President Obama’s School Speech

Education or Indoctrination?

The Obama administration is setting a dangerous new precedent in American politics as the President specifically targets school-aged children in a Presidential address. Parents should know that they have an obligation to protect their kids from blatant political indoctrination.

Children are not the property of the government and are not required to be submissive to government service.

If President Obama wants to launch an initiative surrounding reading, writing, arithmetic, science or physical fitness then fine. However, if the President’s intention is to bring his political agenda into the conversation then he should expect public excoriation for it.

A President can have great influence over the minds of children. We must be vigilant in this area, especially with a President that is pushing such a radical socialist agenda.

The speech comes at a time when this administration has created the most politically charged climate in decades. As such, the President has an obligation to American parents to release a transcript of his speech ahead of time to allow parents to determine whether they wish for their children to listen to it.

If he doesn’t then it might be a good day to keep your kids home from school.

If a transcript is not made available then we must assume that the President is using this speech to politicize his agenda for Global Warming, Cap & Trade and Health Care Reform. Just your basic get’em while they are young ploy.

The President has no right to rob the children of their youth.

If Obama decides to push children into a political firestorm, then he has stooped to the lowest level of politics.

For 230 years, our elected officials have avoided targeting children in political matters. In fact, we have condemned other nations for resorting to such toxic measures. Do not be deceived, nothing good can come from any administration using children as political pawns.

  1. I agree with you, Obama’s team should not be targeting kids, or filling their heads with any sort of political venom.

    However, I would like to point out that Obama’s agenda is not Socialism, have you ever been to a Socialist country? If so, you would know for a fact that we are fine. Healthcare reform may be the wrong phrase for what’s actually going on, which is insurance company reform. In order for it to be considered Socialist medicine, the government would have to control the pharmaceutical companies, the insurance companies, and the doctors and hospitals.

    If we aren’t going to let the kids be influenced by strange politicians, we have the moral obligation to tell them the truth.

    • Hi sleepyeagle

      As it happens I have spent some time in several socialist countries and am very familiar with what is happening. The firsthand knowledge picked up from my experience is why I am doing what I can to warn about the disaster that awaits.

      You are right, Health Care reform is not the proper title for what is going on. A more accurate term is bait and switch.

      If health care or insurance reform is the objective Obama would seek to keep what already works – which is massive- and focus on the individual areas that need to be fixed or replaced. You don’t toss out the entire system unless there is another objective… which there is.

      The Obama administration is in the process of obtaining control of the private companies necessary to provide them with maximum power and control over the public. This takes time and can’t be done all at once, but you can bet they will eventually acquire what they need. That’s what a crisis is for, right?

      Much of the deception and transformation is happening in plain sight so the only reason someone would not believe is they don’t want to.

  2. Our entire healthcare system DOESN’T work, that’s the point. You are letting paranoia get in the way of reason. The price of insurance is going up faster than inflation, and more people are having to simply having to go without.

    The companies are fucking awful when it comes to actual care. How about all these people who pay their premiums monthly, and get dropped the moment they get sick? They’re making a killing from…killing.

    When asked under oath if they would stop dropping customers when they become seriously ill, the heads of most of these private companies said “nope”.

    So you tell me, is this system of corrupt money mongers and death profiteers worth saving?

    • Saying the entire health care system doesn’t work is not accurate. The medical side of it (which is the most important part) is on the most part first rate.

      I will agree that the insurance side of it could use some work for some of the reasons you state. I just see no reason to destroy the medical side in an attempt to fix the insurance part.

      The reality of it is health care is a red herring. The waters run deeper than Obama’s stated goal of health care for all… much deeper. Call it paranoid if you like, but I can’t remember a time when government could be trusted, can you?

      • I never trust anyone in an elected position of power, but I know more people who support this change than those who oppose it. The medical side of healthcare is just as bad, Bubba.

        Hospitals get more money for more surgeries, with no incentive to get it right the first time. This leads to a lot of sick shit, people being paid off to botch procedures, reimbursement fraud, and who knows what else?

        We need to take a good at healthcare from a distance, encompass everything relative. People should get discounts for leading healthier lives, etc.

        No, I don’t trust any government, but I don’t trust the insurance giants either, or all the other greedy bastards with nothing but money on their minds.

  3. You raise an interesting problem. If you consider the medical a disaster and the insurance equally bad you have me wondering how adding an additional 50+ million to the mix will make it any better?

    Aren’t you afraid of rationing, long waits, preferential service for the young over the old, snuffing out the elderly to save money, fewer doctors, higher taxes and even national bankruptcy if taxpayers become responsible for paying hospital bills?

    • Taxpayers are already responsible for paying hospital bills for people who don’t have insurance. I do consider this a problem, but with reform, the extra 50 million won’t be sucked into this scam.

      • The word reform is much like the words hope and change. To the president all are a smokescreen for increasing government power and control.

        I agree with you in that there are problems – there always are when government is involved – but I don’t see any proof that the president is interested in fixing problems, only taking advantage of them.

        Judging from his actions and who he surrounds himself, Obama clearly has a personal agenda. The issues of health care and school speeches are his means to an end.

  4. What an ego. I don’t see that it’s part of American education to get school kids to write letters to themselves about things they can do to help the President.

      It could be as simple as Obama making sure the next generation of children are being properly indoctrinated by the government schools.

  5. You can remove Obama from the radicals in Chicago, but you can’t remove the Chicago radicalism out of Obama.

    Like a child molester you can’t trust Hussein around the kiddies.

      No argument – the results of Obama’s politics can induce a lifetime of trauma.

  6. Hi LC,

    Guess the three R’s will soon be replaced by the three G’s – Government, Government, Government🙂

    Hi sleepyeagle,

    You should note that the cost of health care is rising at a rapid rate for many reasons, the most important being that the services being provided are improving at a rate which rivals computer development, but which can’t be out sourced to China, mostly. Thus, since the Government insists that the insurance we buy has to cover everything, the cost of said insurance has to rise rapidly. Truly, it would be nice to have a policy at a lower rate which doesn’t cover the potently drastic expenses of gene therapy or organ transplants, but Big Brother won’t allow that. Wow! Now there is some health care reform that I could get behind.
