Wait a sec here. What's the problem here? He could have spent his day at boring ceremonies, staring at his feet trying to look somber. But instead he helped pack bags for needy kids.

Why is that an issue?

I'm just pointing out that Obama is a sham.

And all the PC is a sham.

Because it's only used as a weapon against an ideology.

I'm pointing out that most of the responses in this thread are crying about Obama because he's not being PC. It's not PC to help put together bags for needy kids, because it's 9/11 and the charity's name is Kaboom. It's not PC because it craps on the memory of those that died.....etc.



Because it's only used as a weapon against an ideology.


What ideology is that? The Neoconservative ideology?

Any real conservative would be glad that Obama is donating his time for a charitable organization. That is one of the main tenets of conservatism.

Let's stop the PC bullsnip and be honest. This is not about 9/11. This is not about the memories of those that died. This is not about political correctness. This is all about Obama and it doesn't matter what he does, some people of a certain "ideology" will find something to whine about.

I have more respect for someone that will at least be honest and admit it, rather than find ways to weasel around the issue.

I'll admit to throwing PC back into the faces of those who preach it, but don't live it.

It looks bad, but that's just the appearance of things.

Our Story | KaBOOM!

In August 1995, shortly after moving to Washington, D.C., 24-year-old Darell Hammond read a story in the Washington Post about two local children who suffocated while playing in an abandoned car because they didn’t have anywhere else to play. Darell realized this tragedy could have been prevented. The passion was born, the idea was conceived.
...
After attending community college and Ripon College, he helped lead the start-up of City Year Chicago. Under Darell’s leadership, 600 City Year volunteers built two playgrounds and more than 500 community volunteers joined the incredible day of service.
...
1995: First KaBOOM! build takes place at Livingston Manor in Washington, DC.
1996: KaBOOM! is officially founded.
1997: Offer is made to “purchase” KaBOOM! by Ted Turner… offer refused.
1999: We build our first universally accessible playground with AAOS.
2001: We become the first nonprofit to have an ice cream flavor: Ben & Jerry’s KaBerry KaBOOM!.
2002: Our online playground project planner, Our Dream Playground, is created to help us scale our impact online.
2003: We celebrate our 500th playground build at the Boys and Girls Club in Brampton, Ontario.
2005: We launch Operation Playground in the Gulf Coast after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita; First Lady Laura Bush attends playground build in Kiln, Miss.
2006: Our Map of Play is created and KaBOOM! reaches $20 million in annual funding.
2007: We establish our Playful City USA program and partner with Rockwell Group to develop Imagination Playground.
2009: First Lady Michelle Obama and California First Lady Maria Shriver join us to build a playground at Bret Harte Elementary School in San Francisco. KaBOOM! is featured on NBC's Parks and Recreation; staff must still answer the question, "Wait, KaBOOM! is real?"
2010: KaBOOM! is named one of the 50 Best Nonprofits to Work For by NonProfit Times in 2010 and 2011.
2011: We celebrate our 15th birthday and 2000th playground build at Imagine Southeast Public Charter School in Washington, DC; First Lady Michelle Obama attends.


An unfortunate name, but the organization was founded well before 9/11/2001.
