BROWNSHIRTS BILL UPDATE:
Thanks to Six Meat Buffet:
The MANDATORY VOLUNTEERISM part of this bill is not gone, they just moved it to house bill HR 1444. The bill text is here. The mandatory language and “four year service academy” language are all back.
Find and call your reps here.
UPDATE: It passed. The Government can now force your kids into mandatory "service."
Added to the bill in the Senate version, from Gateway Pundit:
The Senate on Friday killed an amendment that would exclude funding for ACORN in Obama's Youth Brigades bill (53-43). The Senate bill will provide "$5.7 billion to aid 250,000 volunteers across the country in the arenas of health care, energy, environment and education."
It also bans any expression of religion, other than Fundamentalist Liberalism, the religion that will be taught and enforced. (image link)
