! ATTENTION TO ALL MALES!

          Congress has just passed the Selective Service Act!  This means that all men must register with the government to be randomly selected for the military force.  Right now there is only 200,000 men in the military and more manpower is needed!  Since Russia had now changed their government to a representative, the United States is entering the war to spread democracy.  There are recruiting stations all over the United States.  Failure to register is a felony.  The consequences are very harsh.  For example, loss of federal and state jobs, loss of student financial aid, and even eligibility of U.S. citizenship.  SIGN UP NOW!!!
