IMPERIAL, Calif. — Ten minutes into arrant mayhem in this town near the Mexican border, and the gunman, a disgruntled Iraq war veteran, has already taken out two people, one slumped in his desk, the other covered in blood on the floor.
The responding officers — eight teenage boys and girls, the youngest 14 — face tripwire, a thin cloud of poisonous gas and loud shots — BAM! BAM! — fired from behind a flimsy wall. They move quickly, pellet guns drawn and masks affixed.
“United States Border Patrol! Put your hands up!” screams one in a voice cracking with adolescent determination as the suspect is subdued.

First, I'd like to see Obama get the 'full force of the law'' for NOT registering, as the LAW clearly states that every U.S. male registers at the age of 18. He illegally alluded that registration (defiant?) until August 2008, when realizing this could bite him come election day.
I would take this to the Supreme Court if they tried this with my kid. I've never seen a legal reference for this, unless that judge you listened to is on your state's Supreme Court. That's the ONLY way I see this as anything close to legal.
First let me be clear. The Judge first started out by saying that this letter was supposed to be confidentual and not for the public or media consumption. That he called into this radio show because he trusted the host and simply wanted to get this info out to all parents but didn't want to be a distraction from the letter itself.
He was sharing his concerns without stating outright that the court system will be used to force those who will not be able to afford and do not have the means to defend against false mischief charges to take plea bargan deals by serving community service with "United We Serve". He basically made it very clear throughout the short interview that if they did not choice to serve community service with the courts recommanded (Corp) and wanted to move forward with their cases that they (the courts) are to use the full pressure of the law to get them to except a plea by serving with United We Serve.
I've already called as many of my friends whom are parents (mostly mothers) and sent out emails of what I heard along with the videos of Barack and Michelle making it very clear that "Everybody" is being asked to help out. I also included Emanuels 2008 video clip stating that all youth with be "Required" to serve and lastly the video of Michelle at the beginning of the year saying "Everybody" will be "Required" to work within their communities to everybody I have in my contact list that are parents.
I will say that I Did Not send the info out as an ALERT! but instead simpy sent them to everybody as an informative email for them to decide how to handle this best with their children.
I personally appreciate whistle-blowers getting the info out weather they be police with the MIAC reports, Pastors with the government letters saying that their tax exampt will be in jeopardy if they don't direct their flocks to obey the government during a marshal law event and Judges who are parents and understand the workings of the court system and how it can be used to manipulate the public.

Wow, you guys have really overlooked this. The message is that we should help each other out, instead of sitting on our asses and expecting things to happen. If there is something we want or need done, we have to work to achieve it. There is nothing wrong with volunteering our time to help our communities and our neighbors.

I think that it is more accurate to say that the government is facilitating community service.
There is nothing wrong with this.
The only purpose is to bring people together who have similar interests and to help people who wish to realize their own initiatives.
I see no reason whatsoever to malign this effort.

for many of us on minimum wage, there's not much time left at the end of the day, and hardly any extra money left at the end of the month.
However, I know of some places that have waaay to much money left over at the end of every month; here's a list of corporations who make billions of dollars of profit each year...
They can give you money, resources, food, products, they have everything we'd need to build community centers, homeless shelters, playgrounds, hospitals, schools,...
