    Why don't we have a draft yet?

    Is it because Bush & Co have a principled stance against forced military service?

    Okay, you can stop laughing now.

    No -- it's because the draft is pretty much the only thing Institutional DC thinks could possibly set off enough people to really cause trouble.

    They've concluded that a draft could kill the goose that's been laying golden eggs for them for decades.
