The only racists are those in the GOP and Libertarian Party who fight to honor a regime whose goals were to uphold white supremacists and oppress blacks.
Fuck off.

Um...what is this about, and whom was it intended for? Because I have no idea who you are.

You're also wrong, since no such set of parameters and people exists.  But obviously, deductive reasoning is not your strong suit.

If it was intended at me, I note that you're anti-immigrant, but that's a common issue I deal with from "liberals."

~~~

Let's deconstruct his utter ignorance here:

Republicans and Libertarians are not the same group.  They're vastly different groups. Anyone lumping them together has to be so far from the mainstream that their only discernment is "us" and "them."

The US has never had a "Regime."

No one is "fighting" to "Honor" said regime, even using the loosest definition of same.

I think he may vaguely be referencing the Confederacy (Not a "Regime"), which is long gone, and was run very much by elitist democrats, who can be typified by Mike Bloomberg (D--Wall Street), who believes poor people should have their lives controlled because they're too stupid to manage them themselves, and by Demorrhoids who insist that voter ID is racist because blacks are too stupid to get ID (which almost everyone of every demographic already has, and by omitting the poverty-stricken whites, Hispanics, Asians, and Native Americans make it clear they think ONLY blacks have this problem, thus demonstrating exactly the point that THEY are the racists).

If so, the LP would have nothing to do with the Confederacy due to slavery, et al.  And I've never once heard a Republican insist we need to bring back slavery. But damned if the Demorrhoids don't do everything they can to have an impoverished underclass they can order around, especially if they can keep them without immigration papers and working for a pittance (See: Much of the Hollywood elite and scads of politicians).

So all I'm getting is that this guy is ignorant and angry that his own side's racism and elitism are so blatant.  But rather than try to fix them, he wants to project them onto normal people.

Bill's Politipalooza

Yesterday at 10:30 AM · 

There are very legitimate arguments against Medicare for All. I am against M4A and am very happy to explain why. However, new government expenses and taxes aren't really among the reasons. It's super hard to see a cancer patient holding a 6-figure bill and then complain about my taxes going up. It's super hard to see the $trillions spent on needless war and then complain about new government spending on its citizens. Lastly, when neither party gives a damn about debt and deficit, I simply cannot talk about the expense of M4A with a straight face. Fiscal sustainability is problematic with M4A, but it is a weak argument for most Americans given the current reality. I believe there are solutions far better than M4A, but let's debate them and stop thinking its a mic-drop moment when you ask to see the price tag. It's not!

~~~

Sure it is. I can hand you a million dollar bill for a dying kid every ten seconds. If you care about these people, you'll pay it, right?

Every person starts with a responsibility to themselves, their immediate family and friends, then their neighborhood, community, politic, and species in that order.

If you place the charity of random strangers above your own immediate circle, you are generous, but also a drain on on your own resources, and you will run out of them in short order.

Not every problem in the world is your problem or my problem. That is a harsh reality.

Is it reasonable to support your immediate circles? Yes, because you will gain similar benefit in response. Is it reasonable to offer some limited support further out, as available? Absolutely. Should you starve your own family to do so? Well, you can, but I won't.

Literally anyone can write a check to the Dept of Health and Human Services, or any other gov't agency, and it will be cashed. Demands for legislative force mean those people want SOMEONE ELSE to be made to donate, not themselves. You can find plenty of news stories about it, too. "I didn't think _my_ taxes would go up!" They voted for SOMEONE ELSE to get screwed out of resources.

If you go to the bank and say, "I need a loan for a new roof," you'll probably get it. The infrastructure helps your family and its economics. If you say, "I need to borrow $10,000 to give to some kid with cancer in Kansas," they're going to refuse, and they should. Taxes, especially deficits, should be going for critical societal needs such as infrastructure and defense. Charity is a luxury a wealthy nation can afford to a certain degree. The nation that mandates it as a non-discretionary entitlement, while considering infrastructure and defense to be discretionary, is on the slope to destruction.

Then there's the reality that the same government that spends $500 on hammers, denies painkillers to cancer patients, and negligently exposed at least 6000 veterans to HIV shouldn't be making ANY health care decisions.

 

 This isn't even offensive to or about anything.  It's a pun. Which, granted, should be punished, but not by banning.

