I said nothing about college. I responded specifically regarding the military. 10s of thousands, to 100s of thousands, and sometimes millions of dollars are spent training EACH individual servicemember.....now imagine them sidelined because they got VD from some Korean bar girl.
You can stand there and say they should be ordered...blah blah blah all day long. In the end they are going to do what they are going to do. Even with the 'free' condoms etc, I still know several guys that have had 'their bores punched' and several females with bastard children. There could be a lot more. The difference is the military is already Constitutionally subsidized by the taxpayer. Now, do I think TriCare should pay for abortions? No because I believe it is murder.
Do I have a problem with with TriCare paying for condoms in the hopes LCpl Shmuckatelli will remember to use one somewhere between excited and too excited to care? No. I'd rather that than have him catch some VD (that he'd deserve) and waste all the time, money, and effort training him - On top of his unit going in short.
I am a social conservative; however, I am smart enough to know that the military is not comprised of all choir boys. Remember, the military consists of people that are trained to KILL.
Too bad. You play with fire, you get burned. Maybe instead of keeping a condom bowl the military should invest their resources in keeping the whores away from their men.
