    EAT OCTOPUSSY Commie. The "white schools" is how we divide and talk about an issue in America, it got your response, get use to it or go back to Cuba commie, they do get the research and grant money to provide adequate learning whether failing or not. The disadvantaged schools get closed and children are bused, or the government changes the staff and faculty sending in another method of teaching, constantly over and over again, even when the children are learning, but a "test" determines whose learning. Telling American children to have pride in their studies and don't settle for failing is very Castro of Obama, KIZZ AZZ, a government option is capitalism, dumbass. Get your facts straight, and the proper spelling is affluent not afluent, Cuban-American school teacher.

  • bejucal - 9 years ago

    The "white schools" usually don't get the welfare, as the matter of fact, the districts that are in disadvantage get more federal funds and more grants than the districts that are more afluent. Get your facts straight. And you don't need to use that type of language to defend your position about an issue.

  • bejucal - 9 years ago

    I was a teacher in Cuba and I am a teacher here now. What Obama is doing is exactly what Castro did: brainwash the children. Wake up America, he wants us to believe that capitalism is wrong. We need to unite and let him know that the end of his first and only term starts now.

  • Dehumanized by Devils - 9 years ago

    "NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND" is a SOCIALIST ACT OF STANDARDIZED TESTING THROUGHOUT THE NATION THAT DETERMINES WHICH SCHOOLS GET WELFARE, THE WHITE SCHOOLS USUALLY GET THE WELFARE, WHITES LOVED THE GOVERNMENT WHEN THEY "SOLEY" GAVE THEM A SENSE OF ENTITLEMENT, BUT WHEN THE WHOLE NATION BENEFITS FROM A GOVERNMENT PROGRAM ITS SOCIALISM and EVERYONE THAT COMMENTS NEGATIVELY ON PRESIDENT OBAMA JUST CAN'T ACCEPT THE FACT THAT A NON-WHITE HAS BECOME THEIR PRESIDENT AND CARES FOR ALL AMERICAN CITIZENS, SO AS WHITE CITIZENS, (CHILDREN OF IMMIGRANTS) THEY FEEL THE NEED TO HATE AND DESTROY ANYTHING NON-WHITE. FUCK YOUR HATE!!!!

    I’ve written to my congressional leaders and President Obama as to how I feel! Do people not remember history? Germany, 1932, Paul von Beneckendorff und Hindenburg (President of the Weimar Republic) gave Hitler emergency powers using their constitution due to fear of a government takeover. Remember the SA (the brown shirts), Hitler’s personal police goons? Ah, 1934, the night of the long knives. This is where he had the SS kill the SA because of Hitler’s fear of retaliation. Remember how children’s loyalty was developed with policy of indoctrination via education and the Hitler youth movement. Does anyone remember Obama talking of a civil military police force, before his election as President?
    Van Jones (self avowed communist) actions and philosophies closely align with that of the Black Panther’s tactics and philosophies. Our Senate is passing bills into law that no one reads (How can you read a 1300 page bill, let alone understand one?). Now they want to use reconciliation to force a bill into law (“ram it down our throats ” without the necessary votes!!) We need government reform, not healthcare reform!

    well said merrick, some people just want to hate. Bring on the Hate, we can take it, we have been taking it for years.

    what a typical liberal, victim mentality. You probably haven't had one single instance of direct hate ( you can't count other people you know or things you see on TV ) You call dissention hate. You are so confused, just because we disagree with a person's political views, does not mean we hate the person. Forgive me for using "we" I can't speak for everyone, I mean ME. I don't hate obama as a person, I hate his political views and believe 100% that he is leading this country into a state of radical socialist, marxist ideals.
    So in closing, go cry somewhere else you worthless liberal crybaby. Nobody cares about your feelings, and how you feel hated. You talk a big game on the computer but probably keep your idiotic ideas to yourself in public. You are a typical liberal punk. Enjoy these 4 years. It will take decades to recoup after obama does his damage. You have fallen for the anti-christ, be prepared to accept the mark of the beast.

  • Jennifer - 9 years ago

    My understanding is that the message will be to stay in school and do the very best you can. If that's a message you oppose, then I fear for you, your children, and the future of this nation. In addition, Obama is not the first president to address the nation's children...

