"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

Nascar Fans

The target of the Army's latest recruitment drive...
The U.S. Army is using an interactive display at Nascar auto races around the country to recruit soldiers. Visitors to the Army exhibit can spray bullets during the virtual patrol, scale a 25-foot rock-climbing wall, bounce in a Humvee simulator, have their names stamped on dog tags and talk to recruiters, reported the Boston Globe Sunday. By the time Nascar's 36-race Nextel Cup series ends this year, the Army expects to gather about 40,000 names of potential recruits who will be contacted at least once by a recruiter. "In terms of sheer numbers, this is the exact kind of event we want to be at," said Staff Sgt. Harold Darner, an Army recruiter in Michigan. "They're race fans, and they're patriotic people. This is more bang for the buck."
America's finest... Good luck with that.
