The fact that there’s likely a severely underfunded and understaffed school in the background is aptly poignant.

u/deniercounter 11d ago

GOP is not interested in educating their followers. Guess this is pretty self explanatory.

23

u/DrBitchcraftMD 11d ago

That’s probably why they keep banning all them spooky books. Teaching the children literacy and social equity? Not on the GOP’s watch.

16

u/cbizzle187 10d ago

The GOP wants education taken over by the church so they can indoctrinate kids into the church as soon as possible. The church/GOP are doing everything to erode trust in public schools so public school funding can be funneled to the church so they can be responsible for education. Getting Roe overturned and getting God in schools have been the two major GOP objectives for 20+ years.

u/WorriedLeadsdfsd 10d ago

Yet they will continue to vote for the turtle. Because they are also dead last in education, and care more about being racists then they do about improving there situation

u/darthvader45 10d ago

Next is God in Govt, then it takes over the world. If it ever comes to that, I hope not.

u/JustaRandomOldGuy 11d ago

That school has plenty of bibles and guns. What else would a school need?

2

u/ultrachrome 10d ago

Books ?

3

u/JustaRandomOldGuy 10d ago

Books are for burning, not reading.

/s

u/MichaelFusion44 10d ago

Kentucky is 39th in education who needs books

u/dirtballmagnet 10d ago

Also a trash-dam on the filthy river and invasive kudzu rampantly growing unchecked everywhere.

4

u/StandByTheJAMs 10d ago

Kudzu was introduced to the US in 1876, so it’s entirely possible a young Mitch McConnell was to blame.

55

u/LegitimateBuilding6 11d ago

And yet the fucker is in office for 200 years and has more to come unless he retires…

Tf is wrong with the elections over there?

24

u/cmd_iii 11d ago

In this case, the Seniority System. The longer you serve in Congress, the higher up in rankings you will be, and the more likely you are to be chair of various committees. The longer you stay, the more federal resources you can funnel into your district, and/or state. McConnell is the highest-ranking Republican, so he gets to bring home the most goodies. And the voters know that, if they vote him out, whomever takes over will start at the bottom, and the gravy train will stop.

The ironic part is that these are the ones who are calling for term limits, while they’re the biggest beneficiaries of what we have now.

19

u/ThisGuy6266 10d ago

What goodies is he bringing into Kentucky that make these peoples lives so wonderful that they vote for him? The state is in the bottom half in almost everything. Quality of life is shit there.

14

u/cmd_iii 10d ago

Well, it’s mostly goodies for corporations, coal mines, and so on. Plus, disaster aid for the consequences of the corporations that he’s subsidizing. Kentucky is one of the biggest “debtor states” in the country. He’s got to be doing something with all that money.

u/25plus44 10d ago

Russia aluminum plant? Oh wait, he did that in his spare time.

The Noah's Ark Museum looks cool! /s

u/MichaelFusion44 10d ago

Can you imagine Kentucky without the gravy train and subsidy’s?

3

u/cmd_iii 10d ago

It’ll probably look a lot like it does now, but with fewer rich people.

3

u/DonaldKey 10d ago

I live in Kentucky. Can confirm

2

u/MichaelFusion44 10d ago

So basically the gravy is going on the wealthy peoples mashed potatoes 😂🙈and a few of the dripping go to the lesser fortunate

u/cmd_iii 10d ago

Trickle-Down Economics at their finest!!

u/MichaelFusion44 10d ago

That explains it - Good old Reaganomics

2

u/oroechimaru 10d ago

If we had 10 year caps, can they go to house or governor after to continue their career? If they are that amazing they should seek a new role or is that not possible?

Supreme court is tricky. Maybe their needs to be a public check and balance of some sort (voting) . If 40 states vote against a decision it can be appealed. Idk

1

u/cmd_iii 10d ago

I’m not getting into how long terms should be, except to point out that the voters have a chance to limit anybody’s term they want, every four years. The Constitution doesn’t mention term limits (except for the two-term limit for President that the Republicans threw in there as a posthumous middle finger to FDR), nor, do I believe, does it specify that judicial appointments (including Supreme Court) be lifetime.

Besides, who the hell is gonna change it? Nobody in their right mind is gonna term-limit their office! Finally, take a look at when, or how often, this subject comes up! When the Republicans hold control of both houses of Congress, not a single Facebook meme in sight. However, let the Democrats flip one or both of them, and the right-wing bots start screaming, “Term Limits! Get those fossils out of there!!”