The furthest back anyone got me was a for a three year old comment, but I've seen bans for 4 and 6 year old content.

Can everyone with a brain agree:

Past a month, the worst that should happen is the post is removed.

If it's not an actual threat, actual porn vs nudity, it should stand.

That while Nazis, Communists, Fascists and other left wingers are subhuman shit, they retain the same right to free speech as human beings.

That mocking them, or any other group, is not actually harmful in any way, and is the whole point of that concept of freedom of expression.

And that if some pathetic pussy little gamma bitch is offended and whines, they should simply be blocked from the account in question, so they won't be offended anymore. (This is what happens at www.MeWe.com if you report something.)

Does anyone think the above is not reasonable?

And yet, if someone were to explain that to the Cockzucker, using a ball bat until his cranial intestines leaked onto the sidewalk, rather than the public benefactor they actually would be, they'd be considered a criminal.

And thus, western civilization is doomed by "tolerant" "liberals" who can tolerate anything except dissent or humor.

Over here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/834976033333570/permalink/1511454445685722/

"Conservatives are still outraged over a same-sex kiss."

No, not really, liberal boy. Few of them ever were.

Either the character, having the memories of all previous hosts, is completely bisexual and relaxed about it. Or there's some hormonal/chemical factor in the host that makes them monosexual. Either way it should have been a nonissue as of the 3rd episode. It was you liberals who milked it for ad dollars.

DS9 did not start becoming anything even remotely approximating Good until the staff writers looked at the path Joe Straczynski was blazing, and said: "Hey -- Star Trek has never tried Actual Continuity before; let's give it a shot."  Until then, all the show was known for was having a species whose defining features were "short; big ears; crooked teeth; odd headgear; obsessed with money", in accordance with The Protocols Of The Elders Of Science Fiction...

You beat us about the head with every "marginalized" group, in a universe where allegedly these things don't matter.

This is yet another reason why "liberals" should refrain from science fiction.  They really can't envision a universe outside their narrow little shell of hatred and prejudice.

You may have noticed I've not been on Fecesbook for a while.  Let me explain...no, let me SHOW you why:

So um, mocking the Nazis and the Stalinists as murderous regimes, which they provably were, is "Hate speech."

Posting a link to an article about an uncontacted tribe is "nudity."

Posting links to a very serious publication like "Nature," or making a political comment is "Spam." And in the second example, they didn't even tell me what I'd posted that was alleged to be "Spam."

Note that the "spam" is still "pending review" nine months later.  This is why I have multiple backup accounts. Yes, that's against their rules.  They can fuck themselves with their rules. This has happened over 100 times, and I've lost count.

I can't share the article of a legal foundation because they claim it's "controversial" to oppose the government.  Gee, it's almost as if they have a political axe to grind.

Since I can't even post news links about certain subjects:

I can't even guess what this one is about.

My wife, an IT security professional, notes that she stops getting notifications about my posts about 24 hours before these things happen.

I have several stalkers, and at least one of them works for Fecesbook in an administrative capacity. They've even blocked me from asking for review:

And sometimes I don't even get told what I'm being banned for:

And in messages, quoting Bill Clinton verbatim is "Harmful content."

So they win.  I can't appeal to their rules, which change constantly anyway, and which they are manipulating against me.  Don't waste time suggesting a lawyer--the Cockzucker only responds to court orders from CA courts, which I can't afford. Even though someone or a group of someone's is obsessive enough about me to sift back through comments I made literally three years ago to ban me. http://www.michaelzwilliamson.com/blog/index.php?itemid=369 

When I had a Twitter account, similar things happened there.  I may have a screenshot back in the archive, but what's the point?

You may recall multiple Wikipoo editors all "Spontaneously" and simultaneously decided to speedy delete my page as "not notable," despite 2 genre and 9 national bestsellers, and several awards and noms, plus GoH appearances. They also went after Tom Kratman, Brad Torgersen, Sarah Hoyt, were trying to pull down bits of John Ringo's background, probably with the intent of claiming a multiple NYT bestseller is not notable, and even in discussion claimed that "Baen is basically a vanity publisher."

It would be ridiculous to believe there's any sort of conspiracy going on here.  Not at all. But the pile of coincidences makes presence on several platforms very inconvenient.

