This one is going to be short and sweet, but it needs to be said. Republicans, Trump supporters, anyone who can defend this, WE NEED YOUR RESPONSE. How is this behavior not, as David Brooks would call it, reprehensible.
The Opposite of Enlightened…
Today, Queen of Jackassery Betsy DeVos was voted in as Queen of Education (approx.) in Trump’s cabinet. Here’s what I posted on Facebook about her:
Ignore all the zany stuff she’s had to say, ignore the fact that she’s never taught or even learned in a public school, ignore the fact that she falsely doubled the graduation rates of private schools to make them look superior to public ones, and then ignore the fact that she wouldn’t hold private schools to public school standards… she thinks schools need guns for grizzly bears… let that one settle in… there you go. It’s all about right wing buzz words. Privatization and guns, Privatization and guns. Not to sound old school, but I don’t know if commerce or guns belong in any of our schools, even the ones smack in the middle of grizzly country.
Also, she’s a grown ass woman who thinks and says this stuff.
Everything I just said was true, except maybe the buzz words part (again, prove me wrong, children).
Our Club VS Their Club
This shit is responsible for the downfall of politics in the United States. This shit caused Republicans to commit the “reprehensible” actions of stimying the process regarding Obama’s pick for Supreme Court Justice Merrick Garland.
This is basically the reason Obama couldn’t get anything done; Republicans wanted to fuck with him simply because, you know, he wasn’t Republican.
This is why the President just caused Schizophrenics and other mentally unstable folks to have access to guns.
It’s getting ridiculous, people. I understand that Democrats are guilty of this SOMETIMES, although I am doubting it’s happening as often. However, that certainly places blame and I shouldn’t be doing that.
So why vote based on your club, rather than the safety of our country or the future of our children’s education?
Your turn. Answer me, goddamn it.
