    No. Though I do have issue with a punk ass bitch suggesting that "brilliant" people don't (or, better yet, shouldn't) do military work and that the stupid "unemployable" remainder should be left for the "grunt work."
    down for you is up

    who is the punk ass bitch you are referring to

    and yes if the good of society is all that matters-grunt work should be relegated to those unable to do higher functioning tasks

    Which it is currently and which it would be under a draft. It is not as though the draft would immediately assign who goes to Afghanistan and who calculates satellite trajectories.

    The bigger danger to society, in my opinion, would be one segment of society bleeding and the other buying their way out, and the long term effects such a policy could have. If that were to be the case, it would be better that we just keep a volunteer force that allows those who have the means and no desire to serve to do as they will.

    Also, I am sorry I should not have insulted you. It was a knee jerk reaction.

    Women shouldn't be in the military at all.

    How about we just get rid of selective service registration instead?
    When it's the right thing to do, it's the right thing to do.

    There were a buttload of changes for infrastructure, laws, courts, etc when civil rights for blacks and women were implemented, and the same for handicap accessibility.

    It doesnt mean the changes and costs are wrong. Since when is doing the right thing 'convenient?'

    If we are going to have equality between men and women, we can't let women pick and choose which parts of being equal they want.

    Be my guest.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Our men should NEVER be used as cannon fodder either.
