      to work those three letters into making sense.

      (Kinda like the idea of Drafting the Corporations.  But I think they would never be able to march in an honest line.)

        With apologies to Mary O'Hara.

        Obviously corporations AREN'T people, and do not have all of the obligations or rights of citizens.  The draft was something I thought might make that clear to certain mindsets.

        If we were to try to actually make it literal, a Truman Committee would be the way to go:

        The draft for war-mongering corporations would be a requirement to provide fully audit-able non-profit  services up to their full corporate capacity.  It's really notable how much federal contracting has changed under Bush and then under ARRA.  This is yet another thing where we need some policy reform.
