Convenient Amnesia

"I have spoken of a thousand points of light, of all the community organizations that are spread like stars throughout the Nation, doing good. I will go to the people and the programs that are the brighter points of light, and I will ask every member of my government to become involved. The old ideas are new again because they are not old, they are timeless: duty, sacrifice, commitment, and a patriotism that finds its expression in taking part and pitching in."

—George H. W. Bush, 1988

It seems like the right wing news "journalists" like Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Michele Malkin, Charles Krauthamer, and Bill O'Reilly are having a heyday with President Obama's community organizing and efforts to promote more volunteerism in our country. They are promoting it as "government enforced" or subsidized programs akin to socialism, of course. Another way to gain government control of the masses and have them do the government's bidding of undermining our Constitution.

They seem to have forgotten that the American way, the right way, the only way to help our country is to help each other. They also seem to have forgotten The Thousand Points of Light program of George Bush, their Republican president. Hmmm........
