    According to 'S 89'..."To provide for the common defense by requiring that all young persons in the United States, including women, perform a period of military service or a period of civilian service in furtherance of the national defense and homeland security, and for other purposes."

    the address is a student's personal webpage at the University of Pittsburgh. but i've seen it on other websites that are pretty much against Bush and the war. who knows if its actually true or not.

    Actually the bill proposes an ammendment to selective services which would change men to men and women and require everyone including women to register.

    Im not sure how lagit this is, you also have to keep in mind that a lot of bills get introduced and never get signed into law ... if your concerned, talk to your representatives.

    Whether or not it gets signed into law -- only time will tell. But it is a real bill being considered in congress.

    Need proof, go to www.congress.gov and in the "bill number" search box type "s89".

    There ya have it, and with all the longstanding war on terrorism being planned it wouldn't suprise me any if this gets passed. Im not looking forward to it, but looks all too much like history repeating itself. Like i've said before, if you dont like it write your representatives.

    Go to www.senate.gov by typing it into your browser. Click on the "Legislation and Records" link. Tell me if that Web site URL isn't exactly what you put above...

    Note the date of the S89 is January 2003. More than a year old, which means it isn't going anywhere. Some of the draft talk is from Rep. Charles Rangel, the nitwit from New York who thinks there aren't enough upper class kids in the military. And lately Chuck Hagel, Senator from Nebraska, has mentioned the possible need for a draft if the military comes up short. Remember, it's an election year and lots of gas gets passed.

    It is liberal propaganda. nothing more. In order for a draft to be reinstated it would have to pass the house, the senate, and the president. The media would be all over it and those who supported it would not be re-elected.
    Get informed people.

    in effect, you saying that its liberal propaganda is making your posts conservative propaganda against liberal media

    why dont we all agree that the article has no standings because it was made by some college student worried about handing in his paper on time?
