    Thumbs down Oh noes! Obama is going to talk to schoolkids!

    I was at the doctor's office and the Tv in the adjacent waiting area was twatting away. Eventually some of the content penetrated my tired perimenopausal brain. The gist was 'Obama us going to be giving a speech to schoolchildren. He us going to ask them to complete an assignment in which the students write a letter to themselves describing how the can help Obama and the country.'

    This was followed by excited voices opining about how a president giving a speech to students is 'unprecedented.' And assigning them to write about how they were going to help Obama--the horror!

    This fuckery went on for several minutes and without looking up I knew that it was Fox News. I also realized that they were devoting a good 10 minutes with several of their finest minds to freaking out over the fact that Obama was going to talk to kids and then they were basically going to write essays about how to be better citizens. When I went out to my car and turned on the radio, NPR was discussing Holder's decision to investigate the use of torture by the Bush administration.

    U. S. presidents don't give speeches to children, they read them stories while planes fly into buildings.

    Yeah, god forbid he talks to them about how important it is to stay in school, care for the environment, and get involved in civics. America as we know it might come to an end.

    I think a public service announcement would be better. My sister is a teacher in middle school and she said many teachers have agreed not too show it. She said it places too much pressure on the kids and non supporters will be singled out if they dont want to participate. No matter who the Pres is

    That's kind of sad. (a) They must not think their kids are very smart. I think my kids are smart and can listen to divergent viewpoints and make up their own minds. They know bullshit when they hear it. (b) Their kids aren't going to get any smarter by keeping them out of school. Maybe they can stay home and listen to Sean Hannity on the TV all day. Yeah, that'll help.

    Better yet, why not just homeschool all kids so they never have to hear any opinions other than their parents, or risk learning more than their parents know and are able to teach them?

    Why wouldn't kids want to participate? Why would they not want to write a letter to their selves? I think the only things fucking this up are the adults involved.

    It's weird. I guess my age is showing, because I 'felt' Ike's presence and then JFK's at my elementary school. We learned about them, their families, and I remember reading Profiles in Courage, etc. etc. I would probably not have wanted Bush or Cheney at my kid's school talking about the Iraq war. But if they had come to talk about September 11th, for example, I would not have questioned the appropriateness of that--though I would also have told my kids my honest opinion of what they said. (In all honesty, I hate Cheney so much I might have tried to assassinate him, so it's probably a good thing he stayed in his bunker. I'd probably still have a go at him if I could.)
