Forced "Volunteerism" Under Obama

Please don't look at the whole site until Monday (have some fun this weekend), but this from change.gov, the Obama transition website, is too scary to let pass. From the horse's mouth:

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.

Note that not only our children will be forced into Obama's personal idea of "community service," but seniors look to be next in line.

"Want that next social security check granny? Better sign up 150 new voters in this inner city project first."

Who'd have thought the first Black president would seek to violate the 13th Amendment? We live in strange times, indeed.
