If you are the proud owner of school age children, you should drop everything you are doing RIGHT NOW and mark your calendar...September 8th is the day your children will be brainwashed into communism by none other than Barack Obama.
Apparently, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan sent a letter to all principals at public schools across the country telling them that Mr. Obama is going to give a speech to all school age children on September 8th, 2009. The speech will not be carried by the networks (well, it might now), but will be available on the White House website.
So, what will the subject of the speech be? Glad you asked. Here is the letter:
In a recent interview with student reporter, Damon Weaver, President Obama announced that on September 8 — the first day of school for many children across America — he will deliver a national address directly to students on the importance of education. The President will challenge students to work hard, set educational goals, and take responsibility for their learning. He will also call for a shared responsibility and commitment on the part of students, parents and educators to ensure that every child in every school receives the best education possible so they can compete in the global economy for good jobs and live rewarding and productive lives as American citizens.
Since taking office, the President has repeatedly focused on education, even as the country faces two wars, the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression and major challenges on issues like energy and health care. The President believes that education is a critical part of building a new foundation for the American economy. Educated people are more active civically and better informed on issues affecting their lives, their families and their futures.
This is the first time an American president has spoken directly to the nation's school children about persisting and succeeding in school. We encourage you to use this historic moment to help your students get focused and begin the school year strong. I encourage you, your teachers, and students to join me in watching the President deliver this address on Tuesday, September 8, 2009. It will be broadcast live on the White House website www.whitehouse.gov 12:00 noon eastern standard time.
In advance of this address, we would like to share the following resources: a menu of classroom activities for students in grades preK-6 and for students in grades 7-12. These are ideas developed by and for teachers to help engage students and stimulate discussion on the importance of education in their lives. We are also staging a student video contest on education. Details of the video contest will be available on our website www.ed.gov in the coming weeks.
On behalf of all Americans, I want to thank our educators who do society's most important work by preparing our children for work and for life. No other task is more critical to our economic future and our social progress. I look forward to working with you in the months and years ahead to continue improving the quality of public education we provide all of our children.
Seems innocent enough. The Obama school address is a little Rah! Rah! from our President to our children.
Florida GOP chairman Jim Greer appears to have a serious problem with the President of the United States addressing our children on the importance of their education.
Yes, Jim-Bob penned a letter of his own:
As the father of four children, I am absolutely appalled that taxpayer dollars are being used to spread President Obama's socialist ideology. The idea that school children across our nation will be forced to watch the President justify his plans for government-run health care, banks, and automobile companies, increasing taxes on those who create jobs, and racking up more debt than any other President, is not only infuriating, but goes against beliefs of the majority of Americans, while bypassing American parents through an invasive abuse of power.
While I support educating our children to respect both the office of the American President and the value of community service, I do not support using our children as tools to spread liberal propaganda. The address scheduled for September 8, 2009, does not allow for healthy debate on the President's agenda, but rather obligates the youngest children in our public school system to agree with our President's initiatives or be ostracized by their teachers and classmates.
Well, Jim-Bob, we here at Fileunderi are appalled too. We are, like you, members of the "opposition". We have very little common ground with Mr. Obama, his policies, and, quite frankly, the direction our government has taken over the last few decades.
As a matter of fact, you are, more than likely, to the LEFT of us on the political spectrum. Now, with that being said...
We are appalled at you. We are appalled that yet another GOP "leader" spoke out on something Obamaesque and came off as a backwoods, propaganda spouting, imbecile. We are appalled that NONE OF YOU can make a valid anti-Obama argument without regurgitating rumors, innuendo,conspiracy theories, and all manner of horse crap. While we do not subscribe to either major party line, we look to you as a leader in a well organized (maybe) opposition party to speak and write thoughtfully and intelligently. We look to you to make sense.
Apparently, that is too much to ask.
Now, as members of the opposition, we are deemed as uneducated,backwoods,propaganda spouting imbeciles...thanks in no small part to fine folks like Jim-Bob Greer.
So, all us them thar Filerunderi-ites have penned a letter of our own to Jim-Bob:
We, avid followers of the opposition, say this with all the disrespect we can muster...
Please, shut the hell up.