  • Wendie - 9 years ago

    Yes, this is political propaganda. It is a way to get kids to trust him and maybe they will see things "his way." I am meeting with my kids teachers today and will opt out. Instead, I will have my kids answer the questions...

    Does it make sense to spend more money when you are in debt to get out of debt? If you were in debt how would you get out?

    And...

    Defined socialism.

    Also...

    What are the advantages of a good education?

    I think my lesson will better help them understand they need to be educated so they won't fall victim to radical views!

  • tinkgal182 - 9 years ago

    First thing this morning I was on the phone with my children's school district asking how they will be handling the "Presidential Address" as well as the "Menu of Activities." They informed me that they will have the teachers record the address, review it to make sure the information was relative to the curicullum, and that they would then have the teachers send home a written permission slip giving parents the choice to opt out. Guess what folks, it was a lie!!!!! My kids came home and told me that we have to send a note with them to school on Tuesday and if we opt out they would then be segregated to the library. Hmmm, I thought segregation and seperation because of our views was illegal, and our personal choice and freedom to choose was a given right as an American by our Constitution, guess I was wrong! I have since written a letter to the school, will be on the phone first thing again tomorrow morning, and will not be sending my children to school to listen to any political agenda, propaganda, or nonsense!!!!!! I took a stand when the school decided to televise the inauguration and make it Obama day by not sending them, and I also gave the school a piece of my mind, and I am not afraid to do it again. Parents need to take a stand now and stop this insane CREEP from ruining our country, our freedoms, our points of views, and our right to believe in whatever political ideology and religion we want PERIOD!!!!!! Sorry guys I am red hot mad, and I suggest that all parents call everyone they know, text, blog, email, do whatever to stop this madness!!!! We can't be the only ones with a voice and my husband and I, as well as others in the community and our families are going to picket the school in this attempt to brainwash and indoctrinate our young impressionable youth! Kudos to all that are taking a stand and letting their voices be heard!

  • Hawkeyebacker - 9 years ago

    Barrack the malignant tumor needs to stay away from my kids. He has no need to indoctrinate them. I will take care of teaching them morals, values, and the need to stay in school. This stinks of the "Young Pioneers" al a Communist Russia.

  • jbb - 9 years ago

  • Debrena - 9 years ago

    Yes it is pure propaganda i mean come on you have to be totally stupid not see it was fixed from the get go of getting a charismatic speaker in the the White House(Obama), one who can throw in innuendos & persuasive comments at ppl getting them to believe every word he udders. I for one will not allow my children or grandchildren to become brain washed.

    If this does not sufficiently raise your ire, you need to know that the President, Senators and Congressmen have their own special gold plated health care plan, which isguaranteedfor the remainder of their lives, and theyare notsubjecttothisnew lawif they pass it.

  • Dwight Gordon - 9 years ago

    If, when reading some text from the Department of Education's "Suggested Topics for Discussion", one removes the words "the President", and substitutes the words "Dear Leader", I would swear this was a Lesson Plan for the first day of school in North Korea.

    The people behind this "plan" shrug their shoulder and say, "Gee Whiz, we really don't see what all the FUSS is about". Yet, anyone with a sixth grade education can easilly see by changing a few simple words, the FOCUS changes entirely.

    If the Elementary students were asked to write a letter about what they would do to help THE COUNTRY, I would have no problem with that. In a similar vein, if the High School students were asked to discuss whether they AGREE or DISAGREE with what Obama had to say, that would be a neutral framework from which to proceed.

    There's enough bias in the classrooms already. To see it come now from not only the Department of Education but also from the Executive Branch as well is more frightening the longer one thinks about it.

