9/11 - A Day To Pick Up Someone Else's Trash

Back in April, the Community Organizer in Chief, President Obama, signed legislation that established the 9/11 Day of Service. The Obama administration changed the meaning of 9/11. It will no longer be a day of remembrance, but rather "a day service" - a day of "community organizing".

It's going to be a day to do "service work" instead of remembering and memorializing those who were murdered in America in 2001. Obama wants you to save that day for donating clothing, planting community gardens, collecting food for food pantries and other "feel good" and/or "green" projects.

The Obama administration's plans were outlined in an Aug. 11 White House-sponsored teleconference call which was coordinated by Obama ally Lennox Yearwood, president of the Hip Hop Caucus, and Liv Havstad, the group's senior vice president of strategic partnerships and programs.

A coalition of organizations involved in this day of service conference call:
Color of Change and about 60 far-left, environmentalist, labor, and corporate shakedown groups participated in the call. Groups on the call included: ACORN, AFL-CIO, Apollo Alliance, Community Action Partnership, Deep South Center for Environmental Justice, 80 Million Strong for Young American Jobs, Friends of the Earth, Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies,, National Black Police Association, National Coalition on Black Civic Participation, National Council of Negro Women, National Wildlife Federation, RainbowPUSH Coalition, Urban League, and Young Democrats of America.
These are the organizations that will no doubt comprise Obama's new army of "civil servants" (aka: a national security force) - and which is going to be funded with more money than the military - with YOUR tax dollars no less. Some are already getting huge sums of money via government funding. (Like Americorps' $5.7 billion funding as a result of the national service bill signed by Obama earlier this year)

And NO - I am not averse to community service and good deeds - What I am averse to is the exploitation of 9/11 in order to advance a Socialist agenda in this country - one that utilizes far Left and Socialist groups and unions to usurp the solemnity of remembrance with some twisted sense of voluntary servitude for "the country".

If you want to pick up trash, fill a food bank's pantries, or donate clothing - do it because you want to do it - not because Obama "gives you a day" to do it.

In fact, if you really want to memorialize those who died on 9/11 - pledge to work to Restore the Constitution and our liberties which were taken from us as a result of 9/11 (The Patriot Act, Various Executive orders, etc.) . I am certain that those who perished would have hated to see tyranny flourish as a result of that tragic day, and would not have wanted to see the organization and legitimization of some sort of "national security or service force" in their name.
