Moral Relativism and the Ever-Moving Goalpost

Well, we've really done it now! Housewives (because normal men don't watch that garbage) all over the United States are in mourning since the heralded Matt Lauer got canned for abusing women in the workplace. The female "talent" on the morning show, where this sleazebag used to rake in nearly 25 mm a year, are crying in their coffee. In case you didn't know, Matt Lauer is only six years older than me, so HE KNOWS BETTER. He's just a bad person.

You want to know the bizarre thing? These crying women KNEW that Matt was a bad person and said NOTHING!!!

You want to know something else? I'll bet any amount of money that Donald Trump has done the same thing!!!

You want more? Barry Obama has done the same thing with Democrat men!!! Plus, he literally screwed everyone else in the whole world by being such an incompetent, feckless moron!

Oddly enough, we're ALL bad people!!! But, that doesn't absolve anyone of suffering the consequences of their behavior.

Now, you want to know the weirdest thing about all of this? In 1880, the age of consent in Delaware was SEVEN YEARS OLD!!! In 1920, Delaware had raised that age to 16, but, even today, the minimum age of consent in some places in the United States is 12. (Check it, I dare you!)

What does that have to do with Matt Lauer being scum of the Earth? Well, I'm going to tell you.

Changing social mores have made any behavior acceptable in any place. NAY! Deviancy is demanded by the "enlightened people." That's what happens when you have freedom without responsibility. By the way, in case you didn't know, stupidity SHOULD hurt. Pain is a great teacher, but still we continue to define deviancy down. <---term originated from DEMOCRAT Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan in 1993, but he was talking about crime in the black neighborhoods. Today, he would be regarded as a "far-right winger" by our national media and college professors, even though he was at best a leftist.

Is there any way to change the ideology of freedom without responsibility? Absolutely, but we will have to rid the world of Democrats. In Biblical times, they were referred to as "Moabites." But, more importantly, we must come to understand that there does exist ABSOLUTE TRUTH.

Here's one, if you're married, don't have sex with anyone other than your spouse, but even more than that, DON'T EVEN TRY TO DO IT.

In the society of today, we have become a nation of people that continually lives by the mantras, "That's none of my business" and "if it feels good, it must be good," but what about when those ideologies affect our children? As parents, we simply must demand that our offspring follow absolute truths that were accepted from the beginning of time. Not only that, you know that there are times that you will lose your mind over a supposed slight of your kids. Guess what, everyday occurrences are ALWAYS slights against your kids. They are going to get bruised and battered, all day, every day, and there is absolutely nothing you can do about it.

EXCEPT! Show your kids that while life is going to be hard at times, the ones that wind up making the largest difference to the human species are the ones that can roll with the punches. Here's a shocker, a twenty-six year old is NOT a baby!!! But, neither is a seven year old, why, just 137 years ago, they were mature enough to consent to doing the wild thing!!! In the currently "enlightened" enclave of Delaware!!! (FYI, Delaware was a SLAVE STATE, kept slaves until two years after the Emancipation Proclamation, and didn't ratify the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments to the United States Constitution until 1901!!!)

Furthermore, you know that you have had times all up in the Wal*Mart when you wanted to snatch your belt off and straighten out someone else's kid. YOU would have never behaved like that because your parents would have done the same thing, but, they didn't sometimes and you learned that there were certain times that you could get away with things and sometimes you could not.

Such is the nature of the human beast. Will it ever change? So far, it hasn't in the history of man, so odds are slim that it will ever change.

To anyone that will listen, I always say that doing the right thing is always harder than doing the wrong thing. If you put your big, fat brain to work long enough, you'll know this to be true.

Have you ever pocketed a ten dollar bill that you found on the ground? That was the WRONG thing.

I started this blog in January of 2005. In October 2005, I added the header text you see above. This is a Wayback from October 2005. Even then, I knew that I was on my way to becoming the person that I was supposed to be, even if it had to have been subconciously. I am not there by any stretch of the imagination, but I'm closer than I was in 2005.

