Jonah Goldberg compares Obama’s volunteer national service program to slavery.
I give up. I can’t keep up with them.

Does this mean the Solomon amendment to deny federal funding to universities that do not allow ROTC programs is JUST LIKE PRESS GANGS!

Comment of the day:
I have never told this story before now, but Jonah has empowered me to step forward.
From the age of five until the age of sixteen, I was forced by an “institution of learning” to learn to read and write. I was also compelled—against my will—to learn mathematics as well., I had no choice. I was a slave.
But that is not the worst part. The worst is that I had become so indoctrinated that, like a kidnap victim who comes to identify with their kidnappers, I continued my slavery for an additional seven years of “my own free will.” I eventually earned a degree, but I now realize that it was A DEGREE IN SLAVERY.
My God, I weep when I think of the poor innocents who will be enslaved by Obama into volunteer service and will be “paid” with college tuition.
