Go work for AmeriCorps? Hells, yeah!

The Barack 'n' roll president signed a bill today tripling the size of the AmeriCorps service program

I think it's a great move. Not everyone who wishes to serve their country wants to join the military, and this provides another viable option — one that, like the military, provides higher education incentives. 

It's also a boost to the economy, one creating jobs for everyone from high school graduates to seniors. If I were a recent college graduate who couldn't find a job in my field, I'd definitely look into AmeriCorps.

I also dig the message of volunteerism the bill sends — let's help our fellow man instead of shooting at him.


  1. Do we get to wear Obama uniforms?

  2. Go naked if you want. This is the land of the free yo.
