why do people think that community organizers do not have jobs? I work 45 hours a week and I still volunteer?

to organize and help people in my and other communities. I've seen people state that they are not community organizers because they have jobs. Well NEWSFLASH!!! Being a community organizer does not mean you do not work, it just means you care about your community enough to help it grow. Got it?

Community organizing is very low on the totem pole for what I'd consider qualifying one to be president McPalin 08

They are ignorant and they don't believe in community or volunteering. They only care about their money and how they can make more. They think selfishness is the American way.

I think they were suggesting it doesn't qualify you to be President. Taxi drivers, truck drivers, Fire fighters, and others put in a lot of hours of hard work also. But that doesn't necessarily mean they are ready for the duties and responsibilities of President. Keep up the great work.

And I suppose you think your qualified to be POTUS too?! I think what you are doing is great. I commend you for you efforts and wish you much success. But you don't think you are ready to president do you? That's the point. McCain/Palin '08

It's great that you volenteer. You should be the 44th president. Obama thinks that qualifies him. BTW he was paid by Acorn.

I have lived in a town of 2,500 people for the last 22 years. I have never even seen a Welcome Wagon here. The most I have ever seen is a sign in some neighborhoods that we have "neighborhood watch" against crime. I don't know who watches. In fact, they may have removed the sign. Urban life is far different than... More
