Well somebody had mentioned Americorps and I'd never shared that experience with ATS. I volunteered 4 months, 40 hours a week and sometimes more.
You just had to be there to see how little work these 2 americorps workers did in exchange for $8-10 an hour (30-40 hour weeks) and paid for college.
But yes, we are on the subject of Brownshirts.
I agree, this is unprecedented and scary. My ideas on it sort of go off on a tangent, as usual. But it reminds me of Ron Pauls book and his talking
about how income tax was a form of forced labor (as you spend half your year at work paying for the taxes). But this "mandatory service" IS nothing
but forced labor! lol.
I figure the 18-25 bracket isn't making enough dough for their taxes to be worth it anymore, so the gov. will just go with the forced labor. Just
like the military, people will join this for economic reasons as well.
I'm not really worried about 18-25 year olds as a military force though. Who's idea is that? They'd get bulldozed in a combat scenario... right?
It just seems sort of ridiculous, and irresponsible to put "security demands" on a bunch of people right out of high school. I mean you have to
have older people in there to lead them.
Sigh, I'm still 25. Maybe they'll put me in charge. I'm sure I'm an expert tactician.. sigh.
