    Re: Elementary School Students Taught to Sing Praises of President Obama

    ... we don't actually have a legal process to punish anybody for this. The parents can petition to cancel (or at least withdraw their child from) any school event they find morally questionable, but we don't have any specific laws addressing mention of public figures in school songs, whether they are being praised or blamed.

    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?

    “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.
    These comparison to Hitler, Stalin, or even to Sata Claus are nothing more than hyper active partisan horse droppings! No one who can actually think for himself belives that garbage anyway!!

    Re: Elementary School Students Taught to Sing Praises of President Obama

    Now imagine the children singing Bush praises...

    ...and watch the Left go catatonic, comparisons to Hitler and Stalin would be child's play.

    Remember "el-Diablo" comparisons and the calls of "liar" from Democrats throughout the Bush years, they pretend Stalin and Hitler analogies upset them now...

    Please.

    Bottom line, this is one of my children.....they get a new teacher. I either withdraw them or watch some resignations take place.

    It goes without saying that the weak resort to Hitler or Satan comparisons, and that members of the left will do it much the same as those on the right, with partisans perhaps not supporting the rhetoric exactly, but will defend the negative sentiment.

    Look, nobody seemed to mind very much when this same thing was done for other former presidents. I find it very hypercritical that people are so up in arms about this now!

    Now, I agree somewhat w/F107HyperSabr's take that the lyrics do impart "value statements", and as such they do have somewhat of a political slant, but I find nothing "indoctrinary" about it. I do, however, think that anyone who does is espousing to nothing more than "fearmongering". Why invoke Hitler/Stalin-like undertones otherwise? It was just a song performed by children during Black History month for goodness sakes. I seriously doubt the kids remember it now some seven months later.

    lol it's a cult of personality anyway you slice it, we're not saying that it's Obama's fault, however, how can anyone actually deny that this teacher is a cultist and was trying to indoctrinate kindergardeners into her cult?

    When? Where? Who? Talking about long dead Presidents like Washington or Lincoln is not the same thing as hailing and deifying a sitting POTUS. Not even remotely the same. The former is celebrating the history of this country, the former is being in a cult of personality. Sorry but Obama is not my fuhror and I will not hail him and anyone who indoctrinates little children to hail him should be driven out of the public school system on a rail.

    I find it very hypercritical that people are so up in arms about this now!
    What do you mean by now? Do you have another example of elementary school kids being indoctrinated into a cult of personality by their teacher? I don't freaking think so. Proof or it didn't happen.

    Now, I agree somewhat w/F107HyperSabr's take that the lyrics do impart "value statements",
    Ya if your values are the deification of dear leader and the indoctrination of children into a cult of personality. Those aren't my values.
