Why WE don't fight

Satirist Jesus' General chronicles his communications as a member of the Protest Warriors, a group of radical right hawks who protest antiwar protests. Upon receiving an email from his leader, begging the General and others to get it together and battle liberal dissenters, the General sends this telling response to all 51 members of the group: "JJ...We've all heard about how the military is not meeting its recruitment goals. We're facing a manpower crisis. When I look at our membership, I see a lot of able-bodied men and women of military age. I say we hold a rally at the recruiting station. Then, after a few speeches, we all go in and sign up." The group did not respond well to this suggestion. Read it all. (Jesus' General)
