One more time, is there a special stupid test you have to pass to be a school administrator?

Aside:

Honor Roll for second graders? Really?

Free admission? Really?

Like they’re going to turn away customers?

Full Disclosure:

This is an excellent local merchant whom we patronize when it’s time for spring and fall planting. Nevertheless, I just couldn’t let the adspeak slip by.

Flyer for garden center advertising free admission to a "show" which is really a sale.

We have a polity assemblage that believes in magic demands the government provide services while simultaneously refusing to pay for them.

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph.

I am ashamed of my country and of its having a major political party that panders to, stokes, and relies on bigotry.

I shall stop now, because all I have left is profanity.

Addendum, the Next Morning:

Crank Bear has the profanity so I don’t have to.

A local Republican member of the Virginia House of Delegates has proposed an Indiegogo campaign to build roads.

It would be simpler if he and his fellow Republican legislators faced up to their responsibility to maintain the Commonwealth, but that’s not going to happen, now, is it?

Now they need recess consultants, apparently because third graders’ unstructured play is a bad thing.

One more time, is there some sort of intelligence test persons must fail so as to become school administrators?

(Remember what a consultant is: Anyone more than 50 miles from home toting a laptop bag.)

The scammers have a new target.

Conversation is building in Washington on this question: Would the FAA be better able to handle its regulatory duties if the day-to-day operations of air traffic control were privatized?

The FAA, in a burst of sanity, is against the idea. Those who favor are it, natch, the folks who believe that there is no such thing as the public good.

Details of the con at the link.
