OK, I'm sure everyone's heard that on Tue 9/7 the President will address our children while they attend school. This event is to be televised in ALL public schools across the U.S. so that the President can push his agenda upon our youth. Some schools have issued "non-permission" slips for the parents to sign if they do not wish their kids involved...the schools in our area have not. I personally will allow my kids to skip that day if they so choose.

It has also come to my attention that tax forms for filing next april will include an area for you to report how many firearms you possess. Granted this is hearsay, but I have heard this from some very reliable sources. This will not only help to impose a "sin tax" on our guns, but will also pave the way for a national gun registry.

I'm just wondering how others feel about this.

Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all.

guess how i feel  grin

the only thing i would do differently is to not give the kids a choice if they are under the age of critical thinking.  i used to put that age at about 12, but have recently been spending time with college student......

would be interesting to find that on a tax form.  census maybe?  have not heard.

It was on the news today that Herr O'hitler had changed his speech to the schools after the uproar. Maybe he will cancel it before it happens.

As for the gun listing, I think I would list 60 tanks and 47 surface to air missiles, then mark it out and write "sold to Castro" under it..

I will not allow my children to watch it.
My children are to spend their time in school being taught academics.
I have told the schools that I will pick them up at the designated time.

This is what is posted by our mayor on our Town's website and the website on each school,( I wonder who she voted for)

President Obama to Address the Nation's Students
On Tuesday, September 8, 2009 at noon, President Obama will talk directly to students across the country on the importance of taking responsibility for their education, challenging them to set goals and to do everything they can to succeed.  The address, which will last about fifteen minutes, will be broadcast live from the White House and will be able to be viewed via live stream at http://www.whitehouse.gov/live/.
I am encouraging all principals and teachers in our district to participate in this event and be engaged with the President in welcoming our students back to school. While we have had some inquiry from parents about opting out of viewing the address, we strongly believe that it is our obligation to teach students to participate effectively in civic life and we consider the president’s address to be part of our regular instructional programming.  Although we will not be providing optional activities in lieu of viewing the presentation, parents are always free to dismiss their child prior to the address if they so choose.

Does he think his little speech will make all the kids behave and do there homework with his great personality or what.  No I don't think so.  He is no dummy but yet is a dummy. 

This is the cheapest way for him to get exposure into everyones household.  -  Mommy, Daddy, I got to see the president today at school.  Hes is so nice.  It is no joke that this can influence there parents choice in the next election.  It should be Illegal.  Politically influencing a minor that is.  But its not about politics its about improving education  I dint think so Tim!!  This could really have a profound effect on whether these students become republicans or democrats, don't you think?

Its all politics and propaganda.  I was not in Germany when Hitler started his propaganda campaign but I'm sure this is similar to the tactics he used while brainwashing the youth of the time there.

they did keith.  i don't have a problem with our political leaders talking to kids.  in fact, i think it probably help engage them in the process.  if, for instance, kennedy had given a talk about the space program, i would have been fine.  talking about the importance of education, staying in school, bush 2 going to read to a class...no problem.

what's getting the parents that i have talked to, is that they don't think this president can give a non-political talk. they don't want him stressing some kinds of yet to be defined,  mandatory, "national service".  they don't want him talking about green this, and global warming that.....

the more they see of the people who surround him, by his choice, the less they trust him to be around their kids.  this is especially true with some of the since changed wording in the work sheet.
 as one mom put it "asking the kids how they can help the president is like asking the butler to sit down an have tea"....and no, it was not a racial remark.  her point was that the president works for the people.  if you put it in the kids heads early that it's the other way around, she saw that as a problem.  why not ask the kids how they can help themselves?  their parents?  their church or community?