There's an irony that the Cockzucker is quoted here https://www.wired.com/story/facebook-mark-zuckerberg-lost-notebook/ as saying: “Would you want every joke that you made to someone being printed and taken out of context later?” and “Beware of he who would deny you access to information, for in his heart he dreams himself your master.”

Well done, Cockzucker!  You said the right things.  You never intended to abide by them, but you did say them.

Moving forward, the only things I'll post on Fecesbook will be publication updates and stuff for sale. There's no point wasting time on anything else that will be used to harass me further.

However, if you follow me over to www.mewe.com you'll get first updates and dibs on my projects, and as a bonus, I can post all the unmutual humor I never even bothered to risk on Fecesbook, knowing the Butthurt Little Bitch Brigade would wet their panties.

In the aftermath of the non-issue in Virginia, I have a few notes.

Before we get started, even the actual left media agrees with me that "liberals" are racist: https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2018/08/white-liberal-racism-why-progressives-are-unable-to-see-their-own-bigotry.html 

https://www.huffpost.com/entry/10-ways-white-liberals-pe_b_8068136 

~~

First, VCDL does this every year. If you don't know who they are, or that this is an annual event, you're not qualified to hold an opinion. It's a (sort of slightly) free country, so you can express your opinion, but anyone educated should laugh at you.

Here's some examples of the idiocy I found where idiots hang out, meaning Twitter, but also a bit on Farcebook.

"Most of the protesters are white!"  Most of Virginia's population is white. But go ahead and ignore the many black, Chinese-American, Hispanic, and other patriots who where there. I guess they're only "marginalized" when they're on your side, otherwise, they don't exist.  If you're racist, that is.

"They're all racists!"  Hey, you're the people who elected Governor Blackface Whitehood, and are having extra state police work on MLK day, AND requiring city and county police to do so, too.  But everyone else are racist? Cool story, bro! I hope you're convincing yourself.

"GOA is just a group for white gun nuts."  So you're completely ignoring their communication director, Antonia Okafor. https://gunowners.org/antonia-okafor/ 

Well, okay, racist.

Oh, here's some more: 

 

 

There are thousands more, if you care to look, and don't MARGINALIZE them.

"Haha! These gun nuts are mostly fat and ugly!" Fatshaming and Lookshaming. Very liberal. Also, body armor literally adds 35 lbs, plus bulk for cold weather clothing.

"Why aren't they at work?"  It's a holiday. Lots of them have it off, or took a day off. Did you forget it was Dr Martin Luther King, Jr Day?  If so, it's probably because you're a racist.

"Hey, it's illegal to wear a mask!"  They're wearing the same masks the police wearing, because it is cold. Somehow, you never complain about this when it's your terrorist Antifag buddies doing it.

"Wow, they're wearing military clothing!" Actually, in that picture, those are Carhart coveralls used in cold weather by people who actually work for a living, including city workers, construction workers, and line workers. You know: All the working class people you elitist liberal cocksuckers like to pretend don't exist, or if you acknowledge they do, that they're stupid because they don't have a degree in Agenda Studies.

"The police weren't taking them down like they do other groups!"  Gee, it's almost as if being armed causes the government to take you more seriously and its agents to be reluctant to get force turned on them. And of course, they were completely peaceful. If only we could make that work for, I don't know, MARGINALIZED COMMUNITIES.  It worked for Malcolm X.

"March to the nearest recruitment center." A huge number of them are vets. Also, nice endorsement of the military industrial complex and police state. Sieg Heil, you fucking Nazi.

"There were very few police present. Because they're white." Actually, there were THOUSANDS of police present, but since these were decent human beings, not the sort of subhuman shit who beat people with bike locks, throw milkshakes at them like 1950s racists, set things on fire, or attack cops, the police didn't need to do anything. Once again you're proving the point:  The very diverse group you insist is only "white males" is a largely peaceful group. For now.

"Haha! These people aren't scary at all!" Thanks for admitting it. So why do you want to restrict their rights and piss them off?

"All this over background checks!"  That is about the most monstrous lie possible, and this is going to take a bit:

Let's start with non-gun laws, since that might actually affect a liberal pinbrain: They're proposing that recall require 25% of ELIGIBLE VOTERS on a petition. Not actual voters or even registered. So, more people than ever actually vote for a candidate.

