  •  yes, but that was purely a shot across the bow (3+ / 0-)

    at our warmongering Congressionals.

    And lest we forget, Charlie Rangel was a decorated war veteran, compared to Romney who has absolutely NO compulsion whatsoever against drafting the sons and daughters of "us people" to do what he himself evaded and evaded and evaded and then evaded again.

    •  A draft actually evens the playing field, which (3+ / 0-)

      was Rangel's point.   More than poor white and brown people would be subjected to a draft.  

      No one serves pursuant to the draft if they luck out and pull a #300 like Mittens did.  Lucky guy, eh?
