Home schooling priorities

Category: Stupidity
Posted on: June 26, 2009 10:03 AM, by PZ Myers

It’s very kind of this home school football league to provide their list of priorities.

I would guess that #3 is very, very far down the list.

I would feel better if this was not really the par for the course from Alberta politicians. I would think by now that they would have taken a page from Harper’s federal playbook and kept the loons muzzled and in the background. The recent kerfuffle with Bill 44 (and the mess it is going to cause) coupled with statements like this:
.
.
“Men are attracted to smiles, so smile, don’t give me that ‘treated equal’ stuff. If you want Equal, it comes in little packages at Starbucks.”
.
.
I’ve just posted the highlights of the train-wreck from CBC.  For a detailed analysis please see The Intransigent One’s comments. Insightful and well worth the read.

Well on the bright side, aside from social conservatism, Alberta tories do a wonderful job of mismanaging our natural resources. It is comforting to know our beloved conservative party possesses a solid, fail enhanced position on resource management, once they are finished mucking about with social issues.

Edmonton-Calder Conservative MLA Doug Elniski apologized late Monday afternoon for controversial comments that he posted on his blog, and insisted that he is not sexist.
Elniski posted the text of a speech on June 13 that he said he gives to junior high school students at Grade 9 graduation ceremonies.
Part of the posting included advice to girls saying, “Ladies, always smile when you walk into a room, there is nothing a man wants less than a woman scowling because he thinks he is going to get s–t for something and has no idea what.”
It continues, “Men are attracted to smiles, so smile, don’t give me that ‘treated equal’ stuff. If you want Equal, it comes in little packages at Starbucks.”
Elniski’s blog was taken down on Monday afternoon.
