Elementary School Changes Its Name To Barack Obama's

Elementary School Changes Its Name To Barack Obama's

Ever since Barack Obama won the general campaign students at the school formally known as Ludlum Elementary School have been campaigning to name the school after the 44th President. After convincing the school board only weeks after the election, the school held its own little inauguration yesterday, becoming the first to adopt Barack Obama's name.

At the name-changing ceremony students wore sweatshirts with the new name and the logo "Yes We Can." As you might guess, the young students are civic-minded — during the campaign they held mock debates and followed both candidates closely.

Schools named after George W. Bush popped up before he made it back to retire in Texas. Would you want your kid, or any kids, to attend a school named after Barack Obama?

tiabia. I am just being honest. I cant stand the man and wouldnt want my kids wearing t shirts, or seeing letterhead with his name on it. Its a personal preference, and its not ridiculous in my eyes. I wouldnt want my kids going to Al Gore elementary, or John Kerry elementary or Ted Kennedy elementary either....maybe thats wierd but hey, I am wierd and illogical. I wouldn't use the term weird. More like obnoxious and immature.

Other than thebuildings that Ted owns, what else has been named after him? The Rockefellers deserve to have things named after them, especially with all the money they gave to charities.

I would not send my child to Barack Obama elementary. It's absolutely ridiculous! People have fallen in love with this man and he's not even done anything yet, except try to appoint corrupt people to his cabinet. I think this country is in for a major wake up call.

Considering all the things named after the Rockefellers and Ted Turner, one could do much worse than the Barack Obama school.

I don't really care either way, but it does seem a bit early, like he should be dead first or at least out of office for a few years.

Thank you ladies! I am excited. Just not looking forward to the healing time afterward. I like to jump back into the world after birth. I will have to wait longer this time. But that will just be more cuddle time with my kiddos. That's my glass is half full approach!

Good luck with the C section. I've heard it is a piece of cake. You must be so excited.

I'm also glad to see GS commenting again! Good luck on the 26th.

He decided to be in a non-turnable breech position so we are having a c-section on the 26th. Getting so darn close! I'm not scared about the surgery, just bummed I can't do it the old fashioned way. I loved that moment with my daughter. This time I will be strapped down and immobile. But at least the Dude will be able to hold him and love on him until they sew me up. Thank you for thinking about me!

:wave: Anytime GS. Since we are already off topic, I hadn't seen you comment for so long I thought you were on maternity leave! :baby: The time must be rapidly approaching, right?

That's a great story. Thanks Kast.

Ladies please let me take this opportunity to draw your attention to this story. http://www.abcnews.go.com/WN/story?id=6813728&page=1 You may now get on with your regularly scheduled mud slinging and off topic arguments. Thank you.

Those are the two I know Steph. It is their entire region. I don't see how someone who describes herself as a liberal and has such undying sympathy for terrorists and prisoners rights, has so little caring for the common every day person. I suppose it just isn't trendy.

Two families are being cared for by neighbors after a brief but severe snow storm. What situation demands outrage and charity?
Great-Sommelier Great-Sommelier 8 years
I haven't demanded any help for them. I've asked where the outcry is, from anyone. The usual outcriers. Valid question that many are asking. Why some people are worthy of outrage and charity more than others.

I thought Conservatives were against government charity and wanted everything left to private organizations like churches? I'm so confused!
