Remember when all those Hollywood Helicopter Moms jumped and bumped to get their stupidity-prone offspring into the best colleges and universities and on scholarships?!? You ain't seen nuthin' yet until you try to pull the Princes and Princesses off the college-track to make them join the military. Get enough popcorn to see you through it all. And beer.

Guess it is easy to register for a non-existent draft. How about EVERY American serve in the military for two years and then another two years at home. The USA would be a much better place.

This is wrong on so many levels I cant even begin. I was fat when I joined but twiggy compared to many of the teens nowadays. How many will get pregnant to avoid this future draft? How pathetic a people are we if we have to send our girls to fight for us? Does this mean the war is lost before it is started?

Our armed forces administrations know that if we have to draft qualified individuals we cannot do so by drafting only males. Too many males (percentage wise in the relevant ages) are unfit for military service because, among other disqualifications, too many have disqualifying criminal records, past or current drug use, or cannot pass the physical and/or mental tests. It's a dangerous national disgrace. Too many draft eligible males are too fat, lazy, drugged and/or stupid. I would not want them in my foxhole.

So the U.S. Congress can presume to decide that the women can go to war just like the men and that's, 'progress.' Families are not important to this Congress anymore, nor are the roles of mother, father, son & daughter. They are each the same, eh? This will not work out well. ...???!!!

Three things changed this country forever: They stopped the draft and boys did not become men. They became soy boys or criminals. They took prayer out of school and nobody has the fear of G-d anymore Women went to work and nobody cuddled these kids. They (not all) have been in day care or some institution most of their lives. No empathy. You don't see whiners in Israel. Always some type of service they can do for the country. Maybe protect our own borders for a change.

I’m not keen on women being put into combat but I think putting every 18 year old through boot camp and then assigning them other military jobs is a great idea. My husband walked into a Marine Corps recruiting office in 1969 and told them to sign him up. The Corps took a 19 year old boy and made him into a man.

Start with all of the ugly fat white female 20-somethings who make up most of the BLM movement. Teach them discipline and responsibility with consequences. Once out of boot camp, put them in support jobs.

Are men and women the same in terms of strength? Do we really want to put women of childbearing age in harm's way? Are we safe with a majority female (or even large minority) armed forces? I think women should be excluded from combat roles, period and not subject to draft registration.

The COVID Blood On Biden’s Hands 3 replies

That headline might be a little provocative, but it’s true. Not that Joe Biden is roaming the streets infecting people with COVID 19, but his policies on everything from messaging to the southern border are his direct responsibility and they’re hurting and killing Americans. When it comes to messaging, this White House has taken the approach Democrats in Congress have employed for years, and one at which the administration of Barack Obama excelled – being a complete jackass. That’s about as polite as I can put it, and not the word I would use were it up to me.
