Dirty's Letter to the Undecided

Before I begin, I just want to start off by saying that I have nothing but respect and admiration for those who serve and have served our great nation. Many of my closest friends are either Active Duty, Reserve, or Retired Military, and we truly do owe them everything, because they put everything on the line for our freedom. While I don't always agree with the people who say there SHOULD be a war, any argument that these men and women who go off to fight it have crossed the line from bravery to stupidity is complete BULLSHIT, and you need to take your hippie-ass the fuck on somewhere. With all of that being said, I'm sure that most of us can agree that the military is NOT for everyone, myself included. Recently, I did an assignment for a Critical Reading course I'm taking for my Associate's Degree where I had to write a persuasive letter to a potential armed forces recruit, persuading them to join (or not join) the military. Upon completing it, I felt like I should post it here for you all to read it and have your take on my opinion. I feel like I've compiled three good reasons to weed out those who want to join the army simply because it's the popular thing to do, so read it for yourself and leave your thoughts and opinions below, or on our Facebook page:

Rantastic: November 18, 2014

At last, the inaugural Rantastic article is upon us. I feel like this new category of compliation-type posts will really become a big part of the blog, so we'll see how it goes. I've had a lot on my mind lately, with the holidays fast approaching and such. The holiday season comes with its share of ups and downs, or just downs if you're not into that sort of thing. You won't find Dirty prancing around in a sweater eating gingerbread cookies any time soon, but I do tend to get into the "holiday spirit" if you will, at least as much as a disgruntled auto mechanic can possibly get into it. One thing you're always sure to be angry at with the coming of the holiday season is the horrendous traffic that comes with it. If that isn't enough to get your blood boiling, a terrible Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner will damn sure make matters worse. And if nothing else, Christmas shoppers will definitely push you way over the edge. Lemme preach on it:

Chuck.0 Presents: "Rantastic"

So, basically I'm stuck at an "in between" point, where what I have to say is entirely too long for a Facebook post, yet not long enough for a full-length article. To make matters even more complicated, I find myself juggling too many topics at once, and I'm equally eager to write an article about each one, but I simply don't have the time. I differ from my uncle in that while we both would rather go a long time without posting rather than posting something that is not of good quality just to keep our respective sites updated, I am constantly looking for a way to avoid BOTH, and I believe I may have found it: I give the Chuck.0 audience, Rantastic.
