Texas Educator Calls Evangelicals ‘Kooks’ Who Hate Reading

Some parents in Austin, Texas have their panties in a twist over books they claim contain pornographic content in their schools.

In truth, these religious bigots consider any book that affirms the dignity of the LGBTQ community pornographic. If they were really serious about blocking access to pornography, they would take the time to learn how to set parental controls on their children’s phones and other electronic devices. Although, truth be told, that’s a losing battle, children’s curiosity will always win out over their parents’ feeble attempts to restrict pornographic content.

In response, a teacher, Krista Tyler, mocked them as anti-reading bigots at a school board meeting by reading a Dr. Seuss-style poem:

“Everyone in Leander liked reading a lot, but some evangelicals in Leander did not. These kooks hated reading, the whole reading season. Please don’t ask why, no one quite knows the reason.  It could be perhaps critical thinking causes fright.  It could be their heads aren’t screwed on just right. But whatever the reason, their brains or their fright, they can’t follow policy in plain black and white.”

It’s patently true that evangelicals hate reading, especially books that depicts a reality that exposes the unscientific basis of many of their cherished myths and fables.

By the way, they also hate reading the Bible, the average evangelical is unaware that it endorses slavery and genocide.

In their churches evangelicals can ban any reading material they don’t fancy, and exalt the Bible few of them have read from cover to cover. But in public schools children should be exposed to science and history textbooks and great books of literature that may be anathema to their parents.

Trump Lies Because He’s a Liar

Liar-in-Chief

George Conway isn`t buying former White House communications director Anthony “Scaramucci`s claim that President Donald Trump lies because he thinks it`s fun.

The conservative attorney, who is married to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, on Friday appeared to suggest that Trump`s fondness for telling untruths is actually more deep-seated.

He used a fish-themed tweet to explain:

I don`t really agree with this. Think of fish. Fish don`t swim because they think it`s fun; they swim because they`re fish.”

Huffington Post

There`s nothing fishy about Conway`s explanation for Trump`s mountain of lies. Trump hasn`t piled up almost 10,000 lies since his inauguration because he gets a kick out of telling fibs.

Fish don`t swim for exercise or recreation, they swim because they`re fish. When you`re born with a tail and back fin, you`re going to use those appendages to swim in the water.

Trump lies because he`s a liar, a pathological liar. Naturally sometimes Trump lies because he thinks it`s fun, for example he enjoys exaggerating the size of his crowds knowing reporters will wax apoplectic.

Trump lies for myriad reasons, sometimes he lies because of his inferiority complex. He lies about his IQ to cover his ignorance and stupidity, and he brags about the size of his hands to compensate for his shortcoming.

Sometimes he`ll tell a whopper about a political opponent because he`s a mean-spirited SOB who thrives on demeaning and ridiculing his intellectual superiors.

Trump will lie for a specific reason, and he will lie for no reason, sometimes he`s aware that he`s lying, sometimes he isn`t.

If Trump`s lips are moving, chances are he`s lying. When his lips stop moving and he gives up the ghost he should be buried in his dung pile of lies.

11-Year-Old Who Cut White House Lawn is a Stooge Who’s Trying to Humanize a Monster

“President Donald Trump has taken up an offer from an 11-year-old in Virginia to help cut the White House grass.

`Frank from Falls Church, Va.,` was helping the grounds crew cut the Rose Garden grass on Friday, according to press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. On Friday, she shared an image of him pushing a lawn mower next to the West Colonnade.

Frank Giaccio was so focused on pushing the lawn mower, he didn`t notice Trump had emerged to greet him until the president was next to him in the Rose Garden. Frank got a high-five from the president, who called him `the future of the country.`

Last month, Sanders read a letter from the boy in which he wrote that he admires the president`s business background and has started his own neighborhood lawn care business.”

NBC News

Trump supporters tout Frank Giaccio, who goes by the nickname `FX`, as the embodiment of entrepreneurship and hard work that made America Great, but the rest of us view him as a willing stooge who is trying to humanize a monster.

FX waived his usual fee of eight dollars, figuring that the publicity will expand his business to the point where he can cut grass fulltime, and drop out of middle school.

Trump has a sad history of stiffing contractors, I doubt he would have paid him anything anyway. The young landscaper probably left the White House with only a “Make America Great Again” hat and a signed glossy photograph of The Donald.

FX hails from Falls Church, Virginia, a wealthy suburb of Washington with the lowest level of poverty of any independent city or county in the United States.

The little creep may be a hero in his affluent hometown, but in real America he is anathema.

The president called FX “the future of our country,” if that`s true our great democracy is doomed.
