WASHINGTON- Former first daughter Chelsea Clinton urged people to participate in service projects, saying there´s a chain of service that links generations of Americans from all across the country. Clinton is the daughter of former President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. On Saturday she spoke at a summit on the National Mall for the National Day of Service. Clinton said she was inspired by the volunteer work of her grandmother, Dorothy Rodham, who began as a child volunteer teaching migrant workers English

These elite ivory-tower fools seem to be unaware that Americans are known for their volunteer service projects, which are ongoing and not dictated by our bogus leaders in Washington.

This hammering away at "service projects", done once a year, is tone-deaf and insulting. They are soooooo out of touch....

Service projects in their minds refer to Government sponsored with high paying management jobs.

I especially like her participation in ´Service ´ projects when she was in her 20´s.

Being retired I spend a lot of time volunteering. How can young people find time to volunteer when they are busy trying to find a job?

Conservatives, unlike their liberal brethren, do not need to be told about service and charity. Their charitable donations are much higher than those of liberals, and I´m sure their donations in time are as well. Put a sock in it, and the cat too, "Chelsea." BTW, is Chelsea an old family name or a slum outside of Boston...

These are the same people who have armed guards, but do not think the ´little people´ should have guns. We just aren´t as important. AND we need to be told what to do.

Politicians are not our ´leaders´ or our friends. They are seekers (or users) of power. Once in power, they grant themselves special privileges, and scam wealth.

The people she is referring to are the very people Hillary has always held in disdain.
She looked down on the people in Arkansas and treated them with contempt. Chels grew up around this and the loathing of the unwashed masses probably has rubbed off on her.

It really rankles when the rest of us who have done community service and who have helped other people our whole lives through our churches and other organizations, are lectured to by the twit daughter of an impeached POTUS who believes she invented the concept of helping other people.

As for "service projects", that is what the State and Federal government is for. If they don´t have enough of our money to do that, then the project shouldn´t get done. Maybe if they´d cut some entitlements, they´d have enough money for these asinine "service projects" they think they invented.

Ignorant elitist know-nothings...

When we were children, our "service projects" consisted of raking leaves and shoveling snow at the elderly neighbors´ homes, and picking up the trash at the public parks when we went there. No one had to badger us to do it -- our parents called it building character.

Chelsea dear, perhaps you don´t understand that millions of Americans volunteer to help others on a regular basis, not just once or twice a year for a photo op. And we give not just of our time, but also help in any way we can. Do you, Michelle, the Bidens, give at least one day a week, every week, to perhaps sorting clothing at a thrift store, working in a soup kitchen or food bank, help someone learn to read; try it for a year and maybe then you can come back and urge us to participate in service projects.

Frankly my dear, you people make me sick.

I´m sure there would be many, many, many volunteers ready to start working on purging voter registration lists of non-existent, non-resident, illegal alien and duplicates registrations.

Let us know when the project will start.

Best friend is a far left guy, and he used to volunteer at a soup kitchen for about an hour a month.
He had the job of dishing out food, and he said it made him feel really good. But then one day a homeless man came through, with his genitals exposed. And my friend was troubled by the rule that no client was to be criticized or corrected for any reason.

So my friend quit volunteering there.

What gives this pooch faced spawn of two of the most corrupt and evil beings ever to insinuate themselves into positions of power in the United States Government the right to say anything about how the citizens of this country live their lives. She has done nothing of note or value with her privileged life.

The Central Park Conservancy, the nonprofit organization that manages the city’s most famous greenspace, is coming out against a proposal backed by Mayor de Blasio to replace the horse-drawn carriages with replica old-time cars. Doug Blonsky, the conservancy’s president & CEO, told the Daily News that introducing the electric vehicles to the park would be a bad idea. “Forty million people visit Central Park each year, including runners, bicyclists, kids and dog owners,” Blonsky said Wednesday. “Adding vehicles to the mix will make the

Shortly after 1 a.m. Wednesday, a 19-year-old in a hoodie and baggy jeans was captured on a grainy black-and-white surveillance video urinating into a reservoir that slakes the thirst of Portland, Ore.’s 600,000 or so residents. (Cue the disgusted “Ewwwwwwwws!” right here.) But really, Portland Water Bureau officials, do you have to flush 38 million gallons of potable water for the sake of a cup or two of human urine? That’s how much the bladder comfortably holds, although the bladder in question obviously wasn’t comfortable. We get the fact that Beervana prides itself on its water supply. The water bureau

BISMARCK, N.D. — A federal judge on Wednesday overturned a North Dakota law that bans abortions when a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which can be as early as six weeks into pregnancy and before many women know they’re pregnant. U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland said the law is “invalid and unconstitutional” and that it “cannot withstand a constitutional challenge.” The state attorney general said he was looking at whether to appeal the decision by the Bismarck-based judge. North Dakota is among several conservative states that have passed new abortion restrictions in recent years, but abortion rights supporters called

After devoting 15 minutes to a Barack Obama interview in the last 24 hours, CBS piled on with another seven minutes devoted to a "scary powerful" top aide. Charlie Rose offered a puff piece on Alyssa Mastromonaco, Obama´s deputy chief of staff. The CBS This Morning co-anchor on Thursday offered no tough questions and instead repeatedly underlined just how important she is. Rose marveled, "You know what somebody called you? Scary powerful." The co-host narrated, "We recently spoke to her about her low profile, high power role. Every time I read a piece about you, it talks about power."

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
