"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

College Credit for Vision

As the parent of a few teens soon to be launched off to college...I am relieved at the seriousness of education by the White House. We used to joke about Basket weaving being a course for credit(no I am not picking on basket weaving)...

Now our youth can get credit for Vision
Organizing for America, the successor organization to Obama for America, is empowering students across the country to build on the movement that elected President Obama and help bring about his vision for change.

Now to all those who are suggesting for one moment that the Right is busing in folks to Town Hall meetings, I want you to think long and hard about an administration that is affording students credit for perpetuating the President's vision.

I wish I could make things up like this...I could be President.

No, you cannot be POTUS. You exhibit far too much common sense.

That's not different than, say, http://mccain.senate.gov/public/index.cfm?FuseAction=StudentsTeachers.Internships.

Anyway, it's just another internship opportunity. Colleges decide whether to give credit for internships, not the organization offering the internship.

Anonymous- clearly you do not read here often.

I am against this nonsense in all political arenas. Oh and one more thing...instead of the redirection, let's stay on topic. The president of the US is promoting vague concepts as college credits.

VAGUE...BY THE COMMUNITY ORGANIZER...ALL MAKES SENSE TO ME.
