I’m taking a day off today. No Who Won the Week post, no daily prompts posts. I’m just not I’m not in the mood today.
It’s not like their aren’t plenty of things to write about. Like how aghast I am at the nonsense that’s coming from some state and local school boards. Like the one in San Francisco, of all places, where the school board wants to remove names like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson from schools because they were slave owners. The school board even wants to remove Abraham Lincoln’s name because he didn’t do enough to protect native Americans.
And then there’s the Oregon Board of Education, which believes that asking school kids to show their work during math class is white supremacy. Apparently the Board has determined that “the concept of mathematics being purely objective is unequivocally false, and teaching it is even much less so.” The report added, “Upholding the idea that there are always right and wrong answers perpetuates objectivity.” And objectivity is deemed by the Oregon Board of Education to be another apparent “tentpole of white culture and supremacy.” What?
And then there’s Republican Congressman Steve Scalise of Louisiana, the House minority whip, who appeared this morning on ABC’s This Week. It’s been more than three months since Biden won the electoral college 306-232 and the popular vote by more than seven million ballots. It’s been just over a month after the Biden was sworn into office. And yet Scalice, the number two Republican in the House, still refuses to admit that Joe Biden won the 2020 presidential election against Donald Trump. Seriously?
But I’m not going to post about such things today. I just don’t feel like it. Sorry. See you back here tomorrow.
