I love Texas, but my patience is wearing thin.
Hosting and supporting the worst POTUS in history was one thing, delivering his dystopia is pushing a bit too far.
Among the key changes voted by the State Board of Education for 10 years starting in 2011-2012 :
- pupils will be taught that "separation of church and state" isn't written in the Constitution, a necessary step towards Dubya's vision (Intelligent Design at school, theocracy in Washington)
- pupils will be asked to point out attacks from the UN and other international bodies against the US of Amerika (you know, them Human Rights and Geneva Conventions, those un-Amerikan terrorists who dared criticize the way we handled things in Abu Ghraib and Gitmo)
Contagion to other states would be certain : Texas being a major market for textbooks, it often sets the pace at the national level.
I'm speechless, but I hope true democrats and republicans (across the aisle, without the capital D and R) will not let this infamy happen.
The obvious ways out would be a gubernatorial win by Democrats or a Supreme Court overrule. But even if they lose in the end, GOP fundamentalists would win by reigniting a really un-american civil war. This episode is also a perfect stimulus for mid-term elections : expect a spectacular turnout across the Bible belt.
