You assume too much. I am not a democrat. In fact, I'm still a registered republican. I quit associating myself with the party after 9/11 and after I saw the massive propaganda campaign that was turning otherwise intelligent people in to brainwashed idiots.

I can agree with most of what you said, but the biggest difference between the parties is that the Democrats do no have the a propaganda system that can even compare to the republicans. We're not even in the same ballpark. The republicans have brainwashed millions more people than the democrats could ever hope for.

Actually, they do. It's ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, and almost every major newspaper in the country.

That Jackasses kids go to a private school.

He really is a massive turd.

every president has to have his kids in a secured and easily-guarded setting while attending school......apparently all the other presidents are massive turds too, because their kids have also went to private schools.

But how many of them said this about private schools.. None that I can recall. Nice attempt at cherry picking.

I have only read some of the pages, but that was totally enough.
Seriously!! WTF !

oooh private school is baaaaaaaaaad, walled off.. blah blah flipity blah.

Most private schools have scholarship programs, many of the kids never pay full tuition. Most private schools require (yes folks REQUIRE) community hours. Again REQUIRE!
Most private schools also REQUIRE parental involvement. Why? They simply do not have the big ISD budgets to pull from.

So before anyone else whines about elite this or that, put your political beliefs down for just a moment and ask yourselves, why, just why would OBAMA say this about any school.

The real question is, why would a president say this about education? And do any of you realize just how scary the thought of him doing so , actually is?

A large majority will agree with him just because, and it will be one more move towards a totalitarian state.

We have been slowly and incrementally moving towards a despotic nightmare for quite some time.

As 80% of private schools are "Christian / Catholic" based. I am betting on a new campaign of "Separation of Church (Christian that is) and Education regardless if it is "private" or not. Along with homeschooling, they will defiantly come gunning for that.

Yep, I've taken flack for admitting to sending my kid to private school, and of course, because it is known what my personal religious feelings are, I was also attacked for sending him to a religious private school. The truth is that the school he's going to is a religious one, but the truth is that my husband and I chose the school based not with religion as the primary deciding factor. It's true that it being a religious school didn't hurt it in the slightest, but the primary factors were what curriculum they used (which isn't a religious one, simply organized with religious instruction as a part of the whole at this school), whether or not we could afford it and whether or not they were any good at educating kids.

Had the school been secular and still covered our three bases, we would have sent our son there in all probability.

Heck, we are neither one Catholic, but we entertained parochial school because that would have been better than public education.

I SEE no one watched this panel discussion.

Did YOU watch it?

Because it's apparent to me that, from the incessant chopping and editing the WH did, that they could have made it sound like he was saying whatever they wanted him to sound like he was saying, regardless of whether he actually said it or not.

Which leads me to conclude that everything that is presented to us as "Obama's words" in this discussion is exactly what we are meant to hear. Nothing is out of context except maybe the natural progression of the context itself. It's actually quite difficult to watch.

If they went that far out of their way to ensure that everyone understood exactly what they were talking about, and then still screwed it up...

Yes, I did watch it. It wasn't edited, the audio was a bit choppy though. I sat through over an hour and a half.

Doubt that.

Obama is not sympathetic to the plight of the less fortunate. He is the same person who stood there and told older people that instead of getting a treatment through the healthcare system that might help them, that instead perhaps older people should just continue taking medications because they are less expensive...

It is more likely that Obama, among the people in his administration, and even Republican progressives, want all children to be taught the curriculum of the Common Core. To be subjected to what tptb want children to be indoctrinated on. They want for all American children to learn exactly and only what tptb want children to learn/be indoctrinated on, and what to think.

You know what????

Life isn't fair, I'm sick and tired of EVERYONE bitching and complaining that this group has this, and that group has that, you know what, QUIT MAKING EXCUSES AND MAKE YOUR OWN LIFE BETTER. Now we have the President blaming all sorts for the plight of others. You have the "First Lady" talking about how whitey made her life harder. GROW UP, everyone has their own problems, quit acting like children running to mommy and daddy whining that "it's not fair". We've ended up with a country full of adults throwing hissy fits, like a spoiled kid in the grocery store. What a joke we've become.

Communist Goals from 1963, this is why you are seeing what you are in this country. The Liberal Socialist Agenda is a Communist Agenda. The link above has all their goals.

Here is one to see where Obama is coming from:

41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

Obamas comments are laughable anymore.The guy makes up anything to offend the oppisite view.He is close to being a dictator with some of His bizarre comments.

That is foolishness at its highest. So you think the government double and triple dipping the tax ladle us cool if it coddles the douxhe bags that cant find the impetus to carve a small piece of their own pie?

