Here is a military professional who time and time again uses the term Sir & Ma’am as  a professional response. How else could the “senator” mean her public demonstration other than a slap in the Generals face? “I worked so hard to get that title.” She says….and he hasn’t worked hard to get the title “General”? Typical one sided….do as I say not as I do. I watched the entire video and she never addresses him as General once…….Brilliant… the pic to see the video. A different version below…

Col. Jessep: Senator, we live in a world that has walls and those walls need to be guarded by men with guns. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Lieutenant Weinberg? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago and curse the Marines; you have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know: that Santiago's death, while tragic, probably saved lives and that my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use then as the backbone of a life trying to defend something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said "thank you," and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest that you pick up a weapon and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to.

  1. Ma’am: related words: dame, gentlewoman, lady, madam
    In Britain a term used in addressing the queen or princess
    Barbara Boxer is right.
    She proved by her condescending tone and distain toward this honorable man and the warriors he represents she is none of those things.

  2. This ‘female’ seems to have her “Boxers in a Wad” and does NOT deem it necessary to recognize the ‘Warrior’ in front of her who truly understands the “Cost of Freedom”.
    Can you say NO INTEGRITY.
    It is too bad that that “mass of goo” that is residing in the general area of the skull, near the location of just behind the eyes and right between the ears, has NOT the ability to function in a relative manner know as “intelligent thought” for this ‘female’.
    What a terrible “black-eye” this ‘female’ is giving to the “Females of this Country” especially for those of us who actually do have “intelligent thoughts” and can voice those thoughts in an “elegant manor”.
    also for those of us who greatfully recognize the ‘Warrior’, his/her time and effort to gain his/her rank as well as the life-risk that he/she takes to order to fulfil his/her mission or duty.

    Intelligent thoughts??
    elegant expressed??
    But their mine, all mine.

  3. It just goes to show how petty those on the far left are. I was taught to use Ma’am when addressing women to show respect.
    It’s too bad Barbara Boxer can’t show a little respect for one of our nations hero’s.

  4. What may one expect from an arrogant, self centered politican that cares only about her NEXT election? I’d follow a PFC USMC into combat, even after all officers, SNCOS and NCOS have been KIA or WIA. It has happened in the Corps History. Leadership is grilled into a recruit from the minute either he or she enters Boot Camp. I wouldn’t follow Senator Boxer across the street. I did say Senator — correct “Mam”.

  5. Sen. Boxer Offers No Apology for Rebuking Brigadier General Who Called Her ‘Ma’am’
    Aside from a briefly worded statement about a “friendly” conversation she had with an Army brigadier general after dressed him down a day earlier for calling her “ma’am,” Sen. Barbara Boxer remained silent Friday in the face of growing criticism as to whether she owed an apology.

  6. What can I say? I should apologize on behalf of the state of California. Ms. Boxer is an embarrassment to most Californians except the nit-wits that keep voting her into office. I cannot stand to watch her,or Ms. Nancy. Both are cut from the same cloth. Both come from “up north”, as the rest of us shake our heads.

  7. Dungeon Fighter Online Gold in the game you may or may not notice. I know vitality is very tempting in Dungeon Fighter Gold. You may be feeling intelligence in DFO Gold. You are going to be getting crab pincers which like buy DFO Gold, depending on which server you are on.
