970s.

Healthcare concerns — never seemed to be a big deal in the 70s when there were 4 or 5 kids to a family and sometimes a stay at home Mom. Better now?

Homelessness and drug addiction to the extent that people are now living in tents on city sidewalks.

A school lunch program that has turned into a school breakfast and lunch program that has turned into school busses hitting the road to deliver food to families when school is not in session.

March 13, 2020 CNN

The coronavirus pandemic is closing schools. How will kids eat?

“But as other schools deliberate shutting their doors to slow the spread of the coronavirus, some parents may be left to wonder: If schools close, how will my child eat?

More discussion and news coverage please.

Former Lunch Lady here.

I do not object to public assistance programs. The press should make an effort to keep the public informed on how these programs are working.

Again, I am not against public assistance programs, but did the WWII generation rely heavily on public school districts to feed their kids?

100 years ago, did families rely on school districts to feed their children to such an extent that, if school was shut down, school districts would scramble to fill busses with food and send it out into the neighborhoods?

If school shuts down, does the family still qualify for publicly funded food assistance? If food assistance programs remain in place outside of school-why would children be at risk of going hungry?

If the programs aren’t working-let’s hear all about it.

Both major parties have taken turns in power over a period of decades and have squandered credibility that would help in the current situation. A wide variety of political personalities have occupied the White House.

The whole system is run by people who are college educated. Advances in technology have not been able to solve problems in various areas. Wars are common. We were told we needed to send troops to Vietnam. Syria, Lebanon, Somalia, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc.

I became skeptical along the way.

Most people seem to be OK with believing The Troops are sent to distant lands to defend American rights and freedoms. Maybe the people at church do also.

 

Maybe I will continue to attend the church I went to recently. Maybe I will visit several churches in the months ahead.

I am not a big promoter of Earth Day. Whatever I believe in is mostly present with the same intensity all year long.

I am fascinated with the actions of elected officials and the press on Earth Day.

Politicians promote themselves on Earth Day. Newspeople play along by not asking questions.

Americans do not live in a free and honest society.

In a free and honest society, newspeople would be asking questions related to public policy all of the time.

Has anyone ever seen the Puget Sound area press ask questions about Whidbey water quality impacted by sewage treatment plant outfalls?

Love to see newspeople ask:

Background

Several Whidbey beaches remain closed all year long for recreational shellfish harvest because of sewage treatment outfall.

Sewage treatment outfall. Not stormwater.

POTUS begins to make a statement/answer questions from one or more reporters:

The video below is very critical of Biden. As usual, we have a few questions that never seem to come up. These are questions that are more about the federal government than any political party or personality. Our questions appear in bold type.

Why does any presidential administration need a Director of Message Planning?

 

Sports Culture Tends to be Open and Honest

Reporters are free to ask hard questions and write stories about teams, players, managers and coaches in sports.

Love to see general public policy, foreign policy, etc. reported on by sports writers.

Sept. 18, 2021 Seattle Times

After two frustrating losses, the dam finally breaks in Washington’s 52-3 win over Arkansas State

“Without a doubt, there is work to be done. But after eight quarters of catastrophes, this felt like progress. There needs to be more as Washington enters Pac-12 play.”

Sports writers are OK with being critical of coaches, teams, players, the rule book, the league, referees, team owners, when the season starts and ends, etc.

After each game, the press has access to coaches and players. All sorts of information is available all of the time.

In government, it is fully understood that people will not have access to complete information through everyday channels.

Ever hear of a Freedom of Information Act Request in sports? How about a denied FOIA request?

Ever see a pro football coach or quarterback refer reporters to his press secretary for answers? Presidents do so on a daily basis. Professionals are hired to provide only the desired version of answers to questions.

Can’t I Just Watch Baseball?

“The first ceremony was a moment of silence for those suffering from the Ukraine war. Ukrainians were mentioned; Russians weren’t. (I guess Russians aren’t suffering from the war.) The second ceremony marked a long trip to America for a Ukrainian refugee, a celebration, I suppose, of America’s willingness to let in a few refugees from that war. There’s nothing wrong with this, but what does it have to do with baseball? Why is it being celebrated on opening day at Fenway Park?

There is no place for such brazenly political ceremonies at a baseball game. It’s all emotional manipulation and state propaganda.”

No Credible Threat to DC Metro After NYC Subway Shooting: Officials

MARTA will increase security, says no credible threats following NYC subway attack

“The police chief of MARTA said there have been no credible threats against the metro Atlanta transit system following a mass shooting at a subway station in Brooklyn New York.”

 

April 12, 2022 Boston Herald

No ‘credible threat’ but full Boston Police call-up for Boston Marathon Monday

“There’s no “credible threat” to the upcoming Boston Marathon, authorities say as they nonetheless call up all available Boston cops and continue to talk to New York City authorities following the terrifying attack there.”

“Long said there’s no “credible threat” to the marathon at this point, though he said the BPD will continue to communicate with federal, state and other local law-enforcement entities and look at intelligence reports.”

Zero questions from newspeople on how intelligence reports were used to any advantage in the April 12, 2022, NYC mass shooting event.

 

Love to see newspeople show some initiative and curiosity in asking questions.

What we get now is sort of a press release style of news reporting where a statement is prepared by whatever agency was involved in the latest policy update, drug bust/federal grant money award, etc.

Newspeople post this statement as is. A 5th grade book report would require more in the way of asking questions.

Our questions appear in bold type below. We require no federal grant money in order to ask these questions.

 

Basic public policy questions newspeople will not ask:

What role did a post 911 surveillance state (fusion centers, license scanners, Homeland Security grant money, monitoring of e-mails, text messages, & social media sites, no fly/terror watch lists, Real ID, tracking of cell phones, etc.) play in preventing the April 12, 2022 NYC subway shooting?

What role did a $49.8 billion (every 12 months) US Dept. of Homeland Security play in preventing the April 12, 2022 NYC subway shooting?

 

No Credible Threat?

If the good guys can tell what the bad guys will do before they do it-surely, these powerful crime fighting tools will be used to shut down gang and cartel activity, heroin trafficking, bank robberies, mass casualty shootings, etc.

Where was the threat forecast prior to the April 12, 2022 NYC subway shooting?

 

Voting is highly emphasized in American culture. Asking questions related to public policy takes a lower priority.

Are newspeople forbidden to ask questions related to Homeland Security funding and performance?

 

Gun Control?

Why do newspeople avoid reporting on, and asking questions on the efficacy of past gun control measures?
