    This challenge is not to the US and Obama. It is to Kenya.
    Actually, its refreshing to be held up as an example of what is possible.

    I think I still have my Bill Clinton wrist watch. I'm sure it needs a new battery.

    Based on the proposed "civilian national security force", which shirt do you think looks better, brown or black?

    Seriously (I hope) the nation will continue to exist as we know it and head in the same direction as it always has and continue to exist with all it's flaws. It is not a democracy, it is a democratic republic.

    And it's a much better place than it was when "all men are created equal" meant all free white male landowners. JMHO. And maybe our new President's opinion too.

    Interesting that you should bring up the 'Civilian National Security Force".

    Here is a place to read more about it, and an excerpt of the plan:



    From "The American Thinker..."


    Except of Obama Speech, July 2, 2008 in Colorado Springs:

    "We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded." (emphasis added)

    The immediate context for that amazing statement was a preview of parts of his plan to vastly expand community service opportunities for Americans of nearly all ages. He said,
    "People of all ages, stations, and skills will be asked to serve."
    The range of his community service initiatives was outlined in an earlier American Thinker article. In his campaign document entitled "The Blueprint for Change: Barack Obama's Plan For America," Obama's "Service" section runs a close second to "Education" in complexity. But, with his Colorado Springs' statement, it grabbed first place in its projected costs to taxpayers. Obama did the cost projection himself.

    He plans to double the Peace Corps' budget by 2011, and expand AmeriCorps, USA Freedom Corps, VISTA, YouthBuild Program, and the Senior Corps. Plus, he proposes to form a Classroom Corps, Health Corps, Clean Energy Corps, Veterans Corps, Homeland Security Corps, Global Energy Corps, and a Green Jobs Corps. Here a corps - there a corps - everywhere a corps corps.

    So it made sense in Colorado Springs when he said his call to community service "will be a central cause of my presidency." He couldn't be clearer in signaling his intentions, including a Social Investment Fund Network to link local non-profits with the federal government.

    The entire plan is breathtaking in its scope. But it does not, as at least one internet writer has suggested, portend a "giant police force." It would be easier to rebut if it did. As it is, it's silly stuff born of naively fanciful dreams."

    Oh Lady, are you suggesting that we males start questioning our founding fathers?

    This will solve all our national problems. Everyone becomes a Federal employee. No unemployment, no health care crisis, and with everyone in TSP the stock market takes off like a rocket. Crank up the printing presses, we are going to need a lot of that green stuff to pay all these folks.

    I do not agree with the original limitations of white male, but a citizen landowner or broader yet one who pays Federal income tax and does not receive any subsidy or special "gov. loans"/bail out from tax paying citizens. Eliminate that group and now you have a better pool of voters that will do what is right for the Country.

    I still have a problem with folk that get to vote while getting the "free money" and influencing the law makers. If they would give me billions of dollars I would throw some major campaign contributions their way. Kind of sounds like money laundering.
