Recruiters Target Hurricane Survivors At Astrodome


From the Wall Street Journal:

    “Ten U.S. Army recruiters are offering volunteer help for Katrina evacuees at Houston’s Astrodome. But the recruiters, struggling to keep enlistment up during Iraq war, are also available with options for the jobless. “Our intent is to approach the evacuees at the right time for them,” says Army spokesman Douglas Smith.”

    How dare Army recruiters try to sign up folks for a job after a disaster!!! I mean I guess the red cross, hospitals, hotels, schools and others WHO WERE ALSO THERE SHOULD BE BLAMED AS WELL RIGHT!!! HOW DARE they try to get folks off welfare and working again, I mean who will the Democrats and liberal assholes like yourself get their power base from if these folks actually get jobs and make money.

    Army Recruiting From The New Orlean’s Refugees

    The slogan must be, “Your Government refused to come to you so why don’t you come to it”! Counter Recruiter reports a troubling story that the Army is using the misery of the refugees as an opening for recruiting for the Armed Forces. This perpetuates …

    The implication seems to be that the recruiter’s actions are less than noble, but I fail to see how this is so. Service in the defense of one’s country is noble service, regardless of politics, and regardless of country. Would the author have expressed similar outrage if it was learned that representatives from the Peace Corps were also assisting evacuees? Opportunity knocks in unorthodox places.
