I know the truth is hard for you to speak, but sometimes it gets you out of things you don't want to do.
hmm, that's a thought but unfortunately I have served my country in many capacities here and abroad so that's not going to fly, they can check on that sort of thing you know, didn't you check my files? I mean didn't the boyz tell you why they were laughing at you after you called them that you knew of "traitor" posting on BWOT?
Try harder

According to you, there were at least a few that weren't laughing too hard, isn't that right?

Did you ever consider just not replying? The notice was sent via the USPS right? Did you sign for it? Is there any proof that you received a notice?

No I want to serve, if it is reasonable. Here in Baltimore they have a problem where they can't get people on jury duty so they will stick it on people like me to stick around for days. Hell my wife was called in more than once because "we are nice people" I think that's bullshit, don't you think?

Wouldn't suggest you try that, the Judges issue Bench Warrants for those that don't show up in Montgomery County, MD.

From what I saw, if you have connections to any government, Fedreral, State, or local, and feel you have reason to be non objective in your opinion, you can get excused.
Out of the approximately 20 people that were selected for the case I was selected for, ten were excused outright for almost no reason other then something like they got a traffic ticket and didn't like the way the officer talked to them.
More were excused because they "thought" they couldn't be objective. It's harder to get on a jury than it is to get off.
