Will it pass? Probably not. :(

Will it affect me? No...solly cholly, been there, done that, too old now. :cry:

Will we see busted-up middle aged men doing front-line service? Maybe a few Uber-Jocks and Muscle-Mutts, but I don't see Uncle Sam passing out Aleve & Prevacid for combat troops. Viagra, maybe...:lol:

How about druggies with their fingers on the Doomsday button? Methinks it took druggies to invent such a concept, so: No change. :shock:

Does the prospect bother me? Nope, sorry. While the number of possible exemptions from general service will be less than those for military service, there will still be exemptions; given that non-military service options are included, think of it as getting a 'fat Government job' handed to you on a silver platter. 8-)
