I think Obama's educational plan is brilliant and should be implemented in all 57 states.

You started wrong: "I think" should not even be in your vocabulary. "I've been brainwashed into believing that's it's brilliant. By the way, there are 50 states.

We should take a page out of Alinsky's playbook and mock this misleader the way his followers mock Bush. Make the man seem as small as he actually is, like the guy behind the curtain in 'The Wizard of Oz'. Not even the mantle of President should keep him from ridicule, ridiculous as he is. Disrespect for him, his mentors, his friends, his thuggish appointees and all that he drags with him is respect for our Constitution and what this Country stands for. The Emperor has no clothes.

Ask any college freshman what he knows about communism and he will likely engage in a word association game.

“The red scare, McCarthyism,” he will blurt out, displaying lessons well-learned from his textbooks and teachers.

One way to go beyond the idea of communism as evidence of paranoia, though, is to recall George Orwell’s Animal Farm. “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others” will be the phrase students recall. Students seem to get that “from each according to his ability, to each according to his needs” never works out in reality from this fictional work.
