Doing Time for your Country under Obama

Its a great idea to pay college students $40 an hour for 100 hours of community service, thereby paying $4,000 of their college tuition. Still $4,000 is hardly enough money to pay for a whole semester.

It is clearly undecipherable what Obama has in mind for high school students, looks like they don’t get the monay, just the duty, good luck with that one. When high school students are already burdened with just making the grade and saving for college with a part time job, 50 hours is way, way too much, its more like 25 hours spread over 4 years, that’s the reality.

And what about the youth and women represented in Obama’s administration officially?

All I see are the has beens coming up, the ones who brought the system down already, its not a new deal, its the same ole deal.

“Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by setting a goal that all middle school and high school students do 50 hours of community service a year and by developing a plan so that all college students who conduct 100 hours of community service receive a universal and fully refundable tax credit ensuring that the first $4,000 of their college education is completely free. 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.”–America Serves
