Ace of Spades HQ: Has Obama’s call to action increased giving?


Hey, remember the "I Pledge" video and all of Obama's exhortations to community service? Has any of that borne fruit?

Remember that? Liberal sycophants on parade.

DEMI MOORE: I pledge to be a servant to our president…

(Not a cult.)

Yeesh. If they weren’t all such obvious douchebags you might be tempted to feel embarrassed for them.

@AceofSpadesHQ I mean, stuffing backpacks. What more community service could you want?

KaBOOM.  ‘WTF?': THAT’S the name of the charity the Obamas ‘served’ on 9/11?

@AceofSpadesHQ If by "community service" you mean "vote Democratic in general and for Obama specifically", then mission accomplished.

Either Obama's call to action produced fruit or, like many of his calls to action, produced nothing but Chris Matthews erections.

@AceofSpadesHQ Well, I wrote some shit on my hands with a Sharpie and Instagrammed it. Does that count?

@AceofSpadesHQ Oh, they "gave selflessly" of their time and money… to political campaigns

@Agglethegreat yeah that is my bet as well.

We should have the answer one way or the other. The fact that no one has bothered to report on this suggests, to me, that the answer is…

…rather embarrassing for Obama and for the left generally.

— iLoveScienceSexually (@AceofSpadesHQ) September 15, 2014

@AceofSpadesHQ Yeah, they don't get embarrassed…

I'm pretty sure that if the Age of Obama produced a vast new wave of giving and volunteering by the left, *the media would have told us so.*

@AceofSpadesHQ They wouldn't have shut up about it!

@AceofSpadesHQ I noticed a vast new wave of taking. Does that count?

— MPeper (@MPeper) September 15, 2014

@AceofSpadesHQ I think the Age of Obama did produce more volunteering; it’s just that it was for Obama’s various political campaigns.

@AceofSpadesHQ It is cynics like you on social media that is the real problem. #foreward

The press refuses to answer a lot of obvious questions, so much so that one can use The Dog That Didn't Bark principle to answer them.

@AceofSpadesHQ Heads up: Your "dog who doesn't bark" instinct is correct. Volunteerism is down 1.4% since 2009
