  1. Matt Gaetz is living proof of the Theory of Evolution… if the theory was as Mrs. Harrison put it: five monkeys having butt sex with a fish-squirrel.
  2. Yeah they stole it as well.
  3. Yeah I have no idea where it came from and it wasn't for a lack of looking around, either. The alma mater is based on a song from the Broadway musical The Red Mill, but it seems the fight song is, as you suggest, completely made up.
  4. Yup. You’re dealing with really repugnant stuff when dabbling in the whole required beliefs/prohibited beliefs thing.
  5. Well this is what they had in their platform statement back in 2012: Knowledge-Based Education – We oppose the teaching of Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) (values clarification), critical thinking skills and similar programs that are simply a relabeling of Outcome-Based Education (OBE) (mastery learning) which focus on behavior modification and have the purpose of challenging the student’s fixed beliefs and undermining parental authority. Of course, as previously mentioned, they’ve since scrubbed this off their main website and put something more tempered in its place…but who the fuck are they kidding? We’re supposed to believe that the 2023 Texas GOP is a more intellectual lot than their 2012 counterparts?
  6. Yes they updated it much in the same way chicken restaurants replace the word “fried” with “crispy.”
  7. Seriously our own state’s GOP has a formal position against critical thinking. If there’s a hurdle bigger than that one, I’ve yet to see it.
  8. Oh just the kind that fatty, incredulity, et al enjoy/tolerate. You know the kind…
  9. And uppity ones at that!
  10. Nothing that they do makes any sense…if you look at the GOP as a traditional political party and a bunch of elected officials. If you look at them as a group of social media commentators and provocateurs, then it all makes sense.
  11. You didn’t know? Robert Burns invented a time machine, went to America a century and a half into the future and stole it!
