Workers: Embrace your mandatory volunteerism!

Comrades, I am out today, but wanted to throw a few links up.

On the heels of the very interesting Mike Rowe, of “Dirty Jobs”, and his thoughts on work, dignity and AIG rage, some very disturbing reading, much of it thanks to Larwyn:

Every American a Volunteer: the incomprehensible legislation that is speeding through Congress and will take away your right to do or not do a thing. So much for Freedom in America, circa 2009.

Obama presses
for more power, less transparency. What you O-lovers voted for, no? I bet you didn’t realize that “hope and change,” when played backwards becomes: “More power and more power.”

And less sovereignty. I’m convinced that if President Obama actually wanted to serve the US Economy he’d be staffing Treasury, and not throwing us into bankruptcy. Instead, he leaves Treasury unstaffed, seems unconcerned about it, and seems to be using Geithner to ummm…manage a transition.

Also, Comrades, remember when Michelle Obama said, “Barack will never let you go back to the way you used to live…” She meant that. And when you play that backwards, you know what it sounds like? “Arbeit macht frei.” Or, it might be “more power for me, less freedom for you.” I have a hearing loss, as you know, so I could be wrong. Doublespeak is tough to make out.

Obama for America: the first president to need his own trained brownshirts. Getting paid to cause trouble. All hail our glorious President Chaos, who will free us from the constraints of our own dreams and motivations!

Vlad Lenin: We must instruct the people to hate. Let’s see…hate…hmmmm…”Hey, AIG slaves workers, capitalist pigs we’re coming for your children! And your propane grills! Ummm…got it. Check.

A fella who lived under communism: Knows what he sees.

Chesterton was correct. When people stop believing in something, they’ll believe in anything. All of those people who threw off the shackles of religion because it was “unfree” and “guilt-inducing,” consider your new socialist religion, which is unfree and Guilt promoting.

The founder of the festival?

Profit for me but not for thee.
Comrades! How come all of these people looking to take away bonuses and regulate salaries are such unrepentant, rich capitalist pigs? Are they hypocrites or just you know, better than the rest of us.

America moves toward abandoning Israel. There’s a shocker, Comrades.

Fiends? I am sad to read this.

The Budget: Who dictated it for the last two years? The graph is terrifying.

Time to undo the rescue? Too late.

DO NOT BE AFRAID. Everything happens for a reason. All is in place for a purpose. You just hunker down, stock up on some tuna, candles, batteries, ammo, duct tape and good books, keep the family close, get quiet and pray – and stay positive, because if you believe all things happen to God’s glory, well…here come glory.

Things are moving very fast for a reason, and after being delayed for 8 years, this train ain’t stopping for anything.

Comrades! Let’s dance!

    Arbeit macht frei (not Arbecht)

    But good post.

    ‘(a) Required National Service Corps-

    At least they are not really trying to hide it.

    I think volunteering is great. I do not do enough of it. But this is well, a but creepy.

    At least so far my kids haven’t come home from school singing “Tomorrow Belongs to Me”

    That they would come after propane and propane accessories is hardly surprising, I tell you what. They oppose everything that Hank Hill has ever stood for.

    America moves toward abandoning Israel

    What with so much going on these days, it was easy for this to not get that much attention, but a few weeks ago Hillary was caught being honest again when she said, “Whatever we do will be done thoughtfully in consultation with our friends and Israel.”

    I’ve added a link and quote to a collection of articles … The Give or Take Act? • It’s charity at the point of a gun.

  • Joe Odegaard

    It is ironic that “mandatory” service, probably unconstitutional under the 13th amendment, should be proposed by this particular president. Something is wrong here.

  • ScottNehring

    Reading HR1388 creeps me out.

    Has anyone else noticed they keep referring to “The Corporation”? Its defined as:

    (1) “Government corporation” means a corporation owned or controlled by the Government of the United States; and
    (2) “Government controlled corporation” does not include a corporation owned by the Government of the United States.

    I get that corporation means a Fannie Mae like entity, but does #2 this mean we can be compelled to give our services to ACORN and others given the corporation can direct resources to whichever project they’d like?

    Note the edit “by striking ‘camp’ both places such term appears and inserting ‘campus’” Wouldn’t want to call these things “camps” now would we?

    Combined with the “Clearing Houses” under TITLE 42/CHAPTER 129/SUBCHAPTER I/Division H/§ 12653a – what will it take for people to get the clue these folks ain’t on our side?

    Why are we are we letting this happen?

    I hope you were out buying supplies for your bunker.

    I don’t have a bunker. I have an apartment. My wife and I are too broke to stock up on supplies and we don’t own a single gun.

    Me? I’ve been watching a few of these Ronald Reagan movies that they’ve been showing on Turner Classic Movies lately. They are actually fairly good.

    As for practical advice? What I tell people all the time — prepare and expect the worst, but pray for the best.

    Besides, too much of the country (world) has been delusional for too long and perhaps the only way that things will really change for the future is if we finally hit bottom, if we just let them implement all their loony left ideas only to see, as a direct result, everything come crashing down. Perhaps that is the only way that they will learn.
