Someone Take The Wheel

  CODE BLUE

Monkeyfister works at one of the Navy recruiting offices and writes the following. All the previous scares about reinstituting the draft had been waved away by his insider information. Now this:

"The mullets at Daytona failed to line up for military service this weekend. There is a palpable heaviness here at Navy Recruiting Command, and nobody who was there seems to want to comment on the horrible return on the NASCAR investment.

Army and Marines gave away tons of goodies, but NO ONE was willing to talk or sign a contract. They say the results were "dreary". The code word here has shifted from "active recruiting" to "awareness," and that has my hackles up.

The "National Call To Service" has just been fully implemented (just last week), but so far there are very few takers. The Army Nat'l Guard is giving away TONS of free money and college tuition waivers for anyone who will sign on, but the desperation seems palpable with that crowd.

CODE BLUE-- What's that mean?

Well, it all depends on Nov. 2nd... If Shrubby gets elected-- count on the draft gates beginning to open by Spring 2006 to Fall of same year. I just got word, that my biggest arguement AGAINST the Draft-- lack of buildings at RTC's-- is getting chipped at. New buildings ARE being built at Great Lakes RTC, Camp LeJuene, and Ft Leonard Wood. Bad signs.

There is still plenty of time, but one might consider saving up some plane fare, and getting Passports in line for the possibility of the BFEE looking for fresh meat. Even the upper-level guys here, who poo-poo'd the idea of a draft a couple of months ago, are beginning to discuss the possibilities.

NOTHING IS IMMINENT-- This is just a heads-up, but I'll keep the Draft Warning at CODE BLUE until further notice."

Rip out the table
we need room to move
in a life unstable
you're so easily amused
anywhere you hang
yourself is home
throw in a tape, fix the tone

The windows are dirty let's hope it rains
add another newspaper
something to do with my change
I see we're fighting again
In some fucking land
throw in another tape man

Someone take the wheel
and I don't know where we're going
anybody say what you feel
everybody's sad, but nobody's showing
