Best time to move to Norway or Denmark.
Haroush says2014-07-19T12:32:37.3282983-05:00
It's ironic many foreigners are more willing to serve our country, than our own people.. It's sad..
Stalin_Mario says2014-07-19T12:36:52.9704144-05:00
How do you know this? And why is it sad? Military draft for what war? Are we invading a country? Why? Or are we the ones being invaded. You have to make these questions more specific if you want the best results. Anyway, my answer is going to be the same in every scenario. My life and the people I love live's always come first before a nation or other people.
ArcTImes says2014-07-19T12:37:38.8508967-05:00
Real sad. What kind wrain bashing are they using?
Haroush says2014-07-19T13:06:16.2099222-05:00
How do I know this.. Perhaps I know from personal experience??.. Also, it is the nation which gives life to the people in it... It's not like a draft would be used to go round up Jews and send them to concentration camps.. It would be sad if this country were to ever fall, which it seems like it is on the way to falling.. Brainwashing seems like it is doing really well with those who believe in these false conspiracy theories easily.
Haroush says2014-07-19T13:17:07.9188087-05:00
Not everyone that gets drafted is would end up being a grunt either... It all depends on your ASVAB score..
Haroush says2014-07-19T13:19:37.9873407-05:00
Mishap, That is correct, the selective service doesn't draft women.
mishapqueen says2014-07-19T13:21:24.9159413-05:00
Yes, but military women are getting more popular, and the feminist want us girls to be treated exactly equally, so they may get their way.
ArcTImes says2014-07-19T13:28:07.3059351-05:00
Lol, that humans didn't go to the moon or that the 9/11 attack is an inside job are conspiracy theories. The fact that people are easily controlled by propaganda is not a conspiracy theory. Oh wait, you thought I was talking about this? Https://www.Youtube.Com/watch?V=Z91bg9BghaE Nope, I'm not talking about that lol.
SkepticalStardust says2014-07-19T14:38:44.5483515-05:00
Haroush, this message is for you. "The active-duty military currently contains more than 65,000 immigrants—5 percent of the force—"[1] "In 2011 there were 40.4 million foreign-born people residing in the United States"[2] 313.9 million people were living in the US as of 2012.[3] Let's do some math: We'll just round the 40.4 million foreign-born to 40 million and the 313.9 million currently in the us to 320 million. These rounds are both in favor of the point you're trying to make. 320mil - 40mil = 280mil. There are 280mil US-born in the US. 65k is 5% of the US military. That makes 1,300,000 US military members total. If you Google it, the number is a little higher. We'll make it 1,400,000, which is higher than the real number, to work in your favor. 1,330,000 is the number after we take out 5% to count only the US born. 1.33 million is 0.475% of 280 million. 0.475% of US-born citizens enlist in the US military. 65k is 0.1625% of 40 million. 0.1625% of foreign-born US citizens enlist. You can check the numbers here if you want to: http://www.percentagecalculator.net/ You might be thinking that some minorities are foreigners. Even if they were, 74.6 % of the US military is white.[4] The overwhelming majority of the US military is US born and a large majority of that is white. It's not just because there are more US born in the US either. A much higher percentage of US-born US citizens enlist than foreign-born US citizens. What are you talking about when you say "It's ironic many foreigners are more willing to serve our country, than our own people.. It's sad.."? You say personal experience is your reason. You're either misinformed, lying to yourself, or lying to us. I was in the USMC for 4 years and I also worked with the Navy and the Army during that time. I've had none of your "experiences." I don't believe you honestly believe what you've said. 1. http://www.americanprogress.org/issues/immigration/report/2013/11/08/79116/new-americans-in-our-nations-military/ 2. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Immigration_to_the_United_States 3. https://www.google.com/search?q=how+many+people+live+in+the+US&oq=how+many+people+live+in+the+US&aqs=chrome..69i57j0j5.4999j0j7&sourceid=chrome&es_sm=93&ie=UTF-8 4. http://www.statisticbrain.com/demographics-of-active-duty-u-s-military/

Skeptic you totally took my comment out of context..
ladiesman says2014-07-19T15:23:47.5234146-05:00
I would refuse to join.
ArcTImes says2014-07-19T15:27:52.1431660-05:00
It's funny that ladiesman has a wizard avatar.
thp078 says2014-07-19T15:55:05.5148142-05:00
Any country that would force its population to fight is not worth defending.
