We have always been at war with Eurasia

If you haven't already done so, read "1984" while you still can. You will better appreciate what Barry just did.

Two days ago Barry's website said all college and high school kids would be **required** to perform 100 hours of community service in order to graduate.

Then suddenly the word **required** went away. And now Barry will pay people $4000 instead through a tax cut. One more tax cut for people who pay not taxes.

The details are documented here.

I'm not sure which idea is worse, the indentured servitude or the $40 an hour bribe in exchange for the youth vote. Both ideas are disgusting and an awful preview of what is to come.

And I have to wonder what will qualify as community service. No doubt registering non-existent voters in Ohio and Florida will count. I'm positive however that if I want to volunteer with a conservative organization it won't. What this program will do is effectively use government funds to further liberal interest groups.

And he will still **encourage** seniors to perform free work. I wonder what kind of encouragement that will be?

Obama promised to eliminate income taxes for seniors making under $50,000 a year.
