Obama: Observe a National Day of Service (for his Inauguration)
Obama for America ^ | 1/18/13 | no one would admit to it

Posted on 01/18/2013 11:12:28 AM PST by pabianice

Join the National Day of Service

On Saturday, January 19, President Obama and the First Lady, the Vice President and Dr. Biden will take part in an event that's become a tradition -- a National Day of Service on the weekend of Martin Luther King Day to celebrate Dr. King's legacy.

No matter where you are in America, you have an opportunity to join this effort and serve your community. The Presidential Inaugural Committee has helped to organize events all over the country.

Visit their site to find a service opportunity near you.

This National Day of Service is about strengthening the communities that we call home, and that's a goal that we can all share.

So on Saturday, take part in a food drive or help paint a school. Clean up a park or help make care packages for veterans.

There are many ways that all of us can make a difference in our communities and our neighborhoods. Find one here:

The President is looking forward to seeing you out there!

P.S. -- The commitment to public service doesn't end this weekend. Find opportunities to help in your community year round, at Serve.gov.

The reporter got it wrong. It was supposed to be a Day of Signing up for Services. Pass the immigration help packets around.

Why doesn’t he mandate that those on unemployment and welfare work for “free”, instead of demanding time in addition to money from those who work?

I am so tired of this crap! The free market has helped more people than all the charities combined. People pursuing their own interest while working, creating, and building things are the ones who have made the US the envy of the world. If people want to go out and clean up a park, fine, but don’t think you’re saving the world doing it.

Humph. It'll just be another average day for me and mine. Obomas communist party day has nothing to do with us. We're Constitutionalists.
Too bad his crap will get in the way of real news, though.

We have a "national day of service" for 9/11 (instead of a national day of rage as I would like). We have one for Martin Luther King day. Now were are supposed to have an additional one for Obama's inauguration? Gag!

I feel like I'm getting serviced like a mare for Obama's inauguration day.

Considering that the last Obama inauguration turned the National Mall into a 150 acre trash dump, maybe we can save the volunteer park cleaning for the 22nd.

Since Obama has the poor covered, I suggest we dedicate the day of service to helping the rich. Everyone head to your local harbor and start cleaning yachts. Or to your nearest country club, and start scrubbing tires and waxing the cars in the parking lot.

But I thought 9/11 was a National Day of Service?

How many “National Days of Service” is this guy gonna appoint? I mean, if he gets his way, every day will become a day of service.

Dr. Biden
Doctor? Since When?

Below shows she is a Professor and they are called Doctors as long as they have a PHD.

Jill Biden has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Delaware, master’s degrees from West Chester University and Villanova University and a doctoral degree from the University of Delaware. She taught English and reading in high schools for 13 years, and also taught adolescents with emotional disabilities at a psychiatric hospital. From 1993 to 2008, she was an English and writing instructor at Delaware Technical & Community College. Since 2009, she has been a professor of English at Northern Virginia Community College and is thought to be the first Second Lady to hold a paying job while her husband is Vice President. She is the founder of the Biden Breast Health Initiative non-profit organization, co-founded the Book Buddies program, and is active in Delaware Boots on the Ground.

The My American Public Service Announcements (PSAs) feature President Obama, Bon Jovi, Usher and everyday volunteers calling upon all Americans to step up and get involved.

Bingo. Spend $$$ on firearms and ammo, go to the range for some target practice.

Think Chick-Fil-A.

Wouldn't it be nice if the turnout at gun shops and ranges was so far off the charts that the media HAD to report it on the same day Obama's sworn in for his second term.

It would really rain on his parade; Liberal talking heads, officials and activists would end up p*ssing themselves indignant over it.

Obama: Observe a National Day of Service (for his Inauguration)

I put in several national days of service specifically to prevent this catastrophe. I will put in many more days to minimize the damage inflicted by this anti-American communist's time in our White House.