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-19T22:02:48.5875217-05:00
If you don't want to fight for your country, leave it. Simple. Don't suckle on the tit of it's benefits while bashing it. If you don't want to be here, there are millions of other people who do. I've been to places where calling out your government can get you killed. America allows you to be able to do that. If you don't want those freedoms America offers, stop accepting them and leave. I can assure you that you won't be missed.
SkepticalStardust says2014-07-19T22:27:39.4769921-05:00
Yama, not supporting war and not wanting freedoms are two different things. Anyway, most wars the US has fought haven't been for our freedom anyway. Fighting for other's freedoms is a different matter, but people certainly shouldn't be forced to do it.
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-19T22:31:01.1571389-05:00
Do you know what makes the world turn? Money and power. Going to war wins both of those things, in some cases. Either way, luxuries have a price. Consider it a raffle ticket. For every happy moment you have here, you have the chance of being called to serve.
Stalin_Mario says2014-07-19T22:42:28.6004903-05:00
Don't like people in your country not wanting to go to war? Then leave the country that they're in, And go find a country where everyone wants the go to war (Iran, North Korea, etc). Have fun.
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-19T22:44:09.2609855-05:00
Nah. I'll just take pleasure in seeing them complain and die.
labarum says2014-07-19T22:44:57.7024721-05:00
Anyone ever notice that the guys who refuse to defend their nation, are also the guys who never fix the problem.
Stalin_Mario says2014-07-19T22:46:06.1223860-05:00
Yama, and how would they die? Are you planning on finding everyone who refuses to fight in a pointless war and kill them? Lol.
Stalin_Mario says2014-07-19T22:47:28.1106500-05:00
Labarum, ever notice that the guys who want to defend their nation, are also the guys who are causing the problem.
labarum says2014-07-19T22:47:49.9837540-05:00
If a draft is required, then the war not likely to be pointless
labarum says2014-07-19T22:49:17.8587605-05:00
Or just the opposite. FDR didn't want to be involved in ww2, but when his nation was attacked, he didn't refuse to respond, he deployed immediately.
Stalin_Mario says2014-07-19T22:50:12.1010036-05:00
Wasn't there a draft for the Vietnam war? That war very pointless. Usually (not always, like you said sometimes they could be very important wars) drafts are created because not enough people want to fight.
labarum says2014-07-19T22:50:46.4482696-05:00
He did not refuse his nation, he served it until death. I did not agree with him politically, but I do respect his loyalty
Stalin_Mario says2014-07-19T22:51:27.2008478-05:00
World War 2, in my opinion, was the last war where soldiers of the United States actually fought for freedom for their own country.
labarum says2014-07-19T22:51:49.1036690-05:00
Vietnam was pointless for us ( not for the Vietnamese) but we also had a draft in ww2, which certainly was not pointless
Stalin_Mario says2014-07-19T22:52:43.5643163-05:00
Yes, I know. I did agree with you that some drafts are issued for important wars.
labarum says2014-07-19T22:53:05.4983381-05:00
What about when we overthrew the Taliban in Afghanistan whom we know were carrying out acts of terrorism against us and the rest of the western world
labarum says2014-07-19T22:53:46.4959265-05:00
But you said that you wouldn't join
labarum says2014-07-19T22:54:47.8831070-05:00
If say for example that Russia was invading the US and we were short on troops and had the potential of losing, would you not be willing to fight for your nation even if it were a draft to fend off occupation?
Stalin_Mario says2014-07-19T22:55:10.1756546-05:00
Most Vietnamese wanted to be communists. If we allowed them to vote, democratically, they would have become communists. Also us "helping" them caused them extreme amounts of death and suffering. Also after we left, a couple years later the South was overrun and the entire country became communist; so yes, that war was pointless for basically everyone.
labarum says2014-07-19T22:56:22.6393292-05:00
Except for the south, whom did chose democratically in 1959 to be a democratic nation. The north would go on to invade them.
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-19T22:56:40.1584661-05:00
No. I'll let them get weak and complacent. Then when war comes, I'll pleasure myself to their moans of suffering and mourning.
labarum says2014-07-19T22:56:57.2719952-05:00
I am not discussing Vietnam at the moment though
labarum says2014-07-19T22:57:37.5831704-05:00
Yama... What the hell is wrong with you!?
