by all means, reinstate the draft...

It'll never fly, but Charlie Rangel's at it again:
Asked if he plans to introduce the [military draft] legislation again in 2009, Rangel last week said, “Probably … yes."
As I've said before, I'm all in favor of a draft, provided it's reverse-means tested. No exceptions: Family net worth determines who gets got first with the wealthiest kids getting tossed into the back of the truck, and only then go the upper middle kids, then the middle class kids, then the low enders, etc. Freakin' teenagers!

Hey, It was good enough for Prince Harry. Now there's a kid with some serious coin.

Oh, and remove the age limit too. Make Dubya, for having gone AWOL back when, go to the sandbox assigned to a unit with some of those little white supremist rednecks who upped for no reason than to off some brown-skinned people. Order them to run some gasoline in some under-armored deuce-&-half to a tank unit in a remote section outside the green zone.

Fair's fair.
