    I just can't get upset about a bucket of fucking paint.


    Oh, whatever will we tell the children! Give me a break. In general I prefer nonviolence--but I think red paint is fair game.

    I believe in supporting our service personnel, and I'm sorry the recruiters are placed in the position of lying. But as long as we're on this big "personal responsibility" kick with vandalism and all, let's call it for what it is. These recruiters are lying with impunity. I know there is tremendous pressure being applied, but they are still morally responsible (and reprehensible).

    I am 100% against all the things being done to our active-duty personnel and especially our veterans by this band of crooks. But unfortunately they volunteered and a majority of them voted republican. Our military today skews conservative AND southern. Let's not forget that the only two states with dedicated state military academies are Virginia (VMI) and South Carolina (Citadel).

    I think what the students did was measured and appropriate and I hope more people do the same. Go right up to the line of what is acceptable and maybe push the envelope a little. If recruiters get hassled a little like Santa Cruz and some other campuses, fine. No physical threats or intimidation, but get in their faces.

    We need to take our country back through every legal means, and that means getting uppity and acting up sometimes.  Personally I think it's long past time.
