«There Goes My Cop-out»

Let me first say that I disagree with and condemn the Selective Service System. I only registered when I turned 18 because I was extorted by the government; by law I had to. I thought there was a law that says anything signed while under coercion or intimidation is not lawful. I guess the government is exempt when they're the ones doing the coercion.

Anyway, I was forced to register for the Selective Service. However, if it came down to it and they reinstated the draft, I'll do whatever I can to get out of it.

I can't really claim it's against my religion, since I don't have one. Even the draft wouldn't make me fake believing in a religion. However, I would consider claiming I'm homosexual (or at least bisexual) due to the military's Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy.

Thanks to Obama's recent vow, that may no longer be an option. Obama promised to end the Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy.

Ok, that's a good thing. It's another step towards equal rights and diminishing the blatant discrimination against sexual orientations other than heterosexuality. Good for Obama (if he follows through).

I'll just have to find some other way to dodge the draft if it is reinstated. Maybe I could at least get a non-combat listing due to my bad left eye and thus bad depth-perception. Problem is, I hate the military mentality. I'm afraid I wouldn't blindly follow orders without understanding them or seeing a point for it. Maybe I'll just skip the country or go to a federal prison instead...

Let's just hope it doesn't come to that.


  1. By the time a situation requiring a draft comes around again, the conservatives will probably opt out too. If it is gay culture vs. the Taliban, do we have a stake in the outcome?

  2. LOL@"gay culture".
    Let me guess: Looney doesn't actually know any gay people?

  3. @ Nathaniel: Wouldn't surprise me.

  4. Nathaniel, this is the San Francisco suburbs here. We get it unfiltered.

  5. @ Looney: And you understand that the majority of gays are not overly flamboyant, right?

  6. I didn't associate flamboyant with gay culture.


Thanks for taking the time to comment.
