OK folks, time to call your local reps as H.1761- introduced by Representatives Howrigan of Fairfield, Bissonnette of Winooski, Canfield of Fair Haven, Consejo of Sheldon, Helm of Castleton, Mitchell of Barnard, Moran of Wardsboro, Townsend of Randolph, Waite-Simpson of Essex and Young of St. Albans City- would “provide that when persons who are required by federal law to register with the Selective Service System apply for a nondriver identification card, learner permit, junior operator license, operator license, or commercial driver license, the signature on the application shall additionally serve as registration with the Selective Service System.”  Pretty much if you go to the DMV, even for a non-driver ID, your signature on the bottom line would sign you up for the draft.

I’ll casually call this bull shit and hope you join me in letting your Reps know that you don’t support this kind of legislation.  And where’s Douglas decrying this as a distraction from the important and all consuming business of budgets and economic stimulus?
