Getting Drafty In Here

I’m sure I’ve confessed to all of you about my “prodigal son”, haven’t I? The 35-year-old dipshit, perpetual college student who has wandered over to the Liberal dark side while at school. Fortunately, I have two sons so if I have to take this one out, I’ll have a spare to keep the genes in the pool.

The doofus son and I got into quite an argument back in the summer of 2004 when he stopped by to visit on the way back to school.  He didn’t want to watch FOX News and I didn’t want to watch CNN so we retired to neutral corners and watched MSNBC (which was almost as bad as CNN). But that wasn’t where the real argument began. Nosiree.

We started talking about candidates and I got an earful of the usual Liberal bilge about Kerry. Now I know why some animals kill and eat their young. Darwin at work in its purest form, I say. He threw all kinds of rumors at me that the students at the University Of New Mexico were talking about - that Michael Moore was going to be arrested, the Bush wouldn’t step down if Kerry was elected and the one that literally cracked me up and had me rolling on the floor ... that Bush was going to reinstate the draft if he won so he could throw more young people in the “Iraq meat ginder”. His words, not mine.

I decided at that point to cut him out of the will and began to wonder exactly what kind of insanity jiuce they were putting in the water fountains at our nation’s colleges. Regardless, I have a message for Mister Pinhead Useless Son today. Are you ready for this, you total waste of sperm? Here goes ....

Amid Uproar Over War, Rangel Renews Call for Draft
(WASHGINTON POST) - Monday, November 20, 2006

imageimageThe incoming Democratic chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee said yesterday that he will push to renew the military draft, as lawmakers in both parties sharpened their criticisms of the situation in Iraq and struggled for consensus and solutions.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), a likely presidential contender, leveled one of his harshest assessments yet, saying U.S. troops are “fighting and dying for a failed policy.” He renewed his call for more U.S. troops in Iraq and said it is immoral to keep them fighting at the current deployment levels.

And Sen. Carl M. Levin (D-Mich.), incoming chairman of the Armed Services Committee, repeated yesterday his view that troop withdrawals must begin within four to six months.

The varying proposals underscored the extent to which key policymakers remain at odds two weeks after voters registered deep discontent over the war and restored Democrats to power in Congress.

Rep. Charles B. Rangel (D-N.Y.) has long advocated returning to the draft, but his efforts drew little attention during the 12 years that House Democrats were in the minority. Starting in January, however, he will chair the tax-writing Ways and Means Committee. Yesterday he said “you bet your life” he will renew his drive for a draft.

“I will be introducing that bill as soon as we start the new session,” Rangel said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” He portrayed the draft, suspended since 1973, as a means of spreading military obligations more equitably and prompting political leaders to think twice before starting wars.

“There’s no question in my mind that this president and this administration would never have invaded Iraq, especially on the flimsy evidence that was presented to the Congress, if indeed we had a draft and members of Congress and the administration thought that their kids from their communities would be placed in harm’s way,” said Rangel, a Korean War veteran. “If we’re going to challenge Iran and challenge North Korea and then, as some people have asked, to send more troops to Iraq, we can’t do that without a draft.” Rangel has drawn modest support for his draft proposal in recent years and it has been unclear whether its prospects might improve in the 110th Congress.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
