two nights ago, i wrote a blog about how sad i was to hear so many people coming down on the president for wanting to make a simple speech to school children about working hard and trying their best to acheive their goals.
last night i followed that up with a sarcastic blog, poking fun at all those people who cried "the sky is falling!" before they even read or heard president obama's speech. i was trying to equate their fears with the most ridiculous buncha tripe i could come up with. and i went to bed feeling pretty good about what i'd written.
as it turns out, i think i may have a bit of egg on my face. it seems the rumors that president obama CHANGED his ORIGINAL speech at the last minute... may actually be true!
apparently, his first draft included many, many passages in which he tried to subtly indoctrinate the unknowing youth of this great land into lives of corruption. and socialism. and corrupt socialism. and social corruption. and several other -isms and -uptions that i am not at liberty to address at the present time and/or in the near future. and/or possibly, the distant past.
i guess barack obama thought he could just sneak these little deceptions by the american public without our knowledge. but, thank goodness the right wingers were on. the. ball! you can call them arrogant, you can call them pig-headed, you can call them unpatriotic, you can call them selfish, you can call them sore losers, you can call them scared to death about the future of the republican party and you can even say that they would do anything at all to gain back a mere foothold of relevance in the politcal stratosphere-- up to and including running over with a muddy harley davidson their great grandmother's wedding dress, and then selling it back to her for three grand, even though they know she can't afford it, because she can barely afford her medication, because the healthcare system in this country is so damn screwed up...
.......actually, i'm sorry, i don't remember where i was going with that. but, anyway, i just received an email from rush limbaugh who received a copy of president obama's school children speech-- the first draft. and, while he would not reveal how he got his hands on this speech, i know for a fact that it was from a reliable source. because it was from the same guy who found barack obama's REAL birth certificate. the one that proves he was born in mexico.
so, here it is. a sample of what president obama REALLY wanted to tell our kids...
"I know some of you are still adjusting to being back at school. But I'm here today because I have something important to discuss with you. I'm here because I want to talk with you about your education and what's expected of all of you in this new school year. And I am also here to indoctrinate you.
Socialism is cool. If you're not a socialist, you won't have any friends to play with at recess time. It's also cool to be corrupt. So, don't listen to your teachers. They're only in it for the benjamins, anyway.
Hey, you know what else is cool? North Korea. Man, I wish I was a North Korean! Don't you wish you were a North Korean, too, kids? Yeah, I thought so. Boy, that would be sweet, wouldn't it?
So, remember, kids, when you go home tonight and your parents ask you what you learned in school today, you can tell them, 'if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao, you ARE going to make with anyone anyhow.' And, no matter what names anyone may call you-- or me-- you can tell them, 'sticks and stones may break my bones, but socialism is so much more rad than deomcracy.' "
wow. crazy, right?
that back-stabbin' sonofabitch.
the five things i fell in love with today...
1) barack obama.
2) michelle obama.
3) having a president in the white house who has a brain.
4) the soda guy owed me some money that he paid me back today. and, what's even better than that is he paid me back, while wearing clothes.
5) the fact that out of the scores of children who did not get to hear the president's speech, there were millions of others who did. and the thought that having a president with so much to offer, and a president who emerged from humble beginnings, can inspire so many kids throughout the world.
