    This was brought up on another thread, which was closed down.

    Just so you all know, the "secret draft plans" or the re-vamped "technical draft" is based on a series of hoax e-mails aimed at discrediting Republicans (who do a fine job on their own, thanks). Most people took this bit of whiz-bang information as "fact" without any type of research; pundits on both sides are guilty as charged without even a quick glance at the legislation in question. TYPICAL ;)

    The fact of the matter is, the article question is named "HR163" and was sponsored by Democrats in Congress before the Iraq ordeal. The names on the list of support include:

    Charles Rangel (D) NY - 15th dist.
    Neil Abercrombie (D) HI 1st dist.
    Donna Christensen (D) VI (virgin islands)
    John Conyers (D) MI - 14th dist.
    Alcee Hastings (D) FL - 23rd dist.
    Sheila Jackson-Lee (D) TX - 18th dist.
    Jim McDermott (D) WA - 7th dist.
    Fortney Pete Stark (D) CA - 13th dist.
    Corrine Brown (D) FL - 3rd dist.
    Wm. Lacy Clay (D) MO - 1st dist.
    Elijah Cummings (D) MD - 7th dist.
    Jesse Jackson,Jr. (D) IL - 2nd dist.
    John Lewis (D) GA - 5th dist.
    James Moran (D) VA - 8th dist.
    Nydia Velazquez (D) NY - 12th dist.

    Notice that there are no Republicans on this list. :eek: What gives?

    Ohio's John Boehner of the 8th Congressional District recently spoke out against this rumor:

    And it would have been closed for a reason... and I'm guessing it wasn't so someone could start it up in another thread.

    Enough with the politic threads already!
