Well, That Ought To Fix It

Oh Florida, you suck.

I kinda suspect this ain’t gonna solve the problem.

With the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High shooting still looming large, its students in the Capitol to lobby for gun controls, the Florida House overwhelmingly passed a measure Wednesday its sponsor said aimed at bringing “light” to the schools.

The bill (HB 839) would require all public schools to post the state motto, “In God We Trust,” in a “conspicuous place.”

And they wash their hands and was away, even though the last shooting was at a Baptist Church here in Texas where I suspect there were a multitude of God things on the damn walls.  Well, at least they died trusting God.

 

It Just Might be a Movement

Okay, I’m not ready to predict that congress will be regained in November.

However, I do recognize that something is happening.

 

  • In deep-red Kentucky, Democrat Linda Belcher sailed to victory in the state’s 49th House District seat with 68% of the vote on Tuesday.
    .
  • Belcher’s win marked an 86-point swing from the 2016 general election, when President Donald Trump won the district with 72% of the vote.
    .
  • This is the 37th state legislative seat Democrats have flipped from red to blue since Trump’s election.

All you can say to that is holy damn cow.  That right there is really something.

So, it appears to me that the only thing we have to fight in November is the damn Russians stealing our elections because the Republicans are handing it to us.

I never dreamed I’d ever say Go Kentucky!

 

 

Mr. President

Young people have helped lead all our great movements. How inspiring to see it again in so many smart, fearless students standing up for their right to be safe; marching and organizing to remake the world as it should be. We’ve been waiting for you. And we’ve got your backs.

Oh Holy Crap

This is not photoshopped.

Trump needed crib notes on how not to be a jerk to Parkland survivors.

 

 

The visible points include prompts such as “1. What would you most want me to know about your experience?” “2. What can we do to help you feel safe?” and “5. I hear you.”

I hear you. Holy crap.

And somebody should have told Betsy DeVos not to smile constantly like your watching a second grade play while somebody is breaking down sobbing in front of you.

Thanks to everybody for the heads up.

The Tale of Two Cities

February 21, 2018 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

There’s a place called Needville, Texas, that’s about as redneck a place there is outside of Yehaw, Texas. It’s right down the road from me and in my county.  And I am ashamed of that.

Needville ISD Superintendent Curtis Rhodes on Tuesday threatened to suspend any student who disrupts schools or walks out to protest current gun laws.

In a letter sent to families and published on schools’ social media sites, Rhodes said students would face a three-day, out-of-school suspension if they joined in growing protests nationwide over the shooting at a Florida high school last week.

And do you want to know why he’s going to suspend them? “A school is a place to learn and grow educationally, emotionally and morally,” Rhodes wrote. You know, except about your rights.  And, apparently, he also thinks it’s a place to get shot and die.

The principal also makes it very clear that “parent notes will not alleviate the discipline.”  Luckily no principal on earth ever said that to me about my children so I didn’t have to punch any of them.

Y’all, if they had that rule when I was in high school, I’d still be in high school.

Then on the other side in Dallas, Texas.

In the wake of last week’s deadly gun rampage in Florida, one of Dallas’ top leaders wants the National Rifle Association to hold its annual convention elsewhere.

Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway said Monday the NRA would be “met with opposition” if it continued with the event planned for May 4-6, WFAA reported.

And the NRA says —

NRA spokesman Andrew Arulanandam said the group wasn’t changing its plans.

“No politician anywhere can tell the NRA not to come to their city,” he said. “We are already there. Dallas, like every American city and community, is populated by NRA members.”

I guess Dallas needs a high school principal.

Thanks to Irene for the heads up.
