    1052 to 95 that is a .09 acceptance ratio and it passes anyway. Ut ohhhhhhh time to change the government. Hide your kids as soon as you can. They will train them to come to your door to collect the guns cause they know it will be hard for you to shoot your own kids! The government will be able to develop spies, moles and snitches that would even rat out their parents. Directly out of 1984!!

    i am not communist, nor am i particularly pro-communist, but seriously dont just label anything obviously anti-american communist. communism is not the polar opposite of democracy, and labelling anything offensive to yourself like that is simply the hate and dislkie talking.

    that being said, i am also against this bill, as we cannot afford the costs to pay for it, and the language is vauge enough to scare me.

    Screw your bill, your snitch citizens and the $6 billion it cost for volunteers?

    How many government controlled things flourish? Before we give this bill great praise, let’s see what they do to GM, the economy, and the health care system. I trust NONE of them. In case you haven’t notice our country is far left of center as in progressive.
    Each day more of our freedoms diminish.
    Take a look at H. J. Res. 5. Read it and ponder that one.

    I totally agree, but what can we do to stop this insanity? They aren’t paying attention to what we want. I think it is time for another
    march on Washington. Something to disrupt them and get them to stop and listen to the voters. This is no longer a government by the people, for the people, and of the people. Have you read “Common Sense.” It’s a must read.

  • dudezilla 06/14/2009 8:33pm

    Uhhh, so i’ve seen no questions about who or what this “Corporation” (and yes it’s always capitalized, go read the bill)

    i.e. “Carrying out such other activities as the Corporation may prohibit”
    Subtitle C of title I (42 U.S.C. 12571 et seq.)

    go look it’s right there and all over the bill

    what is this “Corporation”, basically what are they referring to in the bill. If any one knows the respond to this comment and if know one knows then… well that’s bad

    try this out, I was talking to friends at a college doing the legal research for the Fed Reps… The submittal included this…" I don’t know if the data was classified or not, as I was getting it straight from professors and grad students and some lawyers,,," But the words include things like: 1- Can be punishible with fines or community service, failure to comply could include forfeiture of assets no then but not limited to 3000.00USD, and or possible confinement of 30-90 days which will be paid for by the offender, and may include community, or professional service during the extent of confinement.

    they had alot more stuff but this part was the one that scared me. Voluntary, yet can be punishible by fines or assets and jail!!! thats not voluntary, it’s like the IRS, they say it’s voluntary, but if you don’t do it, you have the “option” to face penalty.

    They will not get my vote in next election , if we are all still free to vote !

  • itssunshinexo 07/06/2009 8:32am

    I like how one of the failed amendments had something to do with Acorn…did anyone else notice that? So ACORN is able to have access to these funds without investigation into their fraud? If they really did nothing wrong, have them open their books and we can move on from it…

  • JBavet 07/10/2009 3:09pm

    It is hard to believe that the Chappaquiddick Kid and drunken bum Kennedy is still around! The sheeple of Massachusetts must be real stupid to keep electing this bum to office.

  • swotli 07/16/2009 4:23am

    One more program to blow billions of dollars we do not have. Congress should be focusing on fixing the economy not passing these ridiculous
    mult-billion dollar bills we can’t afford. But then, when did this congress start listening to us. This is no longer a government by the people, for the people, of the people. It is a government by the government, of the government, for the government. It is time for term limits for everyone. Can’t wait for the next election. It should be a blood bath for everyone up for re-election.

  • rj32 07/23/2009 11:21pm

    they should include all youth in these programs. being ‘disadvantaged’ or ‘advantaged’ shouldn’t mean anyone is entitled to more or less. young people need to interact with each other in the community without being segregated.

  • FallenMorgan 08/16/2009 6:05pm

    It sounds like they took the fascism out of it. It’s not forcing anybody to work, like with the original bill.

  • reyapxat213 10/18/2010 7:32am

    The key here is what ever the intent..the US Treasury is OUT OF MONEY….Stop Spending money you (Congress) do not have. Congress should volunteer to balance the budget.

  • MenloPeet 11/16/2010 1:46pm

    Well a lot of you on here who are against this bill because it’s some form or government institutionalism are forgetting about one thing, the MILITARY. I’m not sure why it is that so many people are against our government creating opportunities for young people to get involved in their community while turning the other cheek when it comes to the MIC.
