As the man says, this is creepy, stupid

AND dangerous:
The U.S. House of Representatives has approved a plan to set up a new “volunteer corps” and consider whether “a workable, fair, and reasonable mandatory service requirement for all able young people” should be developed.

The legislation also refers to “uniforms” that would be worn by the “volunteers” and the “need” for a “public service academy, a 4-year institution” to “focus on training” future “public sector leaders.” The training, apparently, would occur at “campuses.”

I am going to fall back into bad language, here:
To every jackass in the House who voted for this, fuck you. And the horse you rode in on. You're a betrayer of this country, and should be kicked out of that office with steel-toed boots. Besides all the other bullshit in this, it's just amazing how they seem to not understand that 'mandatory' means it's not 'voluntary'; it is involuntary servitude. And for endorsing it, you should be tied to a whipping post in the town square and reminded that you're not our damned boss.

I was going to write something else, but this is nearly a RCOB moment and I would write too much.
