its time for more standardized tests

the news is all around us

we need to have politicians who understand arithmetic, science, and logic
how the hell do we wind up with a presidential candidate who thinks the middle class income is upto $250,000

clearly more standardized testing is needed in order to qualify politicians to run for office

1. Well, really.

The two front runners for president both say pretty much the same thing.

Individual, middle class is up to $200k. Family, up to $250k.

Actually, there is a difference. Romney includes $200k and $250k as middle class, while Obama just says "up to" and presumably stops at $249,999.

It also depends where you are. In some places $240k doesn't buy what it used to.

2. ESPECIALLY science

But I'm more worried about certain politicians religious beliefs, which they'd love to see made into law. It's a disgusting disgrace that we have so many politicians who think the world is 6000 years old, that Noah's Flood actually happened, and that abortion is murder.

3. I don't know how many actually believe it, and how many are pandering to the crazy base.

Either way, it's absolutely concerning. Good news is, when these people are exposed for who they are and what they really believe, the voting public gets turned off. Most Americans don't want to outlaw birth control and throw women in prison for taking the pill. The base of the GOP, does.

So, shine a big bright light on them, show them for who they really are, and watch the reaction; that's what I like to do.