They're proposing an 8 year term for their pet governor.

They're proposing the same racist bullshit that "black people don't know how to get voter ID"--the same ID everyone uses to drive, buy smokes, and buy beer, so they can pack more illegal votes in. There's literally no reason to oppose voter ID, as is used in every civilized nation, unless you're a racist trying to pack an election...for that 8 year governor. (And keep in mind, at some point, a Republican might become governor, and then the problem is the other way.  Of course, expecting "liberals" to even comprehend what a second order effect is, much less predict them, is like expecting a pig to grasp calculus.)

The governor was able to claim "social media comments" as a "public emergency," and declare 14 acres of empty public ground an "emergency shelter" where no weapons were allowed.  The courts refused to stop this.  At this point he can literally declare the entire state such.

There's a bill that calling a public employee and obscene name would constitute a "threat." So if you inform Governor Blackface Whitehood of the fact that he's a cocksucking Nazi piece of shit, you'd go to jail.  Hey, Demorrhoids prove they want the First Amendment gone, too.  Awkward. Except, of course, there has NEVER been a Demorrhoid who supported free speech. They want free speech for THEM, but not for anyone who might disagree with their Nazi ideology. (Yes, if you belong to the Democratic Party, you ARE a fucking Nazi, and you ARE a fucking racist piece of shit.)(And almost certainly Anti-Semitic, too.) (I've proven this before: http://www.michaelzwilliamson.com/blog/index.php?itemid=489 http://www.michaelzwilliamson.com/blog/index.php?itemid=473 )

And see the opening note.

Nevermind "background checks," they proposed banning several categories of firearms, which does in fact constitute, "Taking the guns," and massive restrictions on a right, and have already cancelled their recognition of 25 states' reciprocal licenses to carry. What those states should do is cancel recognition of VA driver and marriage licenses.

Possibly the scariest is a "voluntary" list to be a non-gun person, which if you violate, constitutes a crime.  If you don't want a gun, just don't buy a fucking gun.  Why sign up to make yourself a criminal?  To address this, we need to consider what "voluntary" means.  It means a lot like "elective" abortion.  In most cases, you can "elect" to abort, or either die in childbirth or give birth to a poor creature that dies in agony.

You'll "volunteer" to be a non-gun owner who can be charged as a criminal if you do when your employer, or their insurer, tells you it's a condition of employment to "reduce workplace violence." (It won't. If you believe it will, you're fucking stupid. And don't bother arguing, I know more about this subject than you do.)  You can  "Volunteer" to not own guns or volunteer to starve.  Or when the divorce judge tells you custody depends on "volunteering" for this list. Or the traffic court.  Or the school you wish to attend.

Then they'll trumpet that X% or X number of Virginians "voluntarily" don't own guns, as if that matters for the practice of a right. (How many of you have ever actually written a letter to your Congressleech? Does that mean free speech doesn't exist?) They'll use that for marketing elsewhere.

Also, the bill would make it a crime to let someone on the list handle weapons.  So this will be used to harass and arrest honest people who get entrapped.

A bill that would require ANYONE selling guns or ammo to ensure EVERY employee can pass a background check. Now, this sounds reasonable, but is in fact already federal law...for people who actually transact firearms.  But what this would mean is that WalMart couldn't just designate five people in Sporting Goods as the FFL section, cleared by ATF, as they do now. Literally EVERY FUCKING EMPLOYEE down to the night janitor would have to pass a background check.  Which of course means the store will stop selling guns. Which of course means inexpensive guns will be less available to minorities and marginalized communities at risk of violence.

Note that last:  Literally EVERYTHING the Demorrhoids push for is a long game to get back the slaves we forcibly made them give up in the Civil War. They want minorities poor, helpless, and dependent on the government. Any minority who forgets their place is scorned as an "Uncle Tom" or "Sellout" or even "House ni__r."  Such tolerant, peaceful people Demorrhoids are.

So, yeah, go ahead with your racism, lies, and hatred about everyone involved in a peaceful protest.

