When my daughter returned home from Kindergarten Friday afternoon, I discovered in her backpack a letter to parents from the school district superintendent. It read, in part:
President Obama has scheduled a back-to-school address to our nation’s school children on Tuesday, the 8th of September, 2009 The White House informed schools that the President’s speech will challenge students to work hard, set educational goals, and take responsibility for their learning.
Students in grades nine through twelve will have the opportunity to listen to, or opt out of, the President’s speech. President Obama’s message aligns well with secondary level instruction.
Opt out of?
The President will “challenge students to work hard.”
Opt out of?
The President will encourage students to “set educational goals.”
Opt out of?
The President will ask students to “take responsibility for their learning.”
What the hell is there to opt out of?
I could barely contain my outrage. If the school district planned to show a video of Bill Cosby urging kids to stay in school, no letter would have been sent home. No opt-out options would have been presented. It would have been either in the curriculum or out of the curriculum and if it was in, all students would have been expected to partake of it. But in the case of this strange President, whose motives are suspicious, we need a letter to go home to parents. Kids get to opt out of this strange scary leader’s message.
I ask you, if some kid’s nutjob parents were holocaust deniers, would that kid be allowed to “opt out of ” instruction on WWII? The school district in this case sees fit to include President Obama’s address in their curriculum but political pressure from an insatiably viscous right wing, forced them to give parents an “out”. “It’s bad enough that strange looking man is our President, I’m not going to have him lecturing my kid.”
So folks, I’ve had it. I’m tired of waking up each morning to some new half-baked, cock-eyed, nutjob theory about Barack Obama. I say let’s cut our losses. It’s time for impeachment and since our Congress can’t seem to get anything productive done in a decent amount of time (look at health care reform), I shall help them. Here are the articles of impeachment in no particular order.
Article I: Whereas Barack Hussein Obama is not a citizen of these United States and has therefore been illegally sworn into office, he must be removed.
Article II: Whereas Barack Hussein Obama wishes to legislate the deaths of the elderly and sickly or retarded infants to fulfill his devious socialist agenda, he must be removed.
Article III: Whereas Barack Hussein Obama intends to dismantle our sacred Constitution and rob the country from its citizens, he must be removed.
Article IV: Whereas Barack Hussein Obama intends to supplant Christianity and make our nation a Muslim state, he must be removed.
Article V: Whereas Barack Hussein Obama shall attempt to brainwash our children, forcing them to deviate from our time honored traditions, he must be removed.
Seems to me five articles of impeachment are a good start, don’t you think?
And think what a better country we will have with Barack Obama returned to ordinary civilian life. All order will be restored. We’ll have a President we can be “comfortable” with again, one who reminds us of the 42 men who held the office prior to Obama. That’s what we really want, isn’t it? We didn’t ask for this much change. We didn’t really think before we voted last November of what it would really be like to see someone like him addressing the nation as if he were the leader of us all. My God, as if he were the leader of us all.
Well guess what folks! He is our President! Barack Obama is our President. He is your President if you voted for him. He is your President if you did not. He is your President if you are black. He is your President if you are white. He is your President if you are progressive and dammit, he is your President if you are conservative. He is OUR President.
Perhaps once we present our five articles of impeachment to the US Congress and they see the foolishness in black and white, they will for one moment stop worrying about the next election. They will for one moment stop currying favor with the lunatic or severely retarded among their constituents. Maybe they will finally say once and for all:
Obama is my President. I will challenge him on policy. I will challenge him on ideology. But he is my President and as a patriotic citizen of this country, I will defend his honor. I will defend to my last breath the assertion that regardless of political differences, he loves this country and wants what is best for it.
Obama is our President and your children have nothing to fear from him.
And then with that message stated loud and clear by every United States Congressman and Senator, Americans will finally understand that silly season is over.
If you still cannot accept Barack Obama as your President then it is time for you to opt out of this country. Get on a plane, leave and don’t look back. You are a sad excuse for an American citizen. Who needs you?
