Federal Government Graduates First Crop of Homeland Youth
FEMA just graduated its first class of 231 Homeland Youth.
Federal Government graduates first class of Homeland Youth. The new Hitler Youth Corps for the Barrack Obama USA… What the hell is a bunch of first responder kids going to do?
The federal government calls them FEMA Corps. But they conjure up memories of the Hitler Youth of 1930’s Germany. Regardless of their name, the Dept of Homeland Security has just graduated its first class of 231 Homeland Youth. Kids, aged 18-24 and recruited from the President’s AmeriCorp volunteers, they represent the first wave of DHS’s youth corps, designed specifically to create a full time, paid, standing army of FEMA Youth across the country.
On September 13, 2012, the Department of Homeland Security graduated its first class of FEMA Corps first-responders. Image courtesy of DHS.gov. While the idea of having a volunteer force of tens of thousands of volunteers scattered across the country to aid in times of natural disasters sounds great, the details and timing of this new government army is somewhat curious, if not disturbing.
Is this what we should be spending our tax dollars on, “Homeland Youth”???
