Obama's Speech To Kids
I ran across an article by a fellow intellectual who believes that these conservative nutcases are ushering in the "American Apocalypse" at a faster pace than ever before; that these conservative "anti-intellectuals" are insisting that our children should remain on their path toward ignorance perhaps so that a conservative can be voted into office to finish the destruction of the American Dream and blame the liberals? Either way, it sickens and thoroughly angers me over the disgusting misinformation that runs rampant throughout many popular media outlets, leaving people like myself struggling to sift through ignorant opinion to find the truth. Throughout my college career, never has it been so hard to uncover the truth, especially now that its being destroyed before ever being published.
So what was all this hubub about Obama's speech to kids? Nothing more than an appeal to our youth to continue to succeed wherever possible and not let failure or external forces prevent our success. Here is the speech (and you can read the entire speech's transcript here):
And here are the reactions (of which I would like to point out the parent's decision to have her children not watch the speech disgusted me, where all the kids and teachers understood the point of the speech perfectly - no hidden agenda, clear as day):
It seems like this type of idiocy is coming back into style, eh? Conspiracy theorists, you have a job again!
