    Here's some frightening data:

    A recruiter I spoke to believes that more than 70 percent of the “targeted recruiting age range” is not able to join due to issues with health, education, criminal background, and physical appearance preferences that do not adhere to military recruitment standards. They are generally not qualified for military service, even if they wanted to join.

    And, from what I've read, if they do enlist, a lot of them simply do not possess the sense of responsibility to stick to what it takes to adapt to the military. So, those who do enlist and stick it out come from military families - turning the military into an inbred, mercenary force?

    This is the end product of the Feminazi's and their equal rights to destroy the REAL man.

    I think we have enough "inbreds' from the South to fill the military... but never mind.

    Here's the thing, the military raises its standards when those jobs are hard to come by, and they drop them when they really need the manpower, which is how you get guys like Manning and Bergdahl and that whackadoodle who shot up the church.

    Do you think when we had conscription, they were taking the best of the best? Nope, they just took who couldn't find an exemption, and that was usually poor people.

    If he was fat, you ran his ass around the PT course a few more times. If he was dumb, you made him a cook.

    Of course, if we minded our own business and didn't get involved in fights all over the world protecting rich countries that don't want to be bothered, we probably could get enough people, easily.

    What with all the faggots and dumbasses the libtard schools are turning out, it is not surprising. Soon the country will implode under the weight of all the do nothings that get paid for doing nothing at the expense of those who work.

    Military is often a stepping stone for women and men who have grown up in lower class families or situations. Americans pretend class doesn't exist but it surely does and the wealthy want no part of serving country. That's just where we are are as a nation. Can anyone really imagine Trump or family serving the nation as an example. An interesting read on class is: White Trash: The 400-Year Untold History of Class in America by Nancy Isenberg

    I joined the military back in the late 1970's because not only did I want to serve my country and protect it from Communism, but also wanted to work on jets, to obtain skills, so I wouldn't be a liberal welfare queen. Today, I have amassed a small fortune (top 5%) able to fix just about anything, and now the Commies are in my country trying to take all that I have earned, so those who sit on their liberal asses can vote for the very people who keep them poor. Go figure.

    So let me get this straight... you gained a skill the government paid for so you can get work the government pays for, and you got the nerve to call other people welfare queens.

    Most poorpeople have jobs.

    Simple enough solution. Provide a job for every American that pays a living wage. But give them real job protections.
