I had a 3 piece Suit Republican make the same statement you made at a social event to me.. My son is a U.S. Marine, who was at the time serving in the Iraq War. My son HAD a Choice and he Chose to drop out of college and join the USMC.
Even so, I went for the 3 piece Suit Republican, and if it hadn't been for my friends, I would have beat his hind end like a drum.....
The 3 piece Suit GOPer decided he was needed elsewhere......

Reality Check:
Most of these Boys have No Hope of going to College when they graduate High School. If they take a Job at a fast food restaurant or some other Minimum Wage Job, they have No Benefits, No Retirement, No Health Care, No Dental or Eye Care.
The U.S. Military offers all of these things and More.
Most of these Boys have made the Best Life Choice they can make to advance in the world.
They can earn a College Degree Paid For by the Military.
They have good opportunity for advancement and raises in the Military. For many of these Boys, there Is no other choice.
To make the Despicable Statement that you made is to suggest that they deserve to be killed or injured because they made the Choice to join the MIlitary.
What If YOU Had No Better Choice in Life, Mr. Republican TeaBagger?
You are almost as bad as TeaBagger. First of all you have chosen to believe that the majority of the military are not college material either by their social economic status or by their lack of intelligence. I will tell you this, the great majority of service men and women chose to serve by a sense of patriotism or by family tradition and in most cases both. Your belief is the stereotypical view of most liberals who have neither the courage or conviction to serve. You have insulted the intelligence of these brave men and women for choosing to postpone their education for the service of our country. This is their chosen profession and I salute all veterans for their sacrifices they have made so that I can freely live today.

Are you a complete Idiot? It does not matter if you are Einstein, if your family has no money to pay for you to go to college, your best bet is the Military. That is the gist of what I said. You are just looking for something, anything to attack me with.........

You're the complete idiot.

Ever heard of the following -

Student loans
Student grants
Scholarships
Actually working your way through school

Money doesn't keep youngsters from attending college. The lack of initiative does. You simply want to throw money at the symptoms of the problem rather than just fixing the problem.

You'll have to excuse me for not feeling all warm and fuzzy about the military "risking their lives to save my sorry azz" because the military failed to save the azzes of almost 3,000 people on 9/11 when it was caught with its pants down.
I Do Believe Republican President and Republican Commander-In-Chief G.W. Bush was in Charge of American Security on 911.

3,000 Dead Americans and NO Outcry from the Republicans for Investigations and Witch Hunts to find out why Republicans dropped the ball on Security.

Now Republicans Just Can't Shut Up Screaming about the lapse in Security that left Four (4) Americans Dead at Benghazi.

Gee, I wonder why 4 Dead Americans are vastly more important than 3,000 Dead American Murdered Right Here in America in broad daylight??????????

Hey "Patriot" if you think the military is such an easy deal why don't you sign up. You color blind? Got flat feet?. I got you don't know that they don't care if you're queer anymore- so just prance on down and sign up.
