Louisiana teens getting driver's license also register for selective service

Oh, I just love this one . . .

"There may be no 'plans' for a national military draft, but that hasn't kept Louisiana from registering teenagers too young to serve in case conditions change."

Yes, W has "promised" that the draft will not be reinstated. Some people might even believe him. But it's the reaction of these teens that makes this article a gem. Check it out:

"After being informed of the new condition for getting a first-time license, some of the teenagers only shrugged.

"'I don't care,' Mark Fontenot, a 16-year-old student at Apostolic Christian Academy, said.

"Pineville High School student Josh Stokes, 15, said, 'I think it's good.'

"But neither student would elaborate on his view."

You know why they wouldn't elaborate? Because it's likely they're literally unable. They've been born into a mindless hive society where dissenting opinions and creative solutions are the stuff of bureaucratic nightmares, where the slightest hint of intellect arouses suspicion and hatred.

Despite their apathy, there's a better-than-average chance these kids will be dead before they're thirty.

"I don't care."

"I think it's good."

The voice of a new generation.
