Benjamin Franklin said, “We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid.”
Here in America, we can proudly claim that we have a lot of hard working people!
Consider the “I were born igorent, and dang if I ain’t gonna stay igorent” folks whose rendition of the Constitution reads, “from my cold dead fingers.” These deep thinkers of domestic sociology hold that the best offense is a soft-tipped defense.
Utah has been working very hard to lead the pack, with 70 percent of its citizens believing that creationism should be taught in public schools. Of course, the evolution-creation debate can get pretty violent, and so it only makes sense to arm the teachers with facts, data, well-aged scientific research (usually from the 1300s), and laser-equipped 15-round Berettas.
I know, I know. Utah would never act so irresponsible as to issue Berettas to its teachers! That would be ridiculous! After all, the State Firearm is a Browning M1911.
You’ve got to admire the work ethic of a state that spends tax dollars to vote in a State Firearm.
Of course, it’s difficult to tell if they’re serious. Their State Fossil is the Allosaurus, a dinosaur that roamed early America three or four thousand years ago.
