Nationwide Military Recruiting Opportunity: College Republicans' Jan. 30 "Finish the Job! Support Our Troops!" Rally, Washington DC & All Over America

Attention Military Recruiters!

On January 30, the College Republicans will sponsor "Finish the Job! Support Our Troops" Rallies in Washington, DC and All Over America, in support of President Bush's January 31 State of the Union Address. Certainly this patriotic crowd of healthy heterosexuals well under 40 is both qualified and motivated to volunteer for military service. You'll make your higher recruiting quotas in no time.

Best of all, you will have the full support of all Americans. The College Republicans will fully support your access to their rally, and anti-war leftists will fully support your work there. President Bush will be able to prove that he truly is a uniter, not a divider, of our great country.

The Washington DC rally will take place Monday, January 30, 1830 hours (6:30 p.m.), at American Legion Post No. 8, 224 D St., SE. Metro Capitol South. Be there!

so, you're going to go protest veterans who support the war and tell them to enlist?

At 22 January, 2006 06:14, Blogger Karl said...

Quite the contrary.

Operation Yellow Elephant appreciates and respects the service of those who have served.

But the vast majority of College Republicans are not veterans; it is to them that our message Be A Man! Enlist! is directed.

then why are you protesting at the american legion? because some civilian supporters of the war will be there?

come to think of it, is the idea that demanding that civilan war-supporters sign up expresses solidarity with the troops?

The College Republicans have chosen to hold their "Finish the Job! Support the Troops!" rally at the American Legion on Capitol Hill. They picked the location. We didn't.

And, yes, you are absolutely right that demanding that civilian supporters of the war [if eligible] sign up themselves to express solidarity with the troops.

We're all born civilians but many of us can choose to change that.

With stop-loss and extended reserve and National Guard mobilizations, our military is being stretched too far. Our Army just missed its annual recruiting quota by the largest shortfall since 1979. In October and November 2005, the Army accepted an alarmingly high percentage of Category IV recruits.

For those who support the war and are eligible to serve, no further invitation should be needed.

If they really want to Support The Troops, they'll sign up themselves to give our troops a break from multiple deployments to Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere.

And if they have "other priorities," well, then maybe our country does, also.

Think about it.

what i meant to ask is whether the people asking young republicans to sign up see their message as an expression of solidarity with the troops?

At 22 January, 2006 16:18, Blogger Karl said...


You'll have to ask them that question yourself. And also ask the troops whether they would like to see the current and future leaders of our governing party doing their part right now.

A lot of real Americans are very concerned that those in power structure and goverment of our country are not personally at risk, nor are their family, friends or major campaign contributors. [Some Senators and Members of Congress do have sons and daughters in Iraq, but very few.]

Jenna's beau Henry Hager hasn't enlisted. Why not?

No one can control exactly who shows up at a public event. There's bound to be a few people with an axe to grind, but that's freedom.

If you really want to Support The Troops, you'll ensure that they have the body armor, vehicle armor and anything else they need to accomplish the mission. Rallies aren't enough by themselves.

'Hope this answers your question. If not, please feel free to ask some more.

Thank you for your interest.

i'm sorry, i know i'm sounding like a pest, but i don't think i got a clear answer from that.

i thought i was asking "them" by posting my question here, on a website dedicated to asking war supporters to sign up.

what about you? you seem to know what you're talking about.

I can't go to dc but I will do my part in this war by posting mean comments on there blogs

The way to support the troops is to put pressure on congress to stop cutting funds from VA hospitals, or to give financial assistance to returning vetrans who are ending up in homeless shelters, or who loose their house because they couldn't pay their mortgage.
That is the way to support the troops.
Holding a sign, waving a flag and wearing a 'I support the troops' button doesn't help soneone who lost their leg pay their mortgage.

To the idiot young college republicans, I dare you to make me eat my words. If you can, then good. Your 'Real' contributions will actually help someone who needs it.

One more note, I am an Army veteran, not that it matters.

'Sorry for the delay.

Lots of real Americans are quite concerned about the troops, and don't think that a yellow ribbon is enough.

Whether the College Republicans who are eligible to serve and support the war will actually think about it is another matter. We hope they will.

Unfortunately, I'm too old to serve but otherwise qualified: good (not perfect) health, good shape, etc. At the rate they are raising the maximum age, I'll probably be in uniform in a year.

Send me an e-mail to discuss further.

Is there a list of what colleges will be olding rallies? I'd love to show up at a local school and hand out my OYE recruitment flyer, complete with map to a local recruiting station!

At 24 January, 2006 10:39, Blogger Karl said...


Other than the Washington DC rally, we haven't found one.

Why don't you contact the State Chapter of the College Republicans and ask them?

Message sent to the Colorado chairman in Denver. I'll let you know if I get a response.

It must be nice to sit here and exercise your liberties without fear of physical reprisal (thanks should be given to those that gave it to us.) It is a great thing to be an American. The problem is, when will the rest of the world, especially those in areas that can also have an effect on world peace and prosperity be able to enjoy these liberties too. Peace has to be won by all not a few.

At 26 January, 2006 16:03, Blogger Karl said...


We agree!

Operation Yellow Elephant supports our military servicemembers.

And when you write that peace has to be won by all, not a few, we couldn't agree more.

And since the American people, in the last few elections, have chosen our governing party to lead our country, giving it control of both Houses of Congress as well as the White House, with President Bush yet to veto a single bill, it's very clear that, to win the peace, we'll start with the future leaders of our governing party who have a national leadership responsibility to set a good example for the rest of us.

First the College and Young Republicans, and then everyone else.

Why shouldn't they be the first?

Let's be fair. For every young republican that signs up, let's have a protester to the war sign up after him, thus giving you the match. But don't be upset when you have to face the "WE WENT FIRST" slogans all over the country. I think the majority of you who protest the war do not have the ability to do something productive with your lives. You live on an emotional thread that jumps at the slightest breeze. Please, ground yourselves a little and understand unless you are an artist playtime is over.

At 27 January, 2006 09:52, Blogger Karl said...


You are on. I feel quite confident taking such a bet, because I am calling ├┐our bluff.

Operation Yellow Elephant challenges the future leaders of our governing party, the College and Young Republicans, to be the first to fight. Pussies and Wussies, almost all of them.

Any takers? How about Daily Kos' fighting Dems?
