#2 "I remember what it was like when I was a little girl," Warren continued. "My brother, my oldest brother who served five and a half years off and on in combat in Vietnam, what it was like for my mother every day to check the mailbox."

...Given Senator Warren's relationship with the truth, I must now question whether or not she was ever a little girl, whether or not she actually had a brother, or whether or not there is someplace called Vietnam.

#3 "Lets start by forming special Antifa battalions to deal with domestic enemies"?

I thought that was already taken care of by a lesser known and dubious part of Obamacare.

Oh, wait ....

#6 Is she talking about drafting people? The military hates having draftees, most of whom are unmotivated and not at all interested in serving.
Besides, she seems to think that the military can be used like FDR's Civilian Conservation Corps. No, Liz, the purpose of the military is to kill people and break things. Everything else is secondary or tertiary to that.

#7 Miss Warren like a lot of congresscritter have no understanding of the Constitution. She sits in the legislative branch whose powers defined by the Constitution reads -

16. To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the militia, and for governing such part of them as may be employed in the service of the United States, reserving to the states respectively, the appointment of the officers, and the authority of training the militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress;

It's already on the books so to speak. The implementing authority is Title X USC

§246. Militia: composition and classes

(a) The militia of the United States consists of all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age and, except as provided in section 313 of title 32, under 45 years of age who are, or who have made a declaration of intention to become, citizens of the United States and of female citizens of the United States who are members of the National Guard.

(b) The classes of the militia are—

(1) the organized militia, which consists of the National Guard and the Naval Militia; and

(2) the unorganized militia, which consists of the members of the militia who are not members of the National Guard or the Naval Militia.


That is what the 'Draft' is, the activation of the federal militia, aka selective service. Apparently, she doesn't mind the outright sexism of the disparate impact upon the male prostate portion of the existing law.

Her kind however, want the return of cheap slave labor cause they believe the citizenry exist to serve the state like any color of the Left's 'isms.

#9 A cowgirl from out of Fort Worth
Was drivin' her cattle up north
But got in some jimson
And woke up all crimson...
Well, leastwise, one ten-twenty-fourth.

#10 An "Indian" maiden, Red Herring,
Played princess, and slick was her bearing!
Deplorable bourgeois,
Removing her rouge ("Whaaa?"),
All thought misbegotten
And fishy -- no, rotten! --
Her vision of socialist Chering.

#13 Be like the Mormons.
Everybody serves the minimum then joins the reserves.
College stipend, monthly beer call prayer meetings, 2 week summer campout, second income until retirement.
10% to the temple taxes.

#14 I wouldn't mind some system to get kids to join the Peace Corps and see the socialist third world dumps their teachers have put on a pedestal.

Cancel one of those new fighters and we can send an entire generation to Africa to unlearn and remove the brainwashing that it's all the wests fault. In the long run our country will be better off.
