WORD?
Are you kidding me! that was a clear give a way to why you are blinded by all that is reported not just in the MSM but on sites like this one. It's time for the apressed to rise and others to fall. Power to the people "ACORN" "AmeriCorp" United We Serve".... It's all clear now... Down with self relience and rise of the underclass! Hmm


Down with self reliance


We all know this is an insidious plot to instill Socialisms, destroy all the patriotics and
put the final nail into the practice of self reliance


You got it right
as most people enjoy be beholden to others
I know I do...

Once again let me know when you are forced to serve or when YOU FORCED to forgo
relying on your own abilities to provide for you.

I prefer being beholden to corporate entities myself

You know, I am starting to get the feeling that those against a volunteer program...they are not worried about the program; rather, I think they are concerned about the public ridicule and shame that will drive them to volunteer just to save face.

Peace

Your point is very well made. That opens the door to another point outside of this thread of other things to come as sheeple will not volenteer, jails are too full and a very little few will cause civil unrest but this issue and some others are being monitored by the powers that be. Those who go along are compliled, those who are not completely sure of which direction to go are compiled and those who are defiant have a place nicely being kept just for them.

When the next huge event occurs, only then will everybody have their place in this NWO!

"...So is it fair for those that are fortunate to keep their feet on the heads of those that are living in poverty. Heck, lets all turn our noses up at the poor....because, after all, they are just the filthy, undeserving poor. That my friend is about as closed minded as one can get...."


You're not getting what I'm saying...
I'm trying to explain that whether it's mandatory or not We The People are already nothing more than wage slaves on a leash, working everyday for the profits of a few. The fact that he asks YOU & ME to lower OUR sights, instead of asking the richest corporate 'owners' and banksters to lower THEIR share of profit is why I'm not thrilled about his call to serve, to say the least. Let me make this as easy as I can for you:

WE the masses are poor; THEY the few are filthy rich beyond belief.
Dear Obama, go to them, we have nothing more to offer!!! They robbed us clean....


"...I would rather have the "roadside clean-up fund" going towards this program as opposed to criminals..."


I'd rather have all excess produced and all profits go to the masses, and not to the few. However, they write the laws, so stealing an apple at Walmart is illegal, and yet Walmart raping 'n pillaging the country and destroying communities isn't... just to name an example...


"...Yet the military scours the youth of EVERY SINGLE high school recruiting VOLUNTEERS. Is that wrong too? ..."


Yes it is. Have you checked out the profits being made by the Military Industrial Complex?

Yes I have...but it isn't going in the pockets of the innocent, poor, under educated high school CHILDREN that are being recruited. What do I see happening to the enlisted? Death, Under payment, lack of appreciation...

I will yield on your other point, as you have explained it sufficiently so...and...
...I agree.

When the day comes that those who disagree with this bill posting on this thread it will be already reported in every city, county and state news outlets as some will have the ability to sue and there will be law suits that win because this is wrong to mandate our children to serve as this admin has stated since Nov 08.

It will also be reported all over but misreported by the MSM as civil unrest and extremist as sheeple go to extremes to say no to a lot of illigally passed laws in bills passed by this criminal gov. I know, I know, I'm a right winged nut job...

As if you know me lol... It's not a right or left issue!


Was not aimed at you and I did not accuse you of admiring yourself too often either.

In fact you seem to have me pegged by my use of the idiom

WORD

If you disagree thats fine, DO NOT PARTICIPATE, PROTEST or run for President (you can nominate yourself).

And yes this government is criminal, however the legal system still works as prescribed by the United States Constitution. If you are such a proponent of self reliance, YOU YOURSELF can file the first case against the government. The evidence is
overwhelming, WE ARE BEING FORCED TO SERVE

Gee, how much service should I provide further? I gave 15 years of service in the U.S. Army and earned much less than Obama will have been paid for his present "service" to the community at large. Oh, and I got the added plus of disease and physical impairment for my time. I donate time and experience to a group called HOBY each summer. Um........donate paintings to charity auctions 3 to 4 times each year. Uh, now that HOBY is over for the year, please Mr. President, can I take off this summer, or should I go out and spend some big bucks on a pair of fancy sneakers so I can feed poor people for a photo op? Oh, and those commercials with the red jacketed young people giving up a year of their life to donate their time, very touching. Great PR move. Oh, yeah, I also put in my victory garden so that I can donate the extra vegetables to the food closet, and I did it even without the help of little kids and photographers. Oh, yeah, mustn't forget the art classes I teach for free in the local Montessori middle school throughout the school year. Mr. Obama, can I have a free pass on this volunteerism you say is my national duty this summer?

