When I’m President

When I get voted in as President of the United States, there are several things that I’m going to do right away. I mean, the minute I recover from all those silly parties, I’m getting busy on the following:

  • I will start with making weekends 3 days.  No more of these 2 day weekends.
  • I’m going to eliminate hunger and poverty in the United States.
  • If we’re still at war in Iraq, well, we’re going to get the hell out of there.
  • And then, after I do all that, I’m going to speak to your kids at their schools.

Yup.  That’s right.  I’m going to fill their minds with horrible thoughts about working hard, staying in school and dreaming big.   I’m going to tell them that even if they feel like they can’t succeed because of bad circumstances, that they can.  I’m going to tell them that they can become doctors, lawyers, teachers or whatever they set their minds to.  I’m going to encourage them to stay in school through 12th grade, go to college, and then if they want to, they can go to medical or graduate school.  I’ll let them know that even if they can’t speak English or if they are foster children and live in less than desirable circumstances, the possibilities are still endless.

Oh, I’m going to tell them to work hard.  I’m going to let them know it’s ok to not love, or even like, all of their teachers, because there will be teachers out there that will inspire them to be their greatest.  It’s ok not to love every subject, but they should do their best in those they don’t love, and excel in those that they do love.  Let kids of all ages know that they should look for a role model, someone to inspire them, someone to challenge them.

And then, I’m going to tell them to believe in themselves.  Let them know that they can do whatever they set their minds to.  But the most important thing they can do, is get an education.

Oh?  What’s that you say?  President Obama has already said all that?  Well shame on him.  Wait wait.  Reagan, Bush 1, Clinton and Bush 2 already said all those things?  How can that be?  What kind of communist country is this?  You mean to tell me that our Presidents are trying to inspire our children?  Our leaders want our kids to get an education?  I can hardly stand it!    What kind of people are these men?

It’s a good thing that people aren’t up in arms over a little speech.  I would find it hard to believe that people would keep their kids home from school because someone is telling them to get an education.  Or, that a school would say, “The Presidents speech about education isn’t worthy of making our students sit through.  Why would we want them to hear a speech about school while they’re in school?”  I’m glad that people are ok with our kids being encouraged to stay in school.  I’d hate for our kids to think that their parents or educators would want them to miss out on a learning opportunity from the President of the United States.
