City Letter of the Day
posted by October 23 at 11:43 AMon
HEY STRANGER: Thanks for your article of 21 October on “Ending the Occupation.” I just want to say that I am pissed off at military recruiters. They are quite possibly the most corrupted human beings on this planet, with the exception of Dino Rossi and John McBush. They lie to children (like they lied to me when I was 17), and how the city of Seattle can allow them free-roaming access to teen events on public property is beyond me. If the city allowed carnival workers to set up recruiting tables and harrass teens at their events, there would be a major shitstorm. (And carnival workers don’t even make you do pushups).
Seattle needs to wake up and see military recruiters for what they are: vultures selling our children into servitude. Take this Iraq veteran’s word for it: Once you let the army set up gimmicks and violent videogames in city parks, you are only a step away from getting calls in the middle of the night from your children while serving multiple tours in Iraq. Don’t believe me? Ask my mom.
