Why no draft registration for females?

DEAR EDITOR:

Regarding the article concerning the Pentagon opening combat roles to women, with billets now becoming available to women in combat and war-fighter units, why is the Administration against mandatory registration with the Selective Service System of women between the ages of 18 and 25 years? After all, this article also referenced President Obama’s inaugural speech “in which he spoke passionately about equal rights for all.”

Really?

With equal rights come equal responsibilities.

"With equal rights come equal responsibilities.'

But Obama decides what is "equal" and what is not. He is an equal opportunity liar, but as Chris Rock says, he is our daddy and michelle is our mommy. No wonder we are in such dark days.

This IS coming as the precedent has been set by the Supreme Court for selective service registration. But the Obamas don't want anyone to know this yet. It's the "Pass the bill to find out what's in it" style of leadership.

And the media is complicit in the lie. We probably won't find out we have to have our 18 year old daughters register until O is out of office.
