Keep breeding the cannon fodder
A little-known provision of the "No Child Left Behind" law (sorry, I can't NOT quote that ridiculous misnomer) requires all public high schools to provide contact information on all their students to military recruiters unless the parents sign an opt-out form. This is the Columbia Record Club method - you must take a positive action to PREVENT something from happening, rather than causing it to happen.
Now this from Minneapolis:
Pressured to meet quotas, some U.S. military recruiters have bent or broken the rules for enticing young people into the service. And on the eve of a day of atonement of sorts, CBS News Correspondent Jim Acosta reports that a little-known provision in the federal No Child Left Behind law gives these recruiters a secret weapon when aiming to recruit high schoolers, and catch the attention of students as young as 14.Threatening a teen with jail if he didn't keep an appointment??
CBS News has reported that from asking teens to lie to their parents to guiding them through duping the drug-test system and forging documents, recruiters will go to many lengths to get young people to enlist. One Houston-area recruiter was caught on tape threatening jail time if a applicant didn't keep his appointment.
So in order to take a day to re-train Army recruiters in the ethics of enlisting, the entire Army recruitment system will stand down — or cease recruitment — Friday.
