    At this point I think it should be apparent that the Republican Party is nothing but a bunch of Republicrat Nazis who hate America.

    I'm thinking we need to start forcing politicians to drop this horrid pidgin-english they seem to have picked up. It sounds fancy, but it doesn't actually say anything and results in stupid shit like this.

    The school boards know that in the future the vast majority of students will have autism, so why fuck with it?

    It is also much cheaper, why pay teachers more? Hire more Mexicans.

    For the record, most of the elected republicans in the state congress are "shake your hand with one and stab you with the other" types and douchebags, but the democrats aren't much better. Despite having the same handshake methodology, ALL the Texas libs outside of Austin are spineless pussies who think everyone should just get along and know fuckall about politics. The libs in Austin, meanwhile, are all stoners and communists who think we don't need government in any way, shape, or form and yet thinks we could all get by if we sold crops and pot. Because we don't need government to regulate money, amirite? :picard:

    This bill is extraordinarily stupid, but that being said I take everything I read from TPM with a grain of salt. This will not be invincible until 2014, it'll be in effect until 2013 when the state congress can pass an bylaw changing it.

    lol bill faggots, lrn2comma.

    My mistake, I ran a triathlon this morning and am still discombobulated from it. If it's their party platform then it's even easier to change (make a statement, get some lawyers and a notary to approve the change, etc), which is why I take TPM with a grain of salt. Plus after the election do you think anyone's going to give a shit? Or, more to the point, do you think the voters even give a shit now? Texas public schools already rank among some of the worst in the nation so anyone who actually cares would have already made plans to put their kids into a private school years ago.

    In the grand scheme of things, this is :handjob:

    1. Just typical rankling between the parties.
    2. The world gets dumber everyday.

    The problem with this is that Texas basically decides the curriculum for the rest of the nation.
    The state is one of Americas largest buyers of textbooks, so what they buy is what everyone else gets stuck with.
    At least that's how I understand it, but I got that information from when Texas voted to change their history textbooks to make them more in line with Conservative beliefs. Supposedly that's why anyone outside of Texas cares about their school system.

    So, they're going to implement that "...can't explain that." based thinking?

    All questions in any major test in Texas schoots will now have those as the only answers answers.
    You'll find its really simple and easy to follow.

    2+2?
