Would you ever consider joining the military?
Why or why not? Are you in the military right now? Why did you or did you not join?
I considered it plenty of times. I didn't join though because I have a girlfriend here of 4 years. We live together, and I wouldn't be able to just leave her here by herself.
Proudly served and yes Id do it again. I personally believe every American has a duty to serve their nation in some capacity for the libertys and freedom they have.
I was in the military many years ago. I would have attempted to avoid it then if I had my present knowledge of how this country (the U.S.) has deteriorated. The public/electorate, politicians, "intellectuals", corporate media, and large corporations (corporate executives) have sold this country out (the U.S.). To me, it has long been not worth defending. There is no longer any difference between this country and all the socialist/fascist countries of Europe.

I was an army officer who resigned with an impeccable record after Iraq.
I would not recommend military service unless more of these conservative windbags start serving. If not, you will just feel like you are being used by contractors and politicians. There is no worse feeling than having a rich, healthy, 22-year-old young man with a trust fund thanking you for your service; like you're his butler. Deep down, he's thinking "service is for suckers". The army is no longer some democratic cross section of American society. It has devolved into a braindead constabulary force; similar to mall cops or prison guards. I hate to say it. I saw a lot of very intelligent soldiers in the lower ranks and they all looked utterly miserable.
If you insist on serving, try the Air Force, Navy, or Marines first. The army is terrible and thrives on incompetence. It has a hyper-conservative mantra and is borderline mutinous under Democratic presidents.

"..._Worst of all, this is a vision that says even though America can't afford to invest in education or clean energy; even though we can't afford to care for seniors and poor children, we can somehow afford more than $1 trillion in new tax breaks for the wealthy. Think about it. In the last...

David Lapan@DaveLapanDC"Over 30+ years as a U.S. Marine, I defended our country against its true enemies. In 20+ years as a USMC, Pentagon and DHS spokesman, I dealt w/ the news media nearly every day. I know quite a bit about the press and know this -- they are NOT the enemy of the American...
