Obama School Speech

Have not been blogging here in a long time.

Just read President Obama's school speech or speech to students. WTF is all the hoopla about this time? Have heard most of what he said in prior speeches; think he changed the hour when his mother used to wake him up to study before she went off to work. I could be wrong, but thought it was a bit past 4:30AM.

People are oh so silly; not a thing in that speech that I would object to students hearing. Oh, I am sure some kindergarten student's will be clueless as to some of the references; maybe not, what with all that is readily available to hear on television.

Hard to remember back to elementary school. Do know I was not all that interested in history and memorizing dead president's names and years served in office. I got A's in Problems in American Democracy and other government type classes, but the stuff did bore me to tears. I can imagine the same might be true of today's kindergarten ~ elementary school students.

It does seem that citizens are intent upon verbally beating President Obama up, no matter what he does. He did not create the mess of government or the country is in ~ many, many presidents and congress people for years before he took office and citizens who keep voting for them did.

Was it 1972 when we had the first "long lines at the pumps" gas crisis? The war in Iraq could have been averted if citizens and elected officals had been diligent in doing something about dwindling oil supplies long ago. And thank you to those who took action.

Just like the Armageddon that would befall us in the year 2000, the speech that was suppose to indoctrinate our youth. Now who was spreading the baseless lies…..hmm…..oh ya, “Fake News”. Is anyone real surprised? Too funny.
