"Young'uns have too much time on their hands - they should be working not reading."
"They're reading, learning, cyphering and not working - we must ban books and book learnin', and relax the child labor laws." - Gov Sarah Huckabee Sanders
I had an eye-opening, if not unnerving, chat with the governor of Arkansas the other day.
The difference in the spelling and the pronunciation of the word ‘Arkansas’ should have tipped me as to the level of intelligence I was dealing with.
Sarah jumped right in, “My daddy strapped me to a plow the very day I started walking upright and it didn’t do me no harm. I’m a gosh-dang guvner now. Didn’t need no book learnin’. We coddle the young‘uns too much these days,” Huckabee explained to me.
“If they want to earn big money, they can do like I did. Apply for government grants and subsidies. And run for office.
“My daddy, who was also a gubner, taught me that. How do you think I can afford these here fancy clothes and plastic pearl necklaces I’m always wearing? Weren’t from any book learnin’, I can tell you that. And kick-backs are also a great way to earn money. You don’t need to read to figure that out. Look at the Trump klan.
“My cousin-husband and I hired a bunch of these hardworking and industrious kids. Arkansas has a huge supply of them warehoused in orphanages since we forced women to carry them to term.
“The orphanages rent them out and give the little guys a cut of the profits. So we always have a supply of kids who are ready to work.
“It worked out so well we adopted a few of the white ones.”

Ugh... I SO despise her HEE-HAW fashion aesthetic. Will she ever just put on some effing pants. No one wants to see those hillbilly dress-boot combos and envision her sickening GOP chub-rub. (Shivers in disgust).
