    Who was it that was bussing them around, the school or some other organization? There is a huge difference. If the school did it, I would consider it highly inappropriate. If it was not them, then it is hardly any of my concern.

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sCDEPSoA-Mw&feature=player_embedded"]YouTube - Parents Approved Of Obama Song Lyrics: Courier Post Editor[/ame]

    Here’s a Fox News video.

    It was February, a month after the first African American in this countries history was elected President much to the chagrin of many.

    Not only was this a celebration of Obama being the first African American President, it was one video, of an eight video skit taken in February, which also celebrated Abraham Lincolns birthday, as well as Valentines Day, Groundhog Day, ect, ect.

    According to this “Fox News video” the lyrics were sent home prior to the assembly, no parents objected to them.

    No parents have come forth objecting, even after the “Fox News” induced ****storm, So how were the lyrics forced on the children?

    While your looking at the Fox video notice they have the words the children are singing crawling across the screen.

    I would be interested which ones seem to be objectionable to anyone here.

    Would you object this part“ make this country strong’ again”?

    Perhaps this is the one you find objectionable. “equal work for equal pay”.

    If not those two, maybe it was this one that struck a nerve.
    “to make sure everyone gets a chance be they red, white ,or black”.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Wrong very is a report from a NJ New's Outlet saying that the parent weren't informed of the words and none of them have signed any consent form to allow there Children to be filmed.

    They are all objectionable because they imply that the president will "make this country strong again", forces kids to say such, and thus pushes a political opinion.

    The whole thing reads like a campaign ad. Not the kind of thing I'd want in a public school.

    Read through the thread and I think you'll find you're one of the very few who don't find this objectionable.

    First thanks for posting this info. I make my remarks based upon the assumption that this video is legitimate since we know that the source is from a biased "news" source.

    I am not a wild partisan so I will not condemn President Obama since there is absolutely NO indication that he fostered this video. Still this is highly inappropriate because the statements are value statements hense that make them political.

    To have children sing "]“ make this country strong’ again” says that the prior president made us weak. Even though that is a true statement is is a value statement hense political.

    ]“equal work for equal pay” even though that is a good thing to strive for it does not belong in a sond that children sing.


    I don't know what to make of the "red, white ,or black”. ditty. Yes it is about equality then if that is what is to be tought why not have the children be tought to treat everyone equal, white, red, black, stoopped, srtriped, or purple.

    Even if this was done with he "best" of intentions I just do not like it having children singing things that can be construed as political.

    Yet let's be honet here people there is no indication the President Obama had anything to do with these songs of Chairman Mao.

    That's pretyy much what I think about this and I do not come to that conclusion on a partisan basis. I am sure that here those who would not object if stuff like this happened during the Bush administration just as there are those who are not objectly soley becasue Obama is in office.

    I find it objectionable no matter which political party is in offce.

    The "heck of a job" Brownie was basically a Bushnyk stupidtism. If some partisan Republican bufoon made school childen sing that I would really be pissed instead of just laughing at a Shrub behaving like a Shrub.

    Meh. Another page taken from mein kampf.

    One of the first thing he took over was the hospitals as well.

    Its interesting how health care is so big right now.

    I dont care what the song says. Why arent they busy studying math or science?


    Start-Up Teaches Math to Americans, Indian-Style

    “If you don’t get mathematics to the highest level you possibly can in high school, your career options shrink dramatically in the 21st century,” Mr. Compton said. “Our society basically tells girls they’re not good at math. I was determined that was not going to happen to my daughters.”

    You should be able to worship your messiah freely in your own home. They have MUCH more important things to focus on in school.

    Interesting that you would note that. Biden said nearly the exact same thing standing in the flood waters of georgia this past week. Nice media blackout on this. The Katrina comparisons are inevitable.. You can stand outside and see the hypocrisy all the way from Georgia.
    Thank you
