Alternate Realities

I live in a world where the President of the United States is governing like a moderate Democrat, continuing in the same direction of the military and economic policies of the administration before his. Same Secretary of Defense, same bailouts, same Chairman of the Fed.
Others live in a world where a Kenyan born Islamic/Fascist/Socialist/Racist usurper is creating secret concentration camps and indoctrinating the youth of America in our Godless public schools. The first sign of the impending fascist power grab is an attempt to get a bipartisan bill to provide universal health insurance!!! The horror!
And then there is this oath. Is it the battle cry of a stealth army of brownshirted Obama Youth being readied for the upcoming take-over? Only time will tell, although Glenn Beck has already made up his mind.

The AmeriCorps Pledge

I will get things done for America -
to make our people safer,
smarter, and healthier.

I will bring Americans together
to strengthen our communities.

Faced with apathy,
I will take action.

Faced with conflict,
I will seek common ground.

Faced with adversity,
I will persevere.

I will carry this commitment
with me this year and beyond.

I am an AmeriCorps member,
and I will get things done.
