You just wait - some lame pathetic-ass Democrat will explain why this is a good thing.

I doubt it - AP in the NYT. Not exactly trustworthy.

I am sure they are all eligible for the Obama Youth Corpse and Michelle’s special diet!

Isn’t Philly the place where the dems get 110% of the vote?

75% nationwide.

We could raise the number allowable a bit if we went back to GWB’s policy of letting felons in.

The group wants state and federal funding for pre-kindergarten programs that it says give children a solid foundation for academic and personal success.

Never saw this hook coming did ya? Just what we need, another big boatload of statists trolling the waters for the treasured TaxaChump GreenBack.

How long before they blame Bush?

I wonder how many thousands Philly pays for each student?

Funny. Doesn't Obama have 450,000 youngsters out in the countryside undergoing civilian military training?
One day you will see these bronzed gods come marching back home singing, “my heart belongs to Obama.”
Boy do the lyrics flow, “Good by Mama I'm off to serve Obama.”

and a lot of them are on ADD/ADHD medication, which are classified as psychiatric drugs and thus an automatic disqualifier.

If you read the entire article, it states that 75% of all youngsters across the country are not elegible for the service. Just what I needed this week..........bad information. Says a lot for our education system. I don’t think it has anything to do with pre-kindergarten education. It has to do with our teachers in all schools. This country did just fine in the past with our youth. Today they can’t even read or write.

UberFatbodies, gangbangers and/or retards are not the kind of individuals I want behind rifles, driving tanks or jumping out of airplanes.

Here is the problem. The thugs and degenerates of our society are allowed to proliferate while the best in our nation are wounded or killed in wars. Perhaps it would be better to take those 90% in Philly and use them for cannon fodder. It would be one of the quickest ways to improve society.

too uneducated
 
Charles Murray has data indicating that only 7% of all Black children in America are born to mothers with IQs of 100 or greater.
 
With the weapons systems [and medical systems and communications systems and even the logistical systems] becoming as sophisticated as they are in the 21st Century, it's very, very difficult to find productive work in the modern military which can be performed by folks with 2-digit IQs.

It's been shown repeatedly (and then some) that pre-kindergarten does not change intellectual outcomes. This sounds like a bunch angling for government grants.

That said, the 90% figure may be roughly accurate. I think the military has not been taking anyone below the 30th percentile on the entrance exam for some years now. I imagine that this exclusion, plus felons and physically unfit, could keep out a lot of people.

Items that disqualify you from joining the Navy.

1. Prior trouble with the law
2. Tatoos
3. Overweight
4. Drugs (pee test)
5. Basic knowledge exam (general knowledge for an 8th grader)

If they are talking about the inner city, that would make perfect sense.
