MSNBC’s Norah O’Donnell Aggressively Defends Video of Kids Singing to Obama

MSNBC’s Norah O’Donnell Aggressively Defends Video of Kids Singing to Obama: "

MSNBC’s Norah O’Donnell on Thursday appeared mystified as to why anyone would have a problem with New Jersey school children being led in a song praising Barack Obama. The February 2009 video contained these lyrics: "He said we must be fair today! Equal work means equal pay! Barack Hussein Obama! He said, red yellow, black or white, all are equal in his sight! Barack Hussein Obama!"

It might not be something that has evil intention, or a step for government mind control - BUT I am concerned about what appears to be the politicization of education. I wouldn't want my kids singing songs about President Bush and how he wanted us to all stand for freedom. While saying that President Obama views all people as equal isn't a bad thing to say in itself, in this context it carries the implication that others don't, an implication against former presidents and other political leaders.

Latin America breaks ranks in US war on drugs

Latin America breaks ranks in US war on drugs:

"Many countries in the region - most recently Mexico - have decriminalized small amounts of drugs for personal use. The moves have followed decisions by left-leaning governments to limit cooperation with the US in recent years."

Maybe because the "war" on drugs has been a failure, mainly because it has become a war on drug users. That would be a war on our own friends, family and neighbors. I don't use drugs, I don't support drug use - but I think it is time to rethink our laws and how they are enforced.
