    Ilhan Omar under fire for saying benefits of G.I. Bill should be applied ‘to everybody’

    :lol: Man, this stuff here is exhibit A as to why Trump is going to cruise to victory in November. Yeah, lets take a program designed to encourage military service by rewarding veterans with tuition assistance and just give it away to everybody for free. Free stuff! Free stuff! Oh, and lets also forgive all student loan debt, rewarding all the scumbags who shirk the responsibility to pay off these loans and just say "F you" to all the people who worked hard to pay for college.

    I guess these morons never heard the old adage "when you're in a hole, stop digging." Keep up the good work squad members!

        Well, moot point when Sanders wins the presidency and the Dems take both houses.

        College will be free for everyone, student loans will be forgiven, free public transportation for everyone, free healthcare, free internet, free cell phones for everyone.


        Did I miss anything?

          Welcome to America. Come on in. Sit on your azz and we will take care of you. We will give you everything and even more. It is simply amazing how just a few idiots can hijack the narratives and get gazillions of people to come along. More than half of our society is made up of sheep, lemmings and penguins!

                It’s not as easy to get in as it used to be, I remember a guy at MEPS decades ago that it was his 6th try.

                Not to knock him or anyone, but the military isn’t about # of bodies anymore. Technology is a force multiplier.

                  It was either repetitive failed drug tests, medical/injury history issues, or he's the dumbest sumbltch alive. That's just the truth.

                    For a second there, I thought this was the sports forum and you were talking about Antonio Callaway.

                      No high school diploma. Enlisting was his only way out of the small town he was in. Yeah, he wasn’t bright until you started talking about mechanics.

                      Yeah, he probably was up there in the dumb part but he genuinely wanted to serve as well. There were a lot of folks that signed up for the benefits that turned out to be ‘conscientious objectors’ to military assignments. Screw them.

                      I’m not going to knock him or anyone that tries to join the services. It’s not for everyone, I bailed when my time was up but miss the camaraderie and sense of purpose.

                      Not to hijack this thread, or to say that being able to enlist is difficult but the standards to get in are much higher, today, than they were in the past. Recruiters have always had limits to hit and those limits fluctuate based on region, Presidents, and turmoil, among other things, but currently recruiters have the ability to be VERY selective and when they need to fill the less desirable AFSC or MOS, etc. then they will take "rocks".

                      Now back to your regularly scheduled nonsense about a rag head giving stuff she knows nothing of and is merely doing so to just needle our soldiers.

                            Yeah me and the POTUS had bone spurs LOL.......Seriously though when I was first eligible for the draft was 1969 when they had the lottery draw. My doctor told my dad he could write my records up to keep me out of the draft, dad told him not to worry about it my lottery number was 362.
