President Obama is calling on federal agencies to use volunteers to accomplish their tasks as part of a larger effort to boost community service throughout the country.

The White House issued an executive order Friday -- Expanding National Service through Partnerships to Advance Government Priorities -- to establish a task force charged with improving national service and volunteering. The initiative seeks to align the American people’s commitment to service with the missions of federal agencies.

They should demand free labor from those on welfare, long term unemployment and faking disability - not the employed who already give up a large chunk of pay.

I’m just now re watching V. Amazing parallels. Visitor helper snitches, assassins and media. Throw a brick and yell “conservative” (scientist).

Evil lizard Supreme Commander.

How about volunteering your millions of welfare hoodlums? They already have free cellphones to be at your beckon and call.

“state servitude will be mandatory soon - they own us”

That battle was lost when schools were allowed to demand “volunteering” as a requirement for graduation.

The odd thing is that gubmint workers (especially furloughed ones) don’t like the idea of volunteers taking their jobs.

Step one, take the congress in 2014.

Step two, advance legislation that would allow a third term. After all, it will be racist to oppose this.

Step three, 0bama “reluctantly” accepts the parties nomination.

Recruiting welfare recipients to work the streets as “volunteers” for the cause of “social justice”.

I like the idea of takers doing something for the good of society (likely not doing any of hte work of gov’t.).

Obama is such a doofus. He thinks all the takers and gibmedats will volunteer to do some kind of activity for free.

Good luck with that.

This shyster communist is without a doubt the biggest
internal threat our nation has ever faced.
We are watching it happen before our very eyes.
No good will come of this and much blood.

Reading between the lines here, expect unemployment to stay high, or get worse. Furthermore, prepare for the bookkeepers to make sure these unpaid “volunteers” get counted in such a way that it helps the Friday unemployment stats.

When I was in the 6th grade, our "Social Studies" teacher fed us all a daily dose of propaganda about how great Democrats were because of FDR's WPA.

Even then, I knew it was garbage, but I thought: "At least they were carrying shovels and doing something."

The welfare leeches, the SSDI takers, the long term unemployed - none of them want to work in jobs like that (heat, cold, manual labor).
