Obama Hides Slave Labor Wording On Website, Proposes The Draft

Yesterday we showed a quote from Barack Obama's new site which said:

Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by developing a plan to require 50 hours of community service in middle school and high school and 100 hours of community service in college every year.

Now that it became highlighted, in that same spot, the wording has been changed to:

Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by setting a goal that all middle school and high school students do 50 hours of community service a year and by developing a plan so that all college students who conduct 100 hours of community service receive a universal and fully refundable tax credit ensuring that the first $4,000 of their college education is completely free.

[Update] The original wording was caught as a screenshot by hillaryclinton forum, bless their hearts and I am adding it here for those claiming the word require was never there.

Changing the wording from "require" to "setting a goal" and offering payment, so to speak (refundable tax credit)for volunteer work.

H/T to LGF for catching one spot on the website the Obamabots forgot to change the wording. One the Agenda/service page, under the heading of "Integrate Service into Learning," it reads (for now):

Require 100 Hours of Service in College: Obama and Biden will establish a new American Opportunity Tax Credit that is worth $4,000 a year in exchange for 100 hours of public service a year.

Just in case he hides his slave labor wording there once they realize they missed a spot while scrubbing the true intent of his plan, I took a screenshot:

This is not the first time Obama's sites have been scrubbed when people have taken a good look at some of his plans and it will not be the last, but as before, what they seem to forget is people do save the original quotes, do save screenshots and trying to hide his true intent doesn't work, hiding his goal of turning high school and college children into his own little army of slaves instead of encouraging them to focus on their education and that alone, is truly the "change" Barack Obama believes in.

50 or 100 hours a year is not a lot of time, but the principle of "requiring" kids to volunteer is an oxymoron.

Volunteer, via

1.a person who voluntarily offers himself or herself for a service or undertaking.
2.a person who performs a service willingly and without pay.

3.Military. a person who enters the service voluntarily rather than through conscription or draft, esp. for special or temporary service rather than as a member of the regular or permanent army.

Volunteers "offer" their services, they are not "required" to perform those services, because once it becomes a requirement, it is no long "voluntary".

Using the military as an example here, Obama's plan for these kids is no less than the Draft aka Conscription:

Conscription (also known as the draft, the call-up or national service) is a general term for involuntary labor demanded by an established authority.

Change you can believe in... a step backwards in time where Obama wishes to now reinstate his own little version of the "Draft".

[Update] More on contradictions here.
