    Simply a product of healthy eating, with vegetables such as ketchup, and a daily regimen of video games.

    Shouldn’t take to long in basic training to turn him around to a healthier way of life, Army Strong can do it…

    Even the Marines couldn’t fix that one. Recruiting duty is some of the most thankless, micromanaged, pressure jobs there are where nobody’s shooting at you.

    I was caught up in it for about 9 months before I managed to escape.

    Still, it’s a very necessary job. Just not for me.

    “Army Strong?” Looked it up. It’s the latest recruiting slogan.

    “Army of One” is so 2005.

    This boy needs to be put in one of those isolation boxes out in the middle of the compound, in the hot sun with nuthin but a straw that leads to all the water he can drink, ohhh.. for about a week or so; and then conditioning with a good nutritional diet designed to build a strong body 12 ways, instituted. That mountain of blubber will then be forged into a lean tower of power.

    There’s strong, and then there’s Army Strong. Not to be confused with Amy Strong, who’s a set decorator for Entourage and Bones.

    Come on, Sarg, look at him as a challenge. In 90 days, he’ll be a lean, mean fighting machine! If ever he lives that long. This reminds me of the movie, “Stripes”, and he’s a perfect John Candy.

    Yeah, but look at his score on controlling the Remotely Operated Vehicles.

    McDonald’s is a greater threat to America’s security than the terrorists.

    The Army has been using on-line video games as a recruiting tool for the last few years. Some of them have drawn criticism for being rather gratuitous shoot-em-ups just barely this side of something like “Halo”; bleeding-hearts worry that the Army will end up getting a lot of blood-thirsty killers as recruits. Now we see the real problem: when you recruit people using a video game, you get recruits who like to play video games… oops…

    Most people are failing the military physicals because people are just plain TOOOOO FFFAAAATTT!. At least I have a disability; the one person that day who failed the physical, everyone else was taken. Thought I could be a medic. NOPE, NO WAY, son.

    Apartheid Rules!!! Makes things so much easier. Us and Them. What could be simpler?

    GT’d probably do a pretty good job on Apartheid, but methinks he’s got more than enough material to work with focusing on the problems here in the good-ole-USA….. if only our gummint could focus that well…..
