Nothing is going to happen because of the weak resolution.

[QUOTE=I need to hurry and inlist before hey take away the 40g bonus[/QUOTE]

That $40 G's isn't really $40 G's...Take 28% off the top for taxes and you get $28800, now divide that number by 2. That is your lump sum payment of $14,400. Now take $14,400 and divide that by how many years you enlist...four commitment equals $3600 a year as a bonus and six year enlistment which usually what you have sign up for to get the "big bucks" equals $2400 a year. Take it from me, no amount of money is worth spending 18 months away from your loved ones and getting shot at 23 hours out of the day really isn't all that fun!

But the draft would never go through with all the liberals anyway and if it did we'd be at war with Canada because they don't want us in their country either!

Well we see how well that's working out for them! I personally don't think we'll ever see the draft again...if anything I see downsizing of the military in the future. We were downsizing the entire time I was in and most jobs minus being a bullet catcher are now being done by contractors in the private sector. Anyone whose been in the Air Force since 9/11 knows that the AF cut several thousand jobs and sent its Airmen packing with a small severance package and a "Good Luck". They didn't even get the option of retraining into a critically manned career field, just an early out with chance of ever being able to enlist in the AF again. A lot of those Airmen ended up going to the Army and wasting the training that the AF spent big bucks on to go become "Bullet Catchers".

Plus with base realignments and bases closing I just don't see a draft working. Besides, joe taxpayer is as tired as the rest of us as financing a 80 billion war annually. I guess for those worried about a draft I say, have your passport ready! I'd choose sipping corona's in Mexico over freezing my ass of in Canada.

There ya go, my 2 1/2 cents!

Um...there is some kind of registration for a draft now isn't there? I remember when filing out financial aid forms, that males had to 'register' for the draft or something along those lines in order to receive financial aid for college.

That isnt the draft but I know what you are talking about. I cant think of the word. Every male has to do it when they turn 18.
