What can you say about a millionaire movie star spouting idiotic assertions other then "what a dumbass".  Here he is on Hardball getting chummy with his partner in idiocy, Chrissy Matthews:


I don’t think that it’s fair as I said before, that it seems like we have a fighting class in our country. That’s comprised of people who have to go for either financial reasons or , I don;t think that that is fair. And if you’re gonna send people to war, ahh, if, if we all get together and decide we need to go to war then that needs to be shared by everybody. You know and if the President has daughters who are of age then maybe they should go too…

For the thousandth time, our young men and women are NOT joining because they need the money:

For example, it is commonly claimed that the military relies on recruits from poorer neighborhoods because the wealthy will not risk death in war. This claim has been advanced without any rigorous evidence. Our review of Pen­tagon enlistee data shows that the only group that is lowering its participation in the military is the poor. The percentage of recruits from the poorest American neighborhoods (with one-fifth of the U.S. population) declined from 18 percent in 1999 to 14.6 percent in 2003, 14.1 percent in 2004, and 13.7 percent in 2005.

[…]In summary, the additional years of recruit data (2004–2005) sup­port the previous finding that U.S. military recruits are more similar than dissimilar to the American youth population. The slight differences are that wartime U.S. military enlistees are better educated, wealthier, and more rural on aver­age than their civilian peers.

Recruits have a higher percent­age of high school graduates and representation from Southern and rural areas. No evidence indicates exploitation of racial minorities (either by race or by race-weighted ZIP code areas). Finally, the distribution of household income of recruits is noticeably higher than that of the entire youth population.

Take a look at this sentence:

And if you’re gonna send people to war, ahh, if, if we all get together and decide we need to go to war then that needs to be shared by everybody.

My question would be then why the hell don’t you sign up you nimrod?  I mean come on, his plan is that every able bodied person will now be forced to join the military against their will.  And this makes sense how?  Especially seeing that our military has some of the best and the brightest joining and reenlisting at a record rate.  They do it because they love this country, something Matt Damon and the rest of the lefty’s can not understand.  Of course I would bet money that Matt Damon didn’t sing this song when we went into Kosovo did he?  Nope, because his liberal god Bill Clinton sent the troops.

Be that it may would someone please inform Mr. Damon that he lives in a Democracy and no one is forced to join our military, that goes for the Bush twins also.
