It's pretty blatant conditioning if you ask me. They'd never ask us to volunteer for something that wasn't sweet and innocent......would they?
Note to all volunteers, make sure you read the fine print.

Obama tries to make it seem like the idea of volunteering is one of his great ideas for CHANGE. We don't need him to tell us to volunteer our time. We've been doing it for years before he slimed his way upon the scene. It's a ploy to get his minions hopping around, thinking they are accomplishing something.
And his wife, who thinks she is the second coming of Jackie-O the way she dresses and wears her hair, should talk. She's a crook as bad as he is.

Even if he goes through with requiring public school children to serve their community for 50 hours, I'm for it. Hello? Public school is a government funded service, remember? Oh but maybe we should get rid of that socialist program as well. 50 hours in highschool is nothing. Kids spend more time talking on the phone in a week than they would be asked to spend helping better their communities in the whole four years they would be in highschool.

I wonder how many of the people on this thread that posted negative comments about this actually go out a volunteer on a regular basis?
