The President & Children

Honestly, is it anything but racism that American parents don’t want their kids to listen to the president? Sorry, but I find it wholly idiotic. Here’s the full text of the speech, if you won’t be able to listen tomorrow. He says nutty, controversial things like this:

But at the end of the day, we can have the most dedicated teachers, the most supportive parents, and the best schools in the world – and none of it will matter unless all of you fulfill your responsibilities. Unless you show up to those schools; pay attention to those teachers; listen to your parents, grandparents and other adults; and put in the hard work it takes to succeed.

And that’s what I want to focus on today: the responsibility each of you has for your education. I want to start with the responsibility you have to yourself.

Every single one of you has something you’re good at. Every single one of you has something to offer. And you have a responsibility to yourself to discover what that is. That’s the opportunity an education can provide.

This country is starting to get way too insane for me, with people objecting to the President telling kids to study hard.