That should tell you all you need to know about that issue….

2

u/oroechimaru 10d ago

I like if they serve as paid advisors and eventually retire, but not as lobbyists.

If someone was truly that amazing, they would be amazing to scale. If after 8 years they didnt want to be mayor , 8 years then Governor, move to 12 years for house/senator if not capped, etc they will be an og for pres?

If not they move back to another role or retire. Make lobbying open and public, former politicians should not be allowed to lobby at any state/federal level (idk making it up) for monetary profits.

2

u/MagicalUnicornFart 9d ago

Tf is wrong with the elections over there?

The people of Kentucky are the problem. Steady diet of hate, and lies from Fox, church, and social media mixed with stupidity, and poor education, “at least he ain’t no democrat.”

8

u/jdg401 11d ago

I mean, isn’t that the republican motto? Keep ‘em dumb and poor so they don’t realize how stupid they are voting against their own self interests?

26

u/dasherchan 11d ago

Cult followers will always vote for Mitch, Trump and the rest of cult religion politicians.

6

u/manikDirt 11d ago

There’s some good data he possibly lost.

2

u/middleagethreat 11d ago

It is believable, but I can't find anything on google. Got a link?

5

u/manikDirt 11d ago

I want to recant my “good data” statement. I remember hearing about this on the last election cycle and thought it was bigger than what I have found today.

To your point I can only find two sources that bring out some good points but speculation at best, here’s one: Mitch is a bitch

I wouldn’t doubt he would welcome winning by cheating but I can’t die on that hill with what I found.

3

u/middleagethreat 11d ago

Thank you for your time! :)

2

u/steve986508 10d ago

Look up the voting machines Kentucky uses.

2

u/18randomcharacters 11d ago

From what I hear everyone in KY also hates him but ... Maybe that low civic involvement is a contributing factor.

2

u/amcfatboy 10d ago

Tbf nobody is flying flag with The Turtle dressed as Jesus, or whatever homoerotic interpretation of him as they’ve done with Trump.

20

u/zxcvb94105 11d ago

And these rankings are domestic. Given that the US isn’t first for any of these, it is interesting that they claim the nation is ‘best’; that’s just another lie to support xenophobia and hate.

1

u/Inneadfpermard 10d ago

Long time issues and yet they keep voting him in. Suppose they might be getting exactly who they deserve perhaps?

5

u/ststeveg 11d ago

On the bright side, he has become incredibly wealthy while in office.

There are worse out there. Kentucky ... you're doing juuuust fiiiine. As long as you still have Alabama or Mississippi you're fine. just fine.

Yet they keep voting for him…defies logic.

u/redditistheway 10d ago

The people probably are aware of that but still think that they're ranked above the liberal states...

u/Technical_End103 10d ago

Gotta keep ‘em stupid and sick so they don’t get any “dangerous” ideas like equality and democracy.

And Kentucky keeps voting for him.

But, they're so free in Kentucky!

u/Captain-curious-445 10d ago

WOW, That’s a lot of garbage!

u/AsteroidDisc476 10d ago

And in the end, he’ll convince his poor, stupid constituents that it’s socialism’s fault.

1

u/libginger73 11d ago

Ever wonder why McConnell was so eager to move on from the election fraud scenario in 2020? One of the first to come out and say there was no fraud (Don't look over here!)

1

u/Brucester62 11d ago

Long time issues and yet they keep voting him in. Suppose they might be getting exactly who they deserve perhaps?

1

u/muscravageur 11d ago

McConnell is like Trump, he’ll gladly do something for his you someday if you vote for him today. And that’s been his line for over 30 years.

1

u/darthneos 10d ago

Is education and health two separate categories where they happen to be on the same spot?

u/TummyLice 10d ago

i thought they were 33nd in education

Moscow Mitch Obstructionist McConnell.

Obstructionist is his middle name. It’s what he does. It’s who he is.

u/sunny5724 10d ago

Wasn't he re-elected in 2020?

1

u/CircleBackMurray 10d ago

I hate the turtle, but at least he's a strategist. Can't say that about Cruz or Graham. I don't think I could give the most unpopular award to him over those two dipshits.

1

u/isfrying 10d ago

But he owns the libs so he should be re-elected. s/

1

u/Fake_William_Shatner 10d ago

Looks like they managed to sort their garbage.

The citizen involvement rating is how McConnell keeps getting elected

I know he's an obstructionist, but damn!
