    That's one thing I can agree with Obama on. Women want equal rights, they share equal burden.

    Call me old-fashioned, but I would prefer a hybrid approach. Women can choose whether they want to go into combat situations. Women are usually smaller and weaker than men, plus there is always the risk of rape.

    Get up close and personal with the word "draft" .. you'll be hearing a lot more of it from President OBambi.

    Usually the ones screaming equal rights are the ones joining of their own free will.

    Maybe if Matt Millen had drafted more women in Detroit than wide receivers he'd still have a job

    If we are willing to force young men into the military then we should be willing to force young women into the military as well.

    Then they can be chosen for the jobs they are capable of like any other soldier.
