And Since We Have No Guns And Less Military
By now, you’ve probably heard about Bill O’Reilly’s reaction to the SF vote on military recruitment and his comments that terrorists should blow up Coit Tower because SF has rejected recruitment. Now, there’s a bunch of overreaction going on to his remarks. He’s a talk radio host – seriously, he wins the angrier you get. So unbunch those panties.
But what about the substantive question – the rejecting recruitment part?
Even if you disagree with this war – and I strongly do – and even if you’re a peacenik – I tend to be – what about defense? The world isn’t a stable place – never has been, never will be. Discouraging military service may seem like a great start to curbing the government’s enthusiasm, but maybe we should focus on running more people for office who agree with our views? What about encouraging military service by people who will have different ideas for handling conflict?
