Great Seal Of The United States, Front

H.R. 5741 The Universal National Service Bill, also called the Slavery Bill was introduced by Charlie Rangle last month before more of his legal woes came to light by The House Ethics Committee. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_B._Rangel  

The exact description-

To require all persons in the United States between the ages of 18 and 42 to perform national service, either as a member of the uniformed services or in civilian service in furtherance of the national defense and homeland security, to authorize the induction of persons in the uniformed services during wartime to meet end-strength requirements of the uniformed services, and for other purposes. {sic. What other purpose would there be?}

Read H.R. 5741 at http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h5741/show.  Or read the entire bill below that has been  referred to the Committee on Armed Services.

He is the sole sponsor of the bill that amounts to a two year mandatory uniformed military draft or civilian service draft.   I object. 

This is not China and this is not Israel where National military service is mandatory for any non-Arab Israeli citizen over the age of 18, although other exceptions may be made on religious, physical or psychological grounds.  Men serve three years in the IDF, while women serve two. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Israel_Defense_Forces

This is, THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!

The Great Seal of The United States, back view

Rangel took to the floor of the House to reintroduce H.R. 5741, stating, “I have introduced legislation to reinstate the draft and to make it permanent during time of war. It is H.R. 5741, and what this does is to make everyone between the ages of 18 and 42 — whether they’re men or women, whether they’re straight or gay — to have the opportunity to defend this great country whenever the president truly believes that our national security is threatened.”- http://weaselzippers.us/2010/07/28/dem-rep-charlie-rangel-d-persistent-introduces-mandatory-national-service-bill-again/

Rangle first brought the idea up in 2003 when the U.S. was at preparing to invade Iraq, and again in 2004, 2006 and 2007.  Under the guise of National Security and Homeland Defense, the President would have far reaching power into the individuals pursuit of life, liberty and happiness, and of course more government control. 

America it seems is nearly always at war.  From the War on Terror, to Iran and Afghanistan,  yet our voluntary military system works on behalf of the downtrodden and U.S. interests.  It is up to the leaders to provide the leadership to make it work as it has for hundred’s of years. We already have a VOLUNTARY MILITARY, if the government wants to set up VOLUNTARY SERVICE then so be it; NOT A MANDATORY DRAFT!

We could almost understand a bill that would require, that if you are 18 years of age, not in school, do not have a job, and not needed at home, then, and only then would any-sort of a MANDATORY service be required.  Perhaps that is Rangle’s angle, to soften things up a bit in the bill’s final passage. A t least Rangle served in the Army, which is more than our commander-in-chief can say.

Legal and non-legal citizens are currently required to register with Selective Services for men 18-25, not 42!  

Selective Service does not collect any information which would indicate whether or not you are undocumented. You want to protect yourself for future U.S. citizenship and other government benefits and programs by registering with Selective Service. Do it today.

If you are a man ages 18 through 25 and living in the U.S., then you must register with Selective Service. It’s the law. According to law, a man must register with Selective Service within 30 days of his 18th birthday. Selective Service will accept late registrations but not after a man has reached age 26. –http://www.sss.gov/

Just maybe if Selective Services verified if registrants were undocumented, we would know if they were here illegally!  Duh.  Does the Armed Services accept undocumented citizens into the military? We accepted a President with little documentation.

Recruiting standards have been lowered and more people looking for jobs are already turning to the military.  In a report from the Army, a “newly released study on the psychological health of its soldiers, “Health Promotion, Risk Reduction, and Suicide Prevention,” is brutally honest about a growing problem in the ranks. 

The rate of suicide, drug dependence and high-risk behavior among soldiers has been pushing upward in recent years, the Army acknowledged.  Read more: http://www.thenewstribune.com/2010/08/02/1286072/refreshing-military-candor-about.html#ixzz0vSfB1Is2

America remains in a declared, “state of emergency,” from the swine flu pandemic.  As it stands, if this passes- mothers, daughters, fathers and sons will be commissioned into government servitude service disrupting core families, further eroding  jobs, the economy and quite possibly affecting an entire population with mental health issues, say nothing of battlefield injury.  Certainly not to say all servicemen and women experience problems or participate in battlefield operations. 

Suggested FEMA CAMPS

BTW, just where would you house a civilian military?  Could it be all those FEMA camps we’ve been hearing about?  Sarcastically we write -on the plus side that those called into service would not be a drain on Universal Healthcare.  Inductees would be mandatorily vaccinated and medically cared for under the military budget.   They would also not be counted in unemployment levels, screwing the jobs report numbers.  You know, do whatever it takes to cook the books.

