Something's Very Wrong Here.....

I find this video very disturbing. It's a video showing elementary school children in New Jersey being taught to sing President Obama's praises. Now, I have nothing against patriotic songs, nor do I have anything against teaching children respect for the office of the Presidency or other governmental entities. (Although, as an adult, I often wonder if I can ever respect for the persons filling those positions.) What disturbs me is teaching children to praise the person not the institution. Why can't we teach children about the Constitution, our Democratic form of government, and ideals of freedom and self-reliance? Isn't there something ultimately wrong to teach children to praise a person filling a governmental office, and not teach them to say the Pledge of Allegiance?

Oh my hell! I agree with the text in your post. People want to take away the pledge of allegiance and prayer in school, but they are having kids sing that crap?!
I hope that he is not in office when my son is old enough to go to school, cause he sure as shit won't be singing those songs, or any songs of the sort.
What is happening to this country?
