Wow. From McClatchy-Tribune News Service, a pretty liberal org: http://bulletin.aarp.org/states/il/articles/obama_outlines_plan_for_national_service.html The Defense budget gets a #@&load of money, nearly half a trillion a year. Obama wants another half a trillion a year for some sort of "civilian national security force"?! Holy #@^%! Get them jackboots on the streets, eh? And for all the libtards that think this is good, just imagine - George W. Bush can do this as well, and sooner. Would you be happy with that? Imagine the current administration siezing the treasury and announcing a "civilian national security force" and arming them with half a trillion dollars of guns and ammo.
