How Young Republicans 'Support' Our Troops
This is directly from their website. [Seriously.] Note the Marine Corps colors.
March - May 2007: SUPPORT OUR TROOPS SPRING
YRs State Federations and local clubs will work together throughout the Spring to support our troops in every possible way. From “Welcome Home” rallies, to fundraising, to sending care packages, YRs are continuing this annual initiative. Here are a few sources of ideas for YR clubs planning events:
* America Supports You.
* Email Our Military. A quick way to send messages of support to our troops.
* Care packages can be easily sent from, among other places, Treats For Troops.
The YRNF encourages Young Republicans from across the nation to participate, whether it’s through direct participation [we assume this means in the above events], fundraising, holding rallies for our troops, or contacting your state or national leaders to sponsor bills eliminating taxes on military pay.
One unique feature of this year’s campaign is the effort to eliminate state and federal income taxes on military income. YRs are encouraged to work with their elected officials to sponsor bills in their home states and in Washington, D.C.
The campaign will wind down with a conference call later in the spring with a well-known keynote speaker. Please contact the YRNF’s Support Our Troops National Coordinator Wil Westholm with questions or for further details. We will.
OK, Florida YRs, why doesn't the Young Republicans National Federation "Support Our Troops" website even suggest the obvious: Contacting a military recruiter if you are healthy, heterosexual and 41 or under?
This is so pathetic it's comical but certainly not funny. It's even worse than Nathan Taylor's Chapstick two years ago.
