    I don't know why people are surprised that orange moron Trump appointed this dimwit. How many of his other appointees are qualified for their jobs? This must surely be the worst administration in USA history.

    And you wonder why Al Franken was railroaded out. I would bet most of those "state fair" women were paid off by the RNC. Sad. Hoping he will run again, he can run circles around these numbnuts.

    The fact that DeVos ended up being confirmed shows how profoundly broken our government is. DeVos is entirely unqualified for the job and is deeply committed to destroying our public schools. Her horrible advocacy for "conversion therapy" is another reason she should be run out of town on a rail. Her brazen contempt for the US Constitution is enough to disqualify her for any government post. It's unreal that she ever got confirmed; she's a slimy swamp creature just like Trump.

    Statistically, not everyone can be proficient because 50% of people are below average intelligence. But I am speaking in terms of Math (statistics) which is not everyone's strength. I guess we can not stop until everyone is above average. And I am not a DeVos fan, as I think she is an idiot. Then again, I think all politicians are idiots.

But ironicly, none of them pray what they preach. They act more like vicious righteous dogs on rabies. More like someone who worship the GOD DAMN Satan ! CUNTservatives have developed, through the years, a very sneaky way to pretend to be "good and puritan guys" just to catch the vote of the evangelical CUCKOOS. But behind their "puritanism", hides the true FASCISM AND DICTATORSHIP, just like the one we see in China !
    So, FUCK RELIGIONS and FUCK CUNTservatives !

    First of all, it is evident that a student must grow and learn to achieve a level of proficiency and skill. Second of all, why does the government feel the need to regulate schooling? Just so my assistant teacher can say how great FDR was when the fact that FDR was the only president ever to put American citizens in Internment camps, just because they were of Japanese descent (Executive Order 9066), was never EVER mentioned in all my years of schooling? Just so these democrats can snatch up every teacher job and brainwash us, telling us that CNN was a neutral news site when my friend did her current events on a study that showed CNN was the MOST biased news site. Just so they can interrupt my current events when I show statistics stating that 60 million people of middle eastern countries support ISIS, and more than 250 million are undecided. And those are only the people stupid enough to not automatically say they hate ISIS, an organisation that throws homosexuals off roofs, sexually enslaves girls and women, beheads Christians, and routinely tortures its victims. Sounds pretty unamerican to me. So the teachers can restrain us from speaking the truth and our opinions unless it agrees with the liberal agenda. So my Spanish teacher can tell us "no me gusta Donald Trump," say how she hates America. Well then she should just leave. If a teacher said they didn't like Hillary Clinton they would be fired immediately, some kid would complain to their obnoxious parents saying that their teacher had a dissenting opinion than them, oh God forbid. What happened to freedom of speech? My dad can't even post the statistics he did on taxes because the government said that they thought he was trying to get out of paying taxes, and he would be harassed. What happened to no censorship?

    Senator Franken, you are a man of honor and integrity, and it's sad and it really hurts that you had to resign. You are man enough to own up to your mistakes. I was you inferred that is much more The nincompoop on high would do because he does not want to admit the truth. As Billy Bush said on Stephen Colbert it's no surprise the Trump claims that that was not his voice on the bus. If anything he's throwing us under the bus. And that redneck Yahoo Roy yippee yahoo MooRON- should be hooked up to a polygraph, but he would lie so much that he would break the machine -it's a shame.
