Libs really believe that. They don’t think that normal people should be raising kids. They think the all-knowing State should raise them.

People who take Obama seriously aren't smart enough to advise parents on anything.

Fascists and communists have been saying this for as long as I can remember. They alway think that the state can do a better job.

Public education, as championed by people like Harwood, has been dumbing down American children for decades.

“Libs really believe that. “

Libs can’t grasp that the Kenyan’s motives are suspect. The real story is that the Kenyan has lost the trust of America.

Gee, maybe if he didn’t propose death panels to abort the baby boomers things would be different.

Everytime he defends Obama on CNBC you can hear the other anchors’ eyes rolling like slot machines. This guy drank the kool aid long ago.

It is often very difficult to tell which end of a Liberal the hot gas is emanating from.

My grandson is not going to be allowed to watch the Fuhrer because I raised my daughter with a keen intelligence to spot Fascists and evil doers.

Why is it Obama talks about his Mother “Homeschooling” him,
But the Rats are Violently opposed to “Homeschooling”.
In Fact the have Labeled “Homeschoolers”, Terrorists.
Therefore Obama’s Mother was a Terrorist and as the Fruit of that training Obama himself is a Terrorist.
Hey, Were All Terrorists now!

"Libs really believe that. They don’t think that normal people should be raising kids. They think the all-knowing State should raise them."

Look to the inner-city to see how liberals raise kids.

They're not smart enough to raise their own kids huh?

There's more to that statement than meets the ears.

Like all good communists they hate the family and can’t resist taking a shot at parents whenever they can.

The family competes with the state for the minds of the young. Therefore the family must be destroyed.

What's a John Harwood?
And why should his opinion matter more than the contents of our family's pooper-scooper?

The poor loser is intellectually challenged. If anything, I see the direct opposite:

Those parents smart enough to raise their own children normal and healthy, certainly don't need the help of the US president to perform the task; even if it's offered, not imposed.

Think real hard. What subculture with a deathgrip on "entitlements" produce the greatest number of bastards and criminals?

They don't think any parent is smart enough to raise their own children.

They need to be stopped.

Why are liberals so anti-freedom?

I think that all O-bots are dumber then dirt however I would never dream of taking their kids away because of it.

It just proves my contention that scratch a liberal and you find a want-to-be dictator.

The answer, Mr. Harwood, is to put sterilization drugs in the drinking water. But of course no one in our government is going to suggest anything like that are they?

They’re Marxists.

Read below (NOTE especially #’s 40, 41:

Communist Goals (1963)

Documention below

Congressional Record—Appendix, pp. A34-A35

January 10, 1963

Current Communist Goals

EXTENSION OF REMARKS OF HON. A. S. HERLONG, JR. OF FLORIDA

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

Thursday, January 10, 1963

Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America.

At Mrs. Nordman’s request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following “Current Communist Goals,” which she identifies as an excerpt from “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen:

[From “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen]

CURRENT COMMUNIST GOALS

1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)

12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”

31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture—education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].

39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [”]united force[”] to solve economic, political or social problems.

43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

Hillary, Barack, and the rest of the socialists think they are smart enough to raise our kids (whom they don't know and don't care about). Yet they think that we, as loving parents and patriotic Americans, are not smart enough to raise our own children.

The fact that we want to control the propaganda that those statists direct at our children proves that we are right and that they are wrong. I want my kids to encounter socialists and other forms of evil, but I want that encounter to be controlled so that they genuinely understand how a socialist road paved with such apparent "good intentions" will always lead to the same destination.
