Paid Volunteerism Is Here

We cannot have folks, young or old, just sitting idly by. After all, there is much great work that needs to be done. because of that grave statistic, you know, the one that says we are not a great country that WILLINGLY donates our time and energy for FREE in order to help others.

No, government sees through our smoke-and-mirrors and picks out the truth; the truth that we are an arrogant and undeserving country that has let itself go to waste. We have let our children down. We no longer promote the true American values- the ones that say every person has a right to life, liberty, a house, free education, free health care and your neighbor’s car.

Because we have no clue what is right for ourselves, Uncle Nanny will now let us know where we need to VOLUNTEER and how much we will get PAID to do so. It is a piddly little $6 BILLION dollars, but hey, Glorious Leader slashed $100 million yesterday, so it all works out in the wash, right? I find it ironic that those who promoted openness, free speech, help for the little guy, tolerance, etc, are hell bent on forcing everyone to do and think like they do.

Welcome to the USSA.

The revolution is at hand. Will you be a leader or a follower?

GIVE Until It Hurts

Update: Glorious Leader brings new fruit to bear!

[H/T: Bungalow Bill]
I can here it now. behind the closed and protected doors of the White House Oval Office comes the wrod, directly from Rahmbo himself.
“Phase one is nearing completion, sir.”

With the union in economic turmoil, congressional losers leaders screaming to the media about AIG and the horrific, unfair, dastardly deed they are doing by giving the promised bonuses to leaders and everyone focused in on the erupting melee, little to nothing is being said about the passage of Glorious Leader’s Youth Indoctrination Program.

As reported by FOX News:

The legislation, slated to cost $6 billion over five years, would create 175,000 “new service opportunities” under AmeriCorps, bringing the number of participants in the national volunteer program to 250,000. It would also create additional “corps” to expand the reach of volunteerism into new sectors, including a Clean Energy Corps, Education Corps, Healthy Futures Corps and Veterans Service Corps, and it expands the National Civilian Community Corps to focus on additional areas like disaster relief and energy conservation.

But the bill’s opponents — and there are only a few in Congress — say it could cram ideology down the throats of young “volunteers,” many of whom could be forced into service since the bill creates a “Congressional Commission on Civic Service.”

The bipartisan commission will be tasked with exploring a number of topics, including “whether a workable, fair and reasonable mandatory service requirement for all able young people could be developed and how such a requirement could be implemented in a manner that would strengthen the social fabric of the nation.”

Welcome to the great Socialist Experiment. All hail Glorious Leader.

Mandatory Volunteerism Has Arrived

The beating of the “I told you so” drum is getting monotonous. Did you really think that having the ultimate liberals in charge of congress combined with an inexperienced whelp in the White House would lead down any other path?

Examine, now, the latest piece of legislation called for by Glorious Leader.

See a partial explanation here.

Can we call for a do over? I am HOPEFUL there would be a radical CHANGE in the outcome.
