I know everyone has an opinion on Barak Hussein Obama. Me included. Most of my readers know that I am unashamedly conservative. I don't require people to agree with everything I say....but I do hope I cause them to think.
Since the president will be speaking to the children of America next week, there has been much discussion about what he will say and how he will say it. Okay, I think the discussion and worksheets (pre and post speech) are a bit creepy, but that is my opinion. Whatever. Due to all this hoopla I came across a site on material that is being "suggested" for elementary school age children to read before the speech. It is supposed to give the children a history of who they will be listening to, I guess. These books almost make the president god like. It is scary. Really scary.
What other president of the United States has EVER been this deified? None, that I can recall. This president hasn't even been in office for a year, yet! Doesn't this sound odd to anyone else? It almost feels like propaganda. Start telling the children when they are young about how wonderful this president is....how he is going to save the world. When they are older they won't question it, because they will have been spoon fed this from the time they were five years old. Love him or hate him...it's your choice, but one has to admit that this is a bit unsettling.
