Special Skills Draft

The selective service board is preparing for a "special skills draft", ie. language and computer experts.

Like hell I'm getting my ass drafted for a bullshit, meaningless, useless war. I'm not anti-war in general, but in specific. And I don't see any worthwhile ones on the horizon.
  • Having my time behind me I can tell them to stuff it if they call me up... Once you are done, including with your inactive reserve commitment, they can't call you up and I seriously doubt they would get that changed succesfully- people have already filled out 8 years of service voluntarily shouldn't be drafted, simple as that.

    though I still plan on getting into the Guard when my medical stuff is done... Its a tradeoff. Ensuring we have motivated, skilled people who actually want to be there for wars I agree with, balanced against having to fight wars I don't agree with.
  • they're drafting you for the war on drugs, man.
  • Ugh.
  • Slavery anyone?

    Am I the only one who finds it disturbing that they're even devising new systems by which they can draft people to fill open positions (including health care)? In the future, will baby boomer scumbags be living on the backs of their grandchildren in a master/slave relationship? Wasn't the voluntary nature of work one of the perks of capitalism?
