The 2012 presidential campaign has started off with bang and our Dear Leader is flooding the airwaves with boasts about all the new jobs he has created. Well, besides the campaign workers he's hired I can't deny that he hasn't created a few new jobs but I wouldn't go around bragging about some of them if I were in his shoes. You all heard about the controversial provision Obama wanted inserted in the National Defense Authorization Act FY2012, the part about suspending the Constitutional Rights of American Citizens and giving the U.S. Army the authority to snatch off the streets anyone they want and hold them indefinitely. Well, some people began to doubt that such a Police State atmosphere could ever exist in the United States of America. Sorry to have to bust your bubble but the U.S. Army has already listed on their web site www.goarmy.com some new job openings for what they call Internment/Resettlement (I/R) Specialists. Read it below.
The following Careers & Jobs is the complete text taken from the U.S. Army web site GoArmy.com. http://www.goarmy.com/careers-and-jobs/browse-career-and-job-categories/legal-and-law-enforcement/internment-resettlement-specialist.html
Read it carefully and then consider the controversial sections 1031 and 1032 of the National Defense Authorization Act FY2012 (Senate Bill 1867 http://www.opencongress.org/bill/112-s1867/text) just passed in the Senate that grants authority to the government to detain indefinitely without trial any American it considers to be a threat.

Let me simplify these qualifications because they probably won't be read by anyone who is too highly educated. The job opening should say: "If you like the idea of walking around with a gun and you like to push people around, beat them up and act like a goon, then your government needs you. If taking an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States doesn't mean much to you then you are the kind of person we're looking for." Just remember one thing. Americans like being free and probably won't take to kindly to seeing you in their neighborhood. Oh, and one more thing, go back and read some stuff about the first American Revolution, its called American History. You might get an idea about how far we'll go for our freedom.
