    In fact, I should have added that to the post/diary.

    This is a fact: at one point in our nation's history a family had a choice in time of war. Send a kid, or pay a STEEP tax.

    If the war in (fill in the blank, Afghanistan/Iraq/Syria???) is so worthwhile, what are THE WEALTHY willing to sacrifice to fight it?

    Seems to me that there'd be a lot less war if, oh, let's say 1% or so of us, didn't make such a killing on it.

    Pardon the obviously distasteful pun.