Look I get there's a problem but making a homogeneous government entity rather than an astristocratic one doesnt fix the problem for the poor. So many obtuse thinkers out there.

The secretary of education, Arne Duncan recently mentioned the idea to have public boarding schools.

Education Secretary Backs Public Boarding Schools: 'Certain Kids We Should Have 24/7'
By Penny Starr | May 12, 2015 | 3:03 PM EDT
“One idea that I threw out … is the idea of public boarding schools,” Duncan said at the National Summit on Youth Violence Prevention in Crystal City, Va. “That’s a little bit of a different idea--a controversial idea--but the question is do we have some children where there’s not a mom, there’s not a dad, there’s not a grandma, there’s just nobody at home?”

“There’s just certain kids we should have 24/7 to really create a safe environment and give them a chance to be successful,” he said.

Notice in what context he is making this suggestion. The notion that because parents, grandparents, or other family members are working, and children can be alone that is sufficient to have them in public boarding schools...

How many families have both parents, or a single parent family working meanwhile their children are at home?... The notion that because many parents, grandparents and other guardians of children might have to work a long time is not the reason for the violence amongst some youth. This claim is patently false. For generations there have been many children who have spent a lot of time on their own at home, because their parents or other guardians have had to work, and those children never turned to violence...

The Obama administration is trying to make excuses to get more control over the education of children. To have the state take control of children.

I agree 100%. Unless the public educates itself on the nature and history of the progressive party, they will continue to not understand where this is coming from. It is one reason that when anyone mentions SOCIALISM, their party goes on the attack of a personal nature and tries to convince everyone that it isn't socialism when that is exactly what it is. They try to redefine the history and nature of a political and government ideology when they are pushing those very same policies that every American that is over 40 knows is Socialist/Communist ideology. What is STUNNINGLY obvious is further made obvious when Putin that was a major spook in Communist Russia states that the US is moving toward socialism and to not do it because it doesn't work!

I realize that some people are as bright as a bag of hammers, but this borders on insanity. That is why socialists progressives feel the need to defend statements like Obama and his ilk make so dramatically. They don't want everyone to realize what this is all about. Americans have fought in many wars over the Communist/Socialist expansion in the world. It is sad to see this movement rear its ugly head again in the US. One can look at the communist goals in the link I put in my previous post or the below post and see exactly what they planned and are doing.

They infiltrated the NEA (National Education Association) and education system all over America. Is it any wonder the young people feel so entitled like everything should be given to them freely, including housing, money, food, cars, etc.? That is because of the Socialist/Communist agenda that they have been teaching over the last 40 years. We have subversives operating at all levels of government, education, and media. Unless people wake up and educate their children as to the failures of socialism all across the globe and the totalitarian regimes they produce, True Free Americans will wake up in a country they think of as Red China or Communist Russia. That is exactly what we are moving toward. Did we need a domestic force as powerful as the military to police us as Obama has clearly stated he was going to develop along with militarization of the police? Only if you are going to try to impose a socialist/communist agenda on a free people. That is why statements slip out of the mouth of Obama like we hear so frequently and why progressive socialists defend him so much. Welcome to the USSA!

Just a few of the Communist (read socialist progressive) goals that should make people wake the heck up!

3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)

13. Do away with all loyalty oaths. This is why they are stepping on the flag of the US!

14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy making positions.

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a "religious crutch."

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man."

31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the "big picture." Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture--education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].

39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use ["]united force["] to solve economic, political or social problems.

44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction over nations and individuals alike.


Seems like they are progressing just like they planned. There was a Russian General that made a 40 year plan to do this to the US. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand where the US is headed with their progressive friends.

All these people should be forced to go live in Red China for 10 years and see how they like that!

You can change the name of the party to Democrats or Progressives, but it is a Socialist Communist Agenda that they push!

Well, it is about seizing and controlling the mass mind. That "education" begins early. Why they grab children so young and make them spend all day "learning" in "public school".

Control freaks.

This statement is just so completely wrong, I can't resist editing the quote to reflect the truth...

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We don’t dispute that the free market is the greatest producer of wealth in history -- it has lifted billions of people out of poverty.

That should read:

We won't dispute that the free market is the greatest producer of wealth in history - it has forced billions of people into poverty and transferred the fruits of their efforts into the hands of a relative few.

That is all, have a nice day.

I agree with Mr. Obama, going to private school does breed anti government ideology. I went to private school. I was educated quite well enough to see that the government is corrupt and inept. We are 28th in education. People in our country have become dumber and dumber, with no ability to critically think. If you can afford private schooling, do your child a favor...send them there, instead of the hands of the state who churns out drop outs and drones!
