Fantastic!

There is proof that the ignorance of the American people is created.  As long as they are buying tacos who cares if they know about how they are being exploited. 

A daughter of hope and fear, religion explains to Ignorance the nature of the unknowable. -Ambrose Bierce

That's so fucked up. No small, self-interested group of people should have that much power unless I'm one of them.

How can not believing in something that is backed up with no empirical evidence be less scientific than believing in something that not only has no empirical evidence but actually goes against the laws of the universe and in many cases actually contradicts itself? - Ricky Gervais

Oh shut up you towel head, just because you are a fellow Redskins fan doesn't mean you or I have the right to bitch about being second class. This wetback, didn't know his place, I know my place. It is behind our Christian overlords who own this joint. You piss them off you are in a world of hurt.

You hit the nail on the head. I recall an ad from this years superbowl in which some guy accomplished various feats, the most notable being delivering a baby tiger while on safari IN AFRICA!

"Faith, Faith is an island in the setting sun,
but proof, proof is the bottom line for everyone."
Proof, Paul Simon

Nothing this hard should taste so beefy.

One of the Texas Republicans

One of the Texas Republicans who help push for this (David Barton) is a buddy of Holocaust deniers and Neo-Nazis - he voluntarily spoke at white supremacist and "Christian identity" rallies back in the 90s, then claimed "not to have known they were Nazis":

http://littlegreenfootballs.com/article/36137_Glenn_Beck_Promotes_Theocracy_and_Interviews_David_Barton_-_Speaker_at_Neo-Nazi_Rall...

He's also one of the more popular "Christian nation" revisionists - and he's been caught outright forging Founders' quotes in books he's published, to prove that the US was founded as a Christian nation.

He also has no credentials in history and earn his doctoral degree from a diploma mill (Pensacola Christian College) which is located right next door to Kent Hovind's creation museum.

And this is the guy who's deciding what your kids are learning in Texas public schools. No wonder our generation is screwed.

Optimism is reality, pessimism is the fantasy that you know enough to be cynical
