A truly Moranic idea
Exclusive: Joseph Farah skewers congressman over bill to establish government academy

As if the federal government were not growing fast enough under Barack Obama and the Democratic leadership of Congress, one of the dumbest members of the House has introduced a bill that would, at your expense, train a whole new breed of public employees who would be recruited by the president and members of Congress.

It's called the "Tuition-Free Public Service Academy Bill" sponsored by the aptly named Rep. Jim Moran, D-Va.

You might remember Moran was the guy who blamed the then-impending Iraq war on American Jews.

"If it were not for the strong support of the Jewish community for this war with Iraq, we would not be doing this," he said. "The leaders of the Jewish community are influential enough that they could change the direction of where this is going, and I think they should."

Now his latest bright idea is creation of a government-worker mill "modeled after the current military service academies at West Point, Annapolis and Colorado Springs."

Get "Taking America Back," Joseph Farah's manifesto for moral renewal, sovereignty and self-reliance.

As he puts it, the bill "would create an undergraduate institution designed to cultivate and groom a new generation of young leaders dedicated to public service. The Public Service Academy would offer four years of tuition-free education in exchange for five years of civilian service following graduation. Eligible fields of service would include public education, public health, law enforcement and government."

This $205-million-a-year idea is so misbegotten on so many levels it's almost impossible to know where to start critiquing it. Let me count the ways:

It's not the business of the federal government to be involved in education with the exception of training up military leaders.

There are plenty of people already qualified for all the jobs listed for the foreseeable future and beyond – too many, in fact.

It's nothing but another jobs program to be directed by the federal government, which is at least 10,000 times bigger than it should be already.

It's another perk to hand out for incumbent politicians to help ensure re-election.

It's yet another way for the federal government to insinuate itself inappropriately in state and local government and law enforcement.

In case you didn't notice, the federal government is broke – spending money that hasn't yet been earned by anyone and won't be for generations to come.
I'm sure there are many more reasons to oppose this Moranic idea – one that was admittedly first hatched by Hillary Clinton and Arlen Specter.

What is it about "limited government" that these people don't understand?

What is it about the Constitution that is so hard to understand?

What is it about "enumerated powers" that is so hard to understand?

Sad to say the bill already has 33 co-sponsors. Also sad to say is there is almost no chance this boondoggle will be defeated with the Democrats firmly in control of the House and Senate. Sad to say this sounds a lot like Barack Obama's idea for a "civilian national security force" to be as well-funded as the combined U.S. military services – a mysterious and insidious idea he breathed life into during his campaign for the presidency.

Guess who gets to nominate the students? The president and each member of Congress.

These guys want control of everything – and this is just the latest illustration of how they intend to get it.

They not only want everyone in servitude to the state, but they want to oversee the training of their serfs. And they want what is left of the productive sector of society to pay for it.

This legislative travesty is already in committee and has bipartisan support.

Can you imagine there are Republicans dumb enough or corrupt enough or compromised enough to support a plan like this – even with Specter now ensconced on the portside of the aisle?

Good heavens!

What will be left of this country's freedom when this bunch is through?

Scott ,after reading this article below, Baniel's vision of the endtime government ,Iron (Islam) and clay (democracy) hit me.

Obama is the catalyst to bring the two together.

The Price Tag of Islamic Compliance to the New World Order
The price tag that the Islamic countries would seek to be in negotiations to be part of the New World Order may be the attempted or allowed destruction of Israel itself, without any intervention by the US. Israel is the fly in the ointment anytime there are any foreign policy discussions between the US and major Islamic powers. Anytime we want to further an agenda in the Middle East, Israel has to make a concession in her fight for survival. Barack Hussein Obama is openly turning his back on Israel more and more each and every day. This may well be by design - by using Israel as a bargaining chip in an effort to bring Islamic countries to the Globalist Government table. The New World Order would have to have the Islamic countries on their side, at least for a time in order to bring everyone under a one world government. This evens the odds with regard to China and the military and economic problem that China presents.
Israel, if she were to either comply with the illegal requests from the United States to relinquish sovereignty and surrender land to the Palestinians or if she chooses not to comply, the result could be a Palestinian state forced into existence through war or economic pressure. The fact that Hussein Obama is even considering nullifying our 40 year old nuclear agreement with Israel by exposing the level of her nuclear arsenal and disclosing the locations of her nuclear armaments, insisting that Israel disarms, could spell out a death warrant for the small sovereign nation. Those nukes and the support of the United States have been Israel’s insurance against attacks by neighboring Muslim countries. Hussein Obama is threatening to remove both.
The additional price tag is that democratic countries have to implement Islamic influence into their governmental structures. This has been obvious in the UK and is becoming more apparent in the United States.
Barack Hussein Obama was chosen, not elected.
