“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.” -Barack Obama last week talking about his new mandatory voluteer programs. No, I didn’t make that up.
Okay, does that scare the hell out of anybody else?
I know he’s not talking about the militia here. He’s talking about a “civilian national security force”. I can’t help myself, and I’m going to Godwin the heck out of this post, but the very first thing that popped into my head when he said that was the Brownshirts.
Why do we need this CNSF exactly? Is the military not pulling its weight? Are they not up to the task? He mentions how this group will need to be just as well funded as the real military, which is ironic, since as a democrat, one of his core values is to rape the military budget to pay for crack whores and social programs whenever possible.
So if the military is doing its job, why do we need this CNSF? Is it because the men and women of the US Military won’t be willing to do some of the things that he’s going to ask of them? What exactly does he have in mind then?
What will be the mission of this hyper-powerful organization? Stop global warming? Punish polluters? Enforce diversity? It sure as hell won’t be things like Provide For The Common Defense, or other little things from the Constituion. Hey, I know, maybe they can all play dress up, and go out one night and hold Crystal Night 2.
I’m sure that they won’t actually wear brown shirts. That’s so last century… Barack does have style. I’ll give him that. I bet they’ll get nifty hats.
Sorry folks, that there is some scary stuff. Spin it any which way you want. Obama supporters, I would absolutely LOVE to hear you explain this to me.
Also from the same speech, he outlined how he’s going to require volunteering. (mandatory volunteers, get it?) High school students will have to volunteer 50 hours a year, college students will have to volunteer 100, in order to graduate. But see, that’s not mandatory, but if you don’t do it, then your school won’t get federal funds… Yep, guess what just became a graduation requirement…
What a load of crap. I put myself through college. I worked full time, and usually had two jobs, and took about 15 credits per semester. My wife worked in a kitchen for 40 hours a week and took an average of 18 credits, and she did that until we had our first child. That’s how real Americans put themselves through school, you ivory tower elitist prick. We don’t have mommy paying for us. We don’t go into asinine debt to attend Harvard and then whine about how life isn’t fair because the government didn’t pay for it. We work our asses off.
And you have the audacity to say that you’re going to require us to do something else?
I’m Mormon. We volunteer to an obnoxious degree. We don’t even have a paid ministry, so that means everything is done by volunteers. (Our Bishops don’t get Rev. Wright money, they all have real jobs) But I’m willing to bet teaching Sunday School, or doing the old widow’s yard work isn’t going to be on Barack’s Government-Approved volunteer list. Nope. Our future students will get to do important work, like passing out free condoms and needles to inner-city crack whores, and then registering them to vote.
Barack despises the military. Why else does he need a rival organization founded in his image? I haven’t seen this speech get any attention at all, but he’s talking about an expansion of governmental power that would make the Department of Homeland Security look like your neighborhood’s Girl Scout Program. ZERO MEDIA SCRUTINY.
Barack despises those of us in fly-over country, out here clinging to our guns and our religion. Do you really think, even for a split second, that he respects the things that you volunteer for now? Of course not. Unless you’re marching for gay marriage for terrorists… Despite the fact that Americans are the most generous people in history, we’re still too stupid to manage our own affairs, and we have to be told what to do.
EDIT: To add a link to a newspaper, because I’ve had some people tell me that had to be fabricated because it was too damn crazy. http://wap.chicagotribune.mlogic3g.com/news.jsp?key=166447&rc=na_wo&p=3 So here’s one from his home town paper. If you check Google, you can find this linked in about fifty other papers. I originally heard it on the radio while driving home, and then had to jump online because I thought that I had misheard.
