I just got the following email from a SEB Reader:
Hey. Don’t know if you’ve heard about this, but the President is doing a speech to children on Sept 8th challenging them to become better students and encouraging them to stay in school in order to receive a better education. I, personally, think this is a positive thing, because for many years now, we have not had a president try to reach out to the kids about their education. The most we’ve had is Asshole-in-Chief Bush mindlessly repeating Nancy Reagan’s “Just Say No” campaign and that diversion technique on 9/11 with the school children.
Heres the link to the information about the broadcast: http://www.ed.gov/admins/lead/academic/bts.html
Also, heres a link to information about how the radical right-wing nutcases are trying to completely screw up something that could inspire children to become more than burger-tossers:
These people are bloody insane. A president, for once, is trying to extend a hand to the children and these walking ballsacks have the audacity to try to deny that? Amazing how such an act of nobility and honor can be twisted into some political mumbo-jumbo to scare the people.
I don’t get it. Bush flies to a little school, talks to them, reads to them, and he’s a messiah. Obama tries to inspire the children and he’s some sort of lunatic.
I’m tired of the Republican’s demonizing everything that Obama does. I want to take action. You seem to be a tried and true voice for us that have common sense, do you have any suggestions?
I replied that I am at a loss as to what to do about it. You can’t talk sense to these people because they are immune to reality. It would help if the news media did more than egg the idiots on, but that’s what gets them the ratings.
So I said I’d toss it up here and see if any of you guys have any ideas. I’m tapped out myself in part because I’m so fatigued of it all. Let’s hear what you’ve got to say on it.