But, since we know you're the fucking Nazis now, expect to get treated like fucking Nazis next time. Hopefully the guillotine won't be in effigy: 

"They didn't actually start any violence, so we win!"  Noted for next time. We'll bring live ammo.

"Better luck next time!"  Oh, don't worry, cockbag. Next time, we won't make that "peaceful" mistake again.

You are the racists, you are the liars, and we know who you are.

~~~

But let's be honest:

The ballot box failed. The soap box is irrelevant when the left controls the media. The courts have said pretty much any gun control is A-OK, and SCOTUS has refused to hear the appeals.

And a bunch of guncucks paraded around and did nothing after the Delegates proposed stealing their property and installing themselves for life.

It’s been time for the Ammo Box since the 18th Amendment. We need to just admit that 95% of gun owners are pussies, and the 5% who might start something know the 95% would go Full Virtue Signal, and turn them in while shrieking, “They’re not law abiding gun owners!” The number of cucks online insisting, "Well, why don't you start it?"  Even if I could, what would be the point? You'd play their game.

The building was empty. You could have stormed the building, set up shop peacefully, and had the crowd outside bring you pizza and beer, and still been there, forcing the Nazis to hold their legislative session in a conference hall, humiliated before the world.

You could have separated the barricades from inside or out, and put 20,000 people inside the barricades, no violence, just civil disobedience the way Ghandi intended. Go where they say you can't. Say what they prohibit.

Hell, if the badly outnumbered cops looked itchy, you could have made it very clear they were being disarmed for their own safety and sent home.

Nope, you paraded around and did nothing, told everyone how peaceful you were, not like the fascists at Antifa, and made it clear you'll politely line up for the box cars when it's time.

NEWSFLASH: Antifa has gotten city, county, and state governments to accept their actions and intentions, ban conservatives, refuse to arrest their agitators, and even refuse to prosecute their criminals who have beaten or shot at people.

And you...proved you'll do nothing. So yet more restrictive bills were proposed this week in VA and almost every other state.

But NEXT TIME for SURE!

There won’t be a revolution. They’ll take your guns. You’ll suck the Nazi cock. You’ll swear you love it.

I fucking despise you, too.

Just caught a bunch of pages and videos on this.

https://amzn.to/36SYrv9

 

You can buy these from me, too, but Amazon carries them at the same price.

Here's the idiot myth on every single page:

"The back isn't a good saw."

"The primary use of that knife, the reason it was designed, was as a general purpose escape tool from the wreckage of an aircraft. You could punch a hole in the fairly thin skin of the craft and saw your way out. It’s a fairly specialised knife that can work as a field knife but it’s not the best choice for a general purpose knife."

No, it fucking isn't.  If the plane is that fucked up, you're not getting out. That's a load of bullshit up there with the myth of, "You can't legally use a .50 cal against troops, but you can use it to shoot their web gear," and "Mattel made M-16s." The knife is stowed in a kit under the seat. You're not getting it out in time to do any cutting. If it's a fighter, you're ejecting. If it's a cargo/transport/bomber, there's a half dozen different ways out of the plane-every hatch, ramp, window, port and door is an egress.

"Hey, the guys need a tool to cut through the fuselage."

"How about a metal shear and a springloaded punch?"

"I guess, but I was thinking of giving them a knife."

"A knife?"

"Yeah, to punch a hole in the plane and saw their way out."

"Like you'd do with a spring-loaded punch and a metal shear?"

"Yeah, but a knife!"

No one is going to cut their way out, and 7075T6 aluminum is rather tougher than you think it is--they use it for M-16 receivers.
 
The saw isn't a very good saw, but it's a combinaton file/rasp (and not a very good one, but better than not having one).  It's for shaping wood, cutting rope, abrading roots, whatever you might need a non-slicing edge for. The knife is used for everything you use a knife for on the ground. You know: Camping and surviving while waiting for Pararescue to recover your butt.

I'm waiting for someone to insist what it really needs is a launchable spring loaded blade "like the Spetznaz used" as a "last ditch weapon."

And the CQC6 "Quartermaster" knife wasn't used for "prying open crates and hammering the lids," either. As dumb as the Army can sometimes be, they DO know what hammers and prybars are.
 
Jesus Christ, you people are stupid.

I just acquired a wall thickness gauge to assist with my addiction to classic shotguns.  Before you shoot something a hundred years old (or even fifty), you want to ensure it met proof, hasn't been reamed, compare chamber specs to the proof marks, if any, determine chamber length, load, and wall thickness. For example, 12 gauge shotguns might be spec'ed for anything from 2" all the way to 3.75" long shells, and while the longer chambers can take the shorter shells, the inverse is most definitely not true. Then, have the barrels been filed and refinished?  The bore polished?

