What about what I said about a citizenship event hosted by the GOP at the Nixon library?
I don't know much about it, I don't care. It's not the issue of the thread but nice job trying to change subjects.

This outrage is an example of the right-wing's idea of political correctness, i.e., it's okay to tell racist, sexist, and homophobic jokes, but god forbid kids should sing a song praising the president. The songs are quite innocuous, and the kids are cute. When the President starts demanding that songs in his praise be sung, we'll have something to be concerned about. Frankly, this is another idiotic issue by Fox News that only appeals to fringe elements in the Republican Party (there's a lot of fringe these days).
But of course youobjected to kids singing silent night at the school Christmas oops 'Holiday' school choral....pc ideed
"Some guys play in all-star games, some guys don't. I don't know who picks all those all-star teams. In all honesty, I don't know who picks the combine, for that matter," Belichick said. "How does (Miami-Ohio offensive lineman Brandon) Brooks not get invited to the combine? How did Vollmer not get invited to the combine? I don't know. We can't really worry about that. We just have to try to evaluate them the best we can."
Sorry, but I don't see anything political or partisan in the song. My daughter is in 8th grade and is involved in an extra credit program. Last weekend there was an event at the Nixon Library that the students would get extra credit for. It was hosted by the Orange County GOP. It was supposed to be about citizenship. It was voluntary and I let my daughter make her own choice about wether she wanted to go or not. She said no. There are no extra credit events sponsored by Democrats. For the record, I am an Independent and I see no wrong in either honoring the president or going to a citizenship event sponsored by the GOP. I just don't like the fact that they are enticing the students with extra credit to go to a GOP event. If a child's family is Democrat and don't wish to send them to a GOP indoctrination event, then these students don't get the extra credit.
These kids aren't 8th graders. It's good that the 8th graders got to opt out. These kids should participate in things political based on choice, Repub or Democ. I would be shocked to learn that this had nothing to do with their teacher. If you put aside who the president is, you have to ask wether or not small school age children should be even thinking about this stuff. Let's leave our own political agendas out of the classroom, until they get old enough to decide for themselves.
Ahhhhhhhhhh, My heart swells. There's nothing quite like the sounds of boys and girls being taught at publicly funded institutions of learning to sign nationalistic songs in praise of their leader. We need more of this stuff.
Kids say the Pledge of Allegiance in school. Wouldn't that be a nationalistic song? Before you bash me I support the saying of the Pledge of Allegiance. I think it is proper to teach kids to have pride in America and that includes the President, no matter who it is.
