Our government schools are already contributing to the wussification of America … now government schools in Massachusetts will no longer be labeled as “underperforming” because this hurts the feelings of teachers and children. The schools will now be labeled as a “Commonwealth priority.”
A private school in Arizona spent $50,000 to build a fence … but residents of the town are now demanding that it be dismantled because it is too exclusionary. These complaining residents must have gone to the local government school.
In Tampa, Florida the school board is holding an emergency meeting to figure out how they can hire teachers who might be less likely to have sex with their students. Gotta love government schools (and school boards).
Enough government school outrages? Here’s one more. Government schools in South Dakota will pay children to take Advanced Placement classes.
New Jersey may pass a law that will require teen drivers to have their cars marked with a sticker or decal.
In Boulder, Colorado, hundreds of people may be off the hook after being caught speeding by a photo-radar van because the van was parked illegally.
Environmentalists in Corpus Christi, Texas have filed an injunction to stop construction of a wind farm project because it will “kill a lot of birds.”
A British solider has been barred from joining the police force because he has a tattoo of the word “England” on his forearm and some people might feel intimidated.
Lawmakers in California are thinking of qualifying pregnant women as “temporarily disabled.” Gynecologists say this is a bad idea because these women need exercise. But just remember … government knows best.
Seattle’s Landmarks Preservation Board has decided to label a 1960s Denny’s as a historical landmark … and it will just sit on the property with boarded up windows and rot.
