Thoughts at the End of the Day

A lot of people have discussed the draft issue, actually Minou of French Tidbits started me thinking about it in comments on an earlier post, and after I wrote about Rangel, I noticed that Mustang Bobby also covered it at Bark Bark Woof Woof.

I was going to write a post on my personal vision of a new draft, but Michael of Musing’s musings wrote Nice that they finally noticed, which is essentially my view.

National service, not just military service, and make it universal without all of the exemptions of the old system.

Worthy ‘Net Videos

The gang at Crooks and Liars have Keith Olbermann’s latest special comment: Educating Bush on Vietnam. This time “Sir” translates as “you sniveling little twit.”

Liz at Blonde Sense has The Importance of Teaching Civics in Schools, featuring Richard Dreyfuss on Bill Maher’s show.

The Richard Dreyfuss piece is really vital. We are losing democracy by not teaching civics to American students. Listen and then think about it. The man is speaking truth.

Watertiger has moved to the new and improved Dependable Renegade at DependableRenegade.Com, now with TypePad.

If any of the rest of you is considering the move here’s a line to stick into the “Head” area of your Blogger template:

<META HTTP-EQUIV=”Refresh” CONTENT=”5; URL=https://whynow.dumka.us/”>

It goes after the <head> tag and before the </head> tag, and is used to automatically transfer people to the new location after 5 seconds. Obviously you need to insert your new URL for “whynow.dumka.us” or you will be sending people to this site, but it is a handy way of helping people to find you.

Update: Steve Bates mentioned in comments, not to forget to leave a notice that you moved in the old location and you can do the switch immediately if you change the 5 to Zero[0].
