In national news, John McCain screwed up BIG TIME when he said:
"I would probably have to say yes, that the Constitution established the United States of America as a Christian nation," he said.
On Sunday night, McCain sought to clarify his remarks while campaigning in Hollis, New Hampshire. "What I do mean to say is the United States of America was founded on the values of Judeo-Christian values, which were translated by our founding fathers which is basically the rights of human dignity and human rights," he said.
McCain would go on to say, "Holy Crap, I fucked up." :)
In local news, a Kern County High School District Trustee has decided that all of the classrooms in Kern County need to display the national motto: In God We Trust.
Jack Jackyl will be at the meeting tonight to tell Mr. Vegas exactly what he thinks of this screwed up little ploy. Mr. Vegas has said, "In a release Vegas said the official motto of the U.S. is a "logical first step in making sure our students are informed and grounded in these basic tenets."
Excuse me? But, I would think the "logical first step" for American youth would be a vocal and justified protest of this asinine stripping of their civil rights.
But, wait!! There's more...
"If approved, Bakersfield City Councilwoman Jacquie Sullivan will provide the posters.
She has already been successful in posting the phrase in the council chambers of City Hall."
""There are those that are trying to remove God from our public life, and I do not think that is right and I think the national motto is important for that reason," Sullivan said in a telephone interview Sunday night."
(*@&#)!(@*&(*!&@# I am, personally, not trying to remove *insert sky pixie of choice* from any one's public life. What I would like is an adhearance to the principal that any "one" person should decide that MY children should be introduced to their magic sky pixie of choice. It's a public school, Mrs. Sullivan. It's not Stockdale Christian or Bakersfield Christian High!
For my local readers - please attend tonight's meeting.
Monday’s 7 p.m. meeting is open to the public at 5801 Sundale Ave.
