SINCE THIS COUNTRY IS SO KEEN ON INVADING EVERY COUNTRY, THEN TIME TO REVIVE THE DRAFT FOR ALL OR BETTER YET EVERYONE MUST SERVE FOR TWO YEARS

DAMN, I just can’t seem to go “fishin”.

When I was a young kid I would watch both the Vietnam War on TV (and all is ugliness, something you did see with wars today) and the draft. I would see if my number would come up, even though I was too young to serve. I came from a family where my dad and all my uncles except one served in all of the branches of the military during WWII. The few older cousins of age, did not get drafted due to medical reason. But the Vietnam draft ended in 1973 and we have not had a draft since then. Well, since our country loves to get into wars all the time, maybe it is time to not only revive the draft, but that all young men and women at a certain age should serve in the military for two years in some form or another, that way not only lower economic men and women, black and Hispanic would be serving but all including entitled rich white folks, like asshole thug PharmBro, Martin Shkreli. If that was the case, I bet we would not be heading to war at the drop of the hat. I bet these asshole elected officials, most who have not served, would not be so hawkish if there spoiled brats had to serve.

And considering how wimpy and such babies today’s young folks are with their “man buns”, their “you hurt my feelings” and all their other whinny ass shit, this would be perfect. Because we are growing a bunch of pussies who get trophies for just showing up.

In many countries like Israel and I am not sure if Italy still has the requirement, but EVERYONE MUST SERVE.

Everyone wants to claim to be patriotic, yet only a few actually serve our country and protect us, everyone else wants other to do the heavy lifting and that is the problem with our country today, everybody wants the benefits, nobody wants to do the grunt work. Just like most want a clean Jamaica, but very few want to do anything.

In the article below this says it all:

In retrospect, the draft was the great equalizer — for men, anyway. They were forced to get off their butts — rich, poor, middle class — get whipped into shape, become disciplined, earn and learn respect for authority and each other, as well as the fundamental human necessity to give back to the country that has given us everything.

All Americans should be conscripted to serve two years in some capacity — in a military or nonmilitary role.

We’ve become a country of expectants — people who expect to have it all without giving back anything at all. We expect to be the Kardashians, people who have made social media — not social responsibility.

Does not get any more truthful than that.

The Daily News:

STASI: It’s time to revive the draft — and include women, too

draftThe draft could be the great equalizer for women, who would have to sacrifice as much as men.

The Senate, aka the war room, may soon go into full hand-to-hand combat over whether women should be required to sign up for the draft.

Not that anyone’s been drafted since 1973 — but that’s the kind of nonsense we pay these fools to do: waste their time and our money arguing about something that doesn’t exist. But if it did, we should. Be drafted along with men, I mean.

So who in the Senate is against requiring women to register for the nonexistent draft that men must still register for? Gun-loving, warmongering Ted Cruz, among other conservatives, that’s who.

In a statement to Conservative Review, Cruz wrote, “I cannot in good conscience vote to draft our daughters into the military, sending them off to war and forcing them into combat.”

Carrying guns into war if you’re a woman? No! Carrying guns into schools, auditoriums, movie theaters, malls and places of worship no matter what your gender? You bet!

Serving in the military if you’re a man? Yes.

Serving in the military if you’re Ted Cruz? No.

Worse, the House voted the bill down recently after it was proposed by Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.), who is an opponent of women serving in combat in the first place. He proposed it so it could be defeated, which it nearly wasn’t, which in turn nearly gave him a heart attack. Your tax dollars at work for you!

Everybody’s wrong. Both men and women should not just register, but serve.

In retrospect, the draft was the great equalizer — for men, anyway. They were forced to get off their butts — rich, poor, middle class — get whipped into shape, become disciplined, earn and learn respect for authority and each other, as well as the fundamental human necessity to give back to the country that has given us everything.

All Americans should be conscripted to serve two years in some capacity — in a military or nonmilitary role.

We’ve become a country of expectants — people who expect to have it all without giving back anything at all. We expect to be the Kardashians, people who have made social media — not social responsibility.

In Israel, young men and women, with a few exceptions, must serve in the military.

So despite taking 32 months (for men) out of their lives and 24 months (for women) to serve their country, you don’t find a whole lot of disgruntled, complaining Israelis who think their country owes them a living.

What you do find are a whole lot of Israelis willing to do their part and proud of having done so when they are done doing so.

Can you imagine demanding that our American kids, with their senses of entitlement, live in a barracks, get rid of their cell phones during basic training and sacrifice two years in service to their country?

Even Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton wouldn’t — and didn’t — do that!
