Military Recruiting Lead: Marquette University, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Attention Military Recruiters:

It's really great that the College Republicans (CRs) at Marquette University recognize "the need to honor the 'commitments' the United States has made to other nations, such as its involvement in fashioning a democratic Iraq." Money quote:

"It's been absolutely consistent this whole time. [President Bush has] been consistent in stazing the course. Time shouldn't be the measure by which you gauge success. The end result should be," Marquette CRs secretary Robert Fafinski said. "Bush sees us [who, exactly?] as a beacon of hope in the world, spreading democracy. If we stay to ourselves and hoard the things we have, that's selfish."

Well, Mr. Fafinski, the article doesn't mention that you're a veteran, and if you were, it would have. What plans, if any, do you have to "spread democracy" and not to be selfish. Are you planning to enlist? Motivated, healthy heterosexuals under 40 such as yourself are clearly needed.

Or is President Bush's State of the Union Address just a lot of hot air?

UPDATE: Please read the first comment for Mr. Fafinski's response with his plans for military service. Assuming its accuracy, we commend his desire to serve our country. How about the rest of the Marquette CRs?

My name is RObert Fafinski. I just got an e-mail from you... The irony of your e-mail is funny because on Friday I got a call from my Marine Corps recruiter who told me I just got selected for Officer Candidates School. I will begin the school this summer. I hope your apology e-mail is on the way. I will e-mail you in the next couple of days to verify the authenticity!! Thanks!!!

Hey hippy,

Why don't you try to get some facts before making an ass of yourself? You really do have a yellow stripe down your back, don't you? Unfortunately, it's easier for people like you to bitch and complain than actually try to solve the world's problems.

But I guess that's why Republicans control the federal government.

Did you guys happen to watch "Imus in the Morning" a few days ago? They had CBS' Mike Wallace on the show. He just couldn't understand why the wounded veterans overwhelmingly support Bush.

Some folks just don't get it. They can't understand why anyone would vote for Bush a second time!?!?!?

Best of luck to you, Fafinski. You have earned our respect.

But cabe, honestly. The Republican-owned media tells you the troops support the Republican president, and you believe them. Why should this be of interest to us?

The Republican-owned media? You mean like Dan Rather?

Robert Fafinski-

Thank you for sharing with us your plans to serve our country in the Marine Corps via their officer program.

It would be really great if more of the College Republicans were as dedicated to fulfilling their national leadership responsibilities as you are.

Thank you also for clarifying the situation.

Since when did Dan Rather OWN the media? Talk about knee-jerk regurgitation of Rush "Oxycontin" Limbaugh's lies!!!

Someone needs to do a little homework and look up who OWNS CBS where Rather used to work and then try to talk next time without exposing their ignoarance.

Cabe,

Two words--"fighting dems"
aka "Band of Brothers"
http://www.bandofbrothers2006.org/candidates/

52 Iraqi vets running for Congress as Democrats.

How many "Fighting Republicans?"
1 at last count.

Do the math.

I've met a lot of veterans at my school. They're 100% pro Bush.

Cabe-

Have they inspired you at least to consider serving?

That is, under a winning flag?

Mr. Fafinski, joining the military doesn't make the Bush Administrations lies about the war right. All it means is that you joined the military.
Bush lied, people died.
While in the military, try to observe the truth while being force fed lies, OK?
I was in the military many moons ago, so don't try to pull a superiority crap attitude on me.

So, Fafinski is picked up for OCS? Speaking as a disabled vet, sounds to me like your full of crap! Why is it going to take a few days for you to come up with "authenticity?" I'm pretty sure if you know you'll be starting OCS in the summer, then you should already know when you'll be attending Basic Training. And don't try to tell me you won't need basic training. The only way you could avoid that is if you were in ROTC in college. And if you were in ROTC then you wouldn't need to go to OCS. But, I guess you're innocent until proven guilty. I realize that may be a new "idea" for a repub fanatic to digest. But, give a chance...maybe you'll enjoy it?!

I'm curious to know, "How many of your friends are you going to convince to join you in your service?" Bear in mind that you can make $1,000 for everyone you refer to the ARMY who actually enlists. Go get em' tiger!

The war is a joke, everyone knows it, and its not just lefties, because I am definitely not one of those. I refer everyone to the following Conservative/Libertarian site of people who question the validity of this war: Americans Against Bombing

In the Marine Corps, there is no such thing as basic. It is called boot camp. And you are incorrect, no one going to OCS needs to go to boot in the Marine Corps. Enlistedmen and women go to boot while people seeking a commission go to OCS. The program RF is in is called Platoon Leaders Class. He go to it for six weeks for two consecutive summer. Then, upon graduation he would be a second lieutenant. I just did a internet search (on google)for "marine corps plc." Looks pretty sele explanatory. Do research before y'all attack someone.

I was talking about this Republican-owned media:

"The six current media conglomerates are Disney, Viacom, Time Warner, News Corp, Bertelsmann, and General Electric. These companies together own more than 90% of the media market."

from wikipedia

And cabe, I know a lot of veterans who hate Bush with a passion. My own father included. Just goes to show the plural of anecdote is not data. Or maybe the moral is, even polecats like each other?

Hey Fafinski... If you are actually signing up, I wish you the best of luck. Of course, by the end of 'summer' we'll know if you're a liar or not. There are 8 OCS classes scheduled to begin from Jun thru August. You better be in one of those. Semper Fi.

Cabe,
I'm a veteran who can't stand Bush. My dad was a veteran who couldn't stand Bush 41. My uncle, WWII veteran can't stand either Bush president.
My sister is a veteran who can't stand Bush. My landlord is a WWII veteran who can't stand Bush.
How many veterans have you talked to? Realistically?

I am going to OCS in a program called PLC. It splits OCS up into the next two summers. Six weeks each summer. If I am able to finish it and become a Marine, I will be commisssioned on the date of my graduation from Marquette University.

I was curious if we could look forward to seeing an article in the paper you write for about your enlistment and outstanding patriotism.

As a soldier in the US Army, currently serving a second tour in Iraq, I feel that it would be of great service not only for you to join, but to also promote patriotic service by showing your patriotic zeal in the college newspaper.

Well that's ONE enlisted.

But Rob F. is probably a decent guy to begin with.

I want the obnoxious, mouthy, insulting pro-war twerps to get their butts over to Iraq.

You know the ones I'm talking about...the ones that will tell you to get out of the country because you are against the war in Iraq.

Last guy that said that to me still thought Sadaam had WMD's and was involved in the 9/11 attacks.

I told him I didn't have to go anywhere because my facts don't jibe with his fantasy, lol.

We're both mid-fourties so I didn't have the satisfaction of recommending he get his butt over to Iraq to "Support the Troops".

Imagine the arrogance that has been cultivated on the right-wing...people that disagree with them SHOULD LEAVE THE COUNTRY. How arrogant!
