Louisiana Thinks Funding School Run By ‘Apostle And Prophet’ Is Somehow Constitutional

Via: Wonkette

Louisiana’s exciting experiment in public-school vouchers is steaming forward, providing parents and children with educational excellence and traditional values, hooray!

But that’s not all!

It’s also an excellent lesson in how the free market can improve education, by taking taxpayer funds from the wasteful public schools and handing it to efficient private schools run by religious loons, just the way Real America wants.

Among the 119 voucher schools approved so far is New Orleans’ Light City Christian Academy, founded and run by Apostle Leonard Lucas.

The state’s voucher program will be sending this gentleman, who “walks in the fullness of his calling and wears the mantle of an Apostle and Prophet,” some $364,000 to educate 80 students ($364,000 / 80 = $4,550).

(2 of 2) – Jindal’s ‘Louisiana School Voucher Program’ – Science syllabus

What they now will teach in Louisiana:

“Bible-believing Christians cannot accept any evolutionary interpretation. Dinosaurs and humans were definitely on the earth at the same time and may have even lived side by side (See photo) within the past few thousand years.”

Life Science, 3rd ed., Bob Jones University Press, 2007

Via: Huffington Post:

Under Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal’s sweeping new school voucher program, tens of millions of Louisiana taxpayer dollars will be used to offer vouchers to more than half of the state’s poor and middle-class public school students.

These students can in turn use these vouchers to attend more than 120 private schools, including a number of small, Bible-based learning institutions that boast extreme anti-science and anti-history curriculums while championing creationism.

Earlier this week, C. Welton Gaddy, the president of a national multi-faith religious group, blasted Jindal’s program in a letter to the governor, claiming the effort represents “a ruthless attack on public education” and violates the separation of church and state.

What they will now teach in Louisiana:

“Perhaps the best known work of propaganda to come from the Depression was John Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath…

Other forms of propaganda included rumors of mortgage foreclosures, mass evictions, and hunger riots and exaggerated statistics representing the number of unemployed and homeless people in America.”

Jindal Bores GOP To Tears In Castro-Length Veep-Tryout Speech

Via: Wonkette

Oh Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal. Why do you still try to talk at people?

Don’t you remember the last time you had an audience, when you skulked around corners in your haunted mansion to give the hilarious response to the State of the Union, the unkind comparisons to Mr. Burns, and a skeleton, and Mr. Burns’s skeleton?

Remember how everyone mocked you for trying to score cheap political points on spending money on — get this haw haw! — volcano monitoring about five seconds before that terrorist Iceland volcano shut down Europe?

Because you are an asshole?

Well apparently in addition to being an asshole, you are also super boring and not very self-aware and make people wait 45 minutes listening to you yammer about yourself and your transformative changes before you will let them eat their vittles, and everyone makes fun of you and people laugh.

~

Dinner waited in the wings until he finished, right around the 45-minute mark.

“I can assure you that I will speak shorter than our prior speakers, because the food is here,” said State Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos when he finally took to the podium, to laughs and cheers.

No, bring Bobby Jindal back!

We want to hear more about his dad for five hours, and jokes about port-o-potties while people are waiting to eat.

Mitt Romney should look no further, Bobby Jindal is the future of zzzzzzz.

Can’t help but wonder if this would work in the U.S.?

Maybe as Governor Fallin (OK), Governor  Perry (TX), and Governor Jindal (LA) suggests; we need to do a collective prayer; I mean HELL, I’ll try anything!

Ah-One, Ah-Two

“Hare Krishna Hare Krishna, Krishana Krishna Hare Hare; Hare Rama Hare Rama, Rama Rama Hare Hare”

did it work?

NO!

Okay let’s try it again; Ah-One, Ah-Two

“Hare Krishna Hare Krishna, Krishana Krishna Hare Hare; Hare Rama Hare Rama, Rama Rama Hare Hare”

DAMN!
