Quote from: tofit on April 01, 2018, 03:40:52 AMBack when I was a liberal, I couldn't join the military because I tried to advocate cannabis. Now I'm more conservative and feel like I need to be because America seems to have an internal war that we are just barely winning. We've got so many immigrants that we could easily get sabotaged in many areas of our government. What's our line of defense if Africa is suddenly secretly united and they covertly declare war on us. It makes me wonder how many active reserves are in my area. I really hope we keep our military stocked with enough people to fend off the threat of war.
Quote from: Belenus on April 01, 2018, 11:39:25 PMWhat flashed into my mind as I read this was that commercial where the fat kid 'walks' the dog on the treadmill and then phones disabled grandma for another soda pop.I actually try not to think like one of those 'conspiracy' guys, but the softening of the last two generations by encouraging self-indulgence, low expectations, low ambitions, produced a whiny population unfit for any resistance whether the threat is physical, moral, or intellectual.The progressives- who are anything but *progressive*- have gifted this nation with a massive supply of Nancy-boys and those poor creatures must appear to the hard-body aggressors as 'ripe fruit'.And, might I add, I see this as neither a democrat nor a republican problem but a cultural problem we have brought upon ourselves.(Have you ever tried imagining the consequences that loss of cell phone capability would bring to our youth?)
Quote from: Solar on April 02, 2018, 12:41:00 AMYeah, it is a cultural problem, one the left manipulated to their advantage of killing off the American spirit of "Can Do".Can you imagine the crippling issues this Nation would suffer if the need arose to call for a Draft? Heaven forbid!
Quote from: Belenus on April 02, 2018, 04:56:45 AMDRAFT?! Man, I would not want to be a DI.Try imagining that duty.
Quote from: Solar on April 02, 2018, 06:40:08 AMUghhh, I joined during the draft with a bunch of draftees, nearly half were kicked out near the beginning of basic training, the rest?Well, many wound up cooks, this explains army food.
