Bush War Advisor Says Draft Worth a Look
There is no way the war hawks will let their children die in this war.
Frequent tours for U.S. forces in Iraq and Afghanistan have stressed the all-volunteer force and made it worth considering a return to a military draft, President Bush’s new war adviser said Friday.
“I think it makes sense to certainly consider it,” Army Lt. Gen. Douglas Lute said in an interview with National Public Radio’s “All Things Considered.”

Well, it’s getting too expensive to buy soldiers. According to my newspaper, it’s costing nearly $45,000 in singing bonuses per head to persuade recruits to sign up.
First draftees? The Bush twins, of course. They can learn to do something other than drink and party.
Second, Mitt Romney’s five draft age sons. The Daily Show showed a reporter asking Romney if any of his sons were going to serve in Iraq… Romney, desperately and stupidly, said they were “serving” by working to get him elected. This was followed by a clip showing the rigors faced by the Romney sons while traveling in an RV campaigning for their father.
In the Civil War, rich parents could pay someone $300 to serve instead of their “drafted” son. In Vietnam, rich folks arranged for college “deferments.” Wonder how the rich and powerful(i.e. mostly conservatives) will make sure that their little darlings won’t have to head to Iraq….
I saw the report about Romney’s sons. I’d like to slap him! There are a lot of mothers and fathers out there who would like to have their sons and daughters helping them with just about anything.
I have 2 sons so I’m going to be sick if they have a draft. My son’s aren’t going. I’ll shoot them in the foot or take them to another country. I’ll not give my sons up for this war for oil.

Oh yeah, the draft! Well, sadly it’s about all I can think of that’ll get people in this country to end their case of Crainial Rectosis, and put down their freakin iFonez and stop watching American Retard Idol for 3 minutes. It’s truly a sad commentary ain’t it?!
Oh and may I also shamelessly plug http://Lu666Cifer.blogspot.com and http://groups.yahoo.com/group/LeftWingRadicals/join
and in closing: F. W! STILL NOT MY PRESIDENT, YOU SACK OF SHIT! BUSH SUCKS DICK, CHENEY TOO! (Odd, people say I’m vulgar…)
I didn’t know I had the verification thing turned on. I’ll check the settings.
The current crooks in charge tend to drive normal people to vulgarisms.

Actually I was more so meaning how on MY thingy when I post a bloggenstien it gives me that crap! I’m like OH COME ON! IT’S *MY* BLOG, ME, YES ME POSTING! NOT SOME SPAMMER! It’s amazing there haven’t been riots from coast to coast thanks to the BU$Hitler Crime Family, but ya know, 26 years of Raygoonomics destroying the middle class and having us all work 9 jobs just to make ends meet (maybe) tends to do that…
