Default How is Kansas even a

Jack Wu, a member of the Westboro Baptist Church, is running as a Republican for a position on the Kansas school board.

Statement on his website:

Quote:
The current public educational system in Kansas and the United States is preparing its students to be liars, crooks, thieves, murderers, and perverts. My mission, in running for the Kansas State Board of Education, is to throw out the crap that teachers are feeding their students and replace it with healthy good for the soul knowledge from the holy scriptures. Let's be specific. Evolution should never be taught in public schools as science.

Evolution is false science! God made the heaven and the earth and created humans from the dust of the earth! The very bad teachers that teach that men descended from apes via evolution need to have their teaching licenses revoked. Yes, students should be taught that God created everything.

School administrators are always complaining about budget problems and lack of funding for this or that. Haha, that's funny. I have a really simple solution to solve that problem: Eliminate funding for evolution textbooks and pseudo-education. We'll save a ton of money! Tell those evolution textbook publishers to recycle their waste of paper, and tell those evolution teachers to teach truths instead of lies. The lies of men and of the devil need to be expelled from the classrooms of Kansas, and of the United States, and of the world. Make room for the truth of God!

"Evolution" textbooks are a crippling expense for school districts?

Phelps is a Democrat. Perhaps he'll run against Wu.

It doesn't surprise me that a nut job is running for the Kansas School Board. However, I'm willing to wait and see if they actually elect him before I start demanding that Kansas be expelled from the Union.

Interesting.

Would you say that on the whole, GB is superior to the USA?

Yeah, for one the US doesn't have an entire legislative house based entirely on hereditary peerage and state religion.

And in Canada it's not by hereditary peerage. You can can get in by being a hockey star or a news reporter.

I would not be shocked by either Senator Ron Maclean nor Senator Don Cherry.

You can get elected President of the US if you're an actor. Ronnie Reagan did. And that was after we'd all seen what an asshole he was in California and screamed "NO! He's an asshole!" as loud as we could.

But wasn't he also a union leader, and otherwise a politically active Democrat before being elected POTUS?

And our senators are appointed.
