Hi readers. I know it makes women feel more equal and better about themselves, but I’m wondering whether this Executive Order extending Selective Service registration to females is a good thing. Might be a sign of bad things coming down the pike, or they mightn’t do something to remind everyone there’s always a Draft Law hiding in the wings to snap up youngsters once the all-voluntary military folks have all sold themselves to Blackwater and other Mercenary groups for more money.
Is it not written, “For God, country and my babeeee”?
Are we going to give all that up, all it implies, all every adolescent could hope to believe, just to make girls feel more equal? Give them the right to get conscripted into the military for a couple of years no matter what they’d rather be doing? Give them a lead-pipe cinch to be raped half-to-death if they’re captured?
Well, I hadn’t really thought about it that way. Now that I do, I guess it’s actually a good thing, though still probably a dose of bad news in what it implies.
