The main thing that is wrong with the United States

On Montel Williams right now they are discussing how to improve education in the US, and the discussion revolves around how and in what amount we should punish teachers whose children aren’t learning so well.

Montel noted that South Korea and Japan had the highest ranked (by somebody) educational systems. I have a strange feeling that South Korea and Japan do not punish teachers, but the question of whether they do or don’t seems not even to occur.

This is the main thing that is wrong about the United States, that we still think there is a devil in each of us that has to be punished out. There is no such devil.

Blechh

This sertraline Walgreen’s is selling now, from a new manufacturer, melts in your mouth, not in your stomach.

It tastes like your typical Pickyourfavoritemedicine HCl tablet. I think they use a material called ‘yuck’.

Does he know this has happened before?

Rick Perry: ‘Texas is a unique place. When we came into the union in 1845, one of the issues was that we would be able to leave if we decided to do that.... My hope is that America and Washington in particular pays attention. We've got a great union. There's absolutely no reason to dissolve it. But if Washington continues to thumb their nose at the American people, who knows what may come of that.’

Mr. Perry, Texas tried this before, and the result was that Texas could not secede any more than could South Carolina. You want some more of that? I didn’t think so.

Maybe Todd Palin is giving Perry political advice.

Pornographic stupidity day

April 15, 2009, will go down in history as the day that several pockets of idiots spent ‘teabagging’ in protest against having their own taxes lowered. By the use of tea in their protest, these idiots meant to evoke a famous protest against a tax reduction for the super-rich, by people willing to die for the power to levy taxes.

I admit, it’s almost too hard to believe this happened.
