MikeTeachKC: One of the few things I like from FDR's "New Deal" was the Civilian Conservation Corps. This was a limited, directed organization that was meant to help with the 30% unemployment rate. We don't have that now, as according to the Democrats, the unemployment rate is only 5.2%, give or take .5%. So, what is the purpose of this immense organization? One fear is that it will be nothing but an ideological school meant to indoctrinate the young and easily manipulated. For an example of how that works, take a look at the "Hitler Youth". We do not need that, even though something like the CCC would be a decent idea.