Stalin_Mario says2014-07-19T22:57:48.7373849-05:00
Well. We could have avoided the entire Afghanistan war, if we didn't supply the mujahiddin with weapons and billions of dollars. The Soviets would have been able to keep Afghanistan, install a strict secular government, and today we wouldn't even know who the Taliban were.
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-19T22:58:35.9906936-05:00
I'm an admitted sadist.
labarum says2014-07-19T22:59:13.8526217-05:00
How would Soviet rule been any better then Taliban rule. Instead of being oppressed in the name of Allah, you are being oppressed in the name of Communism.
Stalin_Mario says2014-07-19T22:59:29.9053304-05:00
If both the North and South, together, voted on what they wanted to be, then they would have been communist, as there were more people who were communists in the North, than there were people for democracy in the South.
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-19T23:00:39.9662777-05:00
The only answer to war is crushing every form of resistance. If you want peace, the best way to get it is by breaking your enemies so badly that they can't fight.
labarum says2014-07-19T23:00:46.8075745-05:00
But the south as we know was as a majority for a democratic government and therefore deserved there own state in which to rule.
labarum says2014-07-19T23:01:20.6374675-05:00
Yama, you are completely correct
labarum says2014-07-19T23:02:14.2076900-05:00
But you must be willing to forgive your enemies after the war, so as to avoid another Versailles
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-19T23:04:41.2873184-05:00
As I have said before, I truly want peace. Even if I have to create mountains of corpses, I want my family to have a good world to live in. If my enemies abuse my kindness of letting them live, I'd just remove them. No need punishing a nation for the crimes of a few.
labarum says2014-07-19T23:06:07.3066255-05:00
Would you like to be my war advisor when I am president?
Stalin_Mario says2014-07-19T23:07:13.7308687-05:00
If Russia invaded (which is impossible), first thing I would do would be to try and get myself and everyone I love to safety, then I would try to have us all move to a neutral first world country (or any neutral country that is considered "safe" aka not overrun with crime); however, if that fails (as I'm not able to leave) then I would eventually fight. However, I would only fight defensively, not on the front lines (though I doubt I would have a choice, as I don't make the calls); however, if I am surrounded by the enemy (knowing I will lose) then I would surrender (thankfully I know how to speak Russian) and maybe (only if I knew Russia was winning the war) I would join Russia, as a way to protect not only myself, but the people I love and care about. I have no allegiance to any flag, religion, or idea.
labarum says2014-07-19T23:09:54.5645176-05:00
Mario, If America falls, the entire free world falls. No where would be safe.
labarum says2014-07-19T23:10:40.0178962-05:00
And I am not so willing as you to give up my ideals and identity in exchange for my life.
labarum says2014-07-19T23:11:13.7767290-05:00
I would die for what I believe in
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-19T23:12:10.3118538-05:00
I'll kill for the heck of it... And money... And what I believe in.
labarum says2014-07-19T23:13:21.6665255-05:00
Well the pay will be good, I'm not quite sure what you believe in but I can take a guess.
labarum says2014-07-19T23:13:38.5153846-05:00
You in?
Stalin_Mario says2014-07-19T23:13:47.6878259-05:00
Afghanistan under Soviet rule was 100 times better than it was ruled under the Taliban. Under Soviet rule, women were given equal rights, land given to the peasants, education given to everyone, religions was removed from government. Sure Soviet rule was far from perfect, and was very oppressive, but it was not nearly as bad as the rule under the Taliban. Also, ask yourself this. Do you really think 9/11 would have happened if the Soviets (and later the communist government of Afghanistan (after the fall of the USSR)) ruled Afghanistan? No, I truly believe it wouldn't have happened. Actually, scratch that, I know it wouldn't have happened.
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-19T23:14:04.4741174-05:00
Why not.
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-19T23:18:31.7536886-05:00
Stalin, you in for some Crusading?
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-19T23:18:53.2161292-05:00
I mean Peacekeeping?
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-19T23:18:54.1089185-05:00
I mean Peacekeeping?
labarum says2014-07-19T23:19:46.8691331-05:00
Land in the soviet union was not owned by civilians ( I feel that peasant is a degrading word) but rather by the government. Land would have been stolen form the populace already owning land. Women would have been given equal rights as men... Too bad men didn't have to many rights in the soviet union either. Education would have been given to everyone, which is great. The Taliban was at least in effective in enforcing their rules on certain tribes, the soviets would not have that difficulty. 9/11 was perpetuated by al'qadea, not by the Taliban. 9/11 still would have happened. But the Taliban still did carry out a lot of other acts of terror.
