The House passed a bill yesterday which includes disturbing language indicating young people will be forced to undertake mandatory national service programs as fears about President Barack Obamas promised civilian national security force intensify.Let the indoctrination begin.
The Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education Act, known as the GIVE Act, was passed yesterday by a 321-105 margin and now goes to the Senate.
Under section 6104 of the bill, entitled Duties, in subsection B6, the legislation states that a commission will be set up to investigate, Whether a workable, fair, and reasonable mandatory service requirement for all able young people could be developed, and how such a requirement could be implemented in a manner that would strengthen the social fabric of the Nation and overcome civic challenges by bringing together people from diverse economic, ethnic, and educational backgrounds.
Section 120 of the bill also discusses the Youth Engagement Zone Program and states that service learning will be a mandatory part of the curriculum in all of the secondary schools served by the local educational agency.
The legislation, slated to cost $6 billion over five years, would create 175,000 new service opportunities under AmeriCorps, bringing the number of participants in the national volunteer program to 250,000. It would also create additional corps to expand the reach of volunteerism into new sectors, including a Clean Energy Corps, Education Corps, Healthy Futures Corps and Veterans Service Corps, and it expands the National Civilian Community Corps to focus on additional areas like disaster relief and energy conservation, reports Fox News.
"There is even a provision in the bill for uniforms."Of course.
Ha! I compared Obama to Hitler the other day and my Jewish friend said that Rush hates Jews, not Obama.
Over my dead body Obama.
We need a list of who voted Yea and Nay on this.
That means quite a few Republicrats voted for it. I wonder what outrageous lies they will tell to justify their votes.
One small step for man, one giant goosestep for America!
If the Tea Party folks were smart, that they would stop putting their names out there and go underground.
I hear there were republicans that voted for this.
Good job guys, you are in no way prepared to mount any attack and win in 2010.
Shameful, or else they are in on it.
My kids will be conscientious objectors.
I want to know who voted for this! Where can we get a list?
The fate of our country would hang in the balance.
Anytime Obama takes any action or promotes any bill in congress ask yourself this one question. Is this the action a Marxist would take if President?

Volunteers fanned out across the Birmingham area and Alabama Saturday to pump up enthusiasm for President Barack Obama's budget proposal in much the same way they did to win over voters during the presidential campaign.
About 30 volunteers in Birmingham canvassed shopping areas and other high-traffic locations to talk about the need for health care reform, an education overhaul and environmentally friendly energy development.
"If we don't change these three things in the next 10 to 15 years, America is over as we know it," Chris DeHaven, told the group of volunteers before they went their separate ways.
Obama's plan faces criticism from Republicans and others who say it's too expensive. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office released a report Friday saying Obama's agenda would cause huge budget deficits, forcing the country to borrow $9.3 trillion in the next decade.
Those who gathered at Kelly Ingram Park in downtown Birmingham were urged to enlist others who share Obama's vision and to stay away from trying to convert naysayers.
"We're looking for supporters," said DeHaven of Hoover, one of the event's organizers. "We're not looking for a fight. That will come later, when we have an army."
Toubled or doubled?
I hear Canada is nice this time of year
That’s pretty sick.. How about let them live to fight another day. You raise them right, even if the State takes them, they will resist from within.
