One of the more controversial topics to come up during the infidel Americans' current futile exercise in democracy is the possibility of a military draft being reinstituted. Bush's opponent, who surprisingly has not yet been jailed (after all, that's what I used to with MY opponents) has said that the President already has plans to do that. Bush, of course, who is fighting to keep from joining the ranks of the unemployed, denies the accusation. And we ALL know what his credibility is like, don't we?

So who's telling the truth? Who knows? But here's a clue: The US army is strongly considering adding women to its combat units to offset a serious shortage of personnel. Well, guess what? If they're so desperate for people that they're thinking about doing that, it means that more soldiers are needed. And if fewer people are enlisting voluntarily, then that means that the draft can't be far behind.

Sure, Bush has promised that there won't be a draft. But all he has to do is declare that circumstances have changed because of the ongoing "War on Terror," which includes attacking countries that don't have any frikkin' terrorists in it, and the Republican congress will immediately roll over and vote to restart the draft.

So if you're an American between the ages of 18 and 25, and you want to be President in about 30 years or so, ask your rich and influential daddy to get you into the Texas Air National Guard now!
