OPINION: Hey, how about that wildly diabolical Obama speech?

JACKSON – Look out world, the indoctrination has begun.
President Barack Obama delivered a speech to the nation’s schoolchildren Tuesday. The speech was designed – as pointed out by many shrewd political operatives – to get our nation’s schoolchildren on the Obama express. It is a diabolical plan to get the schoolchildren on board with his plan to destroy America, or at least to move the nation’s capital from the District of Columbia to the south side of Chicago where he can see his White Sox, Bulls and Bears on a regular basis.
He probably put some type of hypnotic spell on those unsuspecting schoolchildren.
This plan – as many shrewd political operatives have pointed out – was hatched way back in 1961 when Obama was born in Kenya. First, his mother and grandparents, who were in on the plot, convinced Hawaii newspapers to print a birth notice that gave the impression Obama was born in our newest state.
Thinking ahead, they knew the little Obama would grow up one day to run for president, so to meet the constitutional requirements, he needed to be born in the United States. Sure, Hawaii was a brand-spanking new state at the time, but technically it was a state.
And the brand-spanking new state officials were more than willing to go along with the plan by issuing a certificate of live birth which, by the way, is what my children and wife also have. I venture most readers have a similar certificate of live birth.
I, on the other hand, am sure I have a plain, old birth certificate. True, I cannot put my hands on it – or a certificate of live birth – at this point in time, but I’m sure I have one – somewhere. Just to be safe, though, I plan to search the archives of my hometown Laurel Leader-Call for a birth notice. Don’t worry. Unlike the president, I really was born here.
Trust me.
But this Obama guy – how can he be trusted?
It was obvious he could not be trusted by looking at the original lesson plan recommended as part of the president’s speech to schoolchildren. One of the assignments in the lesson plan was for schoolchildren to write about what they could do to help the president.
In an older, more simplistic, more naive time, that assignment might have been an opportunity for the schoolchildren to write about their intent to study hard, not drop out of school so that they could become productive citizens. In an older time, that would have been viewed as an opportunity to help America and, by happenstance, help the president since that was the goal of the president – to make America better.
But not this Obama guy. That’s not his goal. We all know it.
How can a man be trusted who wants to corrupt the minds of our schoolchildren by speaking to them? Think about it. The president speaking to schoolchildren. What gall.
Never mind that former presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush also spoke to schoolchildren in a similar manner. That was – as stated earlier – a simpler time. Of course, Reagan did not talk partisan policy or try to indoctrinate our children. He spoke only about true American values – like reducing taxes.
And what did this Obama guy talk about? Studying hard, doing one’s best, working hard and washing your hands. In a nutshell, he talked about personal responsibility.
“No matter what you want to do with your life – I guarantee that you’ll need an education to do it” the president said. “You want to be a doctor or a teacher or a police officer? You want to be a nurse or an architect, a lawyer or a member of our military? You’re going to need a good education for every single one of those careers. You can’t drop out of school and just drop into a good job. You’ve got to work for it and train for it and learn for it.
“And this isn’t just important for your own life and your own future. What you make of your education will decide nothing less than the future of this country. What you’re learning in school today will determine whether we as a nation can meet our greatest challenges in the future.”
What trash.
If the kids listen to Obama and do as he instructed them, what will become of this country?
I shudder to think about it.

Look folks, he’s the president. It was crazy when people objected to Bush or Reagan talking to schoolchildren.
And it’s crazy now. The big difference is that with the 24-hour news cycle and the Internet, you are able to hear more bizarre stuff.
And unfortunately, in this new world, the bizarre – on the left and right – is often given as much or more weight than the sane, who by the way also can be found on the left and right.
That is what I really shudder to think about.
