got A Cool Draft?

I am never too surer why from time to time freaks whine about the need to give up the right thing and get a draft into play, since, well gosh, some 70% of americans supported invading Iraq, hence, since the US Military is alledged to be broken, therefore the sole solution is that we must have a draft, so that we can get more cheap conscripts to be the boots on the ground....

As a rhetorical posture, this makes great sense for the anti-War crowd, since they failed to learn from McCain. When he was asked how many more troops were needed, he said, '30,000' - and so the surge of 2007 was born, and we have had the most SurgeTastical Of Surges, EVER!!!! So of course the typical brain dead anti-war type presumes that Majikally if they call for a draft that this will get us a draft, and that in some majikal way that will solve some problem.

But would it? And if so, what is the problem that is suppose to be solved?

We know that clearly the free market system has offered us up the two track model - those American Troops whom we send in to protect the locals, at discount warehouse to you wholesale prices, and then, well, there are the BlackWater Army Types, that we send to protect the Important Americans.

So is the real problem that the cost here is the main issue that needs to be addressed? That the BlackWater Army costs the american tax payers way too much to field a mere 250,000 of them in lieu of a collection of dopes too unSmart to avoid military service in a time of Not a Draft!!! Since clearly with a full field force of BlackWater Army types, we would be able to More Win in Iraq, than we have been with the sort of welfare queens who want the government to over-regulate the war thing, and well, let us be brutally honest, one gets for what one pays for, and at the going rate, the US Military while better than some, is still well below what they can make when they get hired into the BlackWaterArmy....

Which, well, also does get at the heart of another ugly part of the discussion, namely why the ProWarTypes are always so willing to play all sorts of semantical games - and wave a lot of flags.... But then hope that no one will ever catch on to this little dialectical tension.... Since, well, gosh, if we were, well, that Patriotic, then gosh, wouldn't folks want to be the Most Active Duty that they can be.... But what we keep seeing is that, well, it's not really for our class of persons...

So please, remind me again, what REALLY is the value in getting more Boots On The Ground, at discount to you prices??? I mean, what does that really save us??? Are they really cheaper than massive Air Bombardment, and then the final shift to "Nuke First, Ask Questions Later", since, well, it's a serious need to win IraqVietnamIran. Or are those options more cost prohibative than the BlackWater Army, hence the need for more welfare queens on the front lines.

Come On Boys and girls, since no one REALLY believes in the CounterInsurgency Issue, and gosh, do we really want to be the Next France, play second fiddle about a War in Iran??? What IS it that americans are now More At War Than Ever Before!!! Even IF this is an ugly time of not having the Draft to validate that Service In The Fighting 101st Keyboardist is the Divine Will Of the Divine Way!!!

Why Jesus Gave Us Nuclear Weapons...

Well besides the fact that he loves us more, there is the need to be able to make sure that US Treasury Buyers understand that a mere 50 bip dump in the Fed Rate is not a good enough excuse for them to bail out on their GOD GIVEN OBLIGATIONS to support the Holy Trinity of War President, War Czar, and Praetor Petreaus.

Because not only do we know were you live, we have the nukes to solve that problem, and the pre-emptive doctrines to make it all OK.

Especially because Jesus LOVES US more than you.

Space Aliens Take Over San Francisco!!!!

Ok, yes, technically one might be able to misinterpret the Spleen Leaking from Michael Savage as actually suggesting that SF has adopted a Medical Care Programme specifically designed to allow Illegal Space Aliens to take over SF. Which is not really the first time, as many of us are still upset that former Governor Pistol Pete FAILED in his duty, and campaign promise, to Protect Californian Space Aliens from those Illegal Space Aliens that were leaving AREA 51 to take over the high paying jobs from Californian Space Aliens. I mean, do we need a whole bunch of out of state Space Aliens taking away those high paying jobs????

Or we could talk about the froot Battery of Savage's website: "BULL-DYKE FASCIST TASERS STUDENT WHO ASKS KERRY TOO MANY QUESTIONS" Why yes, those Space Aliens taking away the high paying jobs in San Francisco, is, well, only modestly off the Rez...

Thank GOD it is not like Michael Savage and the DraftDodgingWhileThereIsNoDraftProWarWheenies have much of a leg to stand on these days...

Fraud In The WhateverOnWhomever

I have not had an opportunity to read a letter from the Chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. I have just completed a visit to Afghanistan and am en route to Baghdad for the remainder of September.

In this trip and throughout my term as Inspector General, I have been committed to discharging my statutory responsibilities under the Inspector General Act of 1978 to the best of my ability and without regard for personal interest.
...
In particular, I made one of my best investigators available to help Assistant U.S. Attorneys in North Carolina in their investigation into alleged smuggling of weapons into Iraq by a contractor.

[ cf Statement From State Department IG ]
What???

North Carolina???

WHAT???

Stay tooned...

Who Is On Who's Side In The Most Holiest Of Wars...

Ok, so I find it interesting
I'll get straight to your main question: Do these kids understand that Jesus did not say, "Go forth and find me a decent Supreme Court justice who will support the Republican agenda"? As you well know, you are not the first Christian ex-politico to agonize over the question of how politics corrupts the faithful. In Blinded by Might, Cal Thomas and Ed Dobson wrote about how Christian leaders' heads swelled when they started getting invited to the Reagan White House. (When Thomas said something not vicious about Hillary Clinton to a reporter in the '90s, Jerry Falwell sent him a note saying: "Unforgivable compromise. Don't ever call me again.")

In my book, I wrote about some of the Patrick Henry kids campaigning for Jerry Kilgore, who ran against Tim Kaine for Virginia governor. Kaine is a Democrat, but he has a very convincing Christian testimony. On the campaign trail, he told the story of how a mission trip changed his life and made it impossible for him to support the death penalty. In a very pro-death-penalty state, this was a brave thing to do. I showed some of the kids interviews with Kaine in which he spoke in moving, sincere ways about his faith.

[ cf Debating God's Harvard ]
Now remind me again, which is the true conservative in that discussion???

Ah yes... but do these people support the One True And ONLY Holy Trilogy, of War President, War Czar, and Praetor Petreaus!!! Clearly if they are not the right type of true believers, then, they are in league with satan.

Hum... I wonder which of them are the evil doing evil doers.... you know, not on the right side of the Most Holyiest of Holy Crusades....

Why DO the ProWarTypes hate not only america but the professional military?

Not the Rent_A_WarMonger but the actual professionals. I have so few words that I can say here, read digby's and please remind me again why all of those ProWarTypes are still play acting as IF being members of the fighting 101st KeyBoardists Means DICKALL??? Abizaid The Double Agent.

Ah yes, once upon a time the FreeperVille Follies and the little green footballers were all opposed to the ideologs of the left wing, because of their devotion to those of us who served... and now.... ah yes...

Please, remind me again why they are friends..
