Parliamentary commissioner: German soldiers too fat, smoke too much

Berlin - German soldiers are overweight, smoke too much and do not engage in enough sports, according to a report published Tuesday by the parliamentary commissioner for the defence force. "Male and female soldiers are too fat, partake little in sports and pay too little attention to what they eat," Reinhold Robbe said in his official report to parliament. He called the situation "shocking."

In the 18-29 age-group, military personnel are in worse condition than their civilian counterparts, with 40 per cent of soldiers overweight against 35 per cent in the general population, according to Robbe.

Despite the widespread availability of sports equipment in the army, more than 20 per cent don't engage in any sports at all.

Robbe also noted that an alarming 70 per cent of military personnel were smokers.

Hillary Scares the Youth

"Vote for MEEEEEEEE"

I have to admit that I am taking great pleasure in watching the smug "we know what's best for you" Queen Hillary get completely routed by Mr. Obama. That's not to say he'll do a better job. I just like to see her and her handlers who were so sure, SO SURE get completely thrashed.

"How can this be?" they ask.

For the first time they are confronted with just being old. Not old like Grampa McCain. But OLD, in tired old the same old will you please shut up about the 1960s old. They represent that generation.

I don't know about anyone else but i was sick of their opinions on everything by the time I was 10. And that was in 1976.

A generation that define themselves by a war they never fought and a rock show they never attended. The youth of today with their fax machines and hoola hoops are just not down with it, man.

After 30 years of teachers, guidance consulars, and principals who all look, act and sound just like Hillary Clinton it amazes me that they have any youth vote at all. Mr. Obama on the other hand seems more like the gym teacher. The new one. The one who isn't a jerk to the nerds and can out run the jocks and is well spoken. Who wouldn't vote for him? Well not a Republican of course but I'm trying to look at this from a neutral point of view.
