Not looking too great hereSubmitted by ch4d on Wed, 01/28/2009 - 20:17
As a 20 year old from North Carolina, things are horrible looking at the moment. I work at a mall which last year was crowded but now half the stores/restaurants are closed. There is one addition to our mall though, located directly below my store and beside a childrens playground (1-8 year olds mostly). Here we now have an Army recruitment office, Navy and the Air Force. There windows filled with plasma tv's displaying propaganda and persuasive videos for everyone. Literally 5 feet from there offices is an indoor playground with children to view what their future could happily be. (/sarcasm). Also I noticed the navy had a large cardboard check made out to "You" with the amount of $180,000. I'm proud that in the past 2 years I've transformed my views that my family and the majority of America are brainwashed to go along with.
I find it funny that the more debt the government throws on us, the more money the military has to offer us to join their pointless wars. I constantly see people going in and out of the offices, mostly people my age who don't understand what's really going on. I don't blame them joining for the money as I work full time and work online and I can't even afford health care. Well, just thought I'd rant a little.
