This sounds unconstitutional.

Only States and individuals can start or be members of a militia.

Since when can a President start HIS own militia? What about FEMA. Does this mean FEMA is to be disbanded?

If they don’t enforce this any better than they enforce our immigration laws, we are all home free!!!!

Amazing isn’t it, they can’t afford to secure our borders, but we can afford this nonsense...dangerous nonsense.

Uniformed services

The seven uniformed services are:

1. United States Army

2. United States Navy

3. United States Marine Corps

4. United States Air Force

5. United States Coast Guard

6. United States Public Health Service Commissioned Corps

7. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Commissioned Corps

Each of the uniformed services is administratively headed by a federal executive department and its corresponding civilian Cabinet leader.

This obamanable obamanation must be infiltrated so we can get notice of their training, tactics and plans in time to set up our response to each attack on our freedom.

I’d voluteer, but I doubt that they are seeking 66 year old registered Republicans. I’d never pass the vetting process. Younger and currently unemployed FReepers might be able to pull it off, though.

I’m old, but reasonably fit and willing to take on some of the undercover field work. I don’t especially want to be a martyr, but neither do I want my grandkids trapped in a soviet style system.

Our lives, our fortunes, our Sacred Honor!

2700 pages of mystery few have had a chance to read.

Not only does it establish the health police, but once the corps is established, then an unaccountable, unelected board will work up their rules of operation and budget.

I spit on congress.

Sounds more like a government paraimilitary medical corps.

O’Reilly never could get Congressman Weenie to tell him who the enforcers were last night. Weenie’s non-answers and body language were priceless - especially when he sighed and stared off to the side in silence because O’Reilly wouldn’t accept his BS. As much as I don’t care for O’Reilly, he did a number on Weenie.

I’m a registered Independent. I haven’t changed my status to Republican because It’s kind of fun. They survey me, and call me for opinions all the time. It’s kind of fun telling them off.

can you change you affilliation to Independent?

States better recall all their active duty military personnel. States better activate their militia, the National Guard and strengthen their forces now. The fear in Washington will slow down the communists takeover and give us time to deactivate all Senators and Representatives. All Senators and Representatives will face reelection immediately. The President should be impeached. The US Government has declared war on Americans. Sad but true.

Oh well, I can dream can't I?

“Since when can a President start HIS own militia? What about FEMA. Does this mean FEMA is to be disbanded?”

FEMA is alive and well and not going anywhere soon. FEMA already has a list of trained emergency medical/public safety personnel compiled by a National Integration Center maintained by each state. There has always been a debate about whether or not FEMA has the power to“draft” these folks into active service in times of emergency. Also the USPHS is an old and established branch of service. There is nothing inherently evil about these agencies and their stated functions. The danger is in how those functions could be subverted into a National Health Enforcement Agency.

It has been in effect for many years. Remember seeng the Surgeon Generals wearing a naval officers uniforms? The big question is, if it was already in place . . .why the need to include it in this legislation? Was something changed?

In New Jersey you may register as Republican, Democrat or unaffiliated. You have to be registered in a party to work the polls, which I’ve been doing since sometime in the ‘80s. They put two from each party at each polling place, though I suspect RATs register Pub in some questionable districts so they can get control of the voting.

Looks like minority focused colleges are going to get a huge chunk of funding through this health care bill. Interesting...I don’t really see how that has to do with little Suzy not getting medical treatment at the local hospital or being able to have h-care insurance. I must be one of those un-educated masses they keep talking about.

Section 2104: Investment in Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Minority Serving Institutions.

This section amends section 371(b) of the Higher Education Act by extending funding for programs under this section created under the College Cost Reduction and Access Act of 2007 for programs at Historically Black Colleges and Universities and minority-serving institutions through 2019, including programs that help low-income students attain degrees in the fields of science, technology, engineering or mathematics by the following annual amounts: $100 million to Hispanic Serving Institutions, $85 million to Historically Black Colleges and Universities, $15 million to Predominantly Black Institutions, $30 million to Tribal Colleges and Universities, $15 million to Alaska, Hawaiian Native Institutions, $5 million to Asian American and Pacific Islander Institutions, and $5 million to Native
American non-tribal serving institutions.

I think this has to do with reparations....more money for minorities so they can become doctors. This wording was also in the House bill.
