What if the National Guard counted as service, and your role in the NG is to go and help in disaster recovery? We could have a standing "army" of disaster recovery people or people to fight wildfires.
Even the most ardent right winger has to admit 'hero' Zimmerman screamed like a little girl when his stalk didn't go the way he always fantasized it would.
I've been saying this on another thread, and people are just out of their minds when they hear it. Women need to return to the home. Kids need a strong father and a mother who's home, they don't need to be raised by grandparents, they don't need a mom who's going for a degree, they don't need a mom who is working 2 jobs who doesn't have a man, etc.
We need to re-emphasize the strong, nuclear family.

A screaming comes across the sky.

Go read the face book post of the suspects, they're filled with generic and typical anti-social and mysogonistic and violent statements that can be attributed back to the "thug life" culture and rap music.
But issues like that, music and the celebration of gang life is a topic we need to steer clear from.
It's poisoning millions of kids but our President " Knows Jay-Z".
How twisted this Country has become.
