  •  Yep, mandatory national sevice - and expand it... (8+ / 0-) include:

    * Americorps
    * Peace Corps
    * A new CCC
    * US Public Health Service
    * US Forest Service

    among the choices available for those enrolled in national service.

    Use former/downsized military bases for housing and meals wherever possible, shift manufacture of military uniforms to civilian-style work clothes...and off we go.

    It would be one of the best possible stimulus programs.

    The word "parent" is supposed to be a VERB, people...

    •  The first batch would have to rebuild base housing (0+ / 0-)

      Has anyone seen the Mythbusters episodes filmed at one of those closed bases in California?  They look like they were built in the 1960s, but they look more like a ghost town of the 1860s!

      At least they make great places to test blind or drunk driving myths and whether bug bombs blow up houses.  Your tax dollars RETIRED!
