My 8 y/o daughter is appalled that she might be ‘forced’ to join ‘a club’ when she’s older that she doesn’t want to join!!
(Then she says, can we get Hillary back for president?? LOL)
I’m curious, are illegal aliens exempt from this, or could we get them to do the work that real Americans just won’t do? Cuts out the middleman!
I noticed that, it’s quite frightening. I knew Obama would be bad, but he has already exceeded my wildest tinfoil conspiracy theories. What will our country look like one year from now?
Dangerous to say the least! This bill is so unconstitutional on so many levels it is staggering!
I am aware of it. I’ve contributed to it some...
I’m just thinking that it may be an even bigger job than I thought.
Just tell her she’s not going to be “forced” to do ANYTHING that daddy doesn’t want her to do.
This is one dad that’ll “put down” a few gov’t thugs when they come to enforce the mandatory voluntary service.
Barack Obama will require you to work. He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you put down your divisions. That you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zones. That you push yourselves to be better. And that you engage. Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual, uninvolved, uninformed.
Any idea on the ages of these “young people”?
I just want to know if I’ll be forced into slavery and if I should plan on birthing any future children in other countries.
The way things are going, the Boy Scouts will be condemned by Congress for ‘hate crimes’ and ‘promoting intolerance’ and disbanded by law, forcing anyone in a uniform into a secret underground (remember the Wolverines in Red Dawn?)
Eagle Scouts will be viciously eradicated as being the worst of the worst offenders!!
/sarc (or is it prophesy?)
Tribes get tons of money from the federal government. I observed a local tribal member at Starbucks yesterday. He was wearing a black shirt with Obama's head/face adorned by a head dress. The text said, "Commander in Chief". "Yes we Can". "Yes We Did". The dumb ass is proud of voting for Commie Obammie. I hope he enjoys especially hard labor in his slave camp.
Perhaps, but it looks like they might try ‘forcing’ the elderly (55+) into mandatory service as well!!!
It had a specific meaning at one time, but now it seems Orwell’s 1984 lexicon is being invoked: voluntary = mandatory.
I suggest a Conservative party that is not adverse to endorsing Conservative Republicans. Let the Republican candidates come to the Conservatives for the endorsement and that core constituency. If not, oppose them in the primary. Caucus with the Republicans to form the majority in Congress.
That’s the quote Mr. B!
“This is one dad thatll put down a few govt thugs when they come to enforce the mandatory voluntary service.”
It won’t be that way—it’ll be more subtle. With the federal government continually expanding their reach, jobs, college, medical care.... Everything will be tied to “volunteer” service.
Disambiguator says: Minnick voted FOR this monstrosity.
Swing and a miss!
I just contacted my senators. I can’t see Vitter voting for this mess, but Landrieu probably will. I can’t believe 70 Repubs voted for this crap, including Cao from New Orleans!!! What a bunch of weenies!
Didn’t someone pass a 13th Amendment to the constitution?
You can see here:
My Republican rep. voted for it.... But he also voted for SCHIP and has hitched himself to McCain’s wagon via the “Main Street Republicans” group.
Disgusted, yes. Surprised? No.
You definitely won’t be the only one!
Very disturbing. It feels like indoctrination. I don’t even recognize this country anymore.
Would time spent protesting in front of an abortion clinic count towards “volunteer service”.
They probably just read the title and thought that something called GIVE must be good.
So fitting, isn’t it?
DC takes your freedom and calls it giving.
That would be a “hate crime”.
Guaranteed - Christianity will be de facto illegal soon.
During the campaign, Michelle Obama made a telling remark at one of her campaign stops.
She said words like, “My husband is going to make you work.”
For weeks I wondered what she meant.
At one point I wondered if she just meant we would have to work our tails off to recover from punitive taxation and still put food on the table.
Now I realize that their plans are much more developed than that.
My son is a scout, and he knows about service. It’s given with a joyful heart, not mandated by Uncle Sam.
