Obama Ujana – The Plan For Compulsive Service Under The Guise Of Government Run “Volunteer Service” – [Reader Post]

By 26 Comments 1,305 views

Back on November 7, 2008, when President Obama was still President Elect Obama, the official website of his presidential transition was www.change.gov. When the site was first posted, on the page labeled “America Serves,” Obama outlined his plan that would require that students perform a certain number of hours of community service.

Within hours of the website going live, the blogosphere was abuzz with reports of the suprising content of the page, such as aye chihuaha’s post on Flopping Aces (which is the source of the above screenshot). The official transition website stated:

“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.” (emphasis added)

As the outrage rippled through the web, Obama’s transition team got wary of the impending backlash and within hours amended the site.

americaserves - March 17, 2009

The new language in question, still available on the site, now reads:

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. (emphasis added)

Now, this might seem innocuous, until you read House Bill 1388, introduced on March 9, 2009, that “reauthorize(s) and reform(s) the national service laws” and creates a congressional committee that will analyze “whether a workable, fair, and reasonable mandatory service requirement for all able young people could be developed.”

HR 1388 IH
1st Session
H. R. 1388
To reauthorize and reform the national service laws.

March 9, 2009

Mrs. MCCARTHY of New York (for herself, Mr. GEORGE MILLER of California, Mr. SESTAK, Mr. HARE, Mr. ANDREWS, Mr. TONKO, Mr. POLIS of Colorado, Ms. HIRONO, Mr. GRIJALVA, Mr. SABLAN, Mr. KILDEE, Mr. HINOJOSA, and Mr. COURTNEY) introduced the following bill; which was referred to the Committee on Education and Labor

To reauthorize and reform the national service laws.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,



(b) Specific Topics- In carrying out its general purpose under subsection (a), the Commission shall address and analyze the following specific topics:

(6) Whether a workable, fair, and reasonable mandatory service requirement for all able young people could be developed, and how such a requirement could be implemented in a manner that would strengthen the social fabric of the Nation and overcome civic challenges by bringing together people from diverse economic, ethnic, and educational backgrounds. (emphasis added)(truncated)

It is clear now, that the Obama Administration, together with the Democrat controlled congress, intends to institute a sort of civil service “draft” that would force America’s youth into compulsive community service. It is also a clear violation of the United States Constitution, which reads:

Amendment 13 – Slavery Abolished. Ratified 12/6/1865.

1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

2. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation. (emphasis added)

There is no doubt anymore as to the direction President Obama wants to take our country. He has quite effectively taken Saul Alinsky’s rules for radicals and applied them to running (ruining?) our country. His administration has broken all traditions and attacked the previous administration at every turn. In addition, his guard dogs have publicly and systematically attacked every commentator that has dared challenge his agenda. Together with the far left wing of the Democratic Party, he has used the current “economic crisis” as a launching pad to take control of our country and justify an expansion of the federal government that is unmatched in history.

In the name of protecting our economy, he has spent our nation into a deficit that is twice as large as any in the history of our country and threatened the very tenets of the economic system that allowed our country to become the superpower that it is today. This plan to further radicalize our youth by forcing them into involuntary servitude is just another stake in the heart of our nations freedom, and it cannot be allowed!

The main stream media is completely ignoring the direction that the underlying current of Obama’s administration is taking our country in, while at the same time ballyhooing his every individual action, and then spending countless hours on the television, on the radio, and in the print lionizing, idolizing, and exalting President Obama in ways that are eerily reminiscent of the fervent, compulsory praise given to previous and existing leaders such as Mao, Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Chavez, Pol Pot, and Castro. It is ironic that in the past incarnations of this obviously socialist leaning economic direction, which our main stream press seemingly wants and supports, one of the first sacrifices of individual rights that are made in the name of that economic “good” is the freedom of speech. At the same time that so called journalists are heralding the destruction of free market principles, and personal economic freedom, they are also beating the death knell of their own beloved freedom of the press.

