Do you want some candy, little boy?

Does anybody else think it's creepy that the military is using pizza, free i-tunes and videogames to lure young men into joining? I mean, isn't that the way child molesters and christian youth groups get their subjects?

Same article, Charles Moskos, a military recruiting expert and professor emeritus at Northwestern University, says if they really want to support the military, it's time for the Bush family to get some skin in the game.
Military recruiters in the United States acknowledge that getting first daughter Jenna Bush to join would be a far bigger boost than even doubling the recruiting budget again, Moskos said.

  • That is truly disgusting, but I know they will do whatever it takes to lure the kids into this war machine. The recruiters get special "salesmanship" classes. What's it gonna take to get you in this war, young man?
