Why are you busting this guys chops over registering for SS? Hey, he registered and said he'd serve if he were drafted. Nothing wrong with that.
If someone doesn't want to register, that's cool, too. Just remember the consequences of your actions.

Well that pretty easy for you to say, im assuming that your far from the drafting age. I love how people generalize an entire generation for being lazy and druggies when only a minority are to blame. Sure there are lazy kids, but haven't there always??
"The children now love luxury. They have bad manners, contempt for
authority, they show disrespect to their elders.... They no longer
rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents,
chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their
legs, and are tyrants over their teachers." Socrates (469–399 B.C.)
If anyone is to blame its the previous generation who did a poor job raising them. I do agree that people kids need more discipline, but do you think a draft will do anything other than cost more american lives? You can sit behind your keyboard and preach all you want, but unless your within the age to be drafted you really hold no respect from me . Can i ask you a few questions? have you ever been to war? were you ever drafted? Maybe you have, and maybe you were drafted for Vietnam, but all im trying to say is that you might mean well, however ill be damned if im drafted and taken out of college to fight in a war that was wrong to begin with.
No, I was not drafted or serve in the military. My son was in the National Guard and my daughter is stationed at Fort Campbell right now and will go to Afghanistan later this year.
All I'm saying is children that are raised with no expectations of them will have no expectations of themselves.
As adults we should make them make choices that will lead them into productive choices for their lives.
Service to their country, to humanity, to the higher good of every human being is something we should demand of them. I didn't say they had to serve in the military. I said they should be made to make a choice between college, the Peace Corp, or get drafted..
Letting them lay around and get stoned or do nothing with their lives isn't working.
As the adult generation, it's a debt we owe the up and coming generation.

What if the threat to American "national security" is nothing more than a CIA false-flag operation, like 9/11?

I with my other 6 panel / board members will decide if that person will or will not be exempt from this program.
So as I am disabiled (paralized from the waist down, confinded in a wheelchair) I feel honored to serve my country anyway I am abled to...
So don't think it 'WILL NOT HAPPEN', think again my friends it is just a matter of time and that time is drawing very near....
Peace and good luck to you all in the 18-42 age range for your time to do your part for this (your) country is near....
I've only one word for those who would choose to 'run away' COWARDs! Pack your bags leave now this country doesn't need your kind anyway.
This will be my one and only post on this matter because I'm certian there are many who will want to slam/flame me for my calling the runaways cowards ... I feel it is useless to go back en forth will name calling and insults ... so no verbal banter from me on this one
Again Peace all no matter which way you feel on this matter!

Draft our kids and then have 100,000 troops wiped out from a counter attack while attacking Iran. Since I am sure Iraq theater deployment would go from 250,000 to 500,000 + in a blink of an eye this makes for a target rich enviroment and if you amass a 200,000 to 300,000 + ground force might be easy to lose 100,000 real quick.
This happens with our children being drafted for a non sense war guaranteed the remaining CONUS able body men of my generation some 30 or 50 million gun toting US patriots will put the government in check. They will have to bring our boys back to the US just to control the "population" sons returning from war and told to shoot their fathers and uncles and brothers.......
So bring it on NWO, bring it on money bags wall street, make the draft happen and you will see the dawn of a new day, OUR DAY !
Forget about the local PD when you have the general population joining with all the gang bangers as a compromise the PD will be powerless to enforce anything after the first few incidents when their precincts buildings are swarmed by 100,000 or more armed "vandals" when police cars are destroyed on site wherever encountered, you think with as bankrupt our country is currently in that local governments will be able to get new cop cars quickly ???? They will drive new cars off the lots, angering local business owners who might have been on the fence. The local militia will be their own police free of the "fed".
It will be far more dangerous then being an Iraqi Policeman in Iraq who has the US Military behind them for support.
Local PD will walk in droves joining the Militias of the Revolution of the United States Freeman.
Victory in Numbers, for the past has come alive again, the spirits of Jefferson, Adams, Hamilton, Washington have been reborn anew.
Well, some of those ideas that you put forth that guys can do to get out of the service once they are in are a bit shaky. Sure, you'll probably get discharged, but before that happens, I have two words for you:
