Meyer, who encouraged employers to think of four years in the military as being as valuable as four years at a university,

Quite honestly, four years in the military is almost certainly more valuable than four years at most universities and in most degree programs.  If nothing else, most vets have a sense of self-discipline and of getting the job done first before you go and play that is more valuable than most so-called larnin' because on-the-job training can easily supplant any lack of a university degree, but no amount of on-the-job training in a civilian job can instill the sort of self-discipline that is so necessary to the success of most businesses.

Word....

I used to be against the draft, but our young kids are so spoiled and so into me, me. me. I think a min of two years in the military would be a good thing.

My sentiments exactly.  I was strongly opposed to a draft, but I think a few years in the military would benefit the younger generation immensely.

How in the world would the military deal with the low life scum that would be drafted into their midst.

The same way the military has always dealt with the low life scum that has always been drafted into its midst:  by turning them into acceptable recruits or washing them out.

Kick their rear end, throw them into the stockade, give them extra duty. No tools more complicated than a mop or shovel. That worked back in the day. Low life scum aren't always draftees either. Some draftees made excellent soldiers/sailors/airmen/marines. All they needed was a little positive reinforcement and direction.
I wonder when the lies will stop and truth begin, even as grim as the truth may be. And then I remember that for 70 years, the reign of terror in Russia called itself "the people's government." We have so far to fall, yet we are falling fast and Hell yawns to receive us.

I always caught cold in drafty places.  :whistle:
