Remember that time I tripped you and you fell and everybody laughed in school?

Internets: Hey, Gleemon --

Gleemonex: WHAT.

Internets: Jeez, touchy. Just wanted to know if you've --

Gleemonex: Yes. And they didn't let my comment through, OBVIOUSLY.

Internets: OK, chill! Jeezus. Back up. What gave you offense, o delicate flower?

Gleemonex: Editorial in the Hometowne Newspaper by some K-Mart Think Tank board member -- may I quote it?

Internets: Do. I presume your comments are in the brackets?

Gleemonex: You presume correctly. Here goes:

It may seem innocuous for President Obama to speak directly to students about the importance of education. If that were the whole story, this could be a milestone that parents need not fear. Unfortunately, Obama may have an ulterior motive.[OMG. Srsly.]

Obama is expected [by you idiots] to talk about controversial policy proposals that would change our country. Many of us who have well-intentioned policy disagreements with the president have reason for concern.

....

It is recommended that teachers discuss - among other things - "Why is it important that we listen to the president and other elected officials, like the mayor, senators, members of congress, or the governor? Why is what they say important?"

The lesson plan goes further [oh dear god no!], saying: "Students might think about: What specific job is he asking me to do? Is he asking anything of anyone else? Teachers? Principals? Parents? The American people?"

That's enough to send chills down my spine. Schoolchildren should not be indoctrinated in obedience to and service in support of the president of the United States. Our system is based on the rule of law, and a robust tradition of loyal opposition, not blind support for the president in power.[ain't THAT rich!]

Obama is expected to address the "challenges" facing him in Congress [so you're saying they're not challenges?] and will likely use that opportunity to promote global warming taxes and a Washington take-over of the country's health care system [riiiight, I'm pretty sure that's what he wants to tell the kids, right after he says the magic secret words that make them Commie homos]. Hearing only one side of the story, many young people could be swayed. [you don't say. Pot, meet kettle ...]


Internets: Wow. Ohhh ... kay.

Gleemonex: Exactly. So I responded:

[response redacted -- if you know where to find it, you can read it there, because they actually for once posted my response (after I wrote to the editor and business office to complain); sorry, Greater Internets, but I prefer minimal connection between Internet Me and Real Me]

Internets: I can see where they'd have a problem with that.

Gleemonex: Yeah. Clearly. GOD, this is wearing me out.

Internets: Buck up, camper. These vile swine are having their last, ugly, repugnant, vicious hurrah. You ever hear of somebody being "hoist on their own petard"?

Gleemonex: Yeah ...

Internets: Or being given enough rope?

Gleemonex: Uh huh.

Internets: Well, OK then.

You've probably seen this, but has the Cowburg newsrag?

Subliminal socialism: What Obama really told the school kids

* By DALE McFEATTERS, Scripps Howard News Service

...
Hello, everybody! I am here with students at Wakefield High School in Arlington, Virginia. And we've got students tuning in from all across America, from kindergarten through 12th grade.

(ital) I'm going to leave you with one thought today: Socialism. (endital)

And no matter what grade you're in, some of you are probably wishing it were still summer and you could've stayed in bed just a little bit longer this morning.

(ital) That's not a problem you're going to have next summer because you'll be attending compulsory FEMA-run reeducation camps. And, by the way, say goodbye to Labor Day. Next year we'll be celebrating May Day. Bring your red flags. (endital)

I know that feeling. When I was young, my family lived overseas. I lived in Indonesia for a few years.

(ital) Heck, I was born there. Suckers.(endital)

And my mother thought it was important for me to keep up with an American education. So she decided to teach me extra lessons herself, Monday through Friday. But because she had to go to work, the only time she could do it was at 4:30 in the morning.

(ital) You try reading Leon Trotsky and Friedrich Engels at 4:30 a.m. Great thinkers but they could go on longer than Joe Biden. But you'll find out for yourselves.(endital)

But I'm here today because I have something important to discuss with you. I want to talk to you about your education and what's expected of all of you in this new school year.

(ital) And what's expected is that you will read the complete works of Karl Marx, starting with the first hundred pages of "Das Kapital" tonight. There will be a quiz.(endital)

Where you are right now doesn't have to determine where you'll end up. No one's written your destiny for you, because here in America, you write your own destiny. You make your future.

(ital) Actually, by the time you graduate, you won't because the government will own everything. Bureaucrats will write your destiny for you. We're printing the forms even now. In socialism, you don't have to worry about your future. It's all taken care of in the five-year plans.) (endital)

That's why today I'm calling on each of you to set your own goals for education -- and do everything you can to meet them. Your goal can be something as simple as doing all your homework, paying attention in class, or spend some time each day reading a book. Maybe you'll decide to get involved in an extracurricular activity, or volunteer in your community.

(ital) Or what's more likely you'll be organizing workers, peasants and intellectuals into giant collectives to disrupt Republican town hall meetings. Whoever does it best gets to run an auto maker or a giant medical center. We'll own them all.(endital)

The truth is, being successful is hard.

(ital) Actually, it's not. With no experience, I was elected president of the United States on my first try.(endital)

And even when you're struggling, even when you're discouraged, and you feel like other people have given up on you, don't ever give up on yourself, because when you give up on yourself, you give up on your country.

(ital) And if you do, there's always the gulag.(endital)

So don't let us down. Don't let your family down or your country down. Most of all, don't let yourself down. Make us all proud.

(ital) And now I'd like you to join me in singing that great socialist anthem, "The International." Altogether:

"Arise ye workers from your slumbers

"Arise ye prisoners of want . . ."(endital)

Thank you!

(ital) Merci! (endital)

Dang! I didn't get to see the deleted post...I bet it was a good one.

But, srsly, what is so socialist about the President telling kids to stay in school? Nobody complained when Nancy Reagan got all "Just Say No" on us. And, that worked out REEAAAL well based upon the number of my friends who toked a few in high school! Here are some made up numbers to back up my point:

12% of children didn't see the speech because their parents blindly follow the FOXNEWSCORP gallery of No-Nothings.

43% of children weren't listening anyway, or in my state (Yay Kentucky!), weren't in school anyway because a)they were still on the bus (Yay bussing!) or b)their parents own meth labs and needed them for "the harvest"

39% of students were actually paying attention and will be the leaders that will someday make this country truly great

and the other 6% were trying to attract the attention of the opposite sex for some behind the gym "I'll show you mine..." during lunch.
