Obama Excludes Private and Catholic School Children From Easter Egg Roll Ticket Giveaway
cnsnews.com ^ | 03/24/2010 | Penny Starr

Posted on 03/24/2010 11:16:58 AM PDT by massmike

The Obama administration announced on Tuesday it has reserved 3,000 free tickets to the annual White House Easter Egg Roll for students in D.C.-area public and charter schools, but not for children who attend private or parochial schools.

Why exclude children in private and parochial schools, asked the father of a parochial school student at Tuesday’s press conference where U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan and District of Columbia Mayor Adrian Fenty announced the ticket giveaway.

“These tickets are from the White House to public schools, and we’re appreciative, but there may be other things unrelated to this press conference,” Fenty responded. “That’s a great question.”

Obama excludes...

Get used to exclusion. Exclusion is Inclusion.

Marginalization is sharpest knife in the propagandist's draw. It can't be too long before the term "non-person" re-enters the lexicon in this the most inclusive of eras.

#####

Because the vast majority of them are “catholic” and not truly Catholic, I doubt that it will matter to them.

For the devout, yet another body blow from this uniquely repellent Administration.

White House Easter Egg Roll to Be Environmentally Friendly

This year’s White House Easter Egg roll will be eggs-actly what the bunny ordered. The environmentally concerned bunny, that is. A White House announcement Monday said the eggs at this year’s April 5 roll will be made from paperboard that contains no wood fibers from endangered forests, is recyclable and features vegetable-oil based inks and a water-based coating. What’s more, they’ll come in purple, pink, green and yellow and feature the stamped signatures of both President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama.

They deal in bombs, not Easter Eggs.

Obama is probably afraid he would just confuse them.

Color me so unsuprised. The mini-me fascists in the NYC school department do the same thing, in effect, with the so-called "gifted and talented" testing - if you come from a parochial school, they actively set up the testing conditions to ensure that your child scores at the retard level, or lower.

And last year Obama went out of his way to include children of gay and lesbian couples. This article doesn't mention if they were invited/included this year, but I'm sure you can guess...

“...how any Catholic could ever vote for a Democrat”

Used to be the most natural thing in the world for solid working class Catholics such as my grandparents, only a generation removed from Ellis Island, to vote Democrat. It was only later on that the Dem party became the avatar of the breakdown in values.

When I recall those times (through Grandma’s retelling them), it seemed the most natural thing in the world was to work hard, pay as you go, attend church, join a lodge, raise the children to carry on moral values, and vote for the `party of the little guy’, although it would eventually become the `party of the wealthy liberal hypocrite’.

Then Ronald Reagan came on the scene and we discovered the real champion of ordinary folks.

Oversimplified but true, IMO.

Man, if I were a private schooler in the area, I would help organize the biggest roll! We’d have REAl eggs, and candy, and have the greatest time! I’d also invite lots of GOOD Senators and Congressmen. They’d show.

I’m telling you, it would get press! And the kids would have so much fun.
