US Military Out-Sources Recruiting

Yep. Program is called GRAP (Guard Recruiting Assistance Program). Run by a company named Docupak (short for Document and Packaging Brokers, Inc). They call themselves, nothwithstanding the odd name, a marketing company. Their corpoRat HQ is (wait for it) ALABASTER, Alabama...

Contract awarded in 2002 - operates in all 50 states.

"Recruiters" collect $2k for every recruit who shows up at basic training.

Hey - I left a comment down in the Bob Marley thread.

Wouldn't it be so so nice if Rasta suddenly rose up and swept the other religions off the map and into little corners? Things might get rusty, machinery rundown, but the murder rate would fall to nuttin and we'd sure be a bunch of happy lazy people.

;)

loves ya, woody.

Of course if only the Yellow Elephants would meet their recruiting goals that would set the tone. They could shame everyone in America into being a solider.

tena, dahlin:
do we hafta worship ja the most high?

cant we all just get together and spark some good ganja widdout all the attendant rastaffarian/biblical gobbledegook?
please?

Well this is my fantasy - I did a bad job of describing it. In order for Rasta to sweep the globe, it will have to dump the Haille Selasie crap. But can we just kind of keep Ja and we can consider it as the idea of fellowship we get when we all get stoned together? I don't want to alienate our founders, Bob Marley and the rest.

A small compromise. How's that?

I was kind of thinking about the way the Unitarians drop the Jesus crap.

But hey, we can just forge a whole new one or forget the whole thing. I was hoping to convert a significant number of humans as a method of stopping the bullshit.

It is, as they say, a pipe dream. 8)

GRAP appears to be CRAP. Every time I think they've found every way to be scum they find another.
