Do We Need Religion In Public Schools?

If you think we need religion in schools, I have one question for you.  Which one?  Well, since you're from around here, you probably say Christianity. And again, I'd say "which one?".  Experts put the amount of different Christian denominations at around 33,000 variations and that's the low end.

Jade Helm To Officially Produce More Nuts Than Planter’s

Okay, this is a tough one. The more you write about how stupid something is, the more opportunities it gives for the idiots to deny it.  Still, this won't go way until September, so let's have some fun.

Abstinence Only Education Is a Complete and Total Failure

"Just Say No." We all snickered at that phrase when Nancy Reagan used it to try to keep kids off drugs. That didn't work and drugs are scary. Sex, isn't scary. In fact it's pretty fun and it's part of our biological imperative. Trying to tell kids to just say no to sex is like trying to tell them not to sleep, eventually the urge will get the best of them.
