You are dumb. Every post proves it.
There is nothing cold hearted in my position, which is not quite what you are pretending it is.
I'm sorry you are too old to be drafted if what the former sec of defense concerns come true.

History says no such thing. There are many instances of women fighting in history, even leading armies. You are mistaken. Have you forgotten Joan of Arc?

She is very much against choice when someone doesn't want to provide a product, pay for a servce or refuses to perform a service that goes against their moral fiber.
She is only for choice if it involves the possibility of aborting a fetus.

Which has nothing to do with you misrepresenting my position.

Yes, I'm too old. I do have both a son and a daughter who are not.

I believe you're remembering incorrectly. I remember people saying that about emergency situations, not elective abortions.
It was quite a while ago, so we will have to agree to disagree.

That has nothing to do with your stupid comments.
You claimed a woman would be "devistated" to have their daughters go to war, suggesting that they're less "devistated" by their sons going. Clearly you think the sons are expendable and the daughters aren't.
Perhaps its because I grew up in a family where women not only went into the military, but FOUGHT in it in Israel. That's the NORM there. It one of the reasons I went into our military, because I wasn't living in Israel as so many of our family was.
Too many people like you have screwed up idea's about this kind of thing. NOBODY want's their child/spouse/bother/sister/par ent to go to war. It happens. Normal - or to use your word - "sane" people deal with it.
Right.....were you in the services when you were a crankhead?

I dont - NOBODY wants to get used to the idea that ANYONE goes off to war. Your granddaughters are no more important than my grandsons or anyone elses kids or grandkids are or will be.
I don't think moms should be expendable.
But you think dads ARE expendable? Got it Inkstain.

You friggin' idiot.
History says men do the fighting.
History says blacks are slaves, Jews, gypsies, Poles etc.. were inferior and should be put to death, women shouldn't vote, blacks and whites shouldn't marry....

History says a LOT of shit that's wrong.
There is a lot of talk about the draft comming back and women will be included. In fact Panetta former director was just asked about it.
The draft isn't coming back anytime soon. People like you have been dong THE SKY IS FALLING thing since Nam. They talked about it during Grenada, Desert Storm and every other military action in the last 3 decades. Will it come back one day? Maybe. And if women WANT to fight for their country, they should be able to.

The draft isn't being discussed right now. This is about women's ability to VOLUNTEER for service, not be drafted.

Also, just because women may be able to volunteer to fight, doesn't mean they will be drafted.

So, who spoke for all men that made the draft universal for all males?

I would hate to see women on the front lines, but for certain would hate to see girls being made to go, becouse a few want to stand up and speak for all women.
Most women who scream about womens rights, are not considering that those women can speak for themselves, it is more about control with them.

SHow us these "concerns" from the Secretary of Defense. I just did a search, and Hagel hasn't said shit about it.


THere's been no conscription since 1973. If it wasn't reinstated after 9/11 when America was actually attacked, it would have to take something SERIOUSLY radical to force a draft again.

Oh and BTW you moron?

CONGRESS would have to change the Military Selective Service Act by extending to women its requirement that all male U.S. citizens and permanent residents register within 30 days of their 18th birthday.

In THIS Congress, its not like ANYTHING is getting done. Your grand-daughters are safe unless they volunteer. Its your grandsons that are screwed.

But hey, you dont care about them. You're "used" to it.

Keep clucking Chicken Little.

It was the norm THEN too stupid. YOU made the claim that what kids dealt with back then was ""mostly positive", and THAT is a flat out lie.

Apparently she feels the draft is a foregone conclusion.
And you know what? Maybe is is one day in the future - but it would take an act of Congress to change how the draft works, and who would be drafted.

No intelligent person can envision a Congress that would enact a draft women in it.

A volunteer military is a completely different animal than one filled by a military draft.

<quoted text>How did you gauge right and wrong before you adopted your new beliefs? I was taught basic ethics by the people who influenced me as a young child. These teachings were reinforced by experience. In my case, I was instilled with a solid set of moral values and had a childhood free of serious mental trauma. Why don't you read a text on human development and psychology?
Okay, that's the end of our interactions. Bubbye.
Exactly Elise. 20 some odd years ago or more *cough* I bought into the whole organized Baptist religion thing. I found myself "hoping" I had pleased God and fearing constantly that I had done something to offend God because there are so many "critics" out there. Most of them were fellow Baptist. Then I took an Ethics class while in Nursing School. Next to Anat & Phys, and Biology, it was one of my favs. Passed it with A's haha. Of course it got controversial at times, but it opened my mind and my eyes. I for one do not need religion to define for me what is morally correct. I think it's natural to know. Comparatively, there are few human beings that absolutely do not know right from wrong.

If a draft ever happens again, and women aren't drafted, I wonder if women will be demanding equality and insisting that they be included.....
