Where's the Outrage?

I'll tell you where.  It's everywhere.  Following are just a few of the outrages found in various parts of the country recently.

In a Norfolk, Virginia, a teacher thought it would be a great idea to teach the Civil War by separating black students and let the white students auction them off. 

In the same school district, a teacher decided to take it upon herself to baptize a student with holy water because she thought the student's parents were atheists.

Another time, in the same school district, a tacher handed out flyers to 8 year olds to take home to their parents, urging them to vote for to vote for making medical marijuana legal.

And, again, same district, a teacher made her students wear necklaces which sported tiny fetuses, as a pro-life gesture.


The Maine legislature is about to legalize switch-blades, but only for people with one arm.


Once again, the powers that be at the Masters have enraged untold numbers of women. They did not allow female reporters to go into the locker room and interview the golfers after the tournament, while the male reporters were welcomed.  The Rednecks will never learn.


I saw a commercial in which three worried-looking women were agreeing that "It's time to talk about what's really going on in the bathroom."  We've come a long way from "Please don't squeeze the Charmin."  A long way, the wrong way.


And in Britain, scientists have confirmed the theory that the brains of Conservatives and Liberals are different. Conservatives' brains are much smaller and smoother. OK, I made up that last sentence, but not the first one.

Stay tuned.

An interesting study would be to examine the brains of the people in your clips. Goodness.
You caught me on that last one. You sure you made it up??

Margie's Musings said...

I wondered too...:)

Joy Des Jardins said...

Good God...what is wrong with people? Made up or not...I like that last sentence.

The stupidity of people never ceases to amaze me.

Are you sure you made up the last line, sounds logical to me :)

Darlene said...

I read that article on the brains too and thought it must be right. There has to be some reason why they are so stupid.

Linda Goldmen said...

As for brains what is your excuse?
I guess when god was handing out brains you thought he said rain and ran inside for cover.

Betty said...

Patti, Margie, Joy,Looking to the Stars and Darlene: I did make up the last line, but, studies are ongoing.

Linda: Bite me.

John: Sadly, I'm afraid you are right.
