Posted on 09/02/2009 9:04:57 PM PDT by steve0

This is the heart of the matter. 48 year old male, accosts you and your five year old out in public. Starts talking directly to your child while ignoring you. What would be your reaction. Its historic for you as its never happened before.

Worse yet he has interrupted an important activity you both were engaged in. You don't want to be impolite but isn't he the one that's impolite by presumptuously interrupting? Even worse the presumptions creep asks your kindergartner what the kindergartner can do for him. All the while he has not once looked over at you to determine if you have a look of disapproval but continues to directly engage your child. But I guess its all unicorns and cotton candy if the end result is that some liberal objective is met.

He might be a totally nice guy. Or he might take your child captive for 19 years. But all things considered, I think it’s worth the risk. I’m being sarcastic I think you should’ve told him to take a hike.

You stand between the old man and your child and politely, forcefully, tell him to back the hell up before he gets an education.

Creepy OLD man at the age of 48???? I resent that. I’m more than 48 and I’m NOT old. However, in Obama’s case, and considering his attempt at indoctrimation next Tuesday, Creepy does fit nicely.

I'd kick him in the balls then run like hell with child in hand. No creep is going to get my child.

Put yourself between him and the child, and loudly and boldly tell the guy to get away from you and your child. Use profanity if you must. Use language that will embarrass him. Let everyone around you know what this guy is trying to do. Get real hot and bothered. You will make your point known to him AND others around you.

Next, step back a few steps, then hold your ground. DO NOT turn away. STARE HIM DOWN. Make him retreat.

If he doesn't leave continue making a commotion. Let everyone know he's a creep.

After the confrontation, go about the store for awhile. 10-15 minutes or longer. Do your shopping. Calm yourself down

When leaving keep your senses ALERT.

My message to my local school board about this creepy guy and his band of merry old men in Washington bothering my kids in school was:

Dear Superintendent, President and School Board Members,
We are the parents of three children in the xxxxxx School District in elementary, middle and high schools. In connection with President Obama’s scheduled speech to all of the nation’s public schoolchildren next week, we have a few questions:

1. Does the federal government exercise control over the local public elementary and other schools? That is, can the President of the United States dictate the timing and subject matter of presentations to OUR school students? Does the School Board have a choice concerning whether to broadcast President Obama’s speech?

2. If the school board has a choice, when will the school board meet to decide its course of action? If there is no special or regular meeting to make the decision, when and how will that decision be made?

3. Do school principals have a choice concerning whether to broadcast President Obama’s speech to all of its students? Do teachers have a choice concerning whether or when to broadcast the speech? Will all teachers be required to broadcast the speech and conduct the federal government’s recommended pre-speech activities and follow up discussions as an addition to the regular school day curriculum?

4. If the decision is made to broadcast the President’s speech in the classroom, will parents be offered a choice to exempt their children from this broadcast and its attendant activities without a marked absence or other penalty?

In summary I am very concerned after reviewing the federal lesson plans sent out by the Dept of Education that the format doesn't promote healthy debate. It assumes the student will agree with the speaker.

My suggestion is for my local xxxxxx School District to broadcast a message to all parents along the lines of: "In order to not interrupt scheduled instructional learning and lessons, the xxxxxx District will not be participating in President Obama’s live broadcast on Sept. 8. However, the speech will be recorded and archived; a link will be provided on the District Web site to allow students and their families to access the speech at home."

Thank you very much for your responses to these questions prior to the September 8th event.

Sincerely,

You tell your child that the old man is a little senile and we are just going to entertain him for now.

If he gets too pushy we will tell him go GO AWAY !!.

If he does not GO AWAY we will FORCE him to do so.

You cannot let yourself or your family to fall in line with someone just because it's the nice or the unconfrontational thing to do.

JUST SAY NO !!!

The best protection is being direct. Child molesters know the law, know the score, know where every parent is on the playground. They run like cockroaches when confronted. Just ask the question...”do you have a criminal record for child molestation?”

No, he is a faux President trying to indoctrinate out children, he tried once with a video shown in some of our schools and next tuesday he is going to broadcast directly to schools that allow it, there was no warning, no alert to parents. Read the post again, carefully:)

Later someone else, obviously someone he knows, comes over talking about how important this creepy guy is, how there is books about him, trying to motivate the kindergartner or seventeen year old to be interested in this conversation. He wants your child to consider what it took to be in such an important job as his and why it is important to listen to such important people as him. These other people want your child to draw a picture or write down what such important comments are coming from such an important man. The creep wants your kid to think about if he can do the things the creep is asking him to do. Now this same guy, who is not even a teacher much less your child’s teacher, wants them to do all sorts of academic things associated with all the important ideas shared by the oh so important man. Finally the weirdo says “Why don’t you write letters to yourself about what you can do to help me.“ If you distance yourself, just a slight bit, from the context of this whole incident you see how purposeful and subtle is this leftist attempt at propaganda.

Thanks. re-read the post.

“Child of my loins, we do not listen to foreigners. They know nothing of our ways. The American.”

“God, Guts and Glory”

They know nothing about:

Self Determination

The Right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness

Personal Responsibility

Son/Daughter do not listen to anyone who is not an American. I say this not of arrogance but out of love.

Love for God, Love for you(my family), love of country and love of self.

I will teach what is important and you will decide the order of importance.

You will never listen to anyone of no importance and that includes the Present of the United States.

Why? Most have never lived any of the ways they want you to live. In fact, most of mindless palaver they spought has never, in all of humanity, ever, ever worked. Not in this lifetime and not ever.

Most people like the vaccuous, gas bag, have even balanced their own check book, much less run a business.

Why should you listen them or him?

What are their accomplishments?

How do you their accomplishments?

Without proof of their identity and accomplishments, how and why would you blindly follow them?

Are you aware that many people like this, exist solely to undercut your identity, will, and goals? Why would you listen to someone like that? What is the value? Will your life be measurable and demonstrably improved through their supposed leadership and advice?

Would you listen to man who says “I am my brothers keeper” as it is written in the bible.

Are you aware the bible never mentions in the first person or commands you to become your brothers keeper?

Why?

Because as Cain killed Able, God called to him asking “here is Able, so I might speak with him>”

What was Cain’s response?

Why Father “Am I my brother’s keeper?”.

What about a person would claim scripture, of Christians, when has said repeatedly, “We are not a Christian Nation”, What about a person like that would make his opinionn important.

Clearly, he is proven to contort and stretch a scripture text, that has no meaning or relevance to what he is telling you.

Would you take advice from someone who cannot or will not prove his identity and background?

Why should you?

In an exercise of not subtle intimidation, public and private school teachers during the fall 2008 campaign were asking little kids across America how their parents were going to vote and then holding mock elections in classroom asking how the kids would vote if they could. Wonder of wonders, who do you think won the classroom elections?

Fireside chats directly to the kiddies are among other things advance campaiging for next time. This is a far cry from passing through town in a motorcade. Instant telecommunications is a double edged sword. Good God! Who would want this Marxist stranger’s messages imprinted on their child’s brain.
