M/Obama - quoted in the New York Times March 19, 2009, ostensibly in reference to her vegetable garden:
“My hope is that through children, they will begin to educate their families and that will, in turn, begin to educate our communities.”
That's always given me the creeps, as I feared at the time this philosophy would be applied beyond the garden. Recent news seems to affirm my fear:
President Obama would have the government raise your children by nationalizing government education from birth through adulthood. His new preschool education plan is set to accommodate every preschool child in the nation, not only the needy.
