Without the banner, it would be hard to tell.

    And an essay topic which explores the similarities between corn farming, nuclear weaponry, and print journalism would be a superb example of the common core standards in English that this nation desperately needs.

  2. Jeremy:

    Jesus, there’s enough ideas there for a year’s worth of Nick Kristof columns.

    I’ve read it through carefully several times, and I think this must be The Onion. The giveaway is “nonessential public school programs.”

  4. NonyNony:

    Sadly if history is any judge in a decade Republicans will be agitating for 3/4ths of that 8 point plan and we’ll be looking back at The Onion as once again being a disgustingly accurate predictor of US lunacy.

    (It won’t be 100% because the Onion put a truly ludicrous thing in this time to ensure that no Republican will take up the banner. No Republican is ever going to suggest raising the price of a fishing license to $140K.)

    They might as more fish keep dying off.

    Like in Sherwood Forest, you can’t have the “poors” getting sustenance at the expense of rich peoples hobbies.

  6. cpinva:

    a little self-serving there, i notice they kept print journalism as one of the three necessary school subjects.

    yes, change the banner to read RNC, and you’d barely notice the difference.

  7. JKTHs:

    Step One gets the Very Serious Seal of Approval.

  8. rm:

    Indeed. It will no longer be called a fishing license; it will be an Executive Fisheries Management Freedom Contract.

  9. c u n d gulag:

    Signed into law as “The Right to Fish Act.”

  10. DrDick:

    Conservative self-parody has reached sufficient levels that it is no longer even possible to parody them.

  11. somethingblue:

    +1

  12. Fraxin:

    Dammnit man, now it’s inevitable
