OK speaking of conspiracies (I really was - see my post of earlier today here), I just got sent this poll on Facebook asking me to vote on whether the President of the United States of America should be allowed to speak to school children in a few days. Now I must say I’m way way past being surprised at some of the thinking currently emanating from the land of the free but this has got to be the pick of the bunch – the chatter on FB is that most respondents have said that ‘No’, it is not appropriate that President Obama speaks to the nations children but I’m not sure how they’d claim to know the results when the ‘poll’ is still open.
As far as I can ascertain the speech is going to be about persisting and staying in school – have I missed something? How can the president speaking directly to the nations children about their education be a bad thing? Is it really an evil plan to brain wash US children with baby eating liberal propaganda?
*EDIT* I now see references to Hitler’s Youth rallies popping up around the place but the connection fails me.
