H.R. 393 - Mandatory National Service for all persons within the US aged 18-42

With all the new talk about Obama's mandatory national service for high school students, college students as well as the incentive based service of retired people and those over 55 - maybe we ought to take another look at H.R. 393


I always thought H.R. 393 was something that would remain in the back wings of Congress and only be made into law IF it became necessary (for example, if WWIII started). Now I'm not so sure.

With Obama and Emmanuel calling for mandatory national service, I would not be surprised if they attempt to push this bill through congress.

H.R. 393 would require mandatory national service from ALL persons aged 18 to 42.

Neither of these two birds would ever dare put on a U.S. Marine uniform to serve America.

Once you put that uniform on it is trouble !

Mandatory Service

Takes the meaning out of service.

I quit the NHS in high school because there was mandatory service -- but I did my community service anyway.

One guy I know ...

... is all for it, but he said he's not going to work, he's going to buy his way out of it. I just looked at him, the hypocrite asshole. I'm sure they'll try to tuck this one deep inside another bill and hope no one notices.

Every man & woman who's able should probably bug the daylights out of his & her servants on the Hill regarding this stupid resolution.

Thanks for sharing

I had no idea about this. Damn... I hope it doesn't pass. The Dems are supposedly anti-war, so let's hope they wouldn't.

Maybe this will prove helpful.

Performing a THOMAS query every now & then is good for the soul. In case you don't know about or consider it, accessing govtrack.com from time to time seems a really good way to monitor government shenanigans.

The Most Decorated U.S. Marine Weighs In

USMC General Smedley Darlington Butler, twice awarded the Congressional Medal of honor and most decorated Marine at time of his death:

Jules Archer in The Plot to Seize the White House (1973) notes that Butler told reporters:

"All we soldiers are asking is that the nation give us the same break that is being given the manufacturers, the bankers, the industrialists. . . . Jimmie [Van Zandt] (VFW Leader) and I are going around the country trying to educate the soldiers out of the sucker class." p. 129

In an October 1939 broadcast introduced by Senator Clark, he urged the mothers of America not to let their sons be sent overseas as "cannon fodder":

Now - you Mothers, particularly! The only way you can resist all this war hysteria and beating of tom-toms is by asserting the love you bear your boys. When you listen to some well worded, some well-delivered war speech, just remember it's nothing but sound. No amount of sound can make up to you for the loss of your boy. After you've heard one of those speeches and your blood's all hot and you want to bite somebody like Hitler .- go upstairs to where your boy's asleep.. . . Look at him. Put your hand on that spot on the back of his neck. The place you used to love to kiss when he was a baby. Just rub it a little. You won't wake him up, he knows it's you. Just look at his strong, fine young body because only the best boys are chosen for war. Look at this splendid young creature who's part of yourseW then close you eyes for a moment and I'll tell you what can happen....

Somewhere-five thousand miles from home. Night. Darkness. Cold. A drizzling rain. The noise is terrific. All Hell has broken loose. A star shell burst in the air. Its unearthly flare lights up the muddy field. There's a lot of tangled rusty barbed wires out there and a boy hanging over them-his stomach ripped out, and he's feebly calling for help and water. His lips are white and drawn. He's in agony.

There's your boy. The same boy who's lying in bed tonight. The same boy who trusts you.. . . Are you going to run out on him? Are you going to let someone beat a drum or blow a bugle and make him chase after it? Thank God, this is a Democracy and by your voice and your vote you can save your boy.

This bill, combined with

This bill, combined with anything remotely resembling gun control, can send Obama AND his party flying out of office on greased subway rails.
If Obama follows up on any of his moronic new police state ideas, he's a lame duck immediately after Election Day. The economy alone will be enough to hurt him badly.

Look for Sarah Palin and a GOP Congress in 2012...the tea leaves are settling that way.

I wouldn't doubt that the GOP set itself up to fail this past election.They knew bush was unfavorable and with that the republican party was doomed.Why not set it up so when BO comes into this disaster,he won't be able to turn it around and then the GOP regains power in 2012.

Did you notice overnight how, after Election Day, FOX switched it's tune to "we're going into a depression". after months of denying we were even in a recession?

suprised jim mcdermott of seattle can get away with this

Given how anti nwo seattle is...very suprised mcdermott can be one of the two originating sponsors of this bill.

This would be the perfect bill to get everyone under 42 to hate the democrats

Are you basing your "seattle is anti-nwo" on the fake riots??

My thoughts

One of the groups with alot of clout able to make and change laws "mothers against drunk drivers" I guarantee you piss of enough mothers you will see TSHTF. A mother lion protecting her cubs. If this group is educated and mobilized you will see action. I would like to see the parents of Pat Tillman get involved in something like this. I can't find the letter they wrote about their sons death but it gave me chills.

We need somthing like MAW mothers against wars. Then stand back it ain't gonna be pretty.

H.R. 393

Just like the bailout, our voices will count for nothing and it will be rammed through. All I can say is over my dead body, don't even go near my kids or my grandkids. The ones who object will be protected by every fiber of my being. As far as being a retired person all I can say is f*ck you, I wouldn't lift a finger for corporate USA. I pray at least once a day or more that it comes crashing down.
