    Yeah, that giving back to the country really sucks.

    An hour a week to help people in need, the nerve.

    I guess 4 tours in the sandbox is a better alternative.

    You were in the Peace Corps, weren't you Passerby?

    I would say that counts as giving back.

    Where do you get "giving back " from ?
    Do you think this is like JFK's dream ?
    Asking someone to help comes from their charity.
    Telling everyone its mandatory is illegal and plainly wrong.

    you should watch the news or read the business section of a newspaper if you're educationally able to. What pelosi and her group have done to this economy is not distorted by alcohol.

    Have you gone to the Change.gov website?

    Read it, they are offering $4000 for 100 hours of service for college students, and setting a goal of 50 hrs/year for middle and high school students. Nothing is mandatory.

    Go to the source instead of buying into some hysteria pushed by someone withtheir own agenda.

    Since when is is it a bad thing to sacrifice for others?

    Relative sections from the site for the lazy:

    Expand Service-Learning in Our Nation's Schools: Obama and Biden will set a goal that all middle and high school students do 50 hours of community service a year. They will develop national guidelines for service- learning and will give schools better tools both to develop programs and to document student experience. Green Job Corps: Obama and Biden will create an energy-focused youth jobs program to provide disadvantaged youth with service opportunities weatherizing buildings and getting practical experience in fast-growing career fields.

    Require 100 Hours of Service in College: Obama and Biden will establish a new American Opportunity Tax Credit that is worth $4,000 a year in exchange for 100 hours of public service a year.

    So just when did O and Biden get their teaching degrees ?

    "experience in fast-growing career fields " now that one is funny.
    Just how people do you know that have careers in the weatherizing fields ?

    Hey Passerby, if you have the stomach for it read http://www.examiner.com/x-536-Civil-Liberties-Examiner~y2008m11d7-Obamas-
    compulsory-service-proposal-becomes-explicit
    and pay attention to the part about what is on the google cache. Seems the words mandate/require/compulsory were indeed used back in September and later changed to a less threatening tone.
    To answer your cutting remarks of:
    There is nothing wrong with voluntary service to any organization that is worthy of your time. But when it is mandated or required it is socialistic in design.
