It's time for a real Patriot Act that brings out the patriot in all of us. We propose universal civilian service for every young American. Under this plan, All Americans between the ages of eighteen and twenty-five will be asked to serve their country by going through three months of basic training, civil defense preparation and community service... Young people will know that between the ages of eighteen and twenty-five, the nation will enlist them for three months of civilian service. They'll be asked to report for three months of basic civil defense training in their state
--Rahm Emanuel, Barak Obama's Chief of Staff.
I think right now is a real bad time to have a daughter age eighteen to twenty-five.
At least this secret police is going to be filled with least-common-denominator college students. It'll be several orders of magnitude easier to evade than the SS or the NKVD. Still, troubling times. I think I may move to my homeland of Bavaria.
