All partisan bickering aside, I have a genuine question for the Obama supporters.
Does it not seem a tad bit creepy that this man wishes to address our 5 years olds directly? Is that not even a little bizarre considering the current political turmoil and overall climate?
Im sure I will get raked over for pointing it out, but there once was another leader took special interest in addressing the direct indoctrination of his nations children, in order to promote a strong and educated young nation of doers and followers.
They eventually came to be known as the Hitler Youth.
Now before any of you Obama fan boys blow a hole in your shorts, Im not saying Obama IS Hitler....Im simply saying a lot of his actions and ideas are very Hitler like at their most basic point.
Yes...the fact that he wishes to address the nations children directly should be a red flag with parents, because it has already been done before and it ended poorly.
Maybe its just my opinion, but it makes me squeamish to think the POTUS is going to give this speech to a CAPTIVE audience of pre-k---6th graders.
I dont agree with him asking my kids about civic duty. My kids arent here to serve the goverment.

I'm sorry, "W" reading an age appropriate book to school children is so more different than Obama wanting to address them directly with a specially prepared speech.

My kids arent here to serve anyone. As long as they dont hurt anyone else they should be free to do nothing or anything, injest anything, smoke anything, eat anything, say anything, and do anythin they dam well please. the govt has no right to tell its agents (us) what to do.

"so more different" is a perfect reason to promote education in the USA.

I am not a republican and I am getting tired of being grouped into the this whole right-winged left-winged fight just because I think Obama is a creep. Stop assuming that every one who is against this is a republican.
