College Snowflakes Panic at the Prospect of a Draft
I can already hear you guys getting mad about the title of today’s show. But you must forgive me a little clickbait every now & again.
Ever since the US assassinated Iranian General Soleimani, social media has been abuzz with fears that World War 3 is imminent. And people assume a world war will bring back the draft.
First of all, let’s be clear: there’s no way there’s going to be a draft.
Because Congress knows they’d be hanged in the streets immediately after they announced it.
But I’ll admit, it’s pretty funny watching college students realize that their FAFSA (college financial aid) paperwork included signing up for the draft. Seems like it would be common sense that the government isn’t going to give away money for free. They’re gonna expect their pound of flesh in return.
Alas, common sense isn’t so common these days.
