You are way off target, please refer to the original post I made. In response to yours I will have to break it up.
So military recruiters are on campus because they offer higher educational opportunities. Really? Yes, actually that is the only reason recruiters are allowed on campus. A Supreme Court ruling (on 03/06/06) Very clearly stated that the military does serve a higher education purpose, and any campus that allows scholarship programs, and college/university recruiters on campus had to make it accessable to military for the same reasons.
What baloney. Is that why you think they are there? Well it appears I KNOW why they are there. and now you do too.
Metaphors are powerful tools. I can use them as I like. It is unfortunate you don't like the concepts behind them. Feel free, your metaphors seem based more on emotion or what you would like to belive than what is true. Which brings me to my metaphor -Comparing a Play many consider in bad taste, to the educational opportunities granted by the military is like comparing apples and volkswagens.
I'm elite. Really? Why is that? Well I did make an assumption, which I based off of your brilliant metaphor, my apology. I can't see how something as important as college could seem as trivial as popcorn. I have never driven to Les Schawb only for popcorn, No one I know would choose not to go to Les Schwab if they didn't have popcorn, Lot's of people wouldn't join the military without the education.
If I am elite as you alleged, then you should support it, isn't that what the higher education of the military espouses to do? Maybe you aren't elite, military education is intended to make a professional relevant force, today we are in a battlefield surrounded by civilians with the enemy mixed in, and having educated leaders and Soldiers will go great lenghts in preventing collateral damage.
