That is ridiculous.
A "Youth Corps" is just a polite way to say "Engineering Nazis."
Its the same way the Third Reich brainwashed its youth, with "Youth Corps."
Obama can take it and shove it for all I care, and my children will not serve in any such thing.

Same here. Education should still be the formost on Americas mind and instilled on our youth. It should be taken away from the money hungry capitals and given freely for those youths serious enough to go.
I was always college minded and willing in my youth but found so many obsticles in my way with not qualifing for finacial aid when I needed it most.
Now I have degrees and want the same for my children in the next generations and am fearful what will happen by then with rising costs and now this presidency getting involved.
Something needs to change, but is that change what really needs to happen?

I had to pay for my college education ... that hasn't landed me a job.. and I have 13 years of experience.
But this sounds more like the conditioning for a Obama-Nazi America. Or perhaps the beginning of this "Civil Defense Force" Obama talked about.
