Light Draft, Less Filling
Yet another good link from Eschaton.
The link is funny, but the looming draft ain't no joke.
The Republicans that are denying this second term inevitability won't be issuing apologies after they flip-flop. They won't be attending any funerals either.
The New York Times article yesterday ain't no joke: (via Daily Kos): "The Selective Service has been updating its contingency plans for a draft of doctors, nurses and other health care workers in case of a national emergency that overwhelms the military's medical corps. In a confidential report this summer, a contractor hired by the agency described how such a draft might work, how to secure compliance and how to mold public opinion and communicate with health care professionals, whose lives could be disrupted."
