Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie

They won't draft, but if they do they will damn sure lose any support they have for this war. If I was to be drafted it would signal my departure from this country.

If the media is talking about it, you can be pretty sure those in power are seriously discussing it and may have already made up their minds :wink:

You're here because you know something.
What you know you can't explain,
But you feel it;
You've felt it your entire life.
That there's something wrong with the world.
You don't know what it is, but it's there....
Like a splinter in your mind...
Driving you mad.

I have talked to a few in the media and for the most part they will talk about anything regardless of the quality of their sources.

The first sign of a draft and people start talking about haulin' ass. How's about stickin' around and fighting the system?

If the draft was reinstated, which I highly doubt, America would protest greatly. Don't worry about the draft. It ain't happening.

So you're gonna turn tail and run?

You support the war as long as it's some other poor bastard who has to die for it? That's big of you.

If you see many of his posts you'll come to realize that if a twist can be put on anything, PinocchiAl is the man to do it.


--------------------
You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

The poor bastards you speak of signed a contract where they agreed to do what they do. I signed no such contract and I consider the draft to be a violation of the most basic human rights. If I believed that I was needed to defend America (not just to let us continue to put troops all over the world while fighting a war) I would join of my own accord.

Aye! Hear, hear! If it were a matter of defending freedom I would fight, but it's not. Our fight for our freedom is here, right at home. It's a battle of wills, rather than of bombs, and the federal government is winning.
