Well, for one thing, you can expect that the state is attempting to rectify a situation in a bad school district; a district so bad that they teach that "alot" is one word.

We don't know if the "bad situation" there has anything at all to do with disputes over any backwards, jeesus infested curriculum they teach there - or with what important teaching they suppress, like sex ed. The article only refers to budgetary problems, I believe.

Hey cretin, you're not clever. The article only refers to a budget dispute.

I bet it's entirely possible that both involved parties in that backwater area would like Creationism taught as testable science.

I mean, being talibangelical rubes and all.

If you, on the other hand, know anything about it then you let us know.

You can bet your ass on anything you want. Don't make you right, and as you said, you don't know.

It is just as possible that public schools in the Philadelphia area started their days with the Pledge of Allegiance and The Lord's Prayer, too. Oops! My bad. Not a possibility, but a fact. Was that way when I went to grade school in Darby.

Would seem from your remarks that you've never been out of Philly. Got news for you, Cretin, there is a whole other world out there and Alabama isn't the least of it. Aerospace industry, automotive factories,(Toyota, Hyundai, Honda, Mercedes-Benz) and the Army's largest helicopter pilot training facility, training both military and civilian helicopter pilots. I hope you never have to be air lifted to a hospital by a pilot trained at Fort Rucker. You might get exposed to some of that Creationism you are so down on.

Yeah, we're a bunch of Talibanical rubes down here. Bet it rankles you that my Representative slipped an amendment into the House Ag bill that denies food stamps to illegals, voted for the Sequestration Transparency Act of 2012, H.R. 5872 and is continuing the fight against Obamacare, the biggest tax ever foisted on the American public.

Fact is, all of the above really isn't relative. I just threw it in to rankle you even more.

You are in the same category as Marine Corp Pattycake and no matter how many screen names you use, I'll not pass on the opportunity to stick a thorn in your side.

I loved my time in PA... Webster, Donora, Darby, Hatfield, Lansdale, Colmar, even Montgomeryville, but I have to say that people like you make me glad I'm decades away from what it has become.

Twice you have admitted that the problem described in the article was a budget issue but twice also you have injected your collateral agenda to indict a perceived dogma of the school district and the community as the root cause of the problem. I’m amused at the irony of your calling someone out as “not clever” while offering only crude name calling and prejudicial assumptions as the basis for your comments.
Your purpose here apparently is to suggest that your enlightened state of mind is somehow more superior to people in Alabama that you have judged to be too fundamentally religious for your tastes. Degrading others in an attempt to advance yourself does not create the separation that you assume. That you would seek out a topic on Birmingham schools to parade your self-ordained enlightened religious understanding is curious. It smacks of many things but low self-esteem comes to mind.

Wrong, you stupid cretin.

The article says the takeover dispute stems from budgetary problems.

There is no indication whatsoever that one side has any sort of academic reform that is wise in mind. None.

And we know that buybull belt states are the ones teaching such idiocies as Creationism in sciences classes and abstinence education in sex ed. Their public schools, in the aggregate, are backwards.

Yes, it's a budget problem according to the article. Meaning any other post insinuating that there is some issue of academic improvement to be found in this dispute is erroneous.

And the talibangelicals are objectively nutty, not just fundamentally religious. They issue fatwas, think this is an xstain theocracy, "know" the earth is under 10000 years old, claim an internally contradictory text (most of which they ignore) is the inerrant word of god, and teach poetic, untestable fantasies as science. They are the height of anti rationality, and it's important for people to stop dancing around this fact just because the nutsos claim "religion."

You said:

I guess that makes you the cretin for having brought up any issues of academic curriculum about which you know nothing.

You just never learn when to keep your pie hole shut.

By your own words you sure spend a lot of time on erroneous musings.

Here again is post #4, which introduced, as I reiterated, the idea that any of this has to do with the quality of the education in this Alabama school district.

"Well, for one thing, you can expect that the state is attempting to rectify a situation in a bad school district; a district so bad that they teach that "alot" is one word."

Once more, I don't think public school authorities in the buybull belt are ever really trying to rectify the quality of the education in their public schools. I think they're most often trying to get the buybull taught as science....

Actually, it was post #5, yours, that brought up all that "buybull belt" bull crap.

An instance, by the way, where you can't seem to understand that post #4 was a derogatory comment regarding the public education received by One Ryder.

Sleep well, rest assured in that you have lived down to our expectations.

You're really damn dumb.
I haven't denied bringing up how public schools in the buybull belt are infested with anti rational talibangelicals.
That wasn't under discussion, you cretin.
The notion that this takeover had anything to do with education was brought up by someone else. I have only demonstrated that three times now.
The article says the takeover is about money. I agree, because:
My clearly expressed opinion is that the jeesus freeeks there by and large have no interest in educational issues. Not in any real way. They just want the buybull taught in science class.
So I am going along with the article's content in not claiming this takeover has to do with anything other than budget issues.
Considering as how it was you that brought it up, yes, it was under discussion.

See, that's all crypto brownshirt racists like you can do: Lie.

The question of education in this state or district's school system was initially brought up in post #4, not mine, you stupid, lying pos.

And I promptly said the takeover had nothing to do with education...since education is not what evigelical cretins try to do in public schools.