  • Redgie - 9 years ago

    Yes, it is propaganda from the Obama administration. Not surprising coming from a communist and his czars. I firmly believe that we spend to much time doing polls and should be yelling at the top of our lungs to get Barry Adolf Hussein Obama's attention. I have written my reps and informed them NOT to pass the health care plans and told them straight out that if they vote for it to "pleae submit your resignation" If they are not going to do the will of thier constituants, we don't want them in Washington. WRITE your representitives, your congressman, senators as well as Der Furer Obama. Stop this administration before Obama has his private army in place, martial law is ordered and we see an end to the United States of America as we have known it in the past. WRITE, WRITE AND WRITE. We can no longer sit back and remain silent. We must be heard. God Bless my America, not the one Obama is trying to create. His loving pastor of 20 years has already asked God to damn our nation. Fight his communist takeover of our great nation. Be strong, anti-Obama strong. We are still the land of the free and the home of the brave, no matter what Obama's AG says, we are not cowards and we need to show them that we are not cowards and that our Constitution is as strong as it was when we defeated the communist before. Don't let this communist, non-US citizen and his band of marxist facist czars destroy our great nation. We still have a voice, let's use it. We still have rights, let's exacute those rights to the fullest extent of our great constitution. The governmewnt works for the people and we need to let them know who they work for, what we want and don't want. No more speaking softly. Let's yell it so loud we shake the fur off that white house poochie.

  • sickoftheexcuses - 9 years ago

    This is a disgrace. Didn't we learn anything from the Hitler regime? He was so kind in the beginning, then how many lives did it cost us? America needs to wake up and realize that we are one nation under God, not Obama. We need to keep this a land of opportumity, not a land of victims. What are we going to do to change the world for our kids to have a better place than we were left from the previous generation?

  • Bob Z 96101 - 9 years ago

    Underhanded, and dishonest attempt to indoctrinate.
    The obama admin has one objective - overthrow capitalism by creating a crisis that would justify imposing socialist/communist principles.

    Where is the honesty and transparency we were promised ?
    &nbsp Underhanded tactics typify this obama administration.
    Underhanded and dishonest, over and over and over again.

  • Miyamoto Musashi - 9 years ago

    The serious indoctrination of students has been going on since the mid-90s. The radical elements implementing Title Five education funds and directives found success in those programs, thus the current issue is simply a further expansion of that mindset. States and local school districts have gone along simply to get the funds; radical, union protected, Federal primaries implementing these outrageous programs depend on this greed to implement. When first initiated, the Dept. of Education claimed fairness of their brainwash scenarios by "offering" two choices of curriculum (e.g. mandatory "Conference and Conversation" meetings.) In actuality, both curricula were the same. Specific directives were included to isolate and marginalize any teacher objecting to the program's implementation. School employees other than teachers were used to implement in addition to teachers and administration staff. In no way oversimplifying, the programs use these forced meetings of students to guide the majority to psychologically pressure any student not understanding, or agreeing to the guided groups overview of any issue. Whether it be sexual deviation, views of politic, views of religion, et. al., individuals not fitting the guided majority (read guided lowest common denominator) view is embarrassed and pressured to conform.

    This is in addition to other mandated programs, including the daily TV broadcast to all primary and secondary schoolrooms programs subtly following specific agendas also guided by these Federal control agencies and activated agenda operatives. How in hell do you all think this radical Presidency and majority Congress was achieved, except by the implementation of these brainwash scenarios at very young ages? They've got you covered six ways to Hell... Lower level Schools, Libraries, Universities. The same type manipulation is performed at Community Colleges and that power is expanded under the current administration.

    The President using the power of his office to influence children in specific direction is simply an expression of the arrogance of very focused, agenda driven and finally politically activated sleepers within the Governments. These propaganda agencies throughout the Federal Government must be eliminated, while parents regain control away from teacher's unions, etc. at the State level. The cemented problems are only further self-validated for these social engineers by any involvement of the President.

  • Michael Carlucci - 9 years ago

    Early childhood growth and development educators suggest that approximately 90% of an individuals personality has been developed by the time they are six years old. The great Church Reformer, "Martin Luther", stated; "GIVE US YOUR CHILDREN UNTIL THEY ARE SIX YEARS OLD AND THEY WILL BE CATHOLICS FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIFE". Socialist Elect Comrade Obama, appears to be methodically pushing America towards Socialism and is attacking each age group with the "CHANGE" he is committed to......moving America towards rank Socialism in a dramatic manner.

  • NatAmerVet - 9 years ago

    MERRICK & GO OBAMA!: Are you one and the same? Same message, word for word.
    Is this proposal propaganda? YES. Should it be done? NO. Would someone like Sara Palin be allowed to do the same? NO. Keep politics out of the schools. Teach American History instead.

