Ok the stupid down here in South Carolina is burning big time. It is coming from so many directions one’s vision is obscured by it. The fair Guv’nor Haley recently stated that she would like to have the jobless drug tested before they would be eligible for any benefits. Her reasoning explained while discussing a visit to Savannah River Site a nuclear reservation:
“Down on River Site, they were hiring a few hundred people, and when we sat down and talked to them — this was back before the campaign — when we sat down and talked to them, they said of everybody they interviewed, half of them failed a drug test, and of the half that was left, of that 50 percent, the other half couldn’t read and write properly,”
She goes on to say:
“We don’t have an unemployment problem. We have an education and poverty problem.”
That explains how a woman in Spartanburg, SC managed to purchase what she thought was an IPad but turned out to be a block of wood. That might also explain how ANOTHER woman in the same county of Spartanburg, was duped into buying what she thought was a laptop but that turned out to be, when she got home, a bundle of papers wrapped in electrical tape.
She might want to stop veto-ing education spending in her state, like her recent veto of approx 90 million in K-12 spending for next year’s budget.
Teh stupid, it burns…..
