The President’s Speech

Posted: September 9, 2009 in Education

Something that chaps my hide:

Parents who pulled their children out of school yesterday so they wouldn’t hear the President’s speech.

If you don’t want your children exposed to such influences then why do you place them in the government run, socialistic, anti-Christian, indoctrination and brainwashing centers called public schools?

I teach at a Christian school.  My class of 7th & 8th graders watched the speech live.  Afterwards we had a discussion.  I was pleased that my students were able to hear the self contradictory notes throughout the message.  Welcome to politics.

    I’m about to sound like an old fogey…

    When I was a kid if the president wanted to talk to students, there wouldn’t have been a question. Our system of combative politics is out of hand.

    *sigh*

    I lift up my eyes to Capitol Hill –
    from where will my help come?
    My help comes form the Lord,
    who made heaven and earth.

    I remember listening to radio addresses by President Reagan and the first President Bush. No one wigged out.
