Apparently, volunteering and personally giving back to your community is a bad thing and bordering on communism.

I'm all for change, I always CHANGE THE CHANNEL when this paranoid loons fat face appears.

Celebrities are coming together to make it cool to volunteer. Disney gives you a free day at the park. This is all fine, but doesn't it seem a little bit convenient that all of this comes out now at the same time the Obama administration is calling for it? Obama controls the message through the media he holds in his pocket. Or in his little hand. And soon if you disobey, he'll just go [Beck slaps his hand]. Now the message will be embedded in television shows. Isn't this great? Aren't you proud of what we're doing? Oh, this certainly is change.

Thats not his point... his point is that the federal govt should not have the widespread means to force feed agenda to the citizens of the US.

However... currently (thank god) it still up to us whether we want to "feed" into it or not...

So the whitehouse talks about volunteering as a means to give something back to the community and the news is supposed to ignore it? And the rest of the entertainment industry is not supposed to say nothing about it because the whitehouse already said it?
Who said the whitehouse requested them to say anything at all? Could it be they just thought it was a great idea and picked up the ball on their own?

And how is this force feeding anything to anybody? You are not being forced to do or see anything.
And soon if you disobey, he'll just go [Beck slaps his hand].
And this part here were he alludes to the fact that if you do not volunteer for something that there will be repercussions, what was the point in that? Is there some evidence that I missed that you will be forced to do community service at some point by the government?

Spreading govt. propaganda via the flooding of a single mainstream means of communication through forced influence is bad thing no matter how you play it out. (Look at N. Korea.... they only know what the govt lets them know, dont believe me...do some research. They are not even aloud to step on their own beaches)

Brainwashing through repetition is bad. We are not arguing the point of community service. We are arguing the power that federal govt has to spread an agenda to its' citizens.

You cant honestly tell me that every TV producer/script writer on these shows that have been subjected their programming agenda, willing WANTED to incorporate this theme? You can bet your booty they were FORCED/COMPELLED by their network to do what they were requested to do, ultimately driven by the Fed Govt.

This is the area that is troubling. The funneling of forceful agenda (whether it is good or bad is SUBJECTIVE) through what should be a free enterprise.

Furthermore, it is YOUR opinion that promoting community service is good... however it is yours and yours alone. The beauty of freedom is that we have the CHOICE to decide whether we want to listen to you or not.

However, what happens if your agenda is on EVERY channel??? We no longer have a choice of what kind of programming we want to watch. No matter where we turn all we see is someone promoting community service.... do you see the problem yet?

The difference between you and me? I dont force people to believe in my agenda because I believe it is the persons choice to listen to me or not. You "think" promoting community service is good... so you "think" its ok to overwhelm daytime programming with it, effectively FORCING everyone to watch/listen to it.

I really find it amusing that OCB keeps tormenting himself by watching Beck.
Evidently its above his comprehension level as he runs here to whine about it .
Dude its a free country and you have the right to block the channel, so you don't accidentally watch it.
Kind like how people block your post.

Don't give a hoot about N. Korea. I don't live there and have no plans to visit.

You cannot honestly prove to me they were "FORCED/COMPELLED" to do anything of the sort.
Furthermore, it is YOUR opinion that promoting community service is good... however it is yours and yours alone.
Obviously there's quite a few folks that agree with this.
No matter where we turn all we see is someone promoting community service.... do you see the problem yet?
No I don't. Now if they were compelling you to take drugs or break the law then yes it would be a problem. But its not.
I dont force people to believe in my agenda because I believe it is the persons choice to listen to me or not. You "think" promoting community service is good... so you "think" its ok to overwhelm daytime programming with it, effectively FORCING everyone to watch/listen to it.
And again, who is forcing anyone to volunteer for or watch anything? An ad comes on I don't want to see? I switch channels or ignore it. I don't automatically feel compelled to buy that product or stay in that hotel or do ANYTHING the TV tells me to do.
I guess some people are weak and in need of constant guidance and reassurance. Hhmm. Maybe that explains Becks popularity. ..

