    I saw Obama's request that everyone serve, so I decided to go and take a look. The website asks that you put in a search for what you would like to do. Here are some of the responses:

    Your search for “hunt illegals on the border” near “Kansas City, MO” did not match any volunteering activities

    Your search for “Shut Nancy Pelosi up” near “Kansas City, MO” did not match any volunteering activities

    Your search for “Remove Democrats from office” near “Kansas City, MO” did not match any volunteering

    Your search for “Shutdown ACORN” near “Kansas City, MO” did not match any volunteering activities.

    Your search for “Mentor a angry white man” near “Kansas City, MO” did not match any volunteering activities

    Your search for “find the lazy a job” near “Kansas City, MO” did not match any volunteering activities

    Your search for “make welfare work for living” near “Kansas City, MO” did not match any volunteering

    I guess that the Obama regime can't use any of my talents. Oh well, I tried.

    I plan to serve the community if the next 'election' goes the way of the last one:
    Supply pre-measured and noosed ropes, along with maps to the best trees locally....... Bring your own Liberal politician.

    I took a different route and was pleasantly surprised to find out they aren't helping our adversaries either. :D

    Your search for “environmentalist” near “portland oregon” did not match any volunteering activities.

    Your search for “ban firearms” near “portland oregon” did not match any volunteering activities.

    Your search for “mentor democrat” near “portland oregon” did not match any volunteering activities.

    Your search for “green jobs” near “portland oregon” did not match any volunteering activities.

    Doesn't matter, as long as you can tell the jackboots that you do when they ask for your papers.

    I guess what it means is that Oregon and Kansas don't need any help. Sit back and relax guys.

    You just didn't look hard enough (or think outside the box [see below ~giggle~]).

    They enable you to create your own service project. All you need is an idea (and it seems that you have many).

    Suggestions from the official site in blue:

    Getting started

    While no two projects will be the same, successful projects will share a few common practices. We encourage you to incorporate the following elements into your service project:

    • Create a team with your friends and neighbors to share the effort
    • Set outcome-based goals and track your progress to those goals
    • Celebrate your successes together
    Step One: Identify Local Needs No one knows your community better than you and your neighbors do. This summer, take proactive steps to address the challenges you see daily and generate solutions that work in your neighborhood.
    Step Two: Build a Team Teams can help share the work, motivate members, and hold each other accountable. Teams build community. Ask your family, friends, colleagues, neighbors, and faith group members to serve with you.
    Step Three: Set a Goal Set a service goal for June 22 – September 11 and hold yourself accountable. Commit as individuals and as a team to making a measurable impact. Set your goals high to stretch yourself. Then keep track of how you are doing and designate someone to be responsible for updating the group on how you are progressing toward your goals. You’ll be surprised at how much you can do when you commit, focus, and follow through.
    Step Four: Serve Your Community The key to effective service is planning. Organize your materials, make confirmation calls and, if you have time, read supplemental materials before you volunteer.
    Step Five: Report and Celebrate Successes Your team members, the community, and the President want to know about your successes and hear your stories. Share your accomplishments by reporting your results. We will highlight the best stories throughout the summer.

    Let's use Sniper's idea as an example: Sniper could set up a house meeting, gathering local friends who are willing to help
    find the lazy a job. Perhaps you could interest more friends by doubling up your ideas and focus on finding the lazy a job removing democrats from office. With a single search, I found this: "We found 264 remove democrat jobs matching your search near Kansas City, MO."

    Wow! The power of positive thinking at work! You've identified a local need and set a goal that will serve your community. All that's left to do is build a team to accomplish your goal and report your successes to the President.

    Keep us posted on your progress! You are a true leader! [winkthumb]

    Two things Tracy, first. It's not that I didn't look hard enough, it's the fact that everytime that I saw Michelle O'Bummas face on that video, I would wretch so hard that I would pass out and the computer would time out and shut down.
    Secondly, why did you have to "find the lazy a job" Why couldn't you use, say "hunt illegals on the border" and "remove democrats from office" Now that would be a volunteer task worth under taking!!!! :oops:

    I found this strangely "stupid" for this site!

    Now, far be it from me to correct anyone, but for a guberment site you'd think they'd at least know how to spell?
    Egipt? (I thought it had a "y" in there someplace!)
    Someria? ( I thought it was Somarian!)
    and....What the heck is "overstanding"?
    It's ridiculous, BUT then again, what can a person expect from the people "supposedly" with an education, running this country into the ground!???
    Going back, researching "couch potatoes" and "illiterate morons" as positions now!

    An ad for mystics written by some toad with English as a second language? I'd bet a small number of mason jars full of something it ain't a gooberment site. Pretty sure it has nothing to do with volunteer service. Better clear that site's cookie before the spam flood starts. I just did.
