    Funny how that works huh
    Problem is those kids are probably deadbeats, mommy and daddy wouldn't but them any more first person shooter games after they hit the age 18, so they decided to join the forces with the hopes of getting to play some more.

    Volunteering to serve yourself up to a government that you dislike is not a rational decision IMO.

    You don't deserve to even post in this thread.

    Yeah? What you gonna do misterman? Write a blog?

    I would LOVE to be the fly on the wall watching you come up on a United States Marine and telling him what YOU will or will not let him get away with.

    This thread is getting amusing. Piss on it. LOL!

    No clue what bankers and fraud have to do with this...

    Well you and others are saying how this sets some precedent and how it will enrage the terrorists and how they'll increase recruitment because of such a dishonorable act. It's only fair to point out the dishonor is theirs. That doesn't excuse anything but there is no set precedent here - that's just nonsense.

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Damn! We Cheeseheads sure do think alike. When you were writing this, I was writing my post asking the same damn thing.

    Great minds think alike.

    Sorry Maggie, but I believe that if there hadn't been enough volunteers we wouldn't be there right now, a draft is what we should use when there is a real conflict that needs to be corrected by the good citizens of the USA, not volunteers who might be down on their luck and who are looking for a way out of their personal messes.

    Sorry, Mattillac...my post still goes. That's one hell of a way to look at those men and women who volunteer to serve in the armed forces. I don't know the demographics of those who enlist in the service. Neither do you. To say they're down on their luck and looking for a way out is an opinion. You're entitled to it, but don't denigrate the entire United States military by assuming motives that come from your own obvious bias.

    LOL - like by the people who were willing to shoot their thumbs off to avoid going? Those draftees?

    Or the draftees who were so incapable of fighting and unwilling to do so that they ended up being nothing but cannon fodder?

    Or the women who - oh wait - we not allowed to be drafted.

    The draft, when enacted, served only to toss more people into the field to quickly be shot down - it didn't bolster anything or 'fix' the problem. If someone doesn't want to BE there - they shouldn't BE there.

    I think it's pathetic enough that we don't let people go who DO want to go - you know, why not! But what we're in now isn't a war of contrition . . we have more than enough boots on the ground and ten times as many in garrison . . . just waiting around with nothing to do.