If it takes one man fully twelve years to start doing what he has known to be the right thing since early childhood, changing a nation shall certainly take much longer. I am fifty-three years old, but the personally ignored absolute truths that guide my life have always been there. I just chose to not follow them...much like Matt Lauer...and Donald Trump...and Barry Obama...please, you know that you are not shocked.

If you do not know this, never trust anyone that votes for Democrats. Sorry, Democrats fought tooth and nail to maintain slavery. Think about that, Democrats have always wanted to OWN PEOPLE. Matt Lauer is a deranged Democrat fanboy who makes every attempt to OWN women within his grasp.

Oh, give up on the Clintons, though, they are going to Hell, all of 'em and their lunatic supporters.

Please take the time to comment.

Man, I am so out of practice and rusty that typical posts read like a disjointed series of nothingness, now. Even more so than in the ago. Sorry.

Drive-By Blogging - Normal People Better Unite

Man, what in the world is going on in this world? In the last week or so, we've had a Democrat kill fifty-nine people in Vegas, one of the Obama's good Democrat buddies get outed as a serial rapist (everyone was keeping quiet about it for a coupla' decades, well except for the jokes about it at the freakin' Oscars!!!), everyone quit watching professional footbaw (because of the SLAVERY!!!), and Democrat California passed a law, that makes it like a parking ticket, to knowingly infect another human being with human immunodeficiency virus or HIV. Oh, and people with HIV can actually donate blood!!! That's how they killed Arthur Ashe!

Stellar job, people!!!

I guess that since I have not been posting, people forgot what they were supposed to do and how they were supposed to act. I'll correct that by giving few hints in this post.

Number One: Don't murder anyone. To normal people, this is a no-brainer. But, since there are 200 million registered voters, and 48% of them are Democrats, there are at least 96,000,000 people in this country that can legitimately be referred to as "Moderately Impaired or Delayed," according to The Stanford–Binet Intelligence Scale. Normal people refer to the "Moderately Impaired or Delayed" as MORONS, which all Democrats are. Please don't make a single attempt to say that there are smart Democrats, that just makes you look stupid, like a Democrat.

Number Two: Don't rape anyone. Again, to normal people, you really don't have to teach this, but there is a special class that Democrats give that offers up the finer points of how to rape somebody and get them to make jokes about it on color tee-vee. I know, it's very hard to believe, but it is true. That video is from the 2013 Academy Awards and it wasn't funny to me because I didn't know there was a guy raping people!!! Because I am a normal person, I would have told the POLICE!!!

Number Three: If you were never a slave, you cannot complain about being a slave. I guess I need to tip-toe around this issue because I have never been black, but I can honestly say that playing professional footbaw for the minimum wage of Two Million Three Hundred Ten Thousand dollars for your first four years, you do NOT know what slavery is. By way of comparison, even if you were working at fifteen dollars an hour, it would take you 154,000 hours to make that kind of dust. To break it down for you even more, to work that many hours, you would have to work twenty-four hours a day, every day, for six thousand four hundred sixteen years and eight months. Quite frankly, even slaves don't live that long.

And finally, Number Four: Don't infect someone with a life-threatening medical condition to get your rocks off. Since Millennials do not understand Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS), it killed a bunch of sexually promiscuous people and needle junkies back in the day. It was originally called GRID (Gay-Related Immuno Deficiency) or Gay Cancer because it only infected homosexual men, but Harvey Milk made sure that it would get into the blood supply and kill normal people as quickly as the gay men were dying. Yes, that Harvey Milk that is revered as a saint by stupid people everywhere today. I seem to remember Sean Penn, the wife beater and Communist, making a movie about good, ol' Harvey. In case you are wondering, over 230 billion federal tax dollars have been spent on AIDS research since 1981. I'm guessing with the new laws in California, test patients will be numerous for your research grant work, Dr. Government Scientist.

All that carping aside, I would like to state for the record, quit it. Y'all are acting like Democrats to allow these things to keep happening. Until this country, The United States of America, regrows its backbone and starts standing up for the things that are good and right and just, more of these ludicrous things are going to continue. Notice how Roger Goodell wrote that letter right after President Trumperoid said that players that kneel need to be fired? We're all like that, if you make that first move, someone will back you up, even if you are a mediocre President.

