<quoted text>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.
Didn't you previously post under the name "Mark from Chicago" advocating for genocide for all those who oppose anything that drips from the mouth of your "dear leader"? And that we will all be made to serve 'the one" by punishment and force?
Sure sounds like the same identical crap.

An indentured servant is a laborer under contract to an employer for a fixed period of time, typically three to seven years, in exchange for their transportation, food, clothing, lodging and other necessities. Unlike a slave, an indentured servant is required to work only for a limited term specified in a signed contract, which I have no problem with. I find it perfectly reasonable that if I'm going to pay you, that you should provide a service in return.

Do you truly think that our government can sustain that without abuse of power?

I don't think so.

"The term indentured servant arose in the context of a system for financing immigration to North America primarily during the colonial period. Europeans who could not afford passage to America sold themselves to merchants and seamen in exchange for transportation to the colonies.[2] This arrangement was spelled out in a contract—called an indenture—in which the emigrant agreed to work without compensation for a fixed term, typically four or five years."

Again, I don't have a problem with community service. What makes you, or anyone else, think that someone is supposed to get a free ride? Can a system be taken advantage of? Absolutely. That's why I hate working my ass off knowing that my tax dollars are supporting people who think they are entitled to my money. Joe Taxpayer is being raked over the coals, but no one is shedding a tear over that.

You mean like the way they abuse the power they have over my tax dollars? I am legally obliged to pay taxes, and I have no say in how those tax dollars are used, or how the programs that spend those tax dollars dole them out. Isn't this basically the same thing as indentured servitude? I think so.

The only thing that needs to change is the sponge mentality by certain folks.Take, Take, Take and never contribute to society except giving Public Defenders a job.Most of your poor people CHOOSE to stay down.When you see generation after generation never succeding-theres a pattern.Change YOUR OWN attitude and change YOUR OWN life.Life is about making better choices-not freeloading off of the hard working taxpers.When people are eligible for Social Security it should be based on their yearly contribution.Stop blaming the whites and the Government for your lack of Initiative and Motivation.I'm sick of seeing people with 6 or more children with a 2nd grade education recieving housing and benefits.Hard work is the key!!!!!

Post after post of racist whites who blame the black man.
Need I remind you of Katrina.
That was President Bush, a white man, who killed thousands of poor blacks.

The Repuks are a bunch of deniers.
They deny their social crimes vs the black man.
They deny their killing of thousands of blacks in New Orleans
They deny global warming.
Now they want to deny Black men their right to health care.
You people really are dangerous radicals and need the department of Homeland on your trail.

By the way, if you're serious, you're doing more harm than good for your "people."

I lve being called a racist it no longer has a bad meaning it is a badge that says no matter what you want to make up I have the courage to disagree even with the messiah. The term is thrown around so freely at anyone that disagrees with anyone that might be a minority it has no real meaning. However you do fit the orriginal intention of the meaning racist. Some one that uses race to detirmine their opinions of someone else. Please call me a racist it means more to me than it used to to the minorities LMFAO
