    Exactly five weeks to the day, almost to the hour even, from when my personal life imploded it all came full circle and righted itself. No details for youse mugs but new playmates have been secured (yes that's plural, and THAT happened this evening also) I secured an awesome job,again this evening) amazingly enough in this part of the world through connections. This job not only financially secures me but will cover start up costs on the new radio project in the works. Early spring is the roll out, name to be released closer to the date (but trust me it's an awesome one....fitting for the times, descriptive and just plain awesome. And it appears things fell into place just in time.

    Because today I was pointed by my bud Jeff Blanco to this;

    But from Barack Obama’s “Change.gov” website
    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.


    Now excuse me here for just one moment.

    The last I checked we had the 13th Amendment outlawing slavery. At best this is indentured servitude, since it does possess a set system for not being forced to work. But what makes it so pernicious is it is aimed at our children. They aren't studying enough now, judging by our still dismal test scores compared to the rest of the world. Obama is going to REQUIRE them to "serve" now, placing then in even greater danger of bad grades and failure in school.

    Or to be fair let's take another angle. Who, I wonder, would one think of when one thinks of those folks in society which have been forced by the state into community service against their will? Think real hard on this one folks, and ponder this for a moment. Every saturday (weather permitting) ojn the sides of roads in many states one can view as they roll along the beautiful highways and by ways of our scenic country folks in safety yellow vests (I know they look orange) picking up litter at the sides of those aforementioned roads.

    They are there because they have been sentenced to community service for some petty crime of which they have been convicted.

    So now one must ask themselves this simple question;

    Is Obama going to indenture our children or simply treat them like petty criminals?

    On the other side of this coin is obamas side, that community service strengthens the community and teaches them valuable skills. OF course it does, when you are teaching them thier most sought after skill is as a labor force so the literati and our Dear Leader can whisk by them in their limos and see a clean landscape.

    What this does in reality is take away one more thing a parent is supposed to be teaching their children about personal responsibility and helping their fellow man. It enforces government as boss and overseer and takes away personal drive to do community service because eventually the populace says "well, the government didn't tell me to do it so it's not my YOB man."

    This smacks of Borgish automatons being directed through the collective.

    This smacks of one more removal of our freedoms, the further erosion of our liberties and an attempt to show whitey who is in charge now.

    I played that race card cuzz it's worth double in the kitty, Speaking of double in the kitty how fast will BHO loosen regulations on the porn industry under the guise of these guys are too regulated. If we deregulate them they could put out more product, product that the average American public engages in regularly. (wait, I may like this rule)

    And what pray tell (oooops, shouldn't have used the word "pray") will the penalty be for noncompliance? Do you get kicked out of school? Do your parents get billed for your refusal to be treated like a criminal or a slave? Do you lose obamas most coveted award, the NEIGHBORHOOD WARDEN OFFICER position whose job it is to oversee the crews and report back to mien Buhrer?

    If this is how he is starting out, two days after the election, imagine what he will roll out next month.

    Sig Heil Obama Fuhrer, all our childrenz are belong to you.....

    So in the new spirit of the new America let's all sing this old classic song;

    Ol' man river,
    Dat ol' man river
    He mus'know sumpin'
    But don't say nuthin',
    He jes'keeps rollin'
    He keeps on rollin' along.

    He don' plant taters/tators,
    He don't plant cotton,
    An' dem dat plants'em
    is soon forgotten,
    But ol'man river,
    He jes keeps rollin'along.

    You an'me, we sweat an' strain,
    Body all achin' an' racket wid pain,
    Tote dat barge!
    Lif' dat bale!
    Git a little drunk
    An' you land in jail.

    Ah gits weary
    An' sick of tryin'
    Ah'm tired of livin'
    An' skeered of dyin',
    But ol' man river,
    He jes'keeps rolling' along.

    [Colored folks work on de Mississippi,
    Colored folks work while de white folks play,
    Pullin' dose boats from de dawn to sunset,
    Gittin' no rest till de judgement day.
    or musical part]

    Don't look up
    An' don't look down,
    You don' dast make
    De white boss frown.
    Bend your knees
    An'bow your head,
    An' pull date rope
    Until you' dead.)

    Let me go 'way from the Mississippi,
    Let me go 'way from de white man boss;
    Show me dat stream called de river Jordan,
    Dat's de ol' stream dat I long to cross.

    O' man river,
    Dat ol' man river,
    He mus'know sumpin'
    But don't say nuthin'
    He jes' keeps rollin'
    He keeps on rollin' along.

    Long ol' river forever keeps rollin' on...

    He don' plant tater,
    He don' plant cotton,
    An' dem dat plants 'em
    Is soon forgotten,
    but ol' man river,
    He jes' keeps rollin' along.

    Long ol' river keeps hearing dat song.
    You an' me, we sweat an' strain,
    Body all achin an' racked wid pain.
    Tote dat barge!
    Lif' dat bale!
    Git a little drunk
    An' you land in jail.

    Ah, gits weary
    An' sick of tryin'
    Ah'm tired of livin'
    An' skeered of dyin',
    But ol' man river,
    He jes'keeps rollin' along!