And given the investment some of these represent--we're talking guns that come in their own custom fitted luggage with their own monogrammed accessories, and a label that notes the maker was "By Appointment to Her Majesty" (Queen Victoria) and about a dozen princes and dukes, you damned sure either pay someone to check the gun over for you, or get the tools to do it.  So I dropped $600 without thinking twice.

I had some problems learning to calibrate it, because I was way overthinking things. A call to the manufacturer cleared that up, and I was good to go.

What you need to know is that shotguns have most of their propellant impulse inside the chamber, and don't need barrels as heavy as rifles do.  So the recommended minimum wall thickness for a shotgun is .020".  Below that you really shouldn't shoot it, and should consider replacement of the barrels, having them relined, or sleeved.

The conversation with the guns went like this:

Stoeger, Brazil: I am a tactical shotgun! .020" doesn't allow for extra heavy loads or crashing through doors.  .035" is much better.

Williams and Powell, Liverpool: These barrels were replaced in 1954 after 70 years of honorable service. The new ordnance steel barrels are proofed at 3 tons pressure and have a minimum thickness of .028".

Luciano Rota, Italy: Pfah.  Leeway is good.  .030" will remain reliable, and it's easy enough for anyone with muscle.

Westley Richards, London:  I am 141 years old, and after being refinished, my double twist Persian damascus bores are right at .027, with one eroded ring at .020." I am a fine gentleman's gun and have the balance to show for it. Not to mention better lines than you'll find in most Soho nightclubs. They will probably still proof for nitro as well. (Leans back in chair and puffs fine cigar with sherry.)

Robert Faller, Freiburg: (Drags off cigarette.) Ze English are wimps! A gun is a tool for MENSCHEN!  There's that one thin spot from wear, down around .028", but otherwise these tubes are .035" to take hunting loads worthy of the Black Forest.



Mortimer, Edinburgh:  (Sips single malt.) Damned right they are. Old school percussion guns with laminated barrels are .040", in case the whisky causes you to lose track of the charge.

W&C Scott & Sons, Birmingham: (Leans back on cane.) You kids are all wankers.  Not only am I 10 gauge and laminated, I'm walled at .045". Do you want to dance? Or do you want to bloody shoot? 

Henri Pieper, Liege: (Pulls out pipe, blows huge cloud of smoke.)  Va te faire foutre! I am a professional and there are no chances here!  Three bar twist laminate barrels.  Walls are .050" up to .070" and threaded into a solid steel monobloc, which I patented. You have improved the pressure curve of your modern propellants, you say?  DO YOUR WORST! Phallicly stuff your nitrocellulose shells into my 137 year old chambers, and pull the trigger.  PULL THE TRIGGER! Pull it, ta chatte! BE A MAN!



So, yeah, some of these old guns are fucking tanks. The myth that you can't possibly shoot old guns at all, and if you can, you have to use half loads, is BS.

The inability of the internet generations to use 10 seconds of their search engine of choice is pretty pathetic.
 
From Wikipee, who's rarely unbiased, but in this case managed some basic facts (Infogalactic is better):
 
Under current law, all male U.S. citizens between 18–25 (inclusive) years of age are required to register within 30 days of their 18th birthday. In addition, certain categories of non-US citizen men between 18–25 living in the United States must register, particularly permanent residents, refugees, asylum seekers, and illegal immigrants.[2]
~~
The illegals better run. I need popcorn for the Demorrhoid reaction.
~~
 
In February 2019, the male-only military draft registry was ruled to be unconstitutional by a federal district judge in National Coalition for Men v. Selective Service System.[52] Following the ruling, the Selective Service's Legislative Liaison Jacob Daniels told reporters: "Things continue here at Selective Service as they have in the past, which is men between the ages of 18 and 25 are required to register with Selective Service. And at this time, until we receive guidance from either the court or from Congress, women are not required to register for Selective Service."[53]
~~
That was your guidance from the court. At any point you attempt to implement, you'll be shut down.
~~~
The Selective Service System considers the term "male" in the federal law to refer to the sex observed at birth, so trans women are required to register, while trans men are not.[54]
~~
Yeah, I need popcorn for the GOP response now. And the Demorrhoid freakout that transfemales might actually have to be treated like males. Basically, neither side has any intellectual consistency on this.
~~
First draftees are inducted: According to current plans, Selective Service must deliver the first inductees to the military within 193 days from the onset of a crisis.[75]
~~
After the President asks, and a Congress determined to fight everything he does agrees (good luck with that). Though they might do it just to be able to blame him. Because The Demorrhoids excel at fucking their own people in the ass to make a point that didn't need made.
 
