Hero Mom Will Save Her Homeschooled Babies From The Unending Imaginary Terror Of Common Core

News

Do you find yourself worrying about things that really will never happen, like aliens eating your face or "Freaks and Geeks" getting a second season 14 years later? Then perhaps you should consider joining forces with Jenni White, the crusading mom who is worried her homeschooled children will be sullied by the satanic influence of the Common Core standards, which might actually be a thing to worry about except for the fact that homeschooled children do not have to follow educational standards, satanic or otherwise, BUT STILL.


In Oklahoma and elsewhere, home-schooling parents, often with their kids, are a frequent presence at legislative hearings and other political functions representing anti-Common Core forces. Sometimes, as in White's case, they are even leading the opposition.

Home-schooling parents can teach their kids what they choose, but many of these parents still have a big beef with the standards.

We have a beef with lots of things. Leggings worn as pants. Saying "utilize" when you really could just say "use." Rainy days and Mondays. However, if you want to dance around in the goddamn Monday rain utilizing leggings as pants, who the fuck are we to stop you? What earthly reason is there behind being so mad at a thing that will never touch your children's precious ears? (And is also, in the case of the Common Core standards, utterly benign to begin with, but let's not even go there.) Is it because you're terrified of math? (Probably.) Is it because the black Kenyan Muslin pretender supports them? (Most likely!)

Oh. The real reason you're mad is that you want your precious little snowflakes to learn nothing but Jeebus and creationism, but still get into top colleges, basically.

[Emmett McGroarty, director of education at the conservative American Principles Project] said there is a concern that the ACT and the College Board, which owns the SAT, are moving toward aligning with the standards. That, he said, would leave home-schooling parents no choice other than to follow the standards if they want their kids to do well on the college entrance exams.

That is exactly true! Colleges can and should require that children have learned certain things before they matriculate and spend the next four, five, six, whatever years doing keg stands learning biology. If you don't like it, send your kids to Liberty University or Oral Roberts or wherever the fuck will take your kids that don't know how to count but can sing "Jesus loves me" real gooder. That will guarantee your kids never have to learn anything, really. Everybody wins.

It's the night before the two-night Democratic primary debate extravaganza, and we're already tired. Turns out having 20 candidates spread across two nights when only six or eight of them matter is not the must-see TV we all thought it was going to be! But that's not to dissuade you from getting excited! We're excited! We're so excited! We're so ...

SCARED!

In case you need a reminder, here is how it's going to go down:

Lately he's been blowing smoke from another orifice.

After a cursory examination of the TWELVE filings in the case against California Congressman Duncan Hunter just in the past 24 hours, we can confidently declare that that guy is a fucking idiot. The prosecutors have him by every last one of his short and curlies -- which is what happens when you use your campaign credit card to pay for hundreds of thousands of dollars of ski trips, video games, tuition, and plane tickets for the family rabbit.

A rational human being would have pleaded down a year ago and given up his congressional seat, since he could cash out and make a lot more money as a lobbyist anyway. But not Duncan Hunter! He made the federal government chase him down and document every last carton of cigarettes, round of tequila, and Uber ride of shame home from his many girlfriends' houses in a 60-count indictment filed last August. And still this dumb sumbitch refused to admit he was caught, even after his lovely wife (and co-conspirator) Margaret Hunter flipped on him this month -- which is what happens when you use your campaign credit card to carry on multiple affairs and you piss off the US Attorneys enough that they put every 7 a.m. Uber ride in your indictment.
