I think I'd rather it was abolished than exist under DeVos. Consider

Great minds think alike! I was about to post something very similar.

RE: Al Franken and Betsy Devos...religion in school
Sorry, guys, I know it's not funny at all and I'd be worried if I had kids to get through school over there, but that talk about abolishing departments reminded of the brilliant (and ever topical Undecided ) Yes (Prime) Minister (love it!)





- We'll abolish the DES.
- I'm sorry?
- We'll abolish it.
- Abolish it?
- Why not?
- Abolish Education and Science?!
- That'd be the end of civilisation as we know it!
- Only the department. Education will flourish.
- With no government department? Impossible!
- Departments are tombstones.
The Department of Industry marks the grave of industry, the Department of Employment, that of employment, the Department of Environment, that of the environment. And the Department of Education marks where
the corpse of British education is buried.

[education under DeVos]
Teacher: Zac, what is 5-3?
Zac: 2
Teacher: No, answer properly
Zac: [fires 2 gunshots into the air]
Teacher: Correct

Elementary math under Betsy Devos
Q: Ned and Sheryl each have 4 apples. Who has more apples?
A: Whomever Mike Pence decides has more apples.

Math under DeVos:
If Bear A enters the school 5 seconds before Bear B enters carrying a gun, which Bear will reach you faster?

Zero school children have been killed in bear attacks since Betsy DeVos's confirmation. Take that, liberals.


Teacher- Sorry Johnny...you got a D on your paper.
Johnny- *slips teacher a twenty*
Teacher- Great job Johnny! B+!
That's the DeVos way!

I left my senator a message and told him that he's a whore. I don't expect a reply.

Al's speech.

He showed restraint. I kept expecting him to slip in a "for fuck's sake".





Two silver linings:
1. The requirement to get 60 votes in the Senate to get her policies through
2. Trump doesn't care enough to help her.

So I guess, teaching at a public university, I'll soon have to put in as an option on biological theories of crime "or God did it".

Need to think of a witty signature.

I hate thia government that is filling the cabinet with religious assholes.

I know the quote is from 2001 but it appears she still feels this way.

"If we are honest—and scientists have to be—we must admit that religion is a jumble of false assertions, with no basis in reality.
The very idea of God is a product of the human imagination."
- Paul Dirac

At this rate I just want that giant meteor to swing by and put us out of our misery.

Have you seen the TV program Designated Survivor? Consider