Stalin_Mario says2014-07-19T23:20:01.6592756-05:00
Best way to beat your enemy, is to have them underestimate you. Show yourself as if you are weak and frail, but secretly you are a deadly killing machine. They attack you, filled with overconfidence, and then BOOM, you destroy them with ease, with no mercy. I'm sort of like that, I don't go looking for fights, and would run from most of them, but if someone gets to a point where I can't run and begging wont help (also begging helps you seem very weak, and gives your opponent great overconfidence), then I would destroy them as I am a fantastic fighter and have great speed and even strength (even though I don't look like it).
labarum says2014-07-19T23:22:13.0952267-05:00
That strategy was tried once by the viet cong. They were slaughtered. An estimated 500,000 deaths. The only reason why we pulled out was that we got tired of killing them.
Stalin_Mario says2014-07-19T23:23:50.3831658-05:00
I know al'qadea did cause 9/11, and most of the terrorists who where there in the front lines were from Saudi Arabia, but Taliban greatly helped al'qadea, in which without that help, 9/11 wouldn't have been possible (or at least as huge).
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-19T23:24:40.9052154-05:00
Let's kill 'em all and call it a day.
labarum says2014-07-19T23:24:48.1049178-05:00
Would not have been as bad but still would have happened
labarum says2014-07-19T23:25:43.0551827-05:00
Screw that, surround them while they sleep at night, and in the morning... Mass surrender. ( battle of Trenton)
labarum says2014-07-19T23:26:31.9885548-05:00
Wait how did we get this far off from the original subject? What are some cases that you would join a draft
Stalin_Mario says2014-07-19T23:26:50.3446926-05:00
No the United States pulled out because they were getting exhausted from the war, and no one was supporting them, not the South Vietnamese or the people in the United States.
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-19T23:27:07.6922514-05:00
All of 'em.
labarum says2014-07-19T23:28:08.5836711-05:00
Yeah, exhausted of slaughtering them
Stalin_Mario says2014-07-19T23:29:07.7155184-05:00
I was talking about that strategy more on everyday life, rather than military use.
labarum says2014-07-19T23:30:41.9881313-05:00
In what cases would you join a draft
Stalin_Mario says2014-07-19T23:32:48.0073547-05:00
If I had no other way to defend myself, or if I would be killed if I didn't join. But I would switch sides, if I knew the other side would win.
labarum says2014-07-19T23:34:21.6022217-05:00
Really? So if Nazi Germany was about to win ww2, you would switch sides?
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-19T23:34:55.7037771-05:00
Imagine if Pokemon existed. If we could use them as weapons. Beings capable of unlimited power! To rein fire from above, tremors from below und floods all around! Some can even kill with just a thought. Team Rocket already uses them to terrorize the populace... But they thought too small! We could hold the power to bend time and space! No.. The power to recreate our very reality! DEUS EX! The power of GOD! ... Pokemon.
labarum says2014-07-19T23:36:23.0886908-05:00
Okay, I might just have to have the CIA assassinate you for your power lust
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-19T23:36:36.5440549-05:00
If they pay me more money, sure. No one is going to lose a ground war with me though.
Stalin_Mario says2014-07-19T23:36:57.2065469-05:00
Better to live in Nazi Germany as a citizen (it wasn't that bad for everyone to be completely honest, well execpt for the people who were seen as unfit, but luckily I don't fit that label) then be killed or tortured.
labarum says2014-07-19T23:38:09.1941342-05:00
I would rather die free than live a slave
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-19T23:38:18.7474327-05:00
MY family were actually quite well off in Germany, until after ww1. The VonKarma name carried some weight. WW2 was actually pretty comfortable, from Berlin.
labarum says2014-07-19T23:38:42.7113758-05:00
You may have been unaffected in your personal life, but you would have been at the whims of the government
labarum says2014-07-19T23:39:24.0989717-05:00
Yeah until the Russians destroyed it
Stalin_Mario says2014-07-19T23:40:06.8905946-05:00
I would rather live, my need to know what happens in this world would be enough to keep me wanting to live, no matter what; unless I was psychically tortured with no hope of escape, then I would rather die.
labarum says2014-07-19T23:40:11.8982909-05:00
Life would have been okay if you were not an undesirable, but there would always be the distinct possibility
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-19T23:41:01.7412494-05:00
By the end, the branch family I'm part of had moved to America. The main house in Trier was leveled.
labarum says2014-07-19T23:41:18.5427725-05:00
Your an atheist aren't you Mario
Stalin_Mario says2014-07-19T23:42:27.3868964-05:00
Agnostic Atheist.
