ROFL - Just saw Army recruiting ad on tv....
They were of course playing up what they had to offer a recruit:

Skills, an education, healthcare...

HEALTHCARE!

Can you believe that motherfucking shit!?!

I don't even know where to start, but the following might be good:

republicans refuse to get healthcare for the bulk of Americans.

Your chances of coming to grievous harm are oodles greater in today's military than almost anywhere else in American life.

The military has been charging it's own wounded-in-action for healthcare.

Veteran's have to go to hell and back (again!) to get the VA to help them.

Can you believe this motherfucking shit?

1. The Economic Draft
If people get desperate enough for employment, for healthcare, for a chance at a college education, or for other perks that might once have been available in a healthy economy, then they'll need to enlist in the military or move to Bangalore.

A draft, by any other name, would smell as rancid.

2. Go get killed so your children can go to the doctor.
