This is so disheartening. That little 8 year old girl shouldn’t have had to learn such a harsh lesson in life in 3rd grade.

Creationism Being Taught in TX Public Schools Right Now

““There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.””

–Isaac Asimov

I’ve been following this story closely over the last couple weeks. I honestly did not expect them to pull it off.

Rack one up for the good guys. I hope people all over the nation pause for a moment to take a look at what’s going on in colorado.

A big thank you to the NRA and the hard working people of Colorado Springs.

“I will tell you these are ammunition, they’re bullets, so the people who have those now they’re going to shoot them, so if you ban them in the future, the number of these high capacity magazines is going to decrease dramatically over time because the bullets will have been shot and there won’t be any more available.” –Rep. Diana DeGette (D-CO)