Millions of U.S. Citizens Lives Disrupted if H.R. 5741 Passes

Rangle and anyone who co-sponsors this bill needs to read,

The Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution…

The Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution officially abolished and continues to prohibit slavery and involuntary servitude, except as punishment for a crime. It was passed by the Senate on April 8, 1864, passed by the House on January 21, 1865, and adopted on December 6, 1865. It was then declared in the proclamation of Secretary of State William H. Seward on December 18 via http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/13th_Amendment_to_the_United_States_Constitution

In an attempt to yet again alter the Constitution, we are reminded of President Obama’s  challenge to democracy.  He said loud and clear, “It’s a tragedy the Constitution wasn’t radically reinterpreted to force redistribution of wealth for African Americans.”   

Civil War portrait of Abraham Lincoln; in the background is the 1863 Emancipation Proclamation, which granted freedom to slaves in states then in rebellion against the Union. Slavery was finally abolished by the 13th Amendment to the Constitution in 1865.

It would be a tragedy to see the Constitution reinterpreted to force military and civilian service for people as this bill is written.  Should  President Obama sign this legislation, President Lincoln will be rolling at the thought that Obama swore his Presidential Oath on his Bible.

President Obama, regarding government contracts said that his administration will stop outsourcing to private contractors many services that should be performed by government employees.  Again, making the government bigger at the expense of the private sector. http://www.foxnews.com/politics/first100days/2009/03/04/obama-pledge-cut-government-waste/100days/

No matter how big the government gets, individuals do matter, even in Obamatimes.  It is the private sector that has spurned capitalism, it is the Obama administration that is relinquishing and further eroding free market economics.  Admitting that he is not following the daily” fluctuations” and concerns on Wall Street while millions loose their house, savings, jobs and shirts is ludicrous

Bush’s economic policies were holding their own ground until he was faced with Barney Frank’s Frannie/Freddie and the mortgage crisis that was helped in part by Obama’s ACORN, and he lost his marbles with an idiotic statement like, “I had to abandon free market principles to save the free market.”   Oh, President Bush, you broke my heart.

I recall it was President Bill Clinton era Federal regulations that set up the housing crisis that started this slide.  Most certainly every single member of Congress is responsible for allowing to ignore it.

Every time someone in the Obama administration opens their mouth regarding fiscal policy, the markets tank-so shut up already.  Obama made the commitment with more bailouts, and budgets lined with more pork continuing to ignore his own campaign promises.  

While Blagojevich and Burris have been found guilty in the court of public opinion, we can look back and see Obama himself was and is well versed in performing the quid pro quo and pork he has promised to eliminate. http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/chi-0705030035may03,0,3860794.story  “”My philosophy was that, if money was being distributed, then it would be inappropriate for me to not get my share for my district.”

Our president, who seemingly is so set on having the government responsible for every detail of our lives has forgotten that you don’t need to have a “citizen army” or “citizen service” in order to get something done.  That “All communities to build upon the strength of our nation’s diversity of ideas, experience, and perspectives as we unite to serve. WE ARE READY to meet the challenges of our time. We are ready to do our part in America’s timeless quest for a more perfect union, and I am ready to begin now by adding my name to this Declaration,” reads more like a sign up sheet to join the Nazi Party than it does to offer a lending hand to our country. http://www.bethechangeaction.org/pledge/sign  Why anyone signs this pledge is beyond me.  Plenty of people volunteer without signing a pledge from Obama. 

Amazingly, it is our tax dollars that are funding a ton of national service with a hefty budget.  http://www.nationalservice.gov/about/budget/index.asp  Check out http://www.volunteeringinamerica.gov/ 

I am not completely heartless and actually do volunteer and make donations- which I think are no longer tax deductible under Obama.  Anyways, a few years ago a dear friend of ours prepared to celebrate her milestone 40th birthday on March 4th.  “I wondered what legacy, a simple woman like me with no fame, no wealth and no children, could leave. ”  In response to this, she looked to where her fortunes does lie – within dear friends and family scattered across the country, and asked all to help create a shared legacy.  To collectively, open our eyes and really LOOK at those around us…and to reach out in kindness.  The tradition continues this year, as it will for many years ahead.  Until we don’t need reminded to slow down and care for our neighbors.

