An Indiana Republican-controlled Senate Education Committee voted 8-2 to send legislation endorsing the teaching creationism in public schools, to the super majority (37-13) Republican controlled Indiana State Senate. Senate Bill 89 allows school corporations to authorize "the teaching of various theories concerning the origin of life" and specifically mentions "creation science" as one such theory.Ah! I can't wait for Norse-Creationism to be taught in Biology class! YMIR was the father of six-headed son that was nourished by a cosmic cow called AUDUMLA. Audumla fed herself by licking the salty rime-stone, until that stone was licked into a shape of man. Ye, but verily did WOTAN slay the Mighty Frost Giant Ymir and from his bones made the earth and from his blood made the seas and rivers and his skull became the Vault of the Heavens! ODIN!!!!!!!
State Sen. Scott Schneider, R-Indianapolis, who voted for the measure, said if there are many theories about life's origins, students should be taught all of them.
But, wait there is more! Not to be outdone on the March Back in Time, the Indiana House voted 54-44 to pass one of the Right-To-Fuck-Over-Workers Bills. The Indiana Legislature has 3 bills (2 House and 1 Senate) which contain language making it illegal to be part of a Union or Labor Organization. These bills are so bad that even the NFL Players Association condemned the right-to-work bills in a Jan. 6 statement, calling it “a political ploy designed to destroy basic workers’ rights.”
And you thought the train had pulled away from the Pullman Shanty Towns forever! This is how Corporate evil works, little by little they undermine hard-fought gains until the you wake up and your Rights as a worker are gone.
You really think you're going to negotiate paid-sick leave and a salary increase? You think your complaints about unsafe working conditions are going to stop the Company from putting you in harms way? Just ask the 29 dead workers at the Msssey Energy Upper Big Branch Mine or the 11 dead Oil Rig workers on the BP Deepwater Horizion Off-Shore Rig?
Once Corporations get the power to pay you slave wages that's exactly what you are going to get. Don't like it? You're fired! Combine this with Republicons working to steal Social Security, unfund Medicaid, eliminate Medicare, and roll-back Obama Cares the vast majority of Americans are looking at being chained as Serfs and Wage Slaves to the 1% Neo-Feudal Industrial Machine.