Very soon, sooner than we might think, the people of this nation are going to have to choose between continuing down an almost irreversible path to Marxist socialism, and standing up for the country that we know and love, and turn the tide against the mutiny in our political system that threatens to hijack the American way of life we know. Obama’s view of socioeconomics is so startlingly similar to those of freedom’s greatest enemies that it makes me cringe, and he is using their lessons to mold our country into a new socialist mecca! He will systematically dismantle our current form of government and economic system and replace them with his own warped vision of a new United Socialist States of America.

And how will he enforce these new policies and agendas?

“We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded. -Barack Obama

It all starts with the youth. It begins by rallying them to an innocuous common cause and then using the bonds created in the pursuit of that cause to hold them together, and bind them into a malleable force. Then, when they have become a large, powerful force, they can be pointed in any direction and pushed. Then, with very little effort, the energy of that force can expound into a terrible tsunami that can destroy anything in its path!

This is scary beyond belief, and hearkens back to the Nazi Party’s “Hitler-Jugend.” As every youth in Nazi Germany was required to join “Hitler-Jugend” (Hitler Youth), soon, every youth in America will be required to join “Obama Ujana” (Obama Youth), where he will be able to rally, bind, mold and aim them into a social weapon that conservative America will be powerless to defend against.

Not only is this a thinly veiled attempt to indoctrinate our youth into a left-wing dominated mindset, it is a carefully conceived plan to galvanize Obama’s permanent campaign and cement him as an enduring iconic power in American life.

“I begin with the young. We older ones are used up. We are rotten to the marrow. We are cowardly and sentimental. We are bearing the burden of a humiliating past, and have in our blood the dull recollection of serfdom and servility. But my magnificent youngsters! Are there any finer ones in the world? Look at these young men and boys! What material! With them, I can make a new world. This is the heroic stage of youth. Out of it will come the creative man, the man-god.

“When an opponent declares, ‘I will not come over to your side,’ I say calmly, ‘Your child belongs to us already…What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing but this new community’.” – Adolf Hitler

Look very closely at your children. Picture them, standing at attention in their one piece powder blue uniform wearing a navy blue beret and red armband adorned with the now universally known symbol of the permanent Obama campaign, chanting in cadence:


Obama Ujana!

Obama Ujana!

Obama Ujana!

Obama Ujana!

Obama Ujana!

Obama Ujana!

If this idea sickens and scares you as much as it does me, start contacting your Representatives and Senators now! Call them, write them, and don’t stop there. Tell them that our children are not their social labor force, and they are not fodder to promote their radical social agendas. Contact President Obama and tell him that your children are YOUR children, and that you will not allow them to be indoctrinated into his civilian national security force and become his own “Obama-Jugend”.

    This is far scarier than any ‘bailout’ plan. Socialism/communism/dictatorship, couched in ‘alternative language’ seems to be the ‘true great plan’ Obama has for us. This needs to have a GREAT DEAL more attention brought to bear on it. A large, bright light needs to shine on this for every American to wake up and see what is going on. History repeats itself because we allow it to.

    Mandatory submission by the American public in order to populate Husseins brownshirt brigade. How charming. And the MSM will hail this effort as the first real attempt by a sitting president to do something meaningful for the nation and its people. And those who refuse service..you know, as the constitution permits for example? I suppose a little black mark will be inserted on their “permanent records”. Newly government owned banks will refuse them credit, newly government owned businesses will refuse them employment, newly government run healthcare facilities will refuse them treatment. Sound a little far fetched?? What if–50 years ago–someone had told you a Marxist would be elected president!

    I was just a child during WWII. I remember going to the movies and watching the newsreels though. They showed Hitler youth turning in their parents, neighbors and Jews. They were removed from their homes, tortured and some never heard from again.I wondered at the time how a child could turn against parents, neighbors and friends and country that way. I think the stealing of the minds of children has been occurring for a long time.It appears that BHO is working faster than people are realizing what he is doing.

    i will send my kids to mexico or canada or some other far away land to avoid this, it is stupid and one more reason obama is the worst president in the history of this country.

  5. 5


    Community service is already a graduation requirement for some high schools. Look at what babies you are.

