JR stumbled across this so I just had to share.
I don't tend to make this blog into a forum for my own politics because I really believe that we all have differing opinions and no one's is bad. Some days I can't really help myself. So here is a quick one that I promise I'll try not to repeat. I can't guarantee because damn I don't make the rules. I just follow them and exclaim how incredibly stupid they are.
No matter what you think about the Huffington Post you can't possibly dismiss the fact that the Texas Board of Education has gone too far. Don't want to read the Huffington Post? Try any of the other legitimate news sources. Google Texas Board of Education and textbooks. They've voted against adding Hispanics to the history of Texas. They call into question the separation of church and state and erasing Thomas Jefferson from American history books as the most important figure in the enlightenment and replacing him with the 17th century English Theologian John Calvin is a travesty. My friend Matt-Man over at Bagwine posted an awesome response to these actions. Jeff Schneider wrote an open letter to the Board that says exactly what I would like to say.
Don't think this effects you? Think again. Texas is the largest buyer of textbooks. Publishers are going to want to make the Board happy. That means you textbooks are going to reflect Texas Republican dogma. Yipee!
End of rant. Sorry, we'll move right along.
How JR and I spent our weekend.
No hating now. It's just not very attractive.
JR and I have started watching a show called Top Gear on BBC America. These guys are hilarious. We laugh until we cry. Plays hell on the mascara, JR's not mine. It's waterproof. (he's going to kill me for that one) If you haven't seen them go watch the linked one.
