Ask an Atheist: Not on my dime. What’s wrong with school vouchers?

They make important information available about the problems with vouchers and its effect on lowering funding for public schools when we need improvement.

Yeah, but does it have to be a 10 on the Richter scale?

Prescient, from before the election:

Trump supporters telling a reporter, “Look, all we want is someone who will shake things up in Washington.” Behind them is a parade of deplorables and monsters including a hooded Klansman with a stick or bat, a huge Nazi thug wearing a swastika, an angry man in camo with a rifle and crossed bandoliers, and an anthropomorphized H-bomb (nuclear mushroom cloud).

"I have no sympathy for these kids.

Their parents broke the law.

They don't have jobs.

They cost taxpayers money.

Ruth - great repurposing of that classic line!

That guy lies like a sidewalk! Why he hasn't been run out on a rail yet is beyond me.

I wish he would spend 3 or 4 months here fighting fires & still deny global warming!
