While I was out sick/on vacation, our VP decided to make a Brochure template using our new desktop publishing software. He did a fine job, except for one little thing. All the
It's good to be needed, I guess.
Much crazy shit has been going on in our country since last I blogged. Shootings, freshman Tea Baggers threatening to cut NEA and PBS funding as a a solution to our deficit, claims of "blood libel" by the professional victim, and here in Texas, Gov. Big Hair is positioning himself for a presidential run. How you say? By pushing through "emergency items" sure to be favorites with his "base" - a Voter ID bill , another to end "sanctuary cities", a bill requiring a sonogram before getting an abortion, and legislation calling for a balanced Federal budget. Yep, we're $27 billion in the whole as a state but the Feds need to get their act together.
Speaking of that enormous budget shortfall, guess what our Republican supermajority wants to cut first? Education. Sure, why not? Speaking of education, we got rid of one crazy person on the Texas State Board of Education and replaced him with someone who thinks Intelligent Design should be taught. Guess which subject area the SBOE is tackling next? Science. Way to go, fellow Texans. It seems Texas will continue to be the laughing stock of the nation. Austin ISD is already contemplating cutting over 400 teaching positions because of the budget problems.
I have a nightmare - a winning Perry/Palin ticket in 2012. If either or both of these idiots gets into the White House I'm putting in for a transfer to our UK office. I would rather live in the ass end of Northampton than here if that happens.
It's enough to make me want to scream. Or go look at cute doggie videos.
I know it's not Christmas but Bailey is too much fun to pass up.
