Reservists See Recruiting Scam

CBS - 5-31-04

(CBS/AP) After nearly four years in the Army, including time in Iraq, Jason Pariza was honorably discharged and placed on inactive ready reserves.

He thought his active military obligation was done, until he received a notice saying all inactive ready reserve soldiers would be "involuntarily" transferred.

"I'm trying to get my life back in order, and all of a sudden I find they're trying to stick their nose back in my life," Pariza said...

Who runs the military enlistment program?  General Tony Soprano?

"They can't show the carrier footage with him in front of 'Mission Accomplished' -- it just looked stupid. Now I think they can't do 9/11. The only thing they're going to be able to do is ads of him clearing brush." --Al Franken on President Bush's television ads, during Franken's premiere broadcast on Air America Radio

Questions for Bush
Mother Jones, CA 6-1-04

...'He really liked showing it off,' says a recent visitor to the White House who has seen the gun. 'He was really proud of it.' The pistol's new place of residence is in the small study next to the Oval Office where Bush takes select visitors after pointing out better-known White House pieces like the busts


I understand from the media President Bush is in possession of the gun found with Saddam when he was captured.

My question is does President Bush know the gun is the property of the United States Government? It is to stay in Washington, DC possibly in the Smithsonian.

Anyone want to bet in a couple of years it will be "missing"?

I wonder what souvenirs Bush got from his days in the National Guard?  Champagne corks, little silver spoons?

Remind Us...why did we invade Iraq?

Rummy's West Point Commencement Message

WEST POINT, NY (IWR News Parody) - Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld told a crowd of graduating cadets Saturday that they will help win the global fight against terror by using effective homoerotic torture techniques as those employed at Abu Ghraib and Gitmo prison facilities.
The defense secretary urged the new officers to not entirely rely on the so-called "moral clarity" learned at West Point. He said they should instead embrace the "new neocon morality" that says "anything goes if you are an American", and that the military should not be constrained by such "silly international agreements as the Geneva Convention".

A powerful earthquake that shook Alaska in 2002 affected geysers and hot springs at Yellowstone National Park nearly 2,000 miles away in Wyoming, scientists reported on May 28, 2004. The magnitude 7.9 Denali fault earthquake in November 2002 was known to have triggered smaller quakes across much of the U.S. West, but its effect on geysers was previously unknown, a team at the University of Utah said.(USGS/HO)
