MILITARY RECRUITMENT - 9/7 JOB FAIR IN THE ASTRODOME

NO SCAVENGING THE GULF COAST CRISIS TO BOOST THE DEPLETED RANKS OF THE MILITARY!

Stop the military from preying upon the vulnerable! Come educate youth dislocated from their lives and communities – facing homelessness, joblessness and often hopelessness – about the false promises of recruiters!

Doling out food to the hungry crowds overflowing Houston’s Astrodome, the National Guard has engaged in ad hoc recruiting in recent days. Tomorrow, September 7, 2005, the U.S. military is conducting a Job Fair in the Astrodome in a blatant effort to exploit the despair of masses of Americans evacuated from the Gulf Coast. Once signed up, even if purportedly to reconstruct their region, they could easily find themselves deployed to Iraq, left with medical coverage for only two for only combat-related injury and the expectations for training eviscerated. And if they sign up on the promise of temporary relief, they could find themselves bound for extended tours of duty. Download info from the formidable Counter-Recruitment resources on the United for Peace and Justice site. united for peace and justice.org. Come and speak truth to empower! Call for a real jobs program which employs people to reconstruct the entire Gulf Coast region for the benefit of those in need, not to pander to corporate greed!

3 hots and a cot...and an M-16...

Too many people on both sides of the spectrum have fallen into this mentality that a full one half of the country are the enemy for having different beliefs...in a country based on freedom of expression. It is this infighting that allows the focus to be taken away from "we the people" being able to watch, and have control over government corruption and ineptitude that is running rampant in our leadership.

People should be working towards fixing problems, not creating them.

I would just like to state I posted this how I found it, I do not know if this is 100% accurate, but it would not surprise me one little bit if it was.

All the best

If its true, it sounds like an exploitation just to get recruits which is sad. I dont think thats the time and place to be doing that as people are still grieving and dealing with issues and shock of everything being ripped away from them. Have they no compassion. That act seems a bit insensitive to me.

Ya sounds just like the thing to do coming from Bush. I mean it's more recruits for his not needed war. What about the familys that the medical don't cover and such? That's the lowest Bush could go...

Giving people jobs is bad? It wasn't only the recruiters of the National Guard... other businesses are there to. It's called a job fair! Bet you were to blind with hatred to see the owner of the car lot from AZ giving out jobs. happy.gif

Damn those military types for sneaking into a job fair with respectable employers and trying to get recruits that could be trained in a myriad of skill sets!

Damn them all to heck.

I posted this up as I found it interesting, it is protesting that the army are there looking for recruits from people that are venerable, shouldn’t they be jobs that will help the towns be rebuilt? You don’t have to be in the army to do that.

There not forcing the people in the Army as you are suggesting. Sure, those people lost it all but they need jobs and money to support a family. A short term enlistment in the Armed Forces would help them a lot. AGAIN there were other people there besides Armed Forces, so it is by choice. yes.gif

As for the other comment, "All the best" yourself buddy. thumbsup.gif Just because a warning shot is fired doesn't mean we can't voice our opinions against your blind hatred. happy.gif

I am aware of the pinned thread Faeden.  I've already stated my position on it.

Do you really want to keep playing that card every time a member of the SC disagrees with you?  And do you really want to keep bringing it up publicly?

But many people join the army Kratos when they are desperate, I just do not think it is a very good time to be trying to get people to join now.

Guys, just stop the bickering back and forth; that goes for everybody.

The topic of this thread is the US Military recruiting in the wake of Katrina, and not who is more of a butthead boogerface. Everyone is aware of my earlier post regarding the PM, and there is no need to bring it up again.

Leave the hostilities behind and stay on topic.

Thank You

Hi JMPD1

No I reply to people who disagree with me, but I put up the link because it was obvious there is a lot of hate for me here, by mostly "The steel Circle" folk, they are not just disagreements, its a vendetta.

All the best

As many folks have lost their homes and their jobs(hell, everything they owned), the military is not such a bad option of they are of that mind.

If a person never wanted to join, the offer will not change their mind in the least. If a young person was on the fence in regards to joining, it might push them towards joining. Either way no one is forced to do so; it is always optional.

Is it in poor taste? probably. Is it illegal? no. It offers a chance for folks that are in need to be able to provide for themselves and their families. As our country really isn't like the UK, we have little support for displaced people. There will be some support, but we do not have the social systems that you do.

Some of the people will have insurance and will be able to recoup some of the losses that they have experienced, but a small percentage. Most people will not have insurance, and will have also lost their jobs. Yes there will be a few thousand dollars given to the folks displaced, but that is just a drop in the barrel when you have to start over again.

It is an option that could help people in a bad situation.