I guarantee it.

Drive-By Blogging - Sick of Debating Pre-Paid Medical Plans

"Mr. Doofus, I certainly appreciate you agreeing to pay for all of the medical services for my client, Aging Democrat Groupie Who Slept With Rick James and Magic Johnson. We're ALL going to be RICH!!!"

Since I only post about twice a year, the number of eyes and ears that my posts reach are negligible, but I like to pretend that there are still one thousand people a day reading my drivel. Occasionally, the voices scream so loudly in my head that I have to post. This circumstance is no different.


After hearing no fewer than six references on the news today about the debate on "healthcare," my brain is ready to a'splode! There simply cannot exist a person so stupid as to actually believe there is a debate on "healthcare," because no one can define that ambiguous term and even if they could, they would not even mention the actual legislation that is being bandied about in the Swamp in D.C.

You see, Non-Idiotarian, the United States Congress is yakking about nothing but PRE-PAID MEDICAL PLANS. Oddly enough, we have had those since 1973 and the cost of MEDICAL SERVICES has exploded since that time. Did you know that Teddy Kennedy pushed through the Health Maintenance Organization Act of 1973, with Richard Nixon (Not EVEN as evil as Trump!) signing it, in the hopes that some day, it would lead to the Democrats being able to selectively determine who lives and dies? Yeppers, I ain't lie.

As other factors in the ever increasing costs of medical services, we have Medicaid, Medicare, and the federal government throwing pallets of money at "research facilities" that do nothing but write grant applications while never "curing" a single malady. Hey, even The March of Dimes is all aboard the PORK TRAIN, now. Back in the day, they were trying to wipe out polio and DID, but they had to keep rolling in the jack, so they decided to fight "low birth weight." Hey, I know, let's call it, "Preterm Birth." Ambiguous enough? They will never "cure" them apples!!!

There is really no need to discuss the half a billion dollars of tax money that goes to Abortions R Us every year.

Now, to state this quite simply and succinctly, there is nothing good about the federal government having any control over YOUR health. Anyone that tells you that the federal government can bring down the cost of medical services, WAIT, WAIT, WAIT, they're not even talking about doing that!!! They're talking about bringing down the cost of PRE-PAID MEDICAL PLANS that have benefits THEY determine the plans must have. They are talking about the COST of the ambiguous plans that were devised by Teddy Kennedy's sick mind a mere 1266 days after he drowned Mary Jo Kopechne at Chappaquiddick. Instead of being on death row, Teddy decided to put everyone on death row and Nixon allowed it!!!

You know, if we had just one ACTUAL MEDICAL PROGRAM that the federal government was running to determine if they were capable of performing those tasks, maybe I wouldn't be so uptight about having a bunch of bureaucrats determining what I needed to do with my own body. Maybe we should try that for a small segment of the population and see how that works, FIRST.

(You know, the military has all the good weapons, wonder what would happen if they turned them on the people that give them such crappy medical services year in and year out?)

These days, even Republicans are talking about keeping the "GOOD STUFF" of Obamacare, like coverage for "Pre-existing Conditions." Dude, seriously? Do you Congressmen think that everyone is an absolute moron? Every single illness, disease, or injury is a PRE-EXISTING CONDITION!!! Do you go to the doctor when you are well?

"Aw, man, I am feeling so danged good, I think that I'll roll down to the hospital and have an almost total stranger stick something in my mouth and and if I'm lucky, my butt, too!"

(You do notice they always do the mouth first, butt next, and then right back to the mouth? Did they swap the gloves or no? I was kinda all embarrassed and not really paying attention!)

The moment this whole "debate" will cease making me want to punt kittens will occur at the exact second where they pass legislation that says emergency rooms can turn criminal Mexicans away. Do you know why people go to the emergency room? Guess what the number one reason is? Hey! And guess how much those people DON'T pay for their visit?

