"And They Thought We Were Exaggerating": An Incredible Update

"Those who control history control the future." George Orwell 1984


A note from Radarsite: This morning I received the following comment to our previous article about Obama's announcement on his official website.

Except for, you know, you totally misquote it. Here is the quote from the website:

Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by setting a goal that all middle school and high school students do 50 hours of community service a year and by developing a plan so that all college students who conduct 100 hours of community service receive a universal and fully refundable tax credit ensuring that the first $4,000 of their college education is completely free.

Notice the total lack of the word require



So I went back and checked Obama's website, and here it is.


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 setting a goal that all middle school and high school students do 50 hours of community service a year and by developing a plan so that all college students who conduct 100 hours of community service receive a universal and fully refundable tax credit ensuring that the first $4,000 of their college education is completely free. 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.


The following paragraph has just disappeared.

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.


It has now been replaced by this one.


Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by setting a goal that all middle school and high school students do 50 hours of community service a year and by developing a plan so that all college students who conduct 100 hours of community service receive a universal and fully refundable tax credit ensuring that the first $4,000 of their college education is completely free.

Take note my friends, because this is just a sample of what we are going to be dealing with in our turbulent future. The highlighted text that was the subject of our previous article is just gone. Gone. Gone without explanation or acknowledgement. Furthermore one of their minions writes in a comment telling us that it was never there in the first place, that I misquoted it. Is it really going to be this easy to manipulate the truth, to manipulate us? Evidently they think so.

We can not, we must not accept this totalitarian manipulation of the truth. We must fight back against each and every one of these outrageous attacks on our freedoms. We warned you and you ignored us, and now it is here. - rg

Another update: Read this new comment. Now they are accusing me of altering the original document. Take your pick readers. Is Radarsite lying? Or are the Obamaites lying? There is no middle ground here.

If you are going to alter what you copied, it's not a good idea to link to it. Per the source:

Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by setting a goal that all middle school and high school students do 50 hours of community service a year and by developing a plan so that all college students who conduct 100 hours of community service receive a universal and fully refundable tax credit ensuring that the first $4,000 of their college education is completely free.

Unjustified fear is one thing, altering meaning to feed fear erodes your credibility and left me wondering if you lack morals and ethics.



[Update-Susan Duclos] The original wording was caught as a screenshot by hillaryclinton forum, bless their hearts and I am adding it here for those claiming the word require was never there.

A note to my readers: Normally I would delete comments such as these below. Today however I want them to stay up. They are calling me -- and all of you who have written about this so far -- liars. Despite the facts of the screenshots. This is how far they are prepared to go. Are you prepared for the great fight ahead?

  1. Does it really matter? Many, if not most, high school students are required to do community service. I can't tell you how many community service forms I sign throughout the year. In essence, the students will receive a reward/scholarship for something that is already required for many of them. Doesn't sound too darn scandalous to me.

  2. Yes, I think it matters because this is America. We depend on our generous spirit and benevolent wallets and our moral compass to "do unto others." I do not need or want President Obama requiring anything of my moral compass.

    Thinking that it doesn't matter is exactly how we begin losing freedom. Micah, it's wonderful that you are an active volunteer. As you move out of school, you will have the opportunity to choose to continue volunteering, without being required to do so.