  • pm32 - 9 years ago

    The arrogance and audacity of this man and this administration is really starting to scare me, I have always thought his ideas were dangerous but now that I am seeing them come to fruition it is really troubling. When will enough American citizens wake up and put a stop to our steady march into marxist oblivion?

  • Daniel I Walker OSCS(SW) US Navy, Retired - 9 years ago

    The National Socialist Party of 1930-1945 Germany rises in America...

    Hitler Youth = Obama Youth

    This guy won't talk to the voting public about the real issues the country faces, but he wants to indoctrinate our youth into the Socialist structure his administration wants for our country.

    For 22 years I swore to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foriegn and domestic.

    Does this now include the present administration?

  • BADKarma - 9 years ago

    Obama Youth, here we come... So far, Opie is following "Mein Kampf" to the letter.

  • John - 9 years ago

    I will be talking to my children's school in about 4 hours.

    I am not necessarily against it, but I want the opportunity to view it and talk with my children first, and if I don't like what he has to say then my children will not be watching it. It will definitely not be a live video food for them. They will be missing at least 20 minutes of school that day.

    If, after watching it, I feel it is politically neutral I will let my children watch it with me, then we will discuss it as a family.

    Then they will write a letter to themselves about they can help stop the spread of socialist and fascist ideology in their classroom and school. I will let them turn that into their teachers.

    What can I say, I voted for Ross Perot. lol.

  • Idahogirl - 9 years ago

    I'm just curious (after reading quite a number of posts), besides quantity, was is the difference of a president sitting down in person with a group of elementary children and interacting with them, and a president speaking to a very large group? President Bush has been praised for his interaction with school children. Do you think he only read books? Don't you think he had discussions and encouraged them to think about how they could create a good future for themselves and make their country strong? And, don't students have to memorize the speeches and words of past presidents? It seems rather odd that suddenly it's a "hand-off" policy for this president.

  • Idahogirl - 9 years ago

    If President Obama said nothing, the far right would criticize him for not leading and not inspiring the nation. If he speaks out to school kids, asking them to work hard and believe in a future, and think about how they can help their nation, the far right call it brainwashing. There is nothing he can do that the far right will not criticize and accuse him of "hidden motives." It really is rather unoriginal.

  • Jessi - 9 years ago

    Heaven help us all. Several people I work with who do have school age children are not allowing them to be subjected to this socialist/marxist propaganda. The direction this county is going must be stopped. How soon before the push is made to repeal presidential term limits? Numerous attempts were made today for an advance copy of the speech. The White House press office refused to supply it. Interesting?? Well, yes, especially when the State of the Union address is released days before hand. What is so super duper secret squirrel that it must be handled like a Top Secret Classified ops plan? And this is the "first president to care enough about our children...."? Do you not recall what President Bush was doing on 09/11/2001? He was reading to elementary school children in Sarasota, FL. I pray our great nation can survive until 2012 and that we aren't so far gone that sanity can be restored.

  • dukelowell - 9 years ago

    This despot has got to go. He is positioning himself to become a dictator. Just yesterday congress was considering giving him the authority to take control of or turn off the internet in an "emergency", now he wants to spread propaganda to our children. One of the first steps all dictators throughout history have taken is to sieze control of the means of information. We all know the mainstream media is already in his corner. I am a teacher and I pray I am not ordered to show this broadcast to my schoolkids, I really need to keep my job to support my family.

  • SO SAD! - 9 years ago

    Omg....you people are sick in the head. Its so sad get over it he won!!!l Let him do his job, where was the tea partys. whene Bush was adding billions to are deficit where was the OUTRAGE??? Let my Presicdent do his job.

  • Astonished - 9 years ago

    Reading the comments and see people saying we just have to hold on until 2012 when we can vote him out, or worst case 2016 when term limits will rescue us. He and his PUSH friends have proven his campaign strategies include tamper with election results, and he has no regard for the law. There is no doubt in my mind that a move to eliminate Presidential term limits is coming down the pike. And he's got enough blind supporters in congress and the country that they'll let it happen. I'm scared that it's too late to stop this evil to the core antichrist.

