      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

cc.com is now a recruiting office?

Recommended Posts

WTF is up with the Go Army recruiting banner ad at the top of cc.com? I don't mind climbing ads on account of gear is pretty sweet and the site need funding, but military recruiting? I'm pretty sure that this site isn't the Army's target audience, as the posters are pretty much either effete Seattle liberals and chickenhawk Tacoma conservatives. What's next, Pottery Barn ads? Maybe McDonalds? WTF?

the military has started to target this type of a crowd for special forces recruiting. climbers, triathletes, adventure racers and the like have the ability to go harder longer and thats what they are looking for!

We are hoping Seahawks, Pink and KKK will sign up.

 

Sadly, the ads are a waste of taxpayer dollars. Guys like Tucker never serve, he's content to fight the terrist from behind his keyboard.

jon and timm@y can pay the hosting bills however they want imho.

 

"it's not what you think, it's how you think" the brainwashing starts early. if that game cd is like the one i downloaded a few years back it is a first person action shooter game. the army did studies during wwii that showed only about 10% of grunts were shooting at the enemy. by vietnam they had adopted the pop-up pop-down torso silhouette targets invented by the germans during wwii that did a much better job of conditioning recruits to shoot at people automatically and without thinking. the % of grunts shooting at the enemy rose to about 90%. these first person shooter games would seem to work in a very similar way (it's the same kind of game opponents of violent video games are up in arms about). getting kids to play these army games might be conditioning them to shoot reflexively before they even enter basic training. i remember a while back ronald reagan saying that young game junkies would make good fighter pilots when they grew up.

 

just an observation.

Wishing for the death of your political adversaries: you'd make a fine Nazi.

 

Enlisting = death?

 

Way to support the troops, Tucker. :tdown:

I don't have a problem with the ad. If you do, you can stop coming here. The hosts won't be losing any money if you don't log on anymore.

Free speech - EXACTLY - as exercised by the military advertisement. Thanks for coming around to that realization and supporting this CC.com sponsorship.
