    U.S. Readies for Military Draft
    Despite denials that the U.S. plans to reinstitute the draft, the government has stepped up preparations for a reinvigorated Selective Service System that could allow for a full-blown draft by next year.

    I normally don't believe what newsmax puts on their website, but it surprised me to see a conservative site talking about a possible draft. It's the first conservative site that I have seen even mention it. That's the only reason I posted it.

    Newsmax is usually pretty accurate with their reporting. That is why this is worrying me. It could just be a preparedness drill. Military always needs to be prepared for anything. A draft would be a disaster though.

    You got that right:


    Matthew 13:
    41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;
    42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
    43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
