And You Thought We Were Exaggerating


A note from Radarsite: First off -- we have been fooled before, and this may not actually be from Obama's official website, but it certainly seems to be. This then is the first sign. This is what we've been warning you about all these months. This is cross posted directly from what purports to be Obama's Official President -Elect Headquarters. So here we go. And I'm afraid the thoughts of being able to say 'I told you so' are meager compensation for what we all now must face. - rg

America Serves

"When you choose to serve -- whether it's your nation, your community or simply your neighborhood -- you are connected to that fundamental American ideal that we want life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness not just for ourselves, but for all Americans. That's why it's called the American dream."

The Obama Administration will call on Americans to serve in order to meet the nation’s challenges. President-Elect Obama will expand national service programs like AmeriCorps and Peace Corps and will create a new Classroom Corps to help teachers in underserved schools, as well as a new Health Corps, Clean Energy Corps, and Veterans Corps. Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by developing a plan to require 50 hours of community service in middle school and high school and 100 hours of community service in college every year. Obama will encourage retiring Americans to serve by improving programs available for individuals over age 55, while at the same time promoting youth programs such as Youth Build and Head Start.


[Update-Susan Duclos] The original wording was caught as a screenshot by hillaryclinton forum, bless their hearts and I am adding it here for those claiming the word require was never there.

  1. I do believe that Hitler did this same thing back in the 1930's.

  2. Notwithstanding the fascist Obama's outlook, it's telling that he, who has not volunteered for anything productive -- and, no, I do not call his non-productive, me-me-me terms as a state legislator and U.S. senator -- must now take this tack with giving.

    Clearly, he lacks any understanding that giving is from the heart.

    And I cannot imagine most of the civilian-service draftees being very excited about being told that they must serve.

    But, then, they've never had to face the draft.

    As Obama has not.

    BTW: While we may not have written about this particular fascistic move by Obama or his plans to do so, many many of us for months have been not just calling him a fascist by trying to show that he's just that.

    Perhaps once his lemmings have found they've lost some freedoms they'll awaken?

  3. They changed the site! I was in a hurry, meant to save a screen shot and didn't. Did you? They took 'require' out.

  4. And what happens when we refuse? No high school or college diploma? No social security checks? A thirty-day jail sentence? Loss of iPod privileges?

    Do you think Mr. Berg will take on a class action suit with, oh, about 55 million plaintiffs?

    This is not said in jest. Mass litigation may be our only recourse.

  5. Ah yes! Hitler did the same thing in the thirties.

    Every President over the past 20 years has tried to encourage volunteerism. Obama's plan would give money (financial aid credit) for college for those willing to participate.

    The program is voluntary. It is not mandatory.

  6. Here's a hint. If you're going to lie to people don't post a link right in your post that shows how you lied. When you start adding and deleting verbage to twist words around it sort of wrecks your credibility.

  7. Nice try pegging socialism/facism to Obama. But most High Schools nowadays already have a graduation requirement of 50 hours community service. The only thing Obama did wrong here was propose something that has already been implemented.

  8. Mandated government service may not be his only plans. It may be just the beginning. BO will then take out the conservatives on the radio by implementing the Fairness Doctrine. He is ALREADY trying to by pass FOX NEWS (he didn't invite them to his first speech today). Eventually he will take over the internet (using his current army of bloggers). He will use them to shut down conservative blog sites and control internet information flow.

    Welcome to the New World.

  9. If you are going to alter what you copied, it's not a good idea to link to it. Per the source:

    Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by setting a goal that all middle school and high school students do 50 hours of community service a year and by developing a plan so that all college students who conduct 100 hours of community service receive a universal and fully refundable tax credit ensuring that the first $4,000 of their college education is completely free.

    Unjustified fear is one thing, altering meaning to feed fear erodes your credibility and left me wondering if you lack morals and ethics.

  10. It's voluntary. Get over it.

  11. Except for, you know, you totally misquote it. Here is the quote from the website:

    Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by setting a goal that all middle school and high school students do 50 hours of community service a year and by developing a plan so that all college students who conduct 100 hours of community service receive a universal and fully refundable tax credit ensuring that the first $4,000 of their college education is completely free.

    Notice the total lack of the word require

  12. do you know anything about checks and balances.....Democracy?

    This is NOT a dictatorship.....Obama cant just do whatever he wants.....he cant force anyone to do anything.....I see your name is lonelyconservative......seems like you will stay loney with crazy thoughts like this.....

    Listen, I voted for Bush....twice......I gave him a chance, despite his past.....he let me down after years of being president.....

    You might consider the same....give Obama a chance and then hate him afterwards if you can find a reason to......all you are doing now is giving into paranoia........you are letting rumors run your life.....cheers

  14. 92% of the blacks voted for Obama.
    If I must believe the media here in Holland, 80% of the Dutch would do the same thing if they had the opportunity.

    The One is in power because of one thing only: his stupid race. Nobody wants a white old man anymore. No matter if he's more capable of running the big nation ore not. That is not the point for them. These modern people are so brain dead that they stopped thinking for themselves. They have become pure anti-white racists and environmental fundamentalists. These brain washed madman are willing to destroy every inch of civilization our ancestors build if the One will tell them to.

    I don't know if the One is as evil as the OtherOne (yet) but the signs are all on red. I'm afraid we all are walking the path to hell once again without taking any lessons from the past.

    The western world is a walking deadman.

    And yes, you told us so.

  16. Get a clue "anon". The truth about you commie scum has been posted for several months. Some of us have been doing this for years.

    We don't have to prove a thing. Your commie leader will do that, make no mistake about it.

    You don't even have the courage to post a real name yet you expect intelligent people to believe anything you say? Hahaha.

    Reality is a merciless teacher.

    I will not submit. I will fight to my last breath for the REAL America not this soggy box of mush we have been handed.
