16. mescaline dose 1 hour prior to evaluation
should do it :evilgrin: :evilgrin:

Attempting to passionately kiss the evaluator (if male) could also prove useful - especially if you exclain how much he looks like your brother...your twin brother - the one who died when he was born.

8. Why don't you just go to work for the NOAA?
Edited on Mon Jun-14-04 07:37 PM by Dems Will Win
There's a special exemption for it!

"<1-C> Members of the Armed Forces of the United States, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration or the Public Health Service;"


Then you can work to save the climate and evade the draft at the same time!

Just a suggestion.

22. someone posted here in the past week that college deferments
will not be a part of the new legislation currently sneaking through congress. In fact, if you are drafted in October, you must report by December, can't even finish off your year (so much for financial aid....(

27. The deferments ended long before Rangel's bill
People are so damn confused by the Dem bills. Just forget about them!

There already is a men-only DRAFT and Bush is reactivating it for June 15, 2005. The Dem Bills are not needed for the DRAFT to be reactivated. All that is needed is a trigger Resolution after Bush asks on April 1, 2005 for the DRAFT, saying "We won't cut and run from Iraq." (Then he'll invade Syria and Iran later on with the DRAFTEES)

There already is a men-only DRAFT and Bush is reactivating it for June 15, 2005.

That's all you have to say to yourself.

Let's say it together.

There already is a men-only DRAFT and Bush is reactivating it for June 15, 2005.

There already is a men-only DRAFT and Bush is reactivating it for June 15, 2005.

There already is a men-only DRAFT and Bush is reactivating it for June 15, 2005.

There already is a men-only DRAFT and Bush is reactivating it for June 15, 2005.

There already is a men-only DRAFT and Bush is reactivating it for June 15, 2005.

Please say that 5 times a day--to other people.

Thank you.

How is it that no one knows about the draft coming? Do people really have their heads that far in the sand? Why is everyone so blind?

25. 3-A hardship question
Would being a single mom (where father may or may not be dead; has disappeared) count as hardship?

such a thing but I am thankful my son has autism. For all the years of heartache at least he is safe.

28. Does Anyone Have a Link?
I can tell people over and over, but a good credible link will help best. I checked Snopes but they have it filed under "probably not" or they did last time I checked. But then, from the Michael Moore response, the Kerry swearing stuff, etc., I tend to think Snopes leans to the right rather heavily.
