Pentagon Creating Student Database

The article says,

"The Defense Department began working yesterday with a private marketing firm to create a database of high school students ages 16 to 18 and all college students to help the military identify potential recruits in a time of dwindling enlistment in some branches..."

...The new database will include personal information including birth dates, Social Security numbers, e-mail addresses, grade-point averages, ethnicity and what subjects the students are studying...

...Some information on high school students already is given to military recruiters in a separate program under provisions of the 2002 No Child Left Behind Act..."

The article also explains how dangerous it is for the DoD to gather SS#'s because of the problem with identity theft. Privacy advocates are livid.

Well I certainly hope that the College Republicans are all contacted first. The people who should be recruited are those who support this cluster fuck that bush started. They shouldn't pick on our children who haven't even had a chance to grow up yet. How cruel and barbaric. Recruit people from 35-55 who voted for this evil war monger and his minions. Take 'em all. Take Ann Cutler and Michelle Mannequin, put Lush Bimbo on the front lines along with Insanity and O'Lielly. I'll go to Iraq before they can take my kid. But I won't go unless bush fights beside me.
