I saw that wretched thing but had no idea where it was made and under what circumstances.
The wiki account of the town indicates it's 2/3 white. The racial component of that class seemed quite different. I raise this because I think even in this neighborhood of uber libs the upper class white parents who are predominant would not like this kind of thing but more recent immigrants might think this normal and poor black parents might think it great.

May be not that nice of a township. Here is a story about the county.

This is not a surprise. It's standard practice in all authoritarian regimes. The people that thought this up probably didn't think anything of it, and there will be those on leftwing sites that will defend it and call any objections "paranoia".

Of course, if we had children exalting GWB, these same people would be equally supportive, no doubt.

Rob Crawford

Of course, if we had children exalting GWB, these same people would be equally supportive, no doubt.

Many lefties claim that happened, of course. As I understood it, they took a video of some kids praying FOR President Bush, with the relatively unusual (in my experience) addition of a cardboard stand-in for him, and claim the kids were praying TO President Bush.

I wonder about the lefties who claim there was a cult around President Bush and NOT one around Obama -- are they confused by expressions like "thank goodness it wasn't Gore", are they blind to cases like this video, or are they simply dishonest?

ben

Simply dishonest.

Gregory Koster

An obvious forgery: I didn't see a single barrel of absinthe in the background, Believe me, the kids would be crowding around it afterwards. Or maybe they went directly for the hard stuff and crowded around the shellac can...

You wonder at the witlessness involved on the school's part. They really thought that no one would find out about this? Or just didn't care?

Janet

One of the aspects of the song that is so sickening is that one verse is based on an old Sunday school song - "Jesus Loves the Little Children"

"red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in His sight. Jesus loves the little children of the world."

They inserted Obama.

Another Bob

Very North Korean.

Rob Crawford

They inserted Obama.

Nah -- in their minds they just substituted an equivalent variable.

Jack is Back!

This just in:

At a hurriedly called press conference in Pittsburgh, where the President is attending the G-20 meeting, Robert Gibbs, press secretary to President Obama had this to say about the viral video of school children in Burlington Township, NJ singing the praises of Barack Hussein Obama.

"This all part of the silly season that started with the right wing, domestic terrorist racist mob thinking the President's speech to school children were some kind of indoctrination to the Obama principles of radicalism and Chicago style thugism. We believe this is another attempt by those who would say "No" instead of "Hell yes, we love hope and change" to paint this administration in the most extreme ways possible. We reject this assault on the common sense and destiny of our American republic and those who deserve what we have brought forth." (AP)

The Great Helmsman is our light
He will steer us through the night
Through the storm and towards the light
But not for you because you're white.....

Obama is just alright with me
Obama is just alright
Oh yeah
Obama is just alright with me
Obama is just alright.....

Cecil Turner
She promotes her book as a tool that “allows children to see themselves through the inspirational story of President Obama growing up as an ordinary child asking, Who will change the world? Ultimately, he realizes that he will.”
This lady has a particularly bad case of full-blown Obamaphilia. I wonder if the lefties can start to understand why some people questioned the lesson plans on the inauguration and Obama's speech to students (that has since been sanitized)? This video is beyond creepy, and I guarantee it's the tip of the iceberg of rabid lefty educators providing thinly veiled indoctrination as part of the curriculum.
matt

my latest blog actually uses Steely Dan's "Only a Fool Would Say That" as its title.

appropriate to the day.

Elliott

I can't link to it at present but "What the world needs now is Obama" is somewhere in the JOM comment archives. (I don't think an SSP alert is required as the lyrics are by Burt Backbarack.)

Note that this is the same Chris Manno, and the same school district, that staged an anti-terrorism exercise where the terrorists were Christian fundamentalists upset that a daughter of a group member wasn't allowed to pray in class. No, seriously. http://sweetness-light.com/archive/pa-school-does-hostage-drill-featuring-christian-terrorists

Patrick R. Sullivan

Just as in the exchange between Lolita Davidovich and Tom Hulce in The Inner Circle:

Anastasia: Who do you love more, me or Comrade Stalin?

Ivan Sanshin: [without hesitation] Comrade Stalin, of course!

In honor of his love for various dictators:

"The Great Helmsman is our light
He will steer us through the night
Through the storm and towards the light

Jane

We believe this is another attempt by those who would say "No" instead of "Hell yes, we love hope and change" to paint this administration in the most extreme ways possible

Except when we get to the "most extreme ways possible" he always comes back with something even more extreme.

Porchlight

Think 2012 (or 2010):

Who shall rule this American nation?
Say, boys, say!
Who shall sit in the loftiest station?
Say, boys, say!
Shall the man who trampled on the banner?
They who now their country would betray?
They who murder the innocent freed men?
Say, boys, say!

Chorus:
No never! no, never!
The loyal millions say;
And 'tis they who rule this American nation,
They, boys, they!

Who shall rank as the family royal?
Say, boys, say!
If not those who are honest and loyal?
Say, boys, say!
Then shall one elected as our servant
In his pride, assume a regal way?
Must we bend to the human dictator?
Say, boys, say!