I’ve written my two senators. I urge everyone to do the same.
Phone calls and emails are good, but not enough, in my opinion.
Fortunately the majority of our government is made up of limp wristed, pussified, metrosexual asshats. If the military can be found to be on the side of the people the lot of them would be folded in a heartbeat.
Will someone please zap this information to Glenn Beck? He needs to get on this NAO!!!!!
Any idea on the number of EX military in America?
THOSE are the guys that I’m looking to.
For any "Christian" that supports socialism and democRats,
2 Cor 9:7
Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
My rep voted for it too. I just sent him a piece of my mind including post#25, asking what is he thinking?????
what a disappointment. not a surprise..
Booooo! My congressman voted for this crap. And my senators are morons... No hope from WA state. sorry guys.
Authorizes the Corporation to treat September 11th annually as a National Day of Service and Remembrance.
I don’t see any possibility that this will not easily pass the Senate.
I will call and write them. It won’t work, they don’t give a sh*t. So my answer to Rahm and zer0 is this:
COME MAKE ME, COME MAKE MY FAMILY!!! None of will be serving you, kiss my as*
Not yet, and I was wondering the same. On its surface - basically all ages. The text of the bill mentions "elementary", "middle", "secondary" schools, in addition to college. We have 4 girls to worry about: between the ages of our brand new one only 2 weeks old to age 18 who WAS ready to go to college.
Hitler youth Pocket pool????
I’m afraid people will have to learn the hard way, but please take into consideration the CONSERVATIVE children who will be harmed by this - like my four beautiful daughters. Your liberal nephews will probably be brainwashed enough to not see it as “servitude” - at least not initially. But, for the conservative children in our country this would be devastating to them psychologically and emotionally, and that is the WHOLE POINT of their actions.
I know you were probably being sarcastic, but on the off chance you were not, please consider calling your Senators about this — if not for your own family’s future generations, would you please consider doing it for mine?
there corrected it.
is there a House Minority Whip or does he wear a leather hood and is he waiting for the gimp?
yes but it seems that the folks it was enacted to protect seems to think it only applies to them.
Well, the other day Obama made it so the military couldn’t sell spent copper casings to civilian markets for reloading and such. They now have to DESTROY all of it.
Obama definitely has a plan, and has probably had one for quite a while... It’s not like Ayers and his minions haven’t been waiting for this day for a long, long time. They know exactly what they’re doing. I wonder what kind of camps they will have for those of us who refuse to comply? Perhaps Ayers dreams of 25 million hard-core capitalists and Constitutionalists, and Patriots being destroyed is something Obama will attempt to see realized.
Perhaps I’m getting ahead of myself, but all one has to do is look to history for clues as to where this is all headed.
Ill be proud to stand next to you and many others.
I think the ranks are starting to form.
You hear it everywhere you go. The smell of smoke is in the air.
They repealed that order, but only because people and the NRA raised hell.
I just read something about
“Are ex military militias more dangerous than civilian militias?”
Well, heck yes they are. But of course, since this analysis was written from a leftwing point of view, they gradually, subtly, conflated the conservative resistance mood of the country with neo-Nazis, white supremicists, and Timothy McVeigh.
You’re right my FRiend.
They are in for a surprise.

Getting the framework in place....
Thirteenth Amendment to the Constitution:
Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime where of the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.
I sense a conflict.
These people are already putting some commercials out. “Give Back” Give back WHAT?? I never took anything. Let those who have been scamming welfare for years, or raised on it give back, to those of us who paid their way all these years!
Volunteering AND charity is what we in America do best and do better than any nation on earth. These programs will take away our ability to. The govt will instead being forcing people to “do” and “give” (via taxes) their pet projects only, will force people to work in organizations that we do not support and wisely steer clear of, in the name of diversity, taking us out of our comfort zones. These programs are against many articles in the constitution! They force people out of wisely chosen safe areas and environments, and forces them into dangerous ones.
