Anybody Remember This Document?

The President Elect has his new website up and running; Change.gov. Just wanted to get that out of the way and tell my readers that I have been poking around off and on for about 18 hours.  Found something interesting:

America Serves

“When you choose to serve — whether it’s your nation, your community or simply your neighborhood — you are connected to that fundamental American ideal that we want life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness not just for ourselves, but for all Americans. That’s why it’s called the American dream.”The Obama Administration will call on Americans to serve in order to meet the nation’s challenges. President-Elect Obama will expand national service programs like AmeriCorps and Peace Corps and will create a new Classroom Corps to help teachers in underserved schools, as well as a new Health Corps, Clean Energy Corps, and Veterans Corps. Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by developing a plan to require 50 hours of community service in middle school and high school and 100 hours of community service in college every year. 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.

Remember This Document:

United States Constitution

United States Constitution

I suggest that if you do not have a copy of this document and the attached amendments; GET ONE!

The Thirteenth Amendent:

The Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution officially abolished and continues to prohibit slavery, and with limited exceptions, such as those convicted of a crime, prohibits involuntary servitude. It was adopted on December 6, 1865.
I will continue to poke around the President Elect’s site and bring you more news as I find it.
Also, if anyone has the video of The One’s Wife in Canton, Ohio the weekend before the election saying that Seniors will have to work for their Social Security benefits – please email me at diamondtiger12@gmail.com.  I am still looking for it…and I know it’s out there.

    Are they going to make Congress members do community service to0? Good ridience, just make Congress community service, and make it unpaid, without benifits. Most of them are already millionares.
    When did we know President-elect Obama to even follow the Constitution? I thought he wanted to scrap the thing, or tweak it to his liking.

    Yeah, I sort of thought involuntary servitude was off the table since 1865.

    All these imbeciles are doing is laying the groundwork for a Republican landslide in 2010. At which point Republicans will enter Washington as liberators.

    "On every question of construction carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed." --Thomas Jefferson, letter to William Johnson, 1823
