The Texas Schoolboarding of America
Two-thirds of the 1,000 American adults polled couldn’t name a single current justice, and just 1 percent were able to name all nine sitting justices…
…The largest proportion of respondents were able to name Clarence Thomas, at 19 percent
Of course, they were undoubtedly shown pictures and identified him as Justice Horny.
But thanks to not giving a damn about education except to the extent it leads to truly effective sex education and eliminating all that godless evolutionary theory:
More Americans could identify Michael Jackson as the composer of “Beat It” and “Billie Jean” than could identify the Bill of Rights as a body of amendments to the Constitution.
Among this group is Rand Paul, self-styled libertarian — especially the whole 14th Amendment thing as being in the Constitution, from reproductive rights to birth citizenship.
In another decade the Texas School Board standards will have us all “armed for the rapture”, yet incapable of buying the right caliber of ammo. So, mission accomplished I guess.