    And yeah great idea, send your children to Mexico to be kidnapped, murdered and thrown in ditches by drug cartels to save them from having to pick up trash on the side of a highway or talk to old people for an hour on a weekend. Way to show those filthy American socialists!!! (how stupid you are)

    Obama is getting his youth brigade in order as we speak. Over 5 MILLION emails were sent out recently calling for people to unite and serve him by pledging to be loyal to him and his agenda, spreading that agenda all over (no questions asked, of course.)

    Together with his campaign-mode stops in red states to promote his budget (and his agenda, no doubt), Obama is using his MSM-induced messianic image and flowery rhetoric to pull together America and transform it into a legion of mindless activists, ready to be martyrs at his call.

    Could you imagine the uproar in the media if ANY Republican tried to do this? Barack Obama is the most dangerous person ever to have entered the American political scene. He’s much more to be feared than any fist-pumping, flag-burning activist we’ve ever seen, because he hides his agenda behind a lot of empty rhetoric that his followers perceive as a call to a higher purpose.

    Make no mistake about it; this is religious zealotry and idolatry of the highest order. Obama is calling his way the ONLY way to social enlightenment (my words, not his), and in doing so he is casting brother against brother, and father against son. His followers will have the full force and authority of the White House to do whatever He commands, and His opponents will have little power to stop His “Crusade.”

    It is still not clear (to me) whether Barack Obama is consciously attempting to make himself Dictator, and make the Democratic Party the one and only viable political party in the United States. However, what IS clear is that this is exactly what is happening, AND IT MUST BE STOPPED!! Where the HELL is the media? Do they not realize that they are aiding in the destruction of their (supposedly) treasured 1st Amendment Right to Free Speech, or are they voluntarily abdicating their rights under the spell of Obama and his Almighty Vision?

    It has been said that love is blind, but Obama’s followers (his current followers; not those who have awakened from their changey-hopey stupor) must be deaf, dumb, and blind not to be able to recognize nor criticize the man-child they worship. I am very scared for my country and for my children. I wonder how long it will be before American citizens start “defecting” en masse, unless Obama puts an end to international travel. At this point, nothing would surprise me.

    Chairman Mao would be so proud.

    @Jface: Are you really that stupid?

    First of all, if my school district required community service, I would be at the school board meetings working to overturn it, and if that didn’t work, I’d turn loose the lawyers. Just because someone is already doing it, it doesn’t make it right. Arguments like that are the reason Obama is the president without proving his eligibility, and Clinton is in a cabinet position despite emoluments. I guess if we just ignore the constitution, it will go away, right?

    Second, constitution aside, a problem with mandatory community service is that someone else, NOT YOU, gets to decide what service you are going to provide your community. That makes it political service, not community service. The citizens of the US provide the highest levels of charitable donation in the world, by their own choice, with the more conservative members of society being the most giving! The left would rather force the “giving” and be in absolute control of who receives it.

    Finally, do you really think this is about picking up trash for an hour on the weekends? These plans talk about uniforms, campuses, etc. The Obamatons don’t want your kids to make the country pretty. They want your kids to remake the country in their own ugly distorted image.

    unless Obama puts an end to international travel. At this point, nothing would surprise me.

    You are correct. I seem to remember Vice President Gore commenting that Americans are much too free to travel uncontrolled between the states. If that is the attitude of the Democrats, why would international travel be any different?

    Oddly enough, it’s often part and parcel of court sentencing…. ooops

    Hard Right

    Obama and the dems want there to be a second party, but one that is
    a permanent minority. This is why they gave millions more to ACORN,
    and are attempting to skew the census in their favor. BTW, ACORN will
    be involved in taking the census!
    “Liberals” are really fascists. They want power at any cost and will
    change the rules or ignore them completely to get it. Once they have it
    they use it to silence and punish the opposition.

    This has nothing to do with being “babies.” It has to do with violations of constitutional protections against involuntary servitude. Public schools are supposed to provide education for our children, and there are ways to educate children about the needs of the community without having to require them to perform service hours. This is especially true if the services that these children perform would otherwise have to be performed by people who would normally get paid for said services.

