    Well, Canada has wanted to improve the population numbers so here we go. This time people won't be ashamed to "sneak" off to Canada, they'll be bragging. Being a women and 56 I'm safe. I remember when we moved here from Canada in the early 60's we were all still Canadians when my brother was drafted for "Nam". You don't have to be a citizen to die for America, but you can't vote for who sends you.
    If I can't be a good example, then let me be a horrible warning.

    If they did bring back the draft would women be included?

    they're looking at it

    The chief of the Selective Service System has proposed registering women for the military draft and requiring that young Americans regularly inform the government about whether they have training in niche specialties needed in the armed services.

    Wtg, Bush voters. Do you get it, now??! Are you awake yet? Well, too late. He (with your help) made our bed, and now we all have to lie in it.

    I say whoever voted for Bush should be getting their limbs blown off by an IED in Iraq.

    Well, the dog cage isn't back from the cleaners yet..
    Don't worry about it...throw down a litter box and a few moldy sleeping bags from the basement and we're good.

    Absolutely agree. Instead of regularly informing the gov't of any specialty skills you might have, you should be forced to inform the gov't about your idiotic folly in the voting booth...but I'm guessing the Bushies already know.

    You mean, like get down for some carpet munching down at the local recruiting station? Actually, that makes me wonder? Is it more likely to get thrown out of the military if you're a gay man or a lesbian? I'm guessing no one gives a shit about the lesbians since the fear of penetration isn't quite the same issue.

    There is a difference in calling up the people who have signed up for military service with the understanding that they could very possibly be required to fight and in "drafting" random citizens. Just based on this article, I would say that people who aren't affiliated with the armed forces don't have to worry about being drafted. It's unfortunate that anyone has to go, but I'd rather have it be the people who have actually volunteered to do it (whether they expected to actually be needed or not) than every 18+ boy in the country.

    As for homosexuals, I don't think they have as much of a problem with lesbians as with gay men. I think it's because the girls in that field are expected to be tough or have masculine qualities, strength, and abilities, so if someone perceives one of the girls to be "butch" it's not really a bad thing. However, the other guys don't really think that the gay guys have those qualities, and I think that, along with irrational fears of getting sexually assaulted, is why there is so much discrimination against them.

    Yeah, if you say you're gay i dont think they can sign you thanks to that "don't ask, don't tell" thing.

    Then again, if there's a draft that seems like a really easy way out
