a real star wars conversation...

So, I was in drama class and this guy (let’s just call him Ranch) was in my group for a project. We had to teach a bunch of 3rd graders how to express emotion in a simple and quick game. After teaching the 3rd graders, this is a conversation him and I had.

Ranch: Monday…November…20th.

Me: HOLY CRAP!

Editor’s Note: People have misinterpreted this post as a criticism of individual recruiters when it is meant to highlight the predatory nature of recruitment in general.

This is an Orwellian nightmare becoming reality. If terrorism is a threat to our freedoms, this FCC decision is the biggest terror attack of all time.

Class War Now!