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-19T23:43:11.9320972-05:00
I don't have a power lust!
labarum says2014-07-19T23:43:53.1417455-05:00
Yama, you were having God delusions
labarum says2014-07-19T23:44:26.3465272-05:00
Do you know how I could tell you were an atheist?
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-19T23:44:29.9896541-05:00
Do you know what a Yama is? I am Deus!
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-19T23:45:09.1776077-05:00
He doesn't worship my awesomeness? That's a dead giveaway.
Stalin_Mario says2014-07-19T23:45:09.8091472-05:00
You read my profile, or you see that I am afraid to die.
labarum says2014-07-19T23:45:19.3490033-05:00
I have played that game, you have a massive power lust
Stalin_Mario says2014-07-19T23:46:06.8831174-05:00
I have a power lust? Or Yama?
labarum says2014-07-19T23:46:35.7373952-05:00
You are afraid to die. Say what you will about Christians, but you must admit, it is quite liberating to not fear death.
labarum says2014-07-19T23:46:54.2440592-05:00
Yama of course.
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-19T23:47:45.2931652-05:00
I want to meet god! I wanna slap him in the face with my glory.
labarum says2014-07-19T23:47:59.3300798-05:00
Yama, you were talking about altering reality and bringing the pokeapocolypse. Your power lust is almost as great as mine.
Stalin_Mario says2014-07-19T23:48:16.0129812-05:00
Yea, I guessed right then. Well the people who caused 9/11 didn't fear death. Not fearing death, in my opinion, is a bad thing.

The thought of meeting my gods comforts me. I can't wait to learn alongside them.
labarum says2014-07-19T23:49:42.6946180-05:00
Which is worse, living life as a coward and then dying in fear. Or living life happily and dying soundly.
labarum says2014-07-19T23:50:07.2844342-05:00
Yama, your pagan?
labarum says2014-07-19T23:50:59.2066570-05:00
Granted though, Christians do not through their lives away as easily as Muslims.
Stalin_Mario says2014-07-19T23:51:15.7534571-05:00
Living life as a happy coward, as you enjoy every moment knowing it could be your last, and then dying or living life thinking you are happy and then dying like and idiot.
Stalin_Mario says2014-07-19T23:51:45.6436319-05:00
*an idiot
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-19T23:52:08.2233211-05:00
I practice Shinto with Buddhism, and Hinduism mixed in.
labarum says2014-07-19T23:52:09.6836942-05:00
Dying like an idiot? You mean like breaking your neck on the trampoline
Stalin_Mario says2014-07-19T23:53:16.0401019-05:00
Dying like an idiot who has a smile on his face, who believes he was going to paradise.
labarum says2014-07-19T23:53:32.2307350-05:00
Could not the life style of a man whom fears death and tries to distract himself away from it lead to an even worse death?
labarum says2014-07-19T23:55:38.2909058-05:00
And why is that hard to believe? Because you cannot see it? People through out all time have seen this paradise, and we would have dismissed them, had it not been that they also saw things that no one else but a few have seen
labarum says2014-07-19T23:56:13.8907904-05:00
You know, like the Heaven is for real kid seeing things he could not have possibly seen
Stalin_Mario says2014-07-19T23:57:27.5509470-05:00
It all depends on the person, there are stupid atheists and there are smart atheists, same goes for Christians, some are complete morons and other are also smart, There are brave atheists and also cowardly atheists, same for Christians. You can't say things like "Which is worse, living life as a coward and then dying in fear. Or living life happily and dying soundly" as it is different for everyone. By the way, I said my versions hoping you could see why it didn't work, I purposely made them as biased as possible. Anyway, gotta go sleep. I'll see you tomorrow.
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-19T23:58:11.3142485-05:00
... My heaven will be filled with Meat, women, blood, suffering and Dr. Peper.
