Dear Kansas: just last week your Supreme Court did a good thing and told your terrible legislature that they needed to actually spend some coin on poor schoolchildren because of how it was unconstitutional not to, but your legislators responded by explaining that they probably weren't going to do that, because freedom. Your legislators are also the sadistic weirdos who want to make it
That&#039;s it, Kansas. No more nice things for you!
No, seriously, this is some new game called &quot;Saudi Arabia or Fake,&quot; right?
No gas in the science lab.
It&#039;s harmful to min<strike>o</strike>ers

Yes -- we can see that Kansas is chock full of &quot;reasonable&quot; people. Like, for example, <a href="http:\/\/www.rightwingwatch.org\/content\/afa-wants-toni-morrisons-pornography-censored-common-core" target="_blank">your own fucking organization</a>, you asshole.
This is going to put a crimp in Valentine&#039;s Day with naked, flying children brandishing stringed weapons.
Or, in the case of NYC public schools, to make room for private charter schools, backed by hedge-fund investors, that pay no rent. Thanks, Ex-Mayor Bloomberg!
Is there some outbreak of teachers handing out pornogoraphy? And why didn&#039;t I have any of those teachers when I was in high school?
I don&#039;t see why not; he lacks &ldquo;serious literary, scientific, educational, artistic or political value for minors&quot;--or majors, or even undeclared, those lazy pothead soon-to-be-business majors.
O what brave new world...that has such <i>putzes</i> in it.
Now will I be arrested for that, you retrograde twits in Topeka?
