U.S. Army Waiting List Near Record Levels With High Unemployment, GI Bill

• ABC News
The Army entered the new recruiting year in October having fulfilled 50 percent, or half its targeting goals for next year.

The number is a near record for the Army. The last time in recent decades the waiting list was so long was 1996, when the Delayed Entry Pool was at 42.9 percent at the start of the fiscal year.

In recent years, the Army lowered standards to boost recruitment, including allowing those with low test scores and even criminal records to join. But after years of such incentives and hefty bonuses, recruitment interest has not only surged but the quality of Americans who have expressed interest has improved considerably.

Well I certainly hope the new brainwashed recruits do not think they are fighting

for America when they are shipped off to the middle east, S. Korea or some other

foreign country.  Fighting for America means disbanning AIPAC, private reserve,

NAFTA, NWO, duel citizenship, no free trade, prosecuting war criminals, treasonous

politicians, BP, any illegal alien, and taxing the hell out of corporations.  Also, Israel

with their US paid for universal health care, stop the bloodsucking and blackmailing

from this illegal state.  America first and only America.

OK deep breath, we know, it's axiomatic that the military of any nation is a refuge in times of economic crisis. But a waiting list? A WAITING LIST? OK so who's not watching the news? And has anyone heard our recruiting standards have gone to mush?

Hey anybody get a kick out of those pics of gang symbols spray painted in Iraq? Bloods, Crips and Aryan Nations? Fun stuff huh? They got caught sending M16's back to their buddies! Hoo ha, ain't that a knee-slapper?

Well I can't think but for a second that the US military apparatus won't make room for all these fine people. Or maybe divert them to any other of the many fine branches of the national security state. DHS just loves warm bodies and it don't particularly care where it gets 'em.

Pretty soon we'll have 50% of the nation incarcerated and the other 50% guarding them and you'd be able to switch populations on any given day and not notice any difference atall.
