I did NOT think we did such things to our kids in America.
After Obama's speech to America's schoolchildren this Wednesday, students in grades 7 to 12 will be asked, among other things, "How will he [President Obama] inspire us? "
What if the student writes;" He won't, because I know he is a liar and a deceiver."
Do you think the student will be chastised by the teacher and/or sent to the principal's office for some "re-education" in Obama-worship?
Do you think the teacher will hold that Obama-non-worshiper up to class ridicule?
Do you think the teacher might suggest the student has "problems" and needs to see the school psychologist?
Why in the he__ are public school students being asked, "How will he [President Obama] inspire us? "
I think this whole speech -- and the FOLLOW-UP class discussion and homework -- are designed to make kids idealize Obama, and I think the public schools have NO business politicizing the students.
What if that question were asked of students after a speech to them by Presidents Nixon or George W. Bush?
I can hear the howls now from the very same people who are pushing Obamagod on America's young people this week.
In China, schoolchildren were taught that Chairman Mao was "inspirational" -- I did NOT think we did such things to our kids in America.
