Military says fat kids are a threat to national security
Tuesday, April 20th, 2010
A report released today from the military says obesity is a threat to our national security.
Of all Americans ages 17 - 24, there are 27% that are too fat to join the military.
Subtracting 27% for kids too fat to serve, that leaves 73%.
Subtracting 10% for kids "too gay" to serve, and that leaves 63%.
Subtract a few more for disabled kids, illiterate kids, peace activists, human rights activists, and conscientious objectors.
So the military is having problems recruiting enough new troops? No shit! It took a study to determine that???
Later this week I'll post a blog on the true threats to our country. You might be surprised of what is and isn't on my list.
