Graduation from a uniformed services academy or any college for that matter should be a time of fun and dedication to the accomplishments of the graduates. It should inspire, not be preachy, and it should be based on the reality of where they are going in life. Unfortunately, our President once again chose to use the occasion to stoke the political fires once more, this time talking about the nonsense of how climate change is the biggest security threat to America.
Come on, Mr. President, get a life and face reality. The farce that is man made climate change is now apparent to a large majority of American; it doesn't even rate in the top categories of the threats we face. Iran, ISIS, a potential financial collapse due to living beyond our means and the constant push to change the way America works or fails to do so are things that people are concerned about. We've seen time and again how the numbers have been rigged for your beloved climate change and it is becoming common knowledge that the change is mostly caused by things beyond our control like nature (the sun). And climate has changed naturally since time began so using a bunch of rigged climate models that don't hold true to empiricism is just a One World Order scheme to garner more control over increasingly unwilling subjects.
Of course when reporters asked selected new ensigns they got a favorable response to your remarks. What else do you think they would say to a national audience? But seriously, Mr. President, couldn't you have left your malarkey and dogma for another time and just let the grads and their families savor the moment. But, alas, no you can't because once again it was all about you. And since you won't face the truth due to your ideological blinders, I guest we're just stuck with the same old, same old in all that you do for the remainder of your term. How sad that you turned an opportunity to bring America together into another divide and conquer event.
But to you Coast Guard grads out there and all Coasties past and present, I'll just say "Semper Paratus", for I know that you are always prepared. I celebrate your mission and your duty as we expect great things from the new officers who will now be joining you. God bless Coasties everywhere, all of our men and women in uniform and God bless the United States of America.
