I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
I have an answer for everything...you may not like the answer or it may not satisfy your curiosity..but it will still be an answer. ~ Kal'Stang
My mind and my heart are saying I'm in my twenties. My body is pointing at my mind and heart and laughing its ass off. ~ Kal'Stang
We are fortunate to be surrounded by friends and "non-enemies", Israel is not...
Even at age 72, I'd volunteer if invaded directly(as Israel has been in the past), but NOT for another foreign adventure - even China trying to take over Twiwan.....which could happen....
If it were a situation like WWII, in which the nation had been attacked by other nations bent on world domination, the US had declared war, the entire nation was on a war footing, then yes, I'd go.
If it were a situation like Vietnam or Iraq, hell no, won't go!
and conscription isn't quite as unlikely as you might think. We had a draft just a few years back, after all, and didn't have to send professional military back for tour after tour until they were burned out.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
