First of all, it needs to be said: Obama, get your hands off our kids. Seriously. Stop the fascist recruitment. It's sick. Obama said he was going to build a civilian army — and he is using our children. How? He uses the classrooms, as I exclusively broke the story here: Organizing for America recruitment in the classroom.
But AmeriCorps (can Obama pronounce the second syllable?) is the machinery for his youth army. And there is huge dough behind it — yours and mine. A year ago, Obama's putsch of hope and change rammed the huge “Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education Act” (GIVE act), HR 1388, through the Senate:
He tied his FEMA Scheme for the Civilian Security Defense Force into this legislation, but now they’re called “National Volunteer Reserve Corps.” This creates images of the Peace Corps, but it is something far more sinister. In addition, the legislation is targeting foster kids, disadvantaged teens and more specifically BLACK colleges and universities. Reading the provisions, it smacks of a program tailor-made for ACORN. It is a bill that has reverse discrimination all over it as it is NOT designed for middle-class Americans to benefit from — regardless of your race.
Then in June, AmeriCorps was hit with another scandal, when the AmeriCorps Inspector General (IG) accused a prominent Obama supporter of misusing AmeriCorps grant money. This prominent Obama supporter has to pay back more than $400,000 of that grant money.
In response, Obama abruptly fired the AmeriCorps IG, Gerald Walpin. Obama sent letters to House and Senate leaders informing them that he was firing Walpin, effective 30 days from the date of the letters. (More here on Americorps — Obama's civilian army, mandatory "volunteerism"):

Hello Jughead. Although I agree that Obama is doing things that I consider downright creepy, let me help you out: You're going to get ripped because you're quoting from pamelagellar.com. Just a hint. ATS looks sweet but it's a snake pit and a den of lions all rolled into one, and if they cannot argue with your point, they'll attack your source.
It's best to get more than one source. The MSM used to be a good source, but you can forget that now. Good luck, rookie!
“Here’s the idea,” the candidate explained. “If you join the reserve, you’ll receive some basic training. And when your city or state needs you, you’ll get the call.”
Youth Service America National Partners include: Arab American institute the DOD–WTF Teach For America-this is the Americorps group that recruit across college campuses One World Youth project and a host of others, NWF, Youth Venture Earth day–but then there are the good ones like Hillel campus and girl scouts and campfire girls. Have the girl scouts been infiltrated?
Right. Denying ignorance or embracing it. Nothing in between?
Something is very wrong with all of it, and not questioning it, isn't denying Ignorance but embracing it.
