139. Thanks to this story * just lost 2 votes!
Whee!!!! My father-in-law and his wife are die-hard republicans. They also sired 4 girls all of whom are under 30. Now he and his wife are confronted with the possibility that all 4 daughters are up for grabs, plus my self and my sister-in-law's husband. They are livid that their 6 "kids" (They consider us husbands as their children now) may go fight somewhere in the world that looks more and more like Viet Nam every day.

They are particularly worried because they feel that my skills as a computer administrator (Linux and Windows) will some how bump me higher in the draft lottery.

They are actually talking like the draft is here already! My in-laws have now said that they won't be voting for * come November.

I bet if this continues, * and his fellow crooks will yank these draft changes off the table, the reaction to it has not been good.
