The clueless Central Michigan College Republicans
Instead of sending their own asses into combat they'll send a banner with signatures.
College Republicans held the second “Salute to the Troops” event Wednesday in Central Park, next to the Charles V. Park Library. A banner was supplied for students to sign and send to the Michigan Army National Guard’s 125th Infantry Division’s Company C of Wyoming, stationed in Afghanistan.
As usual they toss out the "well I know lots of people in uniform" line as though that somehow insulates them from considering to serve.
“I know lots of people in the military — I’ve got family in the military and friends right here at CMU who are about to serve in Iraq or Afghanistan,” said Travis Faber, Battle Creek senior and member of the College Republicans.And here's another one that has a friend of a friend that served.
Kevin Cotter, Republican candidate for State Representative of the 99th District, attended and said he knows someone nrecently out of the military. He said he thinks it will mean a lot to the troops.
“I think it also is good to bring awareness to the students here on campus as they see this and sign — it brings it to the forefront of their mind the sacrifices that others are making to protect our freedoms,” Cotter said.
At least they were able to raise some loot for the troops. A full $23.91. Barely enough to get a College Republican drunk on $4 pitcher of beer night.
“It takes half a second to sign your name to something that will hopefully bring a lot of joy to somebody that’s over in a country really far away from here,” Faber said.
The total amount of donations made was $23.91 and about 517 signed the banner.
