- Article Thirteen
- "Section 1; Neither slavery nor involuntary
servitude; except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have
been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place
subject to their jurisdiction."
- Apparently neither the White House Staff nor the members
of the US House of Representatives can read; what is clear is that they
did not read Article Thirteen of the United States Constitution, cited
above. That 'Article' was added to the Constitution for very good reasons,
and neither it nor any of the other Articles are to be abridged without
the consent of the governed. If they could read and comprehend what the
words mean, then all should understand that the legislation that the House
just passed is Unconstitutional!
- 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.
- When you have a dictator that is not yet an adult, it
seems that some very strange things happen on the way to trying to govern
a nation. This latest attempt to spit upon yet another amendment to the
Constitution must be challenged and rejected-but this time the authors
of this attempt to seize the lives of US citizens, for the shoddy political
aims of a childish dictator who apparently cannot even read; should be
- After all just how many members of congress or the White
House have volunteered to serve this nation, (service in the Israeli Defense
Forces does not count) in any way whatever that involves the term involuntary?
That actual number cannot be very high given the degree of self-absorbsion
among that crowd-of-certified-criminals who refer to themselves as politicians.
- "Government-mandated "community service"
is integral to Barack Obama's vision of "change." Obama has
described such service as a key element of creating "a new era of
responsibility - a recognition on the part of every American that we have
duties to ourselves, our nation and the world; duties that we do not
grudgingly accept, but rather seize gladly, firm in the knowledge that
there is nothing so satisfying to the spirit, so defining of our character
than giving our all to a difficult task." [Duties that are self-created
- "The problem with such service, apparently, is that
it is neither mandated nor brokered by the government. So from the perspective
of those who believe that life should be organized by the state, such
spontaneous service simply doesn't count." [given the revulsion
of so many in congress against the government being allowed to run something
like a public health care plan-it is difficult to understand this government's
passion to draft every person in the country (all the way up to 65 years
of age) depending on what skills might be needed by the government, at
discount rates, inside a totally government controlled legion of politically
neutered bodies - in the military you have no right to speak your political
- "Before it created a small but significant scandal,
the Obama campaign's position paper on national service promised that
as president he would "inspire" Americans to render "universal
voluntary service. It was not explained how service could be both "universal"
and truly "voluntary." [In less than two months on-the-job;
Obama has gone from being an inspirational figure-head to becoming a leader
of criminally-inclined incompetents that are rapidly destroying the idea
that Barack ever possessed any judgment, when it comes to 'understanding
character traits' in those he appoints to high or important offices; anywhere
within his "administration." So why should anyone want to emulate
a man who is rapidly proving that he's just about the dumbest kid on the
block-especially when it comes to who should serve in "public service"]
- "The Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education
Act; in 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
- The Senate is also considering a similar piece of legislation
known as the "Serve America Act," which also includes language
about "Youth Engagement Zones".
- "Fears about Obama's plans to create involuntary
servitude were first stoked in July 2008, when Obama told a rally in Colorado
Springs, "We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to
achieve the national security objectives we've set. We've got to have
a civilian national security force that is just as powerful, just as strong,
just as well funded."
- Despite denials that Obama plans to institute a mandatory
program of national service, his original change.gov website stated that
Americans would be "required" to complete "50 hours of
community service in middle school and high school and 100 hours of community
service in college every year". The text was only later changed to
state that Americans would be "encouraged" to undertake such
- Does any of the above garbage leave you with a warm and
fuzzy feeling about just how well intentioned our Boy-Dictator is being,
when it comes to using or abusing the youth of this nation, in a cause
or causes he has yet to specifically name? Moreover the world is changing
so fast now that it is almost impossible to tell the players any more,
without first Goggling their names. Our foreign policy is something that
seems to change every two weeks or so- along with whichever bunch of 'yes-people"
are either currently in favor or under investigation-so how will having
a civilian Youth Corp. to augment the US military be of any direct help
to our soon to become permanent Foreign Legions?
- And, since both the volunteer military and the volunteer
youth corp. will get script for pay, when compared to the huge and private-military-contractors
(mercenaries), that will also be serving in the same places overseas with
the underpaid US military and in US cities with the conscripted volunteer
Youth Corp: The question has to be raised-What's it all for Barack; are
we emulating Il Duce, the Third Reich or maybe the Communist Youth Brigades?
- Of course we'll never know the specifics until AFTER
the legislation is passed-if history has any bearing here-on how things
will continue to be done on Obamanation's watch? Why don't we do something
really revolutionary this time: Why don't we mandate that this entire
Black Hole be discussed among the people whose loved ones will be taken,
and whose lives will be impacted? Isn't that something that the Constitution
had in mind when it left everything up to the people to decide, instead
of to the bought and paid for hacks that have hijacked our national voice
and stolen our treasury?
- This "new concept" of consulting people ought
to especially apply to this Dictator who lacks vision, and is a total-stranger
to experience as shown by his total lack of concentration on any of the
real problems that he inherited.
- Had he been the 'leader' he claimed to be he would never
have appointed so many proven failures to key offices throughout his
administration. But then maybe that's why the White House is now run by
Israeli-Americans; as typified by Rahm Emanuel, the snake who apparently
came up with this cute little number to keep American youth busy. In 2006
Rahm called this "Universal Civil Defense Training," I guess
that fits nicely if you've spent your obligatory two year stint in the
Israeli Defense Forces (but NOT in the US military). I did six years in
the US Air Force, belligerently, but managed an honorable discharge anyhow.
It was a jail sentence that seemed interminable, but that was the late
50's and it was not optional.
- This time the Congress ought to apologize to the nation
for failing to think this piece of garbage through, before they "put
it to a vote" as they have always done, since Bush Junior stole the
