R.I.P., Barack Obama Elementary School (hat tip: reader Peter):

"The state fiscal monitor who oversees financial operations in the school district Thursday morning ordered the closing of the Barack H. Obama Elementary School as of July 1."

....

Peter adds: “Asbury Park’s school system was taken over by the state of New Jersey a few years back (along with those of other underachieving municipalities) for gross managerial incompetence...

Greetings from Asbury Park, New Jersey!

I can only imagine what sort of drivel was taught in that school.

Ban education degrees.

The will try and worm their way into the surrounding districts through crony anti-scholasticism.

Can it be called racist? A couple of years ago several failing schools in Seattle were being shut down and the parents we calling the shutdown racist.

They could sing Gary US Bonds “This Little Girl is Mine” to raise money for the kids. Limousine Jersey Libs.

That’s a sad photo. Seeing the peeling paint, I could see where perhaps at one point they might have wanted to spruce it up a bit. But then someone brought out the EPA regulation book. Probably went something like “Prior to any major remodelling, tests of paint for lead content; tile floors for asbestos, and cabinetry for formaldhyde must be performed. No major remodelling can be performed if 0.00001% of above substances are found, unless all substances are removed.”

Perfect!

During this nuclear crisis in Japan, I have found out how many younger Americans have little or no scientific knowledge. It’s appalling.

But public schools can devote time and resources to sex education, and how to put condoms on bananas!

Could they turn it into a golf course named after him?

If they did then any golf balls played there will be swallowed up into the mysterious black holes of the Obama Deficit Greens, the Socialist Hazard sand-traps or Lakes of Lies and never to be seen again.

And of course after playing a round of golf there will leave you badly shaken, emaciated and 99% less money & assets than when you first went in and nobody will ever visit there twice!!

If the MAN is such a walking dolt of an socialist anti-American imbecile, then the trains may inherit those traits and automatically become a train-wreck!!

So you agree that it's appropriate to name something after him that has no balls?

Since when do we even name schools after living presidents, let alone serving ones?

It should be ‘serving’ in this case, in quotes, and I’m not yet even convinced the office occupant is legally qualified to be president.
