Ohio Students Watch Important Message from Dear Leader

From The Dispatch:

School districts across central Ohio learned today that the list of things parents want their children protected from — drugs, predators, violence — now includes the president of the United States delivering a “stay in school” message.

Faced with phone calls from angry parents who don’t want their children to view the Tuesday address to the nation’s students by President Barack Obama, several districts have decided to just say no.

The U.S. Department of Education has billed the 15- to 20-minute speech as one that will talk to students “about persisting and succeeding in school.”

But critics, fueled by talk radio and conservative bloggers, have objected nationwide, fearing the address from a high school in Virginia will cross the line into politics.

Here is a preview of the video that students will watch:

    Previous presidents didn't make it so obvious that they sanctioned wholesale fleecing of the treasury. This one did. Identity politics is in play. Parents who are larcenous and or grifters will not mind this type of presidential influence at school. Parents not larcenous nor grifter-ous will resist.
