Really have a hard time believing this.

Also, the fact that their kid was on a 5 week break makes me think this is a private school or something....

I believe it. We have really bad doctors, athletes, lawyers, etc. Why is it so hard to believe we have bad teachers that would do something like this?

I hope its just one little instance and blown out of proportion...its hard to know how true any of this is... I would be worried if it is widespread, or if it is mandated...

I just don't want to come off as an alarmist... these are alarming times, but I am not an alarmist.

I make my kids pray to Obama at night 7 times a day, facing Mecca.

mandated? are you serious? do you think somebody on the ron paul website would be the only one to notice if schools nationwide were forcing kids to salute the great leader obama?

Each president has his own mini cult of personality that forms in the days after they take office. This is out of line but nothing that a call to the schools office wouldn't resolve. The need for someone to blog about it is a primary indicator that they are more interested in making hay than solving the problem.

I don't think I'd call Obama's cult of personality "mini". There are a fair number of people whose level of fawning over a guy that's still essentially a politician borders on the ridiculous (I work with quite a few of them). And that's not even counting the media. ABC changing up their logo says a lot about their objectivity.

That said, this sounds isolated. Put it on the same category as the "Hitler Youth" type story prior to the election (i.e. people being stupid).

We had pictures of Bush and Rumsfeld in some teachers rooms, some were forced to pray. All this is, is payback for the last 8 years.

In 4 or 8 years it might change again, it is something that has been around since the 50's. Dem. or Rep., it is there to create a sense of leadership and sense of nation.

You dont have to agree with or like who is in charge, but this isnt going to corrupt your child and turn him into a liberal hippy. You do this at home, you teach them their values, not some teacher they only have for 1 year out of the 80 yrs they are alive.

There are way worse people that a teacher could have up, Che anybody? maybe ummm......Malcom X.

Malcolm X?!?!?

Are you f*cking serious?

[L]istening to leaders like Nasser, Ben Bella, and Nkrumah awakened me to the dangers of racism. I realized racism isn't just a black and white problem. It's brought bloodbaths to about every nation on earth at one time or another.

Brother, remember the time that white college girl came into the restaurant — the one who wanted to help the [black] Muslims and the whites get together — and I told her there wasn't a ghost of a chance and she went away crying? Well, I've lived to regret that incident. In many parts of the African continent I saw white students helping black people. Something like this kills a lot of argument. I did many things as a [black] Muslim that I'm sorry for now. I was a zombie then — like all [black] Muslims — I was hypnotized, pointed in a certain direction and told to march. Well, I guess a man's entitled to make a fool of himself if he's ready to pay the cost. It cost me 12 years.

That was a bad scene, brother. The sickness and madness of those days — I'm glad to be free of them.

That's the kind of personal integrity and accountability we should all aspire to.
