The draft

Am I the only one that sees this story as being a little off? Every male in the US at the age of 18 is automatically registered for the draft and it is a punishable offense if you do not inform the Selective Service of a change in address…even though there are no plans to use the draft (riiiiiight). So, since this scary Democrat (ooo scary) is not actually saying he wants to include women -which I assume he does- and he has failed many times in the past to get the draft reinstated…why are we talking about it? The first part of his legislation is already in effect, so who cares? The second part won’t happen that quickly…so everyone has a chance to move to Canada or Mexico. :)

College students sound off on a military draft – CNN.com: “Their comments came Monday as U.S. Rep Charles Rangel — a New York Democrat who’s also the incoming chair of the House Ways and Means Committee — says he will introduce legislation next year that would reinstate the draft and require young Americans to register after turning 18. Rangel sees his idea as a way to deter politicians from launching wars.”
