This is just unreal.

He orders the furlough of 650,000 (286,000 of whom are veterans themselves) Dept of Defense engineers, nurses, teachers, cops, etc - taking 20% of their pay, and yet he wants volunteers to coordinate with this "Corporation for National and Community Service" that he created?

I think he is trying to build his own Private Army.

Mark my words.

They'll be wearing black hoodies, carry Obamaphones, and be armed by the BATF.

Yep. Today, it’s volunteers. One day, it will be a Citizen Service Requirement. Then, finally it will be a knock on the door and a forced resettlement to a uranium mine “for the good of the People”.

Very scary statement of his. But not surprising. He still thinks he can muster human drones in his perpetual campaign trail and have them blindly push his agenda. Sadly, there are a lot of them....but still more of us. I hope.

He wants an army of volunteers for his own purposes. BUT he has ordered that thousands of companies, including the film industry, cannot have ‘interns’ that are unpaid. He really thinks he can have his cake and eat it too!

Twenty minutes ago they were demonizing unpaid interns. So it’s ok to work for free if it is serving The Won?

-— the Office of Personnel Management shall, within 120 days of the date of this memorandum, issue guidance to agencies on developing and improving federal recruitment strategies for participants in national service,” -—

Like most liberals, Obama views human behavior in a very mechanical way: he ignores free will. He believes that, if you push a person toward a door, the person will go through the door. But in real life, the person may turn left or right, or even pull a gun on you. This is why they can’t forsee the real-world consequences of their policies, and why government gets caught up in its own underwear.

In his mind, issuing “guidance to agencies on developing and improving federal recruitment strategies for participants in national service,” will result in a bunch of Young Pioneers goose-stepping through Washington, when, in reality, this memo will result in nothing other than training junkets to Las Vegas for bureaucrats.

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.

“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”.

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.

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).

Partnerships to Advance Government Priorities

The task force will develop public-private partnerships to expand national service.

But of course. Values ("priorities") dictated by government edict = forced worship of i.e. prostration to Fedzilla.

That's what happens when people feast upon and embrace lies. A partnership implies an agreement and arrangement between equals. Who in their right mind thinks that any private entity can function as a co-equal with the beast system? The beast system makes the laws. All compromise is the responsibility of the subservient. It's a master-servant relationship with willing servants who allow the government to determine (draw or erase) their moral boundaries. Greedy for power and validation, they demand that the rest of us do the same.

Those who resist and steadfastly insist that their value system is not dictated by government is going to be (if not already) marked for destruction by the beast system.

Today it is the wedding cake bakers who refuse to bake cakes for fake and perverse government-invented "marriages". Tomorrow the list will include all those who won't adopt whatever debased "government priorities" (values) the beast demands compliance to next.

I do, too; the idea of forcing students to volunteer (think about those words) is absurd.

"...as part of a larger effort to boost community service throughout the country."

...so each of the local government administrators can continue to rake in hundreds of thousands per year and keep an eye out for regulatory violations and violations of political correctness (revenues/debt)? It won't go on forever. There's not enough production of useful things (real revenues) to support them, and no one wants to pay each local, designated, approved landlord (kingpin) for zoned space to run a small manufacturing operation.

We'll languish in the decline, until folks start minding their own business and staying out of the way of real workers. And when it's all said and done, lowtechs will rule.

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

That’s right; if the government was going to have to house & feed them anyway, why not have them work for a living? Without it we would have had a communist revolution; remember that May Day started here (the one country it isn’t celebrated).
