2. Priceless...
"compulsory induction of the adult non-homosexual population into active combat duty in the War Against Terror"

and great opinion poll at the bottom:
----------------------------------------
1. My opinion of long-term, high-casualty war without definable objectives is... Select...FavorableUnfavorable
2. My opinion of Vietnam-avoiding conservatives playing real-world RISK is...
3. My opinion of mid-career political conversions to liberal nation building theory is...
4. My opinion of boring facts that don't support launching bitchin' invasions is...
5. My opinion of fairies who say mass-scale killing should be a last resort is...
6. My opinion of being emotionally strip-mined, then reengineered into a patriotic zombie who'll run screaming into a blizzard of hot lead at the toot of a whistle is...
7. ...especially when it helps Sean Hannity sell books:
7. George W. Bush, the Commander in Chief, is absolutely and always 1000% correct.
6. Iraq was still stockpiling Weapons of Mass Destruction in 2003.
6. Iraq was in league with al Qaeda.
6. Iraq was involved in the 9/11 attacks on America.
6. Flying purple unicorns burp rainbows and poop ruby-encrusted marshmallow flowers!

9. I Looked Twice To Make Sure That I (And Tarheel's Post) Was In The LOUNGE
before I would allow myself to get worked up over it. Now if you had accidentally (whoopsie!) posted this in GD, then my heart would have raced for a second or two and my blood pressure would have bubbled a couple of extra psi.

This must be the section of the form they use to determine qualification for deferment. What do you think ? :shrug:

10. Personally I can't wait for the Draft to start
THEN we'll see all these "brave" big-talking chickenhawks go either running for the Canadian border or begin their own "I'm insane" campaign a la Ted Nugent (et al) soiling himself & living in it for a month.

With all the big chickenhawk mouths running on in blogland and on boards, one wonders why THEY aren't ALREADY in uniform "Fighting" (which apparently includes the torturing of prisoners).

Well, no wonder -- they're COWARDS

Unfortunately, although the Draft IS coming, there's NO WAY BOOsh will reopen the draft prior to early November.
But oh about.... mid November, if BOOsh is in power, it'll be opened.

Mark my words.
