So who are these parents who claim to be deeply concerned about what the President of the United States might have to say to their children in his start-of-school motivational speech to the nation’s students? Are these parents as deeply concerned about the lyrics of the songs their children are listening to on their ipods? The websites they’re visiting on their computers? The video games they’re playing? The TV shows they’re watching? The alcohol and drugs they’re experimenting with? The unprotected sex and unwanted babies they’re having? What happens to the unmotivated children when they fall behind in their schoolwork and eventually drop out of school? What then? Well, at that time, these parents can always blame the President of the United States for allowing them to spare the rod and spoil the child.
