Psycho. Psycho. Psycho | September 3, 2009

People really — in real. Fucking. Life. — believe President Obama is a socialist. Their reasoning? They don’t have any. (If they did, they’d have to admit Eisenhower, Kennedy, Nixon, etc. were socialists.)

From Ed.gov:

The president will challenge students to work hard, set educational goals, and take responsibility for their learning.

President Obama is telling school children to work hard, help each other (communism), set goals, and take responsibility for their actions. If our nation’s public school students are encouraged to do well, perhaps — just perhaps — public education might get better.

But the “us vs. them” conservatives can’t have that.

They need things the government helps out in to do poorly. They need the people the government helps to fail. They need President Obama, and America by extension, to fail. Then, not only can they say “See, government doesn’t work,” but they can blame the president and get another bumbling Bible literalist in office.

Can you imagine what it must be like to grow up the child of someone who keeps their kids home from school because the president they disagree with (because of internet rumors) plans on encouraging their kids to do well?

That’s why educations sucks in the most religious, red states. That’s why all the blue state money gets filtered to their broke asses — yet, they’re the ones against taxation. Good luck, pals.
