HR 1388/S 277 OBAMA says "It is time to STEP UP and SERVE" in a TV commerical announcing NEW Website
http://www.usaservice.org/ ^ | March 20, 2009 | joygrace

Posted on 03/19/2009 11:14:52 PM PDT by joygrace



As HR1388,GIVE Act is on its way to the Senate as many of you know. It will be called S.277, the Kennedy/Hatch Serve America Act.

It is on its way to the Senate. Tonight Obama did a TELEVISION commercial about “STEPPING UP” to serve. It sounded like HE WAS RECITING A 30-SECOND POEM and at the end of the commercial he advertised this website. Check it out.

I was at my computer listening to Greta on FoxNews in the background as I worked on my computer so I didn’t see it but I heard it. Did anyone see it?

So here he is with a NEW website before the Bill called S.277 (formerly HR1388) hits the Senate Floor. He is very eager.

Someone please call Congress and let them know they don’t need to show up next week to vote on S. 277. Obama has it covered. He is all set./sarc I guess Obama knows it is a “done deal” since he already has a website ready to roll.

I find Obama's behavior quite contrasting with his eagerness to create and implement his SERVICE AGENDA by ushering in a huge layer of government all the while languishing and dragging his feet over there in Treasury with still NO PLAN and over 16 people in the treasury left to hire.

I guess “Mandatory Volunteerism” will solve all of our problems. Now that’s change I can believe in. /sarc.<

When will Obama and his broodmare and bastard constituency “serve” the nation instead of serving themselves at taxpayer’s expense.

When the welfare cheats start doing something for the taxpayer’s money then Obama can try to tell the rest of us what to do.

"It’s time to GOOSE-STEP UP and SERVE"

In concert with his poetic political commercial, The Obammunist is testing his minions this Saturday. The 13 million e-addies have been commanded to mobilize and knock on doors this Saturday to ask support for The Messiah.

I am always incredulous when pundits on TV berate another for saying Obama is a Socialist or Marxist. It is just so awful to label him as such. Of course, defining the other side as crazy and radical is an old Marxist tactic.

If Obama is not a Socialist or Marxist, then I would like to know just exactly what the hell one would call him. That was his upbringing and his training and is how he governs. There can no longer be any doubt what he is and the only remaining question is, “How far will Americans allow him to take them into the Socialist, third-world abyss?”

In the window put in the proper link.

They can't fix it if they don't know it is broken.

i’m getting the sense he’s going from project to project in his agenda, if it doesn’t work now, e.g. shelving that mess he wants to create for American Vets insurance he’s going to hop on another train and here’s his new one, this mandatory service thing. Our economic issues have yet to be resolved and it’s on-going- paraphrase D. Axelrod about “people aren’t really concerned with AIG , etc. etc....
What flumoxxes me is this:If this is MANDATORY Volunteerism there’s a catch in this because there’s the carrot/stick mentality here. People don’t do things for free (this stuff anyway) unless they are altruistic and truly motivated. Key WORD: ALTRUISM This is Othugo’s mistake.
I think it’s masochistic for individuals with intelligence to ponder their future if they DON”T “volunteer” . Is it titillating to think that if you are out of college , grown, kids in the house that someone would come to knock on your door to tell you that you HAVE to volunteer? Requiring all regardless of age to mandatory volunteerism is quite a feat. I know many people, as all of you do, that are aged, infirm or physically or mentally disabled. What is going to happen to them? Are they going to get locked up or something because of their situation? Othugo can’t make these people do something they can’t or even won’t, just my humble opinion,that’s all.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can only organizations host events?

A: Absolutely not. Anyone, from a national or local organization to an individual volunteer can host an event. All you have to do to register an event is to follow the easy three step process on this website. To get started please visit the USAservice.org homepage.

Q: Will there be opportunities to volunteer after MLK Day?

A: Yes, stay tuned. The goal is for MLK Day to reignite the American tradition of service and volunteerism and to that end the current call to action is viewed as a starting point. Details on how to stay active in the future will be coming soon.

Q: I have children. Are kids welcome to volunteer too?

A: Yes, although minors under the age of 16 should be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Can these leftists get any more creepy, stupid, arrogant, and can they mirror real National Socialism any better??

I have had my tagline for years.... And it is proven again.

On the website for the organization, it has the same required fields that Obama’s loyalty oath contains. I would say that it is a heck of a coincidence, but I do not believe in coincidence at this high a level and never from a leftist. By “signing up” does one automatically take this loyalty oath? Were not the leftists all in a tizzy about supposed loyalty oaths under Bush?

The “about us” section still calls Obama “president-elect”. Odd. It is almost the end of March. More proof that he is still campaigning or just an oversight from a drug-addled crony?

In the FAQ section, it reads like the mandatory volunteerism act. Quite a plan the left appears to have had for a while. I wonder how long?

I did not even got to the blog. It is lunch time here and our Internet is slow. However, I do not doubt the blog is as creepy and shows shades of 1930s Germany as the rest of the site does.

Not to sound melodramatic, but I wonder if America will be salvageable by 2012. I’m looking more and more into Australia, Ireland, and New Zealand as places to move to once I get out of college. I love America but I don’t like what it’s becoming. I don’t want to live in a socialist country.

Went to DUmmieland and some other lib boards and they’re going out of their way not to discuss this. After tons of searching all I can find is that AIG bonuses are more important to them than something that directly applies to them now and in their future and how great Obama did on Leno’s show. I can’t even find posts with the goofs praising this bill.
