Only thing it proves to me is that the teabaggers continue to show that they are mentally challenged.

Where did this idea originate? One of my Wife’s friends is married to a a guy who listens to Rush and company like it is a religion, and repeated this idea charter schools are for failing students.

It seems like these people see charter schools as a threat to getting vouchers to go to private schools where they can learn creationism or something. Charter schools are popping up everywhere, and parents are flocking to them.

Yeah, this is all very confusing. I thought charter schools were supposed to be the Bomb for the free market and AFP set noted in the article. But I guess charter schools are now just so very RINO.

re: #5 Bulworth


I think the gig is up and it was all about getting vouchers for private schools as a way to continue racial segregation of schools.

Can we stop the pretense that the GOP is not the Dixie-crat party of old?

Is that a typo, and did he really mean to say that they are for families who are “ethically Challenged” or is it that Norm Hughes is too stupid even to make a good racist?

I thought I was the “ethnically challenged” one, being all lily white and not “ethnic”?
I’m confused. //

Ethnically challenged? Fuck you very much fuck face.

Wouldn’t bland white people be the ethnically challenged ones?

My white and middle class kids have all attended Summit Academy in Romulus MI. The oldest graduated this past December from college #1 in his class in Electrical Engineering. The daughter is in HS still. There is no clear racial majority in the school, it is one of only a few diverse HS’s in the extremely polarized Metro Detroit area. Our experience there has been awesome. The two oldest received free rides to college based on grades and test scores. Some people we know have asked us why we would put our kids in a school with so many minorities. well, um the world is like that, why shouldn’t their school? These would be the people who shell out many thousands to send their kids to the good Catholic HS’s in the area to keep them safe. Except the drugs are rampant in the good Catholic schools. Rich kids tend to have more disposable income ..

The Louisiana House voted 66-27 on Tuesday to keep the state's unconstitutional sodomy ban under Louisiana's crimes against nature law. The Supreme Court's 2003 Lawrence v. Texas decision invalidated all state bans on gay sex, declaring them unconstitutional. But Louisiana, along with several other states, has refused to strike the provision from state law. On Tuesday, the House rejected a bill, sponsored by ...

There were rumors Puig was smuggled out of Cuba by members of a Mexican drug cartel. There were rumors he still owed the smugglers money, and ...

New York Electoral College: State Joins National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.
Ben Mathis-Lilley, Slate: New York Electoral College: State Joins National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. Instead of pushing for a Constitutional amendment, which would have to be ratified in 38 states, advocates ask individual state legislatures to pass an agreement: that they'll pledge all their presidential electors to the winner of the national popular vote as soon as enough other states pass the law to ...

These 5 Countries Are Crushing the Whole Gender Equality Thing at Home
When looking at this data, it's important to remember that gender equality isn't just about women working more paid hours or doing less housework. It's also about men cutting back their work hours to pitch in more around the house. Countries that have lighter workweeks, in fact, tend to have a more equal distribution between men and women in the home. The OECD ...

The Insane History of Rockets at Jet Propulsion Laboratories
The Rocket Boys In the late 1930s, a group of Caltech graduate students were booted off campus after blowing up (part of!) their building during a rocket test gone awry. Unwilling to give up on the joy of semi-controlled explosions, the students and a few of their friends headed into the San Gabriel Mountains. They picked a deserted gully -- Arroyo Seco -- ...

Drop out of school before your mind rots from exposure to our mundane educational system. Forget about the Senior Prom and go to the library and *educate yourself* if you've got any guts. Some of you like *pep rallies* and plastic robots who tell you what to read. Forget I mentioned it. *This song has no message.* Rise for the flag salute. -- Liner notes for "Hungry Freaks, Daddy" on "Freak Out!"
