Posted on 09/04/2008 5:17:57 PM PDT by Kaslin
Election '08: Democrats' reintroduction of militant Michelle Obama in Denver was supposed to show her softer side. But it only highlighted a radical part of her resume: Public Allies.
Big Brother had nothing on the Obamas. They plan to herd American youth into government-funded reeducation camps where they'll be brainwashed into thinking America is a racist, oppressive place in need of "social change."
The pitch Public Allies makes on its Web site doesn't seem all that radical. It promises to place young adults (18-30) in paid one-year "community leadership" positions with nonprofit or government agencies. They'll also be required to attend weekly training workshops and three retreats.
In exchange, they'll get a monthly stipend of up to $1,800, plus paid health and child care. They also get a post-service education award of $4,725 that can be used to pay off past student loans or fund future education.

The danger that this man and his cohorts pose is almost beyond calculation. Thank God for McCain and Palin!
The US Public Health Service tries to eliminate parasites and look what they're doing, growing more.
More info on this organization, please?
Bloggers do your duty.
'Universal" and "Voluntary" do not belong in the same description. Unless the re-definitions have moved well beyond "is."
Big Brother is smiling in hell.
So I guess a community organizer does have responsibilities: promoting social unrest.
forced community organizing!
Yippee! What fun.
“Unless the re-definitions have moved well beyond “is.” “
That’s why that aricle earlier today about not electing any more lawyers was spot on.
Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.
Section 2. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.
“The danger that this man and his cohorts pose is almost beyond calculation. Thank God for McCain and Palin!”
That’s a fact.
0’bama fails to carry any of the 57 states.
Mao’s reeducation camps come to mind
Of course, Michelle will not want us to wear Mao suits or Hillary pantsuits. She could not give up her $800 Jimmy Choo shoe collection and her kids could not give up their Prada backpacks
Why don’t they just lower prices?
I saw a video clip of Michelle today giving some speech. Her hair and face were hangdog and she had no or very little makeup on. I think Sarah has affected her. LOL
It is kind of like some of the local schools requiring a year of mandatory "volutary service" to graduate high school.
Darn, I was hoping it was Michelle Malkin with a plan to put radicals in boot camp.
Nullified by Amendment XVI.
You have that right. Sieg heil Obama.
You mean, like an Ivy League college?
Glenn Beck now reading this article. Go to website, go to FAQ on Senator Barak and Michelle Obama-check out last paragraph.....
step 2 - convicted criminals get their choice of going to jail or serving in the OVPS.
I am listening to Glen Beck right now about this..The republicans had better bring this to light to the American public..Eveyone here that reads this should copy and paste it and send to their email list..Those two scared the mess out of me anyway..
Also go to FAQ on Barak and Michelle Obama on the website. The last paragraph touts McCain being for public service and wanting to increase Americorps funds 200%. McCain better address this too, and if false, they better take it down from website...
I’ll go see it..Thanks!
Thanks very much for the ping; post; links.
Glenn Beck talked about this on his radio show in the last hour.
First I have ever heard about this particular collective.
Alinsky method of operation...
BUMP! BUMP! BUMP!
did you get this Syl?
This needs to be repeated! It’s important for all of us to read.
He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you put down your divisions.
[Ah! Divisions - things that make cultures different, ie, you must give up the values that you deem important.]
That you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zones.
[Again, no individualism for you, you're required to join the collective.]
That you push yourselves to be better. And that you engage. Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual, uninvolved, uninformed."
[More of the "allow" and force to make you join the collective.]
Got it and thanks!
That's how she always looks, IMO.
But, this after her makeover and special lighting. She looked awful. I imagine they weren’t planning on Sarah Palin.
You’re probably quite right. She is not a seasoned politician, and the truth as others see it about her idol/husband is probably very painful. She will need to toughen up plenty, no matter what lies ahead.
did you see THIS article? scary
But we're not keeping pace with the demand of those who want to serve, and we're not leveraging that commitment to meet national challenges
. FDR not only enlisted Americans to create employment, he targeted that service to build our infrastructure and conserve our environment. JFK not only called on a new generation, he made their service a bridge to the developing world, and a bright light of American values in the darkest days of the Cold War.
Today, AmeriCorps - our nation's network of local, state and national service programs - has 75,000 slots. As President, I will increase that to 250,000, and make that increased service a vehicle to meet national goals like providing health care and education, saving our planet and restoring our standing in the world,
so that citizens see their efforts connected to a common purpose. People of all ages, stations, and skills will be asked to serve. Because when it comes to the challenges we face, the American people are not the problem - they are the answer. Just as we teach math and writing, arts and athletics, we need to teach young Americans to take citizenship seriously. Study after study shows that students who serve do better in school, are more likely to go to college, and more likely to maintain that service as adults. So when I'm President, I will set a goal for all American middle and high school students to perform 50 hours of service a year, and for all college students to perform 100 hours of service a year. This means that by the time you graduate college, you'll have done 17 weeks of service. We'll reach this goal in several ways. At the middle and high school level, we'll make federal assistance conditional on school districts developing service programs, and give schools resources to offer new service opportunities.
At the community level, we'll develop public-private partnerships so students can serve more outside the classroom. For college students, I have proposed an annual American Opportunity Tax Credit of $4,000 to make tuition affordable. To receive this credit, we'll require 100 hours of public service. And we'll amend the Federal Work-Study program, so that nearly $250 million will help more than 200,000 college students work in part-time public service jobs each year.
Renewing that spirit starts with service. Make no mistake: our destiny as Americans is tied up with one another. If we are less respected in the world, then you will be less safe. If we keep paying dictators to fill up our gas tanks, then those oceans are going to rise. If we can't give our kids a world-class education, then our economy is going to fall behind. And that's how it should be. It is time to recapture that sense of a common purpose: I am my brother's keeper, I am my sister's keeper.
I have spent hours reading the policies/issues at Obama’s site. It’s been hard going because I’m not a policy wonk- but I started doing this back in the spring. IF anyone is afraid of Obama based on the little we DO know about him- go to his site and get into the issues- you’ll be SHAKING when you’re done.
It's subtle, but clear.
Alinsky method of operation...<<<
This is beginning to remind me of when Kerry ran for President.
With in a very few days, when I did a google search, I got pages of communist links.
It was suddenly O.K. to be a communist and they did not go back into hiding when he lost.
