... betrays nothing but ENVY instead of disdain for those not shouldering their share of the burdens of national service. Instead of making an even MORE egalitarian and equitable national service system, the WHINERS are placated by ALSO escaping and letting the least enfranchised stand in harm's way. Then, to add insult to injury, the privileged 80% insult and demean those who wear the uniform of their country. Baby killers! War criminals!

Abdicating the social contract of a democracy the peanut gallery liberals sneer and posture and paint totally imaginary pictures of some dystopian ideation that has absolutely no basis in reality and for which they have no real commitment. Like some talisman, they wave it around to apologize indolence, sloth, and escapism. But heaven forbid they invest even a FRACTION of that which those serving have surrendered. Oh, no. After all, getting a piece of the 'privileged' action is what it's all about. Fuck the poor.

Fill 'er up?
Justice ...
Justice is the only worship.
Love is the only priest.
Ignorance is the only slavery.
Happiness is the only good.
The time to be happy is now,
The place to be happy is here,
The way to be happy is to make others so.
