The following comes from Everyday Mommy
Obama is planning to address all public school students, grades K through 12, on Tuesday, September 8, 2009, according to the U.S. Department of Education. Can you say, “Big Brother”?
If this doesn’t give each and every parent pause, take a look at the Menu of Classroom Activities for teachers to follow before, during and after the speech by the Messiah. Creepy enough yet?

Keep your kids home from public school!
Send a clear message to Obama to keep politics out of the public school class room. And, while we’re on the subject of public schools, this would be an excellent time to examine your choices and consider homeschooling. Our kids are worth it.
Following is from an article in the Topeka Examiner. It captures my sentiments:
“The companion “Menu of Classroom Activities” released to pre-kindergarten through sixth graders by the Education Department in advance of what they are billing as “President Obama’s Address to Students Across America” does nothing to assuage my paranoia.
- Before the speech, students are instructed to read books about Obama. Teachers are asked to ask students “Why do you think he wants to speak to you?” referring to Obama.
- During the speech, students should think about the following “What is the President asking me to do?” and “What specific job is he asking me to do?” among other things.
- After the speech, the questions that students should ponder include “Are we able to do what President Obama asks up to do?”
I’m sorry, but I don’t want the President of the United States asking or telling the kids of the United States to do anything. This isn’t 1950s China.
And what — exactly and precisely and specifically what — is Obama going to be talking about during this address? The war? Obamacare? Voting issues?
Nobody knows, which is also scary. The White House needs to be completely transparent beforehand about what Obama intends to tell the kids of America. Because if it’s anything other than “obey your parents and your teachers,” Obama may well be out of line.
Parents should be aware and wary of mass indoctrination coming from any President and into the hearts and minds of impressionable little ones.”
For any of you who may be confused and wondering what on earth all the fuss is about, watch the video below. If this doesn’t trip your creep-o-meter you’d better check for a pulse.
