Writing in Righteous Indignation, Breitbart noted that, “the left doesn’t win its battles in debate. It doesn’t have to. In the 21st century, media is everything. The left wins because it controls the narrative. The narrative is controlled by the media. The left is the media and narrative is everything.”

OK, you hade me there for a minute. We will now insert the obligatory "if you ain't Cav, you ain't shit" remark.

If you ain't cav, you ain't shit.
It makes me want to play "Ride of the Valkyries" at top volume.
'cause it scares Hell outa the slopes.
In a related note, the air force will adopt loafers, faded jeans and polo shirts to better reflect their relaxed corporate style.
"Every day is casual Friday in the Air Force."

Released on April 1st and only I noticed?
Basic training will be extended and extra 4 weeks for sabre training.
Advanced training will include mounted tactics from ground vehicles and helicopters.
"Private Schultz try not to cut your own retraining strap this time."
As a history major and lover of tradition, I like this omage to the Army's cavalry days. These hats are WAY better than those stupid berets.

As a Marine, I like the way the Marine Corps eschews any special unit patches, unit headgear and "seasonal" innovations. OUR uniform stands out by saying, "We are the Marine Corps. There is no better identifier than the Eagle, Globe and Anchor."
Wellp ... mebbe next Apr1, they'll go with dragoon helmets for the cav (you know, with the leopard-skin motif) an' tricorns for infantry. I hear the AF is goin' with leather helmets'n goggles for air crews. Navy's goin' with T-shirts, officers will have silk-screened fringed epaulets with hats made from folded newspapers.
"Whoever saw a dead cavalryman..." Gen. D.H. Hill, CSA.
That actually had me going for a minute.

I mean, given how we've started dressing up infantrymen to look like wing wipers, you have to admit that any amount of uniform retardation is extremely plausible in today's Army.
So Roger, I presume that if you are cav, then you are shit?
