    Sorry about that, I never gave it a thought. I guess I am an old fashioned male chauvinist pig who usually uses the term him, he, man to refer to everyone as I was taught in school back in the 50's. I always use the term congressman, never congresswoman or congressperson as an example. But I still open doors and pull out chairs for women or girls regardless of age. Just my upbringing I guess. She huh? I just considered you a friend and someone nice to talk to and get your views from. I suppose I have made that mistake quite a few time, especially over the internet.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I really never gave it a thought. I got what is called a one track mind and when I am typing, I am typing and not looking around at an avatar or anything else. Oh well. Everyone has to step on it now in then or in it depending I suppose.

    Every MALE born from 1959 was and still is required to register with the Selective Service, which can be done at the post office. Failing to do so is to be punished:

    1. 5 years in federal prison.
    2. $250,000 in fines.
    3. Lose of voting rights, gun ownership rights and all other loses associated with a felony conviction.
    4. Banned from ever holding a federal job or job with the post office.
    5. Banned from only most political offices and many other types of employment.
    6. Generally also then being unable to be bonded or licensed for many professions, including as an attorney.
    7. Banned from most law enforcement positions.

    Most states also have penalties.

    Shouldn't every male who has not or did not register as required be promptly arrested and prosecuted since everyone must follow the law and there should never be any exceptions or excuses allowed?

    - - -

    Registering for the Draft: It's Still the Law
    A lot of those penalties sound harsh but as it is the law to be registered, they should be given a 2 week notice and if they have not registered by then, then yes i would say arrest them for a felony.
    War is not a tool to satisfy your emotional outbursts.

    There are usually far more men on political sites than women, so it's not unusual to assume you're talking to a man. It's interesting that we can use the term them, though, which can include both men and women, without anyone questioning the word.

    Well, as long as it wasn't a Katoey. But over the internet, I wouldn't mind that either.

    From what I understand about a Katoey, it's possible to be talking to both sexes in one person. You can't ever be wrong! win-win...

    The embargo was put in place in order to intentionally provoke the Japanese into attacking us in order to pull us into the war.It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that if you slap a embargo on a country that country is going to be pretty pissed and retaliate. It was practically the same thing with WWI, we were sending in supply ships to Britain and few other countries and those ships were sunk and that pulled us into WWI.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
