I thought I had pretty much covered this subject in an earlier blog, but comments made by Obama recently opened my eyes to another group he plans to develop. This is not just another volunteer group like AmeriCorp. Here is how Obama describes it:
“We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded.”
I have several questions. First of all, what the hell is the National Guard’s job? I know President Bush sent many of them over to Iraq which should never have happened, but Obama is going to end that war so they’ll be coming home. Secondly, what does he mean by “civilian security force”? Are these a bunch of untrained activists running around? (I’m sorry that would be “community organizers”.) And since leftists abhor guns are they going to be trolling around with cans of paint to throw? What exactly is a militia and if the militia is made up of spoiled rotten, do nothing kids will we really feel safe? Of course that question is dumb because any group that Obama throws together to guard America will actually be assigned the job of stripping our rights and acting as Big Brother and will have nothing to do with security. And lastly, if Obama plans to fund this like the current military, one of two things will happen: 1. The real military will be shrunk down to at least half or 2. The deficit will go even higher. Forget about $860 billion in new spending. You’ll have to add on at least another $500 billion. But he won’t be raising our taxes. Right. Oh wait, that was so selfish of me. I should gladly hand my money over to the government. Silly me.
