If you, like me, are worried about America's relative levels of greatness given that the whole Trump family excepting Barron has gone overseas, then let me soothe you, because the crack members of the Cabinet are here to save us! Today we are going to hear about how much Betsy DeVos and Ben Carson really understand the plight of the normies, which is what I assume people so wealthy they've gone delusional call the rest of us.
or when some second amendment gun nut is running around in the corridors.
I don't know if it's good or bad that I am starting to hate been Carson because he's a nut-job republican instead of because he's black. That's just a joke. I never hated Ben Carson because he's black. I am far to evolved for that. No, I had no idea he even existed before he ran for President because that's how America treats African Americans. We ignore them until we can't any more. Anyway, progress I guess.
Edit: this wasn't meant as a racist post. more of a commentary on racist America. I apologize if anyone was offended.
The father of my son's baby momma reminds me of the local version of DeVos. A devout Christian of some wingnut flavor, he inherited a successful biz from his dad and has managed to not fuck it up too badly so he thinks he made his own way in life.
Sure, Adolph (not his real name!) you worked in the copy room and made deliveries back in the day - but you lived your dad's mansion at night and ate really fucking good every meal. That you started out at $1.25 an hour, or whatever it was, 45 yrs ago is a moot point because you were still worth more than most will make in their lifetime just from wealth accumulated early to avoid taxes on daddy's demise.
So Betsy and Adolf, park your overinflated egos on the church house steps and conjure up some empathy, motherfuckers.
Oh, Ben Carson is DEFINITELY a plant, just one of the botanical variety, rather than the Russian secret super-spy variety.
Well, they DO care about poor people. I mean, the Soylent Green ain't gonna make itself...
It's funny how Conservatives clutch their pearls endlessly about the "moral danger" of helping people, but never about the moral danger of religion being used as an excuse to not give a shit.
Yes, but in my version, there's no question about him invoking his own name because he is just channeling Leroy Jenkins. In fact, when he bursts into the room and runs straight at Carson he shouts his own name as a battle cry: " JEEEEEEEESUS CHRISTOOOOOOOOS!!"https://www.youtube.com/wat...
That is a whole other conversation and as the son of a career teacher and a career superintendent and a teacher myself with children in public schools I can have that conversation. But that's not what I was replying to.
Well sure, if you're someone who CARES about such things. To conservatives, those things are reserved for the special wealthy snowflakes and is considered a detriment to the massive pool of unskilled labor they require to work in their sweatshops.
That isn't data. Impasse reached. You are not supporting your contention that Democrats are just as bad as Republicans in this regard. I'm done here
I don't just vote I go door-to-door for candidates. I even go door-to-door for the least crazy Republican in Republican primaries because I live in Idaho and we are completely fucked when it comes to National politics.
“too many children today are trapped in schools that don’t work for them. We have to do something different.”
That actually is pretty much the entire argument for vouchers and charters. They cite reams of statistics about how much public (or, as they say, "government") schools serving poor children suck, armed with results from the endless testing they force public schools to do (which takes away from time for the kids to be, you know, actually taught something). That's the justification to "do something different." Never mind what that "something different" might be, or if it makes sense, or if it actually serves everyone's (or anyone's) needs. Just, we need something different, so send tax money to Jimmy Billy Joe Bob's Christian Academy and Bait Shack.
1. "As we are in no wise a Christian nation..." - Treaty of Tripoli, 1797, section 11. 2. In fact, as you exemplify Jeezuz, I DO HATE YOUR JEZUZ, and demand EVERY FUCKING PENNY THAT YOU GIVE TO RELIGIOUS SCHOOLS BACK, WITH INTEREST. (And while we're at it, I want all my tax dollars spent on 'Nam, and the invasion and conquest of Iraq, back, with interest, and I want *all* of it spent on family planing AND ABORTIONS. GOT THAT: I DEMAND THAT MY TAX DOLLARS BE SPENT ON ABORTIONS. (And I don't mean abortions like her....)
Y'know, KM, I was just picturing a cartoon a while ago, which I'm not good enough to draw, of a warehouse, and room with a bunch of drone controllers, and the boss talking to someone who shall only be a silhouette... but is balding, and likes to ride horses barechested, and that person telling the boss here to tell the guy running the most important drone to stop putting it on autopilot, the default programming on the one with the orange face just does *not* work right....
Hang in there and know we'll be waiting for you with love and snark.
Did everyone in the press room back slowly away as if afraid he might be about to be struck by lightning?
A little knowledge is dangerous! :)
