A WORD TO JEANNIE LEAVITT, AN AMERICAN PILOT ON MILITARY RECRUITING USA SERVANTHOOD OF THE SKIES
Today I watched a news clip of one American pilot Jeanie Leavitt who made the comment when on military recruiting duties (and thus jets and weapons of warfare manufacturing sales for billionaires of the world):
Leavitt said: “It doesn’t matter what gender or religion you are, your success [as a military pilot] is based on performance. How many targets you hit.”
As the clip was promo-ed by NZ’s Pippa Wetzell working on the NZ tax payer’s dime, I am going to have a word about that.
Here’s what I think as a New Zealand citizen with Treaty Rights on top, to boot:
1. When America’s position in this world, is a currency over-printing syndrome to even get by, Jeannie’s tone didn’t fit with me well. A realization of more humility from Jeannie’s military trainers is needed. At the moment that is seriously lacking in Jeannie’s tone when Leavitt does press. It didn’t fit in the real world with me.
2. When over-printing currency to acquire what you need as a nation (such as fossil fuels acquistion) in a climate where the greatest American export industry thus far is offering debt bonds for other nations (China, Japan, Germany for example – buying up almost $1 trillion a piece) to buy foreign debt, run up on purpose, by the USA – Jeannie’s tone is also out-of-line with reality of people who are more conscious of preserving the planet for future generations.
Her trainers need to have a word to all male pilots first to tune that attitude and tone. Then Jeannie second.

3. Gender doesn’t matter. Religion is a matter of human rights. So for Jeannie to diss religion in her press from the USA, when religious wars are fuelled in this world to acquire more fuel for the USA and Americans driving on American roads, also was not wise. People like Jeannie who work for US military outlets, need an education on conservation (and non-discrimination) before they are used as puppets to acquire more fuel, sell more weapons (military jets too for billionaires) while hiding behind religious excuses to do that. Anyone can sit in a cock pit, yet to have the power over life and death in the skies, should require a better sense of reality than what Jeannie is demonstrating in her latest press. Otherwise, take her privileges away from her, until that tone comes right.
4. NZ does need military jets.
5. We do want women pilots “hitting targets” in the future, as Jeannie’s excellent “hit rates” in the skies paint a picture of for women all over the world, yet we do not condone discrimination of religion from New Zealand in order to flog jet sales and fuel acquisition to even fuel those jets as sourced from shores outside of the USA’s borders. Security is about humility that furthers peace in a game where war should always be the final solution to maintaining peace. That was not in Jeannie’s tone, so perhaps Leavitt needs an attitude adjustment session.
Conclusion: In being the best at what you do (regardless of religion and gender) always remember (if American) that much of your fuel in the past years has come from nations who are Arab suppliers, who just so happen to have been Muslim too. To diss that after you’ve used their fuel supply chain to even get about, in past years, shows a lack of manners, class, decorum and living with a continued inability to live a life outside of entitled brat behavior. Mr Obama‘s gig the last four years, is supposed to have reigned in that attitude somewhat. Yet today, Jeanie still has it. Not cool. Alright, that’s something for people like Jeanie to mull over.
Thanks for the news America. Let’s lift your game, with manners, decorum and human dignity – if you want to have fuel (and credibility – USA’s schtick right now on foreign policy as posited by Presidential candidate newcomer Mitt Romney recently) with nations outside of the USA in the future.
And in the mode of all US Presidents and military commemorations and celebrations, may God Bless America with wisdom and humility, realizing it takes many nations (including Muslim Arab nations too) who have all traded with the USA to make America great.
Okay, that’s enough military etiquette lessons for today! Geez Jeannie! Girl, if ‘riding the skies’, then reign that pride in with a view of your nation’s history. I write this in love so you can fly better, and longer exemplifying a spirit of peace more in your comments.
And a quick note to our lovely Ms. Wetzell: think issues through more before you air a story and front it with your tax payer funded mug, to stay cute and good at what you do. Journalism is about doing a 360 on all news issues presented. That is smartness 101. Stay smart and lovely. If you want your grand-children to have oil and great grand children, then smarten up. (Much love).
(Wow! I am feeling 25% military today. Can’t wait to ramp it to 100% to make NZ smarter. This post written by a man who grew up as the youngest kid with four older sisters, (and a bro in Australia too, thirty odd years there), so from a well informed gendered perspective – more so than most, Jeannie still needs a slight fossil fuels-awareness attitude adjustment of gratitude before she fuels a plane and takes to the skies in it).
Final conclusion: In this news story, I just want to see what Jeannie does. I don’t want to hear her views the way she rolls with the wrong tude right now. If she inspires and gets more women at top level into the skies, awesome. What a leader.
Yet it’s how you do it, without inciting war, in order to preserve the earth that is is wisdom in action of a good pilot. When you use the religion word, you run the risk of increasing war. That may give you a job to “bomb more targets” through increased war and make Jeannie feel more like a military pilot in action longer - yet the air quality in the planet can’t sustain Jeannie’s view. So not cool from the USA today, for our allied long term best interests.
Honestly: I LOVE the way she flies. Hot! :)
Pippa Wetzell, a NZ treasure… Still, use your suede more. :)
Fox News also covers Jeannie’s story.