  • Astonished - 9 years ago

    If someone set out to try to destroy the USA, they would try to destroy the economy, take over major private sectors, befriend terrorists, violate privacy, discourage personal financial success, encourage the lazy and brainwash the next generation. Obama is not only doing these things, he's doing them out in the open. As a country we are letting him, and lots of us are helping. If a movie was made about a man elected President whose intent was to destroy the US, it would get dismissed as unbelievable. Believe it folks. It's happening right before our eyes.

    The thing that astonishes me most is that only a minority of us are outraged. Until this year, I would have bet my bottom dollar Americans would never stand for this. Turns out we're a country of nitwits.

  • Michelle - 9 years ago

    I have contacted my son's school and expressed my concerns over this as have other people I know. When I spoke to the Principal he was not 100% sure what was going to be said nor had he thoroughly read the "planned lessons" for the teachers.

    I believe that personal political beliefs should be left out of the schools. I think I will forgo any opting out and just keep my son home that day as it is up to the teachers to fit this into their schedules. Apparently this is happening on Sept. 8 at 12:00pm Central time. I was told I didn't have to worry about it as my son would be at lunch but why take the chance.

    Do you think President Obama would of been ok if President Bush had tried coming into his kids' school - oh wait they're in a private school where this will not be aired -- correct?

  • Rick - 9 years ago

    Gus, if these comments upset you so, why are you on this website. FOX at least brings truth to what is happening in America, our nation and thank God we at least can count on one and only one, by the way news network that isn't afraid to inform the citizens what their elected officials are up to. Enough lies have been spread by this entire administration and I have had enough.

  • Gus - 9 years ago

    How ignorant and hateful can you be to suggest the President is trying to brainwash kids. We finally have a president that cares about the citizens of this country, poor, middle class, rich, kids, adults, everyone. He's trying to encourage kids, inspire kids, motivate them to do their best. Every action President Obama does will be scrutized, even this. Wow, how ignorant of of Fox News. It shouldn't even be a news agency anymore.

  • Christian - 9 years ago

    after my 3rd attempt at reading that last post the only conclusion i can reach is that it's some kind of movie summary. some Wally Walter character....high speed chase....ends in a marriage...lots of swears....

  • SUPER TAXPAYOR - 9 years ago

    Check it out Wally Walter ,there are alot of us out here that aren't scared of shit . Now that being said, how are you gonna act when all of these high speed screwing overs catch up to your sorry asses. That wasn't the last election ever YOU KNOW. I was tired of hearing liberal bellyaching ,now it's our turn,so you and merrick get married while you still can shut the hell up and leave our kids alone.

    This is another reason why my kids go to private school. I am tired of being told what to think and I don't want my kids to be indoctrinated with nonsense.

  • michael zwahr - 9 years ago

    Another thing the left just tries to shove down our throats.
    As controversial as this Nazi trick is , is seems like they would at least let us know a little more in advance.
    Is there going to come a day that adults are forced to watch indoctrination films also?
    It feels like they're trying to pick a fight ,maybe to take our minds off another hidden agenda.

  • blownaway - 9 years ago

    Talk about a bunch of paranoids in need of strong medication. It's absolutely stunning that you can make something as innocuous as this into an issue. You people are marginalizing yourselves into oblivion... can you honestly think of any reason why an independent like me would vote for a republican after witnessing the last 9 months of your insanity? You guys don't give a dam about the issues, you just want Obama to fail and if it takes us all down with him that's fine with you. There's something seriously wrong with you people. Marxist, communist, socialist, fascist... which is it? There not the same, you know (I guess you don't). You just pounce on anything that the 30 million dollar a year right wing pundits throw you, even if there's no red meat in it... it's just a warm bag of poop and you eat it up! I was a republican (moderate) for 30 years and I can't even recognize a shred of decency in the party anymore... the inmates have taken over the asylum. You NEED the independents, and your freakin' most of us out. I will NEVER be a democrat, but I don't think I'll ever be a republican again... you're just too fuggin weird. You're killing the republican party. Shame on you all.

    Fox "News" is nothing but pure propaganda. Real news doesn't tell you how to feel about a story, it is simply the facts. It is too bad most of you have been so brainwashed by these crackpots you couldn't think for yourselves if your life depended on it.

