So why shouldn't children want to help the President? The curriculum never said "How can you help the President further his Socialist agenda?" right?

So, since there are no politics in the speech, then I think most kids answers would be something along the lines of "I can help the president and my country by working hard and staying in school so that I can become a productive member of society." BUT since there are no wrong answers, the student could just as easily write "I can help the president by attending town hall meetings with my parents so that I can learn how one person's voice can reach a representative in Government, and by learning how to protest to make our views heard so that the President knows how the people feel."

Couldn't they?

  • It matters not. Obama could be giving a talk about how to make the best apple pie & conservatives will still see it as brain washing. In their eyes, every single move that man makes, including just breathing, is %100 wrong.

  • Get real already, the speech was revamped over the weekend. Along with shitcanning Jones, so please. You know asking children how they can help The President is just wrong. Afterall, what is it exactly he is asking the kids to help with? Does anyone know? Or is the agenda here to just get the kids to accept it and him and agree to go along with "it" whatever "it" is and then later bring up what he wants done in the schools? He already has most liberal educational institutions under his shoe and the teacher's unions, so why does he need the children to agree to "help him". Why aren't you asking what "it" is that he needs help with? No President in the history of the world ever petitioned children to help in a mysterious manner as O did. Pledging allegiance to the President, even you should have a problem with that type of invocating rhetoric. Hitler requested the children of Germany to help, that's been proven.

  • This same question is just as annoying as those posts "do you regret your vote?" Except this question is posted about 10 times a day instead of once a week.

    Wrong. If that's what you think,you didn't read the agenda in depth enough. Of course that's what he ultimately wants. Why do you think he got his Hollywierd buddies,who helped buy the election for him to go on tv, pledging to be his slaves, and asking the rest of us to bow down and worship him,also?

  • Children should want to better themselves FOR themselves. Not for the Federal Government.

    You would think attributing self sustainability is a good thing, afterall, when the children grow up to support themselves the Fed's can Keep all their tax dollars instead of spending it on more government programs for bottom dwellers.

  • The word "help" isnt exactly in a physical since, its means to start our children thinking... to acknowledge public awareness before we get into another crisis situation. One of "OUR" children may have the answer, after all they are the future. They have wonderful ideas, the youth and spirit to substantiate it . Think outside of the box ladies!
