    Because that policy was bull**** . All men are created equal, whatever happened to that when they signed that addendum into law?
    I'm coming to see that no matter what law we regulate, be it the stand your ground act, there is never an objective morally right answer to any morale question; in fact, since there are multiple objectively right answers to every moral question that leaves us with a lot of grey area and a lot of black area (not in the racial since).

    All men are created equal, indeed. The policy was self serving for the USG. The USG needed college educated people, so sending them off to war was counter productive. That's not their fault, blame the govt for serving it's own ends.

    edit: Another example is my Grandfather. He was actually denied enlistment in WWII because he was a ship yard worker and the USG needed him more there than in the war.


    oh, and by the way....the administrations leading up to and during the majority of Vietnam were Democrat.

    This much I am pretty sure of, Romney is NOT government as usual, he will do a much better job of selecting staff than has been done in a long time. Also, he isn't beholden to the GOP power structure, which would just as soon have a more pliable person in the WH. and he is perfectlly willing to fire non-productive employees.

    Of course, the college educated crooks are usually better at such things than the high school level crooks...

    The only thing better than prison for teaching people how to be crooks is college!

    You keep posting things I want to hear.

    I hope he chooses folks with experience. I'm tired of professors who've taught economics but never had a job outside a college/university.

    use them as plugs?

    I am pretty sure that wall street is full of crooks, and am very disappointed that Obama didn't prosecute more of them.
    congress has a few as well, but Obama did push thru a bill about trading on inside information by members of congress...
