We try not to go into politics and the like here on LooseRounds.com, but lately I keep seeing the same bullshit said elsewhere that I just have to rant about it.
I used to see and hear people express how we needed a draft to straighten out the children of this nation. Now I tend to see it stated differently. Usually it is something like, “My daughter is a drug addict and can’t hold a job, I’m trying to get her to join the military.”
Now there are a good number of problems with this mentality. The military has a job, stuff along the lines of the common defense of our nation and the projection of force in order to support the interests of our country, etc. The various jobs of the military don’t include being a daycare or therapy for your fucked up kid.
Our military works in stressful situations doing vital tasks. Conscripting the military full of people who don’t want to be there, or are unable to function, is only going to reduce the capability and smooth operation of our military. Doing this is only going to is making it harder on the people who are there to get the job done.
The people who want want the military to be their kid’s parent are the same type of scum who want to strip us of our rights and hand over all power to the government. They are they sort of people who want the Big Brother Government to fix all our issues including being a parent for their kid and other peoples kids. They are being selfish idiots who want to pawn off their problems on someone else and let everyone else’s tax dollars pay for it.
Our Military is a place for professionals doing a dangerous and important jobs, not a daycare for your poorly raised child.
