Liberals (and, to be fair, some compassionate “conservatives”) like to tout the value of youth service. Youth service at McDonald’s, Burger King, Taco Bell or Wal-Mart is worth roughly $8 an hour, depending on location. Unwilling service at the point of a gun (Obama and Rangel’s national service proposals) or service paid for by unwilling taxpayers at the point of a gun (Americorps) is worth the few cents it costs for bullets.
You want more youth service? Put your own money where your mouth is and order some fries with that shake.
