Stop recruiting people to be canon fodder!

Everyone knows I hate the current regime (and that I don't really expect to like the next one) -- but sometimes what I find out about really pisses me off.  Military recruiters across the nation are getting investigated for hiding kids mental illnesses in order to be able to recruit them as canon fodder. Like this autistic kid that was recruited to be calvary.

Obviously, the current regime is not going to allow us to stop them from recruiting canon fodder... So, we have to do what we can to stop them at the local level.

What can we do? Don't let them into your house for one.  The malls should uphold the "No Soliciting" rules. The schools should tell them they are not allowed on campus.  "Don't talk to strangers" should not exclude those in uniform.

Yeah, I heard about that! I can't believe they did that.  Recruiting someone who is autistic is completely un-ethical.  I know an army recruiter and I hope he'd never do that! (but you never know!).  This whole thing is just SICK.

support the troops, not the commander in chief
And did you know that if a school gets federal funding AT ALL, they are required to let recruiters on the campus?
so nice try, the colleges have to let them in if they receive any monies from the gov

Well, what can we do about that?  Do they have to allow them to go ANYWHERE on campus?
