Regarding volunteerism?

I was talking with some family the other day about the volunteerism. I am wondering if there is any talk of what type of jobs those will be? Picking up litter on the side of the road is something many cities have petty criminals do for community service. Government jobs should be paid for. If the govt. expects everyone to put forth free hours, where will all of those new jobs Obama was talking about be created?

  • Hmmmm....maybe all of those "jobs" Obama mentioned are the VOLUNTEER jobs he will be mandating!!! And who is to say picking up litter on the highway, parks, cities, etc., is not "appropriate" for volunteerism according to Obama's plan?! This is the kind of stuff that happens when you choose an inexperienced person to run your country who has an extensive socialist/communist agenda! Guess all we can do for now is...wait and see! ::sigh::
