Retired Military Leaders: American Kids Are So Fat And Stupid it’s a National Security Threat
If you’re looking for another reason to believe there’s no hope for the future, have no fear, America’s retired military leaders have your back. Specifically, they’re warning that our kids are so fat and stupid they aren’t qualified to fight and defend our nation. Isn’t that charming?
The Army says more than three-fourths of 17- to 24-year-olds today are not eligible to join the military because they aren’t fit enough or don’t meet other basic requirements, such as having a high school diploma or being able to read or write properly.
That’s got some of the nation’s highest-ranking retired military officials advocating a radical way to improve national security—improve the lives of children.
“It’s not just a school problem. It’s not just a Department (of Education) problem. It’s a national security issue and it needs to be prioritized that way,” said retired Maj. Gen. D. Allen Youngman.
Hopefully our next war will be against an equally obese and stupid foe, and there won’t be any problems. Hopefully.
