Harrisburg, we have a problem! I found this very funny and very telling about the citizens. If you got a draft notice for your dead grandfather or great grandfather would you be smart enough to know it was a mistake? Evidently many residents of PA have become dumb as a stump when they called to find out why they got a draft notice for someone borne between 1893 thru 1897 .....

I wonder if this is just a test to see how dumb and how afraid people are of the government because of the threatening words in the letter .....

14,000 Pennsylvainians get draft notices





the Selective Service System mistakenly sent notices to more than 14,000 Pennsylvania men born between 1893 and 1897, ordering them to register for the nation's military draft and warning that failure to do so is "punishable by a fine and imprisonment."

The agency realized the error when it began receiving calls from bewildered relatives last week.

I think there's something more to this than it appears. I think the only error is the date and not the fact that draft notices went out. 1993 - 1997 would certainly make sense.

Jesus. This is just proof our Government is incompetent. All the more reason to reduce the size of the Federal Government.

They weren't draft notices. They were letters about registering for Selective Service. Every guy gets one of these letters when they turn 18. It was a mistake by a clerk in the state DOT I hear.

This didn't have anything to do with the federal government. It was a state mistake all the way.
