America's supplies of tissues must have been exhausted during Barack Obama's 30-minute election broadcast late on Wednesday night. It had been billed as a "closing argument" by the Democrat's seemingly unstoppable campaign. In reality, it was an all-out, no-holds-barred weepathon with a feel-bad factor pitched somewhere between the third act of Schindler's List and the slaughter scenes in Watership Down. I emerged from my TV room sodden-eyed and legs trembling, wishing that Iran would just drop the bomb and get it all over with.

If he closes every loophole as promised, saves every dime from Iraq, raises taxes on the rich and trims the federal budget as he's promised to do "line by line," he still doesn't pay for his list. If he's elected, the first fact hitting his desk will be the figure projecting how much less of a budget he has to work with - thanks to the recession. He gave us a very compelling vision with his ad buy tonight. What he did not give us was any hint of the cold reality he's facing or a sense of how he might prioritize his promises if voters trust him with the White House.

Do you read any conspiracy websites? I read two and they have a lot of fear about the possibility of civil unrest if there is any chance that the election looks fixed. They fear the possibility of martial law.

Maybe this is what he means. It's from his website under Issues Defense.




Create a Civilian Assistance Corps (CAC): An Obama-Biden administration will set a goal of creating a national CAC of 25,000 personnel. This corps of civilian volunteers with special skill, sets (doctors, lawyers, engineers, city planners, agriculture specialists, police, etc.) would be organized to provide each federal agency with a pool of volunteer experts willing to deploy in times of need at home and abroad.

He said civilian defense force that's as powerful as the military. That means defending with arms, IMO.

The other idea is just expanding what FEMA does by using civilians in an official capacity.

I put a question on his website, but I doubt I'll hear before the election, and maybe not even then. I said the quote made the hair on the back of my neck stand up.

Cause what I'm thinking it means I don't like at all.

Apparently it was in the infomercial Wednesday night? I didn't watch it, I was busy doing important things like clipping cat toenails.

I read it on a blog which made me curious about it.

I'm sorry, but to me it just sounds like "Patriot Act 2.0". Why is it now a bad thing?