I'll give you one guess who pays for those visits. I have just pointed out a medical services cost savings of forty-one BILLION dollars ($41,000,000,000.00) a year. I know, you are going to say that the doctors will start turning away patients. YES!!! I am saying that! That's what I want them to do, get the deadbeats out of the emergency room that have a stinkin' headache!!!

In case you were unaware, when "Single-Payer" is the law of the land, and it will be unless you blow up the phones of your Republican Congressmen, you will be forced to pay to make all the sexy occur on "people" like Bruce Transjenner. Squat and watch, that'll happen three months after the passage.

Anyhoo, ignore this post, words don't mean anything anymore, anyway.

Drive-by Blogging - Nothing is Mutually Exclusive

I have been hammering home a point for as long as I can remember, NOTHING, and I do mean NOTHING is mutually exclusive. Therein lies the problem with "Progressives." They only see the single problem to which they have turned their hideous gaze. Everything that is affected by their idiotic single-mindedness be damned! FULL STEAM AHEAD.

Here's a short butcher's list of how morons operate. The lowest paid employee doesn't make enough to support a family of twelve, so let's give him free food, a free home, free clothing, and a free education! Ignore the fact that for as long as we have been doing that, poverty has not been reduced a single percentage point. You would think that after fifty-three years, the poverty rate would go down at least a smidgen, but you would be wrong. It's because the federal government keeps RAISING the threshold to be classified as poor. It's funny though, "poor" people in the RAAAAACIST, fascist United States all have enough food to make them obese, sometimes numerous cars or SUVs, 75" flat-screen color tee-vees, and iPhones, but somehow they are still classified as "poor." As long as something is not rigidly defined (words mean something, you know) you cannot solve the hiccups along the way.

And let's keep spending more and more tax money on the poor, it AIN'T cost nuffin'!

Here's another fact that not one person can dispute, raising minimum wage makes everyone poorer. You see, when you take an arbitrary number and throw it at the least skilled person that you can find, without raising the salaries of the non-idiotarian, you make the non-idiotarian pay MORE for the very same things that they must purchase. The only people that experience, at BEST, a zero sum game, is the least capable worker you have. All of your more skilled employees have just taken it in the shorts to make the least capable employee THINK that you did something for him. Just so people with less than average intelligence understand, $10.00 buys more when minimum wage is $1.00 an hour than when it is $7.25 an hour. If you need further instruction on how that can be possible, email me at and maybe we can set up some anti-idiotarian lessons with my trusty, ol' cluebat.

Now, both of those topics have been geared to point out problems that are ALLEGEDLY experienced by "The Poor," yet everything that is done to attempt to alleviate the problem hurts everyone BUT the poor, which are not helped at all, anyway. Facts are curious things, huh?

So, how do we really help the poor? Of course, the answer is to teach them to do things that UNpoor people do. Simple, right? It actually is, but FIRST we must agree what UNpoor people do.

First thing: DO NOT SPEND MORE THAN YOU MAKE. That seems simple, but to someone that has never had to work to survive, that is very hard to understand. If you (and your mama, and your grandmama, and your great grandmama) are on food stamps, housing assistance, education grants, etc., you might have no clue how much you actually make! Or you might not know the weight of the yoke you place on the people that are literally carrying you.

Second thing: If you want to buy something that you cannot afford currently, you either have to make more money or SAVE MONEY for that thing.

Third thing: Whopping buttloads of money are not going to make you happy, except in the short term. If your contentment depends on a free-flowing fountain of unlimited money, you have no chance to experience what peace truly is. Wonder why the majority of lottery winners are bankrupted quickly? Could it be that mainly poor people buy lottery tickets and by definition do not know how to handle money?

Quickly to make a point, in Mississippi, Median HOUSEHOLD Income is $36,919.00. So, if you get a Bachelors Degree in Education, according to the current pay scale, a teacher with ZERO years of experience makes $34,390.00 a year. Almost the total median income for a FAMILY!!! WOW! Teachers are raking in the jack!

Of course, their salary doesn't buy much because Minimum Wage is $7.25 an hour! And, oddly enough, nobody's salary is paying enough!!! A sixteen year old punk can go to work at McDonald's, work forty hours a week, and bring in $15,080.00 a year with ZERO education, ZERO experience, and ZERO importance, well other than making sure a basket goes into and come out of the fryer on time.