OK...here is some common ground...if, and I do mean IF, this became a scenario of forced servitude, then I will be your cell mate my friend.

Let's not focus on our differences, that's what "THEY" want. Let's focus on what has drawn us ALL to ATS. Unity, even with disagreement...UNITY must prevail!

Along with FRIENDSHIP, CARING and KINDNESS....let's all head on over to Jingleheimer Junction



Peace!

Ok, so with unemployement off the charts, economy on quick sand, industries failing left and right, bailout money going toward banks and auto makers, people who have jobs are struggling to pay bills let alone buy anything to keep the economy running, but the great savior lord and messiah Obama's great solution to all of our problems are to volunteer with no pay? I have been against this moronic idea from the start. Instead of wasting trillions on bailouts and handouts, wouldn't it be better to instead make these "mandatory volunteer" services into actual jobs? That would solve the unemployement crisis and i don't care what they say, any out of job American would happily pick up trash, or clean up a park if they are paid.

That is how the world works, you work to get paid to pay bills, buy necessities and even unnecessities to keep the economy flowing. Unless Obama's big plan is to outlaw money. I don't have a problem with volunteering, but the word itself is the key word VOLUNTEER. I would rather do it for the cause I care for, not for what the governement or our great savior says. How can they possibly expect people with little or nothing to actually give to others in their exact situation? I don't care what the penalty is, I won't do it unless I'm paid. But then again, the penalty is probably those camps everyone here goes on about and get a good "re-Education".

O.K after working 8 hours, cooking, cleaning and tending to kids I plan on Serving my country with a bunch of petitions starting with the seperation from family and State, then a petition on my children will not perform mandatory seritude. They are already active in the comunity of free choice. I could go on and on.

Then I'll serve my Country by calling my representitives on all these new changes that only benefit the ones with political power.

Arent all the dads out there a bit ticked off that Obama is telling you how to be a good father. YIKES It will only get more interesting!

Over react much???

Why don't you start by reading the OP first...

There is NOT one place that uses the Word mandatory or any other synonym of the word for that matter.

You can start by having a beer and relaxing - ALL of you!

I've just looked over all six versions - I am looking at the most resent one that is up

if you would find the sub claus as this bill basically amends the 1990 version of the COMMUNITY SERVICE ACT of 1990 - George Bush Sr passed And the 1974 act Domestic Volunteer ACT Which was passed by FORD???

Basically what I am getting at here is HB 1388 is built upon things that have been institutional in the USA since Kennedy.

Now I ask you, please show me or tell me the sub clauses that would make it MANDATORY for children to serve. A good way to find that is to fine the penalties sub clauses that are part of the frame work of such a bill. Thus far I see no such lingo
and without such lingo, what you are eluding too is pure HOPE/Speculation -

Seems to me this bill is aimed to create tax and social service incentives for people WHO want to participate. It is also aimed at saving tax payers money by bypassing private contracts on activities and work which can be fulfilled by willing citizens in exchange for educational incentives- NOT AS GOOD AS THE GI BILL, not close.

As I have said please, if you believe this will be enforced by FORCE show me the proof... This is an expansive bill, yet it is hardly what YOU and other make it out to be.

My PRE LAW experience will be enough as this is not too complicated, so push some good addendum and amending upon me.

At last glance I see that there is protection for the government in case too many people seek to utilize this program.
Plus the funding is WEAK - Spend more dropping bombs in a month and providing IRAQI COMMUNITY SERVICE


There are also 20 + revisions of terms and
