also known as Barack Hussein-but-don't-say-that-part Obama, that ought to, as an older relative once said, scare the pee-waddlin' out of you:
Forced 'public service':
In his speech on national service Wednesday at the University of Colorado, Obama promised that as president he would "set a goal for all American middle and high school students to perform 50 hours of service a year, and for all college students to perform 100 hours of service a year."
He would see that these goals are met by, among other things, attaching strings to federal education dollars. If you don't make the kids report for duty, he's essentially telling schools and college kids, you'll lose money you can't afford to lose. In short, he'll make service compulsory by merely compelling schools to make it compulsory.
That's bad. This is worse:
“We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”
What the HELL is he talking about? We've already got a friggin' alphabet of agencies that dig around in our lives, watch what we do and otherwise screw with our lives, and he proposes this?!? This is frickin' bloody awful. You know exactly what he'll want, a federal agency full of nanny-state socialists(just like himself) who'll want to control what we drive, what and how much we eat("Eating badly is not Progressive!") and you think ATF can be bad about firearms? Just wait till something like this gets going, all in the name of National Security.
More reasons why this clown should not be allowed near the Oval Office.
