4. Woe Is (Clueless) Mom

According to the submitter, Annalee’s homeschooled daughter Rose is 13, and according to me, Annalee is a total fucking moron. (Sorry, Annalee, but if you’re reading this, you are a moron.) Aside from her assessment of the shutdown being factually incorrect, she’s pinning the shutdown on her child not being able to complete her studies. But any good teacher knows that sometimes, shit happens — the copy machine breaks and the test is rescheduled; the cafeteria kitchen has a small fire and kids eat in their classrooms; the A/C goes out and kids learn in the heat — and you just have to make do with what you’ve got. Does Rose read books? I’m guessing she does. Just because the government has shut down doesn’t mean education has to, as well. And who knows? The Affordable Health Care Act might help allow for Rose’s future child to remain healthy enough to receive an education, too. You never know what’s possible when a nation is equipped with universal health coverage. Well, okay, we do know, but to people like Annalee, that would just be socialism.
