Thread: respect or indoctrination

  1. #1

    Default respect or indoctrination

    Is this just showing respect for our president or indoctrinating our youth.

    Teachers I would really like to hear your thoughts.

    I thought it was creepy. Reminded me too much of the songs kids would sing about God in Sunday School.

    Hmmmm....Have I heard that tune before ? Respect or indoctrination ? Don't misinterpret my intent here. Obama is no Hitler, but there is a parallel to what is captured in both classrooms.

    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    Yeah the Nazi analogy is where the wing nuts are going with this viral u-tube clip. The reality is; it was one teacher, in one class. We have millions of classes, thousands of school districts, and 10's of millions of kids.

    But then again; sensationalism sells.
    I am 49, bald, ugly, and don't own a single cool thing. Kids like me though.

    This was something that I had thought about since I made my post earlier in the thread, and its something that I agree with unequivocally.

    Any serious comparison to the Nazis made by either political party against the other one is moronic anyway.

    Comparing Obama to the Nazis is ridiculous. Everyone knows he is a Communist.
