Over the past year, state revenue collections have dropped dramatically, creating large budget gaps for many states. At least 30 states and Washington, DC are making budget cuts specifically targeting K-12 education. The long term impact is the creation of a country of morons.
The cuts in higher education financing are even worse. At least 36 states have cut back on funding to public colleges and universities, resulting in faculty and staff layoffs in addition to tuition increases. "The capacity to produce smarter citizens is getting harder and more costly. We will have to make do with morons," said one government official.
In some parts of the country, such as Detroit, we have had plenty of experience dealing with morons. In fact the less educated have proven they can function quite well in a number of jobs, up to and including state governors and there is even a past president who is a card-carrying moron (or as he likes to say "can't fool me twice").
While states and municipalities are pressed to balance their budgets, there is little discussion taking place on the impact of these budget cuts on school children, which leads us to believe that morons are already in positions of power.
Looking to the State to solve a problem is a bad idea to begin with. The government cannot fix anything. Government, being a negation of liberty, forces one person to bow to the will of the morons, and as the State grows, the less a person bows to the will of the State for a violation of rights and more because of a majority opinion of the morons.
In order to simplify things for the morons, in Indiana, they made a law that states that the value of Pi is 3. In Montana, it is illegal to have a sheep in the cab of your truck without a chaperone. If you are in Oregon, drivers must yield to pedestrians who are standing on the sidewalk. These are examples of the moron-friendly trends we are seeing, and this is the tip of the iceberg.
What can we do? Well if you want to raise smart kids, we suggest moving to Russia, as their literacy rate is about 98 percent. The very first dictionary “The American” took Noah Webster 20 years to put together, but most morons these days do not know what a dictionary is, let alone have one in their possession. These are the same morons who are making the budget cuts. And they are the same morons who created a law that boogers may not be flicked into the wind.
Clearly morons in government beget generations of more morons. Soon you will all need to learn Ebonics to communicate, as the English language is too difficult for our children. You need to get involved and vote for smart people before they are gone.