  • sing - 9 years ago

    You could insert any communist/fascist dictators name into this story and it reads like a page out of history! My specialty is Chinese history.....

    "What can I do to help (Chairman Mao)? Why does (Chairman Mao want to speak with us? How will he inspire us? How will he challenge us? What lines do you remember from his speech? "

    In China, the life of Chairman Mao was indoctrinated into students from the earliest age, they memorized his words, repeated them, and everything was done in the name of the Chairman! Once the youth were indoctrinated, they were used in the form of the Red Guards(a "youth corps", or "community organization") to facilitate Mao's revolution, which was extremely violent.

    Make sure you know what your children are being told in school, don't leave their education up to these goons.

    America IS awakening and gathering in great numbers and taking their protests across the country to D.C. Watching this man's treasonous arrogance spread over us day by day is like being in a nightmare !!! He can't really think we are going to allow him into Kindergarten classrooms ??? He is most certainly a madman and we should get the tar and feathers READY.

  • Catherine - 9 years ago

    Denise, charles is a moonie who only proves his point that we "suck" in relation? to the world. He is an apologist who is just starving for attention be it negative or otherwise. He only wants to try to " prove" to you how smart he is like the good , smarmy liberal that he is. You are a better person than me Denise because I wish to kick his pathetic butt. Peace to you Denise.

  • Catherine - 9 years ago

    I think its great considering obama is not as smart as a fifth grader. So maybe he truly needs help on policy making. look at how utterly idiotic he and his flunkies have been so far.

    What would the dems say if it were Bush doing the same? Or any Republican for that matter? I thought we had a better system and things couldn't change so drastically when the parties change but I guess that's only true if its a change from dems to repubs.

  • Brian - 9 years ago

    The only thing we should be teaching our kids is that our President is violating the supreme law of the land (The Constitution), thus he is a crimal and should be removed from office.

    The lesson here about Obama is that this is how a president should NOT be acting.

    AS-

    It is obvious from your spelling and grammatical errors that you still require more "education". Perhaps you could move to Cuba and finish your schooling.
    BTW you even spelled your name wrong, ASS has two esses. Don't forget to wear your ACORN shirt.

  • Fed-up-in-Nevada - 9 years ago

    It's sad to say but most American's are easily brain-washed & have the common sense of a mule. Anyone with half a brain could've seen this train wreck coming, but people sat back & cheered Obama's slogans for change, not to mention, "Wow, the 1st black President! That HAS to be good, right?" .... well, we got change all right & if we're not careful, Hitler will be considered a "puppy dog" compared to this dangerous fanatic & his half-cocked staff. God help us all !!!

  • Michael Charles Fasold - 9 years ago

    Do they still teach about WWII in Histiry??? or don't they even have History as a subject anymore? Don't give up your weapons and guns yet!!! I have the strangest feeling that we are going to need them!!

  • Charles - 9 years ago

    It is hate Denise stop pretending. but run and hid in your bomb shelter because the big bad Obama is coming to get ya....

  • denise - 9 years ago

    Your sarcasm reflects your lack of information. If you can not have an intelligent debate you should not be part of the forum.

    As i told you, i hate no one. you need to stop using the hate excuse it's getting old. Or is that all you have.

    Re-read my prior post and learn what the real issue is. He is sneaky, and being a bully with our children.

    I am leaving for now. I wish you peace.

  • Michael Charles Fasold - 9 years ago

    Our children DO NOT NEED OBAMA teaching them ANYTHING!!! WHY CAN'T THIS WORLD LEARN FROM THE HORRIBLE MISTAKES THAT THE POPULATION made during WWII ???? Are we going to have an "OBAMA YOUTH" as Hitler had his "Hitler Youth"??????? Please my fellow patriots....WAKE UP!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Michael Fasold - 9 years ago

  • Charles - 9 years ago

    Denise, I didn't know you were still there, by the way thanks for the liberal shot.. ha ha. If is Education. I am sorry, Denise, you didn't get your offical President Obama Notification, we knocked on our door and you weren't home so we left it on the porch, I guess the dog ate it. What you don't get is that we suck in relation to the world in educating our Children, All you are doing is pre judging his message to the children. to me you are so filled with hatred for him, you can't look past that. There is nothing the the president can do to please you. so it doesn't matter, what he say or do, you are going to be againstg it. And by the way. he has dressed the nation as a whole. What you didn't get that offical letter either. If you think it is proproganda after you hear it, then make that call, not before..

