    Even Michelle is afraid her kids might figure them out.

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100414/...obama_facebook

    Mrs. Obama said she and the president talk with their daughters about the dangers of Facebook, and "that sort of gossip mill."

    What is she afraid of? Her children might just find out the truth?

    "First lady Michelle Obama says Facebook and other social media sites are a generational divide in raising her children."

    OK, so far they are a normal family

    " . . . she and President Barack Obama limit the use of computers for their daughters, Sasha and Malia, and ask the girls a lot of questions when they're on line."

    All parents should do that.

    "Mrs. Obama said she and the president talk with their daughters about the dangers of Facebook, and "that sort of gossip mill. The first lady says that more schools are helpful in educating parents as well as children on the pros, cons and dangers of the Internet."

    Kids should know that ANYBODY can post ANYTHING on the internet whether it's true or not.


    "Mrs. Obama tells that when she was growing up, the Internet didn't exist. She called her friends on the phone."

    So? That applies to everybody over 30

    It's a mechanical device, designed by humans, built by humans and operated by humans. What could possibly go wrong?

    Step away from ARP forum and get some real news. Haven't you heard about kids committing suicide because of internet bullies?

    This is real news, the other stuff is a leftist plot. But it is good that Michelle protect her kids from internet bullies, and the real truth about her hubby.

    These girls are now old enough to understand socialism and communism, and how one is just a step along the path to get to the other.

    Surely, someone is going to explain the truth of these things, for example: say Sasha works hard and gets good grades, earning her a better likelihood of getting into a better school later, and earning a better income. But wait, not everyone in her class is working hard and earning good grades, so the teacher decides that Sasha's grades should be lowered by the school, so that other children who aren't working as hard and achieving as much can have their grades artificially raised.

    How would she like that?

    Every time this is explained in a classroom, no one wants to see such a program implemented.

    This will dawn on Sasha, just like it did on Chelsea. Unfortunately, these girls see themselves as being so elevated above the lives of more typical children, they believe they are immune from such social programs.

    It is, however, a very good way to explain how this redistribution idea works.

    I doubt that the Obama kids will see any of their father's impact on normal society. They will have all the perks that a dictator's children have!

    Back in the glory days in the U.S.S.R, only one percent of its population actually belonged to the Communist Party. All the rest were simply the proletariat and had to go by what the one percent wanted. Class dismissed.
