Good. I catch cold in drafty places.
I wonder when the lies will stop and truth begin, even as grim as the truth may be. And then I remember that for 70 years, the reign of terror in Russia called itself "the people's government." We have so far to fall, yet we are falling fast and Hell yawns to receive us.

I doubt it is going to happen.  It gets proposed all the time and goes no where.  Selective Service is in place for one reason, God forbid, should we ever need to build up an army as quickly as we did for WWII.

What they should do is require women to register as well.

Dunno AC. Call me old school, but I don't believe women should be drafted. Fighting is a man's game.

If it's numbers we're worried about, drop some of the silly standards that Recruiting Command has come up with and there would be plenty of warm bodies to fill the ranks. Tattoo's? No problem. No HS diploma? No problem, you don't need a diploma to shoot a rifle. Gang member? No problem, We'll make you a part of the biggest gang in the world, the US military or we'll break you trying. Non-violent offender? No problem, we take care of our problems.

Now, I imagine that your thinking of the asymmetrical warfare that we've been waging for the last 10 years where females have been in actual combat. That won't last forever. One day, we'll go head to head with a real army.  That will test our metal, and I don't want to see females in Armor/Infantry/Cavalry/Field Artillery units under those conditions.  Rear echelon, fine; but not in frontline units.

Fighting may be a game for men, but it's deadly serious for women; I, personally, would rather go up against a marine in full combat gear than up against my wife when she's ready for a fight.

I agree, but women always bitch and whine about "equality."  They used it to get on the front lines so make them truly equal and have them register for the draft.

If it is only about "equality" I guess it is yes, however, if it is about saving the Republic, that is not the time to find out that there is just some things women are not physically capable of doing.

Not sure the Republic [as we understand a Republic to be, and not a box store] can be saved. Not PC enough. Reminds me of a Jefferson Davis quote about the Confederacy's tombstone, "Died of a Theory".

I thought individuals were supposed to be judged as individuals, not as members of this class or that class?

They won't be truly equal until they can urinate over their shoulder while standing.  ^-^
