As I have posted on multiple occasions, [The Obama Voter, Obama More ‘Lincolnesque’ Than I Thought, and A Study of the Brain] the average Obama voter is not exactly swimming in the deep end of the gene pool. Yes, there are so-called intellectuals who voted for Obama. The reason I call them so-called, is that most of that group may be well-versed in say Horticulture, and to this I say, “you can bring a whore to culture, but that doesn’t make her an intellectual“.
Anyway, the group on which I want to focus for this blog is the 18-25 year old demographic.
Obama targeted this group, because they are so politically astute; the pulse of America, right? He advertised in their video games, and you could see his face on NBA ’08 on sideline banners, and as you drove through the streets in Grand Theft Auto (fitting).
It was impossible to log onto the internet without seeing the faces of Obama and Biden, and that irritating mantra, “The Change We Need“. Obama had Facebook, LinkedIn, and all other social networks covered, and even I, The Black Sphere was invited to join ObamaNation, which I less than respectfully declined.
Based on Obama’s marketing machine, 18-25 year olds came out in droves to support him. It was blind faith, most putting more faith in “change”, than they do in God. They were like ‘Stepford Wives’, chanting “Change We Need…Change We Need“. But as the saying goes, “be careful what you wish for, you just might get it“.
Rahm Emanuel said recently (see video) that 18-25 year olds will be required to serve three months (maybe more) in service to the Motherland. Unpaid service. He then said that he wouldn’t quibble if somebody wanted it to be four months. I say, why not a year? Two years? Just leave it vague and see how much pressure it takes to burst the pipe?
And if that is not enough, president-elect Obama has said that he believes we need a civilian force, that is equivalent to the regular military! News alert, president-elect Obama, it’s called The National Guard. But you obviously have something different in mind. So who would run this ragtag group of Blackberry bandits? Community Organizers?
This began sounding very Orwellian to me. But then I decided to take a kinder, gentler look at this proposal by Der Fuhrer
Obama. My conclusion: Obama really is a great pimp, like I said in Taxacious
This is brilliant! Obama puts millions of his youngest “stable” to work, for free, and the benefit goes to him. He doesn’t have to put them on unemployment or pay them. This is some serious pimping folks!
And as for the civilian military idea, is Obama attempting to wrestle real control from the generals? I say yes, because American generals likely don’t have a lot of respect for their new Kenyan leader. Obama can now then split their funding, thus taking the teeth out of the real military, and put a lot of money in the hands of bureaucrats. And we all know how well bureaucrats have done with our tax money so far.
Here’s another idea. Why not appoint “whistle-blowers” who report people who talk bad against the regime? I don’t know about you, but I feel safer already.
That’s my rant!
