By your tone I see you do not accept Obama's call to service.
Why? Obama holds the higher moral ground. You must be one of the Fox news, tea bagger, racists. You need help. Evoking a god also betrays your untenable position. Like Obama said during the election. Those people who hold onto their beliefs and guns must be forced out of their comfort zones.
You will be moved.
One way or another you will do the right thing.
The greedy Republican capitalist dogma of the past has been rejected.
You will live for your fellow human and reject your corrupt ideology of self interest.
I would not be surprised if after a couple years under the new Health Care system that Service would be a contingent part of whether someone is allowed access.
That should change your tune.
CHANGE is here!
The scary part is, I can forsee this in our future if things don't "Change".

That is just sick.
People here in the inner city community have NOTHING!
They are hungry and poor and the best the racist right can offer is "get a job". That's just sad and morally wrong.
The community should be given the best the country can offer as just a small compensation for their pain and suffering.
A little part would be the free health care Obama has promised.
But no the racist Repukes don't want to give even that...sad.
2010 will soon be here and all Republicans will be swept out of office at every level and then we will see some real justice.
Just wait.
CHANGE is here, and more is coming.

I wasn't aware that the only people suckin' on the government teet were of any particular race. So, I guess that makes you the racist. I didn't say "get a job", which they should. I said they should be required to do community service. If I'm required to help those less fortunate than myself, then those I'm helping should be happy to give something to their community in return. Instead, the majority of them will sit on their collective assess and watch tv, sell drugs, drive a nicer car than I do, and make no attempt whatsoever to help themselves.

I don't understand the bitterness towards those who have more. If no one had more, who would be taking care of the less fortunate? My problem is that so many of the less fortunate choose to live the way they do.

There will always be someone who has more than me, and someone who has less. We are not all equal, we are not all alike, and no matter how much of my money the government takes from me and gives to the less fortunate, they will still never be like me. They will not be successful, and they will not be satisified. The will still be pathetic, miserable people who have no direction or aspiration in their lives.

Have a nice day.

Self enflicted pain and suffering blacks make their own community and in return the communities makes blacks culture. If you raise children with poor social skill they are what you make them. It doesn't have to be that way a change in the way black society interact with the rest of society is the only way things will ever change. And multitrillions of government aid that already been wasted on a society is proof that you're dump money down a hole with social programs. The so-called black leaders of the community need to adress the problems within their community instead of continually pointing their finger at the big bad white man. Who's people have only set up programs,charities,legislation ,and giving of themself personally to help the black communities. Name one charity aimed to help impoverished white which out number impoverish black 3 to 1 by any ethinic orginazation. Get off your a55 and clean up the mess you've made and quit playing the victim.

And whose fault is that? Quit breeding until you can afford it. Public eduction is free, and there are handouts everywhere for people in the inner city. You have no excuse, and no one to blame but yourselves. If you don't use the handouts already available to your best advantage, then you are to blame.

Grow up, and quit looking for a free ride. Nothing is free, including Obamacare.

That is the kind of attitude that is destroyed the country.
Your greed and self interest betray you.
Humans have no purpose or higher calling then to serve and help their fellow human.
Currently Americans have been given a choice to donate their time and effort and have failed the test.
Hopefully Obama will have some real teeth in Serve.org and we can punish those who do not volunteer for one of the many worthy endeavors.
CHANGE is here!
Be a part of it or be dragged along.
Either way you will accept the moral righteousness of Obama.
moral righteousness of Obama?

ahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah ahahahahahahahahah

Obama will never be my moral compass.
I prefer not to be steered to hell.

I disagree with you on this one.

Any required service can be easily turned into an extremely corrupted
system. It is a form of slavery.

What gives you reason to believe that health care will be free?

How will it be paid for?

Mildred asked Larry King for some head and want to get him in bed in order to deal with the loss of her husband. She wanted to check out Larry King's wet noodle. Conrad Johnson's son said that he can deal with things by masturbating in the closet while reading a playboy magazine. It is possible that Mildred will get depressed and commit suicide by hanging herself in the bathroom shower at home and the childrn will go out and commit crimes such as robbery and murder. Her hokey friends Derick Lane and son Desmond may overdose on sleeping pills and dring car antifreeze to commit suicide or go out and rob banks and burn the banks down and steal money. Mildred says that she needs to get in bed with white men like Donald Trump so she can be happy or Conrad Johnson's son will look as white women like Pamela Anderson while masterbating in the closet to deal with the loss of his father on the metrobus.

It's only slavery if you're not being compensated for it.

oh really
im looking to see if any of his friends joined the
military
like bill ayers ?
how bout all his friends from the machine in congress
i dont see any of them with military service to their name

then his wife creates public allies and wants school kids to go around and pick up trash

while she makes 300k on the board of a hospital

Joe Biden is ex military
he had a 250k combined total income last year
with only 2000 in charitable contributions

volunteer ?

Wrong to get a job when others can support you, that sir is just sad and morally wrong. And it is not racist to say support yourself, race card fraud. Did you see the Change of last weeks elections in New Jersey and Virginia, who got swept out...change is coming and more of it, Awake from your sleep
