Those mindless bumpkin zombies of Christian values also known as the Texas Republican Party have published their 2012 platform online. It calls for just about every kind of nasty, vicious, and backward legislation short of reinstating slavery. The Texas GOP are just heading out for the 15th century and damn the last vestiges of civilization which – in the modern conservative world – is strictly for the rich anyway. Some of the most horrific proposals are in the section titled Educating Our Children which – in addition to calls for a wider use of corporal punishment – seem designed to keep the youth of Texas ignorant, dumbed down, fearful, and hag-ridden by religion. Here are a couple of examples….    

“We oppose the teaching of Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) (values clarification), critical thinking skills and similar programs that are simply a relabeling of Outcome-Based Education (OBE) (mastery learning) which focus on behavior modification and have the purpose of challenging the student’s fixed beliefs and undermining parental authority.
“We recognize parental responsibility and authority regarding sex education. We believe that parents must be given an opportunity to review the material prior to giving their consent. We oppose any sex education other than abstinence until marriage.”

I read most of the Republican skreed but my breakfast was threatening to revolt if I didn't stop. Perhaps a fence around the entire state would be appropriate to Quarrentine the dangerous infection they wish to spread to the world.
