    "Rangel says men join the army only if they can’t have “a decent career.”

    And Rangel is only a politician because he can't hold an honest job.

    Nah, Rangel is only a politician because he's a condescending, lying, pandering, moronic douchebag. That also means he can't hold an honest job.

    This is almost as bad as my boss, who thinks that the troops only support the war because they've been brainwashed.

    Since troops fight the wars in a REAL personal way, it would be rather stupid for them to support something they don't believe in. Troops aren't anywhere near as stupid as the lefties would have us believe, nor are they "brainwashed."

    Civilians are retrained to live a military lifestyle and perform military jobs. There is no political indoctrination.

    I'm pretty stunned at some of the crap he's been spewing.....

    He was in the military...
    I never disliked Rangel before, I just figured he was a kook..
    But now I'm beginning to really dislike him...

    :mad:

    The guy is a moron. I joined because I needed more life experience before going to school... I believed it would benefit me greatly, and it did. My SAT scores were enough to get me scholarships yet I chose to go in when I did, not only for the experience, but to go to the absolute best language school in North America, the Defense Language Institute in Monterey California...

    The idea that I would go in just because I had no chance at a decent career is not only insulting, but just plain wrong. And I went in during Gulf War I... Geez, what a Unitard...
