Ok, well Im tired of reading all this BS about this being a good thing. Because ITS NOT. Do you people that support this idiotic idea not realize
what is going to happen. Its just going to make things worse. The youth of today will take being forced into doing these things as a punishment.
What happens when you enforce too strict or punishment in general on a young youth? They rebel. Duh you morons. As for this being a good idea, yea
on a case by case basis. Take the truely trouble youth and put them through this, however, for those that are just fine there is no reason to put
them through this BS. They did nothing to deserve it, they do what they are supposed to and excel.
This is a terrible idea. I for one do not agree with the requirement to serve simply because it should be a voluntary act on that persons behalf. I
am 23 and currently enlisted in the Marines, I am at the moment deployed to Iraq. Those who are forced to join are not going to come over here and be
willing to fight for anything except the chance to go home. I fight for the Marines to my left, right and behind me because they are my brothers. If
I have to jump on a grenade to keep many of my Marines alive then so be it, the life of one for the many is worth it to me. You will not see that
same attitude from these forced into the service. They will hate their lives therefore they will hate their country. Hello, wake up, what happened
with Veitnam, anyone remember that era of history. Most of those who were FORCED to go fight came back and hate this country, so what makes you think
today it will be any different. You people are nieve and are blinded by this new president. He is a great talker and you are all like his little
sheep who he is leading out to pasture. Nothing good will come of this. What about all those people who do extra-curricular activities during
school. Do you think they are going to have time to juggle school, homework, those activities plus do 50 hours of communitry service a month.
Doubtful. What happens to those unfortunate ones who become parents at a young age? I personally know about this part. My daughter was born when I
was 17. I moved out of my grandparents house, took a full time job, went to school, and raised my daughter. Now tack on a mondatory 50 hours of
extra FREE work and the decision will have to be made as to which of those other things will have to falter. This idea is stupid plain and simple,
for those of you who agree with him I say this. Get your heads out of your butts and see the light of day for once. He has blinded you all. What do
you really know about Obama, he sure doesnt like to disclose his past with you, seems kinda funny to me. I believe he is the start of the downfall of
our country and I for one have to put up with it because he is my boss.
You can say its a good thing all you want, but realize this. Most of the youth today are not degenerates, and they are the ones who are going to be
screwed by this new thing Obama is wanting. Community service was reserved for those screw ups when I was growing up, and should stay that way. You
punish the masses for the actions of a few and the masses will turn out like those few because they are being treated the same so why not act the
same. Psychologically speaking, he is going to turn more youth bad then he is good. I for one know when I was growing up that when I would have to
do things for stuff I didnt do, I just went and did what I was being punished for because hey, Im being punished for it so why not do it. That is how
the youth of today think, so when your kids start being degenerates remember my words and remember that Obama is the cause.
As for punishing your kids, you cant in these days or you risk jail time. I for one say this. I spank my daughter or son and get arrested I will
knock the cop out. Then they will have a real reason to arrest me and thats exactly what Ill tell the judge.
