"The Obama Administration will call on Americans to serve in order to meet the nations challenges. President-Elect Obama will expand national service programs like AmeriCorps and Peace Corps and will create a new Classroom Corps to help teachers in underserved schools, as well as a new Health Corps, Clean Energy Corps, and Veterans Corps. Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by developing a plan to require 50 hours of community service in middle school and high school and 100 hours of community service in college every year. Obama will encourage retiring Americans to serve by improving programs available for individuals over age 55, while at the same time promoting youth programs such as Youth Build and Head Start."
Doesn't this violate the 13th amendment?
The Obama Youth!
I wonder what exactly the “community service” consist of? My guess, is it’s something we’ve never seen before.
His SCOUS will soon take care of that bothersome amendment...
as well as a new Health Corps,
Making the high schoolers do community service at the local Planned Parenthood, no doubt.
we all have a new religion here.
Forced, unpaid work is slavery.
Ahh yes. And I thought we had done away with conscription as well. Leave it to the democrats to demonize the draft and then reinstitute it in such an insidious way.
we all have a new religion here. it is called an obamanation.
!$@#$@$ I was just talking about this to my husband - the idea, I mean, not the fact. He was complaining that all the welfare Osamadabamada wants to hand out should have some work to it - i.e., community service for WELFARE PANHANDLERS. THEY should have to “give back” for the drain they are. I’m sickened by the HS requirements in our state as it is.
How can he make colleges and private schools follow this?
Obama’s Brown Shirts.
One of my kids will be entering middle school while this asshat is in office. They’re going to have a tough time getting my child to serve this administration.
Is called Obomunism.
O needs “community organizers” across the country for ‘12.
forced service isn’t service, it’s servitude (a condition in which one lacks liberty especially to determine one’s course of action or way of life) — tyranny
HAHAHAHA. Hope they get it in place soon so that all the Obamamatons on the college campuses get caught in their own “change”....
Individual freedom takes another blow.