[Sidebar: If a sixteen year old punk goes into McDonald's and shows them that he can work like a beast, he is not going to be stuck at $7.25 an hour for very long.]

You see, the fact that you pay Smedrick or Julio or Frank a whopping $7.25 for mindless labor ROBS YOUR TEACHERS ANNNNND, everyone that makes more than minimum wage.

Again, nothing is mutually exclusive, so everything that a school system has to purchase has gone up in direct proportion to the minimum wage because raw materials, products, services, books, paper, pencils, Van Halen albums, etc. cost more when you raise the minimum wage. Instead of continually clamoring for more money for teachers or education or roads or fidget spinners, why not simply begin to address the REAL ACTUAL PROBLEMS?

Now, if you want to help raise people from poverty, cut off the magic money fountain of welfare, cut the federally mandatory minimum wage to TRUE minimum wage, which is ZERO, and DEMAND parental accountability for their children. Furthermore, if there is a child that is disrupting class, get rid of them. Plain and simple, if they do not want to learn, then give them what they want. I can absolutely guarantee that the results will not be any different for that child, but they will be monumentally different for the children that do want to learn.

Here's a couple of little nuggets to chew on for a minute, as well. If someone is a staunch advocate of abortion, what do you think that they think of older children? If they think that it is just hunky-dory to slaughter babies, why would you listen to a single thing that they said about school age children? Don't you acknowledge the fact that if they hate babies enough to kill them, they are probably going to hate school age children even more?

"Oh, but you have to take into account what they are saying about XYZ, even though they are a horrible human being!" Um, no, actually, the exact opposite of that is true. You see, Adolf Hitler, arguably the worst person of the 1900s, was an animal lover. Would you take dog grooming tips from Hitler and say, "Oh, he knows the best way to trim their toenails, oh, I know he slaughtered six million Jews, but just look at Cleopatra's mane!!!"

Now, I said all that above to say this, we spend plenty of money on education, more than plenty, actually. What we need to do with the money that we do spend is make sure that it is accomplishing what it is supposed to accomplish. I think that I pointed out in a prior post the level of funding the school receives where my wife teaches and my kids attend. There is something like 148 school districts in Mississippi, but only three spend less than my local school district. Oddly enough, two of those three districts are A schools, the other is a B. Of the twenty schools that spend the most money per student, only two have better than a C. Weird, huh?

Oh, but don't take my word for that, check it out for yourself.

Please take the time to comment or not, I just do not care about solving these types of problems anymore. You can't fix stupid and there's a buttload of it everywhere you turn.

Because Only Morons Are Democrats!!!

This is Corrine Brown of "Go Gata" fame. She is a moron. She is a Democrat. But, I repeat myself. While this woman is an absolute paint-licking idiot, she is also one of the "GOOD" Democrats because she is about to be locked up in prison. As I always say, not all criminals are Democrats, but ALL Democrats are criminals.

They are also lying scumbags that are a scourge on our planet. Normal people should have made being a Democrat illegal after the Civil War, but they were too busy trying to put their lives back together after the Democrat Party tried to rip our country apart.

Of course, anyone with an IQ over forty already knows these FACTS.

On to the BLOGSHOW!!!

Democrats, "morons" to people that are not morons, have taken to the airwaves to compare The Trumperoid firing James Comey to the Watergate debacle or maybe even worse. Democrats wanted him fired last November because he alluded to something everyone else already knew, Hillary Clinton is a criminal that jeopardizes national security and should be in prison.

But, The Trumperoid firin' Comey is WORSE than WATERGATE!!!

You know what? Watergate was NOT even Watergate. Do you even know what Watergate was about? Of course you don't and that is what I am going to clear up for you.

You have to start with a single premise. Democrats are evil people that have always wanted to steal your money and enslave you. If you do not know these FACTS, then you are not informed. No, there has never been a single good idea come from the Democrat Party. A stopped clock is right twice a day, but that is twice more than any Democrat has ever been.

