Well I tried

Thursday, December 4th, 2008

Well I tried, but for whatever reason my comment and even 1/2 my comment wouldn’t post on the Bellingham Herald Political blog posting Bellinghammer: Obama shouldn’t force young Americans into service.

So in response to this comment

Why does a Google News search on the terms “Civilian Defence Corps” or “Universal Civilian Defense Training” come back with the result “did not match any documents”?

Could it be that this is just one more fabricated ‘issue’, that exist nowhere except in the fevered imagination of paranoid rightwing extremists?

and this comment

I see the words “community service” on the Obama website screen captures not “Civilian Defence Corps” or “Universal Civilian Defense Training”.

both by Steve Lydolph of Washington Outsider, I offer both parts of my originally single piece of work.

Part I

Google “civilian national security force,”  You’ll find numerous references where you can read or even hear these exact words come straight from Sen. Obama’s mouth.

“We cannot continue to rely only 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.”

Prior to the election, there was no stack of articles demanding that Sen. Obama make clear to voters, both the objectives and the funding source for this massive undertaking?

Part II

And while I am most certainly displeased with the lack of coverage on this, I am also most certainly disgusted with active Democrats such as yourself trying to hide this as you’ve attempted here with your flip comments about this being “fabricated ‘issue’, that exist nowhere except in the fevered imagination of paranoid rightwing extremists”

This issue was fabricated in the mind of your Democratic Party candidate and our soon to be president; not those of us on the right. Americans don’t need stumbling excuses and misdirection; we need a real explanation from President-Elect Obama.


And since this is going up on my blog, I’ll throw in another 2 cents.  Since local Democrats pushed so darn hard in this county to get Barack Obama elected, they might want to go the extra mile now and help us know who we just elected.

And here is a link to the original post Civilian Defense Farce at Adventures of a Bellinghamer.  He has a generous list of links in the post also.

Or an earlier original post Obama’s ‘civilian national security force’ — huh? from Menaltarma, another local.