    In addition, I Ithink that as my chidren’s legal guardian I ought to have the right to say what community services my children should perform. I am the best judge of what experiences they should experience in order to be a contributing member of the community and help them appreciate the various services required to keep a community “healthy” (for lack of a better term.) I absolutely do NOT believe that school administrators or school boards (almost always with a political agenda, in my experiences) should determine what constitutes acceptable community service for my children. If this doesn’t seem like a problem to you, then it appears to me thaat you don’t mind forcing children into involuntary servitude.

    Do you realize that both Michelle and Barack Obama have recommended that at least one other population group (senior citizens) ought to be required to perform community service (picking up trash in parks) in order to justify the entitlements that they receive from the government? Where do you draw the line between what the Obamas are proposing and involuntary servitude that is unconstitutional? Or do you perhaps believe that the concept of involuntary servitude doesn’t deserve attention in our country’s constitution. At the risk of overusing a certain cliche, any small amount of government mandated service takes us to the “slippery slope” of violating constitutional protections, and this is something that most conservatives (as well as many moderates and liberals) take very, very seriously. To brush off concerns of constitutional rights violations as babyish shows that you might not appreciate just how important civil liberties are to many Americans.

    Something worth noting.

    The seemingly unstoppable (“seemingly” being the key word; let us hope otherwise) expansion of the federal government into every facet of American life goes hand in hand with the ability to “require” something in return. Rather than keeping funds in the hands of individuals, businesses or states, we send it to Washington and then ask for it back (requiring legislators to “earmark” funds since the feds have all the $$ these days) for everything from education to garbage disposal.

    That’s where the bait/switch takes place. The subtle shift.

    You see. That money doesn’t “belong” to the federal government at all since the federal government is not a protected entity in its own right (remember the old saying about the church being the people inside, not the building?). That money actually still “belongs” to the nation’s citizens (individuals and businesses), since it was sent up the pipeline by them in the first place. Our duly-elected “representatives” are supposed to then parcel it out to perform the legitimate functions of government.

    Here’s the slight of hand.

    The GOVERNMENT (apologies for the caps, just making the point that it seems to exist in and of, and for, itself in this case), in the person of the Actor in Chief (the guy playing the role of the President at the moment), now tells us that, as a “condition” of getting our money back (federal support for education, social security payments, medicare, who knows what else), the GOVERNMENT has every “right” to require recipients of these funds to do whatever the GOVERNMENT tells them to do. Wear a uniform. Pick up trash. Study Saul Alinsky’s handbook and take a test in order to cash their next SSA check. Veteran’s benefit check? Graduate from High School? Qualify for a college loan? Receive a standard deduction on their taxes (see where this can go)?

    I have a suggested alternative.

    I’ll keep the money and buy my own uniform.

    I can recall a uniform from the past that might work. Bell bottoms with some cool designs stitched in them, combat boots, tie-dyed t-shirt, long (neatly maintained) hair (a small concession to my parents), a Harley, and a U.S. Mandatory Obama Service Card that I will gather with my friends of like mind to BURN in the town square, in front of the U.S. Mandatory Obama Service Office.

    Here we go again, Back to the Future.

    I wonder if this is one of the reasons for the attacks on school vouchers? I wonder how soon the hard attacks on home schooling will come.

  14. 15



    @PB: I hadn’t made that connection PB, but it could very well be. The “progressive” mindset doesn’t allow for free thought or action, just free use of other peoples time and money.

    require that students perform a certain number of hours of community service

    What a waste of time. Stupid political posturing. Yeah – let’s make every kid doing community service so we can all make ourselves feel better about ourselves. This is as bad as those who want everyone to do national service etc. School should be for education and preparing them for getting a job. If people want to help out then let them VOLUNTEER. Much better than forcing kids to do stuff that no doubt most of them and their parents don’t want to do.

    Great and much appreicated article Wisdom! I was very concerned about this doing the election process but my rants back then fell onto deaf ears. This is VERY scary stuff, but then, we know Michelle told us that America will never be the same; that we will NEVER go back to the “old” America.

