Hmm... Yeah, we've been experimenting a little here at JD this past month, by permitting some of these borderline political threads to stay open for a little while just to see how it goes. While I think they've been fairly tame compared to "elsewhere", they are still teetering on the edge of getting a little too heated for our liking.
I'm not a very political fella myself, but it pains me to read the news every day and see more of our boys (and a few gals) out in Iraq being killed, and I really wish we could bring them home, out of harms way. But at the same time, I understand that we're trying to "stay the course" for a little longer in hopes of Iraq getting things up and running somewhat smoothly on their own.
As for the potential of a draft, I just can't see something like that ever happening here again. I'd be really
surprised if it ever did, and I'm sure it would cause all hell to break loose all over the country if one was actually implemented. I wouldn't be too concerned about it though...
With that, I'll concur with Nick, Rob, and Jess, and just go ahead and close this one before it gets too exciting. I think most everyone has stated their case that wants to, so it'll probably all just be useless debating/arguing from here on out. If anyone desperately wants it back open, feel free to PM anyone on the staff and we can discuss it.
Thanks for understanding folks.
