America doesn't draft women either, go to any post office for the selective service brochure and it mater-of-factly says in big bold letters "MEN ONLY"!!!

Jim, Gloria creams Hilary. jack, we never workshop our best ideas. Only thing noticed about our current PM is his running interference for Mr. Bush; he's trying to bridge Europe and US this week G8 on climate change---and we've got nothing to brag about.

Current military cannot run for office, Brownie. She'll hafta quit. Primaries aren't until next year. You'll have to accept leading in the polls.

I believe King is using the term as in - to draft a candidate - not as in - Greetings from the President of the United States.

King the US Fed Gov, is a construct of the various Soverign States, each of which have their own pecuilar rules and laws concerning who may appear on the Presidential Ballot.

The Dems and Pubs run sort of a two card Monte, to control who may appear on the ballot. You could research the tribulations of Ross Perot, Patrick Buchannon, Libertarian Party etc, to get a understanding for how the law and rules in each State vary.

Oh and could you include the Re-Establishment of the Republic of Texas as a sub-plot ?

We can bash canada, but their soldiers are first rate. The worlds record documented sniper kill was made by a sniper from the Princess Pats Regt. in Afghnaistan. It was over 2400M if I remember.

I actually ran into an opportuntiy to shut up one of our northern brothers, or I should say "sisters. I was in a hotel waiting to check in and she was ranting with the clerk about Bush and the war. I had only gotten back form Afghanistan a short while before and was not i the mood for anyone, much less a foreigner from bashing my Commander in Chief (right or wrong about the war) She was the typical liberal city Canadian, repleat with Birkenstocks, tied died hemp shirt, unshaved legs, granny glasses, bag of granola in her handbag made of unbleached cotton; you get the picture. Well, anyway, she is blathering on about the terrible war, war isnt the answer to anything.Bush bad, Canada good etc etc. I stood by and finally interjected and told both of them that I had just spent a year deployed and while I respect their right to free speech, they should respect myine and I proceeded to tell them that what they know isnt reality etc. and then asked the Canadian broad if she knew how great and skilled her Canadian soldiers were. She mumbled soemthing in feigned support and then I asked her how she felt having the worlds record for killing a man a long range being accomplished and held by a fellow peace loving Canadian, eh? She was speechless. She was in denial that a fellow Canadian would ever do such a thing. It was a priceless moment where I got to turn, just for a moment the tables on some anti war rant.
But I digress.


The longest-ever confirmed sniper kill was made by Master Cpl. Arron Perry of the Canadian Armed Forces in Afghanistan during combat in 2003. Using a .50-caliber MacMillan TAC-50 rifle, Perry shot and killed an Afghan soldier from a distance of 2,430 metres.

The record was set during Operation Anaconda when a Canadian three-man sniper team from the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry, (PPCLI), set the new record with a shot on a Taliban fighter

Brian, a member of this board mentored and debriefed American and Canadian snipers, including the Princess Pats. training together in the United States. He told me in a private message that what he liked about the "Canadian kids" is that they never gave him any bs aboput hits and misses. Canada comprises 10 per cent of the ISAF force and has had 25 per cent of its casualties.

Pete, yes, she comes home and resigns as a result of her celebrity and backroom Pentagon and White House manoeuvering led by a one-star black general political wizard. Postoak, I guess I'll have to get Gloria positioned for next year's primaries. I've read Ted White's Making of the President 1964, a splendid account of the "Duel to the Death" primaries between Rockefeller and Goldwater. .

I was with JFK when he broke through in Wisconsin in 1960. Thanks to all of you.
