In this case, “most” is 90 percent. 90 PERCENT!!! Just when you think this town can’t go any lower . . .
A nonprofit group says that up to 90 percent of young Philadelphians are ineligible for military service because of criminal records, obesity or lack of education.
The report says 145,000 Philadelphians ages 18 to 24 cannot meet the military’s medical, moral and mental standards. Nationally, the Department of Defense estimates that 75 percent of young adults are disqualified from military service.
Whoo hoo! We beat the national average! Pardon my French, but this is a God-damned disgrace. This town is making its last swirl around the toilet bowl and no one cares. The “thug life” mentality has taken over, and the criminals, the stupid, and the criminally stupid are roaming the streets like a pack of wild dogs. For God’s sake, you only need a high school education or a GED to enlist, and most of these morons are not qualified? Are you frakkin’ kidding me?
Maybe we should round them up anyway, and use them for Operation Human Shield. Just sayin’. – Wyatt Earp
