Many will probably hail this as an advancement in human evolution where everyone becomes a flesh and blood robot, and Orwell will be proven right. Unfortunately, he meant it as a warning of what not to allow to happen!
    Greetings, Polgara.

    I can't hardly believe that Obama would be making or even thinking that pre-schoolers should be raised in state schools. That's such a non-starter for so many to be an impossible political position to hold.

    I have to believe that he's just misstating, and is wanting to help out mom's who want to work but can't for whatever reasons.

    If I'm wrong, and he really does think that the state should raise the young, then he's not going to be able to make that happen. It just simply won't.

    As you know, you are taking it out of context. But for others reading this thread, the choice he doesn't want them to make is having to choose between decent wages and taking a few years out of the workforce to raise their kids.

    And now I'm done responding to mac.

    I read it over, but couldn't find any part that says we don't want Americans to choose to stay home and raise their kids. I must have missed it.

    Perhaps you could point it out for us.

    No it's in context. It can only be assumed to be out of context if you assume he meant to say it differently.

    I did. It's directly quoted in the OP. He says other things in the speech, but he also said what's right there in the OP. "And that’s not a choice we want Americans to make."
