    "... A second task we can take on together is to design and establish a volunteer Civilian Reserve Corps. Such a corps would function much like our military reserve.

And it would give people across America who do not wear the uniform a chance to serve in the defining struggle of our time."

National Guard troops have rescued 44 people from the storm, which buried the foothills west of Denver with more than 2 feet of snow. More than 650 people spent Saturday night in shelters, officials said. The storm that had once stretched nearly from Canada to Mexico was still dumping snow Sunday from Minnesota to Kansas.

As a matter of fact, last year's budget is allowing one million illegal aliens to enter this year as well. That is how many immigrants enter our country...
