Combined Obama speech to schoolchildren and address to joint session of Congress

Exclusive, as always, to Chávezian Airspace.

Remember, kids, your enemy is Max Baucus, who pushes the counter-revolutionary revisionist line on public health.  Down with bourgeois reactionary medical authorities!  All power to President Obama’s deaf panels!  Let the bureaucrats at the Ministry of Health and the mass media “authorities” shudder before the invicible power of President Obama Thought!

  1. All power to President Obama’s deaf panels!

    I believe you have misheard.

  2. I’m still working on the translation, mds.

  3. It’s splitters like you, Michael, who are to blame.

  4. Can we get the soldiers to study Mao’s writings to learn how we can use acupuncture points to cause muteness?....in Rush Limbaugh? Then we’d have something worthwhile.

    Captcha “move” as in “you better move on”

  5. Houston Beijing Nairobi Djakarta Massachusetts San Francisco Chicago, we have a problem!

    One school district in Toronto, Ohio, decided to air the speech live for students in the third grade and up but not show it to younger children, according to CNN affiliate WTOV.

    How did they know the maximum activation age, comrades? How did they know? Let the purges of the Barack Obama Thought Education Team begin!

  6. There may be a slight flaw in the plan, comrade. My daughter dutifully participated in today’s indoctrination, but when I asked for a recitation of Dear Leader’s message, I was told: “It was well written and delivered and all, but face it dad, we hear that message constantly. If that’s all there was to it, kids’ behavior in school would be a lot better than it is.”

    I fear that the middle school condition, in contrast to deafness, may indeed be incurable.

  7. 6: See, she’s too old. Everyone in third grade and above was just “uvver-kay”. But keep it on the QT.

  8. 7: Got it. Now I see why my second grader did not get indoctrinated (this is Texas, after all). Too bad, that boy could use a good indoctrination. I fear iron trees will bloom before anything penetrates his consciousness too deeply, though.

  9. Because the Race to the Top is a top-down hierarchical authority that imposes its will on the people for the good of the people (well for some of the people some of the time):

    In order to qualify for the funding, states and districts must address four reform areas: adopting internationally benchmarked assessments and standards, rewarding effective teachers and principals, building new data systems and turning around low-performing schools. States are also ineligible for the money “if they have laws on the books prohibiting student performance from affecting teacher assessment.”

    Let the purges of the Barack Obama Thought Education Team begin! Indeed!!  Or we could all just start singing the Internationale together knowing deafness enhances the performance-based (captcha) outcome.

  10. Man, it’s really astonishing to be reminded how horrible China was under Mao. This is a lesson - no matter how bad things seem to be, they can always get a hell of a lot worse.

  11. Oh yes it can be worse:
    And what Obama plans to do on Sept. 8 with a planned speech directly to students in public schools across the United States may even be illegal, according to Mathew D. Staver, founder of Liberty Counsel as well as dean of Liberty University School of Law...

    Staver’s critique cited 20 U.S.C. § 3403, which regards the Department of Education and states, “No provision of a program administered by the Secretary or by any other officer of the Department shall be construed to authorize the Secretary or any such officer to exercise any direction, supervision, or control over the curriculum, program of instruction, administration, or personnel of any educational institution, school, or school system.”

    Staver’s concerns were echoed by others as well, including Liberty Legal Alliance spokesman Matt Barber, who said, “Not only is this a violation of federal law, it’s just plain creepy. It’s surreal. Obama’s actions here are right out of the playbooks of Saul Alinsky and Chairman Mao. Soviet Russia? Sure. America? No way. I’m furious. Hands off my children, Mr. President!”

  12. 10: I did find myself trying to imagine the mental state of the folks making the movie. A mix of terror and repressed glee for some? Terror and raw ambition for others? How big was each person’s real circle of trust?

  13. How big was each person’s real circle of trust?

    I see a pervasive pall of coercion, dominated by the Red Sun. Wow. One’s physical freedom depends on how those around you perceive your commitment to the current fantasy. Opting out is not an option. Scary stuff. Makes me feel grateful that someone thought it a good idea to wear a gun to a town hall meeting and didn’t feel compelled to stifle that urge.

  14. ah the “circle of trust”. Please see “Meet the Fockers” for the definitive work on this topic.