The "Watergate Scandal" as it has come to be known was a break in of the Democrat National Headquarters located in the Watergate Hotel. The Democrats had their national headquarters in a hotel so they could have them some fun time with pages and interns, little girls AND boys, and never have to leave the office. Yes, there were all kinds of horrible things going on at the DNC at the time, as always, but we have to hear about some guys breaking in to bug them. Wonder why President Nixon wanted to bug a hotel where Democrats hung out in the first place?

Well, it wasn't because he was worried about not being popular, was it? He won the election with an Electoral College vote of 520 - 17. (Sixth biggest margin in history. FDR being the only Democrat in the top 10, BTW, and we all know what a horrible man he was.) He beat George McGovern and Maria Shriver's daddy so badly that their mothers never talked to them again. NOT KIDDING, EITHER.

Sidebar: 1972 also had Democrat Shirley Chisholm running for the Democrat nomination, but she got her head stuck between some stair balusters and couldn't even vote for herself!!! The first major female candidate for President HAD HAD HAD to be a Democrat and too stupid to not get her head stuck somewhere.

You see, you have to realize that the job of the President is to protect the United States of America. That means to keep an eye on the most criminal elements in the country. That means DEMOCRATS. At one time, I pulled crime stats and poured over them for seconds. It doesn't take someone with a doctorate in statistics to quickly see where all the crime occurs. IN MAJORITY DEMOCRAT AREAS. Take 45 seconds to check that out. Look at areas where Hillary Clinton won the Presidential race in 2016. It done blowed up with crime, yo!!! Ignore the FACT that Democrat elected officials go to jail at a rate eight TIMES that of Republicans, too. That's just a scratch on the surface, remember, most of the judges are Democrats, too!

Now, you also have to take into account that at the time of the Watergate "burglary," the Democrats were rioting in the streets trying to surrender in Vietnam. You know why they wanted us to surrender? Because they didn't want the United States to win against Communism. Do you know what Communism is? Read the platform of the Democrat Party and you will understand. Really stupid people require other people to tell them what to do with their lives. It's because Democrats are so stupid, that their leaders seem intelligent by comparison.

HEY! Remember when Democrat Chris Matthews said that Democrat Barry Obama was quite possibly the smartest President we had ever had? HEY! Remember when people with more than two brain cells knew that Barry Obama drank from the toilet because he was too stupid to work a kitchen tap?

Anyhoo, enough about how stupid Democrats are. In the future, when there is an appearance of impropriety in the White House, instead of comparing it to Watergate and a President that resigned, why don't we compare it instead to Democrat Bill Clinton actually getting impeached for lying under oath to keep a woman from having her day in court?

Also, ignore the FACT that Bill Clinton raped at least two women and possibly more. Instead, let's pretend the worst crime is breaking into the DNC to keep tabs on Communist sympathizers!!!

Well, Because I Haven't Made Everyone Mad Today!!!

Every so often, I drop back in here to swing for the fences with my cluebat. Today was an especially tough day because of Washington's birthday being observed. There was a never ending stream of news articles, radio commercials, and posts on media about the imaginary "President's Day" and it got to me. By the way, even the moonbats' go to "fact-checker," Snopes, finds President's Day to be FALSE. Just saying.

Anyhoo, the thing that normally gets my cooker going is the "debate" about Democrats. Having grown up in Mississippi during integration, I kinda know a little bit about Democrats. Yeah, I know, I know, crazy people will always tell you that by some Big Bang, the parties switched people and ideologies. Oddly enough, you can find some folks that have swapped parties, but for the most part, that number is really, really small. And for the most part, the ideologies are the very same as they have always been, just somehow those corrupt and racist ideas of Democrats are now good things!

To compound matters, there are actually people in this world that think that Hillary Clinton, the wife of a corrupt, impeached President, would have made a good President. Folks, I am not at all reluctant to tell you that you are utterly incorrect on that. There is not one redeeming quality about Hillary Clinton. The fact that the Democrat Party actually allowed her in the party at all should tell you that they are not good folks. By the way, did you know that Hillary Clinton spent nearly a billion dollars to lose the race to a man that until recently was a Democrat, has virtually no morals whatsoever, is perfectly orange with disco hair, and "only" spent 531 million to beat her? Add to that a national media that could not find a single thing wrong with her, the President at the time spending untold pallets of tax money campaigning for her, and not a single bit of good press for her opponent other than for Sean Hannity and Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit?

