In 2010 some of the most damage was done by the Conservative school board members.

In 2010, the then board members of education implemented such a distorted version of history, that it made national news and is still often talked about today.

That year, they implemented changes in text books like Joseph McCarthy an American hero, and particular historical figures, including the first African American U.S. Supreme Court Justice, Thurgood Marshall, and labor leader Cesar Chavez were complete erased from the books.


Now here we are living in dumbfuckistan where 63 million of our fellow citizens thought a reality TV show host was qualified to run the country.

"As people do better, they start voting like Republicans - unless they have too much education and vote Democratic, which proves there can be too much of a good thing."