Stalin_Mario says2014-07-19T23:58:21.3169758-05:00
Those cases of kids seeing Heaven have been dismissed and explained scientifically, if they were real, they would have changed the world.
labarum says2014-07-19T23:59:11.9559873-05:00
How have they been dismissed?
labarum says2014-07-19T23:59:40.6436485-05:00
And Yama, yours sounds like the Muslim paradise
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-20T00:00:31.0337432-05:00
When the brain is close to death, it tries to save itself und comprehend the situation. The 'near death experiences' are just your brain trying to jump start.
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-20T00:01:14.7893768-05:00
It will also include my Dilara.
labarum says2014-07-20T00:02:31.6832555-05:00
No I mean people seeing things that they had NO way in seeing from heaven.
labarum says2014-07-20T00:03:29.2795631-05:00
Sorry body, already married Dilara
labarum says2014-07-20T00:03:53.5224293-05:00
She seems okay with my three other wives to
labarum says2014-07-20T00:04:13.2256082-05:00
Guess its just a Muslim thing
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-20T00:04:30.8851478-05:00
Being able to project yourself on the astral plain is a skill reachable through meditation. I can even do it in places within around 20 yards of me. IT's really just your hearing and other senses helping you get a full picture.
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-20T00:06:17.1329912-05:00
She's mine. You definitely don't wanna see a jealous Yama.
labarum says2014-07-20T00:06:51.9039616-05:00
Okay, so you are saying that it is more likely that all of these people reached peak meditation levels and were then transported into Buddha mode and saw all of this?
labarum says2014-07-20T00:07:31.5223758-05:00
I don't have to, all I see is Yama's profile picture.
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-20T00:07:50.5136644-05:00
With the brain trying to keep itself alive and dying at the same time, they'd have enough peace.
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-20T00:09:01.3999344-05:00
Pretty sure Stalin will have a better case. And what's wrong with my pic?
labarum says2014-07-20T00:10:08.7876458-05:00
I just can't see your jealous face.
labarum says2014-07-20T00:11:10.2996287-05:00
Some how, Buddha mode does not seem as likely as Heaven
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-20T00:13:59.0168732-05:00
Hmm... Drinks, food, and Dilara sound good right now.
labarum says2014-07-20T00:15:35.3431976-05:00
And What if I were to tell her I said that
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-20T00:16:27.9665136-05:00
She'd likely be scared. Not the partying type.
labarum says2014-07-20T00:16:42.4144154-05:00
You said that, my bad
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-20T00:17:11.1838806-05:00
No matter how different we are though, she keeps me human and I love her.
YamaVonKarma says2014-07-20T00:18:29.4012728-05:00
If she's okay with my bloodlust and splitness, I don't think anything could surprise her.
Stalin_Mario says2014-07-20T08:22:19.9519896-05:00
Yama is right, but in this case, the family clearly just made the whole thing up. They are obviously out to make some money (hence the book and movie they made). Even the story itself is flawed, they show the kid a picture of his grandfather, who the kid claims he saw in heaven, but the kid says his grandfather didn't look old but young. Okay, so now the logical thing to do would be to show him a picture of a young man (who isn't his grandfather) and see if he says it's him, but no, they show him his grandfather first in his young body, and of course the kid would say "yes that's him". Also many grandfathers look like their sons, so the kid would have said yes to any picture that looked like his dad. Maybe the next time this kid goes to heaven, he can ask Jesus to tell him somethings that he would have never known that are outside his family and community (such as predict things in the future exactly multiple times) or ( or better yet, have him know the locations of all the kidnapped victims in the united states, or at least a good amount) that would be much better "evidence" for a Heaven and/or religion.

Burn my draft card
TheAce10 says2014-12-01T13:28:26.5354670-06:00
If their is one thing i hate more than cowards and deserters it is people that are not in the military that dress up as military personnel, and i don't mean for Halloween, but for discounts that are for Military Personnel because they put their lives on the line for our freedom and the freedom of others.
Stalin_Mario says2014-12-01T14:03:10.4587689-06:00
Okay.
Debating_Horse says2018-07-11T16:37:08.5830901Z
It depends on the war. If it were to be a "Vietnam War-type" draft, with a war similar to Vietnam, then I would probably flee the country, but it would be better to join a branch of the nation's army that is most preferable by you. For example, it is 1969, I am 18, I have signed up to become a United States Air Force Fighter Pilot, to pilot an F-4 Phantom II. The second example, I have not signed up, it is the same year, and I am the same age, though when the lottery is finished, my draft number is called.
