Hayes must be feelin' the heat

Robin Hayes was out and about yesterday, doing things any good Congresscritter should do, like sucking up to the media and uninformed voters. Keep reading if you haven't eaten . . . it'll make you ill.

The most recent numbers available indicate there are more than 450,000 young people in ROTC, but officials say funding issues might prevent expansion.

“We're pushing for additional funding,” Hayes said. “It's a tremendous asset for the school and the military. Everybody wins when you have an ROTC unit.” Hayes says since the military works on a voluntary basis, the early exposure to students is most important. While there is no way to connect the war with an increase in ROTC interest, Hayes says during war time more people realize the value of a strong military and tend to invest more in programs like the Junior ROTC.

This from another chickenhawk Republican who uses military men and women for photo ops and cannon fodder. What a f*cking hypocrite.

A native of North Carolina, Robin was born on August 14, 1945 in his hometown of Concord. He earned a degree in History from Duke University in 1967. Upon graduation, Robin began a career in business that has ranged from textiles to trucking.

Let's see. In 1968, I was entering Annapolis for the first of nine years in the military. While Robin Hayes was laying tracks to become a flip-flopping Congressman who says constituents need him more than he needs them. I don't have anything against Congress people who never served in the military . . . except when they're gung-ho supporters of illegal wars of choice that kill our people for a pack of lies. Those assholes -- guys like Hayes -- need to be knee-deep in the Iraq desert worrying about IEDs.

1967....

So, if he graduated in 67, shouldn't he have been up for the draft? Do we have another dodger in Robin?

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

It's a dangerous path to walk anyways

Unless you have something like Dick Cheney and his half-dozen deferments, what does it really tell you? Democrats were the ones who didn't want to go, who wanted the war to end - yet they are the only ones who served. Go figure that out for a minute. People like Bush and Cheney were pro-war, but hid from it.

Just like today's chickenhawks.

Craziness.
