Establishing a “Ready Reserve Corps” : Epic fail obama’s private army

And you thought that obamacare was all about give away’s to special interests, and the destruction of the economy? Nope, as reported here some time back the impostor in chief has indeed slipped in a few things that have nothing at all to do with health care, and yes, obama’s private army is enshrined in it. That would be the one that I blogged here almost in real time as I had a streaming video in Colorado Springs when he announced his plan during the run up to the election. Here’s just a bit from the monstrosity that the Congress and Senate passed in bald faced defiance of the American people. Can you say “Left Wing Militia?”

    Actually the USPHS has been around for awhile. They dress like Navy officers and serve all over the place. I’m not seeing the evil here. I think some folks are jumping the shark.

    fuck obongo and his private army should they raise their ugly heads we will chop them off.

    This is quite confusing. There is indeed a United States Public Health Service, but the excerpts presented almost seem to refer to commissioned officers in all branches of the military, in which case there is already a large pool of Reserve Officers both active and inactive.

    I’m also wondering what the original section of the U.S. Code read?

    FWIW, fauxcajun is a thin skinned whiner…

    I know Fred, but etiquette and all that.

    Alfie, this does not appear to be referring to USPHS, at least the way that I read it. I worked with those people on disaster planning and other things, usually via FEMA. This just looks different to me.

    first off people lets try to be adults about what is posted. second i find it to be really strange that the president wants to commision an armed service to enforce the laws of the health care bill further more dont we already have people to handle natural disaster emergencies. arent they called the national gaurd, police, fire department, ems, fema, and what ever state agencies are in place? i dont see the need for this and cant understand what is trying to be done. the president as chessy as it may sound has stood up and taken claim of the role of the real slim SHADY!!! just saying.


  8. Patrick Sperry Says:

    Precisely Matt. Something about this just does not add up…

    BTW, is this the Matt Head that worked at Haley Paramedics in Denver back in the day?
