President Obama is calling on federal agencies to use volunteers to accomplish their tasks as part of a larger effort to boost community service throughout the country.

The White House issued an executive order Friday -- Expanding National Service through Partnerships to Advance Government Priorities -- to establish a task force charged with improving national service and volunteering. The initiative seeks to align the American people’s commitment to service with the missions of federal agencies.

This is just unreal.

He orders the furlough of 650,000 (286,000 of whom are veterans themselves) Dept of Defense engineers, nurses, teachers, cops, etc - taking 20% of their pay, and yet he wants volunteers to coordinate with this "Corporation for National and Community Service" that he created?

I think he is trying to build his own Private Army.

Mark my words.

They'll be wearing black hoodies, carry Obamaphones, and be armed by the BATF.

Yep. Today, it’s volunteers. One day, it will be a Citizen Service Requirement. Then, finally it will be a knock on the door and a forced resettlement to a uranium mine “for the good of the People”.

Very scary statement of his. But not surprising. He still thinks he can muster human drones in his perpetual campaign trail and have them blindly push his agenda. Sadly, there are a lot of them....but still more of us. I hope.

I’ve aligned my commitment to service WRIST my Church, not a limp-wristed, pseudo potentate.

Yes, as long as there are colleges. But soon that bubble will burst, too.

Exactly. We’ll have a choice to vote for one candidate, and we had better hop to it.

He wants an army of volunteers for his own purposes. BUT he has ordered that thousands of companies, including the film industry, cannot have ‘interns’ that are unpaid. He really thinks he can have his cake and eat it too!

Twenty minutes ago they were demonizing unpaid interns. So it’s ok to work for free if it is serving The Won?

-— the Office of Personnel Management shall, within 120 days of the date of this memorandum, issue guidance to agencies on developing and improving federal recruitment strategies for participants in national service,” -—

Like most liberals, Obama views human behavior in a very mechanical way: he ignores free will. He believes that, if you push a person toward a door, the person will go through the door. But in real life, the person may turn left or right, or even pull a gun on you. This is why they can’t forsee the real-world consequences of their policies, and why government gets caught up in its own underwear.

In his mind, issuing “guidance to agencies on developing and improving federal recruitment strategies for participants in national service,” will result in a bunch of Young Pioneers goose-stepping through Washington, when, in reality, this memo will result in nothing other than training junkets to Las Vegas for bureaucrats.
