Die Wacht am Rhein..........

I saw this video posted on a number of sites today, not the least of which was FOX NEWS which asked the question, "Cute or Creepy?"

As soon as the little girl was joined and the chorus raised, I couldn't help but remember this.........

Be extremely careful of what raises your Heart. That's why they call it Propoganda.
A Happy and Safe Rosh Hashana.

*Oh Fatherland.......O Bamaland*

Well, glad to see Obama likes kids once they're big enough to talk.

"Cute or Creepy"?

One vote here for "Creepy".

Seriously, way out, eye bugging, hair standing, finger-nails on a blackboard, creepy.

There's been enough criticism that apparently the Obama folks have pulled that video AD down.

No word yet on how much the kids were paid, IF they were paid, or whether the labor laws were complied with. Those laws are strict. They came about after the Twilight Zone filming disaster - they are designed to protect the kids, make sure they don't work too many hours in a row, make sure they are fed and that there is someone there for them.

The law is very strict - EVEN IF YOU OWN A BUSINESS AND WANT TO USE YOUR OWN KID IN THE FILMING OF A COMMERCIAL you MUST get them a work permit. they must have a doctor's ok. They must be PAID. There must be a studio teacher on set unless one is unavailable - and in the area where this one was shot, there would have been one available. Up where I am there aren't any, or weren't a few years ago. the studio teacher must have, as I recall, both a primary and secondary teaching credential. They are required to be on set throughout - and I think there is a limit to the number of kids, so in this case, there would have to be multiple studio teachers...

The Labor Board guys are VERY hep to enforce this - I sure hope they do it in this case.

That was a very young Michael York. Now I need to go look for the movie.

As that second video progresses, it sounds more and more like "Obama belongs to me".

You'll want to post this, Wollf.

Fire in the Night
The Weathermen tried to kill my family.

Obama’s answer: “The notion that somehow as a consequence of me knowing somebody who engaged in detestable acts 40 years ago, when I was eight years old, somehow reflects on me and my values, doesn’t make much sense, George.” Obama was indeed only eight in early 1970. I was only nine then, the year Ayers’s Weathermen tried to murder me.

It's quite the personal account. Powerful stuff. Dated: 30 April 2008
