    Earlier this week, Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos defended the school choice agenda in the Trump administration's 2018 budget proposal. DeVos got chided by Democrat Katherine M. Clark for her inability to answer a question, in regards to discrimination against students in private schools.

    Also, an interesting perspective on where the focus of the Trump-Russia investigation should be.

    Former White House photographer Pete Souza has mastered the "show, not tell" technique in outlining the stark contrasts between former President Barack Obama and President Donald Trump.

    Since Trump took office, Souza has routinely posted images from his time documenting Obama's White House on his personal Instagram account, which currently has 1.3 million followers.

    And the photos Souza shares seem to be anything but random.

    Through his photos and their accompanying captions, Souza has taken a number of thinly veiled shots at the Trump administration.

    Perhaps it's because very few people in my IRL circle are creationists, even though I live in Oklahoma. I like to think that things have gotten better.
    Funny thing, I was going to post about how Trump is stupid and Devos is insufferable, but then I just stumbled upon this poll. It states that belief in creationism is at an all time low. Take it as you will. The number is 38%, which admitedly is still a huge amount of people. http://www.gallup.com/poll/210956/be...s-new-low.aspx

    I have to wonder if that isn't a pissy shot at Bob Corker as well since he's been mildly critical of the Trump Administration lately; there's a major Volkswagen plant just outside of Chattanooga.

    I know these guys are stupid with an emphasis on STUPID, but whenever you think we've hit the bottom of the barrel they show up with a shovel.

    So the racist shithead wing of Trump's cabinet is emitting Russian stink, the nutty military shithead wing emits a Russia stink, and now the dynasty shithead wing itself is emitting a Russia stink.

    At what point is there essentially no way it doesn't go to the top.

    It's truly crazy to think how nearly the entire echelon of the Republican party, in a more just and fair world, could be busted for treason. Especially how they often accused liberal Democrats of being Russian sympathizers way back when.

    lol, just remembered certain folks guffawing at us in the very earliest months after the election about that ridiculous Russia thing.

    A subset of them may be learning and their silence is acceptable and understandable.
    The others are busy stuffing their empty heads with feel-good conspiracy bullshit on /pol/ or somewhere to numb the pain of reality.

    Democracy is only as effective as the mass education level of the nation.

    No wonder the demagogue administration want to cut educational funding.
