What Are You Afraid Of

Pretty much all the honest truth telling in the world is done by children.
~Oliver Wendell

I heard on the news this morning that the President of the United States was planning to address, via satellite, all the students in school on Tuesday.

My first impression was, that's pretty cool. The most powerful man in the world was going to talk to the future of our world. Give the youth a pep talk on the importance of a good education.

Then, the wet blankets started hitting me in the face like, well, wet blankets (follow me people). What I didn't realize until the scared conservatives started talking was that Obama was just planning on brainwashing the youth of America..

The thinkers to right (why are they the right?), are so afraid that their children might hear something they agree with, they wont allow their children to watch the President's address. Well aren't we raising good self reliant citizens.

The conservatives think Obama is going to try to use this address to push his "socialistic" policies. Good job righties and thank you.

Everybody knows when you tell a kid, "Don't watch that!" You have created an enormous level of curiosity that those kids will go home and Google "Obama's school address". And while they're looking around they'll learn about health care for all people.

So I agree with the right.


To the parents of those mindless students, don't click on this link;

Really, I mean it.

Lucy Van Pelt: Are you afraid of responsibility? If you are, then you have hypengyophobia.

Charlie Brown: I don't think that's quite it.

Lucy Van Pelt: How about cats? If you're afraid of cats, you have ailurophasia.

Charlie Brown: Well, sort of, but I'm not sure.

Lucy Van Pelt: Are you afraid of staircases? If you are, then you have climacaphobia. Maybe you have thalassophobia. This is fear of the ocean, or gephyrobia, which is the fear of crossing bridges. Or maybe you have pantophobia. Do you think you have pantophobia?

Charlie Brown: What's pantophobia?

Lucy Van Pelt: The fear of everything.

Charlie Brown: THAT'S IT!

Kinda hits the Conservatives right on their heads.

George Bush did this in 1991 too. The Dems were also not happy.

Pretty simple. The adults are tuning this moron out so now he is looking for another audience.

(Well at least most adults).

I am old enough to remember the Civil Rights era and I remember quite clearly what it was like for a conservative family and how they feared the federal government doing the right thing. Somehow they survived and I was politicized--to the left. Thank God.

I always thought I was conservative.
However the term conservative today, to me, means...........
Doom and gloom and make everything into a scare tactic.
Is not possible that doing something out of the box for a change might be helpful. We sure have been stuck in the box for way too long.

I remember GHWB doing the same thing. I remember that we watched it in class. I don't remember a bunch of morons talking about hypnotism and brainwashing or keeping their kids home. How ridiculous.