And then you have to train them to do something useful.  And make sure they're reliable and not going to sabotage anything, which even volunteer millennials have done to high profile (That little bitch Bradley Manning for example).
 
So, at least a year. 
 
There are zero foreseeable future conflicts in which that timeframe will ever be relevant, and it's much cheaper to offer bonuses than fight the lawsuits or convene the boards, especially when a bunch of recruits never actually make use of the benefits in the first place.

So I'm going to disagree with a friend on a board that Selective Service is "Alive and well."  It's a barely breathing, corpulent relic that serves no purpose and exists due to the bureaucracy's inability and unwillingness to ever euthanize a terminally ill patient.

And speaking as a retired vet--we don't want the pathetic kind of untermenschen who need to be ordered to backfill support roles we can fill with reservists, retirees, civil service, and contractors for cheaper per-slot costs.  And we sure as shit don't want you pretending to be line troops. If you could pass the physical training. Which most of you soibois cannot. So bleat on Twitter, drink your energy drinks, eat your junk food or "organic" bullshit, watch your Youtube, and play CoD.  And otherwise keep quiet. The men will handle this.

And let's look at the history of these protests:

Rescue run to Grenada: "ZOMG! DRAFT!"
Dig out a guy in Panama: "ZOMG! DRAFT!"
Several debacles in the Balkans, Africa and Caribbean under Bill Clinton: INFORMATIVE SILENCE.
Expedition to Kuwait: "ZOMG! DRAFT!"
Operations in Iraq: "ZOMG! DRAFT!"
Operations in Syria under 0bama: DEAFENING FUCKING SILENCE.
Angry tweet about NK. "ZOMG! DRAFT!"
Single fucking missile on a legit target. "ZOMG! DRAFT!"

It's a childish protest bleat.

EDIT: in response to that last:

In response to my snarking commentary on hemorrhoid pussies shrieking about a draft, 
some liberal shithead called
Rebecca Anne Smith said: I strongly doubt that pattern exists anywhere outside of Mr Williamson's memory and that of people equally effected by bias confirmation.
Me: I strongly doubt you have a clue what you're talking about.

Nixon ended Vietnam and the draft, but somehow gets blamed for the war started by Truman.

Carter reintroduced Selective Service. Now, which party was he?  Oh, right.

I moved to the US in 1978, and was SERVING IN THE US MILITARY from 1985-2010 and watched nearly every minor operation lead to Demorrhoid pussies shrieking about a draft.  Except from 1993-2000.  The Balkans never happened and we don't still have troops there (except it did and we do) and "Clinton ended that war and brought the troops home" except they're still there.  Mogadishu never happened.

From Bush down, officials say there'll be no draft--but makings are there WAR IN THE GULF

Charlie Wrangel re-introduced a draft in 2003, shrieked to the press that Congress was considering a draft and it was all Bush's fault. No one else supported it, and his grandstanding stunt died in committee.


"Sooner or later, the government will need a draft to fight a longer or larger-scale war, or to maintain a permanent occupation force in Afghanistan, Iraq,"
https://hasbrouck.org/draft/draftandwar.html (which also contains the liberal lie that the Mujahideen became al Qaida)

"Widespread fears of a new draft crash selective service system."

The earlier ones are not easily found online, but I remember plenty of people railing about them both in person (including a couple of my alleged "educators") and in the press.

So anyone thinking otherwise can take their OWN selection bias and fuck themselves with it.
