Why Are Texas Schoolchildren Being Taught âthe Curse of Ham?â<br />


Tea Party was an act of terror, does its best to whitewash history altogether, and now teaches remixed fables with the aid of cartoons.

It’s all been a collaborative effort among Republicans in the state, led by Gov. Rick Perry – who fights issues like drought by issuing declarations for days of prayer – that’s resulted in Texas’ abysmal education record all around.

You can say a prayer, wish on a star, or just a penny in a fountain, but please, think happy thoughts about the reported new initiative by Democrats to turn Texas blue and hope for the best. The kids need it. Jesus, too. Like, hasn’t been through enough?
