147. Yep you are right
:sarcasm:

it is between the I only care about myself and those who care for the whole of the country

Yep you are right

By the way... how exactly can two to six years of service followed by college education going to destroy your life?

I mean life expectancy today is 76 years old... for god sakes, serving until you are 22 and then going to college FOR FREE, if this proposal was passed, is gonig to kill your future prospects exactly how?

Or going to college for free at 18 and then owing two years per year of college teaching kids in the inner city is going to ruin your life exactly how again?

Oh yes, I forgot, it is all about me...
