Size 12 too fat?

This came across my desk today:

Size 12 too fat?

Take a look at the two models and tell me which is more attractive. Odds are you said the top one. That's the one that was considered "too fat" to be a model. Ask me and I think she could use a little more on top, but her legs are great. That's not the point though.

The point is the second model that wasn't "too fat" and won whatever competition it was looks sick. I mean sick in a bad way. Shave her, black and white photo her, put some chain link fencing around her and you have something the world saw in the 40's towards the end of WWII. Not attractive at all. Tragic.

And the world wonders why women have "weight" issues.

What ever happened to Marlyin Monroe?

Solving the military recruitment and draft.

Okay so stupid Charlie Rangle wants to attempt to implement the draft again because he has the incorrect assumption that military volunteers only join up because they don't have a good education...or some crap like that. Rangle tried to do this once before and was trounced when it went for a vote. Rangle even voted against his own bill. Hey Rangle got a question for you. Why in the monkey are you wasting time putting in bills that you won't even vote for. Idiot.

Anyways so recruitment is supposedly down and Rangle thinks that people join because they don't have opportunities elseware and want the paid college and bonus.

Here is the fix, nice and easy. Join the military for a full term of service (4 years). With an honorable discharge the recruit pays no income taxes...EVER...no matter how much money they make in the future.

First this fixes the "problem" of only less fortunate people joining the military (which is a load of bull in the first place) because they will have more money in their pockets for the rest of their lives.

Second so many people will be lining up to join that the military will have to turn people away.

Third, the standards of recruitment will have to go up because of so many people wanting to join.

Personally I think it's a no-brainer but we are talking about removing several million people from the tax system and there is no way in hell donkeys or elephants are gonna go for that one.

It is a thought though.
