The Manufactured Rights favorite token black man, until he endorsed Dictator President-Elect Obama, Gen. Colin Powell wants all of us to give some of our time to “Public Service”. For myself personally, when I hear a career Government Worshiper tell me to “Volunteer” for “Public Service”, I get a bit nervous. Because as soon as the number of volunteer’s starts to fall it stops being “Public Service”, and turns into Mandatory Slavery.
All in the Name of the Glorious United Socialistic States of Amerika.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Gen. Colin Powell asked Americans to consider their day off on Martin Luther King Day a “day on” instead. Powell, an honorary co-chair of the inauguration, announced the Presidential Inaugural Committee’s “Renew America Together” volunteering initiative on Friday to take place on Jan. 19, the King holiday.
Renew American Together!! Hallelujah!! Glory be to Government!! And to start these worshiping services on the Patron Saint of Government’s day, is just, overwhelming!!
“I think it will capture the imagination of the American people,” Powell said, adding that there was a “fervor” for the new administration that should be tapped. The goal is to make public service a greater priority throughout American life. “It’s not enough, I think, just to do it one day a year,” Powell said.
In all honesty, if volunteering for the Government is your thing, that’s fine with me. It’s when I see Government Spokesmen coming out and saying this will be a good thing for all of us, is when I get worried. That one size fits all mentality that prevails in Washington DC. needs to end.
For me volenteering my time at my local Catholic Charity or the Special Olympics is very humbling to me. It also suits my time better, than say, volunteering for some Public Works Project that will be ruined as soon as it’s done. Jimmy Carter anyone?
So go on and enjoy your service to the Government. Just don’t complain when they make it mandatory.
