Home-Schooled Children's Musical Video on Drones and Obama's Hit List!

My friend and her home-schooled children made this awesome video as an educational project! I know my fellow DPers will LOVE it! Please comment and share it all over Facebook if you enjoy it! Make sure to read the description on the YouTube page as it is jam packed with informative links about the US drone program.

You won't find this taught in our public schools! Enjoy!

The Obamikado - I've Got a Little List

http://youtu.be/1b_gmO7AJS4

Here are the lyrics:

As someday it may happen that a conflict we must start,
I've got a little list! I've got a little list!
Of America's detractors who might well be blown apart
and who'll certainly be miffed! They'll certainly be miffed!
There's the oil owning foreigners whose skin is rather brown.
I push a button then a drone will blow up half their town.
All victims who are blown up too - 'accomplices' we'll call.
No innocents - just terrorists - we'll classify them all.
But wait - the army's offensives to congress I must tell...
but not the CIA's - the drones will fit there swell!

If the Army flies the drones, then congress he must sway
so he'll hide the program deep - deep inside the CIA

There's the radical inciter, and the others of great faith,
and the Pro-Life activist - I've got him on the list!
The whistleblower Wikileaking into cyberspace.
He can't escape my fist - I've got him on the list.
The idiot who raises some objection to my plan
"The constitution guarantees due process" he'll demand
"without a trial or a judge to keep the rule of law
you cannot act as jury judge and executioner!"
I'm sad to say but, little man, your theory isn't true
due process is just this - a process that I do!

And now you're on the list! And now you're on the list!
'Cause the process that he does - that is what due process is!

And that noncompliant nuisance who is just a waste of space
the nosey journalist! I've got him on the list!
And the bitter people clinging to their guns and to their faith.
They never would be missed - our drones just do not miss.
Those who approve my killing move on foreigners alone
will see the state expatriate then hit them with a drone.
And in the end it doesn't matter what they think is true
the drones can kill you both abroad and in the homeland too.
For a nation who gives up their rights and has a monarchist
may well be on the list - you're all there on the list!

He has put us on the list! He has put us on the list!
For the tyranny we bought, will rule with an iron fist!

It is absolutely amazing how talented the parent is; thank god he and his wife are teaching their children to teach themselves, and participate in a creative outlet, against the evils of the world.

A BRILLIANT teaching method.

God, I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO proud of them!!!

You saw what can happen when 'we' have children. Now, go make MORE liberty babies, y'all!!!

The world needs more of us, and our progeny: the brilliant, the creative, but most important of us, the r-3VOL-ing kind.o)

It IS a shame that children should have to know about how horrible the world/this nation is, but many children in other parts of the world have dealt with these horrors. Sad as it is that children have to be taught these things, better to be prepared and be able to stand up for what is right.

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Awesome. Well done, from the

Well done, from the lyrics to the props.

Hope Obama watches.

I love this!

It's a shame that Establishment Republicans will agree with it but still won't like it.

I sometimes cannot stand just how utterly, massively, insanely

a creative bunch we are!!!

That was AWESOME!

FrontPage, please!

I was ballin' on the floor!!!

oh great, now I'm gonna have "I've got him on the list!" stuck in my head, all weekend!

while I expected it and fits the narrative of the story, but still, didn't like seeing Doc's name on the Mad Hatter's hat.o(

lol. oy veh aren't we being touchy. lol.

god, it'd make a HILARIOUS high school play/political commentary short, too! if not Broadway! (yeah... Bloomberg NYC's rather kiss-ass liberal political environment rampant in the Broadway profession permitting that is)

the lyrics are AWESOME!!!

"Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it's realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy." - Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul

I'm sorry. Great lyrics, but

imo this is not appropriate for children. In fact, short of it being a project of high school students, I think it's a bit sick. Forgive me, but I'm disgusted with the proselytizing, often negative proselytizing (such as re our dying planet), to children in public schools - which happens to be in line with progressive views but is inappropriate regardless. Ironically, public schools pride themselves on "developmentally-appropriate curriculum." But they define "developmentally-appropriate" based on what children are able to do rather than based on children's needs at each age/stage. Furthermore, they look at only intellectual development rather than the whole child. From the sounds of the children's voices, those are fairly young children. Among other needs at that stage is a sense of security. It helps children to develop a sense of security through learning about all that is good and beautiful in the world - things taught from a positive perspective. Secondary school is soon enough for "issues." Maybe others have a different opinion, but that's mine.

So you think it's not

So you think it's not appropriate to teach children the truth? You think we should lie to them instead and why are you rambling on about the public school system? I'm not trying to be rude but these children are home schooled and your comment didn't make sence.

To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.

I think teachers and parents should use discretion

in HOW they explain the truth to children - which might be quite different depending on a child's age, maturity, and frame of reference. I believe that sometimes with young children the best answer might not be a direct answer but a metaphor. I don't see that as lying. I guess I was rambling on about the public school system because it sounded to me as if those children were very young, and that's what I was reacting to; I saw enough of it in the public school system - young children being presented with horrible images; if in that case primarily related to environmental protection - acid rain, carbon monoxide emissions from cars, endangered species, the dying rain forest, whales getting caught in fisherman's nets... All of it is "true." That's not to say it's appropriate to present young, impressionable children with such a bleak and hopeless image of their world. That was my opinion, that the subject of hit lists would be inappropriate if the children were young. As it turned out, they're not.

You were raised in a world

You were raised in a world where a person is given very little control over their own Life until they have gone through about 20 years of memorizing mostly random facts in school. If let be, humans mature much faster. Add to that wise caring parents... voila.

balogna!

my children are very well adjusted bc i tell them the truth. noone will ever be able to sell them a load of lies!

With one exception the kids who created this film are middle schoolers who see through BS. In middle school/the teen years what kids need is to not have people gloss over the things they actually see going on around them.

One of the things that our society has done is dumbed-down childhood to the point where we assume that a 14 year old is incapable of doing anything except texting in broken English. History has shown us that teenagers are capable of doing marvelous things. Let's move away from the idea that teens are so fragile that they can't express themselves in an intellectual capacity regarding the real world.

I think the public school system has it backwards

It treats young children as if they were adults and then dumbs down curriculum in secondary school, treating students as if they were young children. Teaching professionals don't seem to understand that all aspects of development are interconnected. So you now have children who should be playing and engaged in activity instead sitting at desks learning to read; while in high school teachers are expected to dumb down their speech because students have such poor vocabulary skills.

It's reflected in teacher presentation and also, these days, secondary-level textbooks, which have everything reduced to "bits" of easily-digestible information (followed by repetition and review); it's considered "too hard" for children to actually follow a train of thought beyond a couple of short sentences. All of which only helps to foster a shorter attention span. What's taught in college these days used to be high school material.

My issue had only to do with what was developmentally appropriate. To go by their voices, the children appeared to be very young - young elementary schoolers. And were that the case, I'd consider it inappropriate for them to even be aware of what a "hit list" was, let alone to believe that the president of their country had such a list. Had this post indicated the children's ages, I wouldn't have left the comment I did.

In general, I think we need to let children be children, unburdened by issues that are the responsibility of adults... adolescence is soon enough for them to be introduced to disturbing issues reflected in the real world. I don't, at all, underestimate the capabilities of teenagers. I think it's pathetic that our public schools have such low expectations of today's teens. But it STARTS with misguided elementary school curriculum.

I have no respect for the public school system - and especially K-6. Whoever the parents are, I give them credit for choosing to home school.

sir, I find it 'sickening' that R3VOLutionaries' children are

as smart, if not SMARTER than most 'grown'-adults in this country!

just like their r3VOL adult counterparts! lol.

oh no... more smart kids in the world.o)

great job!

hey, that's always been my contention; whether children understand Shakespeare or not, the sponge that they are, they'll absorb it all, retain it all, but simply make sense of it later. So in those very short utterly impressionable years, why WOULD I shove Sesame Street 'toddler-talk' nonsense, when I can read Shakespeare to them, then they teach themselves how to read more advanced stuff, quicker and more exponentially?

