(Michelle) Bachmann’s son, Harrison, has now joined Teach for America (TFA). According to the TFA website, “Teach For America is currently a member of AmeriCorps, the national service network.” The Serve America Act, which she voted against, supports programs such as TFA.
If you'll recall, Bachman railed against the expansion of AmeriCorps and called it "re-education camps".
I believe that there is a very strong chance that we will see that young people will be put into mandatory service. And the real concerns is that there are provisions for what I would call re-education camps for young people, where young people have to go and get trained in a philosophy that the government puts forward and then they have to go to work in some of these politically-correct forums. As a parent, I would have a very, very difficult time seeing my children do this.
Well Michelle, time to sit back and take it all in.
I often find myself concerned with the intellectual safety of children whos parents are so rabidly conservative and fly off the handle anytime the government spends a dollar on any organization - save the military or whatever can benefit them politically in the future.
I'm sure that this story will come up on Countdown or perhaps of Racheal Maddow's program, but don't expect a word of this to be uttered on Fox"News" or as an unsolicited comment from Bachman herself.
