    Obama, former community organizer in Chicago, now wants to organize the entire country. BO wants to establish a civil national defense force….along with all kinds of national community services monitored by the federal government….even requiring students to serve a set number of hours in service to the government….

    ....couching all this in his new "patriotism" of course…kinda like a draft for the non-military…gee, maybe we can call this "The Peoples Army"….and maybe we can wear red scarves and blue or brown shirts…while running around doing the bidding of THE STATE…and btw...where are the billion$ for all this going to come from...?

    Yes...if it's the government "giving" out jobs...or...per Obama's plans...requiring service...

    ....any individual job or volunteer project from the bottom up is far better for our country than mandated government service created from the top down...

    mandating it would be a bad idea. if it is created as more of a scholarship type system, i would have no problem with it. would give $ for college while cutting down loans and getting community help from it.

    Where exactly does it say required besides in this article? Most states already require some community service hours to graduate from high school...wasn't that part of Bush's no child left behind fiasco where he held his breath and threatened to pull federal funding for schools of states that don't toe the national line? Mehopes you were crying about it then.

    The article is also misleading in that it sounds like people will be getting paid for community service but it's actually a tax credit. And we know how wingnuts hate anything that cuts taxes.

    Government should not be in the business of giving jobs to anyone. So yes it is bad. Our government screws up just about everything they touch, so I really do not get why liberals are in such a hurry to put them in charge of more.

    First Obama was a Marxist, then he was a Communist, then he was the anti-Christ, now he's a fascist.

    You guys are running out of scary monikers to pin on the next President of the United States.
