    "What if they call you back?"

    Laughing so hard I almost drop my joint, I would say "Are there Russians in the fuckin White House? Cuz that's what would have to happen."

    Well well well. Bush proves me wrong again.

        or on the verge of dropping out, that if it came to it, they were going to get drafted before I was called up! I had 9 months IRR, over 30% hearing loss (who doesn't in the Infantry?) and back and knee problems (Thanks Uncle Sam!) when I got my DD214 for Active and National Guard. They take me back in (especially now) and they are getting desperate!

          Me too. Getting dropped into a live artillery range didn't help.

          My wife claims I just don't listen to women; she might be alittle right. I say: look at me when you talk and start your sentences with keywords like "beer" or "tits".
