Youth unemployment was dealt with by the forming of the Voluntary Labor Service and the Voluntary Youth Service, a scheme similar to the ________ introduced by ___________ in the ___________. The _________ planted forests, repaired river banks and helped reclaim wasteland.

That is very telling. I responded to a post a few days ago that was discussing the possibility that Obama could be "the" anti-christ because of his star status among other things. At the very least he has a personality cult on the rise with him much like Hitler, Stalin, Mao, etc. I see his use of children on youtube, and that is frightening. Just like the Hitler Youth.

Bush's reign is over, and he didn't turn out to be Hitler. Only time will tell, about Obama. We'll have to wait and see what he does when he takes over the presidential office.

The point that seems to be missed here is that when one group of people is comfortable or even eager to give away another group of people rights - disaster isn't far away. It happened in Hitler's time, and we need to be careful that it doesn't happen again.

You guys can't say anything after the 8 years of vile hateful bilge that you've aimed towards Bush. Who will you hate now?
Bush has deserved every nasty comparison thrown at him.

He didn't have the dems investigate anyone, the media investigated JTP because McCain kept bringing him up in the debate. And when he was investigated by the state you have no proof Obama made them do it.

Kicking people off a plane is comparable to Hitler? I think you all have lost your minds, OMG I thought it would stop a little after the win but I guess not. I am half Jewish and the Hitler comments are so offensive. Last time I checked Obama has not suggested ethnic cleansing or wiping out a whole people so please just stop.

You're stupid, seriously, I rarely call people names on a forum but if you believe this little thing you attached you need to do some reading about Hitler.

Hmm, I remember hearing this exact same claim made about another president. Lets see, who was he? hmmmm Oh! I know, it was Bush.

So I assume you thought people were stupid for making those claims as well? Personally, I don't buy either claim, but I am interested to know your thoughts?

I can't see any likeness between Obama and Hitler. If I were to compare him with a past dictator of any noteriety I would probably lean toward Mao Tse Tung, or perhaps Nikita Krushchev. But Hitler LMAO....not hardly.
