The agonized frenzy of the liberal me me me generation as reality hits them in their quivering lying mouths.
Wasn't "The BigGirl" quoted as coming out against military recruiting on public schools?
I find the policies covered in No Child Left Behind Act that address the issue of turning over children's names to the government for recruiting more than a little disconcerting as well. Does that make me a liberal?
As long as we treat 17-21 year olds as if they were still children, our problems will continue to multiply.
The usual run of anti-American snivelers.
Maybe her son will decide to escape a life of unwashed, whiny leftism by joining the Army! At least he'd meet some straight women with skills!
But recruiting, absolutely not.
Well, if it does, that's 2 of us.
Boy, you said it, Jim! Nothing infuriates me more than when someone refers to our soldiers in Iraq as "boys & girls." Makes me sick, actually.
As Joan Rivers would say, Grow Up, America!
A) support an additional $28 billion+ in wasted tax dollars for an unconstitutional program and
B) have no problem with federal funds being withheld from a school if they refuse to turn over a list of names of students to the government for recruiting.
Who said Republicans were conservative and for limited government? Apparently not anymore
Me thinks thou doest protest too much
That's it! Surrender now! Bring the boys home.
" ... fine for the military to speak ... but recruiting, absolutely not."
Can you explain the distinction you're making between "speaking" and "recruiting"?
Sounds like you got a basic problem with military recruiters recruiting high school students. What is that problem?
I just read an article about the terrorists and guards at Gitmo. The terrorists openly rebel against our MPs with physical violence, (punching, throwing metal chairs, tossing urine at them, spitting on them, banging on cell bars, etc). When the guards retaliate they get demoted, fined and punished in various ways. When you look at this ridiculous punishment of our troops by our own military, coupled with troops in Iraq and Afghanistan who got courtmarshalled for shooting wounded terrorists or "abusing" maniacal insurgents at Abu Graihab, it's no wonder why it's getting hard to recruit new men.
The entire NCLB boondoggle is unconstitutional and outrageous. (The only reason I don't totally spit on it is that the NEA hates it :-).
But putting that aside, briefly, do you think military recruiters shouldn't be allowed to go to high schools to promote joining the service as an option for graduates?
He who pays the piper calls the tune. Its all based on federal money--don't accept the money & don't provide the lists. Private schools can do that now.
