US Army Ramps Up Enlistment Bribes -Again

For at least the third time in eight months, the U.S. Army again has raised enlistment bonuses to all-time highs in an attempt to reverse a national recruitment shortage.

The Army currently is offering a $14,000 bonus for combat arms jobs (like infantry). This particular bonus was raised from $7,000 to $9,000 in August, then to $10,000 earlier this year before being raised to $14,000 late last week.

The Army also increased a bonus for three-year active duty recruits to $20,000. The bonus was more than doubled to $15,000 in August and then raised to $17,000 in February.

As financial incentives continue to climb, recruitment numbers continue to sag both locally and nationally.

Gee, maybe if they added some Halliburton stock options along with the cash, they might get more cannon-fodder to prop up The Empire with.

Maybe the Bush family could kick-in a smidge of the BILLION$ they've been pulling in from this war thru the Carlyle corporation.

Conflicts-of-interest are a good thing now, remember?

GOP values at work in Lucifer's...er, um
God's own USA.

Dontcha' just love it?!