Chorus:
No never! no, never!
The loyal millions say;
And 'tis they who rule this American nation,
They, boys, they!

Shall we tarnish our national glory?
Say, boys, say!
Blot one line from the wonderful story?
Say, boys, say!
Did we vainly shed our blood in battle?
Did our troops resultless win the day?
Was our time and our treasure all squander'd?
Say, boys, say!

Chorus:
No never! no, never!
The loyal millions say;
And 'tis they who rule this American nation,
They, boys, they!


Cheers me up every time.

fd--great catch--I blogged it but it's such a news rich day I can't be sure it'll be posted.

Appalled

Here's a story I want to see in our schools.

Once upon a time, there was a young person who discovered, one day, thinking under a tree, that he had the power to change the world. He had visions of world peace, universal healthcare, and muzak that people actually wanted to hear. He also saw, in a blinding flash, the pathway to those visions.

He was staggered for a moment with the greatness in his grasp. The power. The glory. But then he realized another thing. Not only did he have the power to change the world, he had wisdom and foresight. He saw his visions realized, and the muttering of the people against them. He suddenly understood that all of his perfect plans had consequences, and he could not forsee all of those. he saw himself in the public square, not as a leader, but as the convict, being angrily pointed at. He saw, too, that he was rightly convicted, and his oncoming death would be justified.

He realized that he could change the world. But the world did not want changing, or even need it all that much.

And the boy grew to manhood, and had a tidy job which seemed to please him, and a cute wife, and beautiful children. He also had a small smile on his face at all times. And everyone wondered what his secret was.

He never told his secret, though. And when the man died and he was mourned as a good simple man, the world was pretty much the same as he left it.

Discussion question -- is this a happy ending?

JOM FAMILY UPDATE:

Just a quick note: Bad was checked into the hospital Tuesday after having severe headaches and very high blood pressure. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers. We don't have much more the way of details at this point.

A friend here has sent her flowers on behalf of all of us at JOM to tell her we love her.

You can certainly email me -- jomhitandrun @ gmail . com -- and I'll share whatever I know or get in the way of updates.

Porchlight

Dearest bad, you and your family are in my prayers and I wish you a speedy recovery. To our JOM friend who sent her flowers, thank you! And thank you Hit for keeping us posted.

Dave (in the People's Banana Republic of MA)

"Old Obama had a farm
A-C-O-R-N..."

centralcal

Thanks, as always Hit, for keeping us posted. Wonderful gesture - the flowers. I am sure we would all do the same, if we knew where to send.

Praying for bad.

Stephanie

Prayers for Bad are underway. Had this same scary situation two years ago. Left work with a severe headache and got home with full blown Bell's Palsy. It took a trip to the ER to determine the paralysis was BP and not a stroke, but it was a scary time. And the BP relented after about three weeks (and some HBP medication).

Here's praying that her situation will be produce a good outcome.

Jane

I am sure we would all do the same, if we knew where to send.

That's for sure. And bad WE LOVE YOU, so get better soon.

clarice

Ditto.

God's blessings on you, bad.

Captain Hate

Just as in the exchange between Lolita Davidovich and Tom Hulce in The Inner Circle:

I really enjoyed that movie in the way that it didn't hold back in its unflinching portrayal of life in the Soviet Union; very atypical of Whoreyweird. That Hulce attained his position of status because of how shitty Soviet projectors were and his innovative way of dealing with it was hilarious.

Get Well, bad.

Mass GOP (yeah, there is one, who knew?) Seeks Injunction Against Appointment to Senate of Executor of Ted Kennedy's Will

Jane

I think that is great news Dave - however apparently Dukakis pulled the same stunt in his tenure so there is some precedent.

We really need a "government hypocrisy of the day" or maybe "hour" award around here.

Rocco

Please send her my love and get well wishes, also a big thanks to whomever sent the flowers.

Jane, I was really hoping they'd pick Peewee just so the rest of the country could be reminded again what a joke this state is.

I'll bet that's why A'madinnerjihad had that aura of light around him at the UN?

Kim will be thrilled to hear that our public schools will be screening her favorite movie in the name of the Glorious One.

From October 5TH anyone anywhere can buy a license to screen the film in their school/pub/church/ multinational oil corporation. First screening date: October 24th (=international day of climate action).
Charlie (Colorado)

Discussion question -- is this a happy ending?

Yes.

Especially for everyone who didn't want to have their world ordered by some teenager sitting under a tree.

And I love the story.

Jane

Jane, I was really hoping they'd pick Peewee just so the rest of the country could be reminded again what a joke this state is.

He might be an improvement. I've been trying to figure out what Judge has this matter. Have you seen that info anywhere?

Ignatz

Kim would also be amused at this video of a guy asking a couple of airhead actresses and the numbskull director of Kim's favorite movie, which claims air travel is the greatest contributor to global warming, how they got to the premiere.
Classic Hollywood entitlement, tolerance and, yes of course, profound stupidity.

daddy

Great late call to Steyn on Rush's show today.

