Selective Service proposes expanded registration

A new advance in gender equality!

Selective Service eyes women's draft
The chief of the Selective Service System has proposed registering women for the military draft and requiring that young Americans regularly inform the government about whether they have training in niche specialties needed in the armed services.

On the other hand, I may have to postpone that "No Longer Eligible for the Draft" party I was planning for November:
The proposal, which the agency's acting Director Lewis Brodsky presented to senior Pentagon officials just before the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq, also seeks to extend the age of draft registration to 34 years old, up from 25.


That is complete and utter bullshit. 34 years old and still able to be drafted??? Bullshit.

As for women being drafted, that's fine, go ahead. I already hated the draft, now I can hate it double as much. I am really feeling grouchy towards our "government" today...

NO way! Just no way!!
I hear that they pull this each year. I seriously hope this is all smoke and mirrors.