How would you like to be told that the only people allowed to talk positively about you were Sean and Jim?

If you want more on why you should run screaming from the Democrat Party, I have compiled about 229 reasons. Some of those reasons are laced with harsh language, so earmuffs ON!

Now, having avoided making my school teacher wife mad for all of 42.5 minutes today, I thought I would change that luck.

In the cozy little hamlet where I reside, there is a school bond issue up for a vote. Please understand, I do NOT technically live in the district, the curtain climbers under my roof attend that school because their momma teaches there. Having limited knowledge of what that bond issue covers other than trying to sorta rearrange and expand the schools into the old school compartmentalization, I thought I would roll out an opinion on education and funding in general. YAY! ME!

Judging by the Mississippi numbers, North Pike spends less per pupil than the vast majority of school districts in the state, about $7334.06, give or take. Only three districts spend less. Nineteen school districts have a better rating, but they have A's and NP has a B. An absolute ZERO school districts have a failing rating. HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE?!?!?! I know I saw JPSD on that list!

Also, I am not too sure how meaningful that rating is because I don't know if they follow any of the students after they leave school. Just so you know, I really don't gauge success of an education until that student hits the age of thirty or so. If they are still Democrats, they FAIL. I like my metric better than school test scores.

All that fluff said, I do not have any issue with a local school district putting a bond issue to the population at large to see if they want to spend some money to expand their school. That is how government SHOULD work. In case you're wondering, the most recent numbers that I can find show less than 3000 students at North Pike. That means North Pike spends about 22 million dollars a year on students. About half of the students are on the free lunch program, but that money comes from social services. There are about 150 teachers in the schools, which breaks down to a 20:1 student to teacher ratio.

What I have a huge problem with is this. In 2011, the state of Mississippi, FINALLY, after 141 years, seated a majority Republican Legislature. Yeppers, y'all thought that Mississippi was Republican through and through, but you were wrong! Just so you know, I am not so much a Republican as I am Anti-Democrat.

Since that 2011 election, we STILL have a state hissy-fit going on about the Mississippi Adequate Education Program. Do y'all realize that Mississippi's expenditure on education makes up 35.2% of the state budget? For your information, 30.1% of the state budget is spent on welfare programs. Soooooo, 65.3% of expenditures in Mississippi are for two things. That means that our state government spends 13.32 BILLION dollars a year on just those two things. By way of comparison, we spend 2% on corrections and 7.1% on roads. There is also an undefined 25.5% spent on other things. (In case you're mathing right now, that only adds up to 99.99%, so I assume they just put 0.01%, which is 2.04 MILLION, on the roof of the car and drove off with it up there.)

Are we spending enough to "adequately" educate Mississippi's school children? Unquestionably, YES. You simply cannot debate that and appear sane to a sane person.

Sidebar, do y'all remember when Democrats in Mississippi legalized gambling? You remember how that was a panacea for our schools? Do you also remember that the lying scumbags in the Democrat Party never earmarked gaming revenues for education? Did you know that those lying scumbags actually took that 12% gaming tax, designated 8% of it for the general fund and sent the other 4% to the five counties where the casinos were built? So, can you do that math to find out how much goes to the other 77 counties in Mississippi? WHAT ABOUT THE SCHOOLS?!?!?!?! (Get ready for the Republicans to suggest Da Lottry as the next, best panacea for the schools! This will be the one time that the Dillweed Employment [read "union"] Attorney from Oxford teams up with Republicans because Education Matters!)

This whole diatribe above was to let you know that your government is going to lie to you. It's better to have the ones in your hometown doing that lying because you can take care of it yourself. With a tubesock. Full of pennies.

Oh well, I don't know anything about education or math or Democrats or anything. Never mind.