  • Jim Baker - 9 years ago

  • denise - 9 years ago

    Charles ~ why have you moved on to attacking someone else? You have yet to finish our debate on an intelligent level so you move onto someone else? Sounds like the typical liberal to me. Alot of yelling, no point made.

    It's not education. If his intentions were education then why were the PARENTS not notified but all schools were? I receive notifications all the time from the schools, for games , assemblies etc.......I heard nothing about this.

    If this wasn't propaganda why didn't he address the nation as a whole? When PARENTS can sit next to their child and discuss his antics, should they want to?

    It's all very suspicious and if you ask me, very B O.

  • Charles - 9 years ago

    Marxist, communist, socialist, facist, liberal, conservative, democrats, republican, leftwing, rightwing, far right, far left, black, white, These are the words we love to describe other and ourselves. Have of these words, no one know the meaning of them, but we sound like little children on the playground when we spit them out. Let be human beings for a moment. Why are there so much hate in the country. Let look at ourself for a second and try to fix us, then trying to tear others down... Just a thought

  • merrick - 9 years ago

    Go Obama!!!! It tickles me to hear so many parents saying their children will opt out of the speech. Do you think Obama will hypnotize your children into some kind of robotic allegiance? Wouldn't it be more instructive to have them watch the speech and then ask afterward what they thought of it? If what he said was that horrific to you, you could use the time to interact with your children, challenging his statements. It's a great way of learning. But no -- it is better to keep them from hearing it at all. You aren't doing this for your children. You are making a political statement through your children.

    You would think Bin Laden was being piped into the classroom from the reaction on this site. Do you pull your children away from the TV every time Obama comes on?

  • Charles - 9 years ago

    Wake up Brenda. ITS EDUCATION.... EDUCATION. let me say it again EDUCATION. This is why we as american are so far behind the rest of the world. Stop hating and lets get our children on the right track to success, because it sure isn't working the way its going now

  • Brittany - 9 years ago

    Why are we surprised? We elected the most liberal senator and we are getting what we asked for. It's disgusting. My kids won't be in school, that's for sure. Hmm...I think the zoo sounds like a much more productive activity and I'm sure they'll enjoy it more as well.

  • amymo - 9 years ago

    I have called my school district. They were surprised I knew about this event. I told them it's on the news and internet. I was told that it's not like the President is going to deny the holocaust. (I know! What was that comment about?) I also told them that I would be happy to read a transcript of the speech, however there is none. No one in the Public Education System knows what will be said in total.

    I suggested that they send home an 'opt out' letter home with the students to give to the parents. I was told it wasn't necessary. Teachers were encouraged to watch the speech if it fits into their class time.

    My children will be opting out from this speech and any other assignments and/or activities that pertain to the Presidents agenda. My children are in school to learn to read and write, not to become mini-lobbyists for this administrations propaganda.

  • RBarr - 9 years ago

    AMEN Denise

  • denise - 9 years ago

    You need to do your homework, and i don't say that disrespectfully. I hate no one. I was not giving praise to Mr. Bush, I was simply stating that 9/11 devastated all of us, and as our leader Mr. Bush wanted to protect us from the rise of terrorism. My point in my posting was that B O has no clue how to keep America, AMERICA. He has on numerous occasion not only put us down to other nations, but has made comments to push us as a nation in the direction of becoming more like the Liberal European Union. Have you not read about Acorn, Van Jones, The bail outs? I 'm sure you have. Please don't ever assume to know my thoughts while you yourself are looking for an argument.
    I feel as if I an in a forum where I can express my concerns, and you choose to keep me quiet. Hmmmmm sound familiar?

  • Ken Gerhan - 9 years ago

    Am I the only one who realizes that Obama is a marxist, and is attempting to change this wonderful country into a marxist state? Are we going to let this happen? It's time for Obama to go - who has the guts to start the impeachment process?

    well said merrick, some people just want to hate. Bring on the Hate, we can take it, we have been taking it for years.

