by MoveOn where a woman holding a new baby tells John McCain that he can't "have" her child for his 100 years in Iraq.
You know what, John McCain? We don't have a baby yet, but when we do, you can definitely have him or her. That is, if our child wants to join the military; you and I don't get much say in coercing the kid, neither to get in or stay out. But I have no problem with it. And I'm pretty sure you can have Erin's Tucker too. He's already got the camo thing nailed.
So the selfish blond lady can keep her baby at home. We've got at least two others you can "have."
What a dumb ad.
You can have mine, too. And me. And my husband (who was Army) and my bro-in-law who's active duty already. So we're at 8 for my immediate. OH, yeah, and my S-I-L kids who are in JROTC, so there's 10.
Shove that baby up your ass. LOL

Dumb, dumb, dumb ad.
My favorite comment over at the link you had is:
"Don't be misled by the name, lady: the 3rd Infantry Division is not made up of infants."

And don't forget my son, who thinks your husband is wonderful because he drove a tank, and two of my three daughters (one of whom I'd happily send now, as she is 16 and needs a reality check and a good drill sergeant).
The other daughter wants to be a nun, but she altar served for two years in a military chapel - does that count?
Shoot, I think Ike the Dog would even volunteer if he could, just because it makes him uneasy when AFG leaves and he would probably feel much better if he could "protect" the man.
And by the way, John McCain is already 2046 years old. I doubt he'll still be spry enough to break into Baby Alex's bedroom in 18 years and snatch him away in the dead of night - much less 100 years from now. And if a top of his form Baby Alex can't defend himself from a physically disabled Methusalite who can't lift his arms above his shoulders, this mom has other issues to worry about.

What an dumb ad? Granted, I don't want to lose any of my family members to some idiot in Iraq while they are stationed there, but I am extrememly proud to come from a military family and to have my oldest child volunteer for it.
He didn't do it for the college money or because he had to, he did it because he is a proud American. He loves what he does and wants to make a career of it and I support him 150%.
Screw the chick with her baby, its people like her that would lay down and allow America to be trampled on. Would she prefer the ad be in Spanish, German or Arabic?

"Screw the chick with her baby..."
Ah Vonn, I think she already has been.
I'm just saying.
Agree with y'all & can't say it any better.

I hate dumb advertisements. You could take mine as well! (If I had one to give)

What this lady doesn't understand is...there are people in this world who would love nothing more than to take that baby now. Just ask the parents in Beslan or Darfur or anywhere else that extremism is allowed to go unchecked. Moron.

I was going to post that ad from You Tube because it annoyed me so much! I saw a story on "Baby Alex" on Fox and just wanted to throw up...FYI to Baby Alex's mother: We have a VOLUNTEER military so that your kid won't have to fight. Bleck!

Dear crazy ad lady,
If your son is irrational and crazy like you, we probably don't want him.

Yeah, I saw the crazy lady ad, I was pretty much sickened over the thing.... I mean I have a teen who is fastly approaching 18 and her dad is in Tradoc now and bottom line, she knows what her options are, she is considering it, and well....while it scares me as a mother, I will support her regardless and if my other two decide to take that route, I will support them as well.....
Crazy lady can keep her baby....

fortunately, the mother doesn't have much of a say in what her kid decides to do at 18... unless of course he is a mindless, p-whipped little thug who has no sense of honor, commitment, duty, pride and self-sacrifice... in that case, he can just stay home with mommy. uck.
ps. the thing that really pisses me off about that ad? it implies that somehow mothers of those in [military] service to their country don't love their children as much as the bimbo blond in the ad. I said bimbo. and I meant it.

I saw that ad. First thing I thought was, "Actually it's not really your choice, lady. It's his choice, when he turns 18."
Crazy, selfish people.
