Kind of hard to argue with that when you put it that way...but.....on the opposite side you must look deeper and this what bothers those of us who read futher and are not satisfied with taking a POLITICIANS word at face value.

Besides, whats wrong with asking kids to get involved with helping people in their own community rather than sitting on their butts in front of the television playing video games?
Maybe if kids had to get involved in community projects when they are young they will learn that the world is larger than themselves. Who knows, they may even become productive members of society.
Read this, incredibly it's posted on the Daily Kos: "We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives 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."
America has never had a civilian military force. Canada, Britain, France, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, and Australia have never had civilian military forces. However, Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Kim Jong II, Mao and Saddam had civilian military forces. Am I being too partisan by simply requesting that Obama not have a civilian national security force in America's streets, no matter the good intentions.
Am I wrong to suggest that these "CORPS" are really youth indoctrination centers and nothing but the beginning of something more.
