He Just Keeps On Giving.

Our old scuzzy friend Charlie Wrangle has just introduced the following bill:

Text of H.R. 5741: Universal National Service Act

"To require all persons in the United States between the ages of 18 and 42 to perform national service, either as a member of the uniformed services or in civilian service in furtherance of the national defense and homeland security, to authorize the induction of persons in the uniformed services during wartime to meet end-strength requirements of the uniformed services, and for other purposes."

He's been doing that for years.

On the one hand, a couple of years of service seems like a good thing. On the other, it's the mandatory part that gets sticky. So far, it's never passed.

I think it's very interesting that there are some people in government who feel that we should be "patriotic" by volunteering our time and to as this person puts it, "... uniformed services during war time to meet in strength requirements..."

Why in the hell should we?

I mean I hate to be negative, but we can't even protect our own country must less anybody else's.

We have foreign invaders by the millions on our own soil and we refuse to do anything about it. if there's any war at that we are participating in, it should be that one.

so when Charlie Wrangle wants to defend America itself [literally], and let's talk.
