Politics, way over the %$#@ing top!………………..Population, 24,600. Race: 86.7% white, and apparently one Asian guy representing the .01% demographic. Median household income: $73 grand. Number of siblings sired at family reunions between cousins: Undetermined. Wikipedia gives the population of Edwardsville Illinois at 24, 293. The 2010 census says 24,663. The population, I suspect moves up and down depending upon the local giardia bacteria and fracking chemicals seeping into the water supply on a given day, or the number of late term abortions rescued by the local evangelical congregation from sorority pledges impregnated by Frat house parties at nearby Southern Illinois University. On Friday, August 15, 2014, and Monday, August 18, 2014, Dennis Cramsey, EHS Principal groused to students and faculty that parents were bereaved by mention of events of Ferguson and Michael Brown in classroom discussions. Obviously deferring to the parental politburo, Comrade Cramsey banned discussions of a critical conversation in the current American social and political landscape. The 26 or so black students at EHS, all of which are on the basketball team have super singing voices and could totally do background for Beyonce could not be reached for comment. Great lesson to teach, confront complex and difficult issues by ignoring them, but then what did we expect after decades of this Oprah-esque protect the innocence of my precious babies until their 40 and the trust fund kicks in banality. And the republican and faux-Christian assholes boot-licking for corporatists who used them to fuck with teachers unions by coddling a generation of weasily little brats who run home with their surreptitious videos to inform on teacher’s liberal blasphemy, or dare I say, the teacher’s supposed 1st amendment rights like some neo-Soviet urchins, or Hitler-fucking-youth. Buy a gun a big truck and work a suck dick job off your Walmart salary. Knowin’ shit is for pussies and liberals who believe in all that global warming, type-diabetes is bad unwhite world. Oo, I hate that Obama Kenyan guy! In a perfect world we’d fire this asshole Cramsey and then make him walk up and down in front of the school for a week with a sign reading: “Principal wanted. Assholes, Fascists and Dipshits need not apply. If you do, we’ve got a sign for you too.” But I’ll bet that Edwardsville like’s their American Taliban principal and will find some lawyerly way of making stupid seem like part of the American way.
