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?
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.
Me thinks thou doest protest too much
That's it! Surrender now! Bring the boys home.
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.
If these kids are not weaned by the time they are in High School there must be something going on.
If this 17 or 18 year old male let's his Momma run his life, what branch would want him?
The almost 100 people who turned out in the San Diego region, a heavily militarized area home to a Marine base and Navy Seals, were part of a nation-wide call to meet on the first day of June, put out by MMOB, The Main Street Moms Operation Blue. MMOB, a relatively new grassroots group, is taking a page out of the Howard Dean playbook and rallying people though a well-orchestrated internet campaign.
According to Charlie Imes, chair of the local chapter of Democracy for America (DFA), the MMOB contacted him and asked him to put the Military Recruiter discussion at the top of the night's agenda. "They asked and I said great," said Imes, who was enthusiastic about the night's turnout.
Twenty miles north in Carlsbad, dozens of people turned out to hear speakers and to fill out opt out forms, according to Jeeni Criscenzo, a member of the North County Peace and Justice Coalition who coordinated the event with MMOD.
The opt out form is provided for in section 9528, A, 1. of the No Child Left Behind Act, in part, because school receiving federal funding are required to provide the following:
"1) ACCESS TO STUDENT RECRUITING INFORMATION- Notwithstanding section 444(a)(5)(B) of the General Education Provisions Act and except as provided in paragraph (2), each local educational agency receiving assistance under this Act shall provide, on a request made by military recruiters or an institution of higher education, access to secondary school students names, addresses, and telephone listings..." in addition to granting recruiters physical access to the campus or lose much needed federal funds. (http://www.ed.gov/policy/elsec/leg/esea02/pg112.html)
The opt out form makes the child's information unavailable to military recruiters and puts the child on a do not call list. Federal law requires school districts to inform parents about the opt out form. While some school districts list the form on either the school district website or the high school website, the San Diego school district does not.
A brief glance at MMOB's website showed at least 20 such meetings planned for June 1, from Bakersfield to Boston. More are listed throughout the month of June.
OK then, it's time to do what Israel does and make military service mandatory for 2 years.
Recruiters to mom....He is not your child any more.
Love these threads...same ol', same ol' will be re-hashed, and I'll read for the enjoyment...
yet another crack pot left wing organization given instant legitimacy by the MSM loonies.
They will have no future unless all Americans pull together and fight for a future - these mothers are wrong, they are teaching their children to let someone else "do it". Freedom doesn't work that way........................
What does this comment say about the schools these kids are attending, as well as the parents own contributions to their kid's future?
Fuuny. She's not braying about her kid having conversations with crack dealers.
