There is nobody who is more in tune with the concept of service to one's community than I am. While I am not a government groupie by any standard, I advocate service and applaud the concept of giving back. Whether you are volunteering your time at the local library with one of the literacy projects, reading to people at a nursing home, or working with the Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts to help build character in the rising generation, you're doing the right thing.
If you are looking to serve, you might be drawn to the new US Government website devoted to community service, www.serve.gov. On its face, it looks like just the portal for you. The problem is that when you type "ACORN" into the search field entitled WHAT INTERESTS YOU, you are transported to allforgood.org where you can volunteer with ACORN.
ACORN has been shown to be a racketeer influenced and corrupt organization. It systematically encourages, enables and furthers crimes as reprehensible as child prostitution, alien smuggling, human trafficking (slavery), adult prostitution, loan fraud, tax fraud, voter fraud and a host of other criminal activities. This pattern of criminality has been shown to conclusively extend nationwide.
Serve.gov will also direct you to community outreach programs which promote the interests of electing one political party to office (let your imagination run wild). Yes, the Democratic Party. This is paid for by you, the taxpayer.
Serve.gov is one of many projects managed by the Corporation for National and Community Service (a federal agency overseeing various government service agencies including AmeriCorps - Dear Leader's storm troopers)
When I clicked what I was interested in, ACORN, into the local search field, I came up with SPECIAL EVENT VOLUNTEER where I could assist with ACORN Day at O'Neill Regional Park in Irvine, California. I'm not sure what it would really translate into (tax fraud, child prostitution, racketeering or whatever).
When I clicked AmeriCorps, the search came back that I could volunteer for AmeriCorps City Year in Los Angeles(term of service from September to June 2011) with a promise that I would change the world (a change I could believe in).
AmeriCorps paramilitaries (right) in uniform - a tattoo is encouraged to show your commitment to the cause.
I also found employment opportunities for HeadCount, a voter registration organization (funded by the US Government) that claims to be non-partisan, but it's part of Dear Leader's irregular army of volunteers and you know I'd be registering Democrats to vote him back into office in 2012...
I could also join the OXFAM Action Corps (I have no idea what that is). There are a number of groups that promise paramilitary service for the cause of supporting Dear Leader.
This is the sort of training I would be receiving. As a former US Special Forces officer, I find that I might take to an organization like this. Force multiplication, low intensity conflicts, and irregular warfare are not concepts that are alien to me.
