Obama Youth: End war, forever. Make the planet greener. Please help my dad find work. Make it rain candy!

Let the indoctrination begin! Is it time to break out the black armbands yet?

In a new book, kids gush their love for President Obama. The "Dear Mr. President" project was a joint effort between the National Education Association and

As Jammie Wearing Fool opines: "Sure sounds like these young skulls full of mush had some help with their letters."

Some highlights of the wishes of Obama's Youth below, but first listen to the Obamamaniacs in training in this video.

End war, forever. Make the planet greener. Please help my dad find work. Make it rain candy!

Thousands of kids detailed their hopes and expectations for President Barack Obama in letters and drawings as part of a worldwide project, with 150 chosen for a free e-book being released on Presidents Day.

"I hope that we will have no war ever again. I mean why are we fighting why can't we all be friends."

"I would appreciate it if you would try to make this a greener planet and try to bring home the troops and end the war," the fifth-grader wrote. "I am very luckey because I am not part of a military family, but it saddens me to hear about all the people who die in Iraque and know that somewhere In the world people are greiving over a lost family member."

"Dear Mr. Obama," the Pasadena, Calif., first-grader began, "Please Make it rain candy!"

The letters were written in January amid Obama-mania at inauguration time as schools scrambled to bus kids to special viewing events and come up with computer screens and TVs for them to watch in classrooms and auditoriums.
Kids ages 5-12 were eligible to participate. Submissions flooded kidthing, including some from other nations.

"My dad's out of work, fix the company, please get more jobs,' Hitchcock said.

"There were Latino kids saying, `Please change the immigration laws so my dad can come back from Mexico.' This is a profound snapshot of a social narrative of young kids during an important moment in history. It really kind of stunned us what came in through the front door."

"I hope Mr. Barack Obama will one day create a holiday for children from around the world" she wrote.

"I feel very proud because I know he'll be able to make a change in the country and we'll be a lot more happier," Destiny said. "I think he should make people feel more welcome, people who don't really get along with other people."

Aaron's wish is a little more specific. If Obama makes candy drop from the sky, he's hoping for his favorite: candy canes! And if the president showed up at his school, he'd have these requests:

"Make fires and earthquakes not exist. Make no tornadoes or any of those things that break things."

An 11-year-old boy from Ohio drew himself in tears at the side of a relative. His dream, he wrote, is that a "cure for cancer will be found" with Obama in the White House, "Because it took my aunt to a better place on father's day."

Another child drew Obama as the "new sunrise of America." One made Earth and labeled it "Obamaland," and still another created the president's face as half dark and half light skin tones with the words: "United We Are One."

Sasha's drawing is an all-green globe. Her enthusiasm for Obama and his ability to get the job done speaks volumes: "I just think he's really, really awesome."


I don't know who is going to be more disappointed -- these innocent kids or the parents who are brainwashing them?

Anyone tell these kids that they will be the ones paying off the CRAPulus Generational Theft Act?

These quotes are scary! And here I feared I was being a little to freakishly conspiracy theorist-esque lately about Obama and Totalitarianism.

Maybe we're not being critical enough!
