    Re: Calif. towns challenge feds on military recruiting

    Counter-recruiters across the country have sought to inform students of their perspective on military service in times of war.
    And if this was the ONLY thing the town did, I wouldn't have a problem with that. It is also free speech as well as allowing the recruiters there.

    Police Officers in some of the most dangerous neighborhoods are in more danger sometimes than soldiers, yet I don't see this town banning recruitment of those and other dangerous jobs.

    It's hypocritical (and IMO illegal) of this town to ban military recruiters.

    I doubt very much they are doing anything actually illegal. it's stupid, and the best thing to do to my mind is ignore them. Don't do anything which will get them any more attention than they already have. It seems to be what they desire, the attention.

    You might be right in that it is legal, that remains to be seen though as it is being contested. However, even if it is legal for them to do this, there may be consequences to their actions like loss of federal funding.

    No, cities have zero authority to re-write the First Amendment for their own selfish political brainwashing agenda.

    Since those towns are in the confines of the United States of America, they too get to enjoy the opportunity to have their young folk make sound career choice from the full range of options, from Greenie Compost Heap Stirrer to Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

    If individual parents do not want their little darlings joining the military, they need to control their little darlings themselves.

That you don't want people joining up because it's really cool to go and shot some bad guys in a foreign country like in a videogame. Instead you want grown up professional recruits that knows both the benefits and privileges as well as the challenges, risk and responsiblities with joining the military.
    By definition recruits are not professionals, they're trainees.

It is the same reason Berkly California tried to drive out the Marine recruiters and code pink was practically given a license by Berkly to annoy the **** out of the Marines by Berkly. Their reasons for wanting to reduce the numbers of military recruits is because they are against the military,former president Bush, the Iraq war, possibly the Afghanistan war and any other future wars as well.
    You forgot the obvious.

    Those people are opposed to the United States.
