Drifting Towards Oblivion
ADA – We support amendment of the Americans with Disabilities Act to exclude from its definition those persons with infectious diseases, substance addiction, learning disabilities, behavior disorders, homosexual practices and mental stress, thereby reducing abuse of the Act.
Huh? What exactly does ADA do for "the gay"? What, pray tell, is mental stress in this context? Yes, let's make sure we exclude infectious diseases. What did the ADA do for you the last time you had the flu? How much abuse is REALLY occurring? This isn't about saving money or reducing fraud. This is about being mean.
Classroom Discipline –We recommend that local school boards and classroom teachers be given more authority to deal with disciplinary problems. We urge the Legislature, Governor, Commissioner of Education and State Board of Education to remind administrators and school boards that corporal punishment is effective and legal in Texas.
Who says beating kids is effective? Research has shown that spanking is harmful and difficult to control. What parents want school teachers to beat their kids? Oh wait. No one will hit their kids. It's the bad kids, them colored varmints, that need a good whipping. Of course the studies show a large white/non-white disparity between children who get hit. Like I said, 1860.
We believe Congress should repeal the Federal Reserve Act of 1913.
Do these people know why that act was passed? We don't want our savings protected? We trust that private and utterly unregulated banks will protect us?
In addition to the sheer insanity in Texas, (they also want to withdraw from the United Nations), we have jaw dropping hypocrisy in the face of the oil spill. Immediately after demanding that BP release all of its information regarding oil spill claims, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal vetoed a bill requiring his office to release its information on the spill. So what exactly would Bobby like to hide and why? And Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour, after weeks of declaring the worst damage was caused not by oil, but by all of the media attention, is now screaming about the oil. He didn't know it was coming?
The party of "Drill Baby Drill!" has its pants around its ankles, and if its ideas for solutions consist of the likes of repealing civil rights, instead of solving anything, it's just flashing its butt ugly arse.
