The Return of Slavery to The United States

It is ironic, that the return of slavery in the United States, would be brought about by this nation's first black president. The house has approved HB 1388. Embedded in this bill are provisions for spending 6 billion dollars to implement a MANDATORY "voluntary" service period for all citizens of the US. From the language it would appear that only children are exempt. This violates the Thirteenth Amendment. Now, I'm still having problems understanding how a "voluntary" service can be made "mandatory". But I guess I just haven't spent enough time in the reeducation camps...

The federal government has the responsibility to ensure we are not only well taken care of, but to make sure we live happy and productive lives in a way that benefit our community and our government.

At least, that is what I'm sure all of that is what our founding fathers had in mind. Never mind what they said in the Constitution, you have to know what they really meant.

Sorry, that was my alter ego speaking up there.

I suppose seniors could be forced into service by dangling the Medicrap carrots. But I'm damn sure not into forced volunteering or wearing a brown shirt! Should be interesting to see what the Ostapo might come up with for consequences of senior civil disobedience.

Not only does it violate the thirteenth amendment, but it also violates the first.

This is a horrendous piece of work, and we need to do whatever we can in these next few days to keep Obama from signing it into law.

I've posted some ideas at my blog, and an email that I'm encouraging people to send to all of their friends to educate them as to what is going on.

Hope you can use it.

You just haven't spent enough time in the reeducation camps YET!!

All I can say is, lock and load, I won't spend a day in one, and this service thing is nothing more than the rebuilding of *the Brown Shirts*, aka Hitler Youth...

Compulsory volunteerism was something Bill Clinton tried floating when he was in he White House.
Interesting to see the Discount Messiah is reading from the same playbook.
