This just in from the Federal Department of Counter-Productivity and Mixed Messages…

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius screened a Cartoon Network anti-bullying video for some middle school students recently. The video instructs kids not to call others names like “stupid,” “fat” and “jerk.”

Sebelius was asked what people should take away from the film and how to respond to bullies. Her response:

“I think, very important, is for kids to understand how powerful you really are. You might feel like you’re not big enough, not strong enough, not–don’t have enough tools. But just saying, ‘Stop it! You know, you’re being a jerk!’–walk away, get away from this person can make a huge amount of difference.”


By the way, the anti-bullying video stars Barack Obama, naturally. I haven’t seen the video yet, but it can’t be completely accurate unless Obama brought along his union thug pals to play the part of the bullies.

    You will be stopping it and we will be turning our backs on you in November.

    The ignorance of these people is staggering and stupefying.

    Some stranger just talking to the untrained human nature (child) will never get the message through, it doesn’t even work with adults. Children are children and NOT adults in little bodies. This vid should be directed at the adult supervision of children not the children.

    Now, even the federal government wants to abdicate what responsibility it has taken upon itself and all of the pressure to put an end to the inevitable “problems of being a kid” is brought to bear on the bullied children to resolve the issue and not the bullies themselves.

    The bullies, their parents, and the adult supervisors need to know and learn there are consequences for the child’s actions and the adult supervisor’s inaction. The parents and adult supervisors these days both seem to think that they have been completely absolved of any part in the raising, teaching and responsibility for the actions of their offspring and/or charges.

    The people in the Obama administration don't have time to figure out how to stop bullying. They're too busy pushing us around.
