November 2, 2010 (FPRC) -- A recent national poll found that a whopping 82 percent of Americans believe that members of Congress act more like children than sensible adults in the performance of their duties. So how can constituents effectively communicate with a government run by preschoolers? One Las Vegas woman thinks she has the answer: Speak to and treat politicians as children, including teaching Congress the fundamentals of government using an animated cartoon character called The Wob.
“I created The Wob to teach children the fundamentals of reading, writing, arithmetic, government and generally accepted societal mores so they can grow up to become responsible citizens,” said Rozz Goly, CEO and president of Las Vegas-based www.thewob.com. “But now I see that there is also a need to educate our elected officials in basic civics, government and ethics. And The Wob is just the way to do that.”
The Wob, Goly says, was created to teach children how to get along with each other regardless of their differing opinions and/or personal likes and dislikes. Sharing, being open-minded to others’ viewpoints and a willingness to compromise are the foundation of Goly’s pre-school curriculum; a program she thinks Congress needs to go back and relearn, or, “learn for the first time,” Goly proffered.
Goly has produced a State of the WOB Address in which The WOB instructs Congress on the issues of getting along with each other and working together; a message her character is taking to local and national media.
“The WOB will be making personal appearances, in full costume, at various venues across the country including on national TV news and talk shows,” said Goly. “The kids and their parents love the WOB and what he has to say about America’s politicians getting back to basics.”
