Does anyone know anything about this? What's the scuttlebutt going around? I am way beyond out of the loop lately....

I am going to attach the actual document. I hope it goes through. If you noticed in what I highlighted above it will be starting in middle school. They use the word MANDATORY and some of the groups involved are military, like Department of Defense! While involved in this the people will not be allowed their right to free speech and will also be prevented from serving God. This is a total enslavement of the American people and an infringement on our rights. There are more bills in the making so MORE people will be forced to participate. Below are some interesting quotes from people and facts....
7 million members of this civilian "army" equates to about one member for every 50 Americans, a similar figure to the number of East Germans who collaborated with the Stasi and informed on their own citizens during the cold war.
Obama's Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel, said "We're going to have universal civil defense training, somewhere between the ages of 18 to 25 you will do three months of training….but there can be nothing wrong with all Americans having a joint similar experience of what we call civil defense training or civil service in service of the country, in preparation, which will give people a sense of what it means to be an American." Asked if the training would be military style, with people wearing uniforms, Emanuel stated, "If you're worried about are you going to have to do 50 jumping jacks the answer is yes," adding that the service could be done through state national guard.
In July 2008, when Obama told a rally in Colorado Springs, "We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that is just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded."
