    Especially points 4 and 5. It pains me to see my brothers and sisters shipped out to unload crates of supplies or fill sandbags. Why not empower a new version of the FDR-era CCC and put civilians on the payroll to fulfill this duty in time of need? WRT to #5, I also resent being "spoken at." Too many of my friends and associates on this side of the political spectrum see military service as something to be ashamed of.