I am about to leave for the day but I can prove they are compelled to participate:
Tune in to seven days and nights of television and watch how your favorite TV shows and personalities shine a light on the power of community service," EIF board members state on their Web site. The board is also making available a limited number of capacity building grants following the week.
http://www.associatedcontent.com/ar..._100.html?cat=2

You cant tell me that they are going through all of this trouble for free as a charity to the public. They are going to apply for these grants which give money to assist in advertising community service.

Capacity building grants defined:
Applicants focused on capacity building areas 1 through 4 above should be prepared to use grant funds to purchase their own capacity building leadership, activities, and resources and may use their own staff or purchase outside assistance from a consultant, facilitator, researcher, or other qualified resource
http://www.thenonprofitpartnership.org/grants
Don't give a hoot about N. Korea. I don't live there and have no plans to visit
You're right my comparison to N. Korea was over the top, however my comparison was valid.
No I don't. Now if they were compelling you to take drugs or break the law then yes it would be a problem. But its not.
Again subjective, some people like taking drugs and breaking the law.... Just because something is law does not make it right to the person questioning it. (Do you agree with all speed limits?, dont answer this it's a rhetorical question)
And again, who is forcing anyone to volunteer for or watch anything? An ad comes on I don't want to see? I switch channels or ignore it. I don't automatically feel compelled to buy that product or stay in that hotel or do ANYTHING the TV tells me to do.
I guess some people are weak and in need of constant guidance and reassurance. Hhmm. Maybe that explains Becks popularity.
We all know that there are sheeple around that will follow a tv show off a cliff... but you're right we dont HAVE to watch... but it sure as hell is annoying and oppressing. (oppressor - a person of authority who subjects others to undue pressures http://wordnetweb.princeton.edu/perl/webwn?s=oppressor)

Also if
An ad comes on I don't want to see?
someone will and does. It's called advertising. If it didnt work... it wouldn't exist. Do you dis-agree?

However I think people should get off their asses and stop watching tv and news all together... but thats my opinion.

Great, I would love to see how the whitehouse compelled these people to participate.While you are at it, how long have these grants and programs been in place? Seems to me both orgs have been around for years, doing the exact same thing for years.

Matter of fact THEY have been doing it since BEFORE Obama was in office so he is in fact echoing THEIR message, not the other way around.

Man, you Beckerheads really ARE a bunch of paranoids.
You're right my comparison to N. Korea was over the top, however my comparison was valid.
How so? We live in a society of laws and by accepting membership in that club we agree to abide by the laws. If you do not agree with the laws then you are free to attempt to change them by legal and constitutional means. Or you can simply ignore them, but be prepared for the consequences that the society will provide.

Boo Hoo. Public figures are fair game pal. This guy makes his living doing exactly that with a healthy dose of hate, racism and bald faced lies added for good measure.

While you are at it why not take exception with some of your conservative brethren on this forum for doing the exact same thing. You guys set the tone and then when it happens back to you, you whine and moan like a bunch of spoiled crybabies.

My suggestion to you is to rub some vics vapo rub under your eyes, work up a good stream of tears and then go whine and cry at somebody that gives a crap, because I surely don't.

Hows that for "kinder and gentler," feel better now? I do!!

Man, you Beckerheads really ARE a bunch of paranoids.
First of all dont call me any names. I didnt insult you.... Second I have never watched a talking head show in my life... including this beck guy. I hear the issues and do my own research. Sorry to burst your all encompassing bubble. Third I am not paranoid... did I ever say I was scared? I said it was a problem... problem does not mean fear... look up the definitions.
Great, I would love to see how the whitehouse compelled these people to participate.
Yes I am SURE this whole week of agenda pushing was not influenced whatsoever by the whitehouse.... You know because we have one of these every year (insert sarcasm here. Not to mention the first lady somehow knew about it before the rest of us did.

