In your community, have you seen an increase of volunteerism since Obama signed the GIVE Act? If not, what do you think people are waiting for?

For what it is worth~The 3 community charities I am actively involved in (Homeless Vets, Urban Cure, and Habitat for Humanity) were all lacking in volunteer numbers and contributions for March and April.

They're PAYING the volunteers? LOL ! This administration is full of idiots! First.. they want to make the volunteering manditory (in other words- forced labor, slavery, etc.) but then, once people caught on to the wording..because we aren't as stupid as they thought... they decided to add incentive by offering to pay for volunteering- which is the same thing as hiring an employee.

No! We already did all of that. We haven't changed one thing. He should have actually understood what he was doing. He just assumed that the American people are slovin and complacent. We don't all live in large cities like Chicago. Most of us actually live in wonderful small towns where the citizenry love American and their community.
