Goose Stepping Lemings

This is a bit disturbing, does anyone ever read the bills they vote on, if so what the heck are they thinking.I can not help but think if a movement , say in the 1930’s that had some of the same overtones toward the youth, get them while they are young……I wonder if this is the change we are all waiting for, This bill’s title is called “Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education” (GIVE) Obama’s plan is to require anyone receiving school loans and others to serve at least three months as part of the brigade. His goal is one million youth!

So the way I read it, 1 million youth that can not HERE is the link to the section of the bill READ IT I am not making this one up.

  1. So it seems to boil down to ‘religious individuals’ will have a much tougher time getting educated. I’ve not had a chance to read it, my head may explode, as I trust your account, I’ll just say that…well, I would curse a storm, suffice to say, does the Constitution mean anything anymore? I guess our President must be too pretty for a good portion of folks to really pay attention, and he speeks so gud two. Did you catch the idea that was floated that Veterans that have recieved war injuries ought to use private insurance to pay for their care, to ease the taxpayer burden.