Also the mention of the grants... just because the grants existed before doesnt mean anything. Last year there could have only been 10K in grants whereas now there could be 2 million. In either case they are for some reason more attractive now...While I cant prove that govt money did not help increase funding for this cause, you cant disprove it. It just seem all too coincidental in my opinion.
How so? We live in a society of laws and by accepting membership in that club we agree to abide by the laws. If you do not agree with the laws then you are free to attempt to change them by legal and constitutional means
You missed my point about N. Korea. N. Korea controls what it lets it citizens know and what to believe. It pushes propaganda and plays it as fact. I was simply saying that GOVT. propaganda shouldnt be pushed through every TV station. Whether this current situation was DRIVEN from the GOVT is what we are debating... or do you agree that the GOVT should flood its' propaganda to the people?

Furthermore, my point about laws is to not be a conformist. Just because something is law does not mean it is necessarily right. (Slavery for example) Dont blindly follow all laws. But lets just leave this one at rest ok? It's a whole different discussion.

To sum it up, while you agree wasting a week on pushing community service is good thing. I disagree. I think the message this week should be save the US currency and spur job growth. We have many worse issues at hand in this country. Community service is on the bottom IMO.

They can multitask. There's more than one person working there.
Yes I am SURE this whole week of agenda pushing was not influenced whatsoever by the whitehouse.... You know because we have one of these every year (insert sarcasm here. Not to mention the first lady somehow knew about it before the rest of us did.
Both links you provided are to organizations that have been promoting volunteerism for years on television. They didn't do it because they were forced by the Obama admin and you have failed to prove that they did. I'm sure they were working WITH the admin because that's what they do, promote volunteerism.
Also the mention of the grants... just because the grants existed before doesnt mean anything.
Yes it does. You opined that they were forced to do it then you opined that they were paid to do it so which is it?
You missed my point about N. Korea. N. Korea controls what it lets it citizens know and what to believe. It pushes propaganda and plays it as fact.

So volunteering to help in your community and make it a better place is an agenda being pushed by saturating the public airwaves with propaganda that you equate with communist North Korea?

Does that not sound just a bit paranoid or what?

So is this mind control being beamed directly into your brain with government microwaves if you do not own a TV?

Its just funny to me that they have been actively for years and none of the Beckerheads had a problem with it and now all of a sudden its communism and NWO conspiracy crap, but you just can't quite explain why.

Not bitter or pissed, just tired of watching whiny crybabies with their double standards and nonsensical paranoid rantings.

Not an equality... it's a trait. It's also a distraction. Distracting people and giving them busy work while they pass bs health care bills and destroy the USD. Propaganda....

Stop talking about volunteering. I have already stated that I am not talking about that. It's the influence I have problem with. He with the money makes the rules. I have big problem when the GOVT has all the money. (not paranoid, but history proves this is a problem. If you ever studied Econ/History you would know this)
Yes it does. You opined that they were forced to do it then you opined that they were paid to do it so which is it?
Yes forced by their directors by indirect incentive driven by the govt. You cant disprove it, I cant prove it. Thus the debate....

Also what is your highest level of education/official qualifications? Just for my personal curiosity... You can PM it to me if you want.
So is this mind control being beamed directly into your brain with government microwaves if you do not own a TV?
I never used the word mind control.... YOU used those words...

And the GOVT does own the microwaves... its called the FCC...
So volunteering to help in your community and make it a better place is an agenda being pushed by saturating the public airwaves with propaganda that you equate with communist North Korea?
You are side stepping and twisting my argument. I am NOT talking about comm. service...My question is simple...
do you agree that the GOVT should flood its' propaganda to the people?
Yes or No?
Its just funny to me that they have been actively for years and none of the Beckerheads had a problem with it and now all of a sudden its communism and NWO conspiracy crap, but you just can't quite explain why.
If you dont get it.... this is coming up because big govt = communism/totalitariansim. They are trying to control every aspect of your life.(for god sakes they tried to ban Soda!) And whats sad is you are willing to let it happen just because you are a die-hard (insert pol. party here). You dont care what happens, all you care about is supporting the cause.... no matter what it is.
