I’d be lying if I told you I wasn’t very, very, VERY concerned about this:
When has a Civilian National Security Force ever been a good thing?
CNSFs like the one Obama and Emanuel are talking about have been proposed or implemented in places like Cuba, the Soviet Union, China, Venezuela, North Korea and East Germany. Why on earth would we want to mimic countries like those? I don’t understand their reasoning. Have Bush’s policies failed to keep us safe for the past eight years?
I don’t care if it’s ODS to strongly object to plans like this one. Considering Obama’s radical background; especially his friendship with unrepentant terrorists, William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, the concern is justified.
The time has come for conservatives to learn how to organize like the loony left. Their side just won. The inmates are now running the asylum. We 48 percenters are going to have to become a lot more vocal, which I realize goes against our very natures. But we can’t sit at home and allow these dangerous policies to be implemented. I’m talking about nationwide mass demonstrations if anything like this, or the fairness doctrine, (or any number of other things) are attempted.

Via Atlas Shrugs, a comment from Pat Dollard’s worth reading:
I am a student of history. Professionally. I have written 15 books in six languages, and have studied it all my life. I think there is something monumentally large afoot, and I do not believe it is just a banking crisis, or a mortgage crisis, or a credit crisis. Yes these exist, but they are merely single facets on a very large gemstone that is only now coming into a sharper focus.
Something of historic proportions is happening. I can sense it because I know how it feels, smells, what it looks like, and how people react to it. Yes, a perfect storm may be brewing, but there is something happening within our country that has been evolving for about ten – fifteen years. The pace has dramatically quickened in the past two.
We demand and then codify into law the requirement that our banks make massive loans to people we know they can never pay back? Why?
We learn just days ago that the Federal Reserve, which has little or no real oversight by anyone, has “loaned” two trillion dollars (that is $2,000,000,000,000) over the past few months, but will not tell us to whom or why or disclose the terms. That is our money. Yours and mine. And that is three times the 700B we all argued about so strenuously just this past September. Who has this money? Why do they have it? Why are the terms unavailable to us? Who asked for it? Who authorized it? I thought this was a government of “we the people,” who loaned our powers to our elected leaders. Apparently not.
We have spent two or more decades intentionally de-industrializing our economy. Why?
We have intentionally dumbed down our schools, ignored our history, and no longer teach our founding documents, why we are exceptional, and why we are worth preserving. Students by and large cannot write, think critically, read, or articulate. Parents are not revolting, teachers are not picketing, school boards continue to back mediocrity. Why?