  • Brenda - 9 years ago

    Why would President Obama listen to our children??? He isn't listening to their parents. We didn't want to borrow money from China. We didn't want the stimulus money given to the banks. We didn't want it being spent on huge bonuses for the already wealthy CEOs. We don't want the government taking over health care. We don't want the middle class working people to be burdened with outrageous taxation, but I have a feeling...it WILL happen. No, I don't want my children deceived as we were at the polls last November...

  • merrick - 9 years ago

    All of you miss the point! Obama is the President! He will be motivating the children to do better in school and in their lives. Everyone is for that. He will not be asking for their vote. It is right for our children to admire and respect the President and to want to follow him, especially such an honorable and accomplished person. You can't have a better role model than Obama. This is an important and good event for our country.

  • charles - 9 years ago

    First, no one will and no one can give away our country.. so stop the hate. Second my point is that you want to give praise to Mr Bush for wanting to keep us safe and under his watch, we became less safe... so how has he protected us again?

  • denise - 9 years ago

    Hello Charles ~

    i said he wanted to protect our country not give it away. 9/11 did happen on his watch. what's your point?

  • Charles - 9 years ago

    Hey Denise. You said Bush wanted to protect our country. correct me if I am wrong, but didn't 911 come on his watch........

  • Liberty or Death - 9 years ago

    to AS
    so you're an expert on Hilter? My masters in world history and bachelors in political science probably puts me a bit ahead of you in the knowledge of Hitler's move on control of an entire country.
    You believe all Americans are fat, lazy and stupid, because that's what you see on your TV.
    Remember this quote "Everywhere sucks, America just sucks less" - Ted Nugent
    Some people, including me, do not want a liberal gov't to be able to spew propaganda and disinformation to our children. It's one thing to show a political debate where both sides have equal opportunities to voice their views, but piping one side directly into a classroom, where children are expected to learn new things, is absolutely absurd.
    I oppose piping Obama into the classroom just as I would oppose piping Ron Paul or John Mccain into the classroom. School is not a place to press political opinion into impressionable minds.
    Have fun wishing you were an American. And apparantly you needed to have less political lessons and a few more spelling classes.

  • denise - 9 years ago

    is anyone one noticing that our liberal friends seem to be spouting the most anger. Truth being heard can do that to those in the dark.

    another thing i notice is that Mr. Bush keeps being brought up. I would like to make note that Mr. Bush wanted to protect our country. Obama wants to give it away. He wants to make us part of Europe.......hence headed for a one world government.

  • jackbull - 9 years ago

    We need to get this guy out of office now !! He's more dangerous then the people were fighting. Tell me how and when and I'm in for the long haul . PS We need to get the Czars out as well plus Nancy ,Harry ,Frank Joe and a bunch more of the stupid ones in the Senate and the House. Not only DEM'S . Lets take are goverment back ..

  • Charles Washington - 9 years ago

    You clowns are so stupid, its funny. You talk a good talk and act all big and bad, but deep down you all are a bunch of scared little girls.... President Obama are talking about the importants of Education for all Children, not just black childeren, but white, hispanic and asian childern to. You all are so full of so much hate, if he walked on a crack in the sidwalked, I bet you would hate that to. Grow Up. No one on this board knows a thing about what it was like in the days of Hitla, but yet, you like to envoke his name to justify your hate. Keep you bad a** kids home. Thats the reason we are ranked where we are in education in the world, because we can't see beyond our own disabilities and we handicap our children...............OBAMA 2012

  • Don Rnc - 9 years ago

    Actually Wally, I'm Jewish and this is just like Nazi Germany before the war. Obama is a dictator in the making. No one is whining. I own an international business and work in six languages. I'm not ignorant, nor fat. I don't want a President asking my kids to write 50 ways to help Obama. He is a tyrant. Mark these words. We will fight to stop him from destroying this nation.

  • Little Ricky Cheeeeny - 9 years ago

    Yes, Denise Pray, Pray very hard and click your red heels together like Dorothy, because you and the Nut Jobs like Michelle "Cruella" Bachman, think that Super Jesus will save you from the bad Blackman and all of the Liberals.
