This is brilliant. Nice clean way to say “F U Jon Carry”...I mean John Kerry...I mean J F’n K...or is it asshole? I guess I’m not as nice about it as these gentlemen in the picture.
Certainly the best “FU” I have seen.
And the most well-deserved one, as well.
A friend of mine sent me this picture in an E-mail and told me that these guys are all in his unit, and he helped create the sign.
I don’t know if he was BSing me or not, but probably not.
Even bigger putz, Squggler - taken with his Vietnam era stance that the draft was unfair to the poor and minority - who weren’t able to ‘defer’ themselves out, Senator Kerry seems to think that the US just should not have a military, since it is unfair to the poor and minority (you know the stupid ones stuck in Iraq; see above).
Well here goes:
>However, our research shows that the volunteer force is already equitable.
We found that whites are one of the most proportionally represented groups—making up 77.4 percent of the population and 75.8 percent of all recruits—whereas other racial categories are often represented in noticeably higher and lower proportions than the general population.
After September 11, 2001, the educational quality of recruits rose slightly. Comparing 1999 enlisted recruits to 2003 recruits showed an increase in collegiate experience. In 2003, a higher proportion of recruits had college experience and diplomas, and a lower percentage had only a high school diploma— a shift of about 3 percentage points.
We found that recruits tend to come from middle class areas, with disportionately fewer from low-income areas.<

So I guess Kerry is the stupid one here - this just shows he doesn’t have clue.
I love it!
How’s the MSM doing with this one? Hmmmmmm?
btw Squiggler, I remember the black/brown/dummy argument when the volunteer military was being debated - do you have lexus nexus?
