He looks at Missouri’s crazy evolution bill, and two proposals from Kansas – one to let people discriminate against gays, and the second to let parents hit their kids harder.

    Virginia Fox of N. Carolina believes that denying kids school lunches will make hunger drive them to get gainfully employed at McDonalds. I guess if you beat them too, it would be a two-fer for the teapots.

    In a way I wouldn’t mind more people home-schooling, so long as in doing so they waive any privilege to complain about what’s being taught in public schools. If they really think their little Timmy needs no further preparation for life than being drilled in a careful selection of passages from their Promise Keepers Bible then let ‘em do it, and leave the rest of us alone.

    There is nothing that is taught in public schools that is in the Bible. English, math,science, world history, computer classes and others.

  • Monophylos Fortikos

    Someone makes the obvious point. I’ve never liked the whole “I’m more evolved!” shtick anyway.

    Actually, religious nuts breed a lot

  • TheOriginalLiz

    As long as the parents keep unsecured guns around the house so that when the kids get fed up, they can go for a “second amendment solution” to the situation.

    Well, they’re getting to the age where scooters and lap band surgery can’t save them. The suicidal mentality is taking its toll. These are the people who like anti-gay Chik Fil A, Paula Deen, and McDonalds. Maybe Chris Christie can tell you about that.

    I know this is horrible, but maybe it’s just natural selection…the people that want it to be okay to beat their families won’t pass on their genes…kind of like religious people starting their holy wars. These people actually agree with the Muslim “eye for an eye” style of justice. They don’t even care that it can be misused. All religion is the same really, trying to “solve” things with intolerance rather than critical thinking. Good thing this animal style of thinking is getting eradicated, almost to the point of irrelevance.

    The only really embarrassing thing is that these people represent America to an extent. We give them guns, D schools, creationism education and subsidies. We let them feel important, powerful. But I guess that is the downside of democracy. If you don’t let stupid people have rights, then no one can. All we can do is fight this diseased, uneducated, self-loathing virus of a mentality.

    “Evolution, it’s not taught in the bible, it shouldn’t be taught in the class.”

    Darn, guess we shouldn’t teach American history in schools. That’s not in the Bible either.

    “Meth labs of democracy” is a very accurate description of the nonsense that is “states’ rights”

  • pappyvet

    Why am I not surprised that they wish to beat their children like the “good old days.”