She challenges each of us, on March 4th, to March Forth into your communities and give of yourselves.  So, dear friends, March Forth into your communities — act, commit, speak up, reach out, donate, give of yourself.  Learn more by following her new blog http://wemarch4th.blogspot.com/ or check out the original website at http://MarchForth.us to see how people have lived The March in past years. 

Remember, you don’t have to organize any big outings or large donations.  You don’t have to sign on the dotted line to be an Obama Community Organizer,  join the Army or commit to National Service to do something nice for someone else.  No matter whom you voted for, the date March 4th is used to pause from our busy schedules to remember that we are indeed part of a larger family and community. 
 
The site says, “March 4th is more than just a day…it’s our legacy.”  The Obama administration is more than just four years…it could be the legacy that destroys democracy with complete reliance on hand outs from government, rather than the willing hand of a neighbor.  
One individual person made a difference to come up with March Forth on March fourth.  It might be that Hillary Clinton was right in saying, “It takes a village.”  It shouldn’t take a government.
 

You might also want to check out March Forth Day from Gevity who gives all employees the day off to run errands for your soul. It is not a personal day, it’s a personal fulfillment day!

mama-cover-299x382

Of all the brain washing crap we have been subject to, just in time for Christmas or should we be politically correct and say this holiday season, comes the children’s book, Why Mama Voted for Obama http://littledemocrats.net/Obama.html  http://www.amazon.com/Why-Mommy-Democrat-Jeremy-Zilber/dp/0978668804  http://news.aol.com/elections-blog/tag/Jeremy+Zilber/ 

“Why Mommy is a Democrat” also by Jeremy Zilber looks like an attempt to reach out to the two-year-old bloc. “Using plain and non-judgmental language,” the book’s Web site reads, “along with warm and whimsical illustrations, this colorful 28-page paperback depicts the Democratic principles of fairness, tolerance, peace, and concern for the well-being of others.” Of course, “Democratic candidates and party organizations” will receive part of the book’s profits.

These swipes at The Republican Party might go over the head of kids, but not parents and not over mine. 

If you love your mama, thank her for having you because Obama has promised to continue partial birth abortions so as not to ‘saddle anyone with a baby.’  He is an enemy to unborn children.  http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/77500/barack_hussein_obama_jr_defends_partialbirth.html  There isn’t anything warm and fuzzy about that.

Laying further claim in brain washing, “we are already globalists-in-training and will be full-fledged ones in the not-too-distant future.” http://whitelocust.wordpress.com/2008/11/18/expatriation-in-situ-by-baron-bodissey/  Globalist, me?  No, I am an American and have documentation to prove it in any court of law in the U.S.A. Maybe Obama is in fact the ultimate Globalist in not only his genealogy but his ideals as well.  Our Constitution doesn’t allow for a Globalist as President only a qualified citizen at birth or natural born citizen.  I have little faith that Obama was born in Hawaii, the theory seems to be leaning toward Kenya, far across the globe giving him dual citizenship and making him ineligible and testing the Constitution in the process.  

On last month anniversary of The People’s Temple mass suicide, http://www.thoughtsaloud.com/2008/11/19/marxism-religion-and-kool-aid/ I  I am reminded of the power leaders have over followers and blind faith.  The Nation magazine reported at the time, “The temple was as much a left-wing political crusade as a church. Jones message of socialist redemption was so strong it lulled more than 900 people to “drink the kool-aid.” of stupidity.

Knowledge is power and it is becoming more apparent how such faith in the Obama kool-aid that the government is going to everything for you with a vision of change.  It seems that a new world order with promises of democratic principles, may be coming like it or not, with citizens looking to the Obama administration so solve all that ails them.  All the new faces we were promised with  “Change,” looks like the same ole, same ole with the Clinton and Daschle old school politicians of the world back in power.

Gone will be the day of working hard in America when there is no incentive to do so.   The influences on the youngest members of our society, our children should be mindful that working hard is the best road to success.  The idea that a child’s educational experience will be enhanced by a mandatory two year commitment to community service is a disservice to our youth- say nothing of the 40 year old crowd. 

All kool-aid has been removed from the pantry for the time being.  We will be serving melted snow that is abundant thanks to global climate change.  Snow contains no melamine or artificial ingredients, unless you count what the dog may add to it. 

Oh yeah, Merry Christmas.  This book will not be under our tree and Santa better not bring it either.
