Goodbye Texas

This should be the last darn straw. Really!Texas has gone completely wackadoo.
As part of the process a Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills review team composed of parents and teachers has suggested removing Neil Armstrong from a "science strand" in a 5th grade social studies book.
Why?
The team said they made this proposal because he was not a scientist.
Eh? Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, Texass! What are you thinking? Aside the obviously answer of "Nothing, nothing at all."

Man now you see the batshit crazy motherfuckers I have to deal with on a daily basis. Plus they are trying to reintroduce loop holes to teach creationism and not have to teach evolution to the kids in school.

Don't even get me STARTED on their version of science. I saw the same thing Genomic Repairman stated a few days back. Ridiculous and completely moronic are the first two words that come to MY mind.

Having lived in Oklahoma during my days in graduate school, I experienced first hand the wackaloonery of Oklahoma and her neighbors.

It was not pretty. And Oklahoma wonders why she can't get big business to invest within the state?
