this could be interesting.

It disturbs me the same way the little Obama song being taught to school children bothers me. Next thing we know, it will be mandatory to have large photos posted in all classrooms of the president. It bothers me greatly, but it doesn't surprise me.

Our Fuhrer, oops, I mean President, is certainly trying his best to indoctrinate, I mean teach, our young people that the government only has our best interests at heart.  Just leave everything up to Big Brother, we'll do your thinking for you.  Just be good little citizens and march along to our agenda.  :evil:

Saw on the news last night that the approval rate has dropped a great deal.  Could it be the many of the American people are starting to arouse from their stupor of apathy?  We could only hope... :soapbox:

 I'm thinking Mr. Obama has no business talking to my kid without my consent. My children will be sick that day.

Maybe the the students should be asked what do they want the President and elected officials to do for them their family and country instead of Obama and administration dictating what we need to do according to his speech. I think he is going down as the worst President so far and I would not want him or his administration dictating his agenda to our youth.