One of the things that our society has done is dumbed-down childhood to the point where we assume that a 14 year old is incapable of doing anything except texting in broken English. History has shown us that teenagers are capable of doing marvelous things. Let's move away from the idea that teens are so fragile that they can't express themselves in an intellectual capacity regarding the real world.

I'm 100% with you on that.

Children are brilliant, and hold potential for so much more than the social engineers intend to suppress.

The balance would be the physical and mental fatigue, but that comes with just observing them closely in their physiological response to introduction and immersion of massive info, and respecting them enough to moderate the flow.

I so hope to God the children's publisher Scholastic, in its current content form would be a thing of the past, in the not too distant future. Hell, adults would benefit more from reading the classics.

I can understand your point, but...

I can understand your point, but the ideas of government, due process, justice and crime is something I feel is appropriate for some children. I've met these children personally, and they are very bright and capable, and not as young as you think. I'll have to confirm their exact ages.

Do you at least concede that most often children are believed to be incapable of learning complex subjects, but in reality, children are really capable of learning math, science, and more complex topics at earlier stages in life rather than learning about Santa Clause and Mickey Mouse make believe stuff as society has convinced us is the correct subject matter for kids?

Had you not replied so quickly I'd have

edited what I wrote so as not to sound so harsh. It was a gut reaction, and I'm sorry. This happened to hit a raw nerve. What public schools are doing to young children - so much left-wing proselytizing!!! - is not right. But I have conservative friends who counter this by pumping children with opinions reflecting the political right - no less inappropriate for the children's ages. The children in the video, whose voices were beautiful, sounded very young to me. That's what I was reacting to.

As to the ideas of government, justice, and so on, I agree it is appropriate for children to learn these. Indeed, the concept of justice seems to come quite naturally: "That's not fair!" (P.S. Fairy tales are an excellent way to present the concept - so long as they're not the politically-correct sanitized versions.) It just all depends on the age of the child, the information presented, and how it's presented. I maintain that it is in children's best interest for curriculum at the elementary level (K-6) to be presented from a positive perspective - stories that reflect what's good about their world and the highest qualities in humanity (not the worst).

As to your question, I guess we have different philosophies of education. Yes, I do believe that children are "capable" of learning certain complex topics when they are young. That was my point. I believe curriculum should be based on children's needs at each age level (developmental stage), not necessarily what they are capable of doing. For instance, children CAN be taught to read early. But they don't need to be reading early. What they NEED when they are little is primarily what helps their physical development: ACTIVITY! That's not to say that they don't also need rest and quiet time.

But much IS "learned" in so-called non-academic kindergarten programs that focus on creative free play (indoors and OUTDOORS in all but a thunderstorm) and storytelling, as well as time for singing; circle time activities; seasonal crafts; and helping the teacher/parent around the classroom/house. There is too much to mention here, but just to name a few (in addition to the development of large and small motor skills): creativity is developed when children use their imaginations - such as with free play and also having stories told aloud; free play also helps children to develop social skills and communication skills and resourcefulness; vocabulary is developed, and an appreciation for language, through hearing stories and poems; an appreciation for nature (science) is developed when children experience it for themselves.

Unlike the public school system, focused on only intellectual development, my views are predicated on a holistic view of child development, i.e., children's physical, emotional, and intellectual development. While all three are present, the priority would gradually shift as children matured. I believe the emphasis on intellectual development is appropriate once children reach adolescence; in public school, it's the focus from Day One.

And I'm all for allowing young children to live in the realm of fantasy vs. explaining things to them in realistic ways that are not within their frame of reference to understand. Plus it's fun. But good luck trying to find much in the way of fantasy in schools THESE days. It's all about in-your-face realism. I just have one question. I don't know why raised the issue of Santa Claus! You don't believe in Santa Claus?

I thank you for your reply. There are different schools of thought.
