Obama's captive audience...school kids

Getting the 'service nation' ball rolling.....

In a letter from the Secretary of Education last week...
www.ed.gov/admins/lead/academic/bts.html , the Obama Administration announced its plan to address all the schoolchildren of the US on September 8, 2009. The address will be broadcast to classrooms all across the country from the White House website, www.whitehouse.gov, at 1PM Central Time. The letter mentions that the address will be on the subject of the importance of education for society. This is the first time a president has made such a speech to schools. {more}



There's a lesson plan that teachers are encouraged to follow. Part of that plan stands out to me as not exactly what JFK had in mind when he asked "what you can do for your country."
Write letters to themselves about what they can do to help the president.
Help him do what?

Create a nation of zombie kids that will fall in line with every propagandist declaration coming from the White House? Ensure a steady stream of bodies to die in never ending wars? How about a youth corp of snitches for everything from declared environmental transgressions to mom and pop smoking a joint?

If this presidential address gets the 'positive' feedback anticipated, expect more of the same with an ever increasing slant towards the 'service' and 'sacrifice' of our children.

After all, if things go as planned, the youth are nothing more than the future servants and slaves of the ruling elite. Obama, as reader of the script, is trying to ensure that outcome.