ExSoviet immigrant suggests using the NY Times and WAPO as the new toilet paper, just like they used to use Pravda in Russia. Say's it would solve the damage hi-class TP does to the planet, plus keep the US media rags still in existence.

So Kruschev was wrong.

He won't hang the West with the rope we sold to them.

Instead they'll wipe our asses with the papers that we wipe our asses with.

Captain Hate

Lollerz @ the modern limousine libs and their strongarm tactics to prevent inconvenient questions. Still ignorant after all these years.

daddy

Golly,

The G-20 anti-Capitalism protesters in Pittsburgh are getting chaotic and unruly and the Tear gas is already being launched at the mob.

I thought it was we Conservatives that were the unruly mobs, not the compassionate Left.

Dave (in the People's Banana Republic of MA)

What city in their right mind would ever want to host one of these meetings?

SWarren

My prayers are with you Bad, multiplied by all the members of my prayer circle.

Jack is Back!

Get well and back soon, Bad! You are in our prayers.

Mark Steyn was terrific today. As a political satirist he is on par with P. J. O'Rourke, in my opinion, but is even funnier as a speaker. He has an easy job when you think about it, muck like Mort Sahl did. He just lets the news, especially the actions of the greens, dems, liberals, MSM, dictate his schtick for the day. He doesn't even need much imagination or embellishment to add on - just read what they say. Its a ton of laughs.

But his monologue today on the WaPo reporting the new environmental threat to the world being perpetrated by the USA was our over-use of 2 ply toilet paper was a thing of sheer brilliance and invitational sarcasm.

RichatUF

To bad, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Get well soon.

Captain Hate

What city in their right mind would ever want to host one of these meetings?

Sad to say but every large city has a bunch of useless monkey-spankers that insist that the path to economic utopia depends upon the stupid convention business. If I were king they'd be the first to go.

Announcement:In case you missed it, I am proposing a new slogan--

Jack;

That is nothing compared to the dangers posed by carbonated soft drinks.

Captain, is monkey spanker an official government title yet?

Ignatz

--Captain, is monkey spanker an official government title yet?--

Indeed. I believe we have a MSOTUS also know as the MSIC.

Bad, I have a naughty joke for you...but you have to get well to hear it.

Prayers for you, girl.

A tweet from someone listening to Andrew Breitbart giving a speech:

@andrewbreitbart said he's starting bigtolerance for gays, blacks, & latino conservs.

Very, very eeenteresting. This man really is going to literally cause some liberal heads to explode.

And I mean literally in a very literal sense, too.

Captain Hate

Matt, besides what Ignatz designated at the top of the carp-heap, it is a generally accepted term with some regional variations: Southern states prefer "weasel-whackers" and coastal states have "flounder-floggers"...

OL nothing should speed bad's recovery like the anticipation of a naughty joke.

Get well soon, bad!

Obama, All Bun, No Bratwurst!

raaa

Are you republican trolls STILL on payroll from Health Insurance? The 50,000 of you should go commit mass suicide and have Sarah Palin urinate on you or whatever you sick clowns do.

Meantime, this was recorded for Black History Month and every elementary school I've ever been to has retarded songs like this -- it's what they DO! They're teachers, not composers.

You ass clown republicans are SO FU--ING ANGRY that Karl Rove had to back out at the last minute and not STEAL the election for McPalin like they were planning. Even after disenfranchising over 5 million democrat votes, YOU STILL LOST THE ELECTION, WHITE RED NECKS!

And, no matter WHAT you do, you are going to be in the minority soon, as we will soon be a BROWN nation.

So, go deport yourselves to South Fucking Africa and shiver with fear at all the colored threat around you. You loser moron cowardly Republican scum sucking ass clowns.

Hey raaa, are you happiest that Obama hasn't managed to pass a health care bill, that he hasn't managed to pass cap & trade, that he hasn't managed to shut down Gitmo, that he hasn't managed to end indefinite detentions, that he hasn't managed to lose the war in Iraq, or that he hasn't managed to lose the war in Afghanistan yet?

Me, I'm happiest that he's an obvious one-termer whose overreach may cripple his horrible political party.

Bad Update:

I won't do a lot of updates on JOM (email me instead for those), but since this is timely with today's note, I will...I just got an email from her husband...

First, she loves the flowers and thanks the JOM community. She's still in the hospital, still getting tests, still more questions than answers, and definitely still needs our thoughts and prayers.

Neo

I bet after the toe-tapping Obama worship song, the teachers broke out in a spontaneous refrain of Stephen Foster's "Old Black Joe".

Neo
Relying on inside sources, quite possibly Michelle Obama herself, Andersen describes how Dreams came to be published — just as I had envisioned it in my articles on the authorship of Dreams. With the deadline pressing, Michelle recommended that Barack seek advice from “his friend and Hyde Park neighbor Bill Ayers.”

To flesh out his family history, Obama had taped interviews with various family members. Andersen writes, “These oral histories, along with a partial manuscript and a truckload of notes, were given to Ayers.” Andersen quotes a Hyde Park neighbor, “Everyone knew they were friends and that they worked on various projects together. It was no secret. Why would it be? People liked them both.”