    Mata interesting that you brought up the courts. I only recently learned of the CS option after going in front of a California judge to dispute my $750 “right turn on red camera ticket.” Now that I think back, I do remember wondering (as I watched the others before me go in front of the judge), why only certain “types” were offered the “community service” option. I’m sure it has a connection for those without the means to pay, however I do remember being “unsetttled” by this “new option of which I wasn’t aware.”

    A little OT but for anyone in CA, who could use an escape from Obama politics in need of total serenity and mindblowing beauty, the Ca Channel Islands are in FULL bloom; just got back from hiking Anacapa. It’s amazing what a day without “news” can do for the soul!

  17. 21


    I have been following that particular case, but it is a nasty divorce case and I think I will stay away from it. Other than to say, I think the judge is treading in deep waters there.
    For home schooling I was thinking about California where they recently started to attack home schooling by trying to require the parent to be a certified teacher (I think this is the correct reference). Many of my neighbors home school and I have to say the kids are well educated. It’s kind of a shame, we pay some of the highest school taxes in the nation and the home schoolers can out perform the public schools anytime.

    If this trend keeps going I am afraid the home schooled kids will end up in the public schools. But, the good thing is; maybe they will learn valuable skills like this: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,509798,00.html

    My granddaughter just received a fancy letter from Congress to attend a 10 day youth leadership conference in DC. It costs $2400 but, she will get to meet “important Congressional leaders” watch Congress in session, etc. Rather expensive trip for a 17 year old high school junior, money that would be better saved for college imo.

    I don’t have any of the details yet, she read me the cover letter over the phone, it mentioned names and committees I didn’t recognize. When I get out there I’m going to go over the additional information with a fine tooth comb.

    Has anyone any knowledge of this event? Don’t know if it’s an annual thing or something new being cooked up by the present administration.

  19. 23



    @Missy: More than likely, the invitation didn’t come from Congress, it came from a group like LeadAmerica or the People to People program.

    Both of my sons have participated in LeadAmerica programs, which are primarily educational programs. One of them did a business program in New York, where he met with business leaders, CEO’s, stockebrokers, etc., and the other did a science program in San Diego where he toured modern research facilities, manufacturing plants, and met with people who actually work in scientific fields. Both were great programs where they spent the 7 or 10 days living in college dormitories, and were taught by people in the respective industries rather than the typical left wing whack job educators.

    Additionally, my oldest son participated in the People to People Student Ambassador program where he spent three weeks traveling to Italy, France, and England where he met with local and national leaders, and learned about the different cultures, histories, and governments. The Student Ambassador program was started by President Eisenhower after WWII as a long term attempt to develop personal ties between people from the world’s countries by introducing America’s youth to the people of those countries. Before they spent 3 weeks in Europe, they also spent 8 months or so preparing for the trip, and my son said it was his greatest life experience so far. In addition, he received a college/high school credit for his participation, which helps justify the costs.

    Both programs that my family has experience with were excellent, well planned, well supervised, and highly educational. Neither of my sons chose to participate in a Washington, DC program, because neither are very interested in politics at that level, but if it is a LeadAmerica program, I wouldn’t hesitate to send them if that is what they wanted. If she was invited to one program, she could have the opportunity to choose to participate in another that she is more interested in. And, once she has participated with one group, it usually opens the doors to more.

    Your granddaughter’s invitation could have come from another organization too, but I doubt that it is insidious. LeadAmerica has a “Congrssional Student Leadership Conference” that could be the one she was invited to. They have been doing summer education programs like this for a long time regardless of what party is in power.

    Here’s some links:



    Hope I helped!

  20. 24


    Thanks Wisdom. It sounds like it may be the Lead America organization the only difference being that my granddaughter said she will be attending in May while the site said the conference is in June but dates could change, maybe it has. I e-mailed the link to my daughter and asked her to confirm, now I’m excited again.

  21. 25


    Does the bill say anything about how they’ll enforce it? Or how they’ll punish if people refuse to do mandatory service?

    Or, is that what the FEMA coffins are for?
