INT. CLASSROOM - DAY

A class of THIRTY CHILDREN (all around eight years of age) with the MIDDLE AGED FEMALE TEACHER at the front of the class standing under a TELEVISION that's mounted to the wall.

...............................................................................TEACHER
..............................................................................(to children)
...........................................Okay, we're about to watch the President's speech. Those of
...........................................you with a writen excuse from their parents please exit now,
...........................................and head directly to the cafeteria. 

Seven children get up from their desks and head for the exit. As the last one shuffles out the door TWO MEN IN DARK SUITS WEARING SUNGLASSES enter the classroom.

................................................................................TEACHER
..........................................Now, never mind the men in the dark suits, but focus your attention
..........................................directly to the TV screen for the first ten seconds, because you will
..........................................be quizzed, and there will be prizes. Are you ready?

A majority of the children give an approving nod.

................................................................................TEACHER
.........................................Okay, here we go.

The Teacher presses the POWER button on the TV. Underneath the television, she has her back to the wall, watching the children. 

.............................................................................................................................................................................CUT TO:

CU-TV SCREEN

On the television, President Barack Obama, dressed in suit & tie, is sitting behind his desk in the Oval Office.
................................................................................PRESIDENT
.........................................Greetings, I'm the President of the United States. Welcome 
.........................................back to school. Now, please pay close attention to the television
.........................................set you are currently watching. Like your teacher says, there will
.........................................be prizes involved.

Suddenly, the screen is bombarded with a multitude of images. More than just a montage, these images play, then freeze frame & become part of a split screen. The more images that are shown, the more they are frozen and the split screens become small splinters of thousands of images sharing the same screen.

The overload of subliminal information has rendered the children to a semi-conscious state.

................................................................................PRESIDENT
...........................................Alright, children, you may now lower your heads.

In unison, all the kids lower their heads into the crook of their left arms.

................................................................................PRESIDENT
..........................................Show of hands. How many of you DID NOT have breakfast
...........................................this morning?

Almost half the children raise their right hand. The Teacher busily scribbles on her CLIPBOARD.

................................................................................PRESIDENT
...........................................How many of you normally don't eat breakfast at all?

Most of the hands already up lower back down; still there are a few hands still raised.
The Teacher nods her head disapprovingly as she jots down information. 

...............................................................................PRESIDENT
...........................................How many of you have good grades?

Half the class' hands go up; the kids that had their hands up previously lower them immediately.

..............................................................................PRESIDENT
............................................How many of you want to go to college?

The hands that are up, stay up, and are joined by more raised hands.

..............................................................................PRESIDENT
............................................How many of you think that you are not smart?

The hands that were up all crash to their desks. Six children raise their hands. The Teacher takes notes all the while.

...............................................................................PRESIDENT
..........................................How many of you are told that you are dumb or stupid by
..........................................friends or family members?

More than half the children raise their hands.

...............................................................................PRESIDENT
...........................................How many of you have heard family members call me stupid?

A few of the children lower their hands. The Men in Dark Suits then walk from student-to-student placing a PIECE OF PAPER and a PENCIL on the desk by their resting head.

...............................................................................PRESIDENT
...........................................Okay. Now, children, and this one's for the prize; how many of
...........................................you have heard people call me by the "N word". I would like for
...........................................you to please write down their names.

All at once, the children raise their heads, and with no emotion at all, begin to scribble down names on the piece of paper.

The Teacher approaches the Men in Dark Suits.

.................................................................................SUIT #1
............................................Do you have the list of the opposed?

She gives the man a piece of paper from her clipboard.

.................................................................................TEACHER
.............................................What's going to happen to them?

.................................................................................SUIT #1
.............................................To them? Oh... nothing.

.................................................................................SUIT #2
.............................................Their parents' will, however, most likely be audited by 
.............................................the IRS.

.................................................................................SUIT #1
.............................................Which comes right before their computer contracts a
.............................................supervirus which floods their hard drive with child pornography.

.................................................................................SUIT #2
.............................................Once they're picked up for kiddie porn, we'll then make examples
.............................................of them by putting them into a prototype of our new prison system.

..................................................................................SUIT#1
.............................................Which is a new way of saying concentration camp.

..................................................................................TEACHER
.............................................Dear God.

..................................................................................SUIT #2
.............................................Talk of a god will not be permitted, because one does
.............................................not exist. That's what their children will be taught once
.............................................they become wards of the state.

Suit #1 pulls out what appears to be a SILVER PEN.

..................................................................................SUIT #1
.............................................If you would please look directly into this object.

The object FLASHES.

..................................................................................SUIT #1
.............................................Thank you very much, Mrs. Cavanagh, now could you please
.............................................go & collect the papers the children have written on?

The Teacher's eyes are half-lidded, and she seems not completely conscious.

Suit #2 snaps his fingers. The Teacher literally "snaps" out of it & is now completely coherent.

..................................................................................SUIT #2
..............................................Mrs. Cavanaugh, could you please collect the papers
..............................................from the children?

..................................................................................TEACHER
..............................................Oh, coming right up. 
 ..............................(she turns to collect the papers, but then turns right back around again)
..............................................By the way, what about the kids that didn't see this?

Suit #1 looks to his partner who shrugs his shoulders.

...................................................................................SUIT #1
.......................................................................(shrugging shoulders)
.............................................It's a free country.
