Amazing Findings from New College Study!

By an astounding 3-to-1 margin, female college students would be far more willing to enter the Armed Services to defend America than their male college counterparts.

This is just one of the amazing findings in a new national college campus poll, sponsored by

Other interesting findings:

- 73 percent of students say the Bush Administration is discussed frequently in class, while only 39 percent say the threat that radical Islam poses to the West is discussed (global warming is discussed 51 percent of the time);

- Only 24 percent of students say the genocide in Darfar is frequently discussed;

- 86 percent of students believe there will be another terrorist attack against the US, but only 27 percent (14 percent male), would be willing to serve in the Armed Forces;

- 79 percent of college students are proud to be American (83% of college women);

- The US Supreme Court is the most trusted institution (Men and Women), while the media is the least trusted institution (7 percent male; 15 percent female)

"...(14 percent male), would be willing to serve in the Armed Forces;"

I find that puzzling. After 9-11, the recruiters had a huge surge in volunteers. Perhaps we can conclude that college indoctrination ... er ... I mean education decreases a man's desire to serve. Perhaps the demographic most likely to end up on college is least likely to want to serve for one reason or another. Perhaps the mature young men who go to work or trade school or the military after high school are more willing to serve than the professional students who go on to college to delay entry into the real world.

On the other hand, maybe I'm completely wrong. I dunno.

Immediately after 911 there was a strong desire to find Osama Bin Laden in Afghanistan. After all he attacked us not Saddam Hussein. Military recruitment went up. It has slowed down after this senseless war in Iraq. The general feeling on campus and high school seniors is "why die in Iraq for nothing." You can feed them all kinds of patriotic garbage but they can see that Iraq was and is a hopeless cause.
