QuoteYou don't remember the CCC, either, do you?  The Civilian Conservation Corps  was set up to provide flood control, forestry and soil conservation.  It ran from 1933 to 1942 when the majority of our young men were serving in the armed forces.  It never became compulsory.

i remember my grandad talkin about it...I think he blasted tunnels up in washington working for them.


Quoteour young people need a purpose.  Without purpose, they turn to the elements that will provide excitement in their dull lives.  Why not provide them with a purpose while paying them to do it?

exactly!

QuoteWhere if you were of the right age you had to register and be classified.

both my boys had to register when they turned 18....ones fixin to turn 30 friday and the other is 28. I was thinkin they still had to for some reason.

  You know what....you seem like a decent intelligent person and we are just gonna butt heads on the subject of politics lol. I enjoy a good discussion but I really don't take politics as serious as you do. I really figure it's just SSDD and in four years we will have a new one to bitch about but it really won't affect my day to day livin one bit more than I let it :) I think Obama is just the "cool new toy" of the moment. He'll stick around as long as we let him, won't do anymore damage than we let him, and he'll fade away just like every other "new thing" does.

  I don't want to judge anybody anymore than I want them to judge me....but I AM human and when it comes to politics that is the nature of the beast :P So that's bad on me.

  Im not lookin to Obama for anything. Or anybody else in the government for that matter. Has the whole world forgot that yeah he can STOP bills by veto but he's basically the headless horseman when it comes to pushin things he wants. Nothin happens unless Congresss lets it...and yeah I know pelosi whatever....I would just bet you there are enough people on both sides of the aisle who do not want the very same things you all and a lot of other people don't want to keep things from getting anywhere NEAR what you all are scared of. But then I still have faith in common sense.......

I could go into a long argument about all the people sayin Oh I'm a great christian in one breath and then very next breath sayin as long as it gets you what you need the ends justify the means but I won't........oh hell I already did.  :P

  Changed the rules so they could try to get away with somthing that is against the law would be my guess. I've been hearin a LOT of basically people saying the ends justify the means.....no it doesn't.

  It's my understandin he said they weren't goin to prosecute the agents who carried out the interrogations because they were just following orders. The people who WROTE the "rules" are a whole other kettle of fish. Kind of like the "special rules of engagement" they wrote at Ruby Ridge that needlessly escalated and killed uneccesarily.

  Geez dude do you EVER let a little light in? Everything in the world is not a giant conspiracy to make you do stuff you don't wnat to do.
  What the hells wrong with helpin kids go to college in return for helpin some old lady seal up her windows or clean her gutters or paintin a playground?
