they make ’em bigger in Texas
May 23, 2010
Conservative Christians in Texas are rewriting history in schoolbooks – and mis-educating their children in the process. Children will be taught the benefits of US free-market economics and how government taxation can harm economic progress. Great timing for that gem during the financial meltdown.
One of the more controversial topics (it got defeated in the vote, but quite unbelievable that it was actually up for a vote) was to trivialize the salve trade by renaming it. This would all be funny if it didn’t have such major repercussions for education. Yup, they make ’em bigger in Texas – idiots that is.
