Radio Derb is on the air—go here to listen, here to download the MP3. Sample quote:
Our military is totally signed on to our state ideology of diversity. This comes from the top, from the civilian leadership. The Secretary of the Army, Eric Fanning, for example, is openly homosexual.

131217-f-fc975-043The Secretary of the Air Force seems not to be homosexual, but she is a female, and strongly committed to diversity. She has a problem there, though. Quote from a news report, October 2nd, quote:

There are still numerous key positions that don't seem to attract diverse candidates, namely pilots, cyber operations, intelligence operations and space and missile operations, which is very upsetting to Air Force officials.
End quote. Poor things! I can imagine how upset they must be. Not to worry, though: the Secretary of the Air Force is on the case. Last year she introduced nine initiatives to increase diversity in the service — to, as she explains, make the demographics of the service match more closely with the changing demographics of America.

Alas, last year's nine initiatives didn't do the trick. Transgendered black Hispanics still don't want to fly fighter jets. So this month the Secretary, Deborah Lee James, announced thirteen new initiatives. More initiatives! More initiatives!

Meanwhile, in totally unrelated news, the Air Force is desperately short of pilots and mechanics: 700 pilots and 4,000 mechanics short.

That's distressing, to be sure; but so long as Secretary James is on the case, at least the service won't be short of initiatives.
