Texas! Motto: Smart Peepel R Dum

As card carrying members of the educorporate complex here in Michigan we would just like to say that we are claiming dibs on the 700 million in federal aid to education that governor Rick Perry of Texas doesn't want.

And not just because we're looking for a raise either. This is all about the kids, yes sir you betcha.
Texas will not compete for up to $700 million in federal education money, Gov. Rick Perry said, calling the Obama administration’s main school improvement grant program an unacceptable intrusion on states’ control over education.
Couldn't have said it better ourselves governor. After all, who needs some east coat latte' drinking liberal elitist telling you to teach stuff in schools? Schools are where the little heathens learn to do what adults tell them to do. Besides, Texas does just fine on its own thankyewverymuch. After all, you're reevaluating your whole school curriculum to bring it into the 21st century right? Lets look at some of the highlights:

Evolution might sort of kind of exist, maybe
.

Cesar Chavez and Thurgood Marshall were communists.

Thomas Jefferson copied the Constitution out of the bible.

OK, we made that last one up, but it's pretty close to the truth, right Derek Davis, director of the Center for Religious Liberty at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor?
"An education without some understanding of the profound role of religion in our nation's history and its contributions to our nation's success is an incomplete education and our courts have often said as much."
Oh tell it Brother Davis. Speak truth to the power. Plus, it's kind of hard to explain what we did to the land, the Native Americans and the slaves unless god gets in there someplace and gives his official okie dokie.

See? So Texas is doing just fine by itself thank you Mr. Barack Hussein Obama smarty pants college graduate. We got our very own graduates right here in Texas too. Did you know that?

OK so Texas is 49th lowest out of 50 states and the District of Columbia, but right after we get everybody all learned up that Adam and Eve rode dinosaurs over to Noah's house to help George Washington plan the civil war against Santa Ana you better watch out!

When you have 100,000 kids that don't read at grade level and the President of the Houston Teacher's Federation opposes a national test for students, TEXAS, with all its "push and shove" is merely the dumb bully.
When even Gov. Perry deems it unacceptable for smart and accomplished people like President Obama to "intrude" in education, we are obviously not talking education at all.
What we are talking about is sheer manipulation of corrupt power and in the Republican "Government" to keep a racist state, racist and an impoverished class, down.
That, in TEXAS (and ALASKA) is called "progress".
Politicians maintain their criminality in all their abuses of human rights and they glorify it all through their warped ideas and speeches on "God".
This is simply called, destroying America, and in one fell swoop. Hopefully, past Republicans will continue their fight.

Scary.

Just fucking scary.

If Texas approves the use of Creationist bullshit for text books, because their orders are so big, they could essentially open the door for other Red States to buy these books and for cheaper than actual educational material as opposed to religious based black propaganda.

Fucking Scary.
